BBpress and rate posts? (7 posts)

    I must confess that despite having a reasonable knowledge of wordpress I'm fairly new to buddypress, and therefore don't fully understand the relationship between buddypress and bbpress.

    I've installed this plugin at http://www.punknews.co.uk but can't see any of the features, is that because I'm using BBpress (or at least I think I am)?

    if you are using the default buddypress theme, then you should see little thumb up and down icons. however if you're not using the default theme you need to add the appropriate action hooks so they will show.

    ah, the plugin was build when buddypress only used group forums, not site-wide forums so that could be the issue. I'll take a look.

    There seems to be a bug with buddypress when you install group forums and then try to uninstall, and install site-wide forums - it won't work. under the hood, two very different things are going on. Sorry i can't help more.

    Hi Deryk,

    Would you mind stating in FAQs that your plugin does not work with site-wide forums and bbPress? This will save people, like me, time from trying to figure out why it's not working!

    Thanks for creating such a nice plugin.
