3 topics I can't find the answers to

  • I really hate to create a new thread but I promise all of you I’ve spent hours perusing this forum and hounding google to find answers but I’m not having the best of luck.

    Here are three areas I need help with:

    1. How to add a logo within the bbpress site? I can use it to replace bbpress or put it on the left side of the URL for the site.

    2. How do i create a link back to the wordpress blog. I’ve already created a link from wordpress to bbpress. (Yes both sites are minimally integrated: sharing the database and this seems to be working)

    3. How do i get it so when someone posts in WordPress there is a forum discussion item already created? Did I creatively imagine this or is this a function that can occur. Mine don’t seem to do that.

    4. Is there a way to change the URL suffix/Permalink of the forum to read forum rather than bbpress or do I need to do some transferring of files in file manager?

    Much much appreciated,

    Lynn (blog) (forum)

  • 4. log into your bbPress dashboard. Click on options. Look for bbPress address (URL) and change the address. Click save page. You WILL get an error. Leave the page open. Sign into your FTP and rename the folder to forum. Go back to the page and click refresh. If you did it right it will ask you to login again.

    Your integration settings need to be updated.

    Thanks for your suggestion. However I did everything like you said and now I can’t log back into admin of bbpress. It appears that that process didn’t work! Now I’ve created a problem. I’ll start looking through the forums for an answer to this. Ugh.

    Now I’m in a pickle. I cannot visibly see an admin screen for bbpress and therefore I can’t login to try to make changes. I did add this path in bb-config

    $bb->uri = ‘’;

    (after key codes) and it’s done nothing. My folder in file manager has been changed from bbpress to forum. I tried to change it back but because I can’t get into bbpress admin I can’t change the admin link. Right now I’d be happy to go back to bbpress and not forum and believe you me when I say I’ll become backup queen.

    Can anyone please help?!!

    re: “pickle”

    suggest removing the bb-config change you made until you get these other things sorted out :)


    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ll work on # 3. It seems as though all things are restored with the forum link once I removed your “pickle” reference. HUGE CHEERS FOR THAT.

    Any insight into # 1 or # 2 for me?

    Seems you use Kakumei?

    Open header.php (theme)

    Found <div id="header" role="banner">

    Add something like after the code above <a class="bloglink" href="">« My blog homepage</a>

    Found theme style.css and open

    Add something like this

    a.bloglink {
    font-size: 13px;

    hpguru pretty much nailed it.

    Beyond that, you may wish to research basic wordpress site editing; it will help you loads, & there are many wonderful resources for this on the web.

    Hello all,

    Well it appears as though the link between the blog and the forum aren’t working as well as I’d thought. They are both linked to each other (via my manual links) but since I changed the folder from bb-admin to forum now all posts in the forum return me back to the blog page with a “page not found”error. What am I missing? Any ideas?

    You’ll see what I mean if you enter then click on forum discussion links, then try to click on one of the topics. THe error will occur. I really appreciate your help! Lynn

    Excuse me. By changing the permalinks in bbadmin from option # 2 to # 3 I’m good to go. Unless there’s something I’m missing?! Cheers, Lynn
