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.
Forum > Forum Topic
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…
