    given previous experience of one line questions – can you try and write a bit more about quite what you want to do with bbpress.

    When you add Forums inside a category that category contains a hyperlink and when you click on it, it goes to a page that shows all of the Forums in the category.
    I am trying to remove that link from all categories.

    For example:
    You have a category called Web.
    Inside Web you have the Forums: WordPress, SEO, Programming

    When you go to the BBPress page (http://www.YourWebsite.com.au/forum) you will see…
    Web
    WordPress
    SEO
    Programming

    Currently Web links to http://www.YourWebsite.com.au/forums/forum/web which then displays
    Breadcrumb: Forums › Web

    Forum:
    WordPress
    SEO
    Programming

    I hope that made more sense

    Hi guys – I know this is an old thread – but how can we remove the hyperlinks from the forum categories. If someone clicks on the category it will display the same boxes as for a forum but no discussions or topic can be added as it is a category. I am looking for a way to disable that – is it possible?

    Thank you in advance!

    ok so

    find
    wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/loop-single-forum.php

    transfer this to your pc and edit

    find

    <?php do_action( 'bbp_theme_before_forum_title' ); ?>
    
    		<a class="bbp-forum-title" href="<?php bbp_forum_permalink(); ?>"><?php bbp_forum_title(); ?></a>
    
    		<?php do_action( 'bbp_theme_after_forum_title' ); ?>

    and replace with

    <?php do_action( 'bbp_theme_before_forum_title' ); ?>
    		
    		<?php if  (!bbp_is_forum_category( bbp_get_forum_id())){ ?>
    
    		<a class="bbp-forum-title" href="<?php bbp_forum_permalink(); ?>"><?php bbp_forum_title(); ?></a>
    		
    		<?php } else { ?>
    		
    		<div class="bbp-forum-title"> <?php bbp_forum_title();?> </div>
    		<?php }
    		?>
    		
    		<?php do_action( 'bbp_theme_after_forum_title' ); ?>

    and save

    create a directory on your theme called ‘bbpress’
    ie wp-content/themes/%your-theme-name%/bbpress

    where %your-theme-name% is the name of your theme

    Then transfer the file you saved above and put in in the directory called bbpress that you created above, so you end up with
    wp-content/themes/%your-theme-name%/bbpress/loop-single-forum.php

    bbPress will now use this template instead of the original

    you will probably need to add some styling to the class “bbp-forum-title”

    Is there an easier way, like with a plugin?

    Can things that are done with PHP usually also be done with CSS? I’m assuming the instructions given above involved PHP. The reason why I’m asking is because it seems easy to use Dashboard: Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS, but I don’t know if that would work. While PHP might be just as easy as CSS for some, CSS seems a lot easier to me.

    If that isn’t possible, is there a page that describes how to do it the PHP way for beginners? That would be helpful, because I don’t know things like where to find wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/loop-single-forum.php, how to create a directory, how to transfer files, whether %your-theme-name% is Twenty Twenty or if I have to give it my own name, or if doing any of the above will interfere with the bbp Style Pack plugin.

    Thanks!

    I’m going to try the Code Snippets plugin. Please let me know if I am on the right track.

    There was a critical error on my website, and now I can’t get to the log in screen. My site is at dancing4locations.org. I’m using version 5.5.5 of WordPress, and version 2.6.6 of bbPress.

    I got back in, but I had to use what is called safe mode, which means that I am still trying to get that code to work.

    Would someone know a simpler way for non-developers?


    jason4locations

    @jason975

    I got back in, but then I got messages that said “There has been a critical error on your website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions” whenever I clicked on Dashboard and a lot of the other things, even while using ?snippets-safe-mode=true (which I can tell you about if you’re interested). So, maybe I’m not in. I don’t know if the problem was only because of how I used the Code Snippets plugin, or if it was because of how I used it with bbPress.

    I don’t know if it is bad to ask this question in two places, but if I can turn on error reporting using a plugin, would you please recommend a plugin?

    Should I give updates here about how debugging is going, or does the error have nothing to do with bbPress?

    I got back into my site using my host’s control panel, but I’m still trying to make the hyperlinks go away.

    Thank you, Anterus, that is a good way to ask the question.

    Sorry, even though I navigated around a lot, I didn’t realize how the hyperlinks worked, and now I think it is better with them.
