    I would like to add some text to the default forums page. Is there a way to do this? Perhaps a plugin?

    Copy and paste the template files you would like to edit from the bbPress plugins folder to your theme folder.

    The Forum ‘ home-page ‘ is known as an Archive template.

    archive-forum.php

    wp-content / plugins / bbpress / templates / defaults / extras / archive-forum.php

    Copy it to your theme folder.

    wp-content / themes / [ your_theme_name ] / here

    Great method Schmoo!

    You can also create a page called “forums”, put your text there, and then add the shortcode

    [bbp-forum-indexx]

    but with only one x – sorry but even with code ticks the forum interprets this code, so cannot put it in exactly!

    by the way the page doesn’t appear as an edit option in the toolbar, so you have to edit it via the dashboard, but that is how I achieved it.

    Thank you, Shmoo. I will try it.

    Robin, I tried that first but the breadcrumbs led back to the default forums page.

    Strange works well on mine wordpress 3.5.1 bbpress 2.3.2 theme twentyten

    breadcrumbs work fine and get you back to the page

    Did you call the page forums plural?
