    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.

    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

    googled ‘thesis theme & bbpress’ and got several hits saying that bbpress doesn’t function with thesis, and a link to a plugin that might fix it – worth a try or some more googling !

    hmm, suspect that the category no base might be the issue, but you’ve said you’ve tried it with it disabled.

    what theme are you using – try switching to a default one eg twentytwelve and see if the issue is theme related.

    Has topics stopped working, or has never worked, or is this a new install?

    ok, plan b

    upload the “widget logic” plugin

    This lets you set widgets to appear in certain conditions

    Once uploaded, using your normal sidebar, you can set when a widget appears

    You’ll see a new box appear when you add/edit each widget saying “widget logic”. if you want it to appear on a forum page type

    is_bbpress()
    If you want the widget to appear on other pages, but not obn the forum page type

    !is_bbpress()
    so you login widget would have the logic

    is_bbpress()
    and appear only on forum pages

    If you didn’t want search on the forum page, you’d put

    !is_bbpress()
    on that widget and it will not appear

    The forum – http://massagepracticebuilder.com/forums/forum/diy-websites/

    shows as a forum with no topics. Create topics there and it should all work.

    The path is basically forums/forum/diy-websites
    /forums – ie we are in the forums area
    /forum – we are in the forum list area
    /diy-websites – this is the diy website forum

    you’ll get /topic when you post a topic.

    ok, I have 2.5.1 bbpress working with WP 3.8 on a twentyten child.

    I suggest that each of you :

    Disables all of your plugins. If that fixes, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the issue
    If disabling plugins doesn’t work, then with them disabled, switch to a default theme – twentyten, twenty eleven or twentytwelve. If that works, then your theme has an issue
    If any/none of that works, comes back and say exactly what you did
    If you get a fix, let us know what was causing it to help others

    Thanks for that – I’ll post a link to it in the bbpress documentation

    Are your users “registered” ?

    If so you can just make the forums “hidden”

    You should have a forums tab above appearance, and forums in the settings tab.

    I’d un-install and re-install

    As far as I can see it all looks ok. Presume you have permalinks and that the forum slugs set as directed.

    If so try this – sometikes the bbpress sidebar doesn’t quite get there.

    Deactivate bbpress tweaks
    Dashboard>plugins>bbpress tweaks>deactivate

    Go into widgets
    Dashboard>appearance>widgets

    And look at the bottom of the left hand side. You’ll see an “inactive sidebar”, with your entries on
    Below this is an “inactive widgets”
    Drag all the entries from the inactive sidebar to the inactive widgets area.
    This then allows wordpress to delete the sidebar
    I normally log out and in again at this stage – probably not needed, but I’ve never bothered to check
    Then basically reverse the above
    Re-enable bbpress tweaks
    You see the bbpress sidebar returns
    Drag the entries back from the inactive widgets area to the sidebar

    If this works, come back and let me know
