Put each subforum on own line?

    @nykess

    By default, the subforums look like this:

    subforum1, subforum2, subforum3, subforum4, etc.

    I want for it to look like this:

    subforum1
    subforum2
    subforum3
    subforum4
    etc.

    How can I accomplish this?

    The full docs for bbp_list_forums is here http://codex.bbpress.org/bbp_list_forums/

    The quick and easy way is via this topic where you can add the code from that gist to your themes functions.php

    there is a way to do it, someone posted few lines of code last year.. and it works. BUT I cannot find it now here on the forums, and I can’t remember how it was done :((

    please search bbpress forums

    After giving it some thought, how can I edit this code so that it puts the subforums into two or three columns instead of one column only?

    function custom_bbp_list_forums() {
      $args['separator'] = '<br />';
     
      return $args;
    }
     
    add_filter('bbp_before_list_forums_parse_args', 'custom_bbp_list_forums' );

    You kind of only have two options, the default bbPress behaviour like this:

    • My Parent Category/Forum
    • My 1st Child Forum (78, 425), My 2nd Child Forum (18, 107)

    Or using the <br /> as the separator:

    • My Parent Category/Forum
    • My 1st Child Forum (78, 425)
    • My 2nd Child Forum (18, 107)

    Each element is returned as a whole so My 1st Child Forum (78, 425) and My 2nd Child Forum (18, 107) CANNOT be broken down further for multiple columns like this (which I think you are alluding to:

    • My Parent Category/Forum
    • My 1st Child Forum78425
    • My 2nd Child Forum18107

    Thank you for your reply. What I would like to do is this:

    • Subforum 1 (0, 0)Subforum 2 (0, 0)
    • Subforum 3 (0, 0)Subforum 4 (0, 0)
    • Subforum 5 (0, 0)Subforum 6 (0, 0)
    • etc.

    Your going to have to use $args['separator'] = ' '; (Either a blank space or empty) and then use some CSS to style the bbp-forum-list element.

    If I could use divs or something, I could do it, but using only CSS I don’t know how I would do that. Can you help?

    Thanks.

    It is not really me expertise, check out what suggestions the author of the theme you are using on your site may have.

    this code should put sub forums the way you want, add it to your functions.php child theme

    function custom_bbp_list_forums() {
    $args['separator'] = ‘<br />’;

    return $args;
    }

    add_filter(‘bbp_before_list_forums_parse_args’, ‘custom_bbp_list_forums’ );

    Yes, that’s already the code I’m using, but I am looking now to add two columns. Please look through thread.

    Thank you.
