    Hello,
    I just installed bbpress on my site. I created a page which is called “Forums”. I chose the default template. Every thing is working except the display is not organized as the plan.

    What web server are you using? Windows (IIS)? (If so you can apply this fix manually or wait for bbPress 2.5.1.

    If not can you give us some more specifics on how your website is setup?

    hi Stephen, I am using Window Xampp Apache (3.1.0.3.1.0). I guess that I am not using Window IIS.
    more information as the following base on the research.

    I installed bbpress & buddypress on my site which has pitch theme. I suspect this could be from my theme formatting the bbpress forums this way.the pitch theme is working perfectly. I created a page which is called “Forums”(forum index page). I chose the default template. My forum index page is just a bunch of bullet points listing each text for the topics

    example:

    I also asked that Pitch theme is compatibly with bbpress and buddypress or not.

    Thank you

    Stephen, fyi. I believe that I have the same problem like this one. http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/why-is-forum-index-in-bullet-points/
    I am also asking them how did they fix it.

    thank you

    I use XAMPP locally and I never had this issue, I am using XAMPP 1.8.3 from http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

    What is “Window Xampp Apache (3.1.0.3.1.0)” and where can I find it to download and test with?

    We have a patch ready to ship with bbPress 2.5.1

    http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2481

    If you could test that patch that would be great, I have tested it on XAMPP 1.8.3 , Apache, IIS and a couple of other systems but we’d like some feedback on the patch before we release 2.5.1 to make sure we haven’t broken something else. :)

    Hello Stephen,
    1) I am using XAMPP1.8(3) locally. I chose XAMPP for Windows. I did install it over 1 year ago. so I do not remember well, but it is from the same location: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html.
    2)What is “Window Xampp Apache (3.1.0.3.1.0)” – I found this info on XAMPP control panel. it is version 3.1.0.3.1.0. but it is not right information for you. :)
    3)We have a patch ready to ship with bbPress 2.5.1

    http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2481

    I do not know how to install the patch. can you provide the detail steps? I would love to test it. I also do updates/installation inside the wordpress panel. so I do not know how to manually do patch.:)

    4) If the patch is not working, how can un-install it or what should I do? so I can have recovery plan.

    Happy thanksgiving!!!

    thank you

    @brucedongcaigmailcom Thanks for that info, helps to make sure we have all the bases covered :)

    Probably an easier way would be to download the entire file using this link

    http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/export/5210/branches/2.5/includes/core/template-functions.php

    Save that to your PC and then with an FTP program upload it to your web host in this folder /public_html/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/core

    p.s. Just let me know if it doesn’t work
