ok, do you have a child theme with css in it you can alter?In reply to: How to make bbPress use the same theme as WordPress?
There were some instructions here
But they are out of date
Your forum link didn’t work, but if you post again, I’ll take a quick look to see if teher are any quick and easy changes you could make
Can you post a link to your site and I’ll take a look for youIn reply to: Users cannot see first post in each topic
All first posts on an area are “topics” and the subsequent ones are replies, so it is correctly doing that.
These are called custom post types
User levels (eg admin) would/should not affect this
I suspect the issue is in your memberships plugin – even though you’ve tried. Do you anywhere define what is shown to users? if you can find the word “replies” anywhere then look for adding “topics” as well.
I’d suggest that you add a new user (yourself but under another name) and then play with the settings for both wordpress and bbpress. I presume you are aware that when you have created a user, if you go back into edit then you’ll see a bbpress role for each user. So play with both of those and see what displays topics and replies and then come back.In reply to: change forum sidebar
ok, I’d try installing WP-tweaks again.
You should see a bbpress sidebar in the dashboard
and it will be on the bottom right.
Populate that with some widgets and it should appear.
If not come back and I’ll give you another solution
Hmmm…not sure where to go next.
The counting function is in
that it is an option makes me think that it is switchable, but no idea where it would be turned off and on, or indeed why !
If you’ve not got your main site on buddypress, might be worth deactivating it to see if that fixes it.
Otherwise you could post on the buddypress support site
Please come back if you get any further !In reply to: BBPress – Post Count
The issue is that in loop-single-reply the variable $user_id is not set. I’ve just written a plugin for this, which should work – it does on my site, but I am trying to work out why it doesn’t on another who also has buddypress.
You installing it would help me determine if it is me !
Download to your pc, and then upload to the plugins
or crack it open to see what code I used
ok, you would easily see it in usermeta table if it was there.
would suggest that is why it is coming up a 0
can you try
and then the tab ‘repair forums’
and then click “count topics for each user” and “count replies for each user”
and see if that fixes it
what versions of wordpress and bbpress are you on
do you have buddypress also installed?In reply to: page templates
Don’t know if this helps youIn reply to: Visual Editor
presume you mean this is the piece of code you’ve tried?
have you tried this plugin
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.
do you have phpmyadmin access to the database?
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
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 somewhereIn reply to: phpbb import hanging?
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 themIn reply to: How do I disable the avatar feature on my forums?
and unclick “show avatars” near the bottom of the pageIn reply to: Colors used in Topic list very hard to see
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
that you could crack the code of
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?
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
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
