bbPress Mixing with Blog Post Style

  • It seems that the bbPress 2.0 plugin is using my blog posts setup for forum topics and forums list. This is an issue to me because I do not want to have post author information or the comments section to display in the forum topics.

    Here is an example:

    I am using Pagelines Platform Pro theme. I have also posted this topic on their forums (, but it seems that it is an issue between the plugin and WordPress…

    Is there a way to separate the forums from the blog post style? I obviously don’t want to turn off commenting site wide, but this is an issue.

    Despite the inflammatory remarks from their team in the topic you linked me to, I tweeted the Pagelines guys about getting access to their forums or getting things figured out together.

    Considering you are paying them for support, I think the ball is in their court. If there’s a problem with their theme and bbPress they need to put a guy on it and send me a theme to test, similar to how StudioPress and Genesis handled it for the 2.0 release.

    If bbPress is doing something that’s causing headaches, I’m happy to fix it – the difference being that bbPress’s code is immediately accessible to them, and their themes are not to me.



    I also sent them a contact form requesting access in order to help and troubleshoot.

    Thank you. I really appreciate you guys being on top of this! Please keep me updated on any fixes.

    The more I have been researching, it is pointing more to an issue with my theme. I have installed other plugins, such as Facebook comments and a post author box plugin. They are not being applied to the forum posts. That leads me to believe the theme is being applied incorrectly.

    I will have to try and get an answer from the theme developer.

    I am also having the same issue. Hoping to fix this soon.

    @ejegirl23 jjj is working with Pagelines to try and get a solution. They should be posting updates on this thread and here:

    I am not sure if anything was figured out on this, but I gave up on the Pagelines theme and created my own child theme based on the BuddyPress default theme.

    Now I have that extra control I needed to create a more fluid and mobile friendly design.

    Thanks for the help. I am going to mark this as resolved.

    Good to hear. Looks like Pagelines is dropping support for bbPress in future versions. A shame really. I have a good relationship with a few of their guys so I’m sure we’ll get things figured out eventually.
