How to Change Permalink Because It's a Localized Forum

    I’m considering bbpress for one of my most popular community in Bangladesh. I looked at other forum software but bbpress seemed perfect for me as it runs within WordPress. I’m running bbpress as a plugin. Now, my forum is on Bangla language. So, each time a topic is created, the slug becomes unicode character like this: /ফোরাম-টপিক

    As you can see, it’s really ugly-looking as well as bad for sharing links. For my blog, I’ve chosen the permalink as /post-id/{id}. I would like to do the same for bbpress (something like PunBB). How can I do so?

    Just to clarify, your wordpress permalinks are already set as /post-id/{id} and bbPress is not using this permalink structure? I am not sure if bbPress is setup to be able to use a different permalink structure…

    Hi,

    No, WordPress permalink isn’t affecting bbpress forum posts. It’s taking its slugs from the topic title instead of using post-id.

    I am having the same problem where bbPress grabs the non-English characters to create the topic slug.

    Is there a way for bbPress to use post ID instead of post name?
