Layout break / embedding forum in page – slug issue?

  • lucasjbyoung


    Hey guys

    This is probably due to my theme, but the default install of the forum at the url /forums displays the forum on a page with the title “Archives” and the layout is broken, ugly, full width etc.

    The Ugly Layout

    Following another suggestion on this forum, I created a forum holding page at the url /forum and used the shortcode [bbp-forum-index] to embed the forum in this page, and it looks great.

    The Nice Layout

    However, when any forum link is clicked, you’re taken to a page with the starting slug of /forums and the ugly layout again. How do I keep the forum within the nice page layout?

    In the Settings I have:

    Forum root: forums
    Forum prefix: unchecked
    Forum root should show: Forum Index
    Single forum slugs / Forum: forum

    If I change the forum root to /forum that overrides the custom page I set up and I’m back to the ugly layout again.

    What’s the best way around this?

    Many thanks in advance.
