    it could be a theme or plugin issue

    Themes

    As a test switch to a default theme such as twentytwenty, and see if this fixes.

    Plugins

    If that doesn’t work, also deactivate all plugins apart from bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    If you cannot do this to your site (say because it is live) then use the ‘troubleshooting’ features of this plugin to let you test without affecting other users

    Hello,

    I am using bbpress forum, and having problem with the forum. If I open a forum thread and want to go back to main forum, there is no option to go back to main forum. And breadcrumb does not display on the forum. I have attached snapshot too.

    I tried the above solution but the same issue persists. is there anyone from the development end of bbpress that can lend a hand?

    Replace it with just a list of topics, yes. I have bbPress 2.6.6, and I haven’t changed the theme, so I’m assuming I’m using whatever the default theme is.

    Hi there

    It’s the end of Sept 2021 and I’ve been trying to sort out an old PHPBB conversion to BBPress.
    WP: 5.8.1 and BBPress 2.6.6

    I can confirm I’ve done this seemingly successfully. It took a few tries but with this thread I’ve got it working.

    I just wanted to share what worked in 2021.

    1. I exported my old PHPBB database (.sql file) and then set up a new database on my current host and imported the PHPBB to it.
    This just simplified any server timeouts and other connection issues.

    2. I obviously had BBpress installed within WP, but the included PHPBB converter doesn’t work (why??) so copied two files from this thread.

    a. Firstly, I had the ‘annonymous user’ loop mentioned above so copied @davidmanch great code (a couple of comments above) into:
    /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/admin/classes/class-bbp-converter.php
    This fixed the never ending loop but the built in converter didn’t import any users, so …

    b. I copied @a8bit excellent code (3 posts above this one) into:
    /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/admin/converters/phpbb.php
    This added many more steps to the import which completed without errors. I’m thinking this code might also have fixed the annonymous user loop too but didn’t try it on it’s own?? I’d already change the code in a. above. If you do this, maybe just try this code only and see if it works.

    So, if you find this now, it does work (for me at least) so hopefully you don’t have to hunt around for solutions.

    The BBPress guys need to look at these two pieces of code and see why their packaged converter doesn’t work. It’s very frustrating and shouldn’t be left to users much smarter than me to fix … but I’m glad they did.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    WP 5.7.3 Admiral. Latest version of bbpress.
    https://www.seignalet-plus.com/forums/forum/surviving-the-scamdemic/

    I have a no right click plug in on my site. How can I exclude it from the forum? I want people to be able to post links (apart from spammers of course 😉 ) and be able to embed videos.

    I’ve looked at all the no right click plug ins and none seem to have that capability.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I turned everything off and then started reactivating one at a time and checking. It was the ProfileGrid BBpress plugin making it so that we couldn’t add topics, so I just turned it off. Hopefully that solves it. Thank you SO MUCH for your help. I try to stick with very simple websites and this one has definitely wandered off that track. 🙂

    ‘There are some settings that will basically let you “refresh” certain aspects’

    ok no idea where that is and without a clear ‘click this, press that’ not really able to help on that aspect, and may well be an additional plugin which may be the cause.

    so I’d suggest

    it could be a theme or plugin issue

    if only your invited users have login, then just set the forums as ‘private’.

    If lots of users have login and you want only some to see the forums, then use bbpress and this additional plugin

    Private groups

    Hi, we are using BBPress on ccwbra.com with WordPress 5.5.6 running Total theme.

    Hi,

    I’m experiencing some really odd behaviour when trying to change the slug for my Buddypress group directory (under which all my BBpress forums are housed) and redirect traffic.

    My set-up is: BP 9.1.1; BBp 2.6.6, WP 5.8.1

    Short explanation:

    • traffic to a pre-change (/[old]/[groupname]) group url is being redirected to (/[new]/[groupname]/forum)
    • This happens regardless of whether:
      • There is a specific redirect in place
      • There is a regex redirect in place (/[old]/(.*) to /[new]/$1/)
      • There is no redirect at all
    • My redirect provider – Rank Math – can’t explain this.

    I’ve not modified my hta, and the only other redirect rules in page on the site relate to post-login behaviour. It seems there’s something deep within Buddypress, BBpress or WordPress which is driving this, but I have no idea what.

    Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this abd how to address it? I dare not make this change on my live site without resolving and having a clear idea what’s behind it.

    Appreciate any suggestions…

    I’d start by working out why emails are not arriving.

    bbpress just uses the wordpress registration so start with

    Email Test – Check if your emails are being delivered

    and then look at

    WP Mail SMTP by WPForms

    Hi,

    I just installed BBpress and tried to register. The email does not arrive. It seems that this is a common problem. I looked at the competitor forum plug in support forum and same problem with that plug in.

    A poster wrote that he solved the problem by having the registration without email. How do I set that up? I have the BBpress tweaks plug in.

    Alternatively is there a way of sending the email through mailchimp or similar? I have a mailchimp account.

    I recently had an attack on my forum where almost 14,000 posts were made in rapid succession, all with oriental characters. This wasn’t my main forum, but a secondary forum, so the contents isn’t super-important, although I’d like to preserve it if possible.

    I’ve tried sending the offending topics to trash, but there are at this point 11,000 of them, and every time I try to delete even 100 using the Bulk actions, I get a Resource limit message with a 503 or 505 error. I can’t possibly delete the topics one at a time! I’ve tried sending the entire forum to trash, but I get the same thing.

    In addition, I don’t understand how there could be topics started by Anonymous, when in my forum settings I have that ability UNchecked. After the attack, I upped the flood control settings to 90 seconds, and closed that forum, but I still don’t understand how they got in to do all that!

    I’m on bbPress 2.6.6, WordPress 5.8.1, and the site is http://bluebirdnut.com/forums/. The forum where the bogus posts are located is the second one listed, Soup to Nuts forum.

    Wordpress 5.8.1
    bbPress 2.2.6
    antiquebowieknifeassociation.com

    Everything was working just fine, until over the weekend. Suddenly started getting an error saying “you do not have permission to start a new topic” for all users except admins. (Every member has participant role for forums)

    Looked here and found a tip to remap my users, said that would fix the problem. Remapped users.

    Message changed to “you cannot create new topics” for everyone except admin.

    Where do I set the permission for all participants to be able to create new topics?

    Thank you!

    I am looking to achieve ( I think) what does not work on the https://bbpress.org/forums/new-topic/ page currently ?

    On the left of this page is a Tab named Feeds, both ‘All Recent Posts’ and ‘All Recent Topics’ which do not work

    I am ideally looking at a way to list recent replies / posts without limiting the search to newest post per Topic ?

    I’m a newbie with code and web implementation, so forgive me if this is a dumb question. My readers have reported the following: “I’ve been trying to be able to post on your forum. I have a wordpress account, which I use to try to log in. After that it takes me to a jetpack and wordpress site, which Makes me put in my info again. But when I do, it then it takes me back to the original jetpack/wordpress page.”

    Here is the forum:

    Forum *new*

    And yet they can make comments on my site with ease:

    Discussion

    I installed bbPress using this slug: [bbp-forum-index]

    What am I missing? Thanks ahead!

    I understand, you have been a great help already by telling me that the problem was not with bbpress, as a user and not being dev, it is sometimes difficult to argue when we are answered in a hurry. I reported the information to Milan, and he agreed to review his copy 🙂

    Thanks @robin-w for your reply!
    The dev is Milan, and the plugin GD bbPress Toolbox.
    I turn to him to understand more.

    sorry, just re-read this properly, and you are falling between 2 stools. It is not a bbpress issue, bbpress uses translations to display the correct names in languages. That the other plugin developer has decided not to is not really a bbpress issue.

    I’m guessing the answer is no, but I’m wondering if anyone knows of a plugin, etc, that would give users a notification on the website that they had a reply to one of their replies. This is a fairly common feature of internet forums. From what I can tell bbPress only has the posibility for email notifications. Personally I like email, but for the project I’m working on now, they aren’t a good communication method.

    I’ve looked through the plugin repository and haven’t found anything. It seems like this is something more along the lines of BuddyPress, but I wanted to ask here before I go down that rabbit hole. I really don’t want any of the social aspects of BP, so if that was the only solution I would have to end up disabling most of the features (which would be fine if it got me what I needed).

    As an aside, I wanted to acknowledge all the folks who are continuously active on this forum and work to support the project. I imagine there is lots of traffic from users like me who are trying to get things setup for their specific project and need to make lots of requests for features that just aren’t a part of the core plugin and likely never will be. But without the support of the core forum members, there would be little success with the plugin at all. So thank you!

    Hi there,
    I am using a plugin that displays my forum statistics, and after talking to the developer about a translation that is not showing as expected, he replied “My plugin get’s roles from bbPress, it has no influence on the translations for them, and if the bbPress function sends them without translation, there is not much I can do about it.”
    Does anyone have any idea how bbpress can “send a function WITH translation”?
    My regards,
    Ludovic

    Yes, I’m definitely after a lock rather than a deterrent.

    I’m going on the assumption that http requests for bbpress content returns a url with a path that has ‘forums’ in that position.

    What are the ways that non-members can access content outside of that condition?

    ie, what are the other conditions that I have to protect against?
