Pasting HTML and metadata is a WordPress/TinyMCE issue, and not really a bbPress bug to solve. There are WordPress plugins to disable HTML pasting, and we do support them, and we could go as far as including this in core as a helper for people that do turn TinyMCE on.
Odd that this would change seemingly randomly, or overnight. 500 errors could be lots of things, and Robin is correct to try deactivating any recently added plugins to start.
Did you bump up the Replies per page in Screen options maybe? Is it possible you’re trying to load more replies than your available server memory can handle?
These types of faults are typically due to some encoding issue in that post. Sometimes this is from an encoding conversion to UTF8 that was done at some point. Whatever it is, it’s nearly impossible to detect without setting a time limit on queries and bisecting the difference until we can narrow down the offending entry, and skip it. Because queries could naturally take a long time, and because it results in missed data, I’m not comfortable with this approach.
Any of the themes from bbshowcase.org are for the retired version of bbPress (1.x), which is to say it won’t work inside of WordPress, or for bbPress 2.x.
It sounds like this theme added bbPress specific templates to both the parent theme, and the child theme, both of which are overriding bbPress’s default template compatibility (because bbPress will yield to those overrides, which is how you can customize bbPress without needing to hack bbPress.)
Can be a bit confusing at first, especially since there’s no real indication of what is being loaded from where.
You could try installing the WordPress Debug Bar plugin, and then install the bbPress Debug Bar extension: https://wordpress.org/plugins/debug-bar-bbpress/
This will give you some information about what bbPress template is loading from where, but it’s still only providing a small window into a somewhat hidden experience.
I’ve attempted to duplicate this with bbPress 2.5.3 and am unable to.
I changed my replies per page to 3 here:
We’ve started making some progress in 2.6 using a custom taxonomy to map usernames to forums, but I’m not 100% convinced it’s the right way to go.
It might make a good plugin to start. I’ll see what kind of effort that takes, and report back here what I’m able to come up with.
Our navigation is custom built into the header template.
Admin > Users
* Tick the box next to your account
* Use the right-most drop-down and select “Key Master”
* Save the page
I’ll note again that under normal circumstances this should happen automatically when activating bbPress. Sorry it didn’t, and I’m curious to know any other plugins you may have installed (to see if there’s some conflict with one of them that prevented this.)
No issues posting from iPhones or iPad’s here, and I use them both quite often on up-to-date versions of iOS.
bbp_reply_author_link( array( 'sep' => '<br />', 'show_role' => true, 'size' => 100 ) );
To set a good expectation, these forums move relatively slowly. If you’re anxious about replies to this topic, tick the “Notify me” box and you’ll get an email when someone replies without the need to bump the topic.
@a42 this absolutely has NOTHING to do with Heartbleed. It’s so non-related, it’s almost inflammatory to advertise otherwise.
When you activate bbPress, you should be assigned the “Key Master” role, and redirected to the bbPress about page in your dashboard. If that’s not happening, that’s a bug, and you should assign yourself the Key Master role to have access to bbPress’s admin areas.
Unfortunately these type of features will require custom code, likely in the form of a plugin to power them, and theme changes to display them.
Change the default role of new users to be a “Contributor” and let them go to town. That way you can moderate their posts, and publish the ones you want to publish.
Both of those URL’s just show non-English text; no forums.
Seems unlikely you would receive error messages from bbpress.org. Are you able to copy them here? I primarily use Safari on a Mac, and have never experienced issues.
Could easily be done with some JS. Anyone want to try a patch?
This is likely bbPress core, unfortunately. When you post a new reply, we check the topics for freshness so we can update the tree accordingly. We’re working on a fix for the next version, but it involves moving some metadata into the posts table to improve query performance, and we want to make sure to get it right.
You should be fine. You may need to run some of the recount tools afterwards though.
bbPress does perform some elaborate queries which can make things feel slow, especially on sites with many thousands of topics and replies. Installing a caching plugin for WordPress will help, as well as any general PHP performance tuning on the server side.
That will definitely cause you some grief.
pre_get_postsis called on every posts query that fires, even non-bbPress ones.
In this case, you’re filtering every admin query and looking for a meta value that won’t exist for certain post types (like revisions, pages, posts, attachments, navigation menus, etc…)
You’ll want to target your code much more specifically than you are here, so that you’re only matching the correct query conditions for what you’re trying to accomplish. This might be hard if you’re also trying to filter sidebars and widgets, since you want something broad, but not too broad.
