    Hi All,

    I have just added bbPress 2.3.2 to my wordpress site but I am unsure as to whether or not I have set up the forum correctly. wanted to add a discussion forum to my wordpress site whatcamerasbest.com so I added a new forum in bbPress called “What Cameras Best Forum”.

    My question is should the url display http://www.whatcamerasbest.com/forum to take me to to the landing page of the forum or should it display (as it is now) like this:

    http://whatcamerasbest.com/forums/forum/whatcamerasbestforum/

    If it is correct then how do i remove the “add topic” box on whats supposed to be my forum landing page.

    I have seen this question asked a few times but the responses range so apologies if I am repeating a question.

    On a side note I found logging into this forum to be a bit of pain, I entered my wordpress username and password but the forum kept telling me to log in to post…

    Many thanks in advance.

    You probably have a misunderstanding of the word Forum and Forums it happens a lot.

    A Forum is a common name for a support forum like we have at WordPress of bbPress or any other website online. They all call the page Forum or Support or Community.
    But a Forum can also be ONE single item like a category inside other Forums. Thats why the landing-page you’re looking for is: yourwebiste.com/forums/ ( list all forums together )

    But you can make your own landing-page by going into WordPress backend and Add a New Page + paste one of those Shortcodes to make it more easy.
