Use Forum Path for Topics URL?

  • Kr3m1in


    I’m quite peeved that bbPress doesn’t have a url structure like this for topics:

    but rather

    Is there any solution for this? (If plugin requests aren’t permitted here, please let me know kindly and I’ll remove it.)

    Hi, i have the same problem. Did you find a solution to get nicer URLs rather than the standard /topic/topicname-slug? If i add the forum prefix in forum options, i get /forum/topic/topicname and in forum overview /forum/forum. Not very nice. I would rather like: /forum/subforum/subsubforum/topicname Does anybody know?

    No solution yet… I just ended up getting ip.board.

    If there is a solution to this issue, I’d gladly switch back to bbPress.



    I need to speak up and revive this issue, because while I think Jacoby does an EXCELLENT job with this, PLEASE let me lend my 10 years of experience that began while building from scratch and sustaining a 10,000 plus online community (now with FOX Sports). I am a digital marketing manager professionally. I do it successfully.

    I know what I’m talking about.

    bbPress is an awesome product. But the URL structure, and the missing LOGICAL progression that should be Forum to child topic w/ understandable navigation, is ABSOLUTELY perplexing.

    Please don’t give me the “build a plugin” talk, either. This is common sense.

    I’d *LOVE* to hear a rational argument against this …



    Couldn’t have stated it better myself. I’m glad I’m not the only one here on my knees for an integrated and clean WordPress based forum solution (with rational permalinks, of course.)



    9 years on, I’d still love to see this…
