our provider made a php update from v7.4 to v8.1 (because EOL for php v7.4) the days and after this our homepage wasn't reachable with the error message in the topic.
Via FTP i deactivated all installed plugins until the error came back and i found out, that this error comes from bbPress.
We have installed:
bbp style pack v5.3.5
bbPress Toolkit v1.0.12
theme Origamiez v1.3.5
If you need further information please let me know.
I really wanted to like this plugin, I really did. I mean, it's by the guys that made WordPress. So, what could possibly go wrong? Well, let's start with the layout. While I do appreciate simple and clean designs, it can get TOO simple. The forum page looks like a Typo3 layout from the nineties. Now to the more annoying part: There is no registration or lost password form on the login page. Seriously? So, I added both pages and activated the sidebar just for the bbpress widget! This gives me an acceptable registration page. But wait! If I fill in the wrong credentials (or simply nothing), I'll get redirected to the WordPress login page. WHAT? I know that I can install a plugin for this feature. But I simple don't want an additional plugin for such a basic thing.
Very primitive. No documentation. For example, there is a search box but no way to put a label on it. I tried to add a topic to a forum but there was no submit button. Basically, it has not been updated in a year and it shows.
I'm shocked how unusable this is. Configuration is not simple and not documented. Appearance is primitive at best, not even basic. But in the end it's totally worthless as all the basic access functionality is missing or does not work. No registration page/ link on login page. No documentation on setting this up. blogs all point to manually making a registration page using shortcodes?? But the codes don't work, so the plugin is just useless. From here I tried Asgaros and while simple, it actually works in full out of the box with easy configuration all in one place (not 3 like bbpress). Sure if you want a nice registration form you need another plugin, but that was already the case for Wordpress anyway.
