Footer displays as text
I’ve installed bbpress on my wordpress site. On every page I have a footer supplied by the theme which displays fine, except on all my forum pages. Here it just displays as text, starting with “[vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” content_placement=”middle” etc, so all of the WPBakery markup is just showing as text. I can’t try another theme as twenty twenty doesn’t show the footer anyway!
Any idea what I can look at? According to WhatTheFile it’s just using my theme’s page.php file
is the site public and forum pages visible ?
Website is at https://pilotstogether.org, try https://pilotstogether.org/forums for a forum display
which theme are you using?
and can you look at this
Items 3 and 8
THeme is Charity FOundation from themeforest. I have looked at that but the forums are just using page.php – I don’t understand why it is displaying the VC footer as text.
so are you using a page with the [bbp-forum-index] in it ?
If not – that would be the next thing to try
yes I am. But every forum page, and only the forum pages, displays the VC footer as text.
and that page is a bakery page – ie a page where the shortcode is in a bakery item ?
hmmm….not sure what to suggest next
sort of looks like wp-bakery want you to buy an add-on for bbpress shortcodes
I think that add-on is just for to enable you to more easily add bbp shortcodes rather than any sort of compatibility. I just don’t understand why, when it’s using the same template as other pages, it breaks the footer display..
the logic is that at this point it is simply seeing what is stored in the database, rather than using wp-bakery to interpret it.
Whilst I use WP-bakery on a couple of sites, none that use bbpress.
sorry not sure I can help further
Is there some way that the theme doesn’t realise the bbp code has finished so doesn’t realise it’s into the footer? Really clutching at straws here
could be down to a failure to close a
