Support » Plugin: bbp style pack » Doesnt work properly with bbPress 2.6.0 Release Candidate 5

  • Hi, just a heads up about this, after installing and testing with the newest release candidate alot of things no longer work, I understand the release candidate isnt the official release, but I assume that you may need to start work on compatability before its pushed out. if you havent tested it for yourself please do so, you may want to look into this before the official update is pushed out, you can download it from here https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-2-6-0-release-candidate-5/

    Many thanks for sending me this – I really appreciate it.

    rc5 includes a feature where bbpress css only loads on bbpress pages to try and speed initial site loading. However this has the issue that my plugin css expects bbpress to load at start, and there is no easy way to make mine work as a dependency to bbpress when it occasionally loads.

    Thus bbpress overwrites my settings by loading later.

    The issue also arises for any bbpress css changes made by theme authors and any changes made to child themes.

    I have been in conversation with the bbpress authors about this for a while, and they have decided to withdraw that feature from 2.6 final version.

    But please keep on raising any issues you find, I try and keep on top of upcoming stuff, but I’ll not always spot combinations that others like yourself will, so am really grateful for any additional help !

    No probs @robin-w, heres what my testing has found, you can try to replicate these things, activating your alternate Forum template 1 (which is how bbpress should look by default really, as the way bbpress looks as standard is terrible, your template makes it look like a proper forum should) results in it no longer working in 2.6 too, However placing your loop-forums.php file inside a bbpress folder inside a child theme works fine.

    Now another big problem is the ‘Unread posts’ and the ‘Add Thumbnails to forum lists’ they work as expected on the main forum page but when you click a forum category the forums inside do not use either the Thumbnail or the Unread posts bubble (which worked flawlessly on bbpress Version 2.5.14)

    If I find more things as I check it out I will let you know just incase you are not aware, these 3 issues above are quite biggies really as users willl lose alot of functionality that your plugin offers (which is a great plugin btw)
