Support » Plugin: Post Comments as bbPress Topics » bbPress Topics for Posts created duplicate Topics in Forum

  • Resolved bamadale


    We just updated the bbPress Topics for Posts plugin to version 1.8.3 and now we are getting duplicate topics inside the Forum when we create a Blog post.

    We can uncheck the boxes (which are checked by default) and nothing gets posted in the Forum at all.

    I have de-activated the plugin and tried to create a Blog Post and then nothing got posted to the Forum as well.

    We tried just checking the first box and unchecking the bottom two in the plugin but that still generated two topics.

    Has anyone else noticed this issue?

  • Yes, this happened to me too.

    I wasn’t using Block Editor. Instead I was using Classical Editor. I disabled Classic Editor to see how the plugin would go. It didn’t immediately work, (perhaps some cache issues) but it works now. The BBPress forums still use Classic editor though which is important, and now my blog posts reluctantly use Block Editor for the sole purpose of making this plugin work.

    Would be nice if this plugin worked with Classical Editor.

    I should also mention that while it works with Block Editor for me, I also had to install Enable jQuery Migrate Helper plugin. This plugin allows the site to use the old version of jQuery 1.12.5 which I’m guessing this plugin originally used. If I disable this plugin or set the plugin to use the default version of jQuery, then the bbPress Topics for Posts stops working.

    To recap. It works for me because:
    1) I disabled Classic Editor and use the now default Block Editor.
    2) I installed a plugin called Enable jQuery Migrate Helper and had to set it to use Legacy jQuery 1.12.5.

    Here’s a post about WordPress 5.5 breaking a lot of plugins because of jQuery.

    🙂 always good to get a thanks !!

    I have only recently got access to this plugin to bring it up to date and get it working again, so there may still be glitches, so all feedback is good
