This is a code snippet that will add forums, topics, and replies from bbPress to your WordPress search results. Bear in mind, some premium themes have bbPress bundled with the theme, and may have their own custom templates for displaying search results. Like I mentioned earlier, some themes — like the kind you would pick up at ThemeForest — often have bbPress included in the theme, and they may output search results according to their own internal functions. One theme I encountered recently outputs search results via a shortcode buried in their internal theme folders. The specific shortcode started like this:. Now your theme might vary, but what I did to fix the results count was override the shortcode in a child theme , like this:. After that, the search results count was accurate in this particular premium theme. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

What Are The Origins Of bbPress?
Dealing With Search in Premium Themes
Brajesh Singh in BuddyPress Comments. For BuddyPress 1. Based on the search type selected, BuddyPress redirects you to different search pages like members? So, what we do here, when ever the Search page is opened we are simply loading out advance search page template. In the content area if you are using default theme, then inside the div "padder" put the following line. We have not checked for active component as member is a core component and will always be active. As you see above, we are calling the component-loop. The blog search not the blogs search has no loop file, so we will create one for the blog search too.
What Is bbPress Good For?
Should I drop this file in my plug-ins folder? Copy the code into my functions file? Sorry for being so dense and thank you for tackling this!! If you add the following to the above code it will also search for Forum Titles.. Thanks so much for this snippet. Very helpful, although it does not appear to respect a forums' privacy. If the content cannot be viewed by the current user, it probably shouldn't appear in search results. I just started looking at this, but I imagine we could grab the parent forum and check to see if the current user has permission to view it. EDIT: Sorry, just realized that all this is doing is making the post types available to search and has nothing to do with the results.
While there are plenty of open-source forum software, integrating a third-party forum with WordPress can be a mess. It runs on top of WordPress, which is the best website builder in the world. Just like WordPress, bbPress is extensible, and you can install add-on plugins to add more functionality to your forums. It is also very light-weight and faster than other popular open-source forum software.
