    Hello,

    I’m pretty new to wordpress+bbpress (been working with it for a few days now). In the past I have used other forum boards, but since I’m using wordpress now I figured while the hell not try out bbpress ?
    So far I like it, I’m still working things out but I managed to do what i wanted using google when I was hitting a wall.

    Now, what i’d like to do is change bbpress layout from this :
    now
    to something like this :
    then

    Even with some research I don’t know what/how to modify this. I have read the “Layout and functionality – Examples you can use” in the codex (and actually used one to get the forum list to be block instead of inline) but it doesn’t mention this kind of modification.

    My html/css/php knowledge is really basic, and obviously not enough to do this on my own.

    If someone could point me in the right direction I’d gladly appreciate it. Thanks !

    Wordpress version : 4.4
    bbpress version : 2.5.8-5815
    theme used : vantage

    Create a child theme, throw this loop-forums.php file in a folder called bbpress using ftp.

    Oh…So someone had already asked for it. I should have found it, sorry.

    Anyway, thank you it’s perfect ! 🙂

    Know this topic is old but does anyone have a loop-forums.php file for this layout?

    if you’re happy using bbpress templates, then grab the version from my style pack plugin

    bbp style pack

    it is in

    plugins\bbp-style-pack\trunk\templates\templates1\loop-forums.php

    it should work if you just copy it to your child theme’s bbpress folder.

    Alternately you can just use the plugin and once activated go to

    dashboard>settings>bbp style pack>forum templates
