Which version of bbpress to use?

  • zenseeker


    I’m using WPMU 2.6.5 and on the bbpress forums it says the stable version of bbpess won’t work with 2.6. Over at the wpmu forums they say that the alpha version is working with 2.6. Alpha sounds scary to me, what with Buddypress still being beta. God, I feel like a Greek.

    Anyway, which to use:

    The latest stable version of bbPress is “Brubeck” version or,

    The latest test build of the unstable version of bbPress is 1.0-Alpha-2

    I’m using trunk r654, which probably won’t be the latest by the time I post this. Can’t wait till this baby’s released and marinates for awhile. lol

    And, of course, my site is nowhere near ready for prime time.

    Well, if you want the bp forums for groups then you have to be running at least bbpress 1.0 alpha 2 and mu 2.7 trunk. The alpha part on bbpress isn’t as scary as it sounds. The release cycle on bbpress is pretty slow and it seems to work just fine.

    Until yesterday I was running bbpress 1a2 and mu 2.6.2 with integration turned on. Now I’m at bb r1860 (1.0 alpha 2+), bp r654, mu 1571 (2.7). Today I get to turn on group forums.

    You’re not the only one who isn’t ready. Launch date 1/1/09. Minimum 18hr days until then. :D



    Thanks for the clarification. I didn’t know that mu had a 2.7 yet. I’ll try and google for it, but can you post where the trunk is just in case I don’t find it? All these betas and alphas and trunks, I feel like I’m walking a tight wire. But, all it takes is balance, right? I’m just happy to find something that keeps getting closer to what I’m looking for in a social site.

    If you don’t want to mess with trunks, then wait a week or so until WPMU 2.7 is out. Then you can download that, and use the bbPress 1.0 Alpha zip download.

    @zenseeker, ok here’s the mu trunk link:

    Balance? Balance?! What balance? Alphas, betas and trunks (all together now) Oh, My!

    I’m getting goofy. Gotta lay off the caffeine.



    @zenseeker What do you mean with “God I feel like a greek”?

    This thread has not seen activity for more than 4 months. It is doubtful you’ll get a response.

    Here’s my guess at what he meant to say. He most likely made a typo. He probably meant to type “geek”. But, if you need to know, I suggest private messaging him.

    I’m closing this thread as it is not relevant anymore.
