    great

    Can you go into te users table and note the ID of your crissfit admin

    Then in the usermeta for that ID, can you see if you have parameters for _bbp_topic_count and _bbp_reply_count, the line items may be preceded by wp_ eg wp__bbp_topic_count

    if so let me know what values are set.

    I’m trying to figure out if my plugin is correctly referencing the database, but the database is incorrect, or if I have a parameter wrong. It works on my site.

    Sorry wasn’t yelling – have now seen that this is a password protected page rather than a wordpress password

    will take a look

    Don’t post passwords on forums !! edit and delete the one above from the post above or you’ll be hacked very quickly, and then change the password for the site

    no, simply click the avatar – for instance since this support forum is bbpress,. just click the picture of pigs to the left of this post – you’ll see my topic count.

    Do this for your website, an dit should show the posts for whichever user is in the avatar

    @robin-w

    If you click the avatar, you should go through to the profile page for that user, where bbpress shows the topic and reply count – can you tell me if those are also 0?

    This will tell me whether it is a bbpress or my plugin issue

    Would be worth a try at

    Dashboard>tools>forums and click the first 6 with “recalculate” as the start

    It may be that it’s out of sync somewhere

    sometimes there will appear to be a forum with 70 topics, but on the fornt page only a forum with 0 topics.

    after you get this, you need to do a repair

    tools>forums and as yours is a small database I’d just click all of them

    @robin-w

    Dashboard>settings>discussion

    and unclick “show avatars” near the bottom of the page

    Presume you fixed this as can’t see the issue !

    @robin-w

    Not sure how much help I can be, but can you post a link to a forum thread where this is happening?

    and say which replies they can’t see – eg is it all their own replies, or just the first one?

    I’d also suggest eliminating conflicts by disabling all the plugins (except bbpress of course!) and seeing if the problem goes away. If it does, re-enable the plugins one by one to see which is causing the conflict.

    if the plugins are not the issue, then change to a default theme such as twentytwelve and see if it still occurs

    bbpress 2.4.1 comes with it’s own search function, which only searches forums.

    this post also describes forum only search boxes which might help

    and also a widget

    doesn’t seem logical or make sense to me

    Nor to me !!

    Perhaps one for JJJ or Stpehen edgar to answer

    It’s no doubt linked to the fact that bbpress is a plugin. I also run MarketPress on my site (an on-line shop) and the user details for that also don’t appear until I edit – so it’s not just bbpress that doesn’t do it, which would tend to indicate a wordpress constriction, rather than bbpress failing.

    I still don’t understand why the forum roles appear in the role drop down after I deactivate bbpress…doesn’t seem logical or make sense to me…but at least I can now add people with forum roles. Thanks for your help

    You don’t need to deactivate bbpress, just create a user, then after creation go straight back in and edit – once you’ve clicked save on the create, you’ll see a bar at the top of the next screen that will say something like “xx user created – edit”, and you can just click that, so whilst an annoyance, quite easy

    Or did you mean something else?

    @robin-w

    Ok, I’ve had a play and sorted out what was wrong

    I’ve now wrapped this up in a plugin, so that you won’t lose it on upgrades.

    This plugin shows

    topics started
    replies written
    total posts

    under the avatar of each post

    The plugin file is very easy, and you can edit it to remove lines or change the wording

    you can download it from

    bbp topic count plugin

    @robin-w

    ok, so you’ll need to edit

    web/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/loop-single-reply.php

    line 45 shows the avatar, so try adding a line 46

    <?php echo bbp_get_user_post_count( $user_id ); ?>

    haven’t tried it !

    @robin-w

    so what is showing now as the sidebar – is this your blog sidebar?

    In reply to: Font Color in Forums

    @robin-w

    OR !!

    You could change the bbpress background to match your site, so that the lettering can stay the same

    If you like that better, I’ll work out what needs changing !

    In reply to: Font Color in Forums

    Robin W
    Moderator

    @robin-w

    That color is set by your parament theme css

    wp-content/themes/parament/style.css

    Line 81 sets this color, the code wrapping it is

    a {
        color: #989EAE;
        text-decoration: none;
    }

    change the color line to

    color: #000000;

    You can :
    edit this file to change it, but any theme updates will overwrite it, so you’ll need to keep a record of what you changed.
    or create a child theme to overwrite this
    or use a plugin such as jetpack to add it using their css editor

    For child themes google “creating a child theme video” to see lots on how to do this.

    Not sure I understand what your problem is, but let’s try this in case !

    When you create a new user, then only the blog role shows. If you save and then go back in and edit that user, you’ll see the wordpress roles at the bottom of the page which you can then set.

    @robin-w

    “under the user” where do you mean?
    You’ll see topic and reply counts when you display the user’s profile.

    please post a link to a page where you want it displayed

    @robin-w

    If WP tweaks doens’t work, then other solutions are unlikely to without resolving why WP tweaks doesn’t – basically it just adds a custom sidebar as part of it’s plugin.

    What theme are you using, and can you post a link to the current forum
