BBPress fails when Facebook 'like' plugin is working (22 posts)

    Just noticed this the other day, im using the latest version of WordPress with Simple Facebook Connect plugin and BBPress. When SFC or the majority of Facebook 'Like' plugins are running along side BBPress, BBPress stops working properly.

    Check out my forum i've been testing the past two days

    http://www.streetphire.co.uk/?forum=general

    thats meant to have 5 sub sections to it and DOES when the Facebook plugins are disabled. Its either BBPress or loads of Facebook plugins have the a conflict somewhere..

    Maybes someone could look into this

    Cheers

    Mingle Forum also fails, it looks like there is definitely a conflict going on amongst the code

    The problem is other plugins hijacking the custom post types and not returning proper results on filtered values. You'll want to contact the author of the other plugins and have them test their code with bbPress, and anything that uses custom post types.

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-plugin-conflict-with-sfc-like-button-forums-dont-display

    I started a thread on the bbPress forum about it.

    Otto does the SFC plugin, he's always been pretty adamant that his plugin is not doing anything improperly. I'll try to run this one by him.

    The like button doesn't interfere with any of my other CPT based stuff,.....

    Updated bbPress to Beta 3, still no compatibility. I posted up a comment on Otto's site for the plugin, and added the tags for his plugin to this thread. I'd love to get the 2 playing together nicely. I'm really likeing bbPress, and have gotten pretty used to using SFC, so it'd be ideal to have them cohabitate

    Have you tried the newer SFC? I'm not developing the old one anymore because it'll probably stop working in September.

    If you can get the same issue here, I'll investigate it.

    Nope, I'm running 0.25.

    I will give it a go at work tomorrow and see what I get.
    Thanks for the recommendation!

    OK, I have the new-sfc version installed, and the newest bbPress

    Same behaviour. Any of the forum views based on CPTs will not display with the Like button option checked.

    I did toggle the like button on and off to test, it is that module only

    Appreciate your time Otto, SFC is looking good, I like the module integration

    I'm not able to reproduce this. I installed bbPress and the new SFC on a test site and get the same results regardless of Like being checked or not.

    How can I reproduce this issue?

    BTW, the main "Forums" listing is empty regardless of what I seem to do. Nothing displays there even with SFC completely disabled.

    This is my test Forum with 2.0 beta 3 of BBPress installed. Im currently using v1.0.1 of WP Buttons and everything is working okay, apart from a couple of formatting issues.

    Im going to try now and enable SFC and see if the forum still works and let you know.

    PS Otto, where can I get the new version of your SFC from, is it a newer one than whats on wordpress.org version 0.25?

    My Test Forum:

    So as soon as I enabled the SFC Like module the forum's stop working, just a blank page with the forum title on it. Its definitely something to do with the SFC Like plugin because as I mentioned I have other Like Plugin's working along side the forum but SFC is by far the best i've found so far.

    Cheers

    Yeah, dunno. Maybe it was one of the changes I put in today, but I can't make it happen.

    I have my test site running with bbPress (and the twentyten child theme) and the new SFC and the Like button (and the Share button) both activated and showing up on the Posts and Pages, and everything seems to work fine. Like button shows up on posts/pages (but not topics/forums and such). The forums show up, sub-forums show up, topics show up, replies show up.. Even the FB meta stuff in the header is correct with the forum and topic views.

    Nothing wrong with it that I can see. Make sure you're running both the latest bbPress and SFC.

    Version 0.25 of SFC will be the last one that uses the old Connect libraries, and if it's not working with bbPress then I'm not surprised. That version will very likely stop working in September when FB removes some older functionality.

    The latest one in development is version 0.999, which is just the prequel to version 1.0. I'm currently actively developing it and adding the features and such it needs to be a good replacement. It uses the newer Graph API and Javascript SDK's from Facebook. You can find a working, but incomplete and probably buggy, version of it here:

    http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/simple-facebook-connect/branches/new-sfc/

    It is the only one receiving any development at the moment. SFC 0.25 is a dead end.

    Thanks Otto, I will also try this out later in the week and see if I can get it working. I'll let you know :)

    Hmm... I wonder what is going on on my end.

    Twentyten theme, killed all plugins

    0.25 and 0.999 version of SFC tested against newest (beta 3 I think) version of bbPress.

    SFC works perfectly, no problems there.
    The forum works fine on its own (and when SFC is active, except the like button)

    I can view forums index / single forums / topics / replies just fine on bbPress until I turn on the Like button

    Once I do that, I can view the forums index, but when I click onto a single forum all I get is the title and description of the forum. Nothing else shows.

    Here's my forum index which works fine:
    http://voodoopress.com/forums/

    And a single forum which does not:
    http://voodoopress.com/forums/section/general-wordpress-talk/

    I'm not sure what else to check...... but I'm glad to know everything is working for you Otto, at least that gives me some hope....

    "0.25 and 0.999 version of SFC"... Not sure what that means.

    Delete 0.25 completely. It's dead, Jim. I'm not changing it, I'm not developing it any further.

    Only test with 0.999. It no longer has all the sub-plugins, for example.

    And I still can't reproduce this.

    Here's my test site. You can see the Like buttons on it.
    http://ottodestruct.com/wptest/

    Here's my forum on that site:
    http://ottodestruct.com/wptest/forum/test-forum/

    The like buttons even appear on the sub forums there (something I need to eliminate, actually).

    "0.25 and 0.999 version of SFC"... Not sure what that means.

    Just meant that I had .25 installed, and had the problem. Deleted it and installed .999, had the same problem.

    I see everything good on your end. So it's definitely something on my end. Have no idea what, but I'll have some tinkering to do.

    I do appreciate you taking the time to test things out.

    Well, I never did find out what the issue was. But on upgrading to WP 3.2, the issue has resolved (didn't change anything else yet.... same child theme, same plugins).

    So that's cool!!

    OK, It's broken on me again. After upgrading to WP 3.2 the 2 plugins worked, however I discovered that the auto publish wasn't working. I was using the .999 version of SFC

    Plugin Name: Simple Facebook Connect
    Plugin URI: http://ottopress.com/wordpress-plugins/simple-facebook-connect/
    Description: Makes it easy for your site to use Facebook Connect, in a wholly modular way.
    Author: Otto
    Version: 0.999
    Author URI: http://ottodestruct.com
    License: GPL2
    
        Copyright 2009-2011  Samuel Wood  (email : otto@ottodestruct.com)
    
    function sfc_version() {
    	return '1.0';
    }

    So with that version, both SFC and bbPress coexisted nicely. But, no autopublish, even though everything was authorized properly.

    SO, I grabbed the trunk version on svn

    <?php
    /*
    Plugin Name: Simple Facebook Connect - Base
    Plugin URI: http://ottopress.com/wordpress-plugins/simple-facebook-connect/
    Description: Makes it easy for your site to use Facebook Connect, in a wholly modular way.
    Author: Otto
    Version: 0.26

        Copyright 2009-2010  Samuel Wood  (email : otto@ottodestruct.com)
    function sfc_version() {
    	return '0.26';
    }

    And now, my auto publish works again, but I'm back to my bbPress forum not displaying with the like button active.

    I would love to have a forum, and a like button, and auto publishing too.

    I'm a greedy guy!!

    Any ideas what could be the issue?

    (I edited teh above headers obviously.... just wanted to post the essential bits for differentiation)

    OK, all is well. Otto pushed through an update on the new sfc branch in svn. BBPress and the Like button play together perfectly, and the auto publishing works.
