    One of the problems I’ve encountered in trying to use the TinyMCE editor in bbPress is styling the text inside the editor itself. The default fonts are serif, but suppose you want sans?

    Attempting to override the font-family in the usual way — by modifying your theme’s CSS file — fails because the editor window of TinyMCE is in it’s own tiny little world as far as CSS is concerned.

    In order to get TinyMCE to use your own stylesheet, you have to pass it as an argument when the editor is called. Here’s how to do it in bbPress.

    function bbp_enable_visual_editor( $args = array() ) {
        $args['tinymce'] = array( 
                'content_css' => '/wp-content/themes/mytheme/css/tinymce-editor.css',
        return $args;
    add_filter( 'bbp_after_get_the_content_parse_args', 'bbp_enable_visual_editor' );

    In the example above, “tinymce-editor.css” is the CSS file you want the editor to use. It is located in a folder entitled “CSS”, which is located in your theme folder “mytheme”. The code above can be copied and pasted into your functions.php file.

    Other options for the editor can be found here. Notice that the value for “tinymce” can be an array. That’s what we’re doing above.

    Additional arguments to pass in the array for the TinyMCE editor can be found here.

    I hope this helps someone. The documentation for styling the editor text could be improved. I banged my head on this problem for years until I stumbled on the solution elsewhere.

    bbpress does not have fixed separators – it has default ones.

    you can change simply by putting this in your child theme functions file or using code snippets plugin

    function custom_bbp_sub_forum_list() {
      $args['separator'] = 'whatever you want' ;
      return $args;
     add_filter('bbp_after_list_forums_parse_args', 'custom_bbp_sub_forum_list' );

    You also seem to be confused by templates. Theme and plugin templates are exactly that and designed to be changed if wanted. With bbpress you simply follow

    Is there any good way to convert a bbPress database to static/archived html files? I was going to try to make the WP2Static work for this, but if there’s a bbPress-specific plugin or something that already exists for this, I’d much rather use that. I looked around of course and couldn’t find anything.

    In reply to: Shortcodes not working

    Robin W

    so have you installed bbpress ?? installing buddypress doesn’t get you bbpress, you have to install it as well


    I created a site using buddypress. The shortcodes like [bbp-login], [bbp-register], [bbp-lost-pass] not working. It just shows the shortcode. I tested it with the theme Twenty Seventeen and NO other plugin installed. WordPress 5.1.1, PHP 7.3 (tested also with 5.6 and 7.2), and Buddypress 4.2.0.
    You can see it here:
    Thanks for your help.


    Topics and Replier are not linked after importing the bbpress forum data from one WP site to another already live WP site using wordpress default importer. (tools -> import).

    Imported properly in backend but on frontend topics and replies are not linked.

    Forum repair option event did not worked. This makes topics and replies count zero on frontend.

    Need solution ASAP.

    Can you recommend a plug-in to create a pop-up in BBPress for a new topic instead of an inline form?

    Jackson Bird

    How can I correct the error message “Error: Topic ID is missing” in my forum site created with a bbPress plugin?


    I need a forum. Two days ago, I installed wordpress 4.9.10, ok. Then installed bbPress, ok. Then installed GD bbPress Attachments, ok. Everything went so easy.

    Today I installed 5.1.1, ok. But bbPress not working. I created a “category”, a “forum”, a “topic”, all returns “Oops! That page can’t be found.”

    1 Install wordpress: database name, username, password…
    2 admin / Plubins / Add New: (1)find bbPress, (2)install it, (3)activate
    Nothing else has beed done.

    Why 4.9.10 works, but 5.1.1 not?


    when bbPress page is loaded, screen changes to 4800 pixels width regardless of screen width (happens also on mobile!)

    See the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of this page?: http://דירוג-אשראי

    This only happes on bbPress pages, not on Posts or other site pages: http://דירוג-אשראי


    Hi, i met this issue, and for future ppl who would face the same problem, here is a simple fix that worked for me :

    it’s an issue with 404 being catched and not letting bbpress show the profile page, evenif it exists. You can add this in the theme function file :

    function bbp_fix_users_404_headers() {
        if ( ! function_exists( 'bbpress' ) ) return;       
        $bbp = bbpress();
        if ( !empty( $bbp->displayed_user ) && is_404() ) {
            global $wp_query;
            $wp_query->is_404 = false;
            status_header( 200 );
    add_action( 'wp', 'bbp_fix_users_404_headers' );

    @lucio – I had the same issue, I wanted my topic list to appear above my subforums, here is the easy fix.

    go to> wp-content>plugins>bbpress>templates>default>bbpress

    Find content-single-forum.php

    select lines 28-32:

    		<?php if ( bbp_has_forums() ) : ?>
    			<?php bbp_get_template_part( 'loop', 'forums' ); ?>
    		<?php endif; ?>

    Find these lines:

    		<?php if ( bbp_has_forums() ) : ?>
    			<?php bbp_get_template_part( 'loop', 'forums' ); ?>
    		<?php endif; ?>

    Paste the 3 lines selected above UNDERNEATH those lines (Line #50)

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

    item 3



    I’m using Responsive theme by CyberChimps. Site orientation is RTL.

    Forum pages load on some mobiles (i.e. Galaxy) extremely wide, something like 10 times the size of the actual screen.

    The issue also appears when I use 12 on my Tabletop chrome.

    This happens only on bbPress pages. Rest of site loads fine (correct width).

    here is a link to an example page (Sprry, Site is in hebrew): http://xn—

    Another site that I have which is NOT RTL loads bbPress pages w/o any error(correct width).

    Any help is appreciated.



    WordPress 5.1.1 running Twenty Seventeen theme.
    BuddyPress Version 4.2.0 – The Main Club – Just the F1 Club – Just the Social Club

    Hi all. I’m getting adventurous here!
    I have three WP sites running on a domain and two sub-domains. Instead of running three separate bbPress installations, I want to use an installation with Membership 2 running on it for the main site but have two groups set up, one for F1 and one for Social Club.

    I want however, to display the widget in the side-bar with Groups and Members on all three sites running from the main site? Possible?

    Ps. I had a multisite installation before but scrapped it as it was a disaster! Don’t want to go back there if I can help it…
    Thanks in advance


    hi i had created a forum with the bbPress plugin on my block, but then i still want something displaying the latest topic in forum on my front page. I have to look for some plugins to do the job but it is really difficult to find a good one.
    it will be a nice thing to me if you can really help thanks!


    Log into your WordPress back-end.
    Go to Tools > Forums > Reset Forums.
    Check the “Are you sure you want to do this?” checkbox.
    Optional: You may also want to check Delete imported users? …
    Click Reset bbPress.

    you asked

    Can you give me a CSS document that handles everything on bbPress so that I can decide how I want everything to look

    the link above tells you where it is and how to alter it.

    I’m not sure how that doesn’t answer the request 🙂


    Please support me.
    I have installed Social Locker plugin | BizPanda and install bbpress plugin.
    However, after installing bbpress plugin, Social Locker plugin | My BizPanda has failed to lock the content anymore so I have to remove bbpress. After uninstalling bbpress plugin, social locker works normally.
    Please show me how to fix it.

    Can you give me a CSS document that handles everything on bbPress so that I can decide how I want everything to look.
    Instead of, like now, ask for one CSS snippet after the other?
    Most fonts are too small, often not more than 10px, and since my site is for older people with impaired vision, it is important that my site is adapted to them.

    Best regards

    I have these bbPress plugins
    See image – plugins here

    But when I want to create menues, none of these plugins are available
