Forum Replies Created
I didn’t look much further for a solution to have a single topic shared between forums and instead duplicated the topic and moved to the second forum. Sadly this means replies were specific to each unique topic and not shared in thread.
Sorry I don’t have a better solution for you, I just used the Duplicate Post plugin to create the duplicate topics.
If you find a solution post here as I’d be interested.
For sure, I thought so myself. They use groups for organizing their course students and found certain topics make sense being shared among courses.
Appreciate the thought I’ll start there when I start diving into the project.
Would love if it was that simple, sadly the clients wants to be able to have topics shared among multiple forums. I’ll be looking into this again in a month and will post any solutions as I come across them.
You can check out the documentation here – https://codex.bbpress.org/
If you’d like assistance with anything specific I suggest opening a new topic as this is an old unrelated one so no one is going to read your post.
I did notice you’re with wordpress.com and not a self-hosted wordpress.org instance so you won’t be able to use bbPress as it’s an installable plugin for wordpress.org instances. You can look into creating a free forum on another site, more information here;
I’ve also opened this onto Buddypress as it may make more sense as a Buddypress feature since Group Forums provide membership capabilities so users only have access to certain group forums and topcis.

Greatly appreciated, that did the trick for me. I only needed to apply for the forum post type as topics and replies don’t reside on their own pages so isn’t needed in the switch statement.
I wasn’t able to pinpoint the cause so I’ve opened with WordPress support here;
I appreciate that, I’ll go through some CPTs next week and play with the settings to see what the cause is and if it’s a setting will notify bbpress, etc. Otherwise if it’s a general CPT issue will raise with WordPress.
Enjoy your weekend
Thanks @robkk, I installed Twenty Fifteen and although it’s not visually apparent if you inspect the blog item in the menu you’ll find the ‘current_page_parent’ class on it’s li.
What’s the best course of action for me to take in notifying the bbpress team of the bug?
