    Great, I misunderstood how it works. When you said mouse over, I thought the text should change to show the date. Sorry, for the misunderstanding. Thanks again.

    I don’t think it’s a problem using <? as I was able to change it to a timestamp format with that.

    I tried the simplified code, still the same problem. Only the regular freshness, no title.

    <td class="num"><a href="<?php topic_last_post_link(); ?>"><span class=timetitle title="<?php echo date("r",strtotime($topic->topic_time)); ?>"><?php topic_time(); ?></span></a></td>

    I was referring to the title in this line.

    And I’m trying to implement the code you gave above.

    I want the regular text to read the freshness and the title to hold the exact date.

    Yep, that’s it. The permission mode was the error.

    Thanks!

    Okay, here’s a screenshot of my forums directory

    I like ck’s method of displaying the dates and I tried applying her code to the front-page.php file. But when I change the code under ‘$super_stickies’ and ‘$topics’ from

    <td class="num"><a href="<?php topic_last_post_link(); ?>"><?php topic_time(); ?></a></td>

    to

    <td class="num"><a href="<?php topic_last_post_link(); ?>"><span class=timetitle title="<?php echo date("r",strtotime($topic->topic_time)); ?>"><?php topic_time(); ?></span></a></td>

    There is no change.

    If I change it to

    <td class="num"><a href="<?php topic_last_post_link(); ?>"><?php echo date("r",strtotime($topic->topic_time)); ?>"></a></td>

    I get a properly formatted time description. But I can’t get the title to work. What am i doing wrong?

    Gautam: How would I do that?

    ck: Alright, as of now, I’m running the modified kakumei theme from my bb-templates folder. I have a backup of the original files in the my-templates folder. Are there any potential issues I need to be aware of before proceeding like this?

    I suppose I’ll devote more time to solving this after I’ve customised this theme to my liking and can apply it to another.

    I see. Well, alright, you mentioned that having bbpress nested underneath wordpress is a less common method of installation. How should I go about reinstalling it in the usual manner?

    @piedpiper21

    Well, why can’t I just use the core folder for my themes?

    Nope, no luck either way.

    Yep, it’s there. Here’s my .htaccess:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Okay, I’ve triple checked everything.

    <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”http://roadtoanimation.com/forums/my-templates/kakumei/style.css&#8221; type=”text/css” />

    It’s linking to the desired file. And that file exists in the required directory. Still no results. Am I missing something here?

    And _ck_ thank you for all your help today. I admire your dedication.

    You’re saying I should edit the copy in the my-templates directory? I tried that and it doesn’t work. Shouldn’t I edit the original in bb-templates? I would assume that’s what is being read to display my theme list.

    Edit: Oh I see, it displays themes in both directories. Changing that line of code has disabled all graphics on that theme though haha. Let me have a closer look at what I messed up.

    Edit 2: Okay this doesn’t seem right. I deleted the folder and just copied the kakumei theme over to the my-templates directory. Checked my admin panel and the theme shows up, but with a blank sample image. If I activate it, I get a site that looks HTML coded. Devoid of any graphics and adorned with the big shiny Times New Roman font. The same happens with Kakumei Blue. Hmm, I’ll download a free theme and see if it’s an unrelated issue.

    Edit 3: Yep, seems to be an issue with reading themes in the my-templates folder. I uploaded the Crystal theme to both of the folders, same problem. The core theme displays fine, the user theme, not as fine haha. I think it’s time to call in the experts.

    Oh wait a minute. I could still change it manually right? Could you point me to the associated file? I’d like to modify it to mention that the email will be used in case of a password reset.

    Ah a minor issue. I’ve installed it and it works fine, I’d just like to erase the little text at the top that says “Your password will be sent to this email address”. I checked the register.php file and didn’t find it there. Could someone point me in the right direction?

    Newbie error. There was an extra directory level in the unzipped folder. *slaps forehead*

    Thanks for your help!

    Okay, let me rephrase. I want to install my forum on roadtoanimation.com/forums/

    When I upload the forums to the /forums directory, I can install bbPress. However, during the installation it insists that the link be roadtoanimation.com/forums/bbpress/. If I try to modify the address during installation, I get the Page Not Found error later on.

    How can I install it so that my forums appear on roadtoanimation.com/forums/ ?

    Edit: Yes Chrishajer, I followed that earlier on. The problem is that the assigned URL becomes roadtoanimation.com/forums/bbscript. How do I remove that /bbscript from it?

    By root, do you mean my public_html folder? If so, I’ve already tried that.
