    far from an LDAP expert, but I thought that would be for connecting to an LDAP service primarily in form of directory services for address book type info… guess I can look into…

    ooopsss… actually, you have to to the forums page to see all the forum stuff… http://test.158th.com/forums

    though you did get a peek at my wordpress plugin to display latest forum stuff in wordpress…

    you can see this in work now at http://test.158th.com

    still some styling work to do and such… also going to port the forums and data in from phpBB (actually nukeBB)

    okay Sam, some serious wordpress integration issues here… below are the clashes with wordpress and the offending files…

    get_category()

    get_categories()

    root: forum.php, topic.php, index.php

    admin: content-categories.php, content-forums.php, bb-category.php

    bb-includes: functions.php, template-functions.php, cache.php

    is_category()

    bb-includes: functions.php, template-functions.php

    get_category_link()

    bb-includes: functions.php, template-functions.php

    category_description()

    template: category.php, front-page.php

    bb-includes: template-functions.php

    get_category_rss_link()

    bb-includes: template-functions.php

    whew… after adding bb_ to the front of all those items in bbpress, I finally got it to run the upgrade script, which worked…

    now to see if it works as something looks a bit odd in the display of the category…

    thats my plan Sam, but I am pretty sure I have verified that it is indeed a function name clash for both get_category and get_categories at a minimum… havent checked the rest though when I start modding the patch, I am sure I will find them 😉

    having problems getting this to worked… because of mods, applying the patch by hand… so its probably me but really stumped…

    after doing the changes, had an error, so double checked everything… still no dice… so I decided to bite the bullet and do it the patch way… as luck would have it my host doesnt seem to allow patch to work – diff issue I will take up with him…

    anyways, started from a clean 0.8 install and applied the patch by hand again… end up getting the same error again… double checked and everything looks good…

    Here’s the error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_categories() (previously declared in /xxxxxx/wp-includes/category.php:14) in /xxxxxx/forums/bb-includes/functions.php on line 3

    oh man… AAARGGH… as I sit here typing this in, it just hit me what is wrong and why I wasted time into the wee hours trying to solve it…

    has anyone tried this category patch in a bbpress integrated with wordpress?? it seems the category functions are clashing between the two…

    geez… I dont know how many times I read that last night and never noticed that… another reason why you do work real late at night 😉 helps if you can read too 😛

    any thoughts on this working with a bbpress/wordpress integrated situation?

    perhaps if i didnt already have a heavily modded theme from previous versions… seems I always get lots of experience modding core files 😉

    luckily I can work around code fine enough… just hope I dont have to do it too often before it gets formally included…


    MrPapasWorld

    @mrpapasworld

    A couple more questions on this… it appears the patch only mods the default template so assuming I have to make those changes manually… probably could edit the patch file by hand, but I have already modded some of those files in my theme… no package available of the modded files?

    Are there any more planned releases between 0.8 and 1.0? which I believe I read somewhere is the planned formal release with this incorporated… Roadmap shows 1.0 next but it may not be current…

    thanks…

    Does this category patch work with the private forums plugin?

    Hey Trent, please try to keep in mind some phpBB implementations are actually in php-nuke, which is slightly diff… I would love to convert my last few nuke sites over to something else, but the hold up has always been the forums… a conversion to bbpress might solve that…

    thanks…

    Trent, agreed… When I started, it mostly mind block… once you open up, it gets pretty easy…

    a test integration: http://test.klasen.us

    ignore all the silly posts and comments… testing a new wp theme and a whole bunch of other stuff for things I am working on…

    @mrpapasworld

    yes, that is exactly what I wanted… strange behavior though as I “guessed” thats what the address would be… well, sort of… I left off the trailing slash and get a page error… still not used to bbpress pretty urls wanting that trailing slash that is not normally needed…

    thanks!

    I have read the other thread and will watch this, but not sure it will do what I want… I understand this to be a view type thing…

    I am looking for something else that would work for the forum and discussion views (maybe more too)… I have added icons next to the topics/forums… I would like to use diff icons to indicate whether there is a something new, unread for the user there… this is a common feature on other forum apps… kind of like the alternating row colors (even, odd, alt, etc) but read and unread…

    might even be nice to extend for other possibilities too like sticky, locked, solved, etc…

    For now, I am using the css visited technique mentioned by ardentfrost…

    Thanks…

    with css?? must be missing something… verteran with wp… but noob with bbpress…

    havent yet figured out how to tell if the link is visited or not visited in bbpress… might be this third glass of wine though…

    most definitely understand the comment about work…

    thanks…
