“Forums” – Breadcrums

    In my breadcrumbs the root is Forums.

    Technically this is fine because it does show a Forums page. But I also have my primary support forums page. Two examples:

    The link as clicked on the Forums breadcrumb:

    https://www.publictalksoftware.co.uk/forums/

    The link as clicked on my website menu:

    Support Forums

    They are both the same it seems. So can’t we get the “Forums” breadcrumb to actually go to my URL instead?

    This is not a critical issue.

    Is this possible?

    I don’t really understand why you need 2 separate pages for your forums.

    If you create a page that matches the slug for your forum root, it will use that page instead, as well as the title.

    Then, you can use bbPress shortcodes to fill in the content.

    This is what we do here on bbPress.org, and it works pretty well.

    Thanks. But I am not sure what you are suggesting I do?

    When I started out setting up bbPress I understood I had to create a page to list the forums. So I created a page (support-forums) and inserted this shortcode:

    [bbp-forum-index]

    Are you telling me I don’t actually need this page on my website or need to use this shortcode? #confused

    I gothca! I had to go to the Forum Settings and change the root slug to match my page.

    Sorted!!

    Thank you.

    Awesome indeed. I did not put two and two together. But then I noticed what it said on the screen:

    Customise your Forums root. Partner with a WordPress Page and use Shortcodes for more flexibility.

    Doh!

    Sometimes the docs could be more clear. It’s hard to find a good balance between educating quickly and being a full-on tutorial. Glad it’s working now though!
