    You know, it’s responses like that, that really tend to make sour what is otherwise the sweet enthusiasm of enjoying being part of a growing project. I mean no disrespect to anyone on this forum; developers, moderators, etc… But quite honestly it’s that type of holier than thou attitude that is going to upset your core audience…

    1. I’m here because I want to be.
    2. I’m here because I can be.
    3. I’m here on my own schedule, just like Sam.
    4. If that’s really how you feel, then the reasons I’m here shouldn’t matter.
    5. This isn’t rushing, this is a valid question; “What is it you say you do here?”
    6. You shouldn’t talk to people like they are children.
    7. Thanks for the… er… warning I guess, Tom Smykowski.

    :/

    You know, at the risk of sounding like a snot, I’ve actually had a similar thought. The only thing stopping me from saying the same thing is that I have no idea what else it is that Sam does. :)

    @ganzua: I predict that you are integrated with WordPress, and that your jQuery isn’t being loaded correctly.

    I will prove this theory by asking for you to add a topic to your favorites on your forum, and report back and let me know if it works. :)

    This is how phpBB already works. ;)

    I think its a good idea though.

    That’s an interesting proposal. I’ll be honest and say I have no experience using any database in a multilanguage situation, but with that being said, how does a database store information in multiple languages, and can bbPress even do something like this? Would certain forums display RTL if necessary? It’s kind of a neat idea really.

    @johnjamesjacoby

    Yeah this has been on the roadmap since .7, and I’m willing to bet once the minor 1.0 tweaks are taken care of that attention will be paid towards getting the JS squared away.

    The reason why “full integration” isn’t ‘recommended’ is because WordPress is pretty sloppy with the number of database queries that it runs, sometimes into the hundreds per page load. bbPress tends to be very efficient in this department, so going from 9 queries to 30 queries for no real reason doesn’t make sense.

    _ck_ made a topic about how to create a query without doing full integration, and I highly recommend using that method in most instances. It will allow you to have much more control over what you’re doing and how it’s doing it.

    For the sake of being easy, full integration will provide you with every available WordPress function and ability, many of which you will never need or use. I personally am using full integration because I’m still poking my head around trying to figure out what’s all possible to do with it, and it does work very well, just a little slower than a non-fully integrated install of bbPress.

    It would actually be really easy to build in bbPress theme functionality into the get_header and get_footer functions of WordPress, and I’ve thought about doing that in a few of the themes I’m making. Let me experiment this evening and report back.


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    Not the header files, but the wp-load.php file. You would want to include the absolute path to that file, so that your administration area is able to access it as well.

    I am not at home currently but I can explain in more detail in a few hours.

    @johnjamesjacoby

    You know, I’ve thought about this type of thing, and I think that bbPress really tries to hide the forum layout as much as possible. It doesn’t surprise me that it would work this way, as super stickies tend to really act like forum wide announcements than as stickies. That being said, showing them in a forum that’s already halfway hidden is a little redundant.

    bbPress really does work much differently than your typical forum, and it takes a little massaging to make it feel like phpBB or vBulletin.

    I think I may try to tackle this plugin when I have more time, because I find myself wanting it more and more.

    I guess I come from the old school, where a webpage is basically just a snazzy interface for a database, so the interface should allow for any kind of manipulation of the database that you’d need, and only stop you from doing something silly. :)

    The title of this post made me chuckle, so I had to chime in.

    If worse really comes to worse, I am willing to assist on a more personal level. I can’t ethically advertise myself or my services here, but if you can google your way into contacting me outside of bbPress.org, I’d do my best to help you.

    …And Joomla, blech… :)

    Check your wp-config.php file, and search for “$table_prefix”

    I’ve got $5 that says you accidentally typed “ltvwff” next to it. :)

    I think the best bet would be to block the inappropriate ones. ;)

    Add to .htaccess

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://(.+.)?crazy-porn-site.com/ [NC,OR]

    @Sam

    Please correct me if I’m wrong, but if you check out http://www.delsolownersclub.com/forums/, the links for the feeds from WordPress seem to point exactly where they should.

    The only problem that I had personally was using wp_enqueue_script('jquery'); in my wordpress functions.php file. I replaced it with

    if (!defined('BB_PATH')) {
    wp_enqueue_script('jquery');
    }

    And all is well again.

    Well, I think that with 1.0a6 it works, because I’m using it with deep integration and it seems to be working just fine. The order that they’re loaded in could be an issue however, as I’ve experienced some issues that I haven’t been able to troubleshoot effectively yet.

    @Tiago

    How did you ditch the WordPress comment system and link the comments to a specific forum topic? Is this an automated process or a clever use of custom fields?


    John James Jacoby

    But why would you ever do such a thing?! :)

    @Steve

    Still sounds like a cookie issue. I would retrace your steps, make sure you’ve got the WordPress Integration plugin installed on the WordPress side of this. Make sure you’ve added all of the cookie info to your config files as specified, etc…

    In my opinion, for usabilities sake, it may make sense to route your log ins and registrations through 1 platform anyhow.

    I get the feeling that this has more to do with slugs and attempted auto renaming and assignments than it does with hardcoding the value into each file, but hardcoding it works for now and brings the capability back.

    Looks like a few changes might be needed unless I’m missing something along the way…

    This makes the favorites load properly for me.

    includes/functions.bb-users.php

    line 221

    FROM

    if ( !empty($user->favorites) ) {

    TO

    if ( !empty($user->bb_favorites) ) {

    includes/class.bb-query

    line 442

    FROM

    $where .= $this->parse_value( 't.topic_id', $f_user->favorites );

    TO

    $where .= $this->parse_value( 't.topic_id', $f_user->bb_favorites );

    line 559

    FROM

    $where .= $this->parse_value( 'p.topic_id', $f_user->favorites );

    TO

    $where .= $this->parse_value( 'p.topic_id', $f_user->bb_favorites );

    Basically, there are a few other places where $user->favorites needs to be changed to $user->bb_favorites.

    So, I’ve got it up and working from doing the above. I’ve never needed to commit a change to the trac before. Should I just open a ticket, or can I change it directly?


    John James Jacoby

    @johnjamesjacoby

    Good call. That alleviates one problem.

    On to the next… Now all of the JavaScript loads properly and when clicking the “add to favorites” link, the ajax kicks in and works as per normal and makes it look like the link was added. The link actually shows in the database as a favorite, but the theme fails to load them correctly.

    I’ve tested this on the stock template also with the same results.

    Removing the WordPress integration from the bb-config.php file brings everything back and they work just fine. Comparing with WinMerge the source of the same page with and without that integration, they are identical. So somewhere something is getting in the way.

    I am using the same plug-in and am doing exactly as Chris has recommended. Note that the user will not be assigned a role on the bbPress side until they actually visit the forums, because WordPress has no way to know that bbPress needs an additional capability.

    I’ve thought about trying to port the plugin over to the bbPress side, but things seem to be working as they are right now and no one has complained about it yet.

    Snip! Nevermind I see how it works…
