Suggestion: Make BBP adhere to normal custom post type template hierarchy rules
BBP currently tries to add all its forum stuff to any activated WP theme by using the page.php template. I think it would make a lot of sense if it followed the standard template hierarchy for custom post types.
Usually, if you have a custom post type – say ‘product’ – you can override the template for that kind of post by making a specific template for it (i.e. single-product.php).
However, as far as I can see, BBP doesn’t allow this. If I create a file called ‘single-topic.php’, BBP doesn’t use this for displaying single topics. Instead I’m locked into using page.php. That’s annoying if I want my pages to have a sidebar, for example, but my forums to be full-width.
