bbPress Trac

Trac is the place to follow along with the development of bbPress. You can track changes in the Timeline section of this site. There is also an RSS feed and a mailing list for those interested.

Bugs reports are also kept on Trac. If you are looking to submit a bug report, please head on over.

You may login to this site using your username and password. If you don't already have one, sign up at the forums.

You can browse the source here, but you probably want to check out bbPress using Subversion.

Security Issues

If you have encountered a security issue that isn't addressed in a released version of bbPress, please contact security (at) with detailed information.


There are many ways to contribute to bbPress. If you want to get started quickly, test a patch, or grab a bug and see if you can reproduce the problem it describes. Don't miss the test automation tools.

If you have an idea for a feature, but not the ability to code it yourself, share your idea in the bbPress Forums.

The Life of a Ticket

Reporting Bugs in the WordPress Codex tells how to report a bug, what all the keywords we use in Trac mean, and more.


If you would like to receive notification when a ticket you have submitted or are interested in changes, please configure your email address in trac after you have logged in by going to the Preferences page.

Then when you add your user name to the (cc) on a ticket, you will be notified of any comments or changes to that ticket going forward.
