Yup, I am still linking the standalone to our site until we can (hopefully) get the plugin up to par.
Anointed – your screenshot is prompting me to DL Screensnapr, and the DL link isn’t currently working..
I’m also getting all kinds of page errors with the current set up (like here: http://www.gogo-gringo.com/forum/rants-amp-raves/recommendations), and it jumps back and forth btwn my old standalone (…/forum) and my new forums (…/forums). I think I’m in over my head on this one. ?
Anointed, thanks for the response. I’m not seeing a DL link at the bottom of the page you sent me though ? (I’m not super dense, I swear )Cheers.In reply to: Convert 1.0.3 Standalone to 2.0.2 Plugin
I am also trying to converted an integrated standalone to the plugin. For some reason, some but not all of our posts carried over to the plugin. I’m not sure about the users, but I think if your bbpress standalone and WP were all integrated before, the users should already be in your WP database, right? I’m just having problems with getting the posts and topics over. I’ve tired the bbpress converter plugin, and tried deleting the plugin and starting over, but nothing seems to help.In reply to: Some, but not all Posts from Standalone to Plugin
I’m definitely not up to par (re: computer/coding knowledge) with everyone that has been posting on this thread, but I’m not a total idiot, either… in other words, I can follow directions, but be gentle on me!
I don’t know if one of these plugins mentioned might be the fix for my problem. From what I can tell, I am having minor problems since downloading the bbPress plugin (I have version 2.0.2 currently installed) but previously had a WP-bbPress forum integration set-up. It wasn’t fully integrated into my theme, but I at least had seamless logins, etc. You can see from my homepage here: http://www.gogo-gringo.com/ and my forums here: http://gogo-gringo.com/forum/.
However, now when I try to access or edit forum topics and replies from the WP dashboard, it doesn’t affect anything at http://www.gogo-gringo.com/forum. Much to my dismay, I’ve realized there is also now a http://www.gogo-gringo.com/forums which pulls up within my site, but looks pretty awful. I will have to try and edit the style to get it to work.
I would rather have the latter, more integrated one(www.gogo-gringo.com/forums/) working and looking stylish.. and get rid of the older one (gogo-gringo.com/forum/) but of course keep all my users and posts.
Could someone point me in the right direction? Thanks a million in advance!In reply to: bbpress version 2 plugin
I can’t seem to get any of the bbPress widgets to work properly… the shortcodes function, but they aren’t formatted or anything, so if I try to use them in a text widget I just end up with messy text that is about 100 lines long, and get a bunch of Page Not Found errors when clicking on it.
I think I am having trouble because I originally installed bbPress separately, then added the plugin when it became available. I’m not sure what to do.. it is all a big mess
Also, interestingly, when I view our replies and posts from the WP dashboard, they show up with our theme’s css.
I tried adding all the *single, *archive, and *page files to my theme’s folder, then added add_theme_support( ‘bbpress’ ); to the top of my theme’s function.php file. All that did was strip my website of its background, menu, and a few other features– and the forum stayed exactly as is.
(I should note that while I’ve learned to do some basic CSS and HTML coding over the last few months, I am no where near being any sort of expert).
