  • Resolved mann1


    I’ve running a standalone version of bbpress integrated with my wordpress site.
    I didn’t integrate the bbpress plugin because the main forum page of the plugin looked very ugly and on creating sub-forums, the names of the sub-forums appear horizontally.

    Something like
    Development(25,12), Support(34,43), Testing(34,21)

    Because of this ,the forum looked very primitive as the main forum page looked very small and empty. I wanted a normal usual looking forum which users have generally seen and I thought that going for bbpress standalone would be a better idea but maintaining the standalone version has been a nightmare-users can’t post sometimes, plugins don’t work properly etc and am thinking about using bbpress plugin.

    Can somebody please advice how to make those sub-forums appear vertically as it is on the wordpress homepage like this. I’m very depressed with this whole nightmarish experience.

    You can use css to make forum list appear “vertically” in the plugin.

    display:block; should do it.

    Can you please elaborate what exactly to do ? I’d be really really thankful to you for this as I’m in a mess



    Try putting
    .bbp-forum-info .bbp-forums li {display:block;}
    in your theme’s CSS

    Thank you very much. That was really helpful! 🙂



    Glad to be of help.

    If this solved your issue, please mark this thread as “resolved”. Thanks!

    Thanks, have marked that now.


    Can you tell us where we would put this?

    There’s nothing for forums that we can see in the CSS file for our theme. But under the bbpress files, we tried mucking around with inserting the above code and don’t know where it goes “Forums (Index) Page Template.”



    * Template Name: bbPress – Forums (Index)
    * @package bbPress
    * @subpackage Theme


    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id=”container”>
    <div id=”content” role=”main”>

    <?php do_action( ‘bbp_template_notices’ ); ?>

    <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

    <div id=”forum-front” class=”bbp-forum-front”>
    <h1 class=”entry-title”><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    <div class=”entry-content”>

    <?php the_content(); ?>

    <?php bbp_get_template_part( ‘bbpress/content’, ‘archive-forum’ ); ?>

    </div><!– #forum-front –>

    <?php endwhile; ?>

    </div><!– #content –>
    </div><!– #container –>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Sorry, the code I pasted above is from the file I named!

    Thanks! I have added that code and it worked fine, however I’m wanting to add a space/gap between the forum now that they’re listed vertically. How do I do this?

    Nicoleeuk To add spacing between the items of your listing you need to add padding or margin

    .bbp-forum-info .bbp-forums li {
    padding-right: 2px;

    Will add a 2 px space between the first item and the item to the right of it.

    You can fully customize the looks of the items of how far apart they should be from each other with padding.
