bbpress configuration problem

  • Hi there,

    I would like to have a simple support forum like this in this site here:

    but when I install my site the forum plugin isn’t compatible with my used theme.

    The forum isn’t displayed well and also I can’t set it up in pages (i tried short codes but they don’t work


    So two question:

    1. Is there a PDF documentation on how to set up a forum like this:

    2. Do I other plugins to let my “support forum” be like this one:

    or just bbpress?

    Thank you and a good night from auckland! (saturday mornign 4:40am)

    Hello! bbPress comes with a bunch of built in support for a majority of standard WordPress themes. If bbPress isn’t working with your theme, it’s up to your theme author to decide if bbPress is something they want to support.

    You shouldn’t need to do much more to get bbPress to look and work like the forums you linked to, once you get your theme sorted.

    Hi again,

    the theme author is a developer from, so i don’t think i can ask them to code the theme individually form me so that my forum fits in…

    Is there a documentation on how to set up the style sheet in a way that i can set up the forum that i posted above in my theme? Because right now my them doesn’t get supported for bbpress…

    Thank you John!



    @Daxx: Just to clarify, you have installed into a WordPress installation, right?
