  • Your path setting may be blank or something.

    have a look in your config.php and check:




    I have set my config.php

    $bb->domain = ‘’;

    $bb->path = ‘/bbpress/’;

    I thought this is right setting.

    I found out that most people’s bbpress has this code in index.php

    <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”; type=”text/css” />

    however my index.php shows

    <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”style.css” type=”text/css” />

    in the bbpress root there is no css file, so I think that’s why it didn;t work.

    Can anyone told me how to fix it?

    Right now I just dump my css file in the root so index can reads it.

    You have to do it differently. To apply a css file, make a new folder in /bbpress/ called my-templates, open it, make a new folder for your “theme”, and put in your css file called style.css. Now go to the Admin Panel > Presentation and pick your theme.

    Note that you can change the HTML output of files as well. If you do not have a file for a particular page (such as forum.php) bbpress will look for the default file (located in /bbpress/bb-templates/kakumei) and use that instead. If you wish to use a modified file, copy the default into your theme’s folder and change it there.

    Actually I know I have to make my-templates folder and I do have it.

    But before I put css file in the root, the forum don’t even read the default theme.

    I do try to change it in admin panel, but somwhow it just don’t work.

    Have you taken a look at this thread? As well, doesn’t show up for me at all. Is that the correct address? As for the link just having “style.css” in the address, it is because it is referenced off the theme folder and not the root directory. I can’t access your site, so what is your theme as well? The default one?


    I was try to fix the fourm this afternoon, so if you can’t access maybe is because I was worrking on it XD.

    The Fourm address is right

    Your site shows up fine for me in Firefox, IE, Safari, Opera and Flock. Is is still a problem on your end?


    Thx Trent so patience to help me out.

    Actually, yes this is still problem. I didn’t fix it and i just copy the css file from and put it in the “; directory.

    When you visit my site, look at the source code and the css link shows

    <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”style.css” type=”text/css” />

    I looks others fourm’s source code they have address like in the href.

    So I am wonder, is it my config.php didn’t set it right or some other thing I have to do.

    I do put the patch-to-URL.php in my-plugins folder

    You seem to have renamed the kakumei directory which would be a problem. It should be named kakumei and nothing else I think.

    I do try to change it to kakumei, but it still not working.

    I don’t think this is the problem.

    I think it must something wrong with the setting,
