Re: [New Plugin] BuddyPress Group Forum Extras



Hi Etiviti!

Thanks a lot for this – when I’m able to add the BBcode and buttons, it will be great!

I still have not managed to do it so your guidance is much appreciated.

Since I’m a newbie, let me explain step by step what I did:

1. After uploading the zip file and extracting on my /home1/fromvict/public_html/comunidade/wp-content/plugins BuddyPress directory, I activated the plugins.

2. After activation, I clicked On BuddyPress -> Forum Extras and followed the instructions to edit the theme on /home1/fromvict/public_html/comunidade/wp-content/themes/bp-default/groups/single/forum and add the ” <?php do_action( ‘bp_forum_extras_topic_links’ ) ?> ” code as instructed.

3. This gives me the successful message:


BBCode enabled.

This plugin will convert bbcode to html prior to database updates and is recommend for external bbPress installs.

You may enable _ck_’s bbcode buttons via the BBCode Settings page but this might conflict with other textarea editors installed (tinymce, markitup) on the forum textareas.


4. When I click on the bullet item just below, “BBCode”, I get the following:


Group Forums BBCode

BBcode Buttons

Fatal error: Call to undefined function bb_get_option() in /home1/fromvict/public_html/comunidade/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-group-forum-extras/bp-forum-extras-bbcode-admin.php on line 29


Any idea of what may be wrong? Thanks!

p.s. Just a (hopefully) constructive feedback: as a newbie, it took me some time to figure out that the groups/single/forum was located in the address I pointed out in step 2. Maybe other users like me have a similar experience. In that case, it would be good to have one simple phrase like “you have now to find where the theme is installed, generally it is a themes/bp-default/ folder under your BuddyPress installation”
