Correct @lp9086, we have 6 forums here on bbPress and no categories, or parent/child forums, just plain ‘ol forums 🙂
You need to contact your web host, or search the MyBB site for how to retrieve the appropriate username and password for your MyBB database
You will need to use the MyBB site for details on upgrading, this looks like it could be what you need https://docs.mybb.com/1.8/install/upgrade/
I view this from the opposite direction @ljmac, bbPress is one of the leading, if not forerunner plugin on pushing the boundaries of WordPress’ user roles, the changes WordPress made benefit bbPress greatly. It also wasn’t an easy decision to make, we’d wanted a couple of changes in WordPress for a few years now, now we got a change that we wanted, we just had to make the decision as to if we should break back compatibility, and we concluded the pros outweighed the cons.
To answer your question though, yes bbPress 2.5.11 should work on WordPress 3.7
p.s. WordPress development has nothing to do with Automattic, Automatic host WordPress sites on WordPress.com. WordPress and WordPress.org is an open source project with many contributors world wide.
Since switching to HTTPS you need to update your siteurl and homeurl to use HTTPS at
For multisite @ragir it depends how you have your site setup, this article covers your options on what you can, and can not do to switch to https for multisite 🙂In reply to: bbpress 2.6-beta-2 breaks login
Hmmm…. It works here locally for me, I suspect you have a plugin or theme conflict…
Instead of renaming or moving the bbpress folder can you try disabling all your other plugins and see if you can login please?
IF you can then login start enabling each plugin one at a time, log out and then login again, this should then give you the plugin name that is causing the conflict. We can then add that plugin to our own install and try and replicate the issue, once we can replicate it we can work on finding the cause to then be able to fix the issue…In reply to: [MULTI] Forum Labels and Blocked Accounts
You would need to create some custom code for this, maybe a plugin or two
One of your wishes, changing Freshness to Last Post is included in bbPress 2.6 🙂
It’s also worth searching the forums, many of the issues that pop up surrounding the importing of forums are quite similar.
Try looking at some of these to help:
Also our docs:
Please provide some more information on what version software you are using please:
What versions of MyBB, bbPress, BuddyPress, WordPress are you using?In reply to: bbpress is not compatible with any SEO plugin
Unfortunately I’m not on Facebook so I cannot see that conversation you had 🙁
Perhaps you could link to this topic in that conversation and have the WPseo plugin author join this conversation?
As to Yoast, I believe Yoast is compatible with bbPress, @joostdevalk wrote here last year “I’ll bump BBPress on to the list again, we’ve long had issues with that, we should just fix it”, I’ve no idea if anything was updated for bbPress or not, was it @joostdevalk ?
I myself don’t use any SEO plugins let alone any that you mention, we’re happy to work with any plugin author to help add support their plugin if we can.
I’m sure there are other bbPress users who do use various SEO plugins, maybe someone else here has some tips on using Yoast WordPress SEO, WPseo, or All in One SEO?
p.s. This topic is going to attract many a spammer, so if your reply doesn’t show up straight away that will be due to Akismet being proactive, if your reply doesn’t turn up straight away give it some time for the moderators to approve and move out of the spam queue.In reply to: Forum just won’t show up
Oh, that is strange, can you check the contents of the following file for me on your beta 2:
That line should read
$max_index_length = 191;
One other thing, you might need to run the “reset forums” tool first from:
That will delete that old table (and *all* your forum data) and make it available to be created in the updated format.
Thanks for the report @tiiuk, this has been fixed for bbPress 2.6 🙂
If you would like to you can update to bbPress 2.6 Beta 2, bbPress 2.6 has significant enhancements for imported phpBB forums as an added bonus 🙂
Details are here: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-2-6-beta/
Great, so the root issue of this topic is now resolved, awesome +1
I suspect the redirects are caused by the juggling in the
ST_tweak_trash_meta_caps()function, I’d look there, most of that code shouldn’t be required.
p.s. Note, I only cut and pasted your code to test, I didn’t look closely or test beyond what I needed to test 🙂In reply to: Allow users to block posts from other users
In bbPress 1.x there was a feature called “bozo”, what that did was hide any topics and replies from users that had been “bozo’d” though the bozo user would continue to see their own topics and replies.
This feature has not been migrated to bbPress 2.x, there is a discussion in ticket #2755 on some potential ideas and suggests a couple of plugin and plugin ideas that might pave the way for some future bbPress 2.x enhancement.
I’ve saved the code used as a plugin here: https://gist.github.com/ntwb/56ab5a4eab8bbcdc90fc2bdfc2c57838
Could you please test this again @sallyruchman and confirm te results pleaseIn reply to: bbPress 2.6 Beta 2
@mth75 Beta 2 was released yesterday, here’s the link:In reply to: $post_stati = bbp_get_public_status_id();
It sounds like you might be using PHP 7?
If indeed that is the case the issue you are having I think is fixed in bbPress 2.6-beta
You can update (and test) the new bbPress https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-2-6-beta-1/
Right, thanks, this is a BuddyPress issue and not bbPress.
That said, you need to create pages for each of those BuddyPress menu items
If you go to your BuddyPress settings page e.g https://example.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-page-settings it should show what pages are and are not associtaed with the BuddyPress components you activated.
For each one missing a page, go create a new WordPress page for each then return and associate each page with the BuddyPress component and hit save 🙂In reply to: Is there an API for bbPress
Apologies @barryhughes-1, Akismet caught your previous posts as spam for some reason /shrug
We’ve got an update that will at least let you know Akismet caught them as spam rather than just an empty void to deploy in the not too distant future 🙂
Per the announcement post:
If you’re going to test 2.6 on a live site, maybe don’t just yet. It runs a database upgrade routine to migrate favorites & subscriptions from usermeta to postmeta, and for large forums that may take a while or possibly lock things up for a bit.
So I’d suggest waiting until we hit beta 2, by then we should be able to better analyse how the upgrade routing has worked for some larger sites, mainly wordpress.org.
I hope you saw that we released bbPress 2.6 beta last night 🙂
There are significant performance increases with 2.6, wordpress.org/support is now running 2.6 alpha, we’ll update it shortly to 2.6 beta.
We’ve got further performance enhancements to come, one that I think you may be running into is the time it takes to post a reply, one change that was merged last night and is now being used here on bbPress.org significantly imporoves that time for adding new replies, another in the works for the same issue is to optimize how subscribers are notified of a new reply in a topic, currently most of that wait period you’re experiencing I would think is coming from topics that have high number of subscribers.
Anyway, I hope this is better news for you 🙂
p.s. WordPress dot org support has ~2.5 million topics and 6 million replies
It sounds like you might be best of posting on buddypress.org?
If you think it is here on the bbPress side of things could you clarify which menu links you are clicking please? Maybe some screenshots would be helpful, share them via imgur.comIn reply to: How to delete or empty 50000 spam replies and topics
