How do I change font color in closed forum topics

    @locutus1

    Posts in my forum that are open are fine but when they are closed they become very hard to read. Whether the post is a sticky or not doesn’t matter. In every case when a post is closed, the text is grey and very hard to read. I would like to change the font color for the topic title, author and body of all closed posts. Is this possible? Thanks. Currently, I’m using a plugin that gives many forum options called bbp style pack. If I disable that plugin it doesn’t help. The text is still grey. I would be willing to use another plugin instead of bbp style pack if that would help.

    See examples of closed and open posts in my forum at

    FPS

    Thanks

    that link shows no topics.

    But if you can give me a link with an example, then I can help

    The above link goes to a page with 2 closed and 1 open topic. You can even see “This forum contains 3 topics”. I logged out as admin and now I can’t see them. So you need to be logged in to see them. I’m new to WordPress so I don’t know why it’s like that.

    I did more experimenting and you have to be logged in to see the forum topics. You can see the rest of the site without being logged in but you have to be logged in to see the forum topics.

    I think you have your forums set as private

    In dashboard>forums>all forums>edit forum you can change a forum to be public.

    If this is not the case come back.

    dashboard>forums>all forums lists all the forums. I went into several main forums (type ‘category’) and sub-forums. The status for all of them is “open” and visibility is “public”.

    I installed bbp toolkit which has a checkbox “Do not grey out closed topics”. That’s exactly what I want. The text font color is different now so it’s very readable but it changes the way sub-forums are listed in a main forum. bbP Style Pack makes the list vertical like this:

    Main forum 1
    Sub forum 1
    Sub forum 2
    Sub forum 3
    Main forum 2
    Sub forum 1
    Sub forum 2
    Sub forum 3

    Enabling the toolkit changes it so it’s like this:

    Main forum 1
    sub forum 1 sub forum 2 sub forum 3
    Main forum 2
    sub forum 1 sub forum 2 sub forum 3

    So the style pack and toolkit are incompatible. Either I have the forums listed vertically but closed topics are hard to read or I can read closed topics but the forums are listed horizontally. I looked through everything in the toolkit. I don’t see a way to stop it from changing the forum list to horizontal.

    it’s just that we are both writing amendments to the same code.

    if you go to

    dashboard>tools>bbp toolkit>information you will see a line saying

    Change the separator between the subforums on the forum index page to

    change that to newline and you should be good to go

    That looks good now. Thanks. Do you have any idea why my forums are only visible to people who are logged in even though they’re set to public?

    no, what other plugins are you running?

    @locutus1

    I just deactivated ALL my plugins except bbpress. bbpress is the only active plugin. I then restarted my browser, loaded the site and entered a forum with 3 topics (the FPS forum that my first post above links to). I logged out from my site as admin. The three topics disappeared. I can still see the forums but I can’t see any topics in any forum.

    ok, not sure if I can help further, something funny with your site.

    The final thing I’d suggest is that you change to a default theme

    If a public forum, with a default theme and just bbpress running doesn’t show topics, then there is something wrong with your site or database.
