bbPress String Swap

In bbPress 2.2+, change Forums Archive Title (forums main page), some Breadcrumbs arguments, User Role display names plus a few other Forums Strings.

Simply Changing Text Strings

This small and lightweight plugin lets you change the Title of the Forums root view. Plus, I added 3 options for some important (as of my opinion) bbPress Breadcrumb parameters. Additionally, you can change the 4 built-in bbPress Forum User Role names. And finally, I've added 5 other important (again, as of my opinion) forum strings used in various Forum, Topic and Reply views. -- Change all 23 strings easily on the bbPress main settings page!

Main Benefits of this Plugin

  • Fine tune your strings and display for YOUR FORUM USE CASE and used theme/templates!
  • Quick and easily adjust settings via bbPress Main Settings page.
  • Change strings independently from translation files.
  • Change strings as often as you want to :-)

Important Note Regarding Themes/ Plugins

  • If your current theme or other plugins change appropiate filters this could lead to not display any or all changes made by this plugin (though it's not harmful!).
  • Some themes (especially bbPress compatible ones from 'ThemeForest' marketplace) come with own templates for bbPress and also change other display things (for example breadcrumb behavior) and functions... This could also lead to not display any or all changes made by this plugin. You then have to make the wished changes manually via the theme's templates or simply just call the support of its creator for further advise.

Localization

  • English (default) - always included
  • German (de_DE) - always included
  • .pot file (bbpress-string-swap.pot) for translators is also always included :)
  • Easy plugin translation platform via GlotPress tool: Translate "bbPress String Swap"...
