Trouble Uploading when Using bbPress Shortcodes

For instance, if I click on the forum name in the breadcrumb links to browse the page with the following, the plugin works:

    That’s because bbPress is coded the way it is. My plugin needs to know some things about the forum, topic or reply forms before adding things, and when you use shortcodes, bbPress is not setting any of the things the same way as for normal forum pages.

    I will try to solve this, but I have no idea when exactly.

    I was just wondering if this has been fixed or if there is a workaround that can be used in the meantime. I love this plugin, there is nothing comparable out there but uploads error out on some pages and work fine on others.

    I have few ideas I will try with next version, but I don’t have a ETA right now.

    Thank you… I would just stop using bbPress shortcdes and arrainge the site a little differently but unfortunately I have to use them due to the way the client wants the site.
