  • Try deleting the plugin and reloading it. Basically, it sounds as if there’s an extra ‘}’ in the code. This could be due to a corrupt download and installation of the plugin

    Looks like I left some short open tags in the most recent release, which could be the cause of your problem. They are fixed in the development version, available now, and the fix will be included in the next release.

    Please let me know if that resolved this problem for you!

    Thanks alot, i was just going to post the same question and got your reply instead. 🙂 going to try the dev version, hope it works.

    It does not let me change the option of
    “Only the [5] [most recent] replies”
    no matter what i enter it always stays 5 in the drop down.
    and it also triggers an error on the post page

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in C:\xampp\htdocs\pf\wp-content\plugins\bbpress-post-topics\templates\comments-bbpress.php on line 30

    drsim – another short open tag, try dev version. 🙂

    Also has a fix for the reply count issue. Thanks for reporting these!

    Thanks David, will have a go in short while.
    One more thing thou. Is there any way that already existing posts or pages with comments can be transferred as topics and replies?
    I already have about 400 posts with a lot of comments. and the reason i want bbpress in my blog so that long discussions can be mvoed to forum. and right now your plugin only work if you publish a new post.
    I have tried bbsyn, it doesn’t work.
    It would be nice if you can put an option of migrate of sync in your plugin to convert existing contents to bbpress.

    Thanks in advacne

    drsim – that’s a pretty big undertaking, and it’s complicated by the fact that comments are threaded but replies aren’t. This may be coming, but is still very much in the idea stage.

    How would you want threaded comments to be represented in a flat forum topic?

    David, threaded comments can be printed as normal replies, and i think this is acceptable. but it is very important to have existing comments moved to replies, other wise we can loose a good amount of discussion data.

    here is the website which i am working on.
    it has very long comments and i want to move all the comments to the forum as topic and replies. and on the post page only 5 recent comments will show and rest will go to the topic page. like your plugin works. but currently if i make comment on the homepage, all the existing comments got away.. i hope you get what i m trying to accomplish here.
