I’m using the Twenty Seventeen theme, by the way.
Mine still show underline on mouse hover. But then I sent my CSS styling to do that anyway as my theme by default didn’t.
Different themes use different styling for different reasons.
If I recall correctly, Twenty Seventeen does not use the
text-decoration attribute, but rather uses some kind of text-shadow or bottom-border. It’s a weird anomaly with how that theme decided to do things.
It’s nearly impossible for bbPress to work perfectly with all themes, but we do try to keep the default styling working well with the themes that come bundled with WordPress.
This should be solvable with a bit of custom CSS. I’ll create a Trac ticket and see if we can bring this back for you with this theme specifically.
This should be fixed in 2.6.1. Let me know!
Thanks for responding so quickly.
I installed 2.6.1. and now embedded links in posts are underlined again, which is great, and that was the most problematic thing for my forums.
However, the names of forums and topic names themselves aren’t underlined (they used to be pre-2.6.0). I hate to be “that guy” but is there any chance this can be fixed too? This also applies to the links to the most recent post, names of posters, etc.
Is there any reason you can’t just use additional CSS to get things like links looking and behaving as you prefer? Just a thought … 🙂 I am only a user … 🙂

Not really, but I’m just using a standard WP theme and it was working in 2.5, so 2.6 shouldn’t really have changed how it looks.
@stevehammatt presume this is fixed in 2.6.1
Not fixed fully in 2.6.1 as per my earlier reply – forum names, user names etc don’t appear underlined as links. 2.6.1 just fixed embedded links in posts.
