    I tried the code on a test site and it appeared to work.
    I updated the Track ticket.

    Hi@dimitri333

    Take a look at:

    Regarding the (unofficial) code:

    bbp Mentions Suggest

    However, I think that you would have to add BuddyPress to your site to get this working. So it might not help you. I don’t think there’s anything you can do with bbPress alone.

    Update: I got some more info on this from the folks at BuddyDev:

    [x] icon to delete subscriptions

    If anyone can confirm this, and even point me to something in Trac that would be great.

    @carasse64 you should definitely post in the BP forum as Robin said, and also I have sometimes had good luck with the free forum at: https://buddydev.com/

    Yeah, that must be the case.

    I tried it on a test site just now. I didn’t do any extensive testing, but does appear to work!
    Pretty cool.

    @carasse64, I use bbPress with BuddyPress too and I have never seen @name “completion” on my site. I don’t think it’s actually a feature of BuddyPress (or the bbPress/Buddypress combination), although I’ve seen it on some other types of forums. So I would not expect to see that list. Of course I could be wrong.

    @deepblue5, is this a BuddyPress profile?

    Hi @lcmweb,

    I’m running memberpress / buddypress / bbpress. My member profiles are handled by buddypress. Is that your situation?

    It sounds like (maybe) your memberpress rules are not giving members access to the profiles. I’m no expert on this, but if you can provide some more details, I’ll be happy to share any ideas I can come up with.

    @viridw,

    I may misunderstand what you’re asking. But assuming you’re enabling the WP visual editor by doing something like this:

    function bbp_enable_visual_editor( $args = array() ) {
        $args['tinymce'] = true;
        return $args;
    }
    add_filter('bbp_after_get_the_content_parse_args', 'bbp_enable_visual_editor');

    I used to do that, but new WP releases seemed to break it in various ways. And there were other problems primarily with mobile devices. I decided it wasn’t worth the trouble and got rid of it.

    Just sharing my experience. Your milage may vary 🙂

    @robin-w, I think bbPress does just what you’re saying. But (if I understand things correctly) BuddyPress will change the WP “display name” (and/or “nickname” ???) when you update your name in the BP profile — If “synching” is on. I use BP, but I actually have synching OFF, so I’m not all that familiar with the details.

    BTW, the same goes for email. You can change that in the BP profile too, and (if allowed) it updates it in WordPress.

    > I am using BuddyPress and tried your suggestion but it didn’t change anything


    @keystonehdc
    ,

    Did you do a buddypress profile name update after checking profile syncing?
    Checking that won’t affect changes that have already been done.

    If you don’t need to change it through the buddypress profile, the there’s that plugin Robin suggested, or you could change in the WordPress user fields.

    If buddypress is essential to what you’re doing, there is also a buddypress forum:

    https://buddypress.org/support/

    And also these guys, who seem so provide more answers than the official forum (they have a “paid” category but they answer question even if you don’t pay):

    Is this a BuddyPress profile that you’re talking about? If so, do you have the Buddypress option “Enable BuddyPress to WordPress profile syncing” checked?

    If you’re using buddypress, checking that will sync the WP profile changes with buddypress. Be aware that this may have other consequences than just changing the display name, and I’m not sure what all of them are 🙂

    @ritishsharma,

    If you’ve got a Captcha plug in, I don’t think wordfence will help any further with spam sign-ups (although it would certainly help with other types of hacking attempts, if you don’t already have any kind of firewall).

    Wordfence Security – Firewall & Malware Scan

    They also have some pretty cool security tutorials, if you poke around on the wordpress.com site.

    I’m not certain, but I think that something like Wordfence might help with this. I’m running it on three different sites. None of them use bbPress registration, but two of them have MemberPress registrations, which are vulnerable to the same problem. Wordfence doesn’t exactly address this problem directly, but they do apparently keep a huge list of compromised and other suspicious sites, which get blocked.

    Again, I don’t have any direct experience with bbPress registrations, but this has really helped me with various kinds of spam logins, comments, and other problems.

    Just a possibility.

    @robin-w,

    … and anyone who happens to look at this and is running MemberPress.

    Yes, there is more to do with MP. MP Members may or may not have actual “Subscriptions.” They can also just have memberships without what MP calls subscriptions. These membership can go “inactive.” But, unfortunately, that can happen *temporarily* if their credit card needs to be updated.

    None-the-less, your code examples are quite valuable!

    In the unlikely event that anyone else here is running MP and is interested in this, please chime in here (or otherwise contact me). I would love to compare notes on this and related things.

    > I don’t see how to unsubscribe them from notifications via the admin console

    I think the page I’m going to, in order to unsubscribe them, is created by BuddyPress.
    I bet Robin will come up with something good!

    For what it’s worth, I’m using MemberPress and I have to unsubscribe people from bbPress (and BuddyPress) notifications by hand when they leave. I would love to come up with a better scheme!

    @deborahdavidson, This is probably not a bbPress issue. We have the same problem, particularly with iPhones. It tends to show up on forums posts and things like memberpress signups. I know of one particular iPhone issue that *sometimes* causes this, if you want more info on that.

    @robin-w,

    > I’m trying to find time to think about this

    I wouldn’t put any more effort into it if no one else is seeing it. As I say, I’m not updating WP anyway.

    > Enable jQuery Migrate Helper

    I could be wrong, but I think the text editing bug is a separate thing and unique to 5.6.1.

    > bbpress only has a text editor as standard in front end

    This is how I’m enabling what I was calling the “visual” editor:

    function bbp_enable_visual_editor( $args = array() ) {
    $args[‘tinymce’] = true;
    return $args;
    }
    add_filter(‘bbp_after_get_the_content_parse_args’, ‘bbp_enable_visual_editor’);

    It’s quite possible that I’m doing something I don’t realize. As I say, I think by now there would be numerous reports if this was a general problem.

    Hi @robin-w,

    Just bbPress. It’s my MemberPress, bbPress, BuddyPress “test site.” We generally don’t upgrade anything until testing it here first. I’m not upgrading WordPress on our real sites because of the editing bug. I do everything in text mode!

    If seems like (with WP 5.6.1) when you start editing a post in text mode, there’s no echo. If you switch to visual, the text is there. Some other weird thing seem to happen, but those are hard to pin down.

    AFAICT I don’t have any other plugins that should be involved.

    NOTE: FOR ME THIS ONLY HAPPENS ON MOBILE DEVICES, but I don’t really know if it’s mobile vs desktop or one browser vs another. I’ve read that the basic WP bug is browser dependent.

    From my perspective, it’s just one of the reasons that I’m not updating WP, so it’s not big deal in itself, but I am curious that (if I’m really seeing what I think I am) that it’s not been reported more!

    If they are using WP 5.6.1 and posting in text mode, I wonder if it could be the same thing I’m seeing here:

    WordPress 5.6.1 bug affects forum text editing mode?
