Thanks for the report.
It looks like the same issue as this one:
Hopefully, we can put together a fix for the next maintenance release.

We have two CBOX instances; one, our sandbox/staging site is at sandbox.site.edu/; the other, our production site, is at production.site.edu/cbox/.
The menu icons work fine in the sandbox, but in production, they show up as unstyled characters (0, L, etc.). Those characters are supposed to have the iconSweets font applied, but it isn’t loaded i…[Read more]

A resolution, of sorts: after talking with the CBOX development team, it sounds like a misunderstanding on our part. CBOX really does take over a multisite install, so running multiple CBOX instances in a single WordPress instance is not viable. We have talked with our stakeholders and found that they can coexist in the same commons, so we’re OK f…[Read more]
I can confirm this is a bug when the “Group Forum Default Tab” option is not selected under the CBOX admin dashboard’s “Settings” page.
We should make it so forum posting works regardless if that option is checked or not.

We’re running CBox 220.127.116.11 with all plugins fully up to date.
A user reported that in a hidden group, users were unable to post new topics or reply to topics. I found that the issue only exists with the Commons-in-a-Box plugin active – with all the CBox-managed plugins active, I am able to post successfully.
From there traced it to the…[Read more]
Did you make any template overrides to the CBOX Theme in a child theme?
If not, try removing /wp-content/themes/cbox-theme/ and reinstalling from the CBOX dashboard.
You can also try switching your theme to one of the WordPress “Twenty” yearly themes to see if you can view the submit button.
Sometime in the past year or so, the “What’s New, YON” form on user’s Activity page lost its [Post/Submit] button. If anyone has any tips, I’d appreciate it. I’ve attached the code for the form.
Thanks for finding this bug. We’re in the process of addressing this.
In the meantime, you can download the CBOX Theme from our Github repo:
Unzip the folder and rename to
cbox-themeand then upload this folder to

…and, the problem is that the new theme file isn’t where it’s expected. There’s no zip file for the theme in wp-content/plugins/commons-in-a-box/includes/zip. Actually, the zip files from previous theme updates aren’t there, either – though they were there before I updated.
I’ve been managing plugins independently of cbox in order to apply…[Read more]
Just updated the CBOX plugin. CBOX dashboard is telling me to upgrade the default theme, but when I try, I get the attached error message. When I return to the dashboard, I’m still being prompted to upgrade the theme.

Unfortunately, wp-multi-network isn’t tested with recent versions of WordPress, and seems not to behave appropriately, even without installing CBOX. It looks like they’re working on it, but I may need to spin up multiple instances in the meanwhile.
Let’s Encrypt currently doesn’t support wildcard subdomains. They plan on adding this feature in January 2018:
So, at the moment, you would probably have to register each subdomain individually with LE and then you should be able to use SSL on those subdomains when…[Read more]
One way to strengthen your WordPress install is to disable PHP execution from the /wp-content/uploads/ folder.
You can view this article to find out how to do so:

I’ve been the victim of multiple attacks recently, and while I don’t know that CBOX plugins are the point of entry, I can’t find any other vulnerability, and WordFence keeps shouting at me to update some of these plugins. I’m toying with updating manually by editing
