    Hi Adri,
    Sorry to come back on this thread, but I have some Dutch WP colleagues that can discuss WPML with you if you want to join on slack. Short procedure:
    • Login with your account on this link:
    • Scroll on that page ( to “Joining the WordPress team on Slack” and enter your email address
    • Check your email and you will have a “” account
    • Activate your account on
    • Use that created account on to signup to the Dutch WordPress community

    Hi all,
    I think I got it worked out together with Otto and Tia over at WPML.
    You can have a look at it at those two topics:

    BTW I hide the language switcher(s) on the topics pages by adding this piece of code in my header file

    <?php if (!is_bbpress()) {
    } ?>

    and this in my footer.php

    <?php if (!is_bbpress()) {
    } ?>

    I hope it helps you as well.

    @robin-w: thank you for your reply. I’m sure it could work. However using this solution forces me to create a function for every language I add.

    : Goeiemorgen, daar zijn we weer! Thanks for helping out. I have achieved a lot of what I want but the breadcrumbs remains. (for reference, see this topic on WPML:

    As a result of this thread I have an English forum AND a Dutch page displaying the forum with a shortcode with only one set of topics. Exactly what I want.

    For the breadcrumbs I tried to create a solution with an onclick event and then navigate back in the history but that is not reliable. When a user is entering a topic from, let’s say a google search result page and then clicking the breadcrumb link they are send back to the google page.

    I imagine something like this:

    The English page for the forum has the slug: supportforum (for example)
    The Dutch page for the forum has the slug: helpforum (for example)

    On the forum index page no breadcrumbs are needed.
    On the topics page I only want a link back to the forum index for the appropriate language.
    So the ‘solution’ must not link back to the forum slug but to the page where the index lives.
    I have absolutely no idea how to achieve this.

    The outputted link has to be something like this:

    For the other languages:

    In my case English is the default language and Dutch is the translation.
    The urls should be: -> for the default English language.
    and -> for the Dutch language forum page.
    same way for every other language added.

    I hope this description make sense.

    @robin-w : Dutch, not Danish 🙂

    : Goedemorgen. I have been looking for you on the Dutch slack but didn’t find you. I have myself a WPML instance with 3 languages and I will have to think of this myself soon, so keep monitoring this thread as I might come back to you with possibilities in the next weeks.

    Although this is an old thread I just try my luck.
    The solution above does work however I’m trying to get it to work in a multi-lingual site using WPML. I know there are issues with the compatibility between bbPress and WPML. What happening is that when I click on the (altered) breadcrumb it alway returns to the English version.

    I’ve been working on a solution to use bbPress in my multi-lingual site for quite a while now and this is the one issue left.

    I do not translate the forums because I want the English topics displayed on all different language pages. However I want to achieve that the visitor is returning to /nl/supportforum/ (when the site is in Dutch) instead of /supportforum which is the English version.

    Please advice.




    I’m using WPML plugin. You say that it be tough one. Can you say me how can I do that ?

    Best regards,



    I have a site in 3 languages, made with the Enfold theme and the WPML plugin.
    English: hidden
    French: default

    In the footer widget area of the theme, I added the bbPress “Recent Topics” widget, and it is only showing in the French site. In the Dutch site, the footer widget area is empty.
    This also happens in sidebars.
    Other (bbPress) widgets work perfectly in both languages.

    What can I do to solve this? Where can I find the code to change it?

    I’m using WordPress 4.4, bbpress 2.5.8 & WPML 3.3.3



    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:

    Automatic Redirect Based on Browser Language

    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!!!!!!

    Adri Oosterwijk

    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?
