HTML tags in group forums
The appearance of various tags like p and /p on your forum posts used to indicate a problem with your xmllib library on your server. Read this post for information on the bug and how to fix it.
However, I believe the buddypress-enable.php plugin in earlier versions of BP ( 1.0 and 1.0.1 ), was meant to fix that issue. But, for other reasons, this helper plugin is still required to make bbPress function properly in 1.0.3. So, make sure that you overwrite the existing version of the buddypress-enable.php file with the one that comes with 1.0.3 (found in /buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress-plugins/).
Also, make sure you read and follow the instructions in the installation-readme.txt file found in /bp-forums/.
With regard to XMLRPC, going forward, the communication between bbPress and BP v1.1+ will no longer depend on XMLRPC.
Hey Jeff, this is kind of moving a little off-topic, but how would existing BP users with bbPress installed migrate to the new system for v1.1?
We’re using bbPress for main , general discussions as well as BP group forums.
So when BP 1.1 gets released and I want to keep the existing bbPress install, but want to use the updated BP forum code… how would that work?
I’m guessing I would have to rely on some form of legacy compatibility and keep on using XMLRPC? Or leave the existing bbPress install alone and use the new BP forum code (which is some form of embedded instance of bbPress within BP, if I understand correctly)?
Thanks Jeff for help
i added that plugin and followed the steps once again everything is good
But i cant get it to fix.The problem is on bbpress side topics are showing perfectly fine but its in the groups that tags are showing
r-a-y; that’s a question for a new topic. If I could move posts I’d start one for you, but I can’t, so if you make a new thread I’ll repost this response into it later…
The best way is for you to duplicate your database and site, and perform an upgrade using the current trunk, and see what issues you run into. This is also needed for valuable testing / bug reporting as necessary.
XML-RPC BBPress has been removed, totally. Again, install a test installation of trunk – on the Forums Setup page of the admin menu, there’s an option to either set up a new installation or to use an existing database.
I tried this for the first time last weekend, and setting up a new forum installation was as easy as pressing one button – it’s amazing.
The upgrade button I haven’t tried yet, but it requires you to put in a path for your existing BBPress bb-config.php file. As long as you are using the latest version of BBPress, I can’t think of any issues – possibilities are the server not being able to read the files in a different folder, but if your server is working with the XML-RPC at the moment, then that’s not going to be an issue.
So, “how would that work?” AWESOMELY.
My post was off-topic; you’re right, I’ve copied and pasted my above post and created a new thread:
Feel free to delete my previous post now (and this one as well)!
Perhaps Burt or John will have a different take on this, but since you have the helper plugin installed and are still having this issue, then it could be an issue with an outdated libxml library.
Which version of libxml2 and PHP is your server running?
If it is not what is recommended in that article I linked to in my first post, then you might want to upgrade and see if that solves the problem.
Yep. Xml libraries on Linux are broken if olds, this is an old parsing bug..
I’ts a libxml2 stuff, be sure to have everything updated, i had the same problem
