Even more. On front end moderators can only publish forums inside child forums.
1) Publish forum on parent level
2) Publish forum on child level directly below parent level.
1) Publish forum on grandchild level (inside a child forum thats sits inside a parent forum)
Is that as expected or maybe a bug?In reply to: bbPress breadcrumb forum root link issue
The problem is if you create a page with the same slug as your forum index and insert the forum index shortcode, this page will just be a page that happens to contain bbpress content. It isn’t a real bbpress page.
If you would like your index page (mysite.com) as your forum index how can you make that a real forum page? NOT just a page that contains bbpress content.
You can’t set your forum root index to nothing cause this will make default value (forums) to reappear. Of course you can 301 redirect /forums to index page. But as mentioned, this will display a page with forum content. NOT a real forum page.
Appreciate any kind of suggestions.
Any one? Please…
How do I create a custom index page that is actually a bbpress-page and NOT an ordinary wordpress page that happens to have bbpress-content in it?
The problem with the suggestion that Robin offers is that his own plugin (bbp style pack) won’t recognize the custom page as a bbpress page.
If I’m being stupid and missing something obvious please let me know.
Thanks for your reply.
This might seem obvious for the creator of bbpress. But it really isn’t. I think you need to drop the word “partner” cause that is really confusing.
This doesn’t do anything other than adds a page that you can add to your navigation. You could instead basically add a custom link to your navigation because the page itself isn’t displayed since you have the same slug as you set for forum root index. The default bbpress index will be displayed. Having a wordpress-page is just confusing since nothing added to that page is displayed.
This method doesn’t mention the slug at all so I presume the slug here is different then the one set as forum root index. Fine. Name your page anything and add anything along with the shortcode [bbp-forum-index]. There you have it. You think…
You think you have customized your forum index page. But in fact that page is just a non-bbpress page that happens to have bbpress content in it. How so?
1) Your breadcrumb forum index link will still display the default index page.
2) And if you use the bbp style pack to add login-logout-buttons to your navigation it won’t recognize your custom index page as a bbpress-page. (The buttons won’t display when option is set to only display on forum pages)
Maybe it’s just me, but If I create my own index page, of course I want that page to be the index page linked to in the breadcrumbs as well.
So. I’m struggling with the word “partner” here. In my mind it says a wordpress page can partner with bbpress and act as the forum index page. As a replacement not as an addition. It can’t be that you should have TWO different index pages, can it?
So, how do I create a custom forum index page that is recognized as a forum page and acts as the forum index page in the breadcrumbs?

Thanks for your suggestion!
If I understand it correctly it doesn’t seem to offer what I am looking for. The only feature is to group forums.
The forum index page is not dealt with at all.
