search input box

    How do I create a search function for my bbPress forum?

    I have enabled “Allow forum wide search” in Settings>Forums – but now I need a forum search input box.

    I do have bbPress style pack which will let me change the style of it, but need the search box first.

    WP version 5.8.1 (Astra theme) – bbPress 2.6.6 – site

    Thank you.

    If you have allowed the serach, then it should appear in your main forum list.

    If it is not, it could be a theme or plugin issue


    As a test switch to a default theme such as twentytwenty, and see if this fixes.


    If that doesn’t work, also deactivate all plugins apart from bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    If you cannot do this to your site (say because it is live) then use the ‘troubleshooting’ features of this plugin to let you test without affecting other users

    Health Check & Troubleshooting

    Then come back
