My Update to 2.0-beta-3 Tanked

  • This didn’t work so well for me. No sooner did I update than all three of my forums disappeared from the Forum Index page.

    Lucky for me my backup ducks were in a row. I restored 2.0-beta-2b and all was well. Phew.

    I guess I’ll have to hang loose for a while and see what happens.

    same here…

    And here. Update to beta-3 and suddenly Forum Index doesn’t display anything.

    To clarify, this was a page with the template “bbPress – Forums (Index)”.

    Adding a new page with the same template also failed to show the index.

    However, adding the shortcode


    to the page content makes the forum index appear again.

    I’ve been a little out of the loop so I don’t know if this is intentional – maybe the index template isn’t the way to do it now and we’re supposed to use the shortcode. Using the shortcode does have the advantage of being able to add text before and after the forum index. Other template pages seem fine though.

    In any event, it’s simple to fix.

    Sorry about that everyone. Typo in the template parts. Fixing asap.

    <?php bbp_get_template_part( 'bbpress/content', 'archive-forums' ); ?>

    …should be…

    <?php bbp_get_template_part( 'bbpress/content', 'archive-forum' ); ?>

    …as seen here at the trac revision.

    This seems to be resolving well. :-)



    I’m using a child theme, bbpress v3327, copied the contents of bbp-twentytento the child theme directory, creted a page “forums” assigned bbpress index template to it but it doesnt show the forum index unless i use the shortcodes, created some forums and topics inside of them and it doesnt show either the forums when i click on them or the topics, individual links don’t work.

    Forum index (shortcode enabled)

    Individual forum permalink (not working):

    individual forum link (partially not working, just shows the content)

    all of this was working with beta 2



    This seems to be resolving well here, except for the Widget Logic plugin that doesn’t work with this new beta version :(

    I used bbp-twentyten, no child theme, and a modified twentyten css. I have no theme-related issues.

    Consider. You have a platform, a theme, and a plugin. The three have to work together. The three developers have never met, have widely disparate skill levels, and the users are the QA (egad).

    It’s a miracle anything works in these systems. My hat is off to John and his bros.
