How to give nested categories an exploded view as default?

  • JohnnyScience


    Is there a way for me to enable the categories and nested categories to have an exploded view as default on the main forums page?

    This way they don’t have to click an additional time to see all of the forums forums

    not knowing how your site is set up, and seeing an example – hard to understand quite what you are seeing and want to see.

    but try

    bbp style pack

    once activated go to

    dashboard>settings>bbp style pack>forum templates



    So I’ve tried messing around in that plugin, but it never seems to take affect on my site.

    Is there something I’m not doing correctly?

    Here’s screenshot of the template you can see I have enabled in the dashboard, but as you can see the forum is still the basic generic forum look and design.

    I’ve also tried to change/update things within the Forum Display tab, but again, nothing seems to actually take effect on the website.

    forum templates

    Not sure why that image isn’t working, I used the img link button at the top of this post. I wish there was an easier way to upload images on this forum instead of having to use imgur

    your theme or another plugin might be affecting my template loading

    if you want to check this:


    As a test switch to a default theme such as twentytwenty, and see if this fixes.


    If that doesn’t work, also deactivate all plugins apart from bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    If you cannot do this to your site (say because it is live) then use the ‘troubleshooting’ features of this plugin to let you test without affecting other users

    Then come back
