    Has this just started happening?

    It could be a theme or plugin issue

    Plugins

    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    Themes

    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentytwelve, and see if this fixes.

    I suspect it is your theme, but carry out the tests above, and then come back !

    Robin W, Thank you for the ideas. This is the first time I’ve used bbPress, so I have nothing to compare it with. I tried your idea of deactivating all other themes and that did not change the Forum problem. I am currently unable to test deactivating the theme because the site owner just paid Facebook to boost a post that would drive visitors to our site. So it’s a bad time to put the site in maintenance mode, even briefly. Hope that will change in the next day or so. I am using HeadwayThemes and I have posted in the forum there. I found a conversation on http://support.headwaythemes.com/discussion/comment/166604#Comment_166604 about a problem between HeadwayThemes and the bbPress search function, but saw nothing like the problem I have with the replies appearing above the posts.

    In the HeadwayTheme, the forum is appearing in the content block. The content block let’s me do custom query filters. In the query filters settings, I’ve told it to include the post type forums. And I’ve tried both ascending/descending order. Nothing puts the replies BELOW the topics.

    hmm, strongly suspect that the content block is your issue

    come back when you’ve tried a default theme, so we can concentrate on headway.

    I presume you’ve posted a query on their support forum as well?

    We resolved the issue. It was not related to the Headway theme, but rather it was an improper setting in the plugin bbPress – Sort topic replies. Here is the proper setting:

    Always show lead Topic YES
    Shows the original post at the top of each page

    Robin W, thank you for your quick response! This thread could now be closed.

    This is not a bbpress forum setting that I’ve seen, it is one added by a plugin? and where is it shown?

    I had installed a plugin called bbPress – Sort topic replies. It was from http://sandyrig.com/about
    I thought I had installed it after bbPress when I found the replies showing above the topics, but it did not resolve the issue until I set it properly.

    @ingenuity – thanks for posting that it will help anyone searching the forums at some future date :-)
