Widget Visibility: improve compatibility with bbPress' Forums root

Reported by: jeherve Owned by: tmoorewp
Priority: normal Severity: normal
Plugin: jetpack Keywords: widget-visibility bbpress
Cc: jeherve, richardmtl, csonnek, ryancowles, netweb


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Activate Jetpack and the Widget Visibility module
  2. Install and activate bbPress
  3. Create a new static page named "forumpage"
  4. Set that page as Forums root under Settings > Forums
  5. Go to Appearance > Widgets, and open the visibility options for one of your widgets:
    • Option 1: display widget when page = "Forums" post type => doesn't work.


  • Option 2: display widget when page = forumpage => doesn't work


It's currently not possible to apply any Widget conditions to that particular page.

We should see about adding extra rules using bbPress' conditional tags when bbPress is active.

As Jetpack is now using GitHub rather than Trac for development I have copied this ticket to a new issue on GitHub https://github.com/Automattic/jetpack/issues/315
