    Can somebody please tell me how translation of bbpress works?

    What I did:

    I installed WordPress and set my default language
    I installed bbpress plugin
    I installed Loco translate
    I create the map languages/bbpress on ftp
    I downloaded the .po and .mo and put in the map

    But nothing is working! Can somebody help me please?


    Hi, I have installed bbpress and uploaded the and bbpress-es_US.po files in

    wp-content> language> plugins

    but it doesnt works.
    I have added this line to wp-config.php

    define (‘BBLANG’, ‘es_ES’);

    But nothing was happened, all help is welcome ..!
    Thank you..!

    You shouldn’t need to do any of the above, setting your WordPress install to use German as the default language should automatically download bbPress’ translations.

    p.s. If you’re using the method above for a different reason, uploading them to wp-content/languages/bbpress instead of wp-content/languages/buddypress would be the answer 😉


    OK, Robin, thanks for your help.

    Two plugins were generating the conflict:

    1. Filtro de Traducción Transposh
    Translation filter for WordPress, After enabling please set languages at the the options page Want to help? visit our development site at
    Versión 0.9.6 | Por Equipo Transposh

    2. W3 Total Cache
    The highest rated and most complete WordPress performance plugin. Dramatically improve the speed and user experience of your site. Add browser, page, object and database caching as well as minify and content delivery network (CDN) to WordPress.

    Now all is OK. But maybe it helps to know these two plugins to create some kind of solution.

    Regards 🙏

    bbPress translation is centralized here:

    If you want to propose a new translation so everybody in the world that uses it in Russian gets your update (when it gets approved), then you can do that using the above link.

    If you only want to change it on your local installation, you can read the codex on

    Goede middag Jos,

    The translation is done centrally and changing it would change it for everybody in the (Dutch speaking) world. If you think it should be changed, feel free to join the #polyglots channel on the Dutch local slack that you can find on

    If you want to change it only for your own website, I would just change the width adding some extra CSS like:

    .bbp-login-form label {
        width: 150px;

    (you might need the !important to make it work)

    But you should not need to run anything from . If you have a standard WordPress install, the language files are downloaded automatically.

    How about other plugins that have translations available, do they work ? Like SEO or something ?


    In reply to: Problem translating



    I tried to start back from 0. I reinstalled wordpress 4.7.3, deleted loco translate, deleted and reinstalled bbpress. I then followed this guide : to download and install a translation which is apparently 100% complete for my language. Still it’s not completely working. I verified in /wp-admin/update-core.php and I have no updates. You cannot blame loco translate this time as it’s not even installed anymore on my website. Also, I can know my wordpress language is correctly setup because some translation does work as you can see on the following image :


    Please help me, this really seem like a bug with your plugin…

    One last thing: Check that there are no translation downloads waiting here: /wp-admin/update-core.php


    In reply to: Problem translating



    My language is already set to french and no translation have been downloaded… I am not using wpml but Loco Translate for updating my language files. I also can translate some of the string but not all so I know my translation setup is correct.

    If you switch your WordPress to Français in /wp-admin/options-general.php (Options > General), WordPress will download the French translation for bbPress automatically.



    Hi, I am trying to translate the frontend section of my forum, but I can only translate parts of it. Here’s a screenshot : Problem to translate

    As you can see, I can translate the top sentence, but I cannot translate the form part. I even tried to manually edit the php files without success (reverted to default files after).

    I am using Loco Translate for editing my translations and my wordpress language is correctly set because I can translate some parts. I also can see the sentences in the Loco Editor but event after changing them, they do not change in the frontend.

    I hope I have given enough informations.



    In reply to: multi-language bbpress



    (newest WP, newest polylang, newest bbpress) – same issue, polylang string translations works fine and are displayed in frontend where used, but bbpress content (forums, posts, comments) are all language-neutral, so same content are displayed in every “polylang-language-site”.

    Does bbpress support multi-language at all, or do we miss some setting/plugin?

    That’s something to be checked with the General Translation Editors ( )

    I will forward the link here to them.



    at wordpress translation page
    There is a LOT of waiting translations.
    Could you please look at it and confirm them as ‘current’?



    WordPress Version 4.7.1
    bbPress Version 2.5.12
    Theme: Hayden

    Hello, I am having great difficulty getting any widgets to appear in my Forums sidebar. I believe now that it relates to the page I have bbPress running on. After initially installing bbPress I later added a new page and added [bbp-forum-index] as directed to do in the documentation. However, when I’ve tried to use the Forums page id to exclude the Forums link from automatically appearing in the footer it did not work. Also I had to use (.bbpress) in my css to style the header of the page as .page-id- was not working.
    My issue still occurs when tested using Twenty Seventeen.


    I’m not satisfied with some of the translated words i bbpress (danish) – I have tried to change in / wp-content / languages / plugins / bbpress-da_DK.po

    I have tried to change freshness:

    #: includes/admin/forums.php:414 includes/admin/topics.php:638
    #: templates/default/bbpress/loop-forums.php:22
    #: templates/default/bbpress/loop-topics.php:22
    msgid “Freshness”
    msgstr “Seneste indlæg”

    If you have WordPress set to use Hebrew you should be able to go to Dashboard -> Updates -> Update Translations and WordPress will download the bbPress Hebrew translations automatically

    Stephen Edgar

    Actually, you should be able to do this now, I was looking at an incorrect URL.

    Finnish is in the API here

    You should be able to remove the .po & .mo files and then just update your translations from the dashboard (/wp-admin -> dashboard -> updates -> Update translations)

    Stephen Edgar

    When you downloaded those files what options did you select?

    You need to select All current to get the “current strings”

    p.s. I’ve also just made a request to have bbPress “stable” language packs generated, once this is complete you should be able to download the translations directly from the WordPress updates dashboard, just as you get the translations for WordPress itself.

    Keep an eye out for Finnish to show up in the API here


    With the


    plugin, text tranlation does not work: people still get the english text,
    eg :
    Hello!\n\nA new topic has been posted by [topic-author].\n\nTopic title: [topic-title]\nTopic url: [topic-url]\n\nTopic excerpt:\n[topic-excerpt]\n\nNotify message by bbPress Notifications

    in addition, the Bbp extension (in that localization) says
    Compatibility: Loading Issue: Author is using load_textdomain instead of load_plugin_textdomain function. This may break behavior of WordPress, because some filters and actions won’t be executed anymore. Please contact the Author about that.
    Thanks for for helping me to find another way to get french texts
    regards Charles



    I’m new to bbPress and have got the basic functionality working but I am having problems with the language pack.
    The one I downloaded said 100% and I dug around the files and saw the corresponding translations for different parts. However, it is not being reflected on the site. Well it is partially but not fully.

    View post on

    As you can see, only parts of the forum is being translated and looking through the PO file, I could see everything.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi @roozbehrah, we try to fully support RTL languages.

    The bbPress translations are an indicator of that, Hebrew and Arabic are also RTL languages and as far as I am aware there is no issues with URLs with these RTL languages.

    There is also this plugin that uses numeric permalinks, i.e. “topic/forum ID”:

    If you could add some further explanation and examples of how bbPress could support RTL locales and URLs better I’d be happy to add these improvements to bbPress 🙂


    As always apologize for my English, it is a translation from google translator. Searching google I got an answer of course to bbpress forums.

    The patch works, provided that the issue of the response is made by the author. If it is effected by a moderator or administrator keeps repeating in the line of activity

    I looked directly into buddypress forums, but as is almost always the subject had no answer, linking to the core or incompressible explanations and as always in this forum recommend hiring a developer and close the issue. It seems that they forgot the essence of wordpress: Community.

    In fact it seems that in the future buddypress will be absorbed by bbpress. It’s just my appreciation and sorry to say nonsense.

    WP 4.6
    bbPress 2.5.10
    Buddypress 2.6.2

    The patch works, as long as the issue is made by the author.


    Stephen Edgar

    This behaviour changed in WordPress 4.6, it now loads WP’s translations first by default

    See as there is a proposal that will address the issue, if you like you can also click “Watch this ticket” and you’ll get emails when there are new updates on the ticket.
