I’m returning to WordPress after years and found bbPress as a potentially good option to convert an old forum while converting the site to use WP. What I specifically need because of user mandate is threaded topics but they need to be in a specific layout. The default for bbpress when I enable threading, is kind of a hybrid flat/threaded. What I’d like to achieve is to have the individual posts display on a page with the thread below in the form of a thread of links to those posts/replies within the thread. This is specifically what my established users are accustomed to and what they demand. The forum goes back almost two decades (original threaded forum styling) and many of the users are original members so they don’t want any fancy, newfangled flat forums…
I’m confident that I can create the database script to do the forum migration of posts/thread/users into WP/bbPress but need some insights for achieving layout issues. Can I get some help / insights for achieving this layout? Thank you in advance.
