@anointed This uses the same functions that teamoverpowered.com uses, plus it only creates a couple of custom functions, these custom functions all use built in bbPress functions to retrieve any data, no custom queries.
@dramaticbaby This is something I am currently looking into, unfortunately it is not as easy as it sounds, i’ll keep you informed if I get round to updating the theme with this.
I will probably look at re doing the whole theme for the main forum view, sub forum view and topic view, make that nice and slick and fluid then move onto some profile pages and stuff.
You might be better off asking on the wordpress forums: http://wordpress.org/support/

You need to copy it to the root theme folder and not inside a bbpress folder.
If you go into pages and add a new page called, forum-registration or whatever. Then add the shortcode – [bbp-register] – this will create a page for you containing the forum registration. Then you can link to that page anywhere in your bbPress or WordPress theme.
Do you have a seperate loop for replies? I have a loop-replies and a loop-topics.
So inside loop-replies you could set the header as answers and then inside loop-topics you can set the header as Answer. It all depends on how your template is setup.
Can you FTP into your wordpress site?
Inside your theme folder do you see an extras folder? This contains my page-front-forums.php
Create a page and call it whatever you want.
Put the shortcode inside the page and you got an editable page.
All shortcodes are here: http://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/
Do you not want to use your default template for bbPress then? You would like to use a different template?
If you go to the github page, then click zip, that’s the download link
From what I can see you will probably need to create your own widget, I could be wrong though.
Have you copied the bbPress compat theme files out of the plugin and into your WordPress theme?
The settings can be changed inside the settings > forums area. Have a look and see if they help.
You will have to recreate the theme for bbPress.

Do you have a page we can look at?
You might get some benefit from trying this theme out I created…
It kind of changes the default bbPress theme and seperates out the forums, see what you think, let me know if anything isn’t clear on it.
Sure, it would be great to be able to retrieve whatever data you wanted and then wrap it whatever tags you want using arguments
Just let me know what I can help with and i’ll try my best
If you want to do it yourself then I would recommend looking here first: http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development – It tells you a bit about getting to grips with wordpress themes in general and then you can move onto bbPress which sits inside your wordpress theme.
Have you done much editing with wordpress templates? You will need to edit the bbPress template files to move the make new topic button, or do what I did and add in a new button which scrolls you down using jquery.
I downloaded the latest version of bbPress and the latest version of wordpress, did a local install probably only 5 days ago at max and then re created it using the functions from my teamoverpowered.com site.
Have you tried going to Settings > Permalinks and re-saving your permalinks, this worked for me when I local test stopped displaying the forum pages.
Download the Zip from github and then unzip it into your wordpress theme. It will take care of the rest.
So the post appears immediately in the admin area after posting, but not in the front end?
I am not sure of any plugins, but you could create one.
You could use the post_publish action – http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Action_Reference/publish_post
And then check the post type using http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/is_singular and then the email after grabbing the contents of the topic that was just posted.
