Can I modify the bbpress forum url ?


I have BuddyPress with bbpress installed and everything is working just fine. But when I go to one of my forums the url is looking like this:

The /forum/forums/ is normal? Or I'm mising something on the settings?

Thank You,

    Hey there, Jose!

    You can modify this. The way bbPress structures the forum permalinks is a bit weird, but you can make it less awkward by changing the slugs in the bbPress settings.

    Go to Settings > Forums (not the Forum item in the admin menu, that's just to create/manage forums, you want to go to Settings, the Forums.)

    Scroll down, and you'll be able to set the root forum slug, and the slugs for each sub-part of the forums. Check out my screenshot.

    Hope this helps, thanks for your question!

      That's all I needed. And another thing...

      I changed the Forum root should show option to Topic by Freshness because my forums page was showing my blog posts.

      Is that ok?
