In reply to: Installing & Activating A bbpress Theme
Robin, that’s very kind of you and thank you for the thoughtful reply, it’s appreciated. I’m basically familiar with tweaking the css for styling, so that bit will be fine once I get the new theme installed. What I’m struggling with is getting the newly downloaded bbpress theme (the main theme will stay as is, this theme is solely for the forums and will work within the main theme) to function.
This is the theme I’m trying to install and activate:
At some point they had a link to an installation guide but does that link work now? 🙂
Add to the above the fact that I’ve just gone to 4 threads where people like myself didn’t even receive a single answer to the same question?
I would say you’re spot on Bobby. 2 years down the line from this thread and I’m beggared if I can find clear, concise documentation on how to install and activate a simple bbpress theme. I just don’t get the point of spending all this time and effort to create forum software and then refuse to properly help people to use it. Like you said, more people will just give up than actually install and use at this rate.
I can honestly say it was easier to integrate phpbb3 with wordpress using a complex modification than it is to properly set up a bbpress forum, which is meant to be seamless.
Might be time to look for another solution if this is the future. Not wishing to be snappy and I know this is free software, of which I’m sure we’re all appreciative, but this has to be one of the most frustrating installs I’ve ever encountered.
