WP Symposium

Social Networking for WordPress: profile page, forum, activity, friends, member directory, mail, chat, groups, events, gallery, mobile and more!

Q. What is WP Symposium Pro? A. After 4 years, a lot has been learned, and "WPS Pro" is WP Symposium re-written from the ground-up, as compatible as we can make it, no custom tables and as much as possible use your existing theme styles. The core plugin is still free and available on the WordPress repository at https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-symposium-pro.

Q. How to I get an activate code for the extra features? A. Sorry, but with WP Symposium Pro providing the same features, we are no longer accepting paid-for features for this version of the plugin, and instead asking people to consider getting all these features with https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-symposium-pro.

Q. Is WP Symposium covered by the GPL license? A. Yes, for sure. Everything listed on the WordPress directory is covered by the GPL v3 licence. There may be other plugins that are compatible with WP Symposium that are sold commercially, but what is provided via the download at http://www.wordpress.org will always be covered by the GPL licence.

Q. What's the one thing I probably haven't done? A. Visited the Installation page to update WP Symposium's internal paths?

Q. The admin side works, but the forum (or another plugin) doesn't appear? A. Check you have [symposium-forum] on your page, with a hyphen, not an underscore. Replace [symposium-forum] with the shortcode of the plugin.

Q. I've done that, but the forum (or another plugin) still doesn't appear? A. Have you put [symposium-forum] on a WordPress page, not an HTML file?

Q. It all looks okay, but I just get a spinning "please wait" symbol? A. Sounds like you almost certainly have a Javascript problem. Use Firefox+Firebug or Chrome Developer Console to see what's going on.

Q. Can I use other languages? A. There are a growing number of translations available to use at http://www.crowdin.net (see http://www.wpsymposium.com for further instructions). From v0.58 support for non-Western character sets was introduced (needs a fresh v0.58+ installation).

Q. Are there images other than the usual smilies? A. Yes, if you look in the smilies folder you can use any of the images there by putting {{xxx}} around the first part of the filename, eg: {{rofl}} would show rofl.png - to see the full list, go to the Smilies page at http://www.wpsymposium.com.

Q. Will WP Symposium work on WPMU/WPMS? A. Yes, WordPress Multi-site is supported, although it is not as widely used as the single site installation.

Q. I don't see friends when they're online, can't edit forum posts or read all mail in my inbox. I see stuff, but not much works... A. Sounds like AJAX isn't working, probably due to a Javascript error. Use Firefox+Firebug or Chrome Developer Console to see what's going on.

Q. There used to be a login and registration plugin, where did they go? A. After consultation with users, the majority voted to leave authentication to WordPress or other plugins such as Theme-My-Login, however in hindsight it can be introduced in a more strategic manner. There is now a sidebar widget that allows members to login, or show links to the register/forgotten password WordPress pages. Once logged in, the user can see how any messages (including those unread) and friends (including new friend requests), etc with the same widget.

Q. How can I get rid of the Powered By message? A. Use the Templates via WP Admin -> WP Symposium -> Templates.
