As I said; it’s theme specific. Switching to one of the TwentyX themes makes everything function as expected.
The email account associated with your WordPress account determines which Gravatar is loaded.
bbPress/WordPress automatically uses Gravatars. It’s built into the discussion settings.
bbPress plugins work identically to WordPress’
Everything you’ve listed is entirely possible with bbPress, but as several of those features aren’t yet available for bbPress. You will need to do a lot of custom work, especially if you want to get a private messaging system working. That work will, obviously, require some coding expertise.
I think youre right that the first is a bug. Ive been able to reproduce.
The second issue doesnt seem very bug-like though. Could you share the code that is calling the add_user function? As I said before, I suspect you’re not doing any validation on the situations ion which the function is allowed to run.
The ‘participant’ role is one of WordPress’ user roles. bbPress assigns the bbp_participant role, which makes me think there is something else going on here. Are you running any other plugins or custom functions?
Perhaps you could use something like Multisite User Management to set ‘no role’ as the default across the network. You might need to make some code changes to it though.
What does your add_user() function look like? It sounds like this could be resolved by wrapping your code in a !is_admin() conditional.
Here’s a solution I came up with a few months back. http://shanegowland.com/wp/2012/wordpress-plugin-multisite-bbpress-forum-participants/In reply to: Use BBpress in message board style
Create a page and use the `[bbp-topic-index]` shortcode to display all topics from across every forum.
Take a look at Widget Logic or Sidebars. These are plugins specifically made for adding different sidebars/widgets to specific pages. Manipulating widget areas is outside the scope of bbPress and is something you will need to implement yourself.
This is a theme specific issue. bbPress could do more to accomodate different primary content area widths, but it’s quite easy to fix with a bit of CSS.
You can create page templates for specific bbPress functions/pages by creating a /bbpress/ folder in your theme directory and copying your edited bbPress template files into it. It’s briefly mentioned in the codex, but I concede the documentation could be improved significantly.
Further I expect from bbpress authors to work on these issues and release a fixed version.
bbPress is an open source project (largely) developed by volunteers. To expect anything reeks of self-entitlement. The best way to make these things happen is to ask for help on specific issues, fix those issues and then contribute your fixes to the project.In reply to: New to bbPress, confused on theming? Please help!
Custom bbPress functions can go into your functions.php file, but I prefer to create a custom functions plugin.In reply to: Disable bbpress on specific page
As far as I know, there is no way to disable plugins on a page-by-page basis.
May I ask why you’re running two plugins that basically have identical functionality?In reply to: How To Install
bbPress’ profile pages are simply a front-end interface for the profile settings available through the WordPress dashboard.
The best approach would be to see how your external membership system is disabling this functionality in WordPress, then reproduce that for bbPress.
I think giving the user an edit profile panel in a discussion forum plugin is a bad approach
To be honest, this seems like pretty core functionality for any discussion board software. I’ve personally never encountered a forum that didn’t allow me to make changes to my profile or settings.
Any reasonably tech savvy user will circumvent this by directly typing the URL. Of course, while I’m certain this is a bad approach, have no alternative to offer.In reply to: Attaching BBpress to WordPress Page
You can forums to existing WordPress pages using bbPress various shortcodes.In reply to: Removing the Status Bar in Forums
You can hide it with CSS. Try adding the following code to your theme’s style.css file.

Is nobody seing this or..=
Yup, seeing it. But your post it pretty clear and informative, so there really isn’t much to add.
You should look into upgrading to bbPress 2.0, that way proven antispam WordPress plugins (Akismet, Bad Behaviour et al) can provide what’s clearly much-needed protection to your community.In reply to: Recent Topics Widget
What specifically are you trying to change about the widget? It’s usually not a good idea to directly edit bbPress files, as your changes will be lost next time you update bbPress for security fixes or feature improvements.
99% of the time, there’s a simple way of changing things without hacking plugin files.In reply to: bbp-single-forum with topic limit?
bbPress uses WordPress’ database to store its data. Specifically, the wp-posts table.In reply to: Simple classifieds forum
bbPress does exactly what you’re describing.
It works best if you make each of your classifieds categories as top-level forums.In reply to: standalone bbpress v1.02 upgrade
bbPress 2.0 is a WordPress plugin, which means you must have WordPress installed to use it.In reply to: Archive legacy bbpress.org posts
I can understand why you’ve chosen to preserve the old posts, but I agree with the OP that it makes finding relevant help with issues extremely difficult.
Perhaps a happy compromise could be reached, such as an option that makes the forum search exclude results dated prior to the release of 2.0. Or even a “The information in this thread may be outdated” warning message to reduce the confusion of new users.In reply to: Upgrading from old stand-alone, keep users separate?
