[resolved] WPBB and WP 3.5 broken (5 posts)

    WPBB will not create a viewable page. The page is created but empty. Making changes to the title in the settings will not make the change live in the menu.

    Well, it's not broken. From what I could gather from your post I think that the template file hasn't been copied to your theme directory. This has been answered numerous times on this forum. You'll have to copy wp-bulletin-board/wpbb-template.php to your current theme folder. You're right about that though, it won't change the name of the page that it utilizes. You'll just have to manually change the name of the page from the Pages page.

    It would have been helpful for me and probably everyone else who asked the same question if you state somewhere obvious that you need a kluge to make your plugin work. I looked again and still don't see where you say to move files.

    No matter, I have started using Mingle and it works flawlessly.

    It has been answered many times, one was directly beneath your post: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/no-page-template-is-made?replies=9

    I will add this to the FAQ though. I just haven't been able to release a fix for this because most of the time it creates the file flawlessly and others it does not, unfortunately those people haven't provided a link to their website or got into contact with me so I haven't been able to find out why it's happened, you included.

    Might I suggest that if you run into problems with the Mingle plugin that you don't rate their plugin as broken before contacting the author or other people providing support? It is very damaging, especially to people providing free support to free plugins.

    If you ever choose to use WPBB and this happens again, please send me an email (me@codebycarter.com) and I will be able to fix it for you.

    I never saw it. (I'm not alone. :D) I think part of it is that users are used to having a simple install. Non standard steps should be well documented but in this case they are not.

    Good point about rating plugins, I'll keep that in mind for the future. Mingle is working perfectly so no need to rate it broken.
