bbPress Mixing with Blog Post Style

    It seems that the bbPress 2.0 plugin is using my blog posts setup for forum topics and forums list. This is an issue to me because I do not want to have post author information or the comments section to display in the forum topics.

    Here is an example: http://www.fanoop.com/forums/topic/one-more-test/

    I am using Pagelines Platform Pro theme. I have also posted this topic on their forums (http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/14742/bbpress-2.0), but it seems that it is an issue between the plugin and WordPress…

    Is there a way to separate the forums from the blog post style? I obviously don’t want to turn off commenting site wide, but this is an issue.

    Despite the inflammatory remarks from their team in the topic you linked me to, I tweeted the Pagelines guys about getting access to their forums or getting things figured out together.

    Considering you are paying them for support, I think the ball is in their court. If there’s a problem with their theme and bbPress they need to put a guy on it and send me a theme to test, similar to how StudioPress and Genesis handled it for the 2.0 release.

    If bbPress is doing something that’s causing headaches, I’m happy to fix it – the difference being that bbPress’s code is immediately accessible to them, and their themes are not to me.

    The more I have been researching, it is pointing more to an issue with my theme. I have installed other plugins, such as Facebook comments and a post author box plugin. They are not being applied to the forum posts. That leads me to believe the theme is being applied incorrectly.

    I will have to try and get an answer from the theme developer.

    @ejegirl23 jjj is working with Pagelines to try and get a solution. They should be posting updates on this thread and here: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/14742/bbpress-2.0

    I am not sure if anything was figured out on this, but I gave up on the Pagelines theme and created my own child theme based on the BuddyPress default theme.

    Now I have that extra control I needed to create a more fluid and mobile friendly design.

    Thanks for the help. I am going to mark this as resolved.

    Good to hear. Looks like Pagelines is dropping support for bbPress in future versions. A shame really. I have a good relationship with a few of their guys so I’m sure we’ll get things figured out eventually.
