    so when you are doing all this testing, has the w3 cache plugin been deactivated? and have you then cleared your browser?

    As SE says working on say twentythirteen with just bbPress as a plugin works, so if this is not working for you, then you will need to look to your host provider for help.

    “2. this is an old installation, few days back it was working fine from 10 days back i am getting this error in Dashboard>replies.

    3. This error is always been there.”

    Sorry but can you confirm that it was working, but started to produce the error 10 days ago – answers 2&3 seem to contradict.

    Good question !

    I’ll take a look after the weekend if I get a moment !

    @robin-w

    there are two capabilities within bbpress roles

    ‘delete_topics’
    ‘delete_others_topics’

    Looks like the plugin is changing the wrong one.

    I presume it is the participant role that you like delete topic on ?

    If so, please come back and confirm, and I’ll cut a quick filter for you after the weekend if you know how to add some code to your functions file.

    if it worked before, then something has changed.

    If you want to stop it using the template then create a ‘bbpress’ folder in the root of your theme, and copy

    wp-content/pluigins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/loop-single-reply.php across to this new folder.

    The edit to remove the code that displays this – lines 47 to 55 have an if(keymaster) statement that display this info

    Ok, so if I understand you problem correctly, what you’d like is the main forum page to show is

    1.
    Category
    Forum
    Subforum
    forum
    subforum

    The subforums are not currently showing?

    and

    2. for each to have a description?

    you are trying to achieve this by using a wordpress page and shortcodes.

    What confuses me is that you give a link to the page you want to use – if this is a real page, then what is preventing you form using it?

    Sorry if I’m not understanding you correctly

    ok, lets see if it is a conflict problem

    Check other plugins

    Check that no other plugins are affecting this.

    Turn off all other plugins, and see if that fixes the problem. If the problem is resolved, add back one at a time to see which is causing the conflict.

    Check themes

    If plugins are not the cause, then it may be a theme issue. Switch to a default theme, such as twentytwelve, and test.

    Mark,

    sorry I’m not a buddypress guy – was hoping that buddypress would get you to an answer!

    @robin-w

    Presuming it is buddypress you are using, then your question would be better on their support site.

    I don’t have buddypress experience.

    @robin-w

    yes, but you do need to

    a) show some patience – we are all volunteers here and have lives outside of bbPress
    b) answer fully questions asked – these are not random or standard, they are specific to your problem. All are asked for a reason.

    To help me to help you, I need information to get to a problem definition, and from there to a solution.

    Please respond to each question below

    1. I now understand your problem as follows :
    bbPress is fully working, except that when you go into Dashboard>replies you get an internal server error.
    Is this correct? If not precisely when/how do you get the error
    2. Have you just installed bbpress, or is this an old installation?
    3. Has this error always been there, or has it appeared?
    4. What else has changed on the site
    5. What other plugins are your running?
    6. Are you running any caching software?
    7. can you confirm that with ALL plugins except bbPress AND a default theme such as twentytwlelve installed you still get this error? and which default theme you used.

    Thanks

    bbpress only works on wordpress, so no your can’t directly run it on Magento, so yes a link would do it.

    Ok, I am also confused !

    If http://www.techgreet.com/ is your site, it seems to be working fine on the client side, I can access and see the forums.

    So for the server error – when exactly do you receive this error?
    Are there particular actions that you take to create this?
    Have you contacted your server administrator, and what did they say?

    for the tab error – I presume this is in the dashboard?
    Have you just installed bbpress, or is this an old installation?
    What else has changed
    What other plugins are your running?

    It may be a plugin or theme conflict – not sure whether you tried deactivating all plugins except bbPress viz

    Check other plugins

    Check that no other plugins are affecting this.

    Turn off all other plugins, and see if that fixes the problem. If the problem is resolved, add back one at a time to see which is causing the conflict.

    Check themes

    If plugins are not the cause, then it may be a theme issue. Switch to a default theme, such as twentytwelve, and test.

    The way the forum looks will depend on both how your theme is set up, as well as styling changes within bbpress.

    There’s not a fantastic amount of styling in this forum, basically it’s just a theme with a left hand sidebar, with some standard widgets in it and a couple of special ones.

    Can you help us to define your problem.

    when you talk about the “group forums” and the “general forums” do you mean ones set up using buddypress, or how have these been set up?


    Robin W

    @robin-w

    I’d try and eliminate any conflicts

    Deactivate any other plugins and see if a disappeared topic reappears. If so, re-enable the plugins one at a time to see which is causing the issue.

    If that doesn’t help, then try switching to a default theme such as twenty twelve and see if it’s a theme issue.

    Come back and let us know how you get on

    elegant – depends !

    If you simply alter this file then on any bbpress version update you’ll lose the changes, so make a note of them.

    There are alternatives

    1. Add the css styling change to the style.css file within your child theme.

    If you have a child theme, then this is ideal, as neither plugin nor theme update will affect your change. Simply add the code below to your style.css

    /*Styling for forum description */
    #bbpress-forums div.bbp-forum-content {
    clear:both !important;
    margin-left: 0px !important;
    padding: 0 0 0 0 !important;
    	}
    

    2. If you only have a main theme, then consider using a child theme – it’s quick and easy to create one, basically it’s just a theme that you create that says “use this main theme, but then add these bits”. Google child theme video and you’ll get loads of help.

    3. Add this to the style.css in your main theme
    But you’ll need to keep a note of it for theme upgrades, so this is really no better than changing in the bbPress template, and neater to do it in bbPress than your theme

    4. Make a directory called css in your theme (either child or main) and copy the bbpress.css file into it. Then make changes there. this then won’t be overwritten on upgrades, but you will not get the benefit of changes to the default bbpress.css that may be in upgrades.

    Overall 1. is by far the best choice, as you keep the code no matter what happens. Otherwise keep a note of your changes (which are fine, and are what I did to test prior to putting the end result in my style.css), so that you can replicate them on upgrades.
