  • @JJJ honestly, I would consider it, but I can’t tell if this is going to be another half finished abandoned project like 1.0 was. What you guys are doing is great, but if WordPress HQ isn’t commited to seriously supporting the project this time, I can’t say I’m hopeful.

    Don’t mean to be too negative, I’m just saying what many are thinking.

    How many years left until BBpress gets its second 1.0 release?

    In reply to: bbPress Plugin is Born

    Just so the new developers understand, trying to have a discussion with kevinjohngallagher or _ck_ about the future of bbpress is an exercise in futility.

    They are extremely vocal and belligerent members who have dictated the tone of the community for over a year. kevin smiles while talking over you, but it isn’t any less damaging.

    Frankly if this site is moved to an alternate subdomain and they disappear completely, *that alone* would improve the bbpress experience.

    Thank you for keeping us informed on the progress and your intents. Please focus on coding and not community management on this point. The only “community” here are a dozen diehard, entrenched and bitter people who have been too stubborn to adjust their vision over the year we have known this change was coming.

    I’m excited to see this news. Soon WP will be supported again. Also, the 5 people who spam this community with their personal outrage daily will give up and use Vanilla, like they should have from the beginning.

    I’m hoping matt deletes this entire site soon and restarts from scratch using the same URL.

    I don’t understand why you people “looking for a lightweight forum” don’t just use Vanilla.

    *Obviously* BBpress is about working with WordPress, so those complaining about it becoming a plugin really need to get over yourselves. BBpress wasn’t made to cater whatever bizarre whim you wanted it to, it was made to provide a forum that functions with WordPress. A plugin works great for that.

    If you want something else, look elsewhere and stop blaming others for making a poor decision.

    In reply to: Cue the band…

    I just want someone authorative to tell us what the hell is going on. I don’t care about these community outreach or involvement discussion. Just tell me if BBpress has a future in any form or not. All I want is a open source forum that integrates easily with WordPress.

    I don’t care about the development direction BBpress is going to go. I just want to see movement.

    Matt needs to just ignore the entrenched, political, and vocal community members; make his own decision what is going to happen; and let us know. We’ve wasted months of development time with IRC and forum discussion that go nowhere.

    If BBpress is dead just let me know so I can move on.

    It isn’t at all comforting for someone to tell you everything is under control when it clearly isn’t.

    >WordPress didn’t become great by cramming a bunch of features in.

    WordPress became popular, and maintains its popularity, because it provides features users want. If you want Vanilla, go download Vanilla. When people get BBpress they expect comparable functionality to WordPress. Not some stripped down prototype of a forum framework.

    This community is hijacked by people who want BBpress forever to be 0.9. It is extremely frustrating to see people continually rail against increasing the base featureset of BBpress. Especially when _ck_ abandoning plugins that were crucial to the very existence of the BBpress community show the need for these features to be officially maintained and not exist on the emotional whims of a single person.

    Still having this problem. It is happening every even topic created when creating a bunch of topics in a row.

    I’m trying to trace back to what specifically calls _real_escape and why the dbh would suddenly be an invalid resource to that function.

    Additionally, the error referenced is from the following function, at the first return line:

    function _real_escape( $string )
    if ( $this->dbh && $this->real_escape ) {
    return mysql_real_escape_string( $string, $this->dbh );
    } else {
    return addslashes( $string );

    I am not certain, but I imagine you will need to modify the bbpress and WordPress templates to match the BuddyPress theme.

    In reply to: Plugin custom pages

    Well, I replaced the:


    line with:

    if (!bb_current_user_can('administrate')) {bb_auth();}

    Hopefully that is secure, everything seems to work now. Huzzah!

    In reply to: Plugin custom pages


    bb_auth(); in ‘functions.bb-pluggable.php’ is causing this redirection problem.

    I appear to be failing at the line:

    if ( !bb_validate_auth_cookie( '', $scheme ) ) {

    I’ll have to look into bb_validate_auth_cookie() to see where that leads.

    In reply to: Plugin custom pages

    A friend of mine helped me to determine this *is* being done by bbpress, most likely as some referral rule system. How do I get around this? I would like to be able to access my page from a rewritten URL.

    In reply to: Plugin custom pages

    Alright, now I am having *serious* issues getting Rewrite Rules to work.

    I’ve done these dozens of times and they aren’t particular complicated, here is a brief example of what I am trying to do:

    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^example/?$ /forum/bb-plugins/example/example.php [NC,L]

    Accessing ‘http://www.example.com/forum/bb-plugins/example/example.php&#8217; directly works perfectly. Accessing from ‘http://www.example.com/example&#8217; does a redirect to ‘http://www.example.com/forums&#8217;.

    There are NO other rewrite rules active. I even disabled those from bbpress to try to track down what is happening. But some sort of 302 redirect keeps occurring. Is bbpress triggering this internally somehow?

    In reply to: Plugin custom pages

    Okay, I ended up going a totally different route with this, I don’t know that it will work for everyone or if it is “proper”, but it works for me.

    my-plugin.php now has:


    From there I check if the user is authenticated as an admin with:


    After that I just call ‘my-function();’

    I will use mod_rewrite to make the URL less ridiculous.

    In reply to: Adding to topic form



    Since no one seems to be able to answer my question, I’ll post what I’ve discovered on my own, in case it could help someone who stumbles across this topic.

    Digging through “..bb-includesfunctions.bb-template.php” there seem to only be a few hooks available in this area.

    Post Form:

    pre_post_form, post_form, post_post_form

    Edit Form:

    pre_edit_form, edit_form, post_edit_form

    Some themes appear to have their own hooks. In kakumei I found:

    post_form_pre_post, edit_form_pre_post

    Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be too much room to insert into the form in a theme-agnostic way. In-order to have things look right, you’ll probably have to modify the theme.
