    ok, so you’ll need to edit

    web/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/loop-single-reply.php

    line 45 shows the avatar, so try adding a line 46

    <?php echo bbp_get_user_post_count( $user_id ); ?>

    haven’t tried it !

    @robin-w

    so what is showing now as the sidebar – is this your blog sidebar?

    @robin-w

    OR !!

    You could change the bbpress background to match your site, so that the lettering can stay the same

    If you like that better, I’ll work out what needs changing !

    @robin-w

    That color is set by your parament theme css

    wp-content/themes/parament/style.css

    Line 81 sets this color, the code wrapping it is

    a {
        color: #989EAE;
        text-decoration: none;
    }

    change the color line to

    color: #000000;

    You can :
    edit this file to change it, but any theme updates will overwrite it, so you’ll need to keep a record of what you changed.
    or create a child theme to overwrite this
    or use a plugin such as jetpack to add it using their css editor

    For child themes google “creating a child theme video” to see lots on how to do this.

    Not sure I understand what your problem is, but let’s try this in case !

    When you create a new user, then only the blog role shows. If you save and then go back in and edit that user, you’ll see the wordpress roles at the bottom of the page which you can then set.

    “under the user” where do you mean?
    You’ll see topic and reply counts when you display the user’s profile.

    please post a link to a page where you want it displayed

    If WP tweaks doens’t work, then other solutions are unlikely to without resolving why WP tweaks doesn’t – basically it just adds a custom sidebar as part of it’s plugin.

    What theme are you using, and can you post a link to the current forum

    It depends on the size of your old bb, but should take less than 30 minutes for any install.

    Has this problem just started happening? have you upgrade or changed anything?

    Is your forum public? If so can you post a link to it, so that we can see the problem

    ok.
    In 99% of cases this file will not have changed in the update, but all bbpress update plugins will overwrite this file, so you’ll lose your change.

    Therefore you can have two strategies.

    1. do the update – this will overwrite the code. Then go back in to this file and just put your two lines of code back. You might need to check that the file hasn’t altered around line 24, so might need to alter where you put it.

    2. Copy the file using FTP to your PC. Following an update, inspect the new content-single-topic to see if the file has been altered. Very high chance it hasn’t. If not, then just FTP back the file on your PC. If it has altered, you’ll need to copy the two ,lines fo code and put them back in the right place.

    username

    Yes you will set each one up.

    Go into Dashboard>users>add new user

    In there you will see a box to uncheck that they don’t see the toolbox, a wordpress role – I set to none for this site.

    Once you have set them up and clicked save, then go back in to edit that user and you’ll see at the bottom options for their bbpress, which you’ll set to participant.

    This will take you several stages but should get you where you want to be

    1. For your forum page

    Create a page called forum or forums. In the body of the page type the following code

    [bbp-forum-index]

    And save

    If your menu auto-creates then this will appear, if not go into dashboard>appearance>menus

    2. Create a register form

    Download contact form 7

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/

    set up a page called ‘register’, and put a registration for in there

    3. Download bbpress WP tweaks

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress-wp-tweaks/

    This will give you a bbpress sidebar that your forum page will use

    Go into dashboard>appearance>widgets and populate this with

    (bbpress) login widget

    The url for register will be the page you set up under 2 – so populate this with “/register”, and the lost password url will be “/lost-password”

    (bbpress) forums list

    (bbpress) recent topics

    (bbpress) recent replies

    And anything else you want to add

    4. When someone sends in a form (it’ll be emailed to you) then you can set them up, and ensure that they don’t get the toolbar. They will have “no role for this site” for wordpress, and “participant” form bbpress.

    That should be enough to get you going, but come back if you need more !

    Ok, few thoughts

    1. Is you intention to have a site with a forum page, or is the forum the whole site? This will determine the best way to get your users onto the forum, let me know and I’ll advise further
    2. I don’t like giving users the dashboard – it takes away from look and feel of the site and shows them the backend. I disable the toolbar in users profile.
    3. I don’t let my users auto register – unless you plan to have high levels of users it is better to let them manually resister. I have a simple form that they complete and gets auto emailed to me. I then set them up manually. If you forums are private, then you wouldn’t want anyone being able to auto access anyway would you?
    4. you need to assign your topics to forums, and make those forums private for the participant role to then be able to see them

    Your first “forum” is actually your home page – most people run forums as a sub to their main site -the site sort of thinks it is displaying

    home>forums>Digital terrestrial

    Interesting thread here

    How do I edit bbPress breadcrumbs?

    Which makes me think this plugin might be what you need to lose the “home” page bit in the breadcrumb.

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress-string-swap/

    It that doesn’t work, come back and I’ll try to work out where in the plugin you put some code.

    I presume you are not the administrator of this site, so you’ll need to get the admin to give you privilege to access this area.

    tried to sign up for an account so that I can see this, but the signup worked, but login didn’t. Maybe you need to authorise?
