    I’m using the Going Green child theme, bbPress forums and the bbPress Genesis Extend plugin, along with the Sharing module in Jetpack. Jetpack’s share buttons work great on regular posts/pages, but they aren’t appearing on forums or topic pages, even though I’ve checked the options for Forums, Topics and even Replies under Settings > Sharing.

    Here’s a link where you can see the issue: http://socalhiker.net/community/forum/campfire/

    Anyone been able to get this working? Any suggestions?

    Under Settings > Sharing is bbPress listed under “Show buttons on” – if it is, make sure there is a check mark in there.

    No, under Settings > Sharing they don’t list bbPress, per se. Here’s what it shows:

    The last three options only show up after installing bbPress. I’ve checked all of them and I’ve checked some of them. I’ve also tried on a fresh WP install using the Twenty Twelve theme and no other plugins other than bbPress and Jetpack (so it’s not a Genesis thing). They simply don’t show up.

    I’ve think I have a solution. I’ve never installed bbPress. Do you use it by adding a shortcode to a Page?

    No, it creates a new kind of post for forums and topics. These forums we are using here are powered by bbPress (as an example).

    Jeff, while searching around I see you posted this on several other forums. I just installed bbPress on my WPTraining (Test) site and got this to work – http://mediacreationsgroup.com/wptraining/forums/topic/test-topic-1/.

    Install Genesis Simple Hooks. Then locate the area that says “before_post_content”. In that box, place this:

    [php]<?php echo sharing_display(); ?>[/php]

    Check the box that says Execute PHP on this Hook – then Save it.

    If it’s not in the area you’d like, just move that code to the area you’d like to see it.

    Thanks anitac. While that inserts the buttons, that’s not where I want them, and it duplicates the buttons on posts and pages. I think what I need to do is write a function that uses a bbPress hook. Unfortunately, the bbPress hooks are not well documented in the codex.

    You can use the hooks to reposition them where you want them. I think with some SP help, we can get it to work only on the Forum. Let me put out an SOS to see if we can get some help.
