Hi,

A bug when displaying only a subforum on a different page than the “official” one, with forumid=x shortcode and threaded layout.

If the “Add new topic” button is enabled on the main page, then when adding the topic you will have TinyMce javascript errors and the editing form won’t work. This works if you’re on the “official” forum page.

 

A second bug is the uselessness of the shortcode forumid=x that is only listing content but doesn’t allow the users to really use such a separate forum.

 

In an ideal world the shortcode would be directly on the main forum page instead of needing some other page and it would separate things accordingly.

There is a plugin conflict. Please try to deactivate the plugins one by one to find a problem maker.

This is not a bug. All shortcodes are only designed to show to the first list, but paginations and links go to the main forum page with main forum slug. So the pages with custom shortcodes are not separate forums, they are just a list of current view but all content is linked to the main forum page and being opened under Base Forum URL/Slug.

It was indeed a plugin conflict. Thank you !

Also I understand better, now, how the shortcodes are functionning.
