    ‘Could you please tell me the same as above check box for the bbpress registration form.’

    I Haven’t used gravity forms myself, but if you are using the bbpress login widget , then you should be able to add a page called say “register” and then call the gravity form from within that, and add that url to the widget.

    Don’t know why it happened. try Dashoboard>tools>forums.reapir forums and run one at a time to see of this fixes your links.

    It could also be worth checkint that you haven’t got a plugin or theme issue, although neither would cause a plugin to disappear.

    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.

    @adenslayer

    This seems to be a known issue with this plugin viz :

    I see you’ve also posted to the plugin site, so hopefully the plugin author will come back to you.

    Can only suggest you try the following to see if they are causing issues

    ok, you could try just using a separate page for bbpress.

    Create a file called bbpress.php in your theme folder

    Add the following code to the bbpress.php file

    <?php
    /**
     * bbPress wrapper template.
     */
    
    get_header(); ?>
    
    <?php while( have_posts() ): the_post(); ?>
    
    	<?php the_content(); ?>
    
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
    
    

    If you need a sidebar add

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    

    before the footer line

    See whether that works for you.

    On issue no. 1

    the &#039 is the code for a quote mark ie the ones either side of this ‘word’

    so something is displaying rather than interpreting this.

    Not sure why, could ebe a plugin or theme issue

    try

    Check other plugins

    come back and let us know if that helped.

    On your issue no. 2, bbp-foums class does the overall border

    	.bbp-header, .bbp-forums   {
    	
    border-top: 1px solid #EEEEEE !important;
    border-top-left-radius: 10px !important;
    border-top-right-radius: 10px !important;
    }

    fixed it on my test site

    “deactivating all plugins tangentially related to bbpress ”

    The plugin conflict has nothing to do with whether the plugin is related to bbpress – any plugin can cause a conflict.

    This is because conflicts are often with common variable names such as $user, where one plugin may set it to be x and the other uses it expecting it to be y.

    Disable all plugins, and switching to a default theme proves that both wordpress and bbpress are correctly installed (ie not corrupt). From there you can add back themes and plugin to work out which is causing the conflict.

    “There are a number of related threads about this issue on the forum but none have any real solutions provided.”

    There are tens of thousands of plugins, and thousands of themes, and conflicts will occur with combinations of these. There is not one common problem here, the symptoms are the same but the causes many, so “real” solutions are individual. In the last few weeks solutions for many including a caching plugin and a theme have been posted.

    Your problem is individual to you.

    Try again with getting to a root cause by disabling all plugins and going to default theme, and come back if you still have a problem, we’ll try to help you to resolve this.

    you can add a modal login which looks prettier than the wp-admin

    viz

    Layout and functionality – Examples you can use

    Ok, I see you also posted on their support page, which was going to be my next suggestion.

    Since your code is on a local server, I obviously can’t take a look.

    So now let’s try.

    Create a file called bbpress.php in your theme folder

    Add the following code to the bbpress.php file

    <?php
    /**
     * bbPress wrapper template.
     */
    
    get_header(); ?>
    
    <?php while( have_posts() ): the_post(); ?>
    
    	<?php the_content(); ?>
    
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
    
    

    If you need a sidebar add

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    

    before the footer line

    See whether that works for you.

    There is no reason that you shouldn’t use the main theme APART from the danger that on an update of the theme you’ll lose the changes. But as you’ve done changes, you have that risk now with your existing changes, and hopefully have a note of them ! As long as you keep a copy of the functions file, you should be able to just add this code to the theme’s functions file at the end.

    If that doesn’t work, come back, and I’ll cut the code into a plugin for you, but would prefer not to do that if I don’t have to (time!)

    ok, I think you might need to change a parameter.

    Try the following filter in your functions file

    function bbp_increase-forums-per-page( $args = array() ) {
    $args['posts_per_page'] = get_option( '_bbp_forums_per_page', 150 );
        return $args;
    }
    add_filter( 'bbp_before_has_forums_parse_args', 'bbp_increase-forums-per-page' ); 

    Come back and let us know if that worked.

    ok, thanks.

    No I don’t think that is possible with bbPress.

    tempapte-tags.php was renamed to just template.php

    bbpress/includes/forums/template.php

    However you should be able to use the following filter in your functions file, just amend the 100 to whatever you want
    function bbp_increase-forum-per-page( $args = array() ) {
    $args[‘posts_per_page’] = get_option( ‘_bbp_forums_per_page’, 100 );
    return $args;
    }
    add_filter( ‘bbp_before_has_forums_parse_args’, ‘bbp_increase-forum-per-page’ );

    @joceh78 – could you post the sql command you eventually used, so that someone searching this forum at a later date can see exactly how you fixed it.

    Thanks

    try typing your url followed by wp-login.php into the address bar

    eg

    http://www.mysite.com/wp-login.php

    and then login and then logout

    Then try the widget again

    I have had similar issues on occasions, and to me it seems like wp-login gets itself confused as to whether you’re logged in or not. This seems to reset it.

    Come back if that doesn’t work

    ‘I’m using the newest bbPress plugin as well as the updated version of WP 3.8.1. My site is novasev.com. You can see this issue by navigating to the Requests under Rainmeter forum and then the forum under NovaSev.com Administration.’

    sorry couldn’t follow this as I can’t see how to get to the rainmeter forum from the menu.

    Can you post two specific links and more detail on what is different in each

    ok, but where does the prefix come from? Otherwise surey you just type it in the topic title?

    I suspect that this would not be easy to do automatically, but please give me more details.
