Changing How Forums are Listed
Hi everyone. I’m in the process of migrating my website from phpBB to bbPress. In modifying the template, I feel like I’m pretty limited to what I can change without getting into modifying core files.
Basically, this is what my phpBB forum looks like –
And this is how my bbPress looks like right now –
I want to retain the look of the former, but in the archive-forum.php template file, the only code that is being called in that area is “bbp_get_template_part( ‘content’, ‘archive-forum’ );”
It looks like bbp_get_template_part() is calling the entire thing, whereas I’m used to phpBB giving me individual tags – I guess their equivalent to what you’d call shortcodes? – for the category name, the forum name, number of posts etc to place them precisely where I want them in the template.
So what am I missing? What file can I modify, or what functions could I call, that would allow me that same level of control?
Hopefully this is coherent. I’m pretty new to using bbPress – and BuddyPress, and WordPress… – so I feel a bit mentally fatigued from learning these systems, lol. Any help would most certainly be appreciated. Let me know if anything needs clarification, and thanks in advance to anyone who reads this wall of text. Cheers.
