    Hello. WP version 5.0 BB Press Version 2.5.14

    I have a quick question. I have searched and found no answer thus far. It involves creating categories and forums under them categories and then topics showing up in categories that they don’t belong in.


    Category Example 1:
    Forum Example 1
    Forum Example 3

    Category Example 2:
    Forum Example 2:

    Now say I post a topic in Forum Example 2 under the category Example 2. When I go to read any topics in category example 1 forums 1 or 3, I see every single post made in category 2. Now that is kind of counter productive is it not? I do not see the need to create categories and forums if all posts are going to show up no matter where I look anyhow.

    I have never met a forum system that does this. I helped develop a piece of software based on a forum with close to a million downloads before we called it quits so I am a shade on the forum familiar side but this boggles my mind. I am rather new to WordPress and BBPress so I am more than sure it is my missing a setting or something?

    I appreciate all the hard work that has gone into this. I am having a good time with it thus far. My sincerest apologies if this has been covered and beat to death already.

    I think I figured it out. Is it pinned posts that do that and not all posts?

    yes with bbpress you can make a post sticky or super sticky – stick or stick to front

    sticky puts it at the top of its forum, super sticky put it at the top of all forums



    AH ok. I bet I made them super sticky then. Thanks. Ill go back and check. I just couldn’t see the reason to be able to see posts from other categories in other categories. I completely understand super stickies though.

    Thanks. I appreciate it.
