    Thanks Lynq.
    Hmm, tried creating new topic twice in last 12 hours and they’ve failed to appear so no idea what’s going on on these forums.

    Anyway, slightly different question. Any idea what file and location I need to insert code into so that something appears after the Topic and before the reply? I want to start inserting Ads in that location using Simple Ad Manager and have a code snippet I need to insert.

    Oh power to you for being so incredibly helpful, Lynq.
    I tested it out on my local machine and that works beautifully – THANK YOU!

    Interestingly enough, all that other stuff didn’t make much difference, other than turn the brackets and commas that are the counts after the sub-forums into numbers. I reverted back to the default loop-single-forum.php to return to the correctly format.

    Just waiting for the cache CSS to deploy but it is going to work now.
    You’ve been extremely patient and instructive so again, heaps of praise to you, mate.

    Well, thanks for your efforts.
    Nothing has changed and it still looks crap 🙂

    For all the supposed theme compatibility, this sort of kinda basic stuff is disappointing.
    I’ll have another look since I’ve already spent too many hours just to get a bullet point listing – wow.

    Done all that.
    Can you check out http://www.geekandjock.com/relationship-forum and suggest what I might have borked up?

    @rastarr

    omg, so am I copying the file bbpress-functions.php into the theme root and then adding this other code at the bottom and then modding the loop-single-forum.php file?

    @rastarr

    The stuff above it is the code you gave me so that is probably where the issue must be.
    But I don’t know what could be wrong. Goodness this is so crazy.

    I’ve looked at pasting it here 4 times but no luck.

    Line 43 is now:

    Unsure where the missing ‘)’ is. This is so incredibly frustrating for a non-coder to make a minor adjustment.

    Oh cool, thx – now moved. Now I get this error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ‘)’ in /Users/MartinC/Sites/gaj/wp-content/themes/parallelus-mingle/bbpress/loop-single-forum.php on line 43

    Warning: missing endblock() for startblock(‘middle’) in /Users/MartinC/Sites/gaj/wp-content/themes/parallelus-mingle/framework/theme-functions/layout-and-design.php on line 137

    Still without a clue 🙂

    If only had I some idea what you were talking about.

    I’ve now finally understood the cryptic comment on formatting that was mentioned previously and that refers to the altered , and “

    I’ve created a directory under my main theme directory which is theme/bbp-theme-compat/bbpress and that final subdirectory has now got the file called loop-single-forum.php in it.

    Is this what was meant by placing that file under the active theme?

    Apologies for not being sharp on coding here. Some comments just go straight over some people’s heads.

    Cheers

    well I get a bit of an error, like so:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CLASS, expecting ')' in /Users/MartinC/Sites/gaj/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/bbp-theme-compat/bbpress/loop-single-forum.php on line 25
    
    Warning: missing endblock() for startblock('middle') in /Users/MartinC/Sites/gaj/wp-content/themes/parallelus-mingle/framework/theme-functions/layout-and-design.php on line 137
    

    Any ideas?
    Would have preferred to do it via CSS since hacking the core code will get overwriten but if it can’t be helped then it can’t.

    No idea on this error though.
    Thanks for any help

    I’ve got a reasonably complex set of plugins myself.

    I’ve upgraded to WP 3.4 and bbPress 2.03 with minimal issues.

    I’d suggest that you’ve either got a plugin conflict and/or a theme that isn’t 3.4 compatible.

    Your first port of call is to revert to the bog standard WP theme for testing and then if that doesn’t resolve things, start by disabling plugins.

    And then report back here

    Just to chime in here, I used the gComvertor guys and the experience and assistance was great.

    I migrated my Drupal based forums over to bbPress last Xmas, with their help.

    Great service and fast conversion process – and you pay once it’s done and you’re satisfied too!

    Do you know whether it’ll be possible to inject other code into Topics and/or Replies which other Custom Post Types allow but not yet bbPress?

    This is like Advertising or Social Media icons.

    As an example, I have the WP Socializer plugin installed for Social Sharing. When questioned about it working, the author replied with:

    “Please note that WP Socializer works in all pages or places where there the <?php the_content(); ?> function is called in the theme.”

    This seems to be the case for any other Social plugin so I’m guessing bbPress post types do not have this included.

    Further, I’m using Simple Ads Manager for injecting advertising space as well as other stuff. Works fine by picking a Custom Post Type and bbPress Topics and Replies show up, except nothing is displayed so I presume these aren’t following Custom Post Type convention, in some way either.

    Any ideas on these things?

    Brilliant!

    The https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-bbpress/ works a treat.

    Though apparently it does need to be updated for bbPress 2.1 so people should be aware of this.

    For me, it works just how I’d have thought it should work as a total WordPress Search package. What’s the point of a site wide forum if people can’t search all content?

    I do use the bbPress-recaptcha plugin.

    I’ve disabled Akismet as I use IntenseDebate for the rest of my site and, unfortunately for everyone, ID doesn’t have any bbPress integration.

    It’s still a Taglogic issue, as far as I see.

    Anyways, looks like it is unlikely to get fixed in core.

    Well, with all the Spam that Forums get as well as allowing Anonymous posters to also post BUT get moderated, I (and many others) are having to use the plugin at https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bbpressmoderation/

    For my Relationships Forum, obviously people are more inclined to seek help when they’re not obliged to leave their public identities.

    So this plugin leaves all Topics and Replies in a Pending and unpublished state.

    The issue with Spam posts are these Spammers are also pumping the Tag with URLs or other rubbish.

    From a logic point of view, Pending and/or Unpublished Topics/Replies shouldn’t affect anything for a Published Topic.

    But they are. I’m seeing Published Topics losing already established Tags from unPublished and Awaiting Moderation Repies which, in my opinion, is a bbPress bug and certainly not a logical workflow.

    Can we get some understanding why this behaviour doesn’t happen with the default template thou I.e. on this forum?

    Self policing is an open invitation to abuse the tagging system which is happening to me, at least.

    I actually would prefer to add some placeholder test between the Forum Title and the breadcrumbs.

    Any ideas where this stuff is output?

    The unfortunate part is it’s likely to be overwritten on any and all plugin updates though.

    That and maybe raise a good thread in how best to combat Spam in a bbPress forum.

    To see this happen so much at bbPress.org certainly suggests to people that the forum software is wide open to spam attack, if you ask me.
