In reply to: rss result is empty
Just in case this thread (and bbPress development) is still alive:
The question was: How to handle feeds with no items. Currently bbPress responds with an empty page when a feed wouldn’t contain any items.
The expected behaviour would be to respond sending a valid feed with no item entries.
The file /rss.php (see http://svn.automattic.com/bbpress/trunk/rss.php) calls die() in all cases when no posts are found.
Comment out all “die()” calls and you’re fine!In reply to: Dropping “MultiViews” support?
On Multiviews: Never heard of it until I first installed bbPress. If mof_rewrite would work out of the box (i.e.: if bbPress would create the file or dump the necessary content) I wouldn’t need MultiViews.
Here is one aspect I’d like to through in: URL Customization/Localization.
When localizing URLs, it’s very easy to do this via editing of mod_rewrite rules. All my bbPress installations are in german language, thus I want german URLs.
When changing the wording in URLs, e.g. from “forum” to “board” or “topic” to “idea” etc., same thing – just edit the rewrite rules.
How easy would it be to customize URLs with MultiViews in effect? Without having looked into the implementation, I would guess that it requires code changes.
If URL customization is easier in mod_rewrite, please drop MultiViews. Otherwise, please document how URL customization can be done using MultiViews.
