    I have several page templates in my site, and the template that the forum appears on by default isn't set up to display the forum correctly. I need to know how to change to change it. Thank you in advance for your help.

    I'm also having this question. bbpress plugin should have an option to let us choose the template it'll use. I don't know what is the default template it uses (may be single.php) but I need to change it to other template (like single-full.php which doesn't have sidebar).
    Really hope there's will be an answer for this question.

    Look in the code, and you'll see it looks for all the standard WordPress templates, then falls back to bbpress.php, then page.php, then index.php (which will probably not look so great.)

    Thanks John. I couldn't find that in the code, but I just created a bbpress.php with the correct styling and it fixed the page. I had another question, if you wouldn't mind. The forum won't allow me to change the URL like the rest of my pages. The default is http://www.webvaccine.com/forum/discussion/. I have adjusted my permalinks so that I can rename the other pages whatever I would like, but on the forum, "forum" is not editable, and if I delete "discussion", the plugin automatically re-populates it. I have already built software and prepared it for distribution that relies on a link to http://www.webvaccine/forum/ so changing the name isn't just a matter of preference, but a matter of functionality for the software. Is there a way to edit the plugin so that "discussion" does not autopopulate at the end of the URL?

    Hey John.

    Look in the code, and you'll see it looks for all the standard WordPress templates, then falls back to bbpress.php, then page.php, then index.php (which will probably not look so great.)

    In which file should I look for these?
