    After update from 2.5.3 to 2.5.4 my website is completely down with the following message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function bbp_get_topic_post_type() in /home/user/public_html/wp-content/plugins/bbpress-notify-nospam/bbpress-notify-nospam.php on line 107

    Any suggestions?

    I just installed the current version 1.5.3 and have no issues

    This Fatal error: Call to undefined function bbp_get_topic_post_type(), are you sure bbPress is activated?



    I’m a hosting reseller and a client updated bbpress and the same thing happened. The error log reads PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function bbp_get_topic_post_type() in /home5/nwjhogco/public_html/wp-content/plugins/bbpress-notify-nospam/bbpress-notify-nospam.php on line 107
    Site and admin are completely gone. No access. What can I do before resorting to restoring from an older backup?

    @pwdesign, see this post, basically for some reason bbPress is being disabled after updating under certain conditions (not exactly sure what these are yet).



    Just uploaded 1.5.3. No change. Site still down…please help.



    Thank you Stephen. I ended up just pulling down all the bbpress plugins…uploading the new patches and activating them one at a time. The site came back. I can breathe now…thanks.



    Dear Stephan!
    I update to 2.5.4
    And the page (topic) where video is, ever since, permanently refresh (load the page).

    Therefore can not view… Have a help?

    When a plugin is updated via WordPress’s Admin Interface

    • It is deactivated
    • New files are pulled down
    • It is reactivated

    Problem is, the bbPress Notify Spam plugin isn’t coded in such a way to fail gracefully when bbPress is not active. Thus when WordPress tries to reactivate bbPress, a fatal error occurs. Not because of bbPress, but because bbPress is temporarily not there, and bbPress Notify Spam tries to call bbPress functions.

    The fix is for that plugin author to use bbPress’s sub-actions and filters to include its files and execute code, and not call bbPress core functions without confirming bbPress is active previously in its call stack.

    Sorry y’all for the inconvenience, but there’s little we can do in bbPress core to prevent this type of thing.



    Was waiting patiently on the fix for that reply “super bug”. Thanks for addressing this.
