    bbpress Version 2.3.2
    wordpress Version 3.5.1
    Hi, I am looking for a way to order all forums (not topics) alphabetically. I read some posts here and they refer to a bbp-forum-template.php in the includes folder but this file is no longer inside this file. Can anybody tell me which file to edit and line number to do this?

    It’s possible, and you probably could’ve found it with some searching, like I did: http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-2-plugin-forum-order-doesnt-work-not-appearing-in-correct-order/#post-112828

    The file that’s referenced isn’t in the same place anymore–I believe it’s in plugins/bbpress/includes/forums/template-tags.php these days.

    Keep in mind it’ll get written over with the original code with each update, though.

    Thanks, I did already look at that thread. It’s the thread where I found out about bbp-forum-template.php

    I think I will create a child theme to fix any overwriting during updates. Thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately this only orders the main forums listing by title. For instance if you click a category the forums listed under the category will not be ordered by title. I have just got dreamweaver though so running a search in the plugin folder should uncover other places to edit, although I imagine the sheer amount of ‘orderby’ in this folder will be immense so I will just have to do some trial and error to work my way through.
