I’m working on what you said.
I’m a little stuck on the shortcodes. To display a single topic, the short code needs an ID code, but I’m not sure what the ID code or name is for each of my topics.
I’ve played with a few obvious choices, but nothing is working yet.
Yeah, I’m getting that impression.
Can I make a theme for just bbPress without effecting my WordPress theme?
My original question was this: I have BBP 2.x. When my users click on “Forum” on my menu, I would like it to look like THIS forum that I am on right now.
I’m not a php coder and I haven’t figuered out how to make a theme just yet. I’ve only been at this for a little while.
I’m working on it, but I’m not there yet.
I’m running twenty-eleven with my WordPress right now. Does anyone know a painless way to get my BBPress to look like bbpress.org when my users click on it?
Are you following this thread? I’d love to hear your spin on it. How can we get the 2.x BBP to look like this site?
I was able to get this partially accomplished using the Members Only plug in. Also, it helped a lot to put all my forums in a category, even though I do not have very many forums. At least, now the only thing my non-users will see is the goofy message “Oh brother. No forums where found here”, even though I do indeed have forums.
HOWEVER, I still have the problem of the Forum Menu item appearing in my menu bar. I don’t know how to keep it out until users log in.
I’ve spent the better part of a day fiddling with it and still it is here.
If I can figure out which file has the “Oh Brother!” text in it, I could at least change it to say something like “This area requires user authorization”.
Same question from me! I would really appreciate knowing this one.
Ok, I have BBPress working fairly well with one exception. I’m using WordPress Access Control and WP-Members to limit user access. My website is a completely closed, member-only site for my employee group. However, the BB Press forums appear on the main menu to unregistered visitors, unlike everything else that remains invisible until I validate them. How do I get BB Press to remain hidden until my users get bumped p in status?
Is there a way to have BB Press totally accessed via a page, so that I can control the page the same way I control other pages?
Same thing goes for my “CALENDAR” page. I have it set to PRIVATE. When a visitor hits the CALENDAR menu item, I get:
This is somewhat embarrassing, isn’t it?
It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching, or one of the links below, can help.
How do I get it to just tell the user “You have to log on to see this” ?
I have it working much better now.
I have it so that a visitor can see the home page and all of the menu items. Thats fine.
I have set some of the items on the menu to PRIVATE, so they should not be able to access those areas without being logged on.
When they hit my “discussions” item on the menu, they get a message that says “Oh bother! No forums were found here!.
Is there a way to give them a message that says “You must log on to access this area” instead?
OK, I can access my forum page from the menus now, but even though my forums are set to PRIVATE, the menu lets any web user access to the forum area. How do I set up the menu item to PRIVATE?
Fantastic! Thank you. Now all I need to do is get the font size reduced in the Forum area and I’m set.
Is there an easy place to do that?
This is what it looks like right now. Now very pretty.:
OK, here’s progress. I changed the permalinks from DEFAULT to POST NAME, and using the /forums/ url brought up my forum.
So, how do I get the WP menu to have Forums in it so my users know that it is there?
I followed your instructions. Permalinks are set to Default. When I go to the /forums/ url, I get a 404 error page.
