Adding "reply" and "new topic" buttons to my forum

  • Hi, i’m using BBPress 2.0 with BuddyPress 1.5 which were installed seperately and aren’t integrated through BP.

    My BBPress forum is great, however after moving from SMF many members have asked for a “New Topic” button and a “Reply” button in the forums. They can reply or start new topics with the form at the bottom of the page, but for usability i’d like to make their transition a bit easier.

    Is it possible to add a reply button to each post – one which quotes the post made?

    Also, a reply button at the top/bottom of the thread which takes the user to a page with the posting form would be great.

    Also is it possible to have a “New topic” button on the forum index?

    Lastly, what files would I edit to make these changes?

    Thanks in advance :)

  • I found a plugin for “quote” links under posts, but if anyone knows how to add a “New Topic” and “reply” to the top/bottom of the thread page it would be much appreciated :)

    Sorry to bump this but anyone know how to add New topic/reply buttons?



    jus’ add a link to where you need and make the url to the div of the new topic/reply form. I used this one for myself to new topic in the forum page:

    <?php if(bb_get_forum_is_category() != bb_is_user_logged_in()) { echo "— <a href='#post-form' class='jAdd'>Add new »</a>"; } ?>

    The a class is for a jQuery thing I used, you don’t need that.

    That’s perfect 7i7GRiFFiN i’ll play with this later, thanks!

    I assume that takes them to the post form area on the forum page itself?

    I could do that with a ‘Reply’ button on each post too.

    Much thanks :)



    Yep, but something else you can use if you want that play like Twitter to reply game (Got my mean? Like @OAEErra) on topics you can use this: Easy Mentions

    Note: The code I gave you is for StandAlone vr. not the bbPlugin

    Bit lost – where in the template should I add this bit of code?

    Much thanks :)
