In reply to: Troubleshooting a WordPress page titled 'forums'
Hi Stephen, my upgrade was 2.3.2 to 2.5.4 not 2.5.3 to 2.5.3.
You were correct, thank you. The problem was caused by a permalink conflict. The page I am using the shortcode had the slug
forums. Changing the slug to something else so it was not the same as the slug used by Forum Root (or visa versa) resolved the issue.
The question remains though, why is this a problem with this version of bbpress over the older version I was using?In reply to: Plugin to upload a profile picture bbPress
Profile pictures are a WordPress setting, not specifically bbpress. WordPress calls profile pictures ‘Avatars’ and you will find the settings for Avatars under the ‘Discussion’ link under ‘Settings’ on the Admin Dashboard.
By default WordPress does not allow users to upload their own Avatars to your WordPress website but instead uses a third party host called Gravatar. If you want your uses to upload directly to wordpress then you will need to install a plugin that allows them to do this. Search in the plugin directory on wordpress.org for ‘avatar’. I am currently evaluating Add Local Avatar for the the site I manage, seems to work OK.In reply to: Remove topic and reply from dashboard
I use the Adminimize plugin. Amongst all the other useful settings there is an option to set what menu items are displayed by role.In reply to: css formatting not working
drsim, Haven’t used it myself but there is the plugin bbPress Topics for Posts
Ben, I’ve had more success with the 2.1 development version, available as a zip at the bottom of https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/branches/plugin.
All I have done is create a bbpress directory within my theme folder and in there copied in any files from pluginsbbpressbbp-themesbbp-twentytenbbpress that I wanted to modify. I have not moved any files out of the plugins directory.
I haven’t had much success with setting the css for bbpress from within my theme. In the end I ended up renaming pluginsbbpressbbp-themesbbp-twentytencssbbpress.css to bbpress_master.css and creating a new bbpress.css in the same folder. Within this new file I have my modifications with the following as the first lines
* bbPress specific CSS
* @package bbPress
* @subpackage Theme
/* =bbPress Style
I will need to be careful updating bbpress as I will lose my bbpress.css. Until I work out how to have css working through my theme it will do.
