Front End Publishing @Onlijn.com
Article published with Front-End-Publishing
I agree with you there, and I am hoping to improve where they failed
in the mean time, a shot of the BBPress forum index
Yes yours is tiny but clean (too clean for me personally), but I am trying to achieve a much more complicated website then that.
I am trying to recreate Facebooks functions and add extra functionalities like blogging, forums and detailed profiles for users to name a few
It is quite a list of plugins, some hardcoded into my child theme, others just as plugins.
Rewrote most of the template files
Version 2.1.1, tried updating yesterday but broke my site so have to rewrite my plugins before updating
BBpress Like Button
Likes for forums
BP Profile Widgets
To show a music or video player on members profile
Buddypress Activity Plus
For activity likes
BuddyPress Activity Stream Bump to Top
Liked and commented activity goes to top of list
Buddypress Upload Avatar Ajax
To allow avatar upoad during registration
So members can write blogs without multisite activated
GD bbPress Attachments
For forum image uploads
BP Profile as Homepage
All links to a user links to profile page instead of user activity
And I have a few plugins hardcoded into my child theme, not sure about the names
BuddyPress Group Customizer Lite
For group backgrounds
For a signature on forum posts
Easy View count
displays views count on single-topic-list
BP custom background for user profiles
Or something like that to recreate the facebook/twitter function
And I added a lot more functions that I found through other members on these forums that have been added to my Functions.php etc.
Theme had had a lot of alterations since my last visit and is almost finished, have a look.

What would be the purpose?….really long titles will only look bad on site and have little to no SEO purpose I think.
And this is an article I made and published through previous page
Now I am working on the actual “articles” main page where there will be thumbs/excerpts for each article etc.
So here is my latest addition to Onlijn.com.
Something to separate it more from facebook, and I hope in a positive way.
I can now promote members to authors, who can create content for the site through the front-end.
For authors there is a new link in their menu from which they can access their “Onlijn.com Blogger” page.
This is the actual Blogger page I just finished creating
with lots of thanks to the maker of the Front End Publishing plugin
Oops I am typing too fast for BBpress
Th green labels are a lot easier on the eye then their Buddypress red counterparts
And these forums look good, I also agree with that, just those Category labels are ugly, but also understand their purpose.
Yes, the landing page is very much a work in progress.
It is also the page where I am testing my @media queries on so lots of CSS problems.
If I knew how XAMPP worked I would develop sites local first, but I am a total noob and have chosen to build whilst live.
Every page is still under construction, but I aim to finish before the end of February.
I am adding a few more functionalities, like member blogs, and as soon as they all work as expected I can finalize the CSS.
Thanks for the response.
I agree, plugins tend to break WordPress every now and then, but I did hardcode certain plugins directly into my child theme, these can not update unless I update them myself.
In my first 12 months of WordPress studies/experiments there were a lot ofplugins binned due to conflicts or outright fails.
It is the same with the Buddypress site, eyesore.
Not the way to get people to the right category but makes it clutered
Hi, thanks for the kind words, im humbled.
The actual BBpress forums look pretty cool I think, and these discussion boards are part of what seperates Onlijn.com from Facebook.
The new home / landing page
Logged-in mmbers will not see this page but get redirected to activity wall
All Avatars and member names now link to their profiles instead of their activity.
The extended profile page
Members can now share music/video and images in left sidebar through the frontend
Good luck, let us know how it went
Now almost 100% mobile friendly, even the BBpress forums are looking slick.
Now I will start looking for members, anyone is welcome to join.
Something else is wrong with your wordpress, it shows your name in the admin bar and menu items.
I see a menu with one link only called “sample page”, so the top menu is showing.
In your menu’s edit screen, on the list with pages etc on the left side of the screen, does it say “Forums”, should be under “pages” and “posts”
Instead of making your own link you should select the forums here and click “add to menu” if you want them in your menu
If there is no “forums” option then there is something very wrong with your install or theme.In reply to: BBPress shortcode to display user profile
You could add buddypress plugin to add more profiling options, I run both mainly for that reason on onlijn.com
You can see how I think the profiles can be improved here: my-profile
Although it is a large plugin that could add too many functions you do not need, maybe it is the answer you are looking for.
I see in chrome that the css class of logged-in is added to the body of your page
Somehow it thinks that I am already logged in
Also, visiting your site it says: Howdy Irb
Something has gone awfully wrong cause I am not Irb
I guess that you need to fix that and find your forums exactly where they need to be
Sorry, dumb moment, so you have made 4 forums.
If you go to any of those forums through backend, can you press “view forum”?
Have you created an actual forum through your backend?
Once you created a first forum you can go to appearances => menus
and add a link to your forum page to your menu there.
Nice one Robkk, that is very useful, how come I have not been able to find this as easy earlier i dont understand.
Another way to cheat a little is to make an actual page, call it yourdomain-forums
Then you could add the existing shortcode from BBpress like this
<h1>title of category 1</h1>
<h1>title of category 2</h1>
Then make a link in your menu to that page
I am doing it here
