Set default forum when creating new topics in bbPress

    As the title says, is it possible to select a default forum that is set when people create a new topic? The thing is I only have ONE forum and it’s just crazy that people have to choose it before being able to post.

    Right now the default choice is (No Forum) and when you click Submit with No Forum posted, you get this: ERROR: Forum ID is missing.

    Hope some bright mind comes along and sees this post.

    I’d like this too. For some reason there was a default in my previous bbpress site, but in the latest installation, I have ‘No Forum’ selected.

    Any way we can change this?

    This is exactly what I’m talking about. I also remember having a default forum in a previous version of the bbPress plugin, but this may just be wishful thinking.

    Yep – I’ve just installed an old version of BBPress and it’s working – I’ve got a default forum again.

    It’s also fixed the bug where page meta titles don’t work on WordPress blog posts.

    I told them about those titles a month ago and thought it would have been fixed by now. It’s a pretty serious problem if you rely on traffic from the search engines.

    [bbp-topic-form forum_id=$forum_id] – Display the ‘New Topic Form’ for a specific forum ID

    So if the forum you want has an ID of 341 use [bbp-topic-form forum_id=341]
