Topic content invisible on website
By , for WP 4.1.1

I was all excited, installed the plugin. I created two forums, one was restricted to Bronze level and another to silver level. Then I created a welcome topic in on of the forums. I can see it was created and I can see the content in the Topics when go to it from Topics in the dashboard. But I cannot see the topic's content on my website. Created a second topic, still can't see the contents on my website. I am logged in as admin. So not sure what the heck is going on...

The topics have no restrictions but the forums are restricted to membership levels.

I can only see the tag and the creation details of the post. Where is the body of the topic?

I'd be happy to change my rating if I am screwing things up..

I love bbPress

After I click on the name of the forum e.g. Politics it shows the topic then under that you can create a new topic. At the bottom of that it says ( Comments are disabled ). Comments are not disabled. I check by logging out and posting using a different name than my admin user name and had no problem commenting. My website is:

This is the best plug-in that I have. It's so easy to use, and does exactly what I need. Now there is no reason to use another forum like vBulletin, which doesn't integrate into my WordPress site.

Do not use it's appalling

bbPress is produced by a group of well meaning and capable volunteers with little to none financial resources.

Don't be fooled by its alleged link to WordPress it provides no protection against bbPress' dire failings.

bbPress plugins are not updated regularly and frequently fail or worse do damage to your site. They make it difficult to take your data with you if you wish to leave.

If you have serious critical issues as I have had several times don't expect a quick response form the bbPress forums, you may be waiting several days.

In brief, bbPress is a fantastic hobby for those with spare time but if you are serious about your website do yourself a favour and select serious forum software and not this rubbish.

A Classic
