Announcement for IP.Board Comments for WordPress
Please leave feedback after testing the plugin. Be sure you are using 1.1.4 or later first.
Follow the Discussion in Progress link on WordPress post produces wrong link structure for forum post.
It shoudl be:
The installation mentions that you need to be using friendly urls with the .htaccess mod_rewrite code. I may not have released the update yet. I’ll go ahead and do that. Please pay specific attention to the Install tab.
Please provide specific settings on IPB.
I would like to test the cross-posting from version 1.2, when will that code be completed? Need help? I created a Invision-Wordpress bridge 2 years ago and could provide code samples to make this a complete bridge.
It’s available for testing now.
I’m still trying to get the hang of the readme.txt file and SVN.
Btw, this is just for cross-posting. I won’t be adding Single Sign On (SSO) to this anywhere.
At the end of the Installation tab, please note:
Important: IPB must be setup to use Friendly URLs, with mod_rewrite .htaccess enabled and being used. Please research that before you begin testing.
One tester had the IPB settings correct for friendly URLs and .htaccess on, but forgot to follow the instructions to paste the contents of the .htaccess into an actual .htaccess file in his folder. IPB did not automatically write to the .htaccess file for him.
I fix the .htaccess issue but the URL is still wrong. You are adding post.php? when friendly URLs and MOD_REWRITE do not add this string to the URL.
ipb-comments-for-wordpress is missing the contents from your previous version. It only calls up class.ipbcomments and the plugin is currently broken.
Single sign on is easy with the new IPB auth method. Mind if I add it to your plugin?
No, I’m not adding ‘post.php?’ myself anyway. It’s using the IP.Board classes to format the URL with BuildSEOUrl, you can see this in the source.
I’ve moved the procedural functions into the oop Class in class.ipbcomments, that’s where the code is now.
I don’t want to add SSO or support it myself, but you are welcome to use any of my code in your own SSO plugin if you’d like.
I have been lazy to update my plugin, but I have been getting a ton of emails from people who want it updated, since you are working on it, I thought we could work together. My time is very limited these days. I could add the single sign on and send it to yo so that you can add it to your code.
I even had a template and user group integration which is what most people ask me for these days. I will see.
Why is my board iframed into my wordpress comments box? I’m running 1.2.2?
I had a specific need for this plugin. What I wanted to do was turn off my WordPress comments, and use my forum to manage users and comments/replies. I was not interested in a bridge to duplicate user accounts with WordPress. In my opinion, IP.Board or most forums manage users, groups, replies, and spam much better.
The 1.2+ version of the plugin will fetch the last 5 comments from your forum topic and display it in the comment area of your WordPress post. There is no frame or iframe.
Ok, sounds like a plan. I will work on the single sign on. Seems like you will do the user mapping.
Also, what am I suppose to do with ipb-comments-for-wordpress.css?
You can edit the .css file to change the way those comments look on your page, and the follow the discussion link, etc.. if you’d like.
I solved my problem by completely uninstalling the plugin via phpMyAdmin and reinstalling it again.
Ohh, that must be something with the IP.Board classes. Maybe the path is wrong? Does the user have access to post? Is the forum for the new topic visible and exists?
