bbpress topic problem

    WP: 4.9.4
    bbpress Version 2.5.14
    Same behavior in a customized Suffusion theme and as the Twenty-twelve theme.

    Fairly new bbpress user here, so be gentle.

    Any topic started after a certain date is NOT showing the topic contents, only that of replies. The content is showing perfectly fine if the topic is edited from the admin side. I’ve reinstalled the plugin thinking it was something I did when trying to make the SUBSCRIBE link at the top of forums visible instead of scrunched up against the rest of the breadcrumbs as it appeared in our Suffusion theme.

    New topics posted behave this way, but older topics posted prior to that date are fine. We’re in the middle of a paid workshop on this forum and about to start another. So if anyone has any idea what I’ve done and where to look to undo it, it’d be greatly appreciated!

    what do you mean by ‘NOT showing the topic contents’ – do you mean the topic displays, but the content area is blank, or that the whole topic doesn’t display?

    Hi Robin,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    I’ve linked three screen shots below to show what’s different from a successful class in January, and the current class (Regency Post) and the one scheduled to start on Saturday (British Officer).

    In this first screenshot of a topic posted in January, you can see that everything is showing up as expected:
    TOPIC TITLE is followed by breadcrumbs, then the information on voices and freshness.
    Then comes the topic container with the columns listed and below that the topic’s datestamp and mod menu, then author’s Gravatar, Name, and the content of the topic posted. Any replies follow the topic content as expected.

    From a forum topic posted earlier this week that has replies:
    TOPIC TITLE is followed by breadcrumbs, then the information on voices and freshness.
    Then the next thing that’s show are the replies that would normally follow the topic content. Notice there is no topic container or mod menu and everything from the original topic post is missing. The topic content IS in the database as I got it in email just fine using the bbPress Notify (No-Spam) plugin which I just added in this afternoon and it’s visible from the admin side when the topic is edited there.

    From a forum topic posted earlier today that has no replies:
    Again, TOPIC TITLE is followed by breadcrumbs, then the information on voices and freshness.
    But since there are no replies there is no topic container or mod menu or any of the topic content and only the reply box shows.

    So obviously it looks like I’ve managed to zap some lines that pull that information into the generated page, but for the life of me, I don’t know where to start looking to find it to fix it again.

    Thanks! -Kristen

    UPDATE:

    Narrowed down a little further.. the one I thought was correct above is NOT… it appears that only REPLIES are showing, not the original topic post.

    Found the problem. Looks like it was caused by a plugin conflict between bbpress and Membership2 PRO. No problems with the free version of Membership2, but switching to the PRO version made it so initial topic posts did not show, only existing replies.

    Temporary solution: I backed out of using Membership2 PRO for now and I’ll go bug WPMU-Dev support to see what they suggest I do.

    Final solution: installed and am using your bbpress wp4 fix plugin and that solved the issue of forum contents not appearing.
