This will be fixed today in 2.6.1. Sorry for the trouble!
I was coming to report the exact same thing!
2.6.1 is out now! Thanks for your patience!
I updated the plugin and the problem was solved, but now, a few minutes later, it is no longer showing. Strange.
John James Jacoby,
Updated to 2.6.1 and the problem is solved.
Updated to 2.6.1 and it was solved for a few minutes, but now, it is no longer showing the topics.
@cassel – on your site I can see forums, topic lists and topics – you night need to refresh your browser.
If you still think there is an issue, please come back
I refreshed he browser. I tried on an incognito window. I even changed from Chrome to Explorer, and changed computer, and I still don’t see, for example, the 4 topics inside the Lobby, or the 2 in the Let’s talk section.
I am not sure what is happening. The topics DID display, yesterday, just after I upgraded the plugin to 2.6.1, but it didn’t last.
Yes, that is what I see when I click on the Lobby section. But they used to be visible similar to this Wayback screenshot (scroll to the bottom):
Right now, the only ones visible are those in the Showroom.
sorry, but without extensive knowledge of how you are set up, it is difficult to comment further
Trying to figure out what has happened.
I know I have updated a handful of other plugins after upgrading to 2.6.1 so I deactivated all the plugins that I had upgraded and nothing changed.
What I find strange is that the section called “Showroom” does show the topics inside on the forum index but not the Lobby or the Let’s talk section, so it would not be something affecting all the forums/topics like a plugin conflict.
I have BuddyPress and bbpress style pack active, but even if I deactivate them, those topics still don’t show on the index page.
What else should I look into as POSSIBLE culprit?
ok, so in the live site on one or more of the forums you are expecting to see what the yellow bit in then screen shot below?
Yes, the Lobby and the Let’s talk should also display the topics, just like the Showroom does now and just like in your screenshot.
interesting – so showroom is right, but lobby should also show sub forums.
That means there must be a difference between how these are set.
so can you check each forum
so start with Showroom – is it a forum or category? then each of the sub forums – what is set as their parent, and what is their visibility?
then do the same for Lobby and see if you can spot any differences
They were all set to Forums.
I checked the parent and it was all set correctly.
The only difference I saw is that the order, in the Showroom was all set to 0, while the others had a number (for their order). I changed it to 0 for the Lobby and the Let’s Talk, and now, they all display correctly.
Strange. It works now. I never changed those order values since I set up the forum.
But at least, it works now.
Thanks for the help.
strange, just tried setting various orders in my test site, and it seems to work fine – so I canlt replicate your issue.
But as long as you are happy that you are fixed, then I’ll not dig further
