I can’t see the link you provided but as someone who has just gone through the process I can say BBPress is incredibly easy to customize. There’s a few bits and bobs that can cause trouble but overall you can a large amount of control on every loop and page.
Copy over the template files into a subfolder bbpress on your theme and you can edit everything to your liking.
quite easy see
where there are step by step guides, and layout examples
It’s all quite easy once you understand the structure. Don’t expect to click some buttons though, if you want to make real changes to the default layout you’ll need some basic knowledge of HTML and php.

I am considering between bb press and simple-press. any recommendations?
thanks for the help!
That is a pretty awesome forum design, shame it’s not bbPress but for certain with a bit of work in that can be achieved 😉
how do i make a forum/ topic such that only a small group of my registered users can view and post?
Please reply me asap.
make the forum hidden, then only registered users can see it.
I only a small group of registered users to see. not all.
You can definitely achieve the look of that forum with bbPress 🙂 good luck!
I want a layout like PHPBB or SMF, that means forums list on the top not left side.
