What is Topic View in bbPress Forums?

Topic views are a very useful bbPress feature allowing you to list topics outside the forums based on different criteria or search parameters: activity, freshness… bbPress has few default views, but it also allows adding of new views. It is important to know that Topic Views are implemented by the bbPress, and GD bbPress Toolbox Pro or GD bbPress Tools Free plugin can only register new views, they can’t do much else related to views.

Default bbPress topic views are:

  • Most popular topics: this will list topics by most replies.
  • Topics with no replies: this will list topics with no replies.

Views work on all topics, regardless of their forum, and the list displayed will contain only topics ordered by the view default criteria (they don’t have easy options to reorder topics or filter by forum).

Can I translate GD bbPress Tools plugin to my language?

Yes. POT file is provided as a base for translation in the root folder for each plugin. Translation files should go into languages directory, and WordPress must be set to your language to load the file. As an alternative, translation file can go into wp-content/languages/plugins directory.

The file name for translated and compiled MO file must be the same as POT file with the addition of language code: {plugin-name}-{language-code}.mo.

You can check out this for translating plugins using POEdit program:

Does GD bbPress Tools plugin works with WordPress MultiSite installations?

Why BBCodes are not working?

There are few reasons for BBCodes not working:

  1. You have disabled BBCodes in the plugin.
  2. You have disabled some of the BBCodes in the plugin.
  3. You are using some 3rd party plugin that is causing problems.

The plugin that is often causing problems with BBCodes is ‘bbPress Advanced Statistics’, and this plugin will disable all Shortcodes/BBCodes by default. Either configure it properly to allow shortcodes, or remove it.

Why GD bbPress Tools plugin's JavaScript files are not loaded?

All Dev4Press plugins and addons require jQuery. But, they will work only if the jQuery is loaded with the WordPress proper Enqueue method. If you are replacing jQuery that comes with WordPress with some other version loaded from other location, my plugins will not function properly, and that goes the same for most of the other WordPress plugins that depend on the proper way for loading jQuery.

Click on Quote button doesn't add quoted content?

This happens if the plugin’s JavaScript is not loaded. Make sure that both CSS and JavaScript options are enabled. If that doesn’t help, make sure to enable ‘Always Include’ option too.

Some features not working with BuddyPress group forums?

This happens if the plugin’s JavaScript is not loaded. Make sure that both CSS and JavaScript options are enabled and ‘Always Include’ option is also enabled.

Some BuddyPress features break when I use BuddyPress Nuovo templates?

The problem is caused by the Italic BBCode due to the conflict with the Underscore templates system BuddyPress uses. There are two ways to solve this:

  • You can disable Italic BBCode (Forums -> Tools -> BBCodes -> Disable BBCodes) or,
  • You can limit BBCodes to the bbPress content only (Forums -> Tools -> BBCodes -> bbPress Only). If you do this, BBCodes will work only with bbPress topics, replies and forums.
Why when quoted, emojis (or smileys) are displayed broken?

This happens because WordPress by default is replacing all emojis with images. This is done so that emojis would work in old browsers. But, the JavaScript used for this purpose can slow down the website, and it is messing with the page loading only to show very old and outdated images instead of the pretty emojis most browsers have today.

The only way to avoid the problem with quotes and emojis is to disable WordPress emoji replacing. To do that, install one of many plugins available to disable this WordPress ‘feature’, like Disable Emoji from WordPress.org repository.

Does GD bbPress Tools plugin works with BuddyBoss Platform?

We do not support BuddyBoss Platform integration for any of our bbPress related plugins.

Dev4Press plugins for bbPress right now all require bbPress 2.6.2 or newer version, and old 2.5 versions of bbPress are no longer supported! BuddyBoss uses very outdated bbPress 2.5.12 (from 2017), and this means that Dev4Press plugins for bbPress will not allow activation with bbPress 2.5.x or BuddyBoss.

Even if the BuddyBoss gets updated to bbPress 2.6 or newer, we have no plans of supporting BuddyBoss with our plugins due to the changes they made to bbPress making proper support impossible.

This FAQ will be updated when something with bbPress or BuddyBoss changes in the future.

TLDR: Dev4Press plugins for bbPress can’t be used with the BuddyBoss platform.

Can I translate GD bbPress Tools plugin to my language?

All Dev4Press free and lite plugins can be translated via WordPress.org and their translation services. Each plugin on WordPress.org has support for translation, and you can get to it through the plugin Developer panel. To translate plugins on WordPress.org, you need a WordPress.org account. But, if you want to handle translations on your own, each plugin has a POT file with the list of all translation strings. More information here:
