Page with forum index shortcode not using page template

  • anamariav


    bbpress: 2.0-rc-5

    wordpress: 3.2.1

    theme: woothemes canvas 4.4.0

    I think I have not understood how to add bbpress to my site correctly.


    1. Installed bbpress plugin and in forum settings, set Archives Slug > Forums base to “community”.

    2. Created a page with slug “community” and added [bbp-forum-index] shortcode.

    3. Using widget logic plugin, added some sidebar widgets to display on this page.

    4. Visited /community page. My sidebars are not showing and looking at source code reveals page is using a forum archive template and not a page template.

    5. Changed page slug to something other than “community”. The page then displays the sidebars I have set. However, the breadcrumb navigation still links back to the /community forum archive page without my sidebars.

    How can I set things up so that the forum index appear on the page where I placed the shortcode and not on a different forum archive template page, and also have the breadcrumb navigation work correctly?

    Thanks to anyone for any suggestions.

    Now using bbpress 2.0.

    One last shot to see if someone could help me out with this, as I still am stuck.
