Forum Slugs & Using Page Templates
I’m still playing around with bbpress/buddypress on my test site wpthemetrial.com. I know I’m doing something fundamentally wrong, so can I please get help.
I originally copied all the bbp-twentyten files into my active theme and manually edited the files like archive-forum.php, archive-topic.php to get these pages how I wanted them to look.
However, how do I setup my forum homepage to use the page-front-topics.php template? When I create a WP Page at wpthemetrial.com/forum the bbpress automatic page using the archive-forum.php file always overrides it. It says “Archive Slugs
Include custom root slugs to prefix your forums and topics with. These can be partnered with WordPress pages to allow more flexibility.”
but I can’t get it to work.
For now I’ve inserted ‘forumbb’ http://wpthemetrial.com/forumbb/ and ‘topicsbb’ http://wpthemetrial.com/topicsbb/ as my archive slugs, but I’d really like to use my WP custom pages, http://wpthemetrial.com/forum/ and ttp://wpthemetrial.com/topics/ as they are easier to update and manage.
