    After a few days tweaking and tinkering I think I am finally at a point where I am happy with the current way my forum looks.

    I am going to be adding as much useful information and tools around the forums as possible, but I am really enjoying bbPress at the moment.

    Theme: Custom based off twentyten
    Forum: bbPress 2.1
    Mobile Theme: jQuery Mobile (works really nice apart from the forums).

    Check it out, let me know what you think, good or bad!

    P.s. I am not a designer so the design could look interesting in parts of the site lol, thanks for your time in checking it out!

    Wow I found out last night that my whole forum exploded in IE!!

    I had to go through and do a huge amount of changes to get it working. My markup was not nesting correctly, doh!

    IE was actually useful, who knew.

    I’m on Chrome 21, and I don’t see anything in any of the “Last Poster” fields.

    You should post the tweaks you made to get the slick the category/sub-forum setup. That’s a common request around here, plus I’m just curious which way you went about it :)

    I started working on a theme where I was doing that and it ended up being a PITA.

    @Erlend is chrome 21 a beta version? If it is then I won’t be testing on that until it is fully released.

    @Jaredatch I did a lot of customization, but the big thing I did was setup my own function inside the bbpress_functions.php – It is basically the same as the bbp_list_forums but it has a flag for freshness_block which then calls my last_poster block function.

    It is pretty awesome, I could put something up even more detailed if people would like.

    You should post it or create a gist of it :)

    I’m working on creating some 2.1 themes to release (for free, naturally) and my goal is to have one that has a structure very similar to what you did on your forum – which looks great!

    Thanks! I have put up a topic showing how I created the subforum setup.

    The post has temporarily gone missing but I am hoping it will get displayed soon! I suppose it might of got put into spam because of the length of the message, if such a thing exists?

    jjj said he tried to find your post but couldn’t dig it up, so maybe it didn’t go through. You’ll have to repost it :(

    Indeed it does look good, and looks good in Chrome 22 ;)

    Along with Chrome as my default browser I do all my ‘dev’ stuff in ‘Chrome Canary’ which allows for a ‘side-by-side install’ so that I can run Canary and Chrome Stable at the same time.

    Oh nice thanks for the tip netweb! That is pretty awesome, I have always wanted to “Get on the bleeding edge of the web” lol, great tagline.

    Hopefully there isn’t too many issues with the CSS but I find it does get quite complicated between the main forum pages and then the subforum pages aswell.
