I was able to get this to work using a custom page.php file, some sql to pull the data and a truncate function to minimize the number of characters replied. You can view the result of my work at: dev [dot] silverdoctors [dot] com/topic/testing-topic/.
The final thing that would be really cool is to have the ability to have a jquery loader that when a button is clicked, would load, lets say, 10 more recent site-wide forum replies. Or even better yet, a jquery function designed to automatically load new content at the bottom of the screen (by appending to a DOM element) when the user scrolls beyond the element, much like Facebook does with their status updates.
Do you know if anyone has ever done something like this with bbPress? Would you be able to guide me as I go through with this next step of adding the jquery?
Hi, no.. it’s not. I’m looking to display all replies across all forms under the forum topic index and under the individual forum pages.
Something like what this site is doing: http://www.silverdoctors.com/sd-reader-forum/ where they have the Most Recent Forum Comment – only it’s not really comments – it’s topic replies.
Its too bad this has never been answered. I’m looking for the same thing.
Hey, Thanks for the suggestion, but it didn’t do the trick. Any other suggestions?In reply to: wp-admin/ no access to Forum
Isn’t the url you’re looking for (the one that doesn’t work) supposed to be:

Change your forum base located here: http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=bbpress
from ‘forums’ to ‘newsroom’.
Uncheck the box next to ‘Prefix your forum area with the Forum Base slug (Recommended)’ if you don’t want the ‘forum’ in the URL as well. Just make sure you don’t run into any URL duplications.
What’s not working? You’ll need to describe the problem so the pros here on the forum can help you.In reply to: Cannot see the forum pages
Try re-saving your permalink structure by going to settings > permalinks and save… then try to view your forum. That usually fixes this type of issue for me.
I should add that all was working just fine until I updated BBPress to 2.0.1. The only reason I updated it was because a wordpress update said there was a new version to download and I downloaded it. Got the error when the auto install tried to reactive the plugin.
I have this issue too. It’s taken down my whole site. Needs resolved ASAP, please.
Yes, I could see the forums and figured out that this is an issue with the URL. The way that I have my forums set up is that there are hard coded links in the WP pages that link to each forum. With the old setup the link structure went to groups and then the last part of the URL was /forum. I figured out that the new bbPress isn’t integrated in with groups and that I will need to do a batch upload of new URL’s for all of my WP pages to update the links. I have over 1,800 individual forums and use the WP pages to ‘drill down’ so the site users can easily get to where they want to go.
This leads to my next question – when will bbPress 2.0 be fully integrated with buddypress forums and when it does integrate, will I be able to use my old link structure like it was set up when I had the old bbPress running?In reply to: All Links Broken BBpress 2.0
I’m with you @highexistence. Been having a lot of issues with bbpress 2.0… when going to one of my 1,900 forums (yes, I have that many individual forums) I get a 404 error – Page not found.
My site (a discussion site that relies on bbpress to deliver content to users) has essentially been down for the last 3 days since I’m installed the new bbpress 2.0. This is too long for my site to be down and would also like the steps on how to revert back to the old version of bbpress since that worked with no problems.
I look forward to his help. I’ve since switched my theme over to the twentyten theme so that you can see the forums do not show with the new bbpress 2010 theme.
What’s weird is my old theme even says that I don’t have the bbpress files needed to view the forums, but it still lets me view them. The new theme included with bbpress does obviously have the bbpress files, and I can’t view the forums with that theme.
This is very weird – almost like the bbpress 2.0 plugin didn’t install correctly or something since the forums are still viewable with the old theme and not with the new bbpress theme.
Thanks for the suggestion of clinking one recount at a time. That seemed to work for all except the ‘Recalculate last activity in each topic and forum’. I’ll call my hosting provider and ask them to bump up the ram.
No, I used the built in tool included with bbpress 2.0 (the importer).
There was no error provided (unless it’s logged in my server’s log files that I haven’t checked yet). After I clicked on recount and checked all of the boxes and clicked go, the browser just spun and came with a page saying there was an internal server error. Not other information was given. No error codes or anything.In reply to: Need Import Help – PHP Warning and Fatal Error
I got this to work. I had the wrong absolute path to the bb-config.php file.
I can’t give details right now… I’m restoring my DB. Basically it appeared to convert the users appropriately but whene it got to converting the forums, topics and replies, the tool failed throwing an error message (which I didn’t jot down because of the need to immediately restore the db).
That’s as far as I am.
