    bbpress is using wp custom post types now, so should just be a post type template

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy#Single_Post_display.

    ie uses single.php if others do not exist

    else single-topic.php and single-forum.php in your theme etc

    Somehow I found it working by duplicating your index.php and rename it to forum.php

    then you can change your layout in your forum.php file

    yep. this works, I made a copy of single.php and named it forum.php.
    then added

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name Posts: forum
    */
    ?>

    and customised forum.php as I needed. BBPress defaulted to this new file.
    Thank you

    If you visit the website of bbPress itself, you will find more explanation on how to use templates within WordPress

    Hi, choibc. You really just have to make a copy of your single.php file, name it forum.php and create a template to assign to a page. Something like that:

    When we install BB Press for forum on our site, it creates lot of problems.
    firstly it does not allow to load the forum in full-width page style. For the persons, who are not familiar with editing the php and css stuff, cannot follow and to such tricks.
    For this some friendly plugin must be there.
    Secondly, once the BB Press is installed, everytime we load the forum page, it waits for infinite time to load completely and say that -
    "Waiting for insawsomee.info".......
    It continues even if you do have high speed connectivity....
    Please anybody help on this....
    I still like to use the BB forum on my site, but am getting feedbacks from my visitors so I am getting annoyed due to this problem...
    Please help...

    I also would like to have full width discussion page.
    Nobody of development team seems to take care of this forum to supply reasonable reply!!! What a pity!
