Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

  • Fatal error: Call to undefined function bb_get_option() in /home2/cincomej/public_html/3cincom/wp-content/plugins/easy-video-embed/easy-video-embed-plugin-0.1.php on line 37

    What does this mean?

    Was able to activate “Allow Images” and “bbPress Moderation Suite” plug-ins, though I have no idea how they function once installed.

    Hi Philv.

    The plugin has not been upgraded for BBpress 2.0+

    To use that plugin you will need to download the stand-alone version or bribe the plugin developer into updating it

    or; finding a new plugin that is compatible for 2.0+. :)

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the response, Chris.

    bbPress forums/topics permits an admin to post html content. Sadly, it appears to be a time in limbo before a member can do the same. It limits the range and ease of discussion.

    I will keep searching for a solution. Thanks again.



    One of the worst things about a major update like this, is that we lose alot of great plugins – But, it’s better finding out now that their not actively updating it anymore than use it for a while and find out one day that everything’s broken :)

    what type of html did you want your users posting?

    Post toolbar allows alot of great functionality –

    It seems to do the same thing as ‘easy video embed’ by allowing users to post videos using a ‘[video]‘ or ‘[youtube]’ shortcode.

    Also, because bbpress is now using WordPress post-types. you could also easily create other shortcodes to achieve what you want.

    Instead of letting users do img src and giving them complete control over the output of the image, you can allow them to do ‘[image]cat.img[/image]’ to achieve the same affect in an easier way, as an example.

    I do honestly think that using shortcodes (search the wordpress extend, theirs alot of shortcode plugins) would be a better option as it allows you to control it’s use properly, as i’m sure you know, some humans enjoy causing trouble – and their are afew html codes that can causing a hellish experience for your users if it gets into the hands of the wrong user.

    It’s one of the reasons doesn’t allow some html codes :)

    Chris, thanks so much. For now, the toolbar serves the purposes. The membership is restricted and I will be providing instructions for posting.

    I will be exploring shortcodes at the same time. Should I run into problems applying them, given my slow learning curve, I will return here for some excellent assistance.
