    Hi Brajesh,

    Was just checking in on this one. If you need me to do some testing for you I’d be happy to do so on my test board.

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thanks for getting back with me.

    I think what I’m looking for is:

    1.) Ability to make my own thread prefixes in the admin area. A simple text field to input the name of the prefix will do perfectly.
    2.) Tell BBpress that I want “Forum X” to use those prefixes.
    3.) When a user clicks on the thread prefix, it will show all threads with the attached prefix.

    I’m in no big hurry for it. Hopefully other users will find it useful and it can be used as a premium plugin.

    Thanks for your help as always.

    So in the admin of the site, I could tell the software what forum I wanted to have the prefix. Then I could make my individual prefixes and tell the software which forms to use those prefixes in.

    So example:

    Introductions, Feedback, General Chat – prefixes would be [Intro] [Feedback] [General]

    Site Info, Suggestions, Feedback – prefixes would be [Site Info] [Suggestions] [Feedback]

    Games We Play – prefixes would be [Battlefield] [Archeage] [Other]

    I could make my prefixes and then say “I want to use these in this forum”

    Some of my other forums didn’t have any thread prefixes at all, but I could tell the software which forum I wanted to make the user use a thread prefix. In the forums I had thread prefixes, I made the user use a prefix. They weren’t allowed to post unless a prefix was attached.

    Hi Brajesh,

    That would be exactly what I am looking for.

    Here is an image of a buy/trade system I set up in Mybb. The prefixes are colored differently (I did that via css). I made it so that when a user posted a “Sell” offer, that the prefix would show up and if you clicked on that prefix, it would pull up all “Sell” offers. I also made some buttons at the top so that if a user visited the forum, the could click on the prefix they wanted to sort by and it would only show them those threads with that prefix attached. It allowed me to rely less on subforums that would clutter up my website.

    I did the same thing for my other forms. I had one form titled “The Games We Play” and inside of it, I made prefixes for each game that my community was playing at that time. If a user visited the forums and saw that we played “Battlefield”, they could click on that prefix and only show topics that had the thread prefix “Battlefield”.

    I’m actually shocked at some of the basic forum features that are missing in bbpress. While it is very lightweight, it lacks some pretty basic features. I mean, they didn’t even have a “make new topic” button. I did share the method to do that with the community and they were a little shocked at the simplicity of it. Why this isn’t included in the core…I will not understand.

    Thanks again, I hope that you can make this a premium plugin for the community. I think it will be very valuable for forum users who want to organize their forms a little better.

    I see it was sort of done here:

    http://www.hudsonatwell.co/tutorials/bbpress-add-forum-name-prefix-topic-titles/
    http://support.inboundnow.com/

    This guy has the prefix as the forum title. When you click on the prefix, it takes you to that forum. It would be very similar to this, but with the admin making their own custom prefixs.

    Oh,

    I had to add this to my CSS because for some odd reason, some of the activity post were being pushed far to the right.

    
    #buddypress .activity ul.item-list li {
    clear: left;
    }

    Hi Brajesh,

    WOW! This is exactly what I was looking for! I’m sorry I didn’t find this on your site earlier. I try to do a search through your blog/code snippets but maybe I missed this one.

    Thank you very much!

    Hi @sbrajesh,

    That sounds great! I’m looking forward to the updated plugin.

    Buddypress is a great addon for wordpress, but it seems like it’s lacking some features that just make sense to add. I think that’s the beauty of the plugin system.

    Sorry for my poor explination.

    So I build a group page, the plugin makes a new tab for only admin/mods to see.

    Could I copy the plugin, make a second tab, but only make that tab available to specific groups vs all groups?
