New Forum Meta data
You should only see the ‘forum creator’ in the backend /wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=forum
In the ‘frontend’ eg your /forums/ page you should only see something like this:
Forum Topics Replies Freshness
Forum Name 0 0 No Topics
Once the forum has topics the counts will update and ‘freshness’ will have the elapsed time and author name.
Its showing like this:
by: Author Name
There are no topics yet. So I take it that is not supposed to happen? How to fix?
Are you adding forum templates to your theme? If you are, take out the lines that output author metadata. If not, then you can use forum templates in your theme and not output author metadata.
It’s Genesis that’s doing it. It automatically adds author data to all WordPress posts. @jaredatch has a Genesis compatibility plugin to help take care of some of these known behaviors.
Nice! Found the plugin bbPress Genesis Extend. I’ll give it a try.
@John James Jacoby, Thanks again for that tip. I already had a similar genesis buddypress plugin smoothing out the integration. I had bbpress activated at only one subdomain on my multi-site. I determined that if I configured bbPress through Buddypress instead of as a stand-alone plugin, then I didn’t get the weirdness. However, that leads to a new question I can’t find the answer to: for bbPress sitewide forums, do I network activate (its a multi-site installation) or do I activate only at the main domain site?
