    Editing BP Forum Tags (Not a stand alone bb install)

    Hi there I have BP 1.1.3 and WPMU 2.9.1 running and I am wondering the following.

    Is there no way as an admin to edit bp forum/topic tags? I have a user who created a long as tang and it has messed the layout all up. Right now it looks like the only way to solve this problem is to delete the topic and even then I’m not sure it will remove the tag.

    If there is no way to this I think its a huge oversize. Please let there be a way!

    Any help and/or advice would be appreciated.

    Hi avim,

    You’re right: erasing the topic wouldn’t erase the attached tags. So i’m affraid you have to do this manually.

    Go to your DB and search the forum tables containing “term” in their name. You will find 3 different xx__bb_term_xxx.

    You will also have to look in the side wide activity table:

    wp_bp_activity_user_activity_cached

    search in “component-action” for “new_forum_post” and/or “new_forum_topic”

    If you use phpMyAdmin or similar it is easy to modify or erase the unwanted strings.
