In reply to: Guide for making bbpress not so unusably slow ?
Thank you all.
@Lynqoid: Well, gtmetrix did point to something in the right direction, but didnt really speed up the site. But thanks.
@netweb: Thanks. Looking forward to 2.6 and hoping – but it is really slow in my setup. Simply would not be useable. Although I plan to use quick cache for not-logged in users ….. Logged-in users would still be experiencing the slowness.
@johnjamesjocaby: My browser seems to go back and forth and being redirected … ? As I recall – this has been discussed earlier ….. ?
But to my question – Is there a guide for speeding it up ? Recommendations regarding htaccess etc ?
Thank you all.
I am too stupid.
I put in the meta-values php and then the other snippet – but same happens. It shows all topics and doesnt respect the connection.
Sorry – I forgot the custom metabox – perhaps because I dont know how to do it ? So I didnt follow through – do you know how to make that connection to the forum_id by custom metabox ?
But it pulls in the topics – nice and fast. Its just every topic.
@Lynq. Thanks again. But it doesnt cut it. But almost – i tried putting it in my post.php and it doesnt care about the postmeta thing – it just pulls in all the latest topics. I will try some more.
I have been working around it and noticed that when converting from forum topic to post – then the topic and reply simply got the post or page as parent – so perhaps it is already possible to have topics for posts in stead of forum ? More than one that is – because bbpress for topics already allows for one topic only per post.
Does anyone know if it is already possible within the system itself ? That it just has to be enable somehow ? Or is it just in the planning ?
Oh, just to be clear: Actually I dont need a list of the forums – I need a list of the topics from a forum that i have made a relation to. As if I used a widget Recent topics from X forum.
@Lynq – help me more… (smiling)
How can I check what is in the post meta data ?
And would that be a template tag I put in my post.php-template like:
<? bbp_list_forums( array (‘forum_id’ => ”) );?>
Been there done that thought. But as you rightly point out – I want everything or most to be done via the standard post type. Right now I can simply creta a new forum by typing in the title of the post and the forum is automaticlly pulled in by the plugin Posts 2 Posts by scribu. So actually all I need is to fetch the topics from tht specific forum that I have also created a relation to. So we are almost there.
Have you seen hypercomments.com ? Another benefit is that comments can be made vailable to the public – whereas forum topics are restricted to members.
And as anpother pointer – see http://simile.mit.edu/exhibit/examples/presidents/presidents.html
Which is this piece of supercool software: http://simile.mit.edu/exhibit/
But thanks again Lynq.
Hijacking my own thread:
Anybody has an answer for this ?
1. When creating a post or page I create a relation to a topic-tag, and then use that topic-tag as a “forum” and linking/fetching it on thepost or page itself. Is that what you are saying ? So how could I create a relation from post/page to topic-tag when posting ? Could there be a way to enable topic-tags for the standard post-type perhaps so a meta-box would occur beneath the standard post tag ? Or should I just create another custom taxonomy ?
It is a very good solution, Gautam. Beautiful and simple. Thank you.
Yes, I know. Thanks.
That is an alternative solution, but as pointed out not what I am looking for.
@To the thread
Just to make it clear – I dont want an entire bbpress-installation for every post or page. But some kind of automation, so I would not have to insert a forum manually by shortcode. It is just another way of commenting more focused like in the bottom of amazon.com when you are iewing a book for example.
It is not a big problem as such. But it is obvious to replace the wordpress-comment system which is totally hopeless and lacking for a blogging platform. It is amazing that wordpress doesnt have any creative thoughts on commenting. WordPress should have invented disqus – not disqus. Disqus is really useful – but disqus takes control from you. P2 has some, sure.
Thanks for any input,
Could you write a couple of more lines – Im not sure I understand. But actually, That would a bit like hypercomments – If one could only make topics as comments and then the topics up for discussion would be fetched back by shortcode. Are you thinking about the way wordpress supportforums are working now ?
The point was more to find some kind of way between blogcommenting that many times becomes such a stupid form of intellectual exchange, because it has become custom to not really think about what you want to bring attention to. Cheering, fanclubbing, “yeah i think so too” mixed in with people trying to decipher the thoughts revealed in an article, newspost, blog post or whatever. By making them type in a title and making and independent “in its own right”-kinda-style – they will be forced to be more focused and people considering responding will have to choose which comment to comment on – which again will make it more focused – because one thinks – why would I respond to this ?
But, seriously – this is awesome: http://hypercomments.com. Note the thing with marking a part of the text and it automatically becomes a topic separate from the comments – that is seriously good !
And besides using posts 2 posts plugin by scribu you can get some of the way – by making a forum quickly when making a post – check it out: https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/posts-to-posts/
It is a matter of convenience because you can just make a forum and then include by shortcode. Alternatively one could display the category-text that belongs to the forum while listing the topics belonging to it. That is using the category as an aricle in its own right and somehow displaying it when listing the topics.
