get_bb_location overite doesn’t work

  • If you have a complete new php file that acts like a new page, you can add it’s location with the below code, BUT I want to rename a existing php file. The problem is that its a filtered page: view.php?view=port. The problem is that this is still seen as view.php. How do I change this so that view.php?view=port is seen as a total new page so that the code below works and the location is added?

    function bbport_location() {
    if (bb_find_filename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) == "view.php?view=port"):
    return "port-page";

    add_filter( 'get_bb_location', 'bbport_location' );

    function is_bbport() {
    if ( 'port-page' == get_bb_location() )
    return true;
    return false;

  • To make my description easier:

    view.php gives: view-page

    view.php?view=port gives: view-page too.

    I want view.php?view=port to give: port-page



    Tested some stuff. I have this now:

    function bbport_location() {
    if (substr($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"],strrpos($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"],"/")+1) == "view.php?view=port"):
    return "port-page";

    add_filter( 'get_bb_location', 'bbport_location' );

    The problem is that it doesn’t return port-page. If I echo get_bb_location tis will still show: view-page instead of port-page. So why isn”t it updated? Why isn’t it returned?



    Yes there is a caching bug in bb_location that is fixed in the newest 1.0 alphas but remains in the earlier versions. I caught the problem a month or two ago and Sam patched it.

    So it’s impossible to add locations in bbPress 0.8-0.9. You have to work around it manually.

    Aaahhhh that explains a lot :) Going to add the patch en see if it works.

    Installed the alpha, but it still returns view-page….
