    I noticed few people one boards (WP & BBpress) complaining about WPML compatibility with bbPress. All themes were older than 6 months, so I am curious if anyone knows, if there is still a compatibility issue?

    Thanks for any information.



    you can try to disable all the plugin but bbpress.
    I had the same problem as yours but when I disable the WPML Multilingual CMS ,then the button is appeared



    Hi bo-oz,
    I don’t know what could cause the issues (probably another plugin), but for your last line: we also use WPML and bbpress works fine.




    I tried installing bbPress, after activation I was redirected to a page which told me “you have insufficient rights”. After a refresh, the plugin was activated but nothing changed in the menu (no formums menu option, also no settings -> forums was added). I tried deactivating -> activating and completely re-installing the plugin, but nothing worked so far.

    I use wordpress 4.3.1 and the latest version bbPress to automated plugin install.

    I’m also using WPML, could that be causing conflicts?



    I’m currently running a store with woocommerce and some other plugins like wpml. I wanted to create a forum for members for the shop, so just people which are registered to the shop can see the forum.

    So far the installation went fine and I created a forum with the private attribute. Members can see the forum BUT keymaster don’t. Which leads to the problem that I, as a keymaster, can’t administrate the forum.

    Is there any solution for that problem?

    I’ve a caching(?) problem and I’ve no idea how to solve it.

    I use bbpress on a single website in a multisite wordpress installation with the [bbp-forum-index] bbcode on a custom page as front page.
    Now I realised that then I’m moving topics or deleting some of them the topic- and post-counter as the freshness column doesn’t update. There still seems to be a topic but then clicking on the forum there isn’t.
    My first suspect is the cache but after smashing the F5 button and manually clearing the browser cache it’s still there. Also topics deleted a long time ago are still in the freshness column but not in the topic- and post-counter.
    We’re not using any caching plugins. The only thing that comes near a caching plugin is the plugin wordfence that has a caching option, but that function is disabled. I also deactivated the plugin but nothing changed.

    Now I’m quite confused. Does someone know of any problems with following plugins?

    What I’ve tried:
    – deactivating wordfence
    – use the Twenty Fifteen theme instead of evolve (on a test page same result if I move topics between different main categories or parent forums)

    What I use:
    – WordPress 4.3
    – bbPress 2.5.8
    – evolve theme 3.4.3 with a child theme
    test website:

    These plugins are active together with bbpress (on both the test website and the productive forum):
    – Breadcrumb NavXT 5.2.2
    – Redux Framework 3.5.7
    – Wordfence Security 6.0.15
    – WPML Multilingual CMS 3.2.6 (active on multisite but deactivated through the WPML intern deactivation)
    – WP Statistics 9.5.3
    – BuddyPress 2.3.3
    – WP Hide Admin Bar 2.0
    – Orbisius Child Theme Creator 1.2.8




    There should be a vBull importer in bbPress.

    The W3 Total Cache would help optimize bbPress. Of course it is more important to have high performance hardware on your site, use an opcode cache, possibly an object cache (the plugin helps add a backend file), and keeping your database tidy. Page cache can become a little tricky in some situations but it should be fine using w3 total cache with bbPres.

    bbPress is translatable and there are translations for specific langauges.

    bbPress could work in multilingual sites. It might be better to just allow your users to contribute their content in their language though. There is an issue using WPML though.



    I am working on this website, I added this code (below) to have the profile redirect to our dashboard using WPML. The nav however is out of order, and I do not know how to arrange this nav.

    So we have Home | About us | Logout | Profile

    The profile is added by the code in the function.php (below), which means it is not arranged by the menu section on the WP. I have a conditional navigation. So when not login, I got Register | Login only. Once I login I have Home | About us |

    So the logout and the profile are added by the code below. How do I arrange it that the logout will be at the end?

    	add_filter( 'wp_nav_menu_items', 'my_nav_menu_profile_link' );
    function my_nav_menu_profile_link($menu) {
        if (!is_user_logged_in())
            return $menu;
            $current_user = wp_get_current_user();
            $user=$current_user->user_login ;
            $profilelink = '<li><a href="' . bp_loggedin_user_domain( '/dashboard' ) . '">' . __('Profile') . '</a></li>';
            $menu = $menu . $profilelink;
            return $menu;

    Please and thank you,




    When I go to create a group in the front end;

    1) I enter group name and description;
    2) I insert the name and description of the group I want to create
    3) If i press next step, i am faced with a Wp error page asking: “Si è davvero sicuri di voler far questo?”, clicking on the “riprovare” me page not found.

    The group is not created.

    I installed WordPress 3.8.5 with the theme Avada version 3.6.1 of ThemeFusion.

    The main plugin installed are: bbpress (version 2.5.6), buddypress (version 2.2.1), wpml, GEO my WP (version 2.5 with add-ons: Groups Locator, Xprofile Fields, Post Types Locator and Members Locator) and U BuddyPress Forum Attachment.

    Thanks in advance

    Below the reaction I got from WPML.
    Forgive me but for me it is unthinkable that the most used forum plugin on the net 1,7 million downloads is still not WPML compatible.

    Are you taken actions to WPML to persuade them to shift gear on it?
    Here is the WPML reaction:


    Hello Adri

    Thank you for the Debug infos.

    Unfortunately I can not provide solutions for bbPress in use with WPML and WooCommerce by now.
    The Bridge Plugin isn’t supported at current time.

    Our DEV Team is working on a solution, but this will take time.

    For now the bbPress Plugin is considered as not compatible with WPML and also not compatible with WooCommerce Multilingual.

    I am happy you found a kind of workaround, though I assume you could encounter more issues later on using this plugin at current status of things.

    Regarding your last question, please refer to this DOC:

    The WPML Language Redirection based on browser language will “work” every 24 hours, unless you clean your cache of the browser.

    This is because if you take as example a visitor that has EN as browser language,
    but he wants to see your site in DE,
    he would not be able to see your DE site if WPML would ALWAYS redirect to the browser language.

    So WPML does only redirect the user once, and that cookie expires 24 hours after, or of course if you clean the browsers cache.

    I apologize that I can’t help much regarding the bbPress issues.

    It is in the ToDo list of the DEV Team.

    Thank you

    In my site I use two languages, English an Dutch. It took me a lot of time to get it running but after the install of the bbPress Multilingual plugin it seems fine. I have a translated forum.

    However the content of the topics are nit visible in both languages. Only in English or in Dutch. That depend on the page the topic is created. What I want is 1 forum, shown in the English AND in the Dutch site with the same topics.

    I’m running Worpress 4.1, bbPress 2.5.4, bbPress Multilingual 0.9. The translation is managed by WPML.

    Your advice please.


    In reply to: bbPress not working!?


    yeah WPML and bbPress have some compatiblity issues

    you should also search the WPML forums and post to the WPML forums if you need some support from them.

    I was able to point it down to WPML. When I activate the Multilingual CMS Plugin I see the custom Post Types dissappear. Searching the internet I discovered a bbPress Multilingual bridge plugin. I downloaded this plugin from GitHub an installed it. The Custom Post Types appears as they should.

    From this point on I was very optimistic but….
    It is virtually impossible to show the forum. It comes all down to permalink settings and page settings. When I select my WooCommerce shop page as the static front page (what I want) the forum is not visible. It redirects immediately to the front page. When I select no page as front page the forum appears when clicked on the menu item. Beats me! I’m pulling my hair out. Argggghhhhhhhh!!!!!!

    Thank you for your reply.

    I installed through the wordpress installer ->from the plugins ->add new -> install.
    Second attempt downloaded the zip, upload it to wordpress and activate it.

    No functions added.

    I’m using MAMP (for mac, obviously) with mySql and Apache.
    Because I’m on a mac I never had to bother about drivers etc.

    Other plugins are installing fine, except I had an issue in the last couple of days with the upgrade of WooCommerce in conjunction with the WPML plugin. That is solved. It was permalink related (content showed in English and was invisible in Dutch)

    I have tried to remove the bbPress plugin and try to reinstall it to no avail.

    I’m really puzzled here.



    Sorry but we have already implemented another application to have a forum.

    However, if another customer returns me to ask in the future, I will check if there is a stable solution for the coexistence of bbPres with WPML.

    Thanks anyway.





    there is a workaround toward the bottom.

    and also links for some custom development for this kind of thing if you want to do that.

    Can you think to you some action I can do to get, that these two great plugins works together?

    their site forums im sure shows that they work together , the WPML team says they are working on it , unless i havent found the topic/post that says they already have??



    WPML Support they neglect the issues.
    I think, having WordPress installed “by default” the WPML plugin, bbPress should take this into account and find a solution. Do not you believe it appropriate?



    Thanks Robin W.
    I followed the link and I have read all the support offered on the subject.
    In the end, they provided me a plugin bridge that has partly solved the problem, as I can now see the Administrator menus, but still bringing me back a page 404 clicking on the forums.
    Since WPML support are not likely to do more.
    Can you think to you some action I can do to get, that these two great plugins works together?

    Thanks in advance.

    After performing the tasks assigned by Robin W:

    It is a problem with a plugin, specifically with the “WPML Multilingual CMS (version By OnTheGoSystems”.

    Any idea so they can function simultaneously?

    Again, thanks in advance.

    Edit for expand: When I activate the plugin WPML, also the menus (Forums, Topics and Replies) disappear.



    Figured out all my issues with bbpress :).

    The culprit was that I had hidden a default language in WPML, which broke in bbpress quite some things.

    Robin W

    There seem tio be issues with wpml and bbpress see

    as an example.

    I’d suggest you try raising a ticket with wpml to see fi there has been a resolution since that post


    In reply to: Create Forum


    I think it is wpml. when I deactivate this plugin, Forum works. One more thing I want to ask is that what is the difference between forum types (Forum and Category). I create a new forum and I choose Forum type. then I create another new one with Category type. I don’t see the difference between appearances of these two forums.

    I’m going to close this before the “meeee tooooo” post arrive, I noticed on the WPML forums you should now the plugin :)



    HI @minutepapillion!

    Is there any way you can send me the plugin? I tried asking WPML (very nicely) and they keep saying it isn’t complete yet (and this is the only issue holding up the launch of my site)
