Brand new major revision of GD bbPress Toolbox Pro, brings several new features, many updates (including libraries) and several bugs fixed. Plugin is now also compatible with BuddyPress 1.6 using bbPress 2.1 for site wide forums including signature editor on user profile.

Since there were some issues with BuddyPress, there are some updates in this version to address that. Signature for the forums is also editable through the BuddyPress user profile page. Plugin is tested with BuddyPress 1.6.1 with bbPress 2.1.2 set for site wide forums. Plugin will not work with group forums powered by BuddyPress built in forums! Quotes, signatures, attachments work with BuddyPress/bbPress combination. Some of the features depend on the theme used, so if you use custom BuddyPress themes, all filters and actions present in original theme, must be present is in your theme also.

Other new features include option to track when the last user visit to any forum, topic or reply was. Based on this data, new View can be used to display only topics that are new or have new replies posted after the last user visit.  This feature works only for logged in users. Another view can be used to display new posts in the last 24 hours.  Widget with similar features is also added, allowing you to set the timeframe for the new posts topics.

Main gdr2 library is updated along side with jQueryUI and jQuery Multiselect libraries to solve issues with WordPress 3.5 and jQuery 1.8. Bug fixes include problems with toolbar menu, quote was including attachments and one of the embed filters was included twice.

BuddyPress: As for the testing with BuddyPress, only 1.6.1 and newer are supported, theme that is compatible with default one and uses all the proper filters and actions (relevant to this plugin) and uses bbPress 2.1.2 or newer as site wide forums. If you are not using such combination, there is no support from my side for GD bbPress Toolbox.

If you find any more new problems or bugs, please leave the comment in the forums.

      You need to make sure you have bbPress 2.1 plugin installed as site wide forums in BuddyPress, and that you have enabled signatures and selected which user roles can use it (best to select all) from plugins Settings panel, Features tab, Signatures group. If you have any problems with this, please open new thread in the forums and explain what the problem is: http://www.dev4press.com/forums/forum/plugins/gd-bbpress-toolbox/

    Hello, so it is NOT possible to use it for Users Groups? Only Sitewide?
    Thanks,

      When user groups start using bbPress 2.x plugins, it will be possible, right now user groups use own forums software that has nothing in common with bbPress plugin (except for name).
