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.

Can I Change More Strings, for Example String 'Xyz'?

No, not yet. The plugin just uses currently available filters in bbPress branches from v2.1 or higher plus the WordPress global variable for all translations for a few other strings. So I'll only add new settings for more strings if there is an original bbPress filter/ hook available and if a setting really makes sense for some use cases (to slim down global variable usage!).

The Plugin's Settings Have No Effect in My Install!?

Sadly, this could be true in some cases:

  • If your current used theme or other third-party 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.
