bbPress 2.6 Beta 2

    Hey everyone! Guess what?

    bbPress 2.6, beta 2, is now available for testing.

    Download it from here: https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/bbpress.2.6-beta-2.zip

    Why is this cool? For starters, @jeffr0 may finally climb down off my back and stop giving me grief for how long it’s been since we shipped a major release.

    bbPress 2.5.0 in 2014, 3 years ago.

    Most people wouldn’t be proud to say that, but… I am. The 2.5 branch of bbPress has been so stable & well received, we were able to take our time with 2.6 and double-down on upstream improvements to WordPress.

    bbPress 2.6 will come with:

    * Per-forum moderators
    * Improved favorites & subscriptions management
    * Improved BuddyPress integration
    * Performance improvements across the board
    * UX improvements to meta-boxes and admin-area tools
    * Tighter integration with WordPress’s Dashboard
    * Template tweaks & clean-up
    * About 110 other things

    If you’re going to test 2.6 on a live site, maybe don’t just yet. It runs a database upgrade routine to migrate favorites & subscriptions from usermeta to postmeta, and for large forums that may take a while or possibly lock things up for a bit.

    We are already running 2.6 here and on bbPress.org, so enjoy the speedier new posting experience, and we’ll let you know when the next beta is ready!

    No thx, I started to love BBPress after some time 🙂 …

    It’s not giving them moderation capabilities indeed. No popup in my env., only a textfield.I will start by disabling plugins, see if one is causing the problem.

    Another small (or big issue 🙂 ).

    When a topic or reply is viewed in the backend (edited) uploaded images are kind of big.

    It seems that the shortcode: [bbp-topic-index] (which I use as the landing page on my forum and in a few navigation tabs) isn’t working in my 2 test environment installs. Could this be confirmed?

    Confirming the Permalinks (settings) solves the issue in both env.

    In the meantime I migrated the second beta to my live site, http://www.starry-night.nl

    I noticed (after the migration) that trashing a topic WITHOUT replies leads to my WP: Not Found page. So the handling could be improved there (or a bug entered the code).

    When trashing a topic with replies BBPress jumps to what looks my first topic (BBPress) entries.

    All and all, very nice upgrade, I can’t say the BBPress runs real faster (yet).

    Hi Guys,

    Is there likely to be a lot of change for frontend classes etc?

    Further, is there an ETA for a ‘stable’ release?

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately 2.6 beta2 is still not php 7 compatible on my host. Getting server error 500 on php 7.

    is there any progress with this upgrade? Or does this takes many months.

    Iám wait for a save update to solve the slow postingtime.

    bbPress 2.5 and 2.6 work fine with PHP 7. Check your server log to see which error you have there.

    I see JJJ closed some tickets yesterday. Thanks.

    Only 16 tickets remain open for now, this means Beta 3 or what?
