    ok, may be you know how to distinguish forum type via WP_Query()?
    $query = new WP_Query('post_type=category'); – not working.

    Hi,
    bbPress works with Categories and Forums for the main structure, could you maybe explain what you plan to obtain ? Because you could easily create a structure of Category>Category>Forums.
    I did not check how easy it is to have implement it, but if you really want this, check how to add a WordPress custom type, that will be your starting point.

    Hi,
    I want forum looking like phpbb, example below. Where I marked the categories and forums must look like.
    I trying to detect categories with this code:

    <?php $q_meta_forums1 = array( 'meta_key' => '_bbp_forum_type', 'meta_value' => 'category'); ?>
    <?php $categories_q = new WP_Query( $q_meta_forums1 ); ?>

    But $categories_q returns nothing. It’s the main problem for now.
    So, then I want in loop-forums.php with code above build categories structure and in ‘while’ cycle make another one which will be show sub-forums of categories.
    Example
