    John James Jacoby: For people running into issues on Windows local installs, svn up and test the most recent trunk. The solution isn’t very pretty but appears to work on all server configs.

    I love this (ugly) solution, thanks for taking the time to do what you did, and if what Ryan Boren did in a particular change in WordPress helped too then grand! :) With this, you can tell Automattic made a good call adding you to the team (congratulations again!)

    Rich Pedley: Works OK for me, I never thought of just changing that portion (doh).

    You always think about it after you see the change made, I’m sure I’d been playing about with that at one stage but had nothing like the final ”solution” shows … least we’ve got JJJ to help us! ;)

    DeysonOrtiz: I dropped the ‘plugin’ folder into the wp-content/plugins folder and then changed the folder named ‘plugin’ to bbpress.

    By rights it should show up fine in either folder. So inside the /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/ directory do you see a bbpress.php file? Can you just double check all the files needed to run the bbPress Plugin have been uploaded! :)

    zaerl: bbPress isn’t a WordPress plugin. It’s a standalone software.

    Not yet anyway like driz states! Development is on-going right now, but the basic functions all work, and things are slowly starting to take shape! :)

    Oh don’t worry about it, I’ll see if we can get the thread locked! ;)

    You’ve indentified a number of possible plugins that can help/prevent any SPAM on your forum Ramiuz. Yes I’d recommend you used Akismet because it’s designed to work on this kind of stuff, plus it’s owned by Automattic who make sure it integrates well with the likes of bbPress (and WordPress!) — If there is a problem with it, do the developers know about it?

    My $0.02 anyway! ;)

    Yeah you’re best place to get support would be BuddyPress, while it’ll integrate with bbPress, I believe they do some cool stuff with code to make it possible, you’ll also get a much quicker response! :)

    I don’t believe that is possible in bbPress without the use of a plugin, and on doing a quick search it does bring up bbPages but it is possible it’ll not work, going by a few comments anyway? — I know you said no plugins, but that’s the only way I know how to do it using latest version released!

    JohnJamesJacoby: Lots of updates and rearranging today. If you’re running on an SVN check-out you’ll want to SVN up.

    I’d spotted most of the changes going in, things are looking good, and my local copy works great and as expected (I’ll post a slight issue on Trac to do with the Child Theme not being in the /themes/ directory though!)

    Rich Pedley: […] I appear to have lost access to the admin menu.

    There is #1357 on Trac opened up a few hours ago now which would appear to report the same issue, although I’m a little puzzled, cause I don’t recall ever seeing anything other than the Forums, Topics, and Replies CPT items in the menu? — Have I missed something that needs looked into?

    I wanted to throw this link out to you all, it’s the Justin Tadlock’s Forum Plugin For WP thread where Justin chimed in on a few things about what he’s done, and where he’d like to see bbPress (Plugin) go and whatnot! :)

    The only other thing I want to say right now is that I read on IRC that JJJ will have an official demo site up and running on bbPress.org very soon, where I’m hpoing we can join/login to and try and break stuff, so it’ll obviously run the latest development copy?

    The adove (^^) is just so JJJ doesn’t forget about it! ;) LOL

    dudd: but when i add new page with the template “bbpress- New topic” it do not work and show nothing !

    Rich Pedley: Yeah I haven’t figured out why that is available either, hopefully JJJ will enlighten us.

    While I was playing with bbPress on my local install the other day, I half looked into the problem, and going from memory we’re missing a form-bbp_post.php file I think? That, or get_template_part( 'form', 'bbp_post' ); in page-bbp_form.php should read something different, but I’m going by the first thing I said! ;)

    Update: Opened #1352 on Trac!

    wildkyo: Is there any date on which you think the plugin will be fully functional? I tried it today and it seems that it still needs much more development.

    Still in the early stages yes, I agree, but the barebones of the plugin is actually there (or pretty much there) in my opinion. I have it running locally, and it works a treat, you can post a new topic from the frontend … for some that’d be all they wanted and needed!

    I got the impression (somewhere) that JJJ wanted the final release out by the end of the year if I’m not wrong, but please don’t go and quote me on that, I’m very likely wrong! :(

    When Justin announced DevPress.com on his personal blog, the question was raised about the Forum Plugin he’d been working on, to which he replied:

    We’re thinking of just contributing all the work back to the bbPress community for their plugin. I’ll post an update as soon as we know the direction we’re going in.

    Something like a week later he posted:

    The entire code base that we use to run our forums has already been handed over to the bbPress project. I sent JJJ a link to download it a few weeks ago.

    As for if JJJ has used any of the code Justin had, I don’t know, chances are both were/would have been pretty similar (but I can’t confirm that!) — Only JJJ and/or Justin could tell us that! :P

    Because of what Justin achieved, I’d love to get him on the ”bbPress (Plugin) Team” and help JJJ get this machine on the road. I myself have it running on a local install, the barebones is GREAT and I can tell you that! :) Shame my coding knowledge isn’t as good!

    Anyway, there’s some info! HAHA

    mr_pelle: How can we contribute if no one submits patches […]

    You just answered your own question! :)

    And as for #538 believe it or not JJJ has submitted a patch, some testing probably wouldn’t go wrong with that, then maybe someone with commit access can add it to trunk!

    @markmcwilliams

    Thanks for the update JJJ, sounds like a few lines of code still need to be written, you are the man for the job though! ;) If you need anything tested, let me know and I’ll do my best to *try* and break anything!

    _ck_: Well, multiple BLOGS, I am not sure if they can get multiple forums going on the first version, we’ll see. But I am sure it’s a goal of Matt’s so they can use it on WordPress.com

    I’m not sure how they couldn’t get it going, but I sure do think it’ll be on the list!

    Even if it doesn’t make the first version, it’s going to be put in there not long after. At the end of the day, that’ll be a major ”selling” point when it comes to people using bbPress (IMHO!)

    _ck_: As far as I could guess, you’d have to install multiple copies of WP.

    Not with WordPres 3.0 anyway, 1 install, multiple sites! :)

    Is there any timetable when the bbPress plugin project would be ready?

    It’ll be a while yet I’m sure? If we go anything by the 1.2 Milestone on the bbPress Trac, it says another 5 months away, and remember that at the moment we’ve only got Pete Mall and JJJ working on it!

    @Matt Mullenweg: Glad to see you around here again! :)

    While Matt would appear to be burned out on bbPress, it would appear now that he’s working on a few things here and there for v1.1 which would be good. Yup, it sure is nice, and if you’re reading, let us know who’s got the new design going! :)

    Only time will tell…!

    @markmcwilliams

    Yeah, cool, somethings happening! :D

    Could it be Matt himself, I read we could be looking at bbPress 1.1 RC very soon!

    @markmcwilliams

    I’m sure it could be changed to Member Info, Moderator Info and so on?… While I’d have attempted to create a ticket in trac for the change, I wouldn’t know where to start looking, nor would I know if it’d ever get accepted! But adding ‘Info’ onto the end really would help! :)
