I’ve not had a good laugh on these forums in months
VanillaForums (v1) was a good effort, for a small few it matched their needs well, and certainly had a community that wanted to drive it on. v2 though, and it’s 2.5 year development cycle, has been quite disasterous with some brilliant spin.
The plan to move to a custom built platform “Garden” (their equivalent of backPress) was re-written twice over 2 years, and just 3 months ago they also changed how all v2 forums are themed – by using an external templating system called Smarty instead of PHP.
That said, it’s not like bbPress is without it’s issues either (people in glass houses etc…), but given the poor state of a just released and not brilliantly tested software thats taken over 2 years to throw together… I’d probably not make too many assumptions that it’s going to impact other software in the same vertical, ha, and I’d sure as heck not tell people to pack their bags
This version (original) of bbPress isn’t compatible tiwh BuddyPress. I’m afraid you have to ask on the BuddyPress forums for how they fix these thingsIn reply to: [tags] Scrollbar for tag list
It creates a scrollbar inside a DIVIn reply to: Favicon
Could you give us a link?
Could you tell us what version of the browser you’re on?
(did you google, cos FF3.6 had this issue from 3.6.2 to 3.6.6)
Is your favicon in the root?
Is your favison called via code?
It’ll be a nice quick fix if you could give us some more info
Finished is not quite the word i’d use to describe it, but it works as intended.
I generally like to scope out all of the thing I want a plugin to do, and then I can add to it incrementally, which is why there are 4 functions with no code in them (but they’re never called, it’s more placeholders).
The code isn’t released under a GPL yet, not that I’d try submitting them here anyway given past horrors with the system, but please feel free to use it on your forums Bob, and shout me if you’ve any issues.In reply to: Sub Forums
I’m sorry, i’ve gotten it wrong.
I thought you wanted notification of a first post (or a new topic) and not every reply. So i’ve caused some confusion, sorry.
It seems to me that everything is working well, just not in the right order for you.
The way it works:
1) New Post
2) A plugin Email’s you
3) Checks and makes spam.
The way you want it to work:
1) New post
2) Check and make spam
3) A plugin Email you if first time poster.
To that end, what you’re looking for is something called “add_action”. It’s the plugin API call. It looks like this:
priority can be left empty (and is then classed as 9? by default) and the lower number is fired first.
The theory is, if you make sure that your “mark as spam” plugin fires before your email plugin (give them numbers 7 and , then you should be ok.
So go through each plugin, looking for the add_action line. See if there’s a time when they both fire at the same “action name”, and then add/change the priority.
Other than that, it seem slike a custom plugin would be the way forward.
HI Pastor Bob,
writing on an phone, so can’t write out full code, but you also want to test for “post_position=1” to check if it’s the first post.
We also have a history of major changes in 0.1 releases. We might indulge in a little bit of inflation with a 2.0.
Matt didn’t give anything firm, or if he did , its in another discussion
I’m in a real positive mood mate, it’s a glorious day here in Edinburgh (ha, that don’t happen that often) during the largest Arts festival in the world, at a time when we have 8 festivals overlapping in 6 weeks. I am like a pig in the proverbial
And if they were subscribed to feeds, most of them would also have subscribed to BuddyPress feeds
That’s a massive presumption matey
All i’m saying is, hasn’t 20 years of the internet as we know it shown us not to presume about users?
or they would be using WordPress (so they may get to know about it from the dashboard)
If they happened to log in on the 20-24 hours it was on the dashboard
Which gets harder depending on timezones and y’know life. If it was up there for a week, well yeah, I think you’d be closer to being right
All i’m saying is this JJJ: Maybe when you make posts about bbPress on other websites, you could do us a favour and make a little 2 line forum post on this website too. All that’s needed is “hello folks, FYI, link”.
From my point of view, this covers 100% of bbPress users, where are not doing it covers less than 100%. To me, in a really positive sense, taking 1 minute to post “FYI, link, ” and make sure no-one feels lift out is really positive
bbPress users have a history of hearing things 3rd/4th/5th hand, and rarely do those things turn out positive. I believe that JJJ’s plug-in will be positive to countless people, and i’m positive he’s the man for the job. Lets communicate about something positive, in a positive way, to all users
As opposed to posting about software X, on software Y’s website, and hoping people use software Z to read the news about it for the 24 hours it showed it. That’s just comical – haha actually I wonder if there’s already a dilbert comic that covers such convoluted messaging…
Have a great day folks, i’m off to see my 3rd favourite comic ever tonight
Bro, there is zero doubt in my mind that you were always thinking of us, and your plug-in will please a great many people.
since both blogs feed into the WP dashboard you’re all going to see it regardless
But is it ok to suggest that not everyone who uses bbPress, also checks a WordPress install’s Dashboard that regularly? Especially as your post was bumped off that list in under 24 hours (it only shows the last 5 posts pulled in from entire 31 feeds it aggregates).
We’re not afflicted matey, thankfully many of us are in good health, but it’s hard sometimes to not find it difficult when we’re treated with presumptions.
Having to log into a WordPress install once every 24 hours ad infinitum just to check if someone’s posting bbPress news on another website, just seems a little daft.
Maybe when you make posts about bbPress on other websites, especially ones that have more info than has been posted here, you could do us a favour and make a little 2 line forum post on this website too. All that’s needed is “hello folks, FYI, link”.In reply to: Importing phpBB into bbPress
You will lose some data in the transfer (attatchemnts as I recall was a biggie for some folks), but in theory none of the important data.
It also depends on how much you want to integrate with WordPress whether this is a good idea or not.
I’d loook at:
[deleted: realised who i was replying to, sorry]
Who knows, its not like we get told anything, we just give up our time trying to help and answer support requests – and every 6 months Matt turns up and tells us we should have known everything all along ( usually, by Magic or telepathy, i guess we’re meant to know which ;-] ).
I’m a big fan of gremlins (well of Mogwai anyway)
Just real happy it’s working for you.
KevIn reply to: URL problems in the installation
Could you give us the link to your forums and we’ll have a look?
It’s really unlikely a single user could have done something.
Excuse the obvious nature of the questions, and i aprecaite that you’ll have answered them in teh text above, but this isn’t a normal everyday bug, so we’re starting from scratch:
1) What version of WordPress?
2) What version of bbPress?
3) Are they integrated (share login cookies)?
4) Are they “deep integrated” (can call functions in the other program)?
5) Do you have the latest version of akismet on both WP and bbP?
6) Can you log into WordPress?
7) Can your other users log into WordPress?
Can people register with WordPress?
9) Can people register with bbPress?
10) Can people log into bbPress?
11) Have to tried disabling all plugins and trying again?
12) If so, have to tried switching to the default theme?
13) Are you using a premium (paid for) theme?
14) Are you using buddyPress?
15) What has changed since Friday?
16) What WordPress plugins are you using?
17) Are you using WP MultiSite?
18) Did you know that “registered users only” plugin has been marked by others as not working for WP3.0.1 on the plugin repository?
I know it’s a load of info, sorry, but it will help.
Very few, if any, bbPress plugins change the “role” for bbPress users, simply due to it’s rather convoluted nature.
Hopefully, we’ll get this fixedIn reply to: Avatars, more plugins than images.
This means that users on your forum must completely leave your forum and resort to a different service to create their picture. Then they must go back, and combine these.
If you re-read the original poster’s requirements, you’ll see this is what he’s after. He asked for people to NOT upload pictures to his website or forum.
Only thing is,
– I don’t want anybody to upload files.
Sorry Robo, i know it’s confusing, apologies if i wasn’t clear. You’re not using bbPress.
bbPress is a standalone forum that can integrate logins/users with WordPress. It sits in its own folder.
You’re installing the bbpress plugin for buddypress which is a plugin for wordpress. (yes, it’s a nightmare that they have the same name)
If you’re in “wp-content/plugins” in any way shape or form, we can’t really help on this forum. I know it’s confusing because someone at autoMATTic decided to keep the same name for a totally serarate project, but thats where we are.
Anyway, the Buddypress folks are top notch, and they’ll sort you out v quickly
I’d hasten a guess that “registered-users-only” is more than likely the issue here.
When did you upgrade to WP3.0.1?
If something changed in teh last 6/7 days, thats most likely it.
This bbPress is not the BuddyPress plugin called bbPress, although that is based on this bbPress (it’s bbpress without backPress).
Your best bet is to ask on the Buddypress forum.
Good LuckIn reply to: Still looking for 4 (working) plugins
I’ve now asked about these in two other bbPress forums (subsections of WP forums)
I’d not waste my time there. The WP.org forums are really great for WordPress stuff (if you now the right terminology), but quite useless for bbPress.
Since I started using RSS (which most email clients and phone now handle nicely), I’ve never had a need for this.
It’s a fairly simple one to code though (with pitfalls), if there was a big enough need for it.

Yeah, that won’t work, and isn’t being worked on.
Matt annouced in December that it was going to be part of 1.1, but then ran away when people disagreed with him (can you believe a moderator actually asked him a question – sacrilege) and started telling people not to use bbpress while he was making KeyNote speeches at WordCamps.
It should be working in the trunk version of 1.1, which will be the last version of bbPress to be released.
After The Deadline
I typed “after the deadline bbpress” into google and this came up:
Whether it will work with the plugin by a different author i’ve no idea. In honesty, IE7’s the only browser I have that doesn’t have a spell check built in natively, and its got it via an addon; so i’ve never really seen the need for this. Clearly others have though.
Someone said that part of the reason they haven’t been updated is because the authors are waiting for the new ‘plugin’ version of bbPress to be released
Sadly the WordPress (small p dangit) plugin will eradacate all code/plugins/themes/support from the current version. Nothing will be compatible.
A large part of why things aren’t updated is because bbPress looked like it was dying. The decision to rewrite a large chunk of code and go with BackPress made the majority of plugins not work overnight, and the initial thrust of 1.0 made it not worthwhile to upgrade them.
If we assumed they worked once, and all they’re not doing now is the notification part, you’d think that wouldn’t be very difficult to fix.
Awesome, i look forward to you coding them and releasing them. Thanks for offering JoeIn reply to: forums disappearedIn reply to: I need help with integration
I’ve never had to define the “COOKIEHASH” before.
The wordpress integration plugin is quite useless, its really only there to give you the cookiepath as “/”.
