In reply to: How to make a forum Sticky in the main Forum Page
If you want to put some rules at the top of your main forum display page, then create a normal wordpress page, type your rules in the content and then at the end put
Put that page in your menu, and it will show the rules before showing the forum listIn reply to: Splitting Forum into Sections?
WPD – This is quite simple.
When you create a forum, on right hand side under forum attributes there is an option to make it a forum OR a category. Create it as a category, and then add forums to this category by making the forums and then making the parents of these the category forum you have just created.In reply to: sidebars not functioning on forums
Have you got a page associated with the forum?
If not try creating a page called “forums” with a sidebar.
This should work.
If not try adding the following shortcode to that page
You can also use a plugin called bbPress WP tweaks to add a specific forum sidebarIn reply to: Keep asking login while already loged in
Suggest you disable all your plugins and try again. If this works -it is a plugin conflict, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the problem.
Otherwise come back and we’ll help further
the awpc plugin needs updating go to their support forum and search for bpress
yes, if you google ‘Wishlist member & bbpress’ – there’s a whole bunch of posts
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 !
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
If you want the widget to appear on other pages, but not obn the forum page type
so you login widget would have the logic
and appear only on forum pages
If you didn’t want search on the forum page, you’d put
on that widget and it will not appear
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 documentationIn reply to: Password Protect Each Forum
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
Go into 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 knowIn reply to: Hide Sidebar
you can use ‘widget logic’ plugin to control what is shown in sidebars. for bbpress the logic is
is_bbpress()to display and
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 detailsIn reply to: layout changes
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
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 ?
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
at the bottom, including the square brackets.
