    I would love to figure out how to specify the forum_id that the comment lives in from the post page for each post. This plugin is almost perfect for my needs but I can’t have the forum topics for my all my post in the same forum.

    I am using Advanced Custom Fields to customize the content input… Is there any way to get them to talk? I would be fine specifying this on every post.

    This would be an absolute life saver for me. Thank you in advance.

  • This was possible before version 5 of wordpress — the gutenberg editor doesn’t recognize this feature however (and as you see the bbPress Topics for Posts plugin hasn’t been updated yet). To get this feature to work with version 5 you have to deactivate the gutenberg editor — I used the classic editor plugin to do this. When the classic editor is activated, you’ll see that the “discussion” option within the post editor gives you an option to select with which forum the post should be associated. In that option box you should first check the box that allows comments, then additionally select that you want bbpress to handle the comments, and which forum to put them in.
