single forum

  • Hello. I am lost; I’ve been scouring the internets for a few days to no avail.

    I thought what I was looking for should be quite easy, but I can’t find it.

    What I need is a forum-less forum, where all topics would be displayed according to date (kind of like the view inside a forum, or the “latest topics” in bbpress), with tags and/or categories for easy search.

    All the forums I find are multiple-forums by default. I can’t find one that allows me, if I set a single forum, to display the topics only.

    What would be even more ideal is a forum that doesn’t make a difference between a topic, a post, and a forum. Anything could be replied to, and nested, to infinity. But I guess this really doesn’t exist.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Im the same as you. Have a look at what I did with my BBPress:

    I have only one category, and 35 posts on top, and users never go into that bottom category selection at all. If they do, it would appear exactly the same.

    So my forum now works only as one big category. And it has been very successfull thanks to that. I have disabled tags though.

    If you really want to go further than me, you can make the category selection invisible.

    Ok, thanks to your idea, I’ve got it working. I quickly slapped together a theme that names the forums “categories” and uses the “latest topics” as the main view. It’s a very awkward theme, the CSS is crap, there is repeated code here and there but it is just a proof of concept. I’ll work more on it later.
