Search Widget no longer finds bbPress text

Post by Type Historian » 11 Jun 2014, 03:01

Hello,

WP 3.9.1
Suffusion 4.4.7
bbPress 2.5.4-5380
Suffu-scion child theme
Suffusion bbPress pack

I'm code-clueless but bravely follow directions.
____

The Suffusion Search Widget originally returned results including topic threads. I recently discovered that now it searches only "pages" [there are no "posts" at this site]. I figure that somewhere along the way, one of the WP or bbPress updates killed this functionality.

I've tried other search widgets; none of them can handle forum content, so I deactivated or deleted them. I'm sure the one in place now is the Suffusion Search Widget because I replaced the default magnifying glass with one of a custom color.

Pressing the "Rebuild bbPress Files" button didn't fix the problem. Any ideas? A thousand thanks for your advice,

Anna

Suffusion make use of the default WordPress search feature, no more, no less. I don't know if WordPress could search in bbPress forums in the past, but I know that if you use bbPress 2+ you don't need Suffusion bbPress Pack and you need to remove the plugin and the folders created on your server for restoring the entire functionality of bbPress: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=30240&p=75584&hilit=bbpress#p75562

Thanks for your help, Drake.

Now the problem is that when I deactivated the bbPress pack, the sidebars disappeared. So I was afraid to delete the server folders. Do you think it would it help if I did this?

Thanks again, Anna

If you just deactivate bbPress Pack without removing those folder you've only mess up everything. bbPress still not have it's functionality restored because the templates from those directories take precedence, but the templates cannot work without Suffusion bbPress Pack enabled. You can't do things in this way, either you disable bbPress Pack and remove those files as we presented in that topic linked in my first answer, or let bbPress Pack enabled and don''t remove anything - with the risk to loose some of the new bbPress functionalities.

Thanks again for your kind attention. I'm truly grateful.

I renamed the server folder labeled "suffusion-bbpress-pack." It made no difference—all bbPress pages worked as they should.

Next I de-activated the bbPress pack plug-in. As before, the sidebar disappeared. Of course, I immediately re-activated it. The first and several other elements of the sidebar use a wonder-widget that supports highly formatted text:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-widget/

Perhaps this explains the sidebar issue? My sites are about typography, so naturally I'm extra-picky about how the text LOOKS and how it's positioned.

For example, the default WP menu sidebar would require 26 lines to list every letter of the English alphabet—not an acceptable "visitor experience"!

Whatever... I can live with the status quo. The search widget still doesn't find forum posts as it once did, so I'm hunting for a better one. At least everything else works again!

Unless you are intent on solving this mystery, please don't spend more of your valuable time on my super-specific case.

I thank you once more for trying to help me,

Anna

The instructions from linked topic don't refer to "suffusion-bbpress-pack" folder which can be removed or not... is enough to deactivate Suffusion bbPress Pack plugin and the files from that folder aren't used anymore.

We talk there about folders and files related to bbpress created by the plugin in your child theme or in /suffusion folder if you don't use a child theme (better is to check in both places). I don't know which are these files/folders as I don't use bbpress anywhere.
