anointed – What plugins are you running?
If it’s working on some and not on others, the odds are plugins are to blameIn reply to: bbPress 2.0 – Shortcodes
Both [bbp-single-forum id=ID] and [bbp-single-topic id=ID] include a reply form at the bottom.
The code wasn’t that hard, but there doesn’t seem to be a need, since you’d really want context to your ‘make a new post in the forum’ in that thread, wouldn’t you?In reply to: how to give users who sign up "forum participant"?
Adam – You can use a plugin for that with MultiSite.
That will let you set up a new user to be a specific role per site. As for EXTRA roles, you need another plugin, like https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/members to handle that.In reply to: Changing Profile Picture on THIS forum
Go to gravatar.com and sign up with the same email you use on your account here. Set your avatar there and it will magically show up.In reply to: Deactivating the gavatar
I think you misunderstood. Using the class DISPLAY none tells CSS not to show the avatar
Akismet cannot block by IP – That’s not Akismet, YOU can block by IP in Discussion settings (but those are NOT filtered down to bbPress right now, which means I have to hold off).In reply to: Can I allow users to upload avatars in bbPress 2.0 ?
You’d probably just need a plugin like you have for WordPress to upload avatars like https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-local-avatar/
You may need to fiddle with your theme, depending on how the plugin works, but as bbPress runs via CPTs it should just pull it in.
In the future I’ll look into adhering to the WordPress Discussion settings for restricting comments too.
Yeah, I’m gonna need that too
Akismet’s great for spam (yay!) but keepin’ out the troublemakers…In reply to: Whoa! (bbPress.org 2.0 is live)
Trac’d it – https://trac.bbpress.org/ticket/1275In reply to: Linking to WordPress
Why not just a simple .htaccess redirect? Or this: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/howto-disable-registration
For .htaccess, something like this in your bbpress folder might help:
RewriteRule ^bb-login.php http://www.arguemax.com/wordpress/wp-login.php [L,R=301]
RewriteRule ^register.php http://www.arguemax.com/wordpress/wp-login.php [L,R=301]In reply to: new website doesn't work properly
And the link to the forums in the menu bar suffers from the old breadcrumbs bug (yay for testing). It tries to link to “https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/forums/” which redirects to “https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/” which obviously isn’t real.
The problem is that the link for the forums is
<li><a class="current" href="forums/">Forums</a></li>
It should be
<li><a class="current" href="/forums">Forums</a></li>insteadIn reply to: Akismet False positivesIn reply to: Parse error on installIn reply to: Administration of bbPress in Buddypress

I’m an independent contractor and have worked as a PM/BA for the smallest to the largest companies; and you’re not wrong
That said, Project Management exists for a reason. Its a different skillset from development. And no matter the size of the company or organisation, holding a requirement gathering session and then ignoring the data is just daft.
You’re not wrong either! The thing is, I don’t think bbPress Dev is ignoring the data. They wanted to get an idea from the vocal sort (us) to what we wanted, what we feel is needed, then they agreed and went to design the project in the way that works best for them.
I’ve been VERY closely following the WP 3.0 move (I have two blogs I want to merge into one ‘MU’, and I want to see if I’m better off just sucking it up now or not – It’s a LOT of work to do and not lose users), reading IRC logs daily, monitoring tickets. In doing so, I feel I’ve learned a lot about how the process works. For a moment, I really wanted to piss myself. I’d get really excited about a topic, and then someone would raise valid concerns, talk about goats, and they’re off on a new topic.
Seriously terrifying to watch, when you’re invested.
I’ve had experience herding cats like this before. And I realized this looked exactly like the organizing my old community group used to go through, three to four times a year, to put together a highly complicated event for multiple people, maintaining the element of surprise and yet still making all of the 10 to 50 people who were being rewarded feel special, and putting on a good show. Seriously, I have grey hairs from the 5 years I ran that boat. Glad to be off! The point is this stuff is scary to watch and partake in until you’re used to it. I wish there was another way, but I’ve never found it.
I am also in agreement that “it will turn out fine”, the problem with that is there is no time limit. It probably will turn out fine in the end, or eventually, but how do we, the community (sic) attempt to speed up that process?
Code: Join the IRC dev channel and start putting in tickets for what’s broke, fixes for what you can fix, and suggestions. Even a psudeo-code “This would possibly work better if there was a check for ‘If Admin, then foobar’.” can be helpful. Obviously don’t spam, but I’ve always been of the opinion that the best way to HELP an open source project is to get in and see how you can help. Posting here? A good way to vent worry. Joining the devs, even if, like me, you’re a total hack, is helping.
Documentation: Write a definitive ‘This is how you integrate WP and BB 1.x’ post. Or a good how-to on anything. Pull out the most common errors and make a post about how to resolve them. It’s not GREAT documentation, I admit, but it’ll get people started and, when the doc site picks up, the posts could be lifted and tossed in. It would be nice if TPTB would make a documentation site we could edit, but I understand the nightmare that is. Oy. Not everyone is nice
OpenSource Project ‘management’ is generally terrifying to people used to the rigid structure found in most medium to large businesses. It’s very similar to small company PM, though, and works well for what it is, even though it looks insane and weird and entirely ‘wrong’ to the outside viewer.
Of course the reverse is true as well. The very organized, rigid, PM plans for large companies and projects often are impossible to fit in an OpenSource project and make the people used to the larger ones cry.
It’s just how it is.In reply to: Taking stock of Plugins for v1.0.2
This works fine on my 1.0.2 install:

Per https://wordpress.org/support/topic/350806 he wants a plugin that uploads for both bbPress and WordPress.In reply to: Create bbPress Thread from WordPress Post using RSS
I’ll add in
4) Ability to sort posts per bbPress category, based on WP category
