    Use the bbp_get_user_role_map filter, to map WordPress roles to bbPress roles.

    You can use WordPress’s REST API to interact with forums/topics/replies the way you can with any WordPress posts, but that may not be ideal (and some of the verbiage does not directly translate very well.)

    That API has only been fully available since WordPress 4.7, so we are seriously starting the process of exploring what a dedicated bbPress API should look like. Some work has gone into this already, but there is more to do.

    You’ll need to install the bbPress plugin, and convert your old bbPress 1.x forums to bbPress 2.5 (soon to be 2.6.)

    Then you can disable the BuddyPress legacy forum component, and continue using the newer better faster stronger bbPress plugin.

    bbPress 2.0 and higher comes with a (pretty great) conversion tool to help you migrate from several different forum softwares, including bbPress 1.x. We used that exact same tool all across WordPress.org, so we are confident that it works very well.

    If you create a page with the same slug as your forum index, you can use either the [bbp-forum-index] or [bbp-topic-index] shortcode in your page content to output the list you desire.

    bbPress won’t complain, and you’ll be able to customize the page title and content if you desire.

    It’s not exactly a hidden trick, but it’s what we use here on bbPress.org and seems to work OK. If that approach is creating a broken breadcrumb, that’s definitely a bug.

    You were correct that it was caught because of the number of links.

    I just approved the pending post.

    My guess is the cookie hashes probably changed.

    Make sure that all of your cookie settings in wp-config.php actually match what you want/need for them to be. If you need to share cookies across many subdomains, you’ll need a . at the beginning of them.

    // Domain & Hash
    define( 'COOKIE_DOMAIN', '.domain.com'        );
    define( 'COOKIEHASH',    md5( COOKIE_DOMAIN ) );

    That’s a neat plugin, @robin-w.

    I haven’t reviewed it, but the premise seems sound. Integrate it with the Customizer, and it might be a neat addition to the default template pack!

    Thanks for trying things out. What isn’t working? It’s not saving? It’s not giving them moderation capabilities? The form should pop-up an autocomplete, and I think it verifies usernames and only accepts valid ones. It ends up saving the user ID, not the username, because usernames can be changed but changing IDs would break stuff.

    I believe we fixed this in the 2.6 beta.

    We use that short code here, too, so it’s working OK for us. I’ll need to look into the links. Possible they moved to an action, or a different template part at some point.

    @senatorman – do your database backup first, then swap from alpha to beta, then run the bottom three upgrade tools, for favorites and subscriptions (I forgot about forum subscriptions.)


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    * Do a database back-up however you’re comfortable
    * Visit WP Admin > Tools > Forums
    * Run the last 2 repair tools, one at a time, maybe from a beefier server if you have one available
    * Confirm that your favorites & subscriptions work as expected

    If something goes wrong:
    * Restore your data from your back-up
    * Go back to 2.6 alpha

    Honestly, I’m being a little paranoid. The tools are fine. But… because hosting environments are so different everywhere, it’s hard to rule out any edge-cases ahead of time.


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    @senatorman If you have more than 10,000 users, you’ll need to manually run favorites & subscriptions migrations from someplace you are safe doing so. Otherwise, totally safe.

    If you’re running a multisite installation with bbPress running on all of them, the upgrade routine will attempt to run on all of them, so there’s that too (though it’s a very unlikely situation.)


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    @senatorman The improvements here on bbPress.org were not-insignificant.

    We have 25k topics, 100k replies, and many more in spam/trash/drafts/revisions, amounting to around 180k total posts.

    It’s not a huge-huge install, but not exactly small either.

    @reedy I’m here if you need help. Can also use the #bbpress channel in WordPress’s Slack instance.

    Beta 2 is out to fix these embarrassing little oversights.

    The upgrade tools can be ran manually by visiting: Tools > Forums (they are at the bottom)

    On WordPress.org, I manually ran a custom, stripped down version of this same tool, but mostly because 8 million users is a lot to trust without some supervision.

    > create the ability to have a topic relate to multiple Forums

    bbPress currently requires that all topics have some parent forum, but you are not forced to expose this hierarchy in your theme/design if you’d rather not.

    Custom taxonomies are the way to go, and there is a goal to eventually migrate the “Forum” post type to be a taxonomy instead, now that individual forums can have their own meta-data.


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    @reedy – If your install is experiencing slowness issues, I’d *love* it if there were a way for you to try the 2.6 beta. You are exactly the best person to be the most helpful, and confirm that our improvements actually make the same differences for others that we are seeing for ourselves.

    Is there a way I can help you safely give it a try?

    Hi there @iprg,

    Sorry, but there isn’t yet. It wouldn’t be too difficult for us to implement this feature inside of wp-admin, though.

    Are you comfortable creating a feature request over at https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org? If so, that’s the best place to log this idea, and we’ll try and get it into a future release.

    I think I understand the expectation here, but that isn’t how it’s currently designed to work.

    More specifically, bbPress subscriptions do not discriminate against the user’s current role. If they were subscribed before, they’ll be subscribed until they unsubscribe.

    To achieve the behavior you desire, a plugin could be written that either:

    • Filters bbp_topic_subscription_user_ids and removes users with/out desired roles
    • Filter bbp_set_user_role and permanently delete all subscriptions when the new role matches one that qualifies

    Maybe a combination of both of the above, if you need to account for already removed users, but want to clean-up future role changes.


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    It’s still a nice idea, to be able to unsubscribe from all topics & forums.

    I’ll make a note of this, and maybe we can get it into a future release.
