#2037 new defect (bug)

Help on Forum Settings missing items

Reported by: jaredatch's profile jaredatch Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: low
Severity: minor Version: 2.2
Component: General - Administration Keywords: has-patch 2nd-opinion
Cc: stephen@…, georgemamadashvili@…


On the help screen on the main forum settings page, it seems that a few of the newly added settings didn't make it.

Revisions, Default user role, and auto role are missing from the main settings help. Revisions might of been intentional since that is self explanatory, but I think default user role and auto role should have some good description for users looking to understand what exactly they do.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 2.3

I'll likely be rejigging some of these for 2.3, and hiding the non-essential settings and aiming for smarter defaults where it's possible.

Patches welcome to fix up the obvious bits. (Don't forget to column align everything. :))

  • Milestone changed from 2.3 to 2.4

Needs a patch, so punting to 2.4.

#5 @jaredatch

I'd be more than happy to make a patch, but it probably be best if you provided me some copy. I honestly have no idea how to explain the role related options.

#6 @johnjamesjacoby

  • Milestone changed from 2.4 to 2.5

Dream up some copy, and I'll edit it. Moving to 2.5 pending a quick patch.

#7 @johnjamesjacoby

  • Milestone changed from 2.5 to 2.6

2.5 is going to focus on performance improvements. Moving to 2.6.

#8 @netweb

'Bulk Edit' sections for forums, topics & replies admin panels also need updated copy.

Forum User Slugs -> "Topic Subscriptions" should be "Subscriptions" now that we have forum and topic subscriptions.

@pareshradadiya, awesome, thanks for the patch.

Disallow editing after:

  • <strong>Disallow editing after</strong> set to the time (in number of minutes) to limit post editing. Once the time limit has been reached the forum post no longer be available for editing to forum participants
  • <strong>Disallow editing after</strong> the set time (in number of minutes) to limit topic and reply editing, once the time limit has been reached these can no longer be edited without moderation privileges.


  • <strong>Revisions</strong> enable wordpress revision for bbPress topics and replies. WordPress stores a new version of posts each time a draft is saved or a post is edited and republished.
  • <strong>Revisions</strong> enables WordPress to store versions of bbPress topics and replies each time a topic or reply is edited and updated.


  • Subscriptions also includes forums now, so that should be included... ... forums and topics... I think would suffice

Fancy Editor

  • This is no longer included in bbPress 2.x and should be removed from the help

@johnjamesjacoby, could you please edit/review these proposed string changes and any notes so that pareshradadiya can update the patch before we run it in.
