How to add a simple login/regsiter link within bbPress (non sidebar)

    Here is the site I’m working on: http://testtrack.tv/forums

    It’s WordPress site using a custom child theme of the Thematic wordpress theme/framework.

    As you can see, I have used the WordPress functions.php to filter away the sidebar to get a full width layout. Other than that, I have just the styles.css of my theme to restyle the forums slightly.

    However, as far as I can tell bbPress doesn’t have a built in login/register link anywhere on the forums – why on earth not? Did I miss something?

    Therefore, can anyone tell me how I add a simple login/register link within bbPress? As I’m not using the sidebar, I can’t add a widget there.

    Any help hugely appreciated.

    Hi John, sorry not getting your point. I’m using the default install. I’ve added the plugin and the forum is showing and functional but there is no login/register links anywhere – are you saying there is no login/register link within the default install/theme?

    Correct. There can’t be any hard coded links anywhere, because all themes are different and will want them in different locations with different URLs. You can use the Login Widget that’s included to get you some of the way there, but even with widgets/shortcodes/templates it won’t satisfy everyone.

    The link above is dead — is there a way to override the default forums link to use the login/register link?
