Topics not showing up in forums, Replies not showing up in single topics

  • I’m currently working on getting bbPress 2.1 to work with a Premium WP theme I just purchased. Everything appears to be working, but on forum pages the topics don’t show up, even though the forum description says that topics and replies exist. See the image below:

    Additionally, on single topic pages, none of the replies show up, even though the description says that replies and voices exist.

    I’m not using any template overrides in the WP theme. I can resolve the issue by switching to TwentyTen bbPress, so I’m pretty sure that something in the WP theme is causing the issue, I just have no Idea what it could be.

    Any light shed on this would be greatly appreciated!

    A few guesses.

    • The theme is filtering every query that WordPress runs, and nooping the results.
    • The theme is relying on output buffers, and isn’t cleaning up after itself correctly.

    Either way, you were right to switch back to TwentyTen. If you paid for a theme, you’re hopefully paying for support. Ask the theme author what’s up, and see if they can track down the cause.

    Thanks! I threw up a thread on the theme author’s support site. We’ll see if he can shed any light on the issue.

    So the theme was indeed filtering all queries. Commented out:

    add_filter(‘pre_get_posts’, ‘query_post_type’);

    and forums are working now.

    I’m having the exact same problem, but with the “pixel” theme (

    I looked for the “add_filter”, but could not find it.

    Can you please tell me where to look exactly ? I have to mention that php is foreign language to me…

    Thanks in advance.



    I would guess the functions.php file, check that out.

    Sorry fot this late reply, but I could not find it; there is no “filter” in that file.

    Besides, I have tried with the twenty ten theme and get the exact same behavior… I’m pretty lost here 😉



    I would suggest creating a new topic as the original posters problem was resolved when he switched to twentyten so it sounds like you have a different issue.
