Forum setup error using BuddyPress v1.3 Bleeding

Description

I did a new install tonight using BP v1.3 Bleeding from the svn. I downloaded the "current" bbPress from the WordPress automatic download repository: bbPress 2.0-beta-3b

Everything went fine until after I completed the Forums Setup in BuddyPress. That part told me to set up a config file, which I did, and then I even did a re-install to be sure. When I went back to the actual site and clicked on the forum tab (using the default theme) I got the following messages:

Warning: require_once(R:\www\afv202/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress/bb-includes/class.bb-query.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in R:\www\afv202\wp-content\plugins\buddypress\bp-forums\bp-forums-bbpress-sa.php on line 19

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'R:\www\afv202/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress/bb-includes/class.bb-query.php' (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in R:\www\afv202\wp-content\plugins\buddypress\bp-forums\bp-forums-bbpress-sa.php on line 19

I can see the code in the BuddyPress bp-forums source code, but the error speaks for itself in terms of not finding what it wants. There are actually a series of these in the code, the one it blew up on was just the first in the series.

BP doesn't use the 2.0 (plugin version) of bbPress yet. BP 1.3 will still be using the 1.x branch (the standalone version) of bbPress.

Replying to cnorris23:

BP doesn't use the 2.0 (plugin version) of bbPress yet. BP 1.3 will still be using the 1.x branch (the standalone version) of bbPress.

Thanks. I'm new to BP, but FYI one of the things I like about WP and BP is the ease of administration. If you want to keep using bbPress V1 there should probably be better documentation that people need to go to bbPress and specifically do a download of V1. Otherwise, like me, they may go to the plugin facility and all they will find is V2, and currently that the beta I mentioned above.

When I went outside the system and went directly to bbPress I found a download of V1. That actually made my problem go away! Cool! But I had no idea I really needed to do that until I just saw your response above to my ticket.

Going over the top in customer service is a really, really good thing. But then the customers get used to it ;-) and you can't let down on that part.

Thanks for the great software!!!

Hm... You shouldn't need to download anything at all. bbPress v1 is hooked to BP via an svn external. That means that if you install via SVN, bbPress is pulled automatically; likewise, when you download the zip (from the web or through the WP plugin installer), the bbPress files are already there.

I don't want to make a big deal of all this. I'm trying to learn the system here and I could be doing stupid things. I'm running v1.3 because I reported a bunch of problems on v1.2.9 and was told they wouldn't be fixed, go to 1.3 instead. I used the zip option on the bottom of the page to create my download. I double checked the zip and the bp-forums directory did NOT include a bbPress sub-directory, so I had to download bbPress myself and put it in the right spot. Thus my scenario above. I can't remember if I did the "Install Forum" button on the install wizard before or after I did the download myself. That may have been my problem.

I liked the wizard on v1.3 by the way. The install was a lot more in line with the WP ease of admin philosophy that I'm coming to like very, very much.

Ah, that explains it. The download of trunk that you get from Trac is merely a reference version, and probably does not have bbPress with it. In the future, you might consider getting your trunk version via svn:

svn co http://svn.buddypress.org/trunk /local/path/to/buddypress/

Thanks for testing trunk!

Re: Download of bbPress v1/Customer service comment

You are using an unreleased, not-even-beta version of BP, so be careful if you're running it on a production site. Because of 1.3's unreleased, not-even-beta status, as boonebgorges said,

The download of trunk that you get from Trac is merely a reference version, and probably does not have bbPress with it.

When the final release is made, and for that matter when official beta/RC candidates are released, thee packages will have the appropriate bbPress code included.

To echo boonebgorges: Thanks for testing trunk!
