Forum styling broken on category view

    Hi. Please can you see what my forum index looks like normally.
    http://robssatellitetv.com/forums/

    But then click on “General Forums” in the grey forum header area, you go to a forum category index.

    Now it looks awful and there are no forum descriptions.

    Has anybody got an idea why? It is quite confusing and to a viewer, those sub forums look like topics! Confusing for some website visitors!

    Thank you.

    I haven’t taken a detailed look at your problem but you could try adding this to you functions file

    
    //This function adds descriptions to the sub forums
    function custom_list_forums( $args = '' ) {
    
    	// Define used variables
    	$output = $sub_forums = $topic_count = $reply_count = $counts = '';
    	$i = 0;
    	$count = array();
    
    	// Parse arguments against default values
    	$r = bbp_parse_args( $args, array(
    		'before'            => '<ul class="bbp-forums-list">',
    		'after'             => '</ul>',
    		'link_before'       => '<li class="bbp-forum">',
    		'link_after'        => '</li>',
    		'count_before'      => ' (',
    		'count_after'       => ')',
    		'count_sep'         => ', ',
    		'separator'         => ', ',
    		'forum_id'          => '',
    		'show_topic_count'  => true,
    		'show_reply_count'  => true,
    	), 'list_forums' );
    
    	// Loop through forums and create a list
    	$sub_forums = bbp_forum_get_subforums( $r['forum_id'] );
    	if ( !empty( $sub_forums ) ) {
    
    		// Total count (for separator)
    		$total_subs = count( $sub_forums );
    		foreach ( $sub_forums as $sub_forum ) {
    			$i++; // Separator count
    
    			// Get forum details
    			$count     = array();
    			$show_sep  = $total_subs > $i ? $r['separator'] : '';
    			$permalink = bbp_get_forum_permalink( $sub_forum->ID );
    			$title     = bbp_get_forum_title( $sub_forum->ID );
    			$content = bbp_get_forum_content($sub_forum->ID) ;
    
    			// Show topic count
    			if ( !empty( $r['show_topic_count'] ) && !bbp_is_forum_category( $sub_forum->ID ) ) {
    				$count['topic'] = bbp_get_forum_topic_count( $sub_forum->ID );
    			}
    
    			// Show reply count
    			if ( !empty( $r['show_reply_count'] ) && !bbp_is_forum_category( $sub_forum->ID ) ) {
    				$count['reply'] = bbp_get_forum_reply_count( $sub_forum->ID );
    			}
    
    			// Counts to show
    			if ( !empty( $count ) ) {
    				$counts = $r['count_before'] . implode( $r['count_sep'], $count ) . $r['count_after'];
    			}
    
    			// Build this sub forums link
    			$output .= $r['before'].$r['link_before'] . '<a href="' . esc_url( $permalink ) . '" class="bbp-forum-link">' . $title . $counts . '</a>' . $show_sep . $r['link_after'].'<div class="bbp-forum-content">'.$content.'</div>'.$r['after'];
    		}
    
    		// Output the list
    		return $output ;
    	}
    }
    
    add_filter('bbp_list_forums', 'custom_list_forums' );

    Can you just eliminate theem or plugin issues, this should show descriptions (content) on the category pages.

    Plugins

    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    Themes

    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, switch to a default theme such as twentytwelve, and see if this fixes.
