    Did you download the legacy 2.3 version for bbPress versions prior to .9, or are you trying to run v3?



    I am running version 3. Should I go with the 2.3 then?

    Yes, use the older one (2.3) for bbPress versions earlier than 0.9

    Functionally there is little difference and you can upgrade both bbPress and Support Forum together later on without loss of data.

    Thanks for pointing in the right direction chrishajer.



    OK, Thanks for all that. The plugin now works!

    One issue remains.

    The image URI seems to be missing ‘my-plugins’ from the string.

    I attempted to edit the plugin. Line 283

    $this->iconPath = str_replace(rtrim(BBPLUGINDIR, ‘/’), ”, dirname(__FILE__)) . ‘/’;

    adding ‘myplugins’

    like this:

    $this->iconPath = str_replace(rtrim(BBPLUGINDIR, ‘/my-plugins’), ”, dirname(__FILE__)) . ‘/’;

    gave me this:

    I am bewildered by that one.

    I can cope till version 9 comes and I can upgrade to 3.0 of the plugin. The status text is there. Not earth shatteringly horrible. Not even public yet. But soon!

    Thanks for the help sambauers and chrishajer. Having been a WP person for a while now, BBPress follows in the great tradition. I knew this was the right way to go.

    I can’t say for sure what is happening for you, but you can just define this constant in your config.php file and it should override that calculated path.

    define('SUPPORT_FORUM_ICON_URI', '');


    This is not a hack, the plugin was built to allow overrides on that value because of circumstances like yours.

    The new version of the plugin has a better way of calculating that value by the way.



    Thank you very much. That worked a treat!

    Youse Kick Arse!
