is it possible to have a link to your site and an example on it ?
I’d suggest you try
dashboard>tools>forums>repair and run one at a time
Yes I saw this as well and started to run them. Still no change. Are you not having this issue with your sites on 2.6.6?
no, most bbpress sites will be 2.6.6 and this was released in November 2020, so if this was an issue it should be well known by now.
Makes me wonder if it’s not the 2.6.6 but 2.6.6 on the newest WP version.
I’m running 2.6.6 on 5.7 on my test sites, all I can suggest is
it could be a theme or plugin issue
As a test switch to a default theme such as twentytwenty, and see if this fixes.
If that doesn’t work, also deactivate all plugins apart from bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.
If you cannot do this to your site (say because it is live) then use the ‘troubleshooting’ features of this plugin to let you test without affecting other users
Health Check & Troubleshooting
Then come back
I already did the theme check before I posted and I have done the plugin conflict checks with no changes. It has to be something with the forums repair not working.
ok, so what are you using to restrict the forum visibility
Something you just said made me think of the issue and fix. I am using the BBP Style Pack and didn’t turn that off when I was testing plugins. I thought I needed it but turns out I didn’t. Once I looked at more of the settings in that plugin I realized that the freshness dates were set to custom and blank.
great – glad you are fixed
