Unfortunately, this code didn’t work — it removed the content of all forum posts!
This is fantastic — I will definitely test this out.
Am I right in thinking that the two times this line appears:
if ($user_id == 57) $signature 'signature for user 57' ;
Should actually read as:
if ($user_id == 57) $signature = 'signature for user 57' ;
I only have one keymaster, so for my use I’d just want to be able to set a signature for the sole keymaster.
Not in my use case, @robin-w (and I have your great plugin installed and active, by the way). That’s because I want the forum to display WordPress user roles, not bbpress roles. From what I can see in your plugin, I can only change the name of bbpress roles. I hope this makes sense!
That code was very helpful, @codingmachine — one question, though. Is there any way to change the name of the roles that are output to the forum? I don’t want to change the name of the role in WordPress, I just want to change the output.
So, for example, if the user role is “Student”, I want it to output “Client”. Is this possible by editing the code you shared?
This is very interesting. Is there any way to incorporate this into a registration form for bbpress so that members can register and post to the bbpress forum at the same time?
I implemented this as described here, but posts made to bbpress using the registration form are given the username ‘anonymous’. I assume this is because no reference is made to userid in the php snippet — and perhaps also because users do not get logged in upon registration?In reply to: DISable trackbacks and pingbacks [on this page]
Also looking for a fix. Annoying that members who start a discussion post are receiving emails asking them to approve trackbacks.
Thanks for pushing on this. Hopefully it will get resolved.
@bullarni No, this hasn’t been resolved (I’m running the latest stable version of bbpress). I have not tried implementing the patches since they are so old.In reply to: bbPress 2.6 Release Candidate 3
@5lions Have you looked at alternative hosting? I had a nightmare with SiteGround on a very high spec cloud server and was having to continuously scale up resources. After moving elsewhere (and with significantly lower resources) my site is running much, much faster.
Thanks @5lions — very helpful! I could have done with that link a year ago!
Look into installing an SMTP plugin and getting an account at Sendgrid.
This is a buddypress issue and is something I experienced too. See here:
I think the point we’re trying to make is we don’t want email notifications to be determined by the admin. We want users to be able to stop emails on an individual account level, according to their preference. The existing method for members to unsubscribe from individual forums and topics is cumbersome, especially when members have initially subscribed to a large number of topics.
I don’t want to turn off all email subscriptions. However, I do want my users to be able to switch off all subscription email notifications in an easy way, should they wish to do so.
Does this make more sense?
Just an added thought — if the ‘Settings > Email’ page is generated by buddypress, perhaps the email subscription options could be added to the top of the ‘Forums > Subscriptions’ page (I believe this is generated by bbpress).
@casiepa I’d like to see an option on the Settings > Email page that says something along the lines of:
Send an email notice when:
A new post is made in a subscribed forum Yes/No
A new post is made on a subscribed topic Yes/No
Is the ‘Settings > Email’ page generated by buddypress? If so, would this option need to be added elsewhere else?
As for the ‘keep notifications in the forum’ — that’s for @juliemarie99 to clarify. I suspect they’re referring to members being able to disable email notifications but keep the online notifications that appear on the notifications page.In reply to: Performance after conversion
@johnjamesjacoby I’m OK with giving it a try, as long as there is some support around if anything goes wrong!
This is great news. I can’t wait to see these performance improvements and hope 2.6 moves swiftly through beta.
Are you running BuddyPress, too? If so, have you tried disabling BuddyPress to see if that speeds up the posting process?
