[Resolved] Can't create a topic in bbPress forum on your site

  • Hi,
    I’m trying to create a topic on your bbpress.org site/forum, and I keep getting an error that my topic can’t be created. Doesn’t really give me a lot of confidence before installing this on a website. 🙁

    Can I ask my question here – and can I somehow post questions on your forum instead of here?

    I’m working on a site that currently has 120 WordPress users. We’re looking at installing a bbPress for the forum. I need to be able to mass subscribe all 120 users to a new forum that will be created once it’s installed. I’ve searched but haven’t seen a solution to this. Is this possible with bbPress?

    Thanks!

    That’s weird, I just tried myself and it worked, checked the spam queue and your topic or topics are not there either 🙁

    Yes, this is entirely possible, a quick custom plugin would do the trick or add them directly into the database if your fluent and confident with MySQL 🙂

    Hmmm, I wouldn’t say I’m fluent with MySQL, but I can get around. Is there a certain table I’d need to add them to?

    Does that mean there isn’t a way for me to post questions in the forum on your site?

    Thanks!

    In wp_usermeta each user ID that you want subscribed to the the forum needs a meta key wp__bbp_forum_subscriptions (Note the double underscore between wp and bbp) and a meta value of the forum ID.

    In the pic below there are 3 users, user ID’s, 1, 278 & 760 with a comma separated list of subscribed forum ID’s.

    Here you go, a custom plugin to make it easier 🙂

    Just change the forum ID, as soon as you you activate the plugin it will update every user to subscribe to that forum ID.

    Once you have activated it and no error message appears (ensures a correct forum ID) then deactivate it and delete the plugin.

    Thank you, the “create new topic” button was hidden under “bbpres.org” 🙂

    Thanks
