    @siddardha

    Hello I am making a bbpress forum site. How can I make my forums and categories as child pages or sub pages.

    Thank you.

    just use shortcodes

    in particular

    [bbp-single-forum id=$forum_id]

    Thanks for the info robin.
    I have a small doubt, pls clarify.
    So I will create a new page and paste the required short code and select the parent page, right? That’s all?
    Thank you once more.

    And about the forum, where do I find the page id? Is it the page name or some number. Sorry I am a beginner. And thanks once again.

    Page id – go to

    Dasboard>forums>all forums

    Hover over the edit button of the forum, but do not click.

    you will see in the bottom left the url of that forum with forum=xxx that is the number

    yes, i have done that, but with no result.

    ok, first i created a new page and put the short code [bbp-single-forum id=105] as per my forum id and then changed the required parent page and published. thats it right?

    Maybe if you want it to appear in the menu.

    I am struggling to understand your exact issues, if you need further help, can you post a link to your website.

    simply said, i want the sub forums to be as sub pages in my menu

    and as for my website it doesn’t have any content right now worth the situation

    ok fro for each menu item

    1. create a wordpress page
    2. put the shortcode for that subforum in it
    3. publish
    4. add to menu or sub menu

    Is it possible to leave a Link Menu empty – the URL I mean?
