Hey Jarrett, I think we may fixed our caching issue (fingers crossed).
Just in case anyone else was having a similar issue with WP Super Cache, what we did is change from Legacy caching to mod_rewrite and hit the “Update mod-rewrite rules” button down at the bottom of the Settings page. Now, instead of having a bunch of yellow warning boxes telling us there’s a problem, we can actually select mod_rewrite (the recommended setting) and the warning boxes have all disappeared.
Since you were so helpful before, I’m wondering if you might be able to help us troubleshoot one more layout issue with our forums front page.
Currently, we have 5 main sections of our forum, with one of them (the Cafe) having the majority of our activity. With your help, we were able to at least separate the 11 forums inside the Cafe onto separate lines, but now, instead of showing a count for the number of topics and posts per forum, there is only one line for the entire Cafe that displays on the front page.
In essence, it’s one single summary for the most important part of our forum!
Can you (or anyone else) tell me how to show the number of topics and posts in the Topics and Posts column, PER forum, by editing the loop-single-forum.php file?
And perhaps also remove those same numbers displayed in parentheses at the end of each forum title?
Thanks so much!
Will do! If I try to switch from legacy caching to mod_rewrite, I get a complicated message saying there’s a conflict in our .htaccess file, so I’m thinking that’s probably it.
But I’ll let you know!
I think it’s still some kind of caching issue. We’ve got WP Super Cache installed and there may be issues with that, as well as the need to edit something in our .htaccess file, which i can’t find!
Will be talking to our hosting company tomorrow and hopefully we can pinpoint the problem! Thanks again….
We had gConverter do it. They did a good job, except for the fact that we had to hire someone else to assign roles to all of the users because participants couldn’t see any of the topics.
Also, in order to make the forums work, we had to first make them public, then private, then public again.
In our cafe, newer posts will show up, then somehow it keeps reverting back to a post that’s 35 days old, by the same person!
I finally just added a test reply to her post, so it would stop.
It’s only happening in the forum.
We just ported the whole thing over from vBulletin to bbpress and are obviously still working out the kinks.
The only other problem we’re having is that the front page doesn’t always show the latest post. Sometimes it does, then sometimes it goes back to a post that’s over a month old.
We can’t figure it out and it’s affecting participation, because then it seems like it’s dead in there, when there’s really new activity. Any ideas?
Thanks again, Jarret. The plugin was never working before, so I guess it’s a non issue…
I’ll go into C panel and find the file you mentioned. Really appreciate your help!
Also, something to note: just today, we uninstalled, then reinstalled the bbpress Genesis Extend plugin, because we cannot get it to work – or even show up anywhere.
It’s not under the Genesis menu or Genesis Settings. Not under WP Settings either.
Don’t know if that’s relevant, but thought I’d mention it.
I did a search for “list” and “loop” in the child theme files and no luck. Here’s a list of our bbpress files:
bbPress – Create Topic Page Template
bbPress – Forums (Index) Page Template
bbPress – Statistics Page Template
bbPress – Topic Tags Page Template
bbPress – Topics (Newest) Page Template
bbPress – Topics (No Replies) Page Template
bbPress – User Login Page Template
bbPress – User Lost Password Page Template
bbPress – User Register Page Template
And sorry, I meant the files for bbpress above, in terms of where I was looking.
Sorry to sound like an idiot, but when I open different php files or CSS files, I’m doing a search inside the code by using Command F to find it. Is there another way to find the code I need to change?
Thanks for your help, JarretC!
We’re using the Genesis theme with the Serenity child theme.
Which file should this go into, exactly? There are a ton of php files and then two CSS files, which don’t seem to have anything in them.
I looked in Theme Functions and did a search for the first line of code you mentioned, but couldn’t find it.
Also, not sure how I would have my own theme made…
In case anyone else is having this problem, we just removed AddThis altogether (lost all our likes!) and started using the Socialize plugin for social media.
It has a setting that you can uncheck for Forums and voila – problem solved!
