FAQ

I cant see new posts/threads or modifications I made to the forum

If you are using some third-party plugin for caching (WP Super Cache for example) and disable caching for the forum-page, everything should work fine again.

I cant upload my files

By default only files of the following filetype can be uploaded: jpg, jpeg, gif, png, bmp, pdf. You can modify the allowed filetypes inside the forum administration.

Where can I add moderators?

Moderators can be added via the user edit screen in the WordPress administration interface.

How can I show a specific post/topic/forum/category on a page?

You can extend the shortcodes with different parameters to show specific content only. For example: [forum post="POSTID"], [forum topic="TOPICID"], [forum forum="FORUMID"], [forum category="CATEGORYID"] or [forum category="CATEGORYID1,CATEGORYID2"].

Where can I ban users?

Users can be banned via the user edit screen in the WordPress administration interface.

How can I add a captcha to the editor for guests?

To extend your forum with a captcha you have to use one of the available third-party captcha-plugins for WordPress and extend your themes functions.php file with the checking-logic via the available hooks and filters by your own. For example you can use the plugin Really Simple CAPTCHA and extend your themes functions.php file with this code:
https://gist.github.com/Asgaros/6d4b88b1f5013efb910d9fcd01284698.

I want help to translate Asgaros Forum

You can help to translate Asgaros Forum on this site:
https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/asgaros-forum.
Please only use this site and dont send me your own .po/.mo files because it is hard to maintain if I get multiple translation-files for a language.

Please approve my translations

You can approve translations by yourself if you are a Project Translation Editor (PTE). Please contact me in the forums if you are a native speaker and want to become a PTE.

How can I add my own theme?

You can add own themes for your forum in the /wp-content/themes-asgarosforum directory (for example: /wp-content/themes-asgarosforum/my-theme). All themes in the /wp-content/themes-asgarosforum can be activated in the forum options. Each theme must have the following files: style.css, widgets.css and editor.css.

Which hooks and filters are available?

You can find a list of available hooks and filters on this site:

Reviews

Really great plugin

Asgaros forum is simply great: well documented, outstanding support, easy to customize, excellent user rights system. This is exactly what I needed to create small discussion groups inside my Buddypress e-learning group.
Thank you so much!

Awesome Plugin

After doing a lot of research and looking for the perfect solution for our site, I found Asgaros to be the best forum solution. I was not just looking at free solutions either. The fact that this has been provided totally free of cost is amazing, given all it does. I am definitely donating as soon as my site goes live.

The forum is clean and very well organized. It does integrate perfectly with WordPress. You can easily set up many different forums and place them in different spots on your site, or you can have just one big forum area. Groups make it easy to restrict content, and permissions, like Forum Administrator can be set up within the forum itself without having to set a site administrator and give them a role that allows forum administration.

I can see a few things that could be added, but this has been the easiest to understand how it works, easiest to implement, and still retains a wide range of features that make it a little more than just a basic forum.

Thank you Thomas for your hard work.

Supports multiple languages out of the box.

A very nice looking, simple to install and operate forum, that works out of the box on a multilingual site. Bogo multilingual plugin has been used and it just works perfectly with Asgaros Forum. Great work!
Thank you very much for providing this plugin!
