FV bbPress Tweaks



  • Guest posting – any forum posts posted with a known email address get associated to the WP user, any posts with a new email address get a new user account. Enable in Tools -> FV BBPress Tweaks.
  • Forum moderation – any new forum posts or topics get into moderation. Only admins and the original posters can see the pending posts. Enable in Settings -> FV bbPress Tweaks.
  • Nicer permalinks – get rid of /support/topic/{topic-slug} /support/forum/{forum-name} and start using hierarchical /support/{forum-name}/{sub-forum-name}/{topic-slug} structure!

Known bugs:

  • You can open the topic editing from front-end for pending topics
  • When you delete a reply, the pending replies no longer appear, just open the topic again with its original URL


The plugin installs just like any other WordPress plugin. Check Tools -> FV BBPress Tweaks and Settings -> FV bbPress Tweaks.

Unfortunaly it breaks the URL structure and leads from the "newest topics" links in the sidebar to a 404 page... it seems to change the topic URL. Deactivating the plugin makes the links work again.

I've set in bbpress forum setting to not include forum in URL, and my site works great. Install this plugin to take advantage of moderation functionality but it breaks my site by adding the forum again in URL. Without plugin: After installing the plugin: lead to 404 Not found. It could be great to add option regarding pretty URL structure. Best, Frid
