I’m creating a custom threaded forum view. From there users can post or reply, so I’ve created my own reply dialoge in a modal window. I’ve got it posting the reply to the database fine and now I’m at the wp_postmeta end of things setting that up to input the proper metadata.
_bbp_activity_id is where I’m wondering. What is this? I see what looks to be a sequential set of numbers for the value.
The other meta items seem pretty self explanatory.
Yeah bbp is usually the prefix used for bbPress functions, so when you see it, think of bbPress. BuddyPress uses bp instead.
Also, just to add, when you see a prefix preceded with an underscore _ such as _bbp_activity_id, it usually means that particular function or variable is intended for internal use, and isn’t really part of any API offered. However, it is just a convention and not all plugins stick to it.
