    What’s the problem? Are you hired here to provide support?

    – You can create a GitHub repository and all issues will be nicely organized. You can have priority and severity labels. You will be efficient by focusing on what’s actually important.
    – Maybe implement voting and the community will decide what is important to fix and what isn’t. For example what I report is rather “high priority” to fix as this is a front page visual bug.
    – Bugs could be quickly identified and eliminated.
    – “Random support requests” are chaos and not important to answer (unless they get enough votes from community).

    Problem solved?

    No, I’m not using any caching plugins.

    I think these “Recount” actions in Tools > Forums are breaking things. Are they even necessary? If some could be eliminated and done automatically that would be great.

    Wow, thank you for your quick reply, I didn’t expect that there will be one 🙂

    I’m using v2.6 RC-6 and this doesn’t update the freshness. v2.6 has the same bug sadly.

    And when I go to Tools > Forums and run all “Recalculate…” tasks then ['bbp-forum-index'] shortcode loses sub-forums display on my front page of website. To fix this I have to go to “Forums” and open every parent forum and click “Publish” again.

    Any news on v2.6 release?

    It would be nice if this project could revive a little, please. At least if you could post more frequent updates (even if only a blog post with nothing inside… at least 1 update every 1-3 months would be giving us hope that development is still being continued).

    v2.5 works fine for me but it has some bugs (freshness of topics on forum index is wrong) that I’m looking forward that v2.6 could fix.

    Other than that v2.5 is OK so far.

    I think that this is an answer: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/how-to-read-bb_topicmeta/

    Awesome 🙂 Love BBPress.

    How about forum-only WordPress theme? This sounds like easily doable.

    Or a theme that theme developers can integrate with their own theme if they copy things like register_sidebar() etc. to their functions.php? No need for child themes and things like that in this case.

    I can think of many acceptable and convenient solutions 🙂

    ==========================
    It is very easy to modify BBPress 1 if you have theme in /bb-templates/ or /my-templates/ folder. You have to spend hours on going through BBPress files (because there is no documentation like in case of WordPress) but that’s fine with me.

    I would like to move to BBPress2 because of a bit better documentation, more functions that I’m often missing, custom fields and if it’s made as custom post type then it’s actually easy to integrate with any theme in any way – very cool.

    BBPress beats any solutions like PHPBB thanks to your simple, clever and therefore highly customizable project structure. Too bad that it’s evolving slowly because it’s a great thing 🙂
