This will be fixed in bbPress 2.6.1.
I was able to duplicate this with Page Links To, and am working on a fix.In reply to: 2.6 doesn’t recognise existing WP forum roles
Hey there! Sorry that 2.6 is giving you trouble.
bbPress roles are somewhat tricky, but not too much has changed, so it shouldn’t be too hard for us to figure it out.
We’ll need to see the code that you used to make your custom Roles. If you can include it or link to it here, that will be really helpful.
This will be fixed today in 2.6.1. Sorry for the trouble!In reply to: 2 issues with latest release
Some strings were changed in 2.6.0, and it will take a bit for translators to update things on their end.
Originally you said forums, but now you say subforums.
Subforums not being listed is a known bug and will be fixed in 2.6.1 tomorrow.
Hey there. That’s no good. None of the data for forums/topics/replies gets modified, so there will not be any data loss. But you are definitely correct that backing everything up is always the smart thing to do! Hopefully we can get you back up and running on 2.6.0 ASAP.
Will look into this ASAP. Thanks for letting us know here, and sorry for the trouble.In reply to: bbpress update
Thanks! I’ll look into 1. 2 is kinda just part of how forums work. The queries are filterable though, so you could definitively reliably change this behavior to suit your needs, and order them by just about anything you’d like.
I’m planning on releasing 2.6.1 on Thursday, in the event any other big issues come in. 👍In reply to: Child CSS
Hi there! Is this after updating to bbPress 2.6?In reply to: Thank you for 2.6! finally!
Nothing should break. You may still want to run any upgrades or repairs that show up under Tools > Forums, as one additional Recount tool was added for Hidden Replies per Forum late last week.In reply to: Thanks for the latest version :)
Feel free to leave the feedback anywhere it’s most comfortable for you.
If you found a bug that you are able to consistently reproduce, and you’re comfortable creating a ticket in Trac, by all means! If you’d rather drop your experience in these forums, that’s perfectly fine also.
The forums are usually everyone helping everyone, which makes it great if you’re not sure about what you’re seeing, or if it’s something that doesn’t seem super urgent at the time.
Thanks for going easy on me. And thanks again for helping out. It really means a lot. 👍
Confirmed. Broken in https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3232, which I’ve reopened and will get fixed in 2.6.1. Sorry about that!
Hey Steve, sorry I missed this. I’ll give this a look and report back. Thanks for letting us know!In reply to: BBPress 2.6 Final
It’s out now. Writing the blog post and updating the site imminently!In reply to: Last Post Opens to Blank Page!
Are you using hierarchical replies, by chance? If so, you’re right that not redirecting back to the reply inline (in the middle of the thread) is a little weird.
I’d have to look and see, but I feel like it should be redirecting back to the reply that was just posted. If it can’t determine the page, then the redirect that happens after posting will be back to the last page of the topic.
You may want to try the latest 2.6 release candidate instead:
It includes a few changes to how stickies are queried, and may fix this problem for you.In reply to: Loosing Traffic Due to Glitches
You won’t get much advice about other forum software in these forums, as these forums are for bbPress (not against it.)
The support in these forums is all volunteer based. No one gets paid to be around to help. Everyone is passionate, but no one is obligated. We have great moderators that keep things clean, but your experience is not uncommon – it helps to be your own site admin.
I see you’ve created 6 topics here, 1 of them was asking for some code help, and 2 of them (including this one) are general gripes with (not) getting things working how you’d like them to without anything really to say back?
bbPress is intentionally simple forum software. It’s opinionated but flexible, so you get a pretty basic experience out of the box, but it requires a bit of determination to customize it to do exactly what you want it to.
You’re right that most hosting providers are generally disinterested in helping with websites themselves; they’re in the business of making sure websites work, so they’re not spending much time deep into how plugins and themes look or feel or work with one another. They’ll probably redirect you back here for most bbPress questions.
If you’re the only person running your community, and you’re unable to keep things working on your own, I can understand why you feel the way you do. I can tell you that bbPress.org runs an unmodified version of bbPress that has required very little ongoing maintenance. All we’ve done here is create a WordPress theme to make things feel a little bit more like a forum than a blog. Together with WordPress.org we do have 11 million user accounts and a high volume of concurrent users across multiple different forums.
It sounds like your forums might be more active than ours here, but it’s hard to know exactly what glitches and problems you’re having, and most things aren’t as easy as coding a snippet for you and having you drop it in someplace.
I’m sorry that your experience with bbPress hasn’t been pleasant. I’m not sure what more to say, other than if you keep with it and keep learning, it is a very capable and fun piece of software that helps hundreds of thousands of communities run really smoothly. Hopefully that continues to include yours!In reply to: Posts Can No Longer Be Edited!
Sounds like a hosting or configuration issue.In reply to: Turn off @mentions
Try unhooking them:
remove_filter( 'bbp_make_clickable', 'bbp_make_mentions_clickable', 8 );In reply to: Link structure not working
The breadcrumbs are automatically generated based on the page or archive hierarchy.
Try: Admin > Settings > Forums
Then for all of the Single Slugs, prefix them with
You could also try creating a WordPress Page hierarchy that has “community” as the first slug and “fora” as the second child page, then use a bbPress shortcode in the content of that page.
bbPress.org uses shortcodes on a few archive pages, but in a way where the pagination links already naturally match the permalink & slug structure.
Can you reply and include an anonymized version of the pagination structure that you’re seeing?In reply to: Is BBPress being maintained?
Oh… and it’s true that I spend a lot less time in these forums than I used to.
That isn’t for any particular reason relating to bbPress itself.
