  • Like mdawaffe said above: Probably not. There’s a lot of custom code talking to two different servers via http, cron jobs, svn actions and a dozen other things.

    /Me guesses there is TOO much stuff going on behind the scenes, to even want to consider making this a “plugin” per se.. =/

    Or some page we can put on our site, but that pulls al the plugins from this site for display?

    There might be a way, I’m just not sure off hand which way would be the “best” though.. Maybe one of the devs, or someone else could help you better. ;) :) Either way, good luck with this! ;) :)


    Nevermind, much props goes to boyevul on GoogleTalk! ;) ;D The login codes were placed in the theme’s header2.php file, directly after an “onclick” action, which was the culprit.

    So this:

    <div id=”header” onclick=”location.href='<?php bloginfo(‘url’); ?>’;” style=”cursor: pointer;”>

    <h1><a href="<?php bb_option('uri'); ?>"><?php bb_option('name'); ?></a></h1>

    <?php login_form(); ?>

    <div id=”memlist”><a href="<?php bb_memberlist_link(); ?>">Member List</a></div>


    Was changed to this:

    <div id=”header”>

    <h1><a href="<?php bb_option('uri'); ?>"><?php bb_option('name'); ?></a></h1>

    <?php login_form(); ?>

    <div id=”memlist”><a href="<?php bb_memberlist_link(); ?>">Member List</a></div>


    And all was peachy! I didn’t however upload the latest files of bbPress to the online copy, and I didn’t upload the new changes I just made here either.. I will then .. ;) :D

    Either way, problem is solved!


    Nice!! I’ll try that out then.. Thanks for updating it, and sharing it! ;) :)


    I agree.. I’d like to see this too!

    +1 for a plugin.. ;) :)


    Alright, I uploaded a copy of my actual Localhost now, to my domain name: http://localhost.spencerp.net/forum/

    You can see what I’m talking about there, well hopefully lol! =P Also, please keep in mind, things might be broke, still screwy.. just register if you can, only for testing purposes.. ;) :)

    Also, this isn’t even near done yet lmao. I got a lot of nice things in mind for this baby.. LoL! =P


    In reply to: users’ email address

    Yeah, I’m not sure why, but while I was talking with GaMerZ on Live Messenger, he said my blog spit out an error:

    failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/blah/username/public_html/wp-content/plugins/

    bbpress-integration.php on line 28

    I had opened that file, and that was the line .. =/ Not really sure what, or why it was doing that, but.. after I fixed that line.. GaMerZ said there wasn’t anymore errors displaying..


    /I never seen that error on my site, but some how he did lol.. =/

    In reply to: users’ email address

    Also, please note! If you’re running WordPress version 2.1 alphaX, or now it’s in Beta state, and you have the bbPress Integration plugin going on it..

    find this line:

    require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/registration-functions.php’ );

    change it to this:

    require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/registration.php’ );

    (The devs renamed the file in the includes/ directory for 2.1)

    This is probably the main cause of these errors.. Also, we’d better make sure of any other bbPress plugins using that first call to the /registration-functions.php file.. and change accordingly..

    This is for 2.1 alphaX, and now 2.1-betaX users only!!


    In reply to: users’ email address

    For me, as well as Trent because we are WP and BB integrated.. for some reason in the USERS section of the WP-ADMIN panel, for the user’s email addy, it displays “1” as well..

    Any thoughts on this? Any possible way to fix this.. or will the fix that you provide above work, Trent? Meaning, once we’d do that fix you gave above, the user’s email addy will then show in the WP-ADMIN => USERS email addy box…

    Either way though, this CORE HACK would have to be applied after each bbPress upgrade though!.. (Unless of course, there were no changes to that file between releases).. I’ve been getting the SVN commits lately, and I think it was one that was “changed”.. so.. please keep this mind too!


    For the #5 one, here’s that thread.. Might be more too.. I just did a google search quick




    I’d also like to see #4 implemented into bbPress, but I think we’ll have to at least get the “Forum Categories” plugin out first, then it might be a little easier for the subforums deal..

    For #5, I thought I seen a post about this some where, where “they” were using the WP editor, with bbPress.. I could be wrong though.. =/ All the other numbered requests sound good to me as well.. ;) :) We’ll just have to see what comes out next lol..

    [Mentally visualizes Josh, and the other plugin author’s rubbing their hands together.. and getting busy.. hahaha.. ]


    In reply to: UTW Error

    Nice! Travel, thanks for this! Do you suppose anything in the database will need updated for this “fix”, or .. ? Just wondering.. =P


    In reply to: Plugin – bbPortal

    Null, I’m not sure what to say, I haven’t downloaded this, and tested this yet.. (I’m not sure how many others did either lol, because there are no replies in here, but your own.. =/ )

    How many downloads have you had for this bbPortal so far? Maybe after some time here (after Holiday deal is over), and people get back into swing of things.. they’d start helping you figure this out..

    I could download it, and try it locally once.. but, I myself is just swamped with stuff too.. :( I’ll see what I can do though. ;) :)


    UPDATE: I just wanted to fill everyone in on what I have just done..

    1) I downloaded and installed the Themed Login and Registration plugin for WordPress.

    2) Upload it, then activate it as normal.

    OR, If you are running WordPress version 2.1-alpha3.. Before uploading and installing this plugin, open the themed-logreg.php file..

    Find this line:

    require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/registration-functions.php’);

    Change it to this:

    require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/registration.php’);

    This is because in the 2.1-apha3 version, they just renamed some of the files in the wp-includes/ directory..

    3) I made a page called: Where To

    Since I have pretty permalinks on, the page’s location is here for example: domain.net/where-to/

    In the Where To page’s Write Window, I added the following text/urls for example:

    “If you are seeing this page, you now have the ability to access the following places with your username and password.

    The <a href="wiki.yourdomain.net/">Codex</a>.

    The <a href="yourdomain.net/forums/">Forums</a>.

    The <a href="yourdomain.net/wp-admin/">Site Admin</a>. “

    4) Under Plugins => Login Register Options =>

    A) Under the: Uninstallation Options => I put check in box for: Toggle Complete Uninstall:

    B) Under the: Redirect After Login: => I changed wp-admin/ to where-to/

    If you have the normal setup for the permalinks, (for me on localhost this worked): /?page_id=11

    Of course, change the actual number to your own..

    C) Under the: Redirect After Logout: => I left this one at: wp-login.php

    D) If you are using any other theme, then the “Gathering” theme, you might want to skip this section. And follow the directions for it, according to your theme’s layout!

    Unless your sidebar call is like this.. in the index.php file:

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    Still in the Login Register Options, I left everything alone from there down TILL the part for the “Template Header Files: section..

    D-1) Since I’m using the “Gathering” theme, the call for the sidebar, in the theme files is right after the header call.

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    D-2) In the Template Header Files: window, I made it like this:



    D-3) In the Template After Header HTML: window, I made it like this:

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <div id="maincontent">

    D-4) In the Template Before Footer HTML: window, I made it like this:

    <?php endif; ?>


    <!--index.php end-->

    <!--include footer-->

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    D-5) In the Template Footer Files: window, I made it like this: footer.php

    E) Scroll down to the User Email Template: window. Since he uses variables for his stuff.. here is what I used for mine, and it works because I got the email after doing a test sign up. :D

    Username: ##username##

    Password: ##password##

    You now have the ability to access any of the following locations with your username and password.

    The Site Admin


    The Forums


    The Codex


    Please note: Of course… change the The Codex and Forums urls to whatever your’s is.. example: ##siteurl##/my-forums-folder-name/

    And for Codex/Wiki: http://yourdomain.net/yourwiki or whatever..

    Then I click the Update Options button.. :D ;)

    F) In my Theme’s CSS File, I added the following CSS Style references:

    #login {margin:0 auto 0 auto;width:250px;}

    #login ul {margin:0;padding:0;}

    #login ul li {display:inline;margin-left:10px;}

    Everything seems to be working just fine! I hope this helps others..



    After logging in, you should be taken to this page then:


    Which of course.. can still be seen by everyone, either way. (But it’s not really made public either, because I don’t have the page itself, listed in the header nav bar, and sidebar nav section.)

    However.. it’s not going to do much good to them, because if they aren’t registered and stuff.. they can’t access my blog’s wp-admin, forums or codex.. lmao!

    Anyway, I just did TWO test signups.. and was able to login to my Codex, Forums, and the Blog’s wp-admin control panel.. whee!!


    You’re welcome Nate. ;):) And hopefully soon here.. I’ll have my wiki ready, and going the way I want it lol. Then, once I’m done, or as I go along.. I’ll write up what I did ..

    Hopefully someone else in need of same thing, latter down the road.. finds this post useful and I hope it helps them.. ;):)


    Nice! I’ll apply this then, once done eating my burger here.. ;):) If I remember right, someone did post about that over in the WP.org mailing list(s) can’t remember which one though.. Or, maybe it was the bbdev list.. I better check ..

    But I think Michael Adams seen it, and was going to apply a “Fix” after holidays.. when the next release of bbPress comes out.. (after holidays) I’m assuming.. either way.. thanks for the “fix”.. :) :D


    /Here’s the thread I meant to post it in lmao..

    And I’m trying to get someone to make up a plugin, or what-not for “forum categories” .. lol


    Josh said he’ll probably get on “this” then, just with the Holidays here, and his busy life.. there is no rush. ;):) I trust his awesome plugin’s and work..

    Also, as time goes on, and more plugins start coming around, the DEVS will most likely implement them into the core then.. We just need some patience.. ;) :) As it is though, I still can’t fathom how much is already available (plugin wise) for bbPress.. geesh!


    Nevermind! Here’s what I ended up doing..

    1) Edited the MediaWiki:Sidebar by adding in my own custom Register link, pointing to the Blog’s register page.

    2) Edited some of the MediaWiki: (Logouttext, Createaccount, some Login”whatever files”, Nologin, Notloggedin, and maybe a few others) files – Removing all the “create account” references. So the “Login / Create Account” link was chopped down to just “Login”.. same goes for the one found on the actual login page.. (Well.. as far as I know I got all them “Create Account” references lmao!

    3) Replaced those “create account” words/calls with custom text saying “Please click on the register link in the sidebar. Once you’ve created an account through my blog’s register page, you’ll get an email with the details. Once registered, your username and password will allow you to login on the Codex.”

    4) Also, had added that little “hack” to hide the [Edit] link on the pages and stuff, if not logged in.. I had done this before even doing the above.. so.. as far as I know, I’m good to go for the Codex.. :)

    I’ll just have customize the email that comes from the blog after they register there, and the same for the forums.. ;) I guess this is all I need, right people? If there’s more.. please tell me.. whee!


    /Next on the “To-Do” list is implementing my blog’s theme around the Codex.. Wish me luck! …whee!

    Hahahaha.. Yeah, that wouldn’t be good! “We” wouldn’t want that now, lol. =P Fiancee? Congrats on that! ;) :)


    [blushing].. Hehe.. I guess I could always come over there then.. LOL Hahaha.. Nah, just kidding, I don’t think your man would like that too much lol! =P Anyway, I’m glad to hear that fixed it.. :) ;)


    Here, try this once..


    Copy/Paste into the original one of course.. into the forum’s root directory.. like normal. :);) That *should* work lol.. And it’s no problem.. I love helping people.. ;) :)


    /If that don’t work either.. I’m going to scream lmao. I’m trying to get Josh on GoogleTalk, but he must be busy or something.. sigh. Hopefully he comes in here soon lol..

    Ah dang, I remember which one it was now.. it was the message.php file.. I’ll upload a copy of mine once.. and report back here..


    Hahaha.. you’re welcome. ;) :) Come to think of it, I might even go back to just using the original plugin lmao.. I dunno though.. I kinda liked the idea of that though.. to help remind people that my forum’s are there LOL!

    Being that my forums are so small, it’s kind of a nice thing, however.. if and when it gets a little bigger, it might not be a good thing.. I’ll think about it though… I just got tons of other things to do sigh..


    /Thanks for registering on my forums by the way.. ;) :)

    Try this version of the “main plugin” file once..


    Just copy the codes from that one, and place it in the original bb-privatemessage.php and reupload it into the my-plugins directory again..

    That *should* work.. If not, Josh(ardentfrost) and I will look into what we’ve done before, to get rid of that error. ;):)


    /I think we had to “hard-code” the calls to the users table for the database..? If I’m not mistaken.. Josh?

    Nicki, I’m using another version of this plugin.. I had asked Thomas earlier in the thread, for one that sends one out no matter what, or who’s thread gets replied too. ;):)


    So, by default.. his original plugin won’t do that. ;) :)
