Click “Screen options” on the top right of the page and change 20 to 50 🙂
Check out the docs in the codex, this I think should help you get started:In reply to: Our Ideal Forum Look We Want
bbPress shares WordPress’ users settings, you an see an example of it for your own bbPress.org and WordPress.org profiles here:
When logging into bbPress it is just logging into WordPress with the same username and password so you should be good to go there also 🙂In reply to: Getting Last Topic or Post Date
Hi if you’re still around would like to know how you changed Freshness to Last Post?
bbPress 2.6 will no longer use “Freshness”, the default is now “Last Post”In reply to: How can I change front-end form for anonymous
You can do this by creating a child theme and editing the
form-anonymoustemplate, you can find details on doing this here https://codex.bbpress.org/functions-files-and-child-themes-explained/In reply to: Security issues reported on BBpress plugin
No, you should not be using
phpBB Converter file 5795, you should be using the version that is included with 2.6-alpha.
That will fix the problem in your screenshot.
It does give stats as it imports, you should be something similar to:
If you also view the source of the page, right click and “inspect” will also bring this up, you should see some debug code showing the SQL queries being performed during the import:
The forums, if imported will be in the
wp_poststable of your WordPress database, if you filter the posts and search the
replyyou should see any imported posts.
Cool, hopefully that will fix any issues, and we switched wordpress.org/support to bbPress 2.6-alpha a couple of weeks ago 🙂
Are you using bbPress 2.5.10 or 2.6 alpha from https://bbpress.org/download?
If you’re not using 2.6 alpha that “could” be the issue, it’s updated for the latest phpBB 3.1.x branches, the 2.5.x only supports phpBB 3.0.x branches
(Plus 2.6 alpha has lots of extra improvements)
On the importer screen there is an option to select what forum you are importing from, I presume you selected
phpBBfrom that dropdown?
This chugs along, with no obvious errors, (but no real report of what it did) – although the “No forums to convert” error no longer appears.
I think this is a good sign 🙂
Did you run the “Repair Tools” after the import finished? (you should have been prompted to do that)
It looks like you have not imported the phpBB database into the same MySQL instance WordPress is using.
You cannot use a “remote” database to import from.In reply to: Question on “Add ‘edit profile’ to a wordpress menu”
See the menus used here on both bbPress.org/forums and BuddyPress.org/support:
These are both menus, both use said “parent” menu items to arrange the items, both these menus are open source and pretty good examples and slightly different of how you can add bbPress and BuddyPress functionality to menus
Take a look around and look out for “parent” and see what you find…
If you’re using any phpBB mods this might cause issues.
You also need to make sure you use bbPress 2.6 alpha, which includes all the changes required , you cannot simply copy the changed
phpBB.phpfile to a different bbPress version.
To use the most up to date phpBB importer use bbPress 2.6-alpha as I pointed out, if you have to use the old phpBB version use bbPress 2.5.10.
But as I’ve said, there are huge improvements to the phpBB importer in 2.6-alpha so updating phpBB to the latest version is my recommendation.
You shouldn’t need to edit any of bbPress functions.
You can achieve what you are after by adding your own custom templates:
This is a guide to getting started with these: https://codex.bbpress.org/themes/amending-bbpress-templates/
This is a helpful reference for bbPress’ templates: https://codex.bbpress.org/themes/theme-compatibility/template-hierarchy-in-detail/
What I think you’d be looking to do is make changes to your child themes
loop-single-reply.phptemplate so that only the links to replies are there by removing
bbp_reply_content().In reply to: Li mark breaks the whole style
It is a known issue, see https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2357In reply to: Forum format and style same as bbpress.org
The bbpress.org and buddypress.org sites are 100% open source 🙂
You can find all the links and info needed here: https://bbpress.org/blog/2014/03/open-sourcing-bbpress-org/ and https://buddypress.org/2014/03/open-sourcing-buddypress-org/In reply to: Remove BBpress from buddpressIn reply to: bbpress and RTL languages
Hi @roozbehrah, we try to fully support RTL languages.
The bbPress translations are an indicator of that, Hebrew and Arabic are also RTL languages and as far as I am aware there is no issues with URLs with these RTL languages.
There is also this plugin that uses numeric permalinks, i.e. “topic/forum ID”:
If you could add some further explanation and examples of how bbPress could support RTL locales and URLs better I’d be happy to add these improvements to bbPress 🙂
I’m pretty sure you’d be able to get what you’re after 🙂
Once bbPress is activated, enable “threaded replies” in the settings.
bbp_show_lead_topic(), grab the snippet from https://codex.bbpress.org/bbp_show_lead_topic/ and create a custom plugin using that code snippet.
Then I’d suggest hoping over to the docs and do some reading:
