Ahhh, gotcha’. So it would seem that we have a few that were imported before we made those fields required and so if they don’t have them entered it will default to the uid.
Not sure I understand – are you saying you have an update that fixes this?
In order for formatting to be correct in the body of the emails, we had to write html (breaks, paragraphs, etc.) into the code of the editor. Otherwise the entire email was one big paragraph.
Just fyi… that may have been your intent.
The last subject line to come in mangled included the phrase, “Domino’s Pizza”. But it was displayed as:
EDIT: Okay, typing in the HTML here still shows it correctly, lol.
Thanks, Millan – didn’t see the article.
Hate to seem daft but…
Option is on the Settings -> Topics and Settings -> Replies panels and it is called ‘Disable Mention filter’.
This path doesn’t seem to exist in the plugin.
Ahh, stays checked. That makes sense. Thanks for the clarification.
Sorry for my ignorance in how bbpress functions by default but…
“3/7. GDPR is for EU citizens, so if you have visitors from EU, GDPR affects you. It will not be easy to enforce outside of EU, but I don’t see any reason to risk something because of the options that shouldn’t be forced on users in the first place.”
Is the “Notify me of follow-up replies via email” feature that I see here in your forums just default behavior for the forums? That’s really what I’m looking to have auto-checked when someone responds to a post and it seems you have that on in here. No?
As a side note… your forums are SUPER fast. Even if you have to answer privately, can you share with me what type of hosting environment or server tweaks you’ve done to achieve this? I find that ours are 3x slower than yours.
1/2 – thanks, I’ll check this out. Not sure if it’s additional $’s or if it’s included in the kit but as I’d like less plugins or at least less potentially conflicting plugins, that’s probably ideal.
“better theme support because it is displayed outside of the bbPress own templates.” What does that mean?
3/7 – totally understand GDPR. Not quite as much of an issue in the US just yet but we are observing it. I would like the default “subscribe when replying” feature, however, as we often get complaints that people didn’t click subscribe and therefore aren’t getting notified. Don’t you have the “notify me of replies” auto-ticked in these forums?
4 – great!
5 – Good call, but won’t this mean that any time there is a bbpress update we’ll have to go back in and change that? Do I understand that correctly?
6 – Thanks!
I did find it in the bbP Toolkit plugin once you responded here. I appreciate how quickly you respond.
There are a few things in bbP Toolkit that we use:
- Getting rid of the “Home” text
- Replacing the “forums” text with something else
- Auto tick the Notify me of follow-up replies via email (so activate subscription to every topic you reply to)
- Redirecting user profiles for non-logged in users
- Replace the text “Oh bother! No topics were found here!” with custom text
- Displaying bbPress search form above every single topic and forum
- Subscribing new users automatically to select forums
Are any of these things that I’m missing in your plugin or that you have planned? I’d love to just move to your more comprehensive solution and remove the other if possible.
I don’t have the email issue any longer. In fact, I think I misdiagnosed the issue initially because we noticed it in email. Email was just sending the entire message – which is what was showing the html tags. So it was the posting issue, not the email issue, we needed to resolve.
Even when I disable all but your plugin, I can’t get the tinymce editor to work correctly unless it’s only using bbcodes. Even when disabling other plugins completely.
So right now, we’re stuck with bbcodes versus html (where they just highlight, click “B”, and content is made to appear bold, not wrapped in tags.)
Found the disable feature and ticked the boxes of the ones we didn’t want showing!
I would much prefer the regular HTML editor style but the bbcodes will have to work for now. I know we have a few users that get confused when it’s not the same “MS Office” type of experience they are used to.
Hide BBCodes was already checked and we still have these all visible.
Okay, found the issue!
If we have both the TinyMCE editor in the Toolbox AND the default forum TinyMCE editor enabled, we get visible HTML code in the posts when someone creates a message on the forums.
With the default MCE editor turned off, we get just the editor that is seen here on these forums and NO code. So it works great if only one is enabled.
My only question now is how I can remove some of these options in this editor. I don’t need the Heading, Forum, Topic, Reply buttons in the editor, for example.
BTW – I had to reactivate bbP Toolkit because it just has too many features that I’d love to see in your plugin. I’d certainly pay more for yours if you could implement features like the subscriptions management, breadcrumb management, replacing default verbiage, etc. My recommendation would be to go through that plugin and look at what you could incorporate. Lots of very useful things in there but I worry that it might conflict with yours somehow so it would be nice to have it all in one.
But it does not currently allow me to get rid of the “forum” in the breadcrumb, right?
Getting rid of “home” is great, but I need the forum text changed more than that.
That’s disappointing, but thank you for the quick response.
I’m just following up on this to close the loop.
It would seem that we have a setting somewhere that is causing this in the posting process and that it has nothing to do with email. I think that it might be a conflict between the various TinyMCE toggle options in multiple places that is generating this. We have bbpToolkit as well as bbPress Toolbox and it seems like there are a lot of places to tell the system to enable the editor.
Thanks. We’ll dig around a bit and see what we can find.
I have one other HTML plugin enabled but it’s the WP SMTP plugin that allows for the server to send emails from WP.
We used to have another plugin that was related to email installed but it’s since been removed. Is it possible that this is some fragment left over from that one, somehow?January 31, 2018 at 4:27 pm in reply to: After installation there are no admin area options – only button to complete reg #57872
I’m on WPEngine and use the cache service they provide as well as a plugin called Autoptimize.
Are you aware of any issues with these?
