Problem with Elementor Theme Builder

  • maxlevel


    I am not sure if this is more of an Elementor or a bbPress related problem.

    I try to create a page template for bbPress pages in Elementor Theme Builder.
    It only works for forum pages (the page where the topics of a forum are listed) but not for the page that appears when I click a specific topic (where replies are listed and the actual discussion takes place) and also not for the forum search results page.

    It seems like the Elementor Theme Builder only replaces one kind of a page (or custom post?) template of bbPress but not all of them. As I do not fully understand how bbPress is organized in regards to different page templates I think I cannot ask the most useful questions to Elementor support or forum.

    I tried lots of different display conditions but found no way to create a page template for this kind of pages. maybe somebody here has the same problem and found a solution or can help me to explain better what could be the problem?

    looks like this is what you need




    Hi Robin,

    As far as I understand that add-on it is useful when I want to create bbPress pages from scratch.
    This is not what I want.
    I am totally happy with the default design of bbPress that my theme delivers.
    The only thing I am missing is a right sidebar on all forum pages.

    I know that may sound quite complicated when you are not familiar with the way the Elementor Theme Builder works. It basically replaces all the header, footer, page and post templates of a theme. Every template has Display Conditions where it should appear (what it should replace). At least that’s how it’s supposed to work.

    I just can’t get the Elementor Theme Builder to apply the page template with the right sidebar to all of the forum pages but only to the forum page that lists all of the topics.

    My suspicion is that Topics are another post type than Forums and that is why the template only applies to “forums” posts but not to “topics” posts. “Forums” is the only display condition I can choose in the Elementor Theme Builder so maybe the other types are just missing.

    Hope that makes sense.

    ok, given that Elementor Theme Builder is a paid theme and bbpress one of the largest forum plugins, have you tried asking on elementor support?
