My mistake on the private rss feeds issue. The first plugin in this thread (not the Selectable Private Forums plugin) did seem to make the feeds private. I’ve installed SPF.
All working well, now. Thanks.
Can I make another feature request for any private forum plugin, please? I want to have a private forum but still have the RSS feeds accessible. At the moment, if I use the plugin, the feeds become inaccessible without being logged in – i.e. services such as bloglines can’t see the feeds. I know that making the rss feeds available, in effect, makes the forum “public again” . . . . I guess the ideal solution is another plugin to give the feeds a randomised code in their URL . . . . but even if this isn’t possible, not being able to find the feed address without being logged in provides an adequate level of deterrent for my purposes.
Can anyone help?
OK, I’ve solved the problem!
The version of PHP on my server is 4.4.4, which should be compatible with bbpress. I recalled that in my moodle installation, we hit issues that could be resolved by adding a .htaccess file with the following line:
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
i.e. asking for php to be interpreted as php 5? (I’m not a php person – is that correct?).
Creating a .htaccess file with this line in it and dropping it into my bbpress folder solves the tag.php problem . . . .
I’ve reuploaded bbpress – makes no difference.
I’ve removed plugin (display_name.php)
I temporarily renamed my_templates folder to return back to default template.
The forum now sits at http://www.learning2goblog.org/forum
Click any of the tags and it takes you to the correct page. Click on the breadcrumb to take you back to tags.php and it dies as described.
All very strange . . . .
Thanks for any help:
$bb->mod_rewrite = false;
$bb->akismet_key = false;
$bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘l2go_’;
.htaccess is empty. I had previosuly attempted to turn permalinks on, without success. I don’t know if the problem existed before then or not.
Any ideas? The forum is working well apart from this problem. Tags.php works fine as long as there is a ?tag=something; without that I get the error above.
