Using bbpress with Sydney theme - need help

Hello - wondering if you can help me with bbpress forum in Sydney - would like to do three things to update my current setup:

  1. Increase the font for the forum.
  2. Make the forum stretch across the full page. (this is not an option from the forum options)
  3. I do not want the slider on the forum - as when you click on "message board’ - it looks like it refreshes the home page only. You have to scroll down to see the message board/forum.

Can you help me?

I am attaching the current screenshot - and the website is www.ghvbl.com

THANK YOU!

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us about our theme Sydney and bbPress. I am happy to help with your queries. Let’s address them one by one.

#1

I am not sure which specific part of the forum you want to change its font. But, if I am correct you’d add this CSS code to your website’s Additional CSS.

    .type-forum .entry-header .title-post.entry-title {
      font-size: 36px !important;
    }

Please try it and let me know if I am wrong.

#2

Try adding this CSS code:

    @media only screen and (min-width: 992px) {
      .bbpress.forum-archive #primary.col-md-9 {
        width: 100%;
      }
    }

or this one, in case it doesn’t apply on other pages of bbPress.

    @media only screen and (min-width: 992px) {
      .bbpress #primary.col-md-9 {
        width: 100%;
      }
    }

#3

Try adding this CSS code:

    .bbpress .sydney-hero-area #slideshow {
      display: none;
    }

    .bbpress .sydney-hero-area .header-image {
      display: block;
    }

    @media only screen and (min-width: 1025px) {
      .bbpress .sydney-hero-area .header-image {
        max-height: 140px;
      }
      .bbpress .site-header:not(.float-header) {
        background-color: rgba(7,56,103,1);
      }
    }

Kharis - thank you so much for getting back to me. Almost everything worked great!

#2 & #3 look perfect - per your instruction.

#1 - size of the forum posts and replys are very small and I do not have the option to change them - if you have some CSS code that would assist me here that would be amazing! I am attaching the forum as it is now - here is the link - https://www.ghvbl.com/forums/

Hi,

Try adding this CSS code:

    #bbpress-forums,
    #bbpress-forums .bbp-forum-info .bbp-forum-content, 
    #bbpress-forums p.bbp-topic-meta, 
    .forum.type-forum.hentry * {
      font-size: 16px;
    }

First let me say - THANK YOU - I would be perfectly great with everything you have provided!

Beggars can’t be choosers, but the one thing that is still in very small font is any/all responses to the forum posts.

So the posts are perfectly formatted, but would love for the responses to default to the 16px font. Any idea how to do this?

Hi,

Try adding this CSS code:

    div.bbp-breadcrumb, div.bbp-topic-tags,
    div.bbp-template-notice li, div.bbp-template-notice p,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-forums, #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-lead-topic, #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-replies, #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-search-results, #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-topics {
      font-size: 16px;
    }
