In reply to: Remove Myself from the Forum
I found the culprit. I don’t know how I missed it before, but by default a registered user is added as a participant. This toggle was forcing me on the site, even when I removed myself.
I can hack the plugin and set that as false by default. I’ll just need to remember to fix that every time the plugin updates, and I’ll need to let users know that they need to add a forum role to their users (which shouldn’t be a big deal).
Looks like I can do that on bbpress/includes/admin/settings/line 532 changing the true to false.
<input name="_bbp_allow_global_access" id="_bbp_allow_global_access" type="checkbox" value="1" <?php checked( bbp_allow_global_access( true ) ); bbp_maybe_admin_setting_disabled( '_bbp_allow_global_access' ); ?> />
I can understand why it’s set this way. It does make the plugin work “out of the box” in a way that users would otherwise need to sort through what is already a very intricate settings panel.
Is there a place where I could read how these two worlds are inevitably going to collide? I currently have Group Forums enabled in a BP 1.5.3 with 200+ groups. One of those groups is a Support group, to help with navigation of the community, use, BP, WP (it’s a multisite), etc. which gets lost amidst the other active groups.
I’m tempted to turn on the Sitewide Forum option (separate from groups), but feel like perhaps the two options are really a stop-gap measure until the new bbpress replaces bbpress 1.x for groups. Currently it looks like the sitewide forum (Support) on testbp.org and the Forum Directory (global directory of all of the discussion within all of the public groups) aren’t aware of one another.
I’m patient, should I hold off on enabling Sitewide Forums until bbpress 2.x becomes THE forum functionality at work in BP.
How seamlessly will this migration be, and will it be easier if I just stick with group forums for now.
