Topic: Can’t import phpbb 3.2.0
I finally had enough with phpbb and installed a wordpress JUST for my forums. I installed bbpress in it and have been trying to import the forums over. First it kept erroring saying missing table fields or whatever, so I kept adding the table fields to the areas of the phpbb’s sql DB where it was looking for them..then it got stuck with the “Starting Conversion” and a spinning wheel. Everytime I had chosen “Start Over” I would get the “Specified key was too long; max key length is 1000 bytes” error. Just not my day I guess. 🙁
I had a few questions…
1) Does the importer not support 3.2.0? I figured it does by now since it states phpBB 3.x
2) Can you make the main index page of the WordPress site the forums? This way the wordpress is for nothing other than the forums? (once things do get working…)
3) Am I missing anything lol…I’m rackin my mind on this and it’s driving me nuts 🙂
I can’t wait to be in a better environment for the forums…
I am trying to use bbPress for a forum and when I use the short code to generate the index it does not show correctly. It does show a link (http://localhost/my-app/wordpress/forums/forum/wvv-forums/)for the index and if I click on the link it shows a better formatted list.
I have 4 sub-forums and instead of 1 per line, it shows 2 per line. Using Twenty Seventeen and have previewed with sixteen and fifteen themes, too with no effect.
What do I need to do to fix this?
Thanks in advance.
Topic: topic don’t show up
Hello, i have install the bbPress on my wordpress site … i have create the forum sections, but topics don’t show up… somebody knows the solution? I have tried to change the users role, but is not possibile …
My wesbite code is displaying at the bottom of my forum page. Link: https://mysecuritycareer.com.au/forum/security-industry-forum-australia/
I am using enfold.Wordpress 4.9.8.BBpress Version 2.5.14
Does anyone know how I could fix this?
I’ve been using bbPress and BuddyPress since long and am aware that if a user creates a topic in any forum, that also gets listed in user profile -> Forums tab.
Here is what exactly I’ve done:
When I create a private group and attach a forum with it. And a non-admin member becomes a member of that private group. Now that member creates a topic in that private forum, that topic does show globally on the /forums page. But when that user checks his profile for the topics he created, there no topic is shown. Which means the topics that show up globally, doesn’t show on the profile page.
For the information, I’m using the following versions of the plugins and theme:
1. bbPress – 2.5.14
2. BuddyPress – 3.2.0
3. Twenty Sixteen – 1.5
4. WordPress – 4.9.8
Please help me with this issue. Also, let me know if some guys have come across such a situation.
Thanks in advance!
Topic: WP Version
Hello. It shows that this plugin is “Untested with your version of WordPress” and hasn’t been updated in over a year? I don’t want to get another plugin that doesn’t work so could you tell me if there are any plans to update to the latest WP Version? It’s not like Version 4.9.8 just came out. Thanks in advance!
Topic: Struggling with login
I am struggling with a login button within my page for bbpress. I have tried to use 2 different plugs and I am having 2 different problems. I dont want to use a sidebar option. If anyone can provide a solution to either one I would really appreciate it:
bbp style pack – When I select add login/logout to menu options it adds “Log In” to the navigation menu higher then the other menu options (ie. it sits vertically higher by about half the text height”. Can anyone help with how to align this with the other text?
bbpress WP tweaks – This provides an acceptable button to login however the login link takes me to the actual backend wordpress login page. Simply changing the href=” ” to the page on my website does not work either.
I would prefer to use the bbp style pack however either will do at this stage. I am very new to buidling websites and I don’t want to play around in the functions.php area at risk of crashing my entire site.
Thank you for your help.
how to determine if its a member or an admin ( by admin , i mean the administrator and keymaster levels ) ?
if not , where can i find a good documentation about bbpress template tags like wordpress’ one ?
Hello, i have a problem, i see a text before the text editor in bbpress.
The text is: “CONTENT string (0)”
How can i remove it?
Topic: Importer major issue
I’d like to share my workaround to fix the following problem:
After importing all topics and posts and forums and users from my old WebsiteA, I couldn’t see any topics inside my forums on my new WebsiteB. The counts were correct, but I could only see sticky topics inside each forum, nothing else.
I tried the built-in fixing tools, but that was a BAD IDEA. It broke my site every time I tried it (blank page on front-end without any error). The only way to fix it was to restaure the whole database!
So I looked at the database and found that a simple info was missing. All topics were set with post_parent = 0, while the corresponding postmeta _bbp_forum_id field was set correctly.
All that was needed to do is to update this post_parent field by fetching this meta value.
Here’s my working SQL script (of course do NOT FORGET to save your database first…):
UPDATE 'wp_posts' SET post_parent = ( SELECT meta_value FROM 'wp_postmeta' WHERE post_id=ID AND meta_key="_bbp_forum_id") WHERE post_parent = 0;
I also want to point something VERY annoying when using the WP importer. WordPress asked me to match every single forum user from WebsiteA with the dropdown list of users from WebsiteB, which is very stupid since I had imported all the users. They were all identical.
It literally took me an hour to select every user on the dropdown menu…
The user IDs were the same on both websites!! Why not auto-selecting???????
I hope some dev will see this and fix it somehow, because it sounds like something quite easy to fix 😉
Have a nice day
