    Hi! I recently purchased Angular, and I was enjoying how easy it was to use until I began trying to set up the forum.

    I believe I installed bbPress correctly, but am not sure about what to do next. There are no bbPress template files under Page Attributes for my Pages to be configured with, only “Default Template” and “Archives”. Essentially, I followed this video on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDAp8M7CuPk) but could not continue forward when I reached the 10 minute mark (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDAp8M7CuPk&feature=player_detailpage#t=600s)

    I feel I may be missing something, and the documentation included with the theme only mentioned the forum feature minimally, as well as no set up video within the Video Tutorials.

    Thanks in advance for your support.



    Hi Ian,

    I’m not sure I follow. The bbPress uses forums and has its own options separate from the normal pages and posts. When active, you should see some new Admin tabs in the WordPress backend; Forums, Topics, Replies. You can create and moderate forums from the Forums and similar actions with Topics and Replies.




    Hi Devin,

    Yes, i understand how to create forums, topics for these forums, and replies using the bbPress toolbar on the left. It is the other pages for the forum that I am unable to create. If you watch the video I linked in my original post, the man in the video is able to make bbPress-specific pages such as: User Login, User Forgot Password, and User Register, among others which you can see in full here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDAp8M7CuPk&feature=player_detailpage#t=629s. My issue is that I cannot figure out how to create these pages.


    *not resolved*


    Hi IanReagan,

    I don’t believe the additional templates are supported with the Angular theme. I will forward to the topic/question to Kriesi to double check, but I believe the theme takes priority over the plugin for whether to add them in or not.




    Thank you for your response. I hope there is a solution, or else I am not sure how users would be able to register to join the forums.



    What this user does is using a theme that is optimized in another way for wordpress: the theme uses template files that are located in the theme folder, that a coded for special usages like login. Angular does not provide such templates, you would need to create them yourself (you can see those template default files as reference in the plugins/bbpress/bbp-themes/bbp-twentyten folder)

    Here you can see for example a page-user-register.php file.

    Angular is intended to be used with widgets: bbpress has a login widget for example that can be put into the sidebar so users are able to login. But I am also pretty sure that you can find plugins which create login or registration pages for you without the need to create additional template files…


    I know this is an old post, but I didn’t see it marked as resolved and I need to ask the same question.

    And, maybe I just didn’t understand Kriesi’s response. But, it doesn’t make sense to me why the theme doesn’t come with these PHP files/templates. Neither does the response on how to configure it: You can’t use the plugin widget without having the URIs for Register and Lost Password.

    Is there another response that can be more detailed, or perhaps a link to another post/tutorial on how to configure this? Because if not, the plugin and feature is useless and shouldn’t even be included as a feature.

    I love the functionality that this could bring, but I’m lost too.



    Hey Rob,

    You can create the register/login/recovery pages by using the bbPress shortcodes. Here they are:

    Account Shortcodes

    [bbp-login] - Show the login screen
    [bbp-register] - Show the register screen
    [bbp-lost-pass] - Show the lost password screen

    So if you wanted to create your Register with bbPress page, you would just add in the second shortcode to that page and then publish it. Then you can use the widgets by referencing that link.

    Hope that helps : )
