My bb-includes/backpress/functions.core.php begins with :
// Last sync [WP9916]
wordpressfan, have you added the line above inside the <?php … ?> tag ? If you have added it at the beginning or the end of the file, then it’s normal if you get header related warnings .
About the “backpress_get_option” error : I don’t even know if it’s the best way, but you can edit functions.core.php and add this :
It works for me
Okay no responses, that means I have to change something ( the header maybe ? ) .
I’ll host a demo forum in a few days .
I’ve never used trac, or any CVS/SVN tool ( okay I’ve used them a few times to build a customized kernel, but that’s all ), so I’m really lost, can someone do it for me please ? Thanks !
The typical forum layout comes from catering to new visitors that want descriptions of each category, and from repeat visitors wanting to check if there are updates to that category without having to click into that category.
Of course, my goal is to break that “tradition” and create something newer and, as you said, wik-ish .
Tags also are really great for moderating topics, you can immediately find duplicate topics and close them .
The forum will be managed BY the community, so using tags for navigation and giving the users the right to create them freely will not be a problem ( tags spam ? the spammer will get a kick in the ass ), and the moderation team will do its best to prevent tags abuse.
If tags could visually signify if there are new posts for the visitor inside of them, maybe with emphasis or italics or reordering them to the front of the cloud, that would be a neat idea.
Good idea, noted .
Well, thank you all for your responses, I’ll try to finish the template then I’ll invite users to test it and give me their feedbacks .
I didn’t see someone else using tag navigation on his forum, so maybe I will be the first to use it ( or to loose )
It is not finished yet ( I must review the font colors, the background which doesn’t match the header etc… ), but here’s a screen-shot : http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/8343/forumscreenshotgr1.png .
BTW, tags will not be seen by search engines like duplicate content ?
I don’t have finished the template ( I only made the design in The GIMP ), so I don’t have it online now ( because I need more ideas, and this is one of those ) .
I want only know if users prefer to navigate with the classical categories or with the bbpress tags ( I think it offers a more attractive way, an infinite number of “categories”, and users are free to create their own ) .
