bbp style pack
once activated go to
dashboard>settings>bbp style pack>Forum Display enable item 6 forum description.
dashboard>forums>edit forum in each forum you can put in the content part whatever you want to appear. in your case the same description for each forum, but you can have a different.
Finally to get this on the main forums list, create a page called ‘forums’, and put your description at the top of this. Then add the shortcode
[bbp-forum-index] to this. bbpress will then use this as the main forums page.
Oh interesting, I do have that pack but I didn’t realize it could do quite that much. I will give it a try. Thank you!
Unless I am doing something wrong, item 6 forum description just shows up under the forum name. I am looking to put announcements/notices above the listing of forums. There is an old plugin called bbpress-notices that does something similar. Preferably, I would like these to be Super Sticky posts instead of just notices but could work with that.

sorry, I’m confused – so exactly where? – can you mock up please

now you’ve confused me – if you make them super sticky posts, then they will appear as the top post in each forum – if that satisfies, then you don’t need anything further.
I put together a mockup of what I am trying to do. I want the main page to be a list of forums, but above that should be any posts that are Super Sticky to be used as site-wide announcements without having to go into a forum to see them.
you would need to redesign the templates to do this.
Involves php and ftp knowledge and beyond free help.
OK…that’s kind of what I needed to know. I am a programmer (though haven’t done PHP). I definitely know FTP. I needed to determine if it could be done with existing tools before I dove into the code.
look in the template files
