Does the 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 BuddyBoss uses very outdated bbPress 2.5.12 (from 2017), which means that Dev4Press plugins for bbPress will not allow activation with bbPress 2.5.x (and because of the old version, it will not be active with BuddyBoss also). On top of that, BuddyBoss has made significant changes to the bbPress they are using, so a lot of stuff is not compatible anymore with the standalone bbPress plugin. Also, BuddyBoss uses BuddyPress 4.3, released in 2019 (the current standalone BuddyPress is 11.1.0 in May 2023), and again, their version of BuddyPress is significantly changed from the standalone BuddyPress, making the compatibility a huge issue.

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.

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

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, messing with the page loading only to show very old and outdated images instead of the pretty emojis most browsers have today.

Disabling WordPress emoji replacement is the only way to avoid the problem with quotes and emojis. To do that, install one of many plugins available to disable this WordPress ‘feature,’ like Disable Emoji from the WordPress.org repository. Or, if you use GD bbPress Toolbox Pro version 7.1 or newer, you can use the Features -> Tweaks -> Processing Content for Display -> Disable Smilies Conversion and set it to 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 (bbPress Toolbox -> BBCodes ->┬áDisable BBCodes) or,
  • You can limit BBCodes to the bbPress content only (bbPress Toolbox -> Features -> BBCodes -> bbPress Only). If you do this, BBCodes will work only with bbPress topics, replies, and forums.

Why 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.

Why I am getting errors related to missing database tables?

Errors like this point to the problem with the plugin installation process when additional database tables need to be created. If that has not happened, it points to a problem with database access or something related to the server. Still, it might be simply WordPress-related issues preventing the normal update.

To check this out, open the bbPress Toolbox menu -> Tools -> Recheck and Update. This panel will recheck and recreate tables in possible. If not, you will see the error messages. If that happens, you need to create tables manually (via phpMyAdmin, for instance).

Here is the SQL schema for all database tables plugin needs: Database Schema.

How can I show (or hide) forum statistics information?

The plugin can add quick statistics overview information to the forum’s main index page. This contains various information: online users and different counts, and it can contain more things through editing of the template. You can enable or disable this block (or select user roles that can see it) by using options in the bbPress Toolbox -> Features -> Forums Index -> Forums statistics overview.

Where can I see all attachment files?

All files attached in the forum are saved into WordPress Media Library. But, if you want to see only attachments, you can’t do that directly, since Library show all files saved. Toolbox plugin has own panel called ‘Attachments’ where you can see only files uploaded as attachments. You have there: thumbnail preview, name of upload, topic and forum where the file is attached and date and time. This grid shows all files. You can delete or unattach files. If file is unattached, it will be removed from topic/reply it was uploaded to, but it will be still in the media library for some later use.

Can I translate 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:
