bbpress feeds, the author and a sort problem
The topic title in bbpress rss feeds is “(author) on (title)” which is really bad, because I can’t sort on title anymore. This is sort by author, because the author is the first string in the title.
And it is redundant, because there is a author field which I can see in my feed reader.
Maybe you can change this to “(title) – (author)” (or similar) …
I see this on http://de.forums.wordpress.com and I know this is not the latest version running there. So if this is changed in the latest version, just tell me!
Thanks in Advance!

I have installed the latest 2.0 WP plugin, and there the feed shows a little different.
I found this code in the bbp-topic-functions.php:
<title><?php bloginfo_rss( ‘name’ ); ?> » <?php _e( ‘All Topics’, ‘bbpress’ ); ?></title>
If you alter that you could probably get the RSS title to say whatever you’d like.
I also found this:
<title><?php bloginfo_rss(‘name’); echo $title; ?></title>
I have ony 2 days of experience with bbPress, but this might help you…?
“If you alter that you could probably get the RSS title to say whatever you’d like.”
I can’t alter any files, because I am requesting this change for an existing WP.com support forum, for which I am the moderator ( but not admin!). And after requesting it elsewhere, they told me to come here in this forum and put my request in this forum …
BTW, I think you found just the title for the HTML page and not the rss feed.
Ok, I have no idea about the bbPress.org and wp.com relationshop.
However I believe that is the correct place to alter the RSS feed
Here is the code in syntax:
// Display the feed
header( 'Content-Type: text/xml; charset=' . get_option( 'blog_charset' ), true );
header( 'Status: 200 OK' );
echo '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="' . get_option( 'blog_charset' ) . '"?' . '>'; ?>
<?php do_action( 'bbp_feed' ); ?>
<title><?php bloginfo_rss( 'name' ); ?> » <?php _e( 'All Topics', 'bbpress' ); ?></title>
<atom:link href="<?php self_link(); ?>" rel="self" type="application/rss+xml" />
<link><?php self_link(); ?></link>
<pubDate><?php echo mysql2date( 'D, d M Y H:i:s O', '', false ); ?></pubDate>
<generator>https://bbpress.org/?v=<?php bbp_version(); ?></generator>
<language><?php echo get_option( 'rss_language' ); ?></language>
<?php do_action( 'bbp_feed_head' ); ?>
Oh, sorry! You are absolutely right. Without the context I thought this is not the right line, but with the context it is quite obvious that you are correct! Sorry again.
But again, YOUR question was regarding the http://de.forums.wordpress.com
I am a fresh user of bbPress, but as far as I can see that forum us the “old” stand alone version of the bbPress. At least the code says so in the RSS generator:
<!-- generator="bbPress/1.1-alpha-2539" -->`
In that case I am not the one that can help. I don’t even know who is leading the bbPress project
Hope you get the help you need from others here!
Yes, I know. I wrote this is in my first post:

Thank you for hoping with me …
