No it doesn’t work (I just restored the database from backup). Instead of showing a list of discussion threads (sorted by freshness) it shows Group forums as the root (which people can post in) and all the group forums.
[bbp-forum-index] in a new page also gets the same result
Have disabled all plugins but bbPress and Buddypress to no avail. bbPress 2.3 update doesn’t help.
I tried resetting the bbPress forums from Tools/Forums to try from scratch and it’s worse – lost all the Group forum links.
Anyone can help? Why am I seeing a Forums page like this instead of the discussion list?
Some things I like about bbPress 2.2.4 and BP 1.7 – support of BP Group forums and the ability to search not only topics but also forum text, rich text input, plenty of bbPress enhancements eg quotes, signatures etc.
However only one thing is holding me back from implementing this in my main forum, and that is the Forums page does not display the discussion listing
I posted my issue here:
Migrating Legacy Group forums to bbPress 2.2.4
You can see the problematic page in my forum here
I just edited the Forums page and placed the code in it
I have disabled all plugins and used the default BP theme but still no go
BTW, I followed the bbPress installation guide here:
This last step is driving me nuts so until it is solved in this minor forum of mine, I can’t implement bbPress in my other major site
the buggy page if anyone wants to take a look is malaysianmedicineDOTcomSLASHforums
Now that we are on 1.7 and bbPress integration, does any signature plugin work? What if users are still on legacy Group forums?
Congratulations to the BB team for a great job done!
Just tried on another forum of mine with all plugins deactivated (except BP) and only the Default BP theme
Tried to post the drug name “Plavix” in the thread and failed

Thank you for your work in developing this great plugin!
@dwenaus the plugin has a bug, causing video embedding to fail on forum posts but not the activity stream
Thanks for the confirmation that it should work out of the box. I was puzzled why recently it didn’t work for forum posts but activity streams only.
I did the usual disable all plugins and test one by one in case of a plugin conflict.
I can confirm that the Buddypress Rate Forum Posts plugin is the culprit
After disabling this, video embedding now works. Will post feedback to the author.
Hi @shawn38 – it’s Group forums. I am using the latest BP 1.6.1
The video will embed in the activity stream but not in forum posts
I have tried the defunct oembed plugin but it doesn’t work now.
But PollDaddy won’t work for Updates or Forum posts?
Hmm my bad. On another PC the search works so perhaps it is the Chrome browser cache.
On a related note, one can only search the Forum topic and not the whole thread. Will this be a feature for a future version? I hope so!
It is searchable
- members (by Name not username), groups, forums
The solution is to install the plugin
BP Unread Posts
Hope this will help others
Bump. Perhaps this can be added in a future BP update or a plugin? Thanks
