Rearranging/removing forum column headings

    Hi — I’m trying to add BBPress to my WordPress blog. I’m currently running Genesis, Prose theme (although that may change soon). My BBPress version is 2.21+, and I’m also trying to use Genesis Extend (I think successfully) and, at the author’s suggestion, I am trying to use the bbPress Custom CSS File. The immediate thing that I’m trying to do is to rearrange and remove some of the forum column headings. The default is:

    Topic / Voices / Posts / Freshness

    I’d like to change that to

    Topic / Posts / Author

    And include information in the Topic column about what category it’s in, as well as include Freshness data in the Author column.

    Is there an easy way to do this, or is this all CSS Styling? (Or should I try to find a bbPress theme I like?)

    The NEXT question then becomes, um… does anyone know where the bbPress Custom CSS File is? I poked around a bit in FTP and couldn’t find it. Do I have to generate it myself and upload it? Do I stick the file in the Prose theme folder, the Genesis theme folder, or the bbPress folder? Or the bbPress Custom CSS File plugin folder?

    Many thanks in advance!

    I’m the author of bbP Genesis Extend and bbP Custom CSS.

    For bbP Custom CSS, you will need to create the CSS it will use.

    https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bbpress-custom-css-file/installation/

    Unfortunately re-ordering the columns would require creating a custom theme, it’s not something that can be done with a CSS solution.

    Can one create a custom child theme AND use Genesis Extend? Or do you have to start all over? TIA… (running off to experiment)

    Oh — also when working with a bbPress theme (with the Custom CSS File plugin or with a custom theme), everything says to copy things to “your current theme.” Does that mean Prose (my WP theme)? or to the folder named bbpress/bbp-themes in the plugin folder? Thank you again!

    (FWIW, I’m trying to copy the instructions for the CSS File plugin you link to above, as well as the instructions for how to create a custom theme from this thread: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-20-theme-compatibility).

    TIA!
