    either you have fixed your issue or you expect us to be mind readers – please confirm fixed, or detail the issues

    It could be a theme or plugin issue

    Plugins

    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    Themes

    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentytwelve, and see if this fixes.

    then come back

    I’d not expect any forum software to support this function and not at all sure how this would work.

    Your explanation above is not clear in terms of

    How a new ‘applicant’ would post an application on a forum without registering first
    Then who would be able to see his post (and how do you stop interlopers who may have registered in disguise seeing this – how do you tell the difference?)
    And what he would be able to see apart from his topic?

    Why are you using a forum for an application, why not just use manual registration? or an application form? lots of plugins to do that eg cformsII

    1) just use the

    [bbp-single-forum id=$forum_id] – Display a single forums topics. eg. [bbp-single-forum id=32]
    

    shortcode on the page to do that

    2) That can all be done using coding, but would require a lot of code and expertise both within bbpress/wordpress and to link it to a payment product to take the money, and you’ll lose a lot of revenue in commission on 75p payments on say payal, who take a 20p a transaction charge as well as 3.4% commission.

    Ballpark say £100-£200 for a coder to write that all for you (without looking that’s the sort of figure I’d expect to charge to write that, but it could be a lot more)

    You would do better to look at a ‘membership’ site plugin, and take a payment per say ten ‘ads’, and use something like ‘bbp notify’ to know when they’ve posted, and a simple excel spreadsheet which you manually update. Then suspend membership or block posting when they have used up their limit.

    Topic pages are not appearing. They appear as links on the indexes, and I can create new ones, however if I click them, I am taken to a page of a messed up template

    so I suspect that the links are working fine, it’s just the template is conflicting, suspect theme issue

    It could be a theme or plugin issue

    Plugins

    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    At a guess (and I haven’t checked) I’d say that

    bbp_get_forum_id() 
    

    works for a new topic, but returns a null when editing, hense your ‘==’ is never fulfilled.

    Since you should have $topic_id set in either case, maybe try something like

    $forum_id = bbp_get_topic_forum_id( $topic_id );
    

    to get the forum or just use that if editing?

    Have a play and see if that fixes.

    you can just untick the toolbar option for each user in dashboard>users and edit a user

    If you want to disable for all but admins, put this in our functions file

    <?php
    
    //disable toolbar for non-admins
    
    if (!current_user_can('manage_options')) {
    show_admin_bar(false);
    }
    

    Functions files and child themes – explained !

    Lots of info stored against a topic in wp_postmeta and several parameters you could use, but the most obvious is

    _bbp_last_active_time

    so your sql statement would search through wp_posts for a post type of topic where postmeta post id _bbp_last_active_time was greater than a month.

    Easiest way to get you head round this is to look at a forum topic in your website that has replies, and make a note of the topic number in the heading (the #nnnn eg #15108 bit!).

    Then using phpmyadmin, go into wp_postmeta table and type the following into the sql query

    SELECT * FROM wp_postmeta WHERE post_id=15108

    where 15108 is the topic id number.

    You’ll see all the data stored against it, and the above should become clearer.

    post type is stored in the wp-posts table

    SELECT * FROM wp_posts WHERE post_type=’topic’

    not easily from within wordpress.

    How many users do you have?

    Do you have phpmyadmin access? If you do then have a look at the wp_users table – don’t worry accessing the database isn’t really that scary as long as you go slowly and make sure you don’t update !

    I’ll need to do a small update.

    Small update done, version 2.4 should count the users correctly !

    ok, so I take it they don’t show under

    dashboard>users>all users

    and that they haven’t set an alias, so their display name is different than their login?

    does your forum support ‘anonymous posting’ ?

    Dashboard>settings>forums and look for ‘anonymous posting’


    Robin W
    Moderator

    @robin-w

    would like it to appear on the “wardens-forum/”

    Dashboard>settings>forums and in Forum Root Slug untick ‘prefix all forum content..’

    ps. to hide the search link

    Dashboard>settings>forums and untick search – allow forum wide search

    if you set a user as moderator and allocate them to a group then they can moderate that group and any open groups

    it doesn’t come up with that user under group1

    I’ve just looked and I haven’t altered how this tab displays sine I changed another aspect, so this doesn’t work – I’ll need to do a small update. Thanks for spotting this.

    @robin-w

    ability for a user to be set up as a ‘private group moderator’

    see the help text, you can have moderators of single private groups under the plugin.

    the moderator from above can grant access to users who have requested access to a private forum

    Sorry, doesn’t currently do this, and have no plans to do so for the plugin as yet.

    Without being able to see, hard to know what your original issue is.

    However you should have forums set as

    News
    Sick and injured seals
    etc. and then your ‘posts’ are the topics under each forum

    may be a conflict between the Exchange Membership plugin and mine.

    Try deactivating the exchange plugin as a test and see if that fixes. That would confirm a conflict or not

    try just

    .content-area {
    width: 150% !important;
    }

    but that might muck up other areas of the site
