Manish – did you get a temp fix for this? Pls share. Thanks
ok – i replicated the bp_get_latest_post funtion to exclude the specific blog id. Would be good if this feature is incorporated in future. thanks
@Suzanne: how to make this plugin to exclude grabbing posts from specific blog? Thanks
oppss.. just found out this is due to fbconnect.init not called in the footer.
Hm.. strange. i noticed this button doesnt appear on wwpmu2.8.6/bp1.1.3 too (bp-fbconnect plugin).
@ray — that works superbly! thank you again, your help to clarify the structure, use of the modified hidden forum plugin and idea to set group forum category as ID=1 !! thx
@ray – i really appreciate this. it’s all clear to me now. I can now manually hide the group forum in bbpress (irregardless of public or private or hidden group). Its quite basic but works fine i.e. group members must go their group site to have access to the group forum.. which is cool btw.
In step #2 above:
How do we make sure that all new group forums are automatically added into the forum category? At the moment, its added as another forum, so we have to manually change this as child to the bbpress forum category for group created in Step #2.
Thanks again for your meticulous help & instructions abv.
@ray, i tested this again: enabled buddypress forum in the component setup, then reinstalled forum using existing bbpress installation setting ***.
I created a private group with forum enabled and posted a topic in this group forum. I then logout, used other browser to view the wpmu forum (bbpress), and I can still see the topic posted in the bppress that should have been a private post. When logged in as another user (non-group member), i can reply to that topic! That’s the privacy issue that I was talking abt.
*** would selecting new installation of bbpress overwrite my existing bbpress ?
The obvious choice for me during that was to keep the existing installation; as bbpress was already installed in the same wpmu db (not an external db). I have abt 70,000 posts in the bbpress forum so most users are using them.
I would like the group discussion forums to be only accessible to group members.
@ray, thanks for info; when i integrated wpmu and bbpress, bbpress was set to be in the same dbase as WPMU, and the bbpress was already with over 70k posts (not a new install). So when bp was installed, it’s also in the same db used by wpmu and bbpress. Even if I installed bp with the bbpress forum that came with it; wouldnt it be still using the bb tables that are already there in the existing db?
Should i install two different bbpress with separate db so I can solve this privacy issues? Its a bit confusing to me now on the whole architecture of bp+bbpress and bp group forums. Pls help.
Ercih, if you set your bp groups to be PRIVATE, the forum in that group is actually using bbpress; and will be visible to users that go directly to bbpress itself — they can read, post new topics, edit, delete their topics — just like a normal bbpress stuffs that really defeats the purpose of having a privacy option for BP Groups, i.e. those that is setup with forum.
I hope I am completely wrong; but this is what I am seeing with my wpmu2.8.6+bp1.1.3+bbpress1.0.2
I think this capability is something important that is missing in bp groups. The concept of group and its integration with bbpress are certainly expanding the users interaction within bp groups; yet the privacy of groups discussion is not assured.
Firstly, is there a quick fix to autohide all bp groups forum from bbpress forum? I have not enabled group forum support because of this issue; and currently only using a separate install of bbpress integrated with wordpress as a place for general forum discussion. Hiding the whole forum is certainly not a totally acceptable solution especially when there are thousands of existing topics that are already there and not associated with any groups.
Secondly, what is the code to check if the logged user is a member of a group with forum id that can be done from bbpress with deep integration; this could be added in bbpress to limit access to group topics where the logged in user is not a member.
@gerikg, did u get the fb avatar to show up in bbpress?
I used the deep integration + extremely crude FB connect integration from newbie’s tutorial that suits me at http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/Facebook_Connect_Tutorial1
I then added a filter for bp_core_get_avatar to call the fbconnect_replace_avatar function which was already in the buddypress-fbconnect plugin; of course i put this code as a plugin under my-plugin. Since all my bb profile edit / login re rerouted to bp, i dont really worry abt the extra fbconnect login stuffs. So far, the fb avatar works ok in bbpress in addition to normal user avatar set in bp. If someone could put this as a plugin for bb, would be great.
the latest bp1.1.3 should resolve this. the only issue now is that forum post from bp forum now shows up as “Posted -1 year ago” in bbpress. any hint to resolve this?
received this 4hrs ago from babyzin, a day after hakam’s, and i do look quite ok:
how are you,
i hope that all is ok, as is my pleasure to contact you after viewing your profile at (buddypress.org) which really interest me in having communication with you if you will have the desire with me ,
here is my email as i will be waiting to hear from you,
gerikg — this works! thanks!!
now, if anyone could share how to make sure facebook avatar is showing up in bbpress (using BP-facebook connect) /
The group component can be disabled; but how to only allow PRIVATE GROUPS where the groups forums are also not created in bbpress (and visible) ?
Edit: Just noticed that there is a plugin to do this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bpgroups/
This works ok for me in bbpress front-end. however in bbpress admin, i actually had to manually add all the referenced #wp-admin css style in bb-admin/style.css in order to make this works.
This works ok if you are not using bbpress: if you are, the date posted in group forum will be reflected as “Posted -1 years ago” in bbpress post! With this, the whole post navigation in bbpress will start with earliest first, and first post at the last page (which is 1yr in future).
Arghh.. can someone help.
hi all, was experimenting with my new integrated bp/bb site and have this question. I created a group in bp with forum/wire enabled; and i could see this being created in bbpress as well.
In bbpress admin, i deleted a forum and moved all its contents (topics and posts) to the newly created forum (and group in bp). All the posts were moved fine and I can read/edit/post them in bbpress. However, in bp group forum; i can only see the topics (with information that the topic has x posts etc etc); but these topics are really not linked to any posts i.e. the link is just pointing to http://mysite.com/groups/groupname/topic// ?? No links.
It this a bp limitation (not properly converting topics/posts moved from bbpress to the newly created bp groups? )? How to fix this?
