Sub Forum list – show content description

  • karlajw


    In the forum list only the parent forum (or parent category) shows the forum content. The sub forum list only shows title and counts.

    Is there a way to add the content to the sub-forum list items?

    Yes its all in the CSS here is my site forums if you like the look I can help you.



    How I did it is this. first I changed my css Using a child theme I just added this css to my style.css (Important to use a child theme so you don’t lose your changes.)

    #bbpress-forums .bbp-forums-list li {
    display: none !important;

    display: block !important;
    font-size: 22px;
    font-weight: bold;
    border-top: 15px solid blue;
    -moz-border-radius: 5px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
    margin-top: 10px;
    margin-bottom: 10px;

    .bbp-topic-title {
    font-size: 16px !important;

    What this did is I made multiple forums instead of categories. when I made the forums I used the text area to include the descriptions. Left the main topic forums closed. so no one could post on there.
    I then made sub forums (hence using my main forums as category tags) and again used the text area for the description while creating the forums. I left these open so post could be made in there.
    Now I have all kinds of styling you can change. Play with the borders margins colors and text size until you get what you like. I also found the text size to be too small for the descriptions so I used the plug in tinymce advanced to add custom fonts, font-sizes and colors for the descriptions.
