I finally found a widget manager that works! It is called widget context. It allows you to use wildcards such as forums/*
It works so well I no longer need to use the shortcode.
Sorry- I didn’t see your reply earlier
Yes the BBpress widgets work nicely.
The issue is that I want to decide which widget shows on which page.
I have tried numerous widgets and when the forum pages show, they are all messed up. They fill in with the forums only all scrunched together.
I’ve als tried putting the shortcode in a page and that has helped when assigning widgets except for when on the “forums” part of the breadcrumb after entering a board. It goes crazy.
I found one custom widget plugin that makes a widget “drag and drop” page in the editor for each page and post editor area but the person that will be using this will have a difficult time using it. When using that plugin if I make all the forum widgets to be the default setup and just add/subtract widgets per page – it won’t show the craziness.
I don’t think I can describe this any better. It just looks like craziness and it isn’t in the forum widgets… The forum contents fill up any available widget on the sidebar even if the widget isn’t “assigned” to the forum and it is only when following the breadcrumbs AFTER being in a board.
Just in case anyone else is having this issue, I found that widget wrangler doesn’t morph. Unfortunately it takes several steps to add widgets and I’m not sure it is the ideal solution for him.. I will keep looking.
Yep Good point- I did do the import with no plugins installed and that’s why I reported it was a success…then I looked at it later and the topics were gone. After I posted here I realized I went a little crazy adding plugins so I disabled them all and activated them until the problem showed up again. Thanks again for offering a way to grab the posts from vbulletin and thanks for the bbpress wordpress plugin.
Hi Again, I figured it out. It was a plugin called bbPress Moderation. Apparently the plug in considers all the imported topics to be worthy of moderation but there is no way to approve them. lol Interesting.
I spoke too soon… the backend looks like everything is connected coorrectly- forums-posts- users. The front end shows something similar to this on all forum pages
