Login shortcodes totally mess up my header menu and footer.

  • Captain Ahab


    I’ve installed bbpress from the dashboard, created forums and topics.

    I am now trying to use the shortcodes to display the forum in a page

    these work for showing the forum




    but any shortcodes I use to add login,




    makes my top menu and footer loose all their formatting and makes them become lists. Using the login widget on a sidebar does the same thing. Here’s a screencap:

    I don’t know if it matters or could be the souce of this issue, but I am using a theme (dagda from wptitans…).

    Does anybody have any clue on how to fix that? I really would like bbpress to work!

    ..and sorry to ask a question that might already have been answered somewhere, I’ve been looking for a solution for a few hours now, any pointer would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hmm that’s strange. Where are you trying to use those shortcodes? Just in the main post editor?

    I’ve put the shorcodes in the main post indeed.

    just quickly went through the “theme compatibility” sticky and I am wondering if there are templates or css from the bbpress theme that I must copy to my WP theme’s folder?

    (sorry for my noobishness)

    No you shouldn’t have to do any of that for 2.0.x or 2.1.

    Does the shortcode show up on the page or just nothing?

    Captain Ahab


    no, the shortcodes don’t appear, but the login boxes do. It’s just the top menu and the footer that stop to behave.

    Hmm, what is the URL?
