#3105 new enhancement

Move titles out of display_forums() and into templates for easier styling

Reported by: rgilman's profile rgilman Owned by: mercime's profile mercime
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.5.12
Component: Extend - BuddyPress Keywords: needs-patch 2nd-opinion

I’m working on simplifying the UI of a Commmons In A Box site, which means I’m working with both BuddyPress and bbPress. While working on the group/forum page, I found that the forum title is hard coded (as a simple h3 with no other selectors) in display_forums() (see wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/extend/buddypress/groups.php at line 767). This is just before the content-single-forum template call.

In my case I wanted to remove that title and was able to do so with

#bbpress-forums > h3 {
    display: none;

But that feels like a workaround and it was a long hunt to find this bit of the UI in what I would think of as core code.

In exploring around display_forums(), it looks like this a common pattern: The appropriate title is hard coded into display_forums() and then the rest of the displayed content is handled via a template call.

My request/suggestion is that all of these titles be moved from display_forums() and into their associated templates where they can be customized through the normal child theme process.

I'm happy to offer patches if that would be helpful.

The forum template is used in other places as well, so maybe there is a reason why this is not included in the template. But let's see if core devs pitch in to share their opinion about it.

In 6488:

BuddyPress: Only wrap titles in h2 tags if they are not empty.

Allows easier overriding if titles are not desired at all.

See #3105.
