  • 1. remove /register.php or redirect it to somewhere, or replace it with your page (tell visitors your forum temporarily doesn’t accept new registrations) then you can skip step 2.

    2. remove register link from your login-form.php in you template folder.

    3. Use this. You may need these

    $roles['member']['capabilities'] = array('read' => true);
    $roles['moderator']['capabilities'] = array('read' => true);
    $roles['administrator']['capabilities'] = array('read' => true);

    I think there is no need to delete yours. Your porting plugin should have more features than mine. I am too lazy, therefore my Gravatar plugin only has the functionalities that I need. However I will add a feature if someone asks and I agree that is a general need.

    echo make_clickable($content);

    If you pull posts from database, then trying to make it possible to use template functions may be a better solution.

    I only tested one case, the dollar sign ‘$’ on my testing forum with commenting out the entire function bb_user_sanitize except last line. I can register with ‘$’ in username, post with that account and the username is showed correctly.

    I made my modifications to the original theme Kakumei. If you have any questions about my modifications, you are welcome to ask me.

    add a filter for bb_user_sanitize to allow those characters you need (choose carefully!). Check line 114 in formatting-functions.php for the parameters which you can use in your filter.

    I personally don’t agree to allow users having fancy or funny usernames. You may encounter more problems that you have never thought.

    Plugin Name: NoNewsPostsForMembers
    Plugin URI:
    Description: No New posts for members

    function NoNewsPostsForMembers($roles) {
    $roles['member']['capabilities']['write_posts'] = false;
    return $roles;

    add_filter('get_roles', 'NoNewsPostsForMembers');

    Put it in my-plugins with any filename.php you like. Activate it. Then this should work.

    I made some changes to have paginated search results on relevant post. However, I am not sure is this what you need. You need to modify two files: search.php in root of bbPress and search.php of your template files.

    Replace if block start at line 9 in search.php of root of bbPress with:

    if ( $q = stripslashes( $q ) ) {
    add_filter( 'bb_recent_search_fields', create_function( '$f', 'return $f . ", MAX(post_time) AS post_time";' ) );
    add_filter( 'bb_recent_search_group_by', create_function( '', 'return "t.topic_id";' ) );
    $bb_query_form->BB_Query_Form( 'post', array(), array( 'per_page' => 5, 'post_status' => 0, 'topic_status' => 0, 'post_text' => $q, 'forum_id', 'tag', 'topic_author', 'post_author' ), 'bb_recent_search' );
    $recent = $bb_query_form->results;

    $bb_query_form->BB_Query_Form( 'topic', array( 'search' => $q ), array( 'post_status' => 0, 'topic_status' => 0, 'search', 'forum_id', 'tag', 'topic_author', 'post_author', 'count' => 'found_rows' ), 'bb_relevant_search' );
    $relevant = $bb_query_form->results;
    global $relevant_round_rows;
    $relevant_found_rows = $bb_query_form->found_rows;
    $q = $bb_query_form->get( 'search' );

    I added a query parameter 'count'=>'found_rows' to second $bb_query_form for retrieving total post count. And I added global $relevant_found_rows to pass to template search.php (you can use bb_load_template to do same thing).

    Insert the following code just before second <?php endif; ?> from bottom in template search.php

    <div class="nav">
    $uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
    if (false !== $pos = strpos($uri, '?')) {
    $uri = substr($uri, 0, $pos) . '?q=' . urlencode($q) . '%_%';

    if (!isset($page))
    $page = 1;

    global $relevant_found_rows;
    echo paginate_links(array('base' => $uri, 'format' => '&page=%#%', 'total'=>ceil($relevant_found_rows/$bb->page_topics), 'current'=>$page));

    Should look like:

    <?php if ( $relevant ) : ?>
    <h2><?php _e('Relevant posts')?></h2>
    <ol class="results">
    <?php foreach ( $relevant as $bb_post ) : ?>
    <li><h4><a href="<?php post_link(); ?>"><?php topic_title($bb_post->topic_id); ?></a></h4>
    <?php echo bb_show_context($q, $bb_post->post_text); ?>

    <small><?php _e('Posted') ?> <?php bb_post_time( __('F j, Y, h:i A') ); ?></small>

    <?php endforeach; ?>
    [insert the code above here]
    <?php endif; ?>

    You can find paginate_links in bb-includes/wp-functions.php.

    What does the link to your profile look like?

    Have you tried to refresh the page which has the link to your profile?

    I see. Then that would be

    require_once '../wp-blog-header.php';


    Here is a quick php for it(Use this method at your own risk), you need pretty permalink to use it.

    Save the following code in bbPress root folder as page.php

    if (preg_match('/.*/page/(.*)/', $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], $matches)) {
    $file = bb_slug_sanitize($matches[1]) . '.php';
    if (file_exists(bb_get_active_theme_folder() . "/static/$file")) {
    bb_load_template("static/" . $file);

    Put your static pages in a new static folder under your template folder, they should looks like

    <?php bb_get_header(); ?>
    The static content here.
    <?php bb_get_footer(); ?>

    Then you can access a static file. For example, access test.php(bb-templates/yourtemplate/static/test.php) at

    Remember: Use this method at your own risk


    You used require_once in a wrong way. If you installed WordPress in /path/to/wordpress and bbPress in /path/to/bbpress, then you should use

    require_once '../wordpress/wp-blog-header.php'.

    You normally use require/include for local .php.

    PS. I don’t use WordPress and bbPress together.

    Thanks for liking it. I already requested, I know it need sometime to get approval.

    In reply to: Plugin: Gravatar


    I changed my mind. bbPress doesn’t check the validity of new email address and confirm the user really own that new email address.

    In reply to: Plugin: Gravatar

    Aha… I just realized that I didn’t know users can change their registered email. (I use a Key Master to edit normal user’s profile…)

    I should remove this Gravatar Email field to make code simpler and add another field Use Gravatar?. Maybe add some other features as well.

    I am also waiting Gravatar to allow larger avatar. Once it allow, I will put a new version out.

    In reply to: Internal Server Error

    That’s weird…

    Did you modify the code by your hands?

    [17-Oct-2007 20:53:46] PHP Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: Access denied for user ‘unrprus1’@’localhost’ (using password: NO) in /home/unrprus1/public_html/wp02/forums/bb-includes/db-mysqli.php on line 80

    According your log, that’s mysql_get_server_info not mysqli_get_server_info.

    The patch changed the function from mysql_get_server_info to mysqli_get_server_info (there is an additional letter i). Could you read the db-mysqli.php again?

    I have this error before on my hosting server, once I modified that code. It totally fixed I only modified line 80.

    In reply to: Internal Server Error

    Have you tried this this

    to modify line 80 in db-mysqli.php?

    In reply to: Internal Server Error

    Hi JRussell,

    Although, I don’t use WordPress and bbPress in the same time. But I think if you can provide web server logs like error.log from your hosting service provider. We will have more clues.

    I made another approach to fit this need and used it on my forum.

    function ChangeRoleDisplayName() {
    global $bb_roles;
    $bb_roles->role_names['keymaster'] = "Toilet Cleaner";

    add_action('bb_got_roles', 'ChangeRoleDisplayName', 10, 0);

    The complete code is in role-display-name.php.
