    shmoo,

    don’t think there’s any conspiracy to keep this stuff secret, rather that the clever people who write this stuff are generally the same type of people who hate documenting – they enjoy the code and getting it to do stuff, not the this is how I did it.

    I’d love to see a crib on the structure of the bbPress plugin – a list of the directories and files, and a description of what each file did – eg loop-single-forum.php does this, and content-single-topic does that etc. but unless I do one, don’t think it will happen.

    I’ll try to unravel the filter side of the plugin at some stage !

    best explanation I know is here :

    Filters Explained

    I plan to write some bbPress specific documentation for this when I get my head around it enough to pass it on (I am relatively new to wordpress as well).

    I’m afraid that I am a bit lost, because I’m not sure what you are showing me under this link.

    However if you want to remove parts of the breadcrumb you can add a function to your functions file

    eg

    function mycustom_breadcrumb_options() {
    	// Home - default = true
    	$args['include_home']    = false;
    	// Forum root - default = true
    	$args['include_root']    = false;
    	// Current - default = true
    	$args['include_current'] = true;
    
    	return $args;
    }
    
    add_filter('bbp_before_get_breadcrumb_parse_args', 'mycustom_breadcrumb_options' );

    If you want to lose the breadcrumb all together you can use

    function bm_bbp_no_breadcrumb ($param) {
    
    return true;
    
    }
    
    add_filter ('bbp_no_breadcrumb', 'bm_bbp_no_breadcrumb');

    Otherwise come back and explain a bit further about what your link is taking me to eg is this a page and what is the content of that page

    Great – glad to hear – I know the forum authors get little praise and many “suggestions for improvements” – so thanks for letting them know that it works for you.

    I think it’s a great plugin !

    Suspect that you ID bit isn’t working, hence you’re getting zeros

    I use a count code to put a total count after the avatar using

    function display_counts () 
    {
    		$post_count = bbp_get_user_post_count( bbp_get_reply_author_id( $reply_id )) ;
    		echo "<br>Total posts : " ;
    		echo $post_count ;
    		echo "</br>" ;
    
    		}
    add_action ('bbp_theme_after_reply_author_details', 'display_counts') ;
    
    

    and that works fine.

    If you doing this for the topic, then $reply_id might be worth having a go at, depends on whether the widget is doing this for the topic, or the last reply !

    Otherwise you might need to actually specify an ID (the codex talks about needing to do this if outside the loop, and your widget would not be displayed within the loop eg as in

    get_the_author_meta(‘ID’,$ID)

    where you have set $ID as the topic user probably in the loop bit.

    Don’t know, but worth having a further play

    You can remove the first “forums” by dashboard>settings>forums>forum root slug

    and unchecking “forum prefix”

    Is your “darth-forums” a category or a single forum?

    Ok, so this is a commercial developers plugins.

    http://www.gdbbpbox.com/

    Sorry, but I have no idea is they are still functioning.

    Suggest you post in their support forum and see if you get a reply !

    Your theme has a full width page option viz:

    Full Width Post

    you can create a page which is full width, and just put this shortcode onto it :

    [bbp-forum-index]

    Then your forum will display full width.

    Den – Thanks for the feedback- on review the guide was both unclear and on one point wrong !

    I have amended and updated the guide to make it both clearer and correct in step 5.

    Please continue to provide feedback – this helps others who come after you !

    If you don’t put a forum description it is not shown !

    Can you show us an example of what you want to see a description, and where you want to not see it ?

    If you fixed this – can you post for others who might find this topic at a later date

    If I understand you correctly – the breadcrumb is showing

    shop>forum

    Presume you want something else other than shop?

    The problem is that the shop page is your home page – ie if you just have http://www.ladiesbalance.com – the shop page is where you land

    In essence you need to change where your wordpress site starts from (probably in your theme), and then the forum will go there.

    Loads of people work hard on bbPress – and can I share my thanks to all those that have answered my questions over the last year !

    @robin-w

    If you want to create pages specifically to do things, then you can use shortcodes, the list of them is here

    https://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/

    so if you created a page and form instance put in the shortcode

    [bbp-login]
    

    you would have a page with a login.

    Above the shortcode you could put some rules, or tell people how to register etc.

    Try refreshing your permalinks – may or may not help !

    go into Dashboard>settings>permalinks and click save.

    Come back if that doesn’t work

    The file that displays this is loop-single-forum

    wp-content/plugins/bbpress/default/bbpress/loop-single-forum.php

    You can save a version to your theme – see

    Step by step guide to setting up a bbPress forum – part 3

    item 3 for how to do this

    If you amend the current line 31

    from

    <?php bbp_list_forums(); ?>
    

    to

    <?php bbp_list_forums(array (
    		'show_topic_count'    => false,
            'show_reply_count'    => false,
    		'separator' => '',
    		));  ?>
    
    

    It will stop it displaying the numbers in brackets after each topic.

    To display these against the items will need some code at line 42 – beyond my immediate knowledge as to what you’d put there to get it to match the list

    `

    If you want to put some rules at the top of your main forum display page, then create a normal wordpress page, type your rules in the content and then at the end put

    [bbp-forum-index]

    Put that page in your menu, and it will show the rules before showing the forum list

    WPD – This is quite simple.

    When you create a forum, on right hand side under forum attributes there is an option to make it a forum OR a category. Create it as a category, and then add forums to this category by making the forums and then making the parents of these the category forum you have just created.

    Have you got a page associated with the forum?

    If not try creating a page called “forums” with a sidebar.

    This should work.

    If not try adding the following shortcode to that page

    [bbp-forum-index]

    You can also use a plugin called bbPress WP tweaks to add a specific forum sidebar

    Suggest you disable all your plugins and try again. If this works -it is a plugin conflict, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the problem.

    Otherwise come back and we’ll help further
