    They seem to be pingback spam…

    @steveatty

    What I’m saying is that the spam is showing up in the main blog spam list as being against topics, but bbPress is set to only allow registered users to post and the users posting spam are guests and the spam type is shown as “comment”.

    I don’t have any today yet – but I did turn off another plugin yesterday morning

    Sorry, I lost sight of this… there’s another bug – you use

    get_option( 'rss_language' );

    which no longer works…. it needs to be changed to:

    bloginfo_rss( 'language' )

    I can raise another trac ticket when I get home if you like

    Found it… somehow, and I’m not sure how this happened the default role for users had been set to “Administrator”, either that or I’d not changed it. But “Anyone can registered” wasn’t set so it wasn’t important (I’m using a FB connect plugin to do registration). However I de-activated bbpress and then re-activated it and it sets up forum participant to pick up the default role from the blog… so every user (all 233+) of them became site admins and thus Key Masters. So I de-activated, set the default role to the lowest and then re-enabled it.

    I set the default role down to subscriber, deactivated and re-activated bbpress and now everyone is just a member on the forums.

    It might be worth putting a check in so that it pops up a warning if the default level is an an admin level account.

    In the main user database all the users are shown as Forum Participant. Does that mean that they are not key masters and that its a display error (I’ve not been able to find any way of setting things at a bbpress level).

    I might have – in fact I have a lot more than I’m sure I’ve ever set….

    Unsticking them seems to have solved the problem,

    What I found was that going to a specific Post was OK but the further and further up the Forum tree I went the slower it got until eventually it dies with:

    [13-May-2012 14:13:33] PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 90 seconds exceeded in /webstuff/wordbooker/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/bbp-includes/bbp-forum-template.php on line 554

    I actually raised this over on the main WP forums back in May because here always seems to be over-run with spam but I guess no-one checks over there.

    If you force a re-count then it basically messes everything up…

    I missed the recount – hiding it under the general WordPress Tools menu caught me out;-).

    I’ve run it and it seems to be OK now when it comes to dates.

    @steveatty

    And its lost all the posting timestamps…. arrgg!!

    This is importing from BBpress standalone.

    http://wordbooker.tty.org.uk/supportforums/forum/wordbooker-general-chat-and-news/news-2/

    shows the mess.

    Oh and it would be great if you could chose which sort of users to bring over – like only bring over Active users rather than all of them.

    The first post in each thread when its converted seems to be displayed as raw html for some reason.

    I’ve got it working – I messaged him but then went in and dug round the code and its now working with the new V3 PHP API from FB.

    Not sure what to do, but I’m happy to zip it up and post a link to it.

    If I rename bb-cron.php the problem goes away. So what jobs does bb-cron normally run?

    @steveatty

    Its not natural traffic – it just seems to be bbpress doing repeated head/gets on links that are pasted in posts – it also seems to do it to links out to other sites – well it used 195MB of bandwidth against another server in less than 1 day.

    And I’ve found it does do it if the file is in the same domain – just missed it in the access logs.

    Checking my server access logs the only odd thing I see is

    So why does that bb-cron call at 07:46 appear after the 08:00 activies. What does bb-cron do?

    I turned off every single plugin and it still does it – so its something in the core of bbpress 1.1


    Steve

    @steveatty

    Turned off all the plug-ins apart from support forums and it still did it. It doesn’t do it if the zip file is located on the same domain as the BBPress install.

    Only 2 spams this month according to Akismet

    Just did a grep of the access log round one of those times and there is NOTHING going on

    I just realised I was on 1.0.3 not 1.1 so I’ve upgraded and will see if it fixes the problem
