In reply to: bbPress 2.2.4 Released
beta1 of 2.3 now allows image embedding.
Does that capability support uploading of other file formats? Or is it just limited to images?
One of the pain points for bbPress for my uses is the lack of a universal file upload system. I know there is a plugin or two, but they didn’t appear compatible with 2.0+
Actually, ironically, and very anti-climatically, I found a plugin that handles all this.
Enable the registration checkbox in the widget, and you can use a widget to register. In plugin settings, you can set the post-registration landing page for each multisite site.
Biggest plugin donation, ever! (Well, from me at least).
I noticed a recent bbPress update touted improved Multisite flow support – any progress on this issue?
Doesn’t look like it from my initial testing, but fingers are crossed hoping something official is in the works.
Unfortunately, I have spent weeks trying to figure out this issue myself.
The problem is bbPress, WordPress, and WordPress multisite don’t communicate well with registration. bbPress 2 appears to call wp-signup inline in the page.
This would be typically be a good thing, unfortunately, WordPress multisite’s registration is the problem. It was based around WordPress.com not the typical site/network owner’s needs.
My fix, which admittedly, I’m still implementing myself, was to create a custom wp-signup.php, do a 301 redirect to the WordPress wp-signup, and drop the wp-signup in a custom theme folder, which itself is designed to just serve the signup form.
It’s still far from perfect. When someone is finished signing up, I basically have to present them with a menu that says “you’re signed up, here’s a list of our sites, please click back to the one you originally came from.” There is no breadcrumb support in Multisite to return a user, after registration, to the multisite site that they originated from, it always by default drops them to the default site.
In the end, a custom theme at least lets me control the process, and a custom wp-signup lets me present users with a menu of my sites to chose from, in the hopes they will be able to spring back to the site they came from, and then be registered.
Can’t fault bbPress for this one, the only way I could see bbPress fix this, would be to completely replicate and track the wp-signup flow in-plugin. I think that would be a great idea, but would take tons of effort. The benefit, of course, would be fine-grained control, and remove the need to do the dozens of hours of effort I’ve had to do (and can’t easily post/replicate for others… not to mention constantly having to patch multiple files during each WordPress update).
