    Hey there, sorry that you’re having this trouble.

    Can you include a link to your forums so we can check them out?

    Topic pagination can sometimes be thrown off by non-public replies, especially for moderators that have the ability to see them.

    Pagination is also somewhat weird with hierarchical/threaded replies. That’s been a known issue since the beginning. It’s based on how WordPress does it with Comments, but has some extra behaviors due to the front-end nature of topic moderation.

    Sorry again. We will figure it out!

    I’ve perhaps uncovered a backwards compatibility issue with third party plugins that were using the now deprecated blacklist function.

    In addition, everyone having issues here should remember that bbPress inherits many of the WordPress Discussion (Comments) settings. Moderation words, number of links, allowed tags, and a few others. If topics and replies are getting caught in moderation, comments of the same content would be also.

    That said, the default behavior is NOT to land every single post in Moderation. If that is what is happening, something is broken.

    Sometimes the docs could be more clear. It’s hard to find a good balance between educating quickly and being a full-on tutorial. Glad it’s working now though!

    Caching plugins misbehaving could definitely contribute to problems in a lot of areas.

    Private and Hidden forums also do work a little bit strangely, especially without BuddyPress Groups on top of them to manage them a bit better, and especially when you have a mix of public and private within the same branch of a forum tree.

    Imagine, if you will:

    Public 1
    |--Private 1
    |--|--Public 2
    |--Public 3

    Now, I login and create a Topic in the Private 1 forum.

    How should that bubble up to the parent Public 1 category?

    Then someone creates a topic in the Public 2 forum. How can a public forum even exist under a private forum?

    bbPress won’t prevent you from doing these things, but it won’t really work very well when you do.

    I think, to work best, we could never cache these values ever, because they’d always be based on what the currently logged in user can see, instead of being attached to the forums or the categories like they always have been.

    But for now, for performance reasons, these Freshness values are working as intended, even though they aren’t a real great experience for Private and Hidden Forums underneath other Public ones.

    I don’t really understand why you need 2 separate pages for your forums.

    If you create a page that matches the slug for your forum root, it will use that page instead, as well as the title.

    Then, you can use bbPress shortcodes to fill in the content.

    This is what we do here on bbPress.org, and it works pretty well.

    Could be that your roles or capabilities are broken.

    Did you install a plugin that modified them?

    Today or tomorrow.

    This will be fixed in 2.6.2. Sorry for the trouble!

    Since the problem appears to be with a third party plugin, you’re unlikely to get a lot of support from the bbPress development team here for code that isn’t theirs.

    In addition, you have not clearly stated what the actual problem is. You have clearly stated your complaints and how you feel about them, but you haven’t included instructions on how to replicate your problem.

    Naturally, these forums are using bbPress, and we aren’t having the same moderation issues that you are. That doesn’t mean there isn’t something wrong, simply that no one knows where to look unless you can show them.

    Any update on this?

    Others have the same issue. It appears to be true.

    Fix will be part of 2.6.2 this week.

    Pending content is a funny thing.

    If you tell someone why it’s pending, they’ll post again to try and skirt the filter.

    If you tell them nothing, they’ll post again thinking something is wrong.

    If we can come up with some verbiage, that’s step one.

    Step 2, is where to redirect them. If a topic is pending, you can’t really show them their own pending topic, because it’s not visible to them, at least not the way bbPress works currently.

    Hello, and thanks for the feedback.

    bbPress does not use iconography in the forums or topics lists. Typically images in those locations are used to denote new activity since the user last visited, which is a feature bbPress does not have.

    Looking at your screenshot, bbPress default styling looks nearly identical to it.

    The avatar styling in that screenshot looks custom which forum and site owners are encouraged to do. Customizing communities is super fun.

    The default styling should be refreshed, or a new template pack could be introduced. Either way, it would be nice to have things be a bit prettier.


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    In your category and forum tree, which areas is freshness not updated correctly? Can you repeat the problem 100% of the time? If so, what are the steps to replicate? (For example, that problem isn’t happening here on bbPress.org, so we need to figure out why not.)


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    Sounds like a few different issues. We should work to resolve them together here.

    Do all of you use Category type Forums, where the Category cannot have topics of its own?

    Pretty weird. cc @netweb for a consult on this one. 💜

    @johnjamesjacoby

    It’s hard to see what you mean looking at that query, as there are no site_name type databases before any of the tables.

    Custom prefixes should all be completely accounted for, but I’ll do an audit to be sure and report back.

    The IS NULL meta_key statement is weird.

    Is it possible some other plugin is filtering this query that shouldn’t be?

    bbPress 2.5.10 did fix a bug that was causing maximum title lengths to not be enforced, and this was part of 2.6 as well. It does use '8bit' encoding, but perhaps 'UTF-8' would be better. I think @casiepa is doing some digging to figure this out exactly.


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    You’ll have to write a custom plugin that filters bbp_get_user_role_map and adds a key for the customers role.

    Something like:

    add_filter( 'bbp_get_user_role_map', function( $roles = array() ) {
        $roles['customer'] = 'blocked';
        return $roles;
    } );

    Before these recent plugin updates, it showed the subforums in a vertical list

    This will require some CSS for you to get back. The markup used for separating subforums went back and forth for a little while, and we ultimately settled on something simpler.

    /* Remove comma */
    #bbpress-forums .bbp-forums-list .bbp-forum.css-sep:not(:last-child)::after {
        content: '';
    }
    
    /* Make vertical */
    #bbpress-forums .bbp-forums-list .bbp-forum {
        display: block;
    }
    

    it only displays for 1 of them

    I see now what you mean. It’s fixed, but not completely. Thanks. Will look into this also!

    Everything on your forums looks the way I would expect it to.

    Can you point out with more detail what is not correct? Thanks!

    Sorry, but bbPress 2.6.1 just went out without this fixed.

    (There were a few issues that needed fixing ASAP.)

    As soon as we have this figured out, another new bbPress release will happen.

    Thanks for helping and being patient! 🙏
