Does anyone know of any good wordpress themes that are compatible with the bbpress plugin? I'm looking for something with a good layout, preferably a magazine/news type theme.

Thanks :)

there are a few out there but not many your best bet is a google search for bbpress themes with deep integration. You can always make a bbpress compatible theme though. – xLRDxREVENGEx Jun 5 '11 at 16:53

Best would be if you modify the bbpress theme a bit.Copy the entire folder "/bbpress/bbp-themes/bbp-twentyten" folder into your themes folder, rename it to something else, and modify your style.css to make it a custom child theme of whatever your current theme is.

Now you can modify as you you wish.

Another way :Copy all files of that folder inside ur theme.

In your theme's function.php add the following line.

add_theme_support( 'bbpress' );

Now you have your theme compatible with ur own bbpress page structure which you can modify as you wish. Hope that helps

If your budget stretches, the Genesis theme works well with bbpress once you install the compatibility plugin. There are a tonne of child themes for Genesis - you'll easily find a magazine / news type one that will suit. You can see it running on my site (currently the Lifestyle theme): http://www.nxtab.co.uk/discussion/

Unfortunately Genesis is a premium theme but I figured it's worth the cash to get something that actually works and looks good. Save yourself some time and get on with something productive!
