I faced the same problem after update to bbPress 2.6.4.
It’s very important to show ‘last updated’ correctly, because it’s needed to control the forum.
it is a bug in current version, the authors are aware
this temporary fix works for many
bbp Refresh Last Active Time
Thanks Robin. I’d tried your plugin a month ago when I was looking for solutions, and my forum is still showing the wrong date.
I guess I’ll just have to wait for an official bug fix.
Could you write a few lines of text how to apply this fix?
Download the zip file in Robin’s link. Upload and activate to your WordPress website as a plugin.
Sadly it didn’t seem to fix mine though, but has worked for others.
This fix works for me! Thanks a lot!
Following info may be useful:
* PHP 7.3
* Word Press 5.3.2
* bbPress 2.6.4
* No additional plugins related to bbPress.
Any updates on the time frame for this? I’m having the same problem and the fix suggested above didn’t solve it for me either
I’m still having the issue too.
I’ve tried the plugin mentioned in this post, and also another fix I found on the internet – none have worked.
presume you have tried
and does this work, even if for a shorttime ?
Yes, it seems to work until next time someone posts something
The tool “Recalculate last activity in each topic and forum” has worked for us in the past, but even that has stopped working now.
how many forums, topics and replies roughly does you forum have ?
It’s not very big as it was only launched recently:
hmm – do you have sub forums?
Yes, there are 12 main forums, the rest are sub forums.
ok, would you be happy for me to take a look at your site? if so, can you contact me via
Thanks Robin – I’ve emailed you.
Robins plugin (temp fix) is working great for me and site has 1000’s of topics 10’s of thousands of post BUT since installing i seem to have large delay loading the index. Is this expected behavior or should i dig deeper into what is causing issue?
that code only runs when a new topic is posted, and should not be resource heavy.
Is it in your functions file or code snippets or elsewhere?
Possibly could be widgets? I have a lot on index page but never used to be slow with the widgets. Honestly not sure it’s strange I wish I could figure it out!
@randrcomputers sinvce my code only runs on new topics – would be worth running a test with it enabled and disabled, and see if it makes a difference – if it does then come back.
