Forum landing page link in site menu – how?
I had to manually add a link in the site menu for the main forum page/section.
The individual sub-forums generated menu items – I don’t want those in the main site menu.
That seems incorrect – no menu item for the forum section?
– WP 4.1/bbPress 2.5.4
– MultiSite install
– MultiSite sub-site is dedicated to bbPress
– I have used the generic twenty fourteen, and other themes.
the solution to this is built in WordPress not not in bbpress. First make sure you have an actual page called forums then use short code to mate it your main forums index page. Once that is confirmed check your permalinks and make sure they are not on default. ( I usually use post name). Now your forums page should be showing as a page on your site. Then go to custom menu Dashboard>appearance>menus once there you can create many different menus and label where they will show up, or even call them through the widget area. But for your particular problem find the one called Main(top primary menu) then just add the pages you want to show up on that menu and delete the ones you don’t want to show up. (Be sure to uncheck automatically add top level pages).
Thank you very much for a thorough and clear explanation! I would have never, ever, figured this out.
Wait – what is the shortcode? I know how to use them – but I don’t know them.
Oh, I have reinstalled bbPress to try again. Now my set-up is different. I will start a new thread.
Somehow the menu is in order this time. And…
I found what you were explaining to me, and the shortcode (what I was searching for):
Thanks again, I knew exactly what to look for this time.
