Help! “newbie” bbpress problems

  • kidbooo


    Hello everyone,,
    I admit I am a “newbie” and am having a bundle of problems. I am in the process of building a website which is still offline, and am very stuck. I am using ocean wp and I don’t know how to find out the version, but everything is new in the last 2 weeks.. sorry I really am a newbie…
    I am making “” and wanted to make a small forum page alongside of information pages, I had to do a whole pile of deleting and rebuilding on the forum site, but now I have the basic structure!! So that is a plus, but am stuck on the login–register-lost password widget. The first time I made it, it put the menu all over the place and the login was on every page. Iwas using bbpress tweaks, so uninstalled the bbpress tweaks, and ended up re-installing. I watched a whole pile of youtube on how to do it, and went back at it. I did all the “making the page” and putting the permalinks in the widget slot in the bbpress side bar. This time I had logins on every page BUT THE FORUM PAGE!!! This is the 3rd time I have deleted everything and started over.. I am about to forget the whole thing or use a different forum widget. I am STUCK. Any ideas??
    The other thing is the text is sooo thin and tiny on the forum page it is hard to see. I have heard something about css, but have no clue about what that is or how to use it..
    Would really appreciate any ideas..

    ok, for the participants trashing topics, install

    bbp style pack

    once activated go to

    dashboard>settings>bbp style pack>Topic/Reply Display items 17,18,& 19

    On the widgets, install
    the ‘widget logic plugin’, and on pages you want the widget, use
