Use WordPress Page instead of Forum Root
My objective is to not use the standard forum root index page that is auto-created and instead use a WordPress page with forum shortcodes.
The auto-generated forum root page is here: http://thirdscribe.com/cafe
and I would much rather use this page here: http://thirdscribe.com/cafe-forums
I have not had any success in customizing my root from the settings panel where it says: “Customize your Forums root. Partner with a WordPress Page and use Shortcodes for more flexibility.”
Failing the ability to use the WP page with shortcodes, I would like for the sub-sub forums to be shown, as well as the text descriptions for everything, in the root index. This forum supports a book network, and to have the subgenres showing under the genres is pretty important. Again, I would prefer to just use the page generated using the shortcodes, but I’ll accept just getting the subgenres and descriptions to show.
This is my first time using bbPress — I like it and like the back end administration, but I REALLY need to be able to show more information on this forum page.
I am running WP 3.8.1, Buddypress 1.9.2, and bbPress 2.5.3
Any help or suggestions appreciated.
