  • In reply to: reCAPTCHA for bbPress

    I tested it out and it sort of works but when I miss just a few characters in the captcha, I still pass the test. It’s only when the thing I type is way off that it works. That’s probably how reCaptcha has it set up though. I guess it should be fine since bots shouldn’t be able to read images. We’ll see. Thanks for taking the time to code it into a plugin though dchest. It’s just what I’ve been looking for.

    It does clash with bbPM though. I’m not sure what it is that’s doing it, but I can’t use both this and bbPM together.

    In reply to: Plugin: Avatar Upload

    This plugin is simply wonderful. The only problem is, if a user uploads an animated gif, it doesn’t appear animated. Is there a way to fix this problem?

    Nevermind. I figured it out. All I needed to do was create this:

    <?php if ( !bb_is_user_logged_in() ) : ?>


    <?php endif; ?>

    A simple not was all it took.

    I tried changing the date format using fel64’s wonderful plugin. It works great except the time is inaccurate. I have the timezone displayed. It shows the eastern time zone apparently. The problem is, the time displayed is obviously off by a lot. It says I posted something at 3:22 PM EST when in reality I posted it at 9:30 AM central time, which is 10:30 AM eastern time. Does anyone have an explanation for this? To see what I mean, go to . Hover over the freshness to see the exact time.

    Edit: The timezone is supposed to be GMT, but apparently it’s displayed as EST. Strange. Is there a way to display the time zone selected by the user or hardcoded on config.php?

    I figured out how to get the Latest Discussions view. Thanks. You were right. It was in the My Views plugin. I just had to activate “Topics I’ve started/ Topics I’ve Participated In”. Thanks again for all your help.

    Thanks. Would you need to have WordPress in order to use the Latest Discussions plugin? You have WordPress and bbPress integrated together, and the plugin’s page said that the plugin will generates Latest Discussion list from your bbpress forum into your WordPress. I’m not using WordPress on my forum.

    Oh. I didn’t know there was a Latest Discussions plugin. But it seems to work only up to .8 and I have version .83. I tried the latest version of My Views, but it didn’t include a Latest Discussions file. What bbPress version do you use?

    I think my avatars are an okay size. Thanks for joining my forum by the way.

    latest-discussions is nowhere to be found. Could it be anything else?

    That looks like it should work. I have this in my-views.php though


    The problem is, every time I put /view/latest-discussions/ or /view/latest-discussions/page/2 , it redirects me to the index page.

    Thanks HowToGee. I actually have the MyViews plugin already, but I didn’t know there was a page to the latest discussions view. How do I link to that, like what’s the URL for it?

    By the way, thanks chrishajer for your help. I still haven’t figured it out yet though.

    I’d like to have a pagination for older topics on the front page.

    For example, what I’m looking for is this type of navigation:

    1 2 3 … 25 Next ยป

    like the one on this forum.

    In reply to: Permalinks

    I’m using the private messaging plugin but now I have to add code to my .htaccess page. I’m stumped as to what to write because I don’t understand .htaccess. Could anyone translate this for me?

    The first link’s number changes for different messages. For example, the first message will have /message?id=1 and the second one will have /message?id=2.

    The second link actually works fine…i guess it doesn’t need to be fixed but it’d be great if it could look differently.

    Thanks for your time,


    Never mind. I figured out how it works. I needed to change the status of who can create a signature.

    How do you go to “New Ticket”? Like where is it?

    Thanks so much! That worked wonderfully!

    In reply to: subforums and markup

    Is there a way to only display sub forums after clicking on the main forum link?

    Nevermind. I created a plugin that I can modify anytime I want. Here’s the code if you’re interested. You don’t even need the add image plugin.

    Plugin name: Extra html tags
    plugin author: Sue
    plugin description: Allow extra html tags, even depreciated

    function allow_extra_tags( $tags )
    $tags['a'] = array(
    'href' => array(),
    'title' => array(),
    'rel' => array(),
    'target' => array(),
    'alt' => array()
    $tags['i'] = array();
    $tags['b'] = array();
    $tags['del'] = array();
    $tags['p'] = array(
    'style'=> array()
    $tags['strike'] = array();
    $tags['img'] = array(
    'src'=> array(),
    'alt' => array(),
    'title' => array(),
    'width' => array(),
    'height' => array(),
    'style' => array()
    $tags['font'] = array(
    'style' => array(),
    $tags['br'] = array();
    $tags['h1'] = array();
    $tags['h2'] = array();
    $tags['h3'] = array();
    $tags['h4'] = array();

    return $tags;
    add_filter( 'bb_allowed_tags', 'allow_extra_tags' );

    I tried what post #2 did but it doesn’t work. I’m not sure why but it doesn’t. If only you can set the width in the <img/> tag.

    Nevermind. I figured it out. I needed a .htaccess file, and it needed to contain this:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /

    RewriteRule ^forum/([^/]+)/page/([0-9]+)/?$ /forum.php?id=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^forum/([^/]+)/?$ /forum.php?id=$1 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^topic/([^/]+)/page/([0-9]+)/?$ /topic.php?id=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^topic/([^/]+)/?$ /topic.php?id=$1 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^tags/([^/]+)/page/([0-9]+)/?$ /tags.php?tag=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^tags/([^/]+)/?$ /tags.php?tag=$1 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^tags/?$ /tags.php [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^profile/([^/]+)/page/([0-9]+)/?$ /profile.php?id=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^profile/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/?$ /profile.php?id=$1&tab=$2 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^profile/([^/]+)/([^/]+)/page/([0-9]+)/?$ /profile.php?id=$1&tab=$2&page=$3 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^profile/([^/]+)/?$ /profile.php?id=$1 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^view/([^/]+)/page/([0-9]+)/?$ /view.php?view=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^view/([^/]+)/?$ /view.php?view=$1 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^rss/?$ /rss.php [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^rss/forum/([^/]+)/?$ /rss.php?forum=$1 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^rss/topic/([^/]+)/?$ /rss.php?topic=$1 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^rss/tags/([^/]+)/?$ /rss.php?tag=$1 [L,QSA]

    RewriteRule ^rss/profile/([^/]+)/?$ /rss.php?profile=$1 [L,QSA]


    Links to forum topics are broken as well. I’m unable to post topics. Here’s the url to my forum

    I’m having the same problem. I can’t get my profile page or tags page to show up. They’re both broken links for some reason.
