    It bugs me as well.

    Two solutions I have documented

    Layout and functionality – Examples you can use

    Layout and functionality – Examples you can use

    You can also copy the core file into your functions file, hack it and rename it. There are several places it needs renaming, and if you would like to post your working solution, I’ll happily make a functions file version, as long as I can use it publicly

    I wanted to do that too.. but unfortunately I couldn’t find a better answer so I had to edit the widgets file under includes/common/widgets.php ( my forum ) .

    the way bbPress outputs the login page bugs me, a lot. What I am trying to do is add a login box to my layout, when I did – I found it added a list and a horrible fieldset around the whole thing. This doesn’t work with my design at all.

    are you using the shortcode [bbp-login] ??

    you should use that shortcode if not.

    more shortcodes supplied with bbPress that you can use.

    https://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/

    I found there is no template readily available to just change. Really?

    yes there is its called form-user-login.php

    So, it seems all I can do is hack away at the core code, which will all be reverted once a new version comes around.

    dont do that

    If you want to alter the widget, then you can rename it and put it as an additional widget in your functions file.

    You will need to rename it in several places.

    If you want to work on the core version and get it working, then if you want to post a revised core version (and any associated css) here, then I’ll quite happily work out the rename areas so you can then post it in your functions file – as long as your version is freely available for others (and me) to use.

    post a link to your site

    a little CSS could fix up the input box awkwardness and also help put labels on top.

    I fixed the look of it on desktop but it looks off on mobile. Needs spacing.

    you can see it comes back to normal on very small sizes close to 200 maybe settings a max width for the login form would do the job.

    try something close to this , edit if you want.

    .widget.bbp_widget_login .bbp-login-form {
    	max-width: 270px;
    }

    Where do I place the code?

    @supremor

    I added it to the style.css file. But on here it still looks the same:

    carfanaticsforum.com/login

    For mobile.

    do this instead since you want it for all of the bbPress login forms.

    .bbp-login-form {
    	max-width: 270px;
    }

    and you could put the CSS in many places

    a custom css plugin
    jetpacks css module
    your child themes stylesheet
    the bbpress.css stylesheet that should be copied to your child theme in a bbpress folder

    I have another question. I’m trying to add the log in and log out code into functions but I get the following error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘Logout’ (T_STRING) in /home/carfan6/public_html/wp-content/themes/sparkle-child/functions.php on line 33

    Another thing you might try is one of the many login widgets in the WordPress plugin repository. It doesn’t have to be specific to bbPress to work. For example, here’s a tabbed login widget that looks pretty nice.

    Try the following

    //adds login/logout to menu
    //filter to add login/logout to menu
    add_filter( 'wp_nav_menu_items', 'my_nav_menu_login_link' );
    function my_nav_menu_login_link($menu) {
        //uncomment the next line if you only want login on bbpress pages
        //if(is_bbpress()) {
        if (is_user_logged_in()) {
            //set the $url on the next line to the page you want users to go back to when they logout
            $url = 'http://www.mysite.com/forums' ;
            $url2=wp_logout_url($url) ;
            $loginlink = '<li><a title="Logout" href="'.$url2.'">Logout</a></li>';
            }
        else {
            $current_user = wp_get_current_user();
            $user=$current_user->user_login ;
            //set $page on the next line = the permalink for your login page
            $page='login' ;
            $loginlink = '<li><a href="/'.$page.'/">Login</a></li>';
                    }
        //uncomment out the next lines if you only want login on bbpress pages
        //      }
        //  else {
        //  $loginlink="" ;
        //      }
            $menu = $menu . $loginlink;
            return $menu;
    }
