    OK. the problem was with this custom code, which stopped working it would seem..

    //* Correct Gravatars 
    function bp_remove_gravatar ($image, $params, $item_id, $avatar_dir, $css_id, $html_width, $html_height, $avatar_folder_url, $avatar_folder_dir) {
    	$default = get_stylesheet_directory_uri() .'/images/mystery-man.jpg';
    	if( $image && strpos( $image, "gravatar.com" ) ){ 
    		return '<img src="' . $default . '" alt="avatar" class="avatar" ' . $html_width . $html_height . ' />';
    	} else {
    		return $image;
    	}
    }
    add_filter('bp_core_fetch_avatar', 'bp_remove_gravatar', 1, 9 );
    
    function remove_gravatar ($avatar, $id_or_email, $size, $default, $alt) {
    	$default = get_stylesheet_directory_uri() .'/images/mystery-man.jpg';
    	return "<img alt='{$alt}' src='{$default}' class='avatar avatar-{$size} photo avatar-default' height='{$size}' width='{$size}' />";
    }
    
    add_filter('get_avatar', 'remove_gravatar', 1, 5);
    
    function bp_remove_signup_gravatar ($image) {
    	$default = get_stylesheet_directory_uri() .'/images/mystery-man.jpg';
    	if( $image && strpos( $image, "gravatar.com" ) ){ 
    		return '<img src="' . $default . '" alt="avatar" class="avatar" width="60" height="60" />';
    	} else {
    		return $image;
    	}
    
    }
    add_filter('bp_get_signup_avatar', 'bp_remove_signup_gravatar', 1, 1 );

    enable BBpress again, BUT disable that anyone can post,
    let only registered to users post,. and see if it makes any difference,

    @kriskl

    maybe you did not enable an option in wordpress settings to allow registrations?

    our users discovered one (hopefully) reason why they get this message
    “ERROR: Your topic cannot be created at this time”

    If the post contains
    ‘Thank you in advance’

    then their post will be blocked…

    so, how do I unblock this?? so users who don’t know about it, are not affected?

    @kriskl

    Some of our users also report this error – that they cannot post ..
    it is not related to this german word though.. as the site is in English

    and I have no idea why it would happen to them..

    πŸ™

    I can’t replicate it myself, but even a moderator had such problem once..

    Hi, I am having the same problems,
    ( all subscribed forums are in subcategory )

    I did look in the track posts, as you mentioned,
    but I do not quite understand how did you resolve it please πŸ™‚

    thank you for spelling it out for me

    @kriskl

    this code should put sub forums the way you want, add it to your functions.php child theme

    function custom_bbp_list_forums() {
    $args[‘separator’] = ‘<br />’;

    return $args;
    }

    add_filter(‘bbp_before_list_forums_parse_args’, ‘custom_bbp_list_forums’ );


    kriskl

    @kriskl

    I think this code will work if you add it to your functions file

    function custom_bbp_list_forums() {
    $args[‘separator’] = ‘<br />’;

    return $args;
    }

    add_filter(‘bbp_before_list_forums_parse_args’, ‘custom_bbp_list_forums’ );

    Thanks for a nice release.

    Upgrade went smoothly.
    although, it seems my child theme blocks hierarchical replies’ πŸ™

    but not a problem for now. glad about the small speed improvements

    @kriskl

    there is a way to do it, someone posted few lines of code last year.. and it works. BUT I cannot find it now here on the forums, and I can’t remember how it was done :((

    please search bbpress forums

    @kriskl

    there used to be the plugin to add this function, but it does not work in 2.2 bbpress anymore :((

    it would be nice if the plugin was updated as this feature is very very useful

    I would like to bump this topic/request

    It would be really cool if it was possible to subscribe to certain “forums” to receive notifications about new topics..
    we have say, 40 different forums, and users are generally following 3 or 4 at most.. as the others are not of their interest.. and it would help moderators also to be notified when spam messages appear.

    RSS is rather old fashioned solution, and not many people use it, and even google is dropping google reader…

    @kriskl

    sorry to bump this..

    I guess the award was small? I thought it would be easy thing to do for someone who knows bbpress code very well…

    but I think it is very important feature

     

    users coming from other forums Β are lost using bbpress forums..

    and after migrating from buddy press forums to bbpress – Β the usage of bbpress forums dropped by 50% Β πŸ™

    I mean, in new topics….. therefore I suspect users can’t find the button.. / link

    I have created a new page > start a new topic and the link is even in the main menu.. but still it is not good enough unfortunately..

    I may have found the reason for pending posts..

    there were certain words in wordpress (comments) black listed, and I think it has prevented also bbpress new topic/replies being posted automatically

    Hi Jared

    yes, Akismet is running fine.

    it was enabled in bbpress and the problem was there, I have disabled it in bbpress forum settings, and the problem still exists.

    could w3 total cache be to blame?

    Hi,

    I have similar problem.. recent;y discovered over 100 replies pending just after 2 weeks of using bbpress….

    which needless to say, is a lot of pain to approve all of them one by one manually!! πŸ™

    as they are all legit, not spam

    Is it possible to turn OFF pending mode??

    thanks

    Kris

    Hi, I am also trying to convert buddypress to bbpress 2.2

    but in the select platform (in tools Import forums) I can only see Example, vBulletin, Invision, phpbb. and bbPress1

    am I missing something?

    what do I choose to convert from BuddyPress?

    thanks

    Great! thanks for the update netweb.

    I hope Buddypress forums to bbpress plugin is ‘next’ importer in the works πŸ™‚

    @kriskl

    I would disagree.
    there are certain features of old / traditional forums that users like or need
    for example, one omission in current bbpress is “number of views”

    it does influence and show how popular certain topics are.

    we have a large forum, where categories are necessity,.. because in category has 10 or more ‘forums’
    and if they were laid out like traditional forums, it would make it easier for the members to see the whole structure of the forums.. as it is, I had to manually create a table with all the categories/ forums

    (having said that, we are still using buddy press forums.. and hoping to migrate to bbpress as soon as the converter becomes available..

    here is another improvement for BBPress forums –

    ‘Report user/post’ Button that would automatically hide spam post, and made it visible only to admin/moderators for deltetion or approval etc.

    @kriskl

    hi,it is a ‘work around’ sure,

    but ideally, it would be great to have it built in, and if the reply ‘opened’ reply window below the post, and the answer went straight under this post – like threaded comments do in wordpress
