how do you start a new forum topic without being in the site admin??
It’s at the end of the forum, unless your theme is having an issue (sometimes they do)
I add it to a forum sidebar – if you’re using a sidebar then come back and I’ll post how
nothing at the end of the forum (using Mantra) and I’m not using a sidebar… is there a way of putting a link somewhere on the forum page to let people start a new topic??
If you have a forum page ie a wordpress page that has [bbp-forum-index] in it, (ie you’ve use method 2 rather than method 1 in this link
Step by step guide to setting up a bbPress forum – Part 1
then go into edit on your forum page
Switch to text from visual and put
Create a new topic before the [bbp-forum-index] to get it at the top or after it to put it at the bottom.
or you could use
[bbp-topic-form] after the [bbp-forum-index]
[bbp-topic-form forum_id=$forum_id] to display a single forum topic form.
Lots of possibilities.
If you don’t have a set wordpress forum page, then you can create one, see method 2 in the link above
Thank you Robin!!
