Navigation: "Forums" link does not point back to shortcode page
Hi all, I have an issue that has been baffling me for ages. I’m running twenty twelve, WP 3.7.1, and bbress 2.5.
I’m using a page for my forum index using the shortcode. I want my forum navigation link to point back to my page with short code, not the slug created by the Forum Root field.
I have a child theme, and I would like to avoid changing core files because of updates. Is there any way to code the navigation link so it has my choice of address and link text?
Here is how I’m set up:
Slug for my forum wp page is” “forum”
Forums Settings Forum Root: “DO NOT WANT THIS TO BE WHAT THE LINK POINTS TO”
Forums Settings Single forum slug: “discussion”
Prefix all forum content is unchecked…my preference.
Here are the links:
Forum Index Page: http://www.aquariumcarebasics.com/forum/ (no problem)
Forum Page: http://www.aquariumcarebasics.com/discussion/amano-shrimp-care/ (no problems)
But when I’ on the amano-shrimp-care page, for example, the “Forums” link text points back to:
instead of http://www.aquariumcarebasics.com/forum/.
I know that if I populate the Forum Root field with the same slug as my shortcode page the forum index and page contents show up, but what I lose is my Page Title Tag. The Page Title Tag generated this way is the default tag from the Forum Root field. I suppose I can live with this, but I want to see if I can sort it out properly.
Please let me know, Thanks!
