Re: Plugin problem
This one had me stumped but I just figured it out. I should probably document the solve it here in case others encounter the same problem.
Like many people, I have bbpress installed in a subdirectory below wordpress:
I also use the popular wp-super-cache plugin for wordpress. It turns out, you really need to add your bbpress directory to the list of rejected URI’s for wp-super-cache. For the above example, you’d want to add this line to the Rejected URI’s field:
Otherwise, your bbpress board and the administration panel will be semi-randomly showing you old cached pages. Unsurprisingly, this can cause all sorts of strangeness including apparently activating/de-activating plugins, showing plugins that you’ve deleted, etc.
