Yeah I did. It’s been so long though I’m trying to remember what I had to do. I know that I ended up not using the BBPress login widget and instead went with the “WP Login Box” widget. I had to do some configuring on the settings I think but was able to set the whole thing up to where users were only able to login to their BBPress account and not have backdoor access to the wordpress site itself.
I think it had something to do with wordpress making an update where they screwed up default cookie configurations. I went looking in my wp-config file and found that I put this there. Truth is I can’t remember if this was for the same problem or something else, it’s been a while since I was last working in wordpress. Try putting this in your wp-config.php file after your last set of “defines” near the top. Hope that helps.

I figured out how to do this and more, unfortunately I have found little documentation about using the extras folder in the BBPress template files and how really wonderful they are for advanced customization without the use of additional hooks.
EXTRAS Folder located at:
To increase the amount of items you can customize in your bbpress theme, copy pages from out of here and paste them into the folder:
In this case I needed to customize the individual topic page titles so I copied single-topic.php from out the extras folder pasted it into the bbpress folder. Then I opened up my theme’s page.php file and compared which style, entry-content, and container tags needed to be pasted into the single-topic.php page. I then exchanged
bbp_forum_title()and styled it with my default WordPress styling tags and placed the topic title below it in a smaller more reasonable font than my site’s default .entry-title style.
The end result is the topic page displaying the forum name up at the top in the site-standard page styling with the topic title below it in a smaller reasonable font, as topics are generally WAY LONGER and should not be styled with the site’s main title styles by default.
