topic post type issue

  • fdecicco


    i am trying to integrate bbPress on a site that has a custom post type of ‘topic’ and this seems to be preventing me from getting bbpress working. I cannot get to the topics page for any forums as the custom post type somehow redirects all the links.

    Any idea of what I might be able to do to get around this issue. changing the topic post type that already exists is not an option at this point.

    I already tried to change the bbPress settings but nothing seems to make a difference. I am totally out of ideas and things to try.

    thank you.

    the conflict is with a custom taxonomy named Topics, not a post type as I thought before.

    It seems that I should be able to change the slug for bbPress but not sure how and where. The settings page does not do it.



    You are probably going to have to rename the custom post type “topic” in bbPress then. And areas that might be needed to modify the topic post type.

    I think you need to check out the bbpress.php file in the bbPress plugin where the custom post types are registered. There might be a filter you can use that will make you be able to modify the code externally and safely without changing the core files internally, which I don’t suggest you do if you are a beginner in coding.



    I was afraid of that.
    Thank you for the help.
