In reply to: Tips: forum theme
Note to others looking for tips: I found BuddyX theme. Its free and seems to solve issues with bbpress and buddypress in one go. Thus far its a good solution for my site atleast 😊👍
haha makes sense when you say it! 😂👍
I see though that my custom forum root disappears and only “forum” shows in the url with that unticked. Is it possible to make it the other way around – so that the “forum” disappears and my custom forum root is showing?
Many thanks! 🙏 Will it create any problems changing it or why is this function like this (wouldnt everybody like it unticked I mean?)?
Now I feel really stupid 🙈 Many thanks I will try that 😊
I tried this [bbp-single-forum id=1] on a new testpage and it did not show anything – just a blanc wordpress page. Do I need to write anything else than [bbp-single-forum id=1] to make it work?
Ok, thanks 🙏In reply to: Two Indexes on One Website
Did this work out as you planned Willyth?
I am looking to do the same and wondering. I have 290 forums in one category which I would like to have as one forum index on one page and then the rest = two categories and about 15 forums on a main forum index.
Is this split possible? To summarize in other words: as of now I have 3 categories which would be split into 1 forum index with 1 category and another forum index with 2 categories.
Thank you Robin 😊
About the notes. Would you recommend a excel file logging everything I do with any code; for example which files (path) and which line/lines etc?
I have done some changes when reading some easy codes that I understood how to add etc. But dont remember them by now 😅
Excuse me for asking before trying more myself. Manage to fix my question above, looking at the plugin file and changing the permalink name in there. Did not know I could change plugin files myself 🙂
I re-did my permalinks to be Swedish. And ofc this page disappeared and I paniced before I realized this plug in made it possible. I wonder if I can somehow change step 4 above, so that I can use permalink = “min-profil” instead?
Robin you son of a wordpress god! That works!! haha amazing – please let me know how to send you some money 🙌
I dont have a child theme and I dont know how to make one either, sorry to say. So that leaves us to baby plugin – which I dont know what it is 😅 hehe
Is there no way I could add the profile as I did with the forum index? It was super easy just using [bbp-forum-index] 😍
Using wp/my theme top menu. I have a roll down menu with some forum “things” I like to have, and one of those is the forum users profile.
Just the profile 🙂
(If possible also a “change password” and “log out” button within the bbpress profile – this is being fixed by a guy I am paying atm)
Robin, I am amazed at your support and help. It feels like you ARE bbpress somehow. Hope you feel the appreciation you deserve. Big thank you for your replies 🙂
To my concern/friendly question:
“[bsp-profile] will show ‘My Profile’ in a clickable link to the profile” – it fixes a link if added to a new page. I want it to show the profile directly on the page without pressing a link first 🙂
If I am using [bbp-forum-index] on a page, then the forum shows directly on that page. Not a link 🙂 Thus I was wondering if there is any way to do the same for the profile of a user? Because I would like it to show on a specific new page I have. Hope that explains it better.
I have you eminent plug in and love it already 🙂 And already checked the shortcodes there. However there is only a shortcode to add a button/text to press that links to the profile. I would love a shortcode as the [bbp-forum-index] but for example [bbp-forum-profile]. Cant find any but maybe there is non?
I tried the health check plugin and no health issues atleast 🙂
Well I might try this. I just started paying a guy to do custom css and I would cry a river if that disappeared.
Oh my! Many thanks uksentinel! That worked for taking away the search bar above the forum and keeping the sidebar.
Offtopic/sidenote: for every thing I do on my page I feel really proud of my self. Never knew I could even get a site up and running. Now I am doing code (however with extremely good guides from you guys ofc!) and I feel amazing 🙂 Thank you for helping out!
Many thanks Robin 🙂 A stupid question before proceeding. Will my changes, payed css etc be saved in my theme if I am testing to switch to twentytwenty and back?
Hello. I am trying to understand how to remove the search bar from the forum but not for the sidebar (where I want it to be all the time). If I uncheck “allow forum search” in the admin panel in WP both disappears. Is the only other way the above way?
I am asking before doing anything, because that sound really difficult to me with zero experience with coding or webpages. I am learning by doing 🙂
PS. Could it be any issue because I installed WP using one.com “one click install”?
Many thanks I will give it a try. However there is so many things that is not working properly so its starting to become a case for some freelancer site. I dont really know what I am doing 🙂
I read your guide: https://codex.bbpress.org/step-by-step-guide-to-setting-up-a-bbpress-forum/
But I cant get the forum to display using method 1 in the above guide. And method 2 is the one I have done from the start but cant get to look the way i want.
If the plugin “bbp style pack” fix the design, there is still the issue with weird menus and different urls within the forum etc. Could it be that I created the forum before changing WP-theme? Could it help to remove BB-press and then reinstall it from the ground up?
Thank you very much, that plugin of yours looks really neat 🙂 But its annoying that my forum has correct theme when I click in to the forum and uses the internal bbpress links… Like its some other forumpagetheme activated depending on which url I use. Also something happens using the different links. Its not only the theme that changes but also the page it self. Seems weird to me.
