Modify "New Post" Form

  • RyanSSealey


    WP Version: 3.8
    bbPress Version: 2.5.2

    I would like to modify the new post form that displays below the current topics in a forum. I was trying to do it with only CSS, but I have run into a problem.

    I want to remove the “Topic Tags” field below the body area. I initially tried with the following CSS:

    input[id=bbp_topic_tags] {
    display: none;

    This removed the form and label themselves, but there is a <p> </p> tag around these with no Class or other identifier, leaving a noticeable space.

    What is the best way to accomplish this or modify the form?

  • bbPress might not have many settings but it does have this one 😉

    Topic Tags
    This will disable topic tags site wide and will no longer show topic tags associated with each topic or the topic tag input form.



    I can’t believe I missed that. Thanks for pointing it out!

    I was hoping to learn a way to manipulate those <p> tags anyway so I could make the whole form for admin users more compact (like the topic type and topic status fields). So if you happen to know of a way, please let me know.

    Thanks much either way!

    You could add some custom code with a filter before and after the tags section and apply some custom CSS rules using:

    bbp_theme_before_topic_form_tags & bbp_theme_after_topic_form_tags

    Or make a copy of form-topic.php in your themes /bbpress folder and edit the template to exactly how you would like it.
