  • I don’t mind these topics at all, it gives us something to think about and reflect on upon, I think topics like these are important, I might not agree with everything said but I do actually agree with quite a lot. :)

    Constructive feedback will always be welcome and appreciated :)

    Yes, “individual sub-forums moderators” is in the next release of bbPress, bbPress 2.6 :)

    Just download it and activate it like a typical plugin :) And of course make any changes your wanting to make copy and pasting those lines to add more should suffice :)

    This will do what your after, you can customize this to your hearts content, add 1 or 1,000 extra profile fields, the fields will dynamically register into bbPress user profiles and templates :)

    https://gist.github.com/ntwb/c70caf5a0aa9d3062a6d

    Because us Australians are cool :)

    What happens if you logout and log in again, also fully refreshing the import page would do the same thing, if you’ve left the import page open for too long without doing anything then the MySQL connection is dropped from the database and is most often the cause of only seeing Starting without any other error.

    in wbb4 there is no saltโ€ฆ

    Yes, if that salt field is not in the user table then delete that block of code from your custom script.

    @susfse You are using define( 'WP_DEBUG', true ); and because of this one of your plugin or themes is doing it wrong and bbPress is informing you of that, to fix the issue start deactivating each of your plugins until you no longer see the message, then you will have the name of plugin causing the issue, you can then contact the plugin author about fixing the issue. If it’s not a plugin, switch your theme to Twenty Fifteen to determine if it’s your theme.

    Any plans to support importing of private messages?

    Yes, I want to, I just haven’t worked out the best way to do this :(

    2.) I have noticed that my existing SMF database had a handful of deleted accounts…

    All of your questions in regard to this point ship in bbPress 2.6, with a few more not yet mentioned. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks for the report, we’re looking into the issue.

    Stagger Lee,

    The plugins you mention, Jetpack, that’s maintained by Automattic, Advanced TinyMCE is just a standard WordPress plugin that happens to be maintained by a core developer as his own project aside from core, Pods is a 3rd party plugin also not associated with WordPress, your last example, Shortcake is a featured plugin that is being proposed to be merged into core, this plugin has been bought to the core team to be considered for merging into core, the WordPress core team has not gone out and found plugins to maintain or merged.

    There’s details of WordPress’ featured plugins available:
    https://make.wordpress.org/core/2015/07/10/feature-plugin-chat-on-july-14/
    https://make.wordpress.org/core/features-as-plugins/

    We are happy to do the same with bbPress, if a plugin developer comes to us with a plugin that they would like to see merged in bbPress we are more than happy to look into doing just that, the same way WordPress does. :)

    Here is a list in my opinion should have under Author names at least one nam of bbPress core developers. Not of things on list has anything to do with me personally, just using other popular forum scripts as reference.

    Sorry, I disagree with this, if a plugin author or the community has a problem with a plugin we’ll happily help out where we can when asked. As to maintaining that list of plugins, speaking for myself, I have other projects that I am interested in and being asked to maintain a bunch of other plugins is not something I am interested in doing. :)

    As the bbPress slogan goes “Forums made the WordPress way”, we try and do everything the same way WordPress does, we maintain the core software and make it as open as possible for developers to extend with plugins and themes, but because we are not as big as WordPress, we don’t have the same amount of developers developing for bbPress.

    There might be a bug if your site contains a port in the url though.

    This is what I am suspecting it might be, we’ve had issues in the past with users using MAMP on Mac using port 8888

    Have a look at the following post, you’d want to diagnose the issue in a similar way to that it is described here:

    https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/how-to-get-bbpress-to-work-on-a-local-wamp-installation/#post-151416

    If your site is using the standard port 80 then I’d suggest disabling all of your plugins and switching to one of the default themes Twenty Fifteen, Fourteen, or Thirteen with no plugins activated, if you cannot view the dashboard with the above configuration then it will be something in the setup environment, if that works activate bbPress, if that works then start activating your other plugins and you should eventually get to a plugin that causes your dashboard to disappear, when you do thats the offender.

    Also to note, until bbPress 2.5 pt_BR is 100% translated the only translations delivered via WordPress Update will be bbPress 2.4, language packs are only built once they are complete at 100%

    This link shows the bbPress language packs available:
    https://api.wordpress.org/translations/plugins/1.0/?slug=bbpress&version=2.5

    These need to be translated to 100% to get these via WordPress Update
    https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/bbpress/2.5.x/pt-br/default

    If you can help translate those strings then you’ll get bbPress 2.5 translations, you can also get in contact with your locale team via https://br.wordpress.org/

    A year or two ago we had lots of translation issues with bbPress, to fix this I got en_AU (English Australian) of the ground and translated all the things, WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress and help out on the #polyglots team https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/

    The string I translated to test was the Pending string replaced with stickfinger for en_AU:

    https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/bbpress/dev/en-au/default?filtersstatus=either&filtersoriginal_id=196793&filterstranslation_id=9251229

    I then downloaded the .po and .mo files (at the bottom of that screen you can export these) and replaced my en_AU bbpress-en_AU.mo/bbpress-en_AU.po files in /wp-content/languages/plugins

    What happens if you export the .po/.mo files from /bbpress/2.5.x/pt-br/default?

    Also make sure your files are named bbpress-pt_BR.mo and bbpress-pt_BR.po

    Any change you also changed your theme recently or an update as also installed?

    What happens if you switch your theme to one of the included themes? Twenty Fourteen or Fifteen?

    I just changed the https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/bbpress/dev pending string to stickfinger and it works as expected ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m looking into this now @stickfinger, if you have any updates on the testing you did please let me know :)

    @avalon98 It still works for me, are you sure the plugin/theme your using this in is still activated?

    What happens if you resave your permalinks? Go to Settings > Permalinks

    A more common and now default of WordPress is to use the Post name format, also known as pretty permalinks, as such the following would be what you’d see for the “maine” forum

    http://www.plowandanchorconnect.com/forums/forum/plow-and-anchor-forums/maine

    Yoast SEO issue on GitHub here -> https://github.com/Yoast/wpseo-news/issues/146

    It is not a solution, therefore will not solve the problem and could introduce all kinds of of other problems in any or all of the 3 plugins.

    For any code you can create anonymous (i.e. You do not require a GitHub account) and paste your code here https://gist.github.com it makes the code much easier to read than posting here on bbPress.org.

    The 4 tables would be wbb1_board, wbb1_thread, wbb1_post and wcf1_user

    Open up phpMyAdmin on your install, navigate to the database, click one of the 4 tables I listed above, then click structure, take a screen shot of similar to this example here.
