Can I edit the stock forum root page

    @avgmatt

    I have my forum all set up about how I want it and I am using the stock root /forums as the forum front page. How do I go about adding to the main area above and below the forum? I would like to add items such as banners or use shortcodes for topic info. Where would this root page file be located?

    Thank You
    Matt

    The easiest way to do this is to make a WordPress page with the same slug as your forum root. bbPress will see that page and yield to it, letting it render instead of your forums.

    In that page’s content, use the bbp-forum-index shortcode, along with any other HTML, shortcodes, or whatever else you want there. You can get really fancy with your forum index using modifications in a child theme, custom template parts, page templates, forum archives, etc…

    Thanks. I was hoping it was that easy. Is there a list of bbpress shortcodes somewhere?
