    googled ‘thesis theme & bbpress’ and got several hits saying that bbpress doesn’t function with thesis, and a link to a plugin that might fix it – worth a try or some more googling !

    Integrating bbPress to Thesis framework

    hmm, suspect that the category no base might be the issue, but you’ve said you’ve tried it with it disabled.

    what theme are you using – try switching to a default one eg twentytwelve and see if the issue is theme related.

    Has topics stopped working, or has never worked, or is this a new install?

    ok, plan b

    upload the “widget logic” plugin

    This lets you set widgets to appear in certain conditions

    Once uploaded, using your normal sidebar, you can set when a widget appears

    You’ll see a new box appear when you add/edit each widget saying “widget logic”. if you want it to appear on a forum page type

    is_bbpress()
    If you want the widget to appear on other pages, but not obn the forum page type

    !is_bbpress()
    so you login widget would have the logic

    is_bbpress()
    and appear only on forum pages

    If you didn’t want search on the forum page, you’d put

    !is_bbpress()
    on that widget and it will not appear

    The forum – http://massagepracticebuilder.com/forums/forum/diy-websites/

    shows as a forum with no topics. Create topics there and it should all work.

    The path is basically forums/forum/diy-websites
    /forums – ie we are in the forums area
    /forum – we are in the forum list area
    /diy-websites – this is the diy website forum

    you’ll get /topic when you post a topic.

    ok, I have 2.5.1 bbpress working with WP 3.8 on a twentyten child.

    I suggest that each of you :

    Disables all of your plugins. If that fixes, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the issue
    If disabling plugins doesn’t work, then with them disabled, switch to a default theme – twentyten, twenty eleven or twentytwelve. If that works, then your theme has an issue
    If any/none of that works, comes back and say exactly what you did
    If you get a fix, let us know what was causing it to help others

    Thanks for that – I’ll post a link to it in the bbpress documentation

    Are your users “registered” ?

    If so you can just make the forums “hidden”

    You should have a forums tab above appearance, and forums in the settings tab.

    I’d un-install and re-install

    As far as I can see it all looks ok. Presume you have permalinks and that the forum slugs set as directed.

    If so try this – sometikes the bbpress sidebar doesn’t quite get there.

    Deactivate bbpress tweaks
    Dashboard>plugins>bbpress tweaks>deactivate

    Go into widgets
    Dashboard>appearance>widgets

    And look at the bottom of the left hand side. You’ll see an “inactive sidebar”, with your entries on
    Below this is an “inactive widgets”
    Drag all the entries from the inactive sidebar to the inactive widgets area.
    This then allows wordpress to delete the sidebar
    I normally log out and in again at this stage – probably not needed, but I’ve never bothered to check
    Then basically reverse the above
    Re-enable bbpress tweaks
    You see the bbpress sidebar returns
    Drag the entries back from the inactive widgets area to the sidebar

    If this works, come back and let me know

    @robin-w

    you can use ‘widget logic’ plugin to control what is shown in sidebars. for bbpress the logic is

    is_bbpress() to display and
    !is_bbpress() to hide

    or if you want a forum specific sidebar use ‘bbpress WP’ tweaks plugin.

    Profile images use the gravatar image see http://en.gravatar.com/ for details

    make the forum hidden, then only registered users can see it.

    Thanks for posting, I tried your website a couple of days ago, and it was hanging, so have only just been able to get on and see what you’re seeing.

    I’d suggest you disable all your plugins and try again. The site should work, but it might be a plugin conflict.

    if that works, add back the plugins one at a time to see which is causing the conflict.

    Otherwise come back and let us know

    ok, I’ve cut justsayno1’s code into a plugin, which you can download from here

    This will then override any user choice, and enforce only username as the display

    bbpress username plugin

    Download this to your PC, and then using dashboard>plugins>add new and select upload files and upload the zipped file to your site

    Let me know what works and doesn’t

    Three things :

    1. As justsayno1 says – the avatar will display the “display name” as the “alt” choice.
    2. The profile page still appears to have the “display name”
    3. I haven’t yet worked out how to take out the user choice to edit what is displayed, even though of course that is now redundant ie doesn’t work

    @Mr-B – give it a go and let me know what works and what doesn’t – I basically just nicked Justsayno’s code.

    @Justsayno1 on No. 1 above, can you point me to where the get-avatar function is in main wordpress (the file name would be great) and I’ll amend and cut that code into the plugin as well

    @Justsayno1 on No.s 2 & 3 – have you fixed these, and if so can you point me to the solutions, and again I’ll add then to the plugin.

    Can you give us an example of where “written by” and which date you want removed ?

    Mr-B,

    If I get a moment in the next few days, I’ll fork all that code into a plugin for you/others.

    If you page’s URL is “xx/forums” and the forum slug is “forum” it won’t appear without the shortcode as they don’t match (one plural, one singular). Also if you add any text to the page (as you have done) then again you’ll need the shortcode. But it should work with the shortcode.

    Can you confirm that the site currently has
    [bbp-forum-index]

    at the bottom, including the square brackets.

    loop-single-reply is the template that displays posts and replies

    wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress

    copy this to a bbpress directory in your theme (see codex for how to do this if needed), and then you should be able to put a “logged in” condition around whatever you want in this. For instance

    <?php bbp_reply_content(); ?>

    to make that bit conditional

    You should set the forums to hidden, then it should work – let me know. I don’t run a set up like this, so am only going by documentation.

    Ok, I’m still struggling because what you describe is not what I see as you have the “DONOTWANTTHISTOBEWHATTHELINKPOINTSTO” still set, so I am not seeing your exact problem.

    You should be able to

    1. set the forum root to “forums”
    2. set permalinks to postname in settings
    3. set the “forum” page permalink to http://mysite.com/forums
    4. Put the shortcode on that page

    and then you can change the actual “forum” page to whatever title you like and as long, and it should all work – mine is set up exactly that way and works.

    You could try disabling seo yoast to eliminate that as a problem.

    what other plugins are you running?
