Works as Billed but Slows Site Significantly
By ,

This string swap plugin works as intended but it was adding almost 2 seconds of load time to my bbPress installation per the P3 Plugin Performance Profiler. I had to disable it as a result.

For those trying to achieve this without the slowdown, I was able to successfully change the names on my Forum software using the following code, added to the end of my Functions.php page in my theme:

add_filter( 'bbp_get_dynamic_roles', 'my_bbp_custom_role_names');

function my_bbp_custom_role_names(){
 return array(

        // Keymaster
        bbp_get_keymaster_role() => array(
            'name'         => __( 'CHANGE THIS TO YOUR NAME', 'bbpress' ),
            'capabilities' => bbp_get_caps_for_role( bbp_get_keymaster_role() )

        // Moderator
        bbp_get_moderator_role() => array(
            'name'         => __( 'Moderator', 'bbpress' ),
            'capabilities' => bbp_get_caps_for_role( bbp_get_moderator_role() )

        // Participant
        bbp_get_participant_role() => array(
            'name'         => __( 'Participant', 'bbpress' ),
            'capabilities' => bbp_get_caps_for_role( bbp_get_participant_role() )

        // Spectator
        bbp_get_spectator_role() => array(
            'name'         => __( 'Spectator', 'bbpress' ),
            'capabilities' => bbp_get_caps_for_role( bbp_get_spectator_role() )

        // Blocked
        bbp_get_blocked_role() => array(
            'name'         => __( 'Blocked', 'bbpress' ),
            'capabilities' => bbp_get_caps_for_role( bbp_get_blocked_role() )
