    Can only suggest you try it in the base ie change your current forum page, and try it witgh forums as the web address.

    Caming,

    Given that you work in digital marketing for a living, I would have thought that you understood the difference between being paid for something, and getting it for free.

    BBpress is FREE – if you want instant support – go pay for something, otherwise accept that this FREE software, with non-instant support provided for by a community who try to help and improve the FREE product – you know then one you didn’t pay for.

    Yes it’s really great of you to flag up security flaws, that is the COMMUNITY thing to do, and thanks for doing that.

    Finally I think you should seriously consider some anger management course, it’s not good for your blood pressure 🙂

    Schmoo, presume you mean this forum https://bbpress.org/forums/ – try coming here direct rather than via bbpress.org and let us know if that makes a difference.

    Normally bbpress looks for it’s forum under the website followed by “forums”, but you’ve got that link allocated to Mybb software.

    I presume your forums base in settings is set to “iiforums” ?

    Yes, that’s probably the next step – swapping your theme to one of the defaults eg twentytwelve and see if it comes up. If so then it’s a theme issue, suspect your theme is unloading sidebars at the wrong time – this should be correctable, but you need to prove it’s the issue first !

    In your widgets toolbar you should see a “bbpress sidebar” – drop your items theer and they’ll appear in the sidebar on forum pages.

    Strange works well on mine wordpress 3.5.1 bbpress 2.3.2 theme twentyten

    breadcrumbs work fine and get you back to the page

    Did you call the page forums plural?

    can you provide your url

    @robin-w

    yes you are missing something – there should be an update profile tab at the bottom of the page.

    I presume you’re in a url looking like

    http://www.xxx.com/forums/users/username/edit/

    where username is the user’s name?

    Same happens to me – when I enter the forums, I just hover over the anonymous, then select log in and log in again. It then tells me that I’m already logged in, but then lets me post.

    Great method Schmoo!

    You can also create a page called “forums”, put your text there, and then add the shortcode

    [bbp-forum-indexx]

    but with only one x – sorry but even with code ticks the forum interprets this code, so cannot put it in exactly!

    by the way the page doesn’t appear as an edit option in the toolbar, so you have to edit it via the dashboard, but that is how I achieved it.

    I find most of this is straight forward ONCE you know the answer, but like you I can spend hours trying to get something to work !

    @robin-w

    Have had a bit of a play.

    Answer turns out to be very easy !

    In line 799 just change

    'type' => 'both'
    to

    'type' => 'avatar'

    Then just the avatar displays.

    By the by change it to

    'type' => 'name' and guess what, just the name displays!

    As said earlier make a note of what you have changed, as later upgrades will change this back.

    Sorry was being thick and quoted the code for the login display.

    Having had a look at the widget, there is an option in the recent topics widget itself to hide author ie when you add the widget to a sidebar, you get options for no. posts to show, show author, show date etc. – does that not work?

    That links to line 798 in the widgets php, so there would be you next step.

    Think you just need to comment out line 143 of widgets.php
    <h4><?php bbp_user_profile_link( bbp_get_current_user_id() ); ?></h4>

    Then the avatar will show but not the name.

    Line 142 has the avatar code, so you can just use that where you need to put the avatar.

    Many helpers on the forums only look for questions with no replies – they presume that ones with replies have been answered. I don’t know the answer to this one, but if you don’t get a response in a day or so, I’d re-post it afresh, and Chengdu just hold off adding to it !

    Hope you get help

    Yes

    Just set up the new area, and add the bbpress plugin

    Then export (dashboard>tools>export) from the old area – you’ll want post and forums as minimum, but you can take everything if you want.

    Then import into the new area. You will need to install the wordpress importer, but that is part of the process, so just say yes when prompted.

    Part of the import process will ask you who to assign imported posts to, and you can decide to allocate them to admin, an existing user in the new site or (if you exported everything) to the imported users.

    Kate t

    Thanks for posting this, saved me hours of trying to work out which file I needed to change, and how to code it.

    For those that want to add fields to their users, as well as Kate’s Meta pro, the following link shows how to add and use custom field, and the combination of these two made it quick and simple

    Adding and using custom user profile fields

    I also added the ability within BBpress for the user to change their location within the built in profile amend by changing Form-user-edit.php (located in web/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress

    The following was added after line 125
    <?php bbp_edit_user_display_name(); ?>
    BBpress version 2.3.1

    <div>
    			<label for="town"><?php _e( 'Town', 'bbpress' ); ?></label>
    			<input type="text" name="town" id="town" value="<?php echo esc_attr( bbp_get_displayed_user_field( 'town' ) ); ?>" class="regular-text" tabindex="<?php bbp_tab_index(); ?>" />
    		</div>

    I used “Bbpress wp-tweaks” it creates a bbpress sidebar that is used on the forum pages.
    You could also use “Widget logic” – allows conditional statements on widgets to produce page or category specific sidebar content. Using the logic “is_bbpress()” allows sidebar specific content. “!is_bbpress()” excludes widgets from forum pages.

    From the sticky on the upgrade put the following into your CSS

    `.bbp-search-form {
    display:none !important;
    }`
