    I’m trying to add things to the header but is not working out for me, I have modified headers in the past on wordpress, but bbpress header is different. Everytime I try I get an error. I just want to add a shortcut back to my homepage but html is not working for a simple shortcut on bbpress header. Can anyone help me on this?

    Make sure you aren’t inserting the html inside a block of PHP. Can you post the code here for better analysis?

    Back to LuMen Home Page

    Same one I use in the footer, the problem is that my theme header is not a normal header found across wordpress installations. Any clue?

    sorry my html is so good that kicked back as a shortcut

    “< a href=”http://www.lumencreativegroup.com” >back to Lumen Home Page” without the ” “.

    I meant the post the whole header file. Place the code between backticks to show it properly here.

    Sam my friend,

    Is this on the theme header or somewhere else, because my bbpress theme header is actually one line of code, everytime I try to change it messes up the installation. When I get home I’ll post the few letters my header has. Thanks.

    have you got a mac, by any chance?

    when i opened my header.php in textedit, it contained a single ‘>’, and every time i put anything else in the file, it would display as plain text.

    if i deleted it all, typed ‘>’ as before, and saved, the header was all gone. very odd.

    if i downloaded the bbpress zip file again, and replaced the header.php with the original, bbpress was fine.

    i opened header.php through cpanel on the server and the full contents were displayed.

    there’s definitely something weird going on with that file.

    circuit – Try TextWrangler ( http://www.barebones.com/products/textwrangler/ ) instead of textEdit on a Mac. It’s MUCH better and handles my php files perfectly.

    Also it’s free :)

    thanks for the tip!
