No register or login buttons?
I’m obviously missing something quite fundemental 🙂
I’ve installed bbpress (WordPress 3.9.2, bbpress 2.5.4), created some forums, and put the forum index on to one of my pages. All of this works fine.
What I don’t have is a login or register button at the top of the forum list? I have a search button but that’s it. It would be handy to have a ‘view profile’ button up there too. How do I get these buttons, is there some extra code I need to add?
Also, which file would I need to change if I wanted to alter the appearance of the forum a little – for example make the font a little larger.
My forum page is here: http://www.blueberrycovebeads.com/forum
i think you alread implemented the login and register buttons you were talking about.
i also recommend adding a border to the text input boxes of the register and login forms, because they seem invisible, and also for the submit buttons for each form.
you can just use simple css to fix that.
to edit the appearance of the forum you can copy bbpress.css into your child and edit that then changes you make will affect the look of your forum.
you can also copy the templates in wp-content>plugins>bbpress>templates>default>bbpress
i recommenced just copying the whole bbpress folder into your child theme.
there is more in the documentation about this.
looking through the rest of the bbpress documentation isnt a bad thing too.
Hi blueberry cove,
Would you mind sharing how you got your login/register, lost password links at top of your forum page. I have created these pages wordpress already. But each time I try and add a button or link to the top of the wordpress forum page. Button or link is added but breaks the bbpress forum itself and forum itself does not show only newly added link or button.
Thanks in advance
We are seeing the same thing. Installation was fantastically simple and worked like a champ. However, there is nowhere for a user to register or anything… I don’t understand what setting we are missing.
you guys could use this plugin
Wow Rob, I really feel stupid now. Spent 4 hours coping bbPress files to child theme and finessing the php.
Thanks for the share.
