Can anyone explain how to set out my forum main page like yours here? http://bbpress.org/forums
you know with latest topics being the main content and forums on the sidebar?
Also it does not display very well on my site. http://cornwallautismsupport.com/forums/
It would take a long time to go through what you would need to do – Basically it is all to do with styling and functions.
The basics are covered in the documentation in the codex https://codex.bbpress.org/ and some of the step by step stuff and layout will help you.
If you want someone to do it for you, go to
where someone will do anything from a minor change through to a full time job !
Thanks although i did just find the setting in settings to make it show latest topics instead of forum list, so thats good.
I got the widget in sidebar to show forum list so that’s good.
There are just a few things i want to do now and that is:
Show a bar at the top of forum page to display create topic subscribe and favorite similar to here.
Also show the number of topics in a forum on the forum list in sidebar.
REPEAT : It would take a long time to go through what you would need to do – Basically it is all to do with styling and functions.
The problem is that in answering this question I’d need to explain firefox and firebug, css, php bbpress structure and lots more.
But to get you started – THIS IS NOT THE SOLUTION – but a couple of lines that will see you get further forward. you’ll need to look at “inline” as well to get the is horizontal.
You could do a bar several ways, but the easiest is create a copy of your page template for bbpress to use
see https://codex.bbpress.org/step-by-step-guide-to-setting-up-a-bbpress-forum/ section 8
and then play with the following
in css add
background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #2020ff;
border-bottom: 1px solid #BBBBBB;
and in you bbpress page template put under the header
<ul id=”nav-user” class=”menu”>
