Full Theme Package Replacement

GD Quantum Theme Pro contains a new theme package to replace bbPress Default one. Just activate the plugin, and change the active package, and it is done, your forums are loaded using new theme.

Fully Responsive

bbPress Default theme package is not made to be responsive, and many of its elements don’t show correctly on small screens. Some themes fix that, but it is never perfect.

GD Quantum Theme Pro is designed as mobile-first responsive and it uses Flexbox to properly create all the layout elements, from the forums/topics lists to a single topic and user profile pages.

The plugin styling includes several breakpoints to manage resizing of various elements. And, plugin relies mostly on CSS for responsiveness, with only some minor things achieved using JavaScript.

Works with any theme

Just like the bbPress Default Theme package, Quantum theme works with any WordPress theme. And, for some themes it might require some minor styling tweaks because it is not possible to account of every theme styling that can be aggressive in styling some basic HTML tags.

Also, GD Quantum Theme Pro has additional CSS styles targeting some popular WordPress themes to fix some of the themes quirks. To help with that, plugin applies theme stylesheet and template names to the BODY tag for all the bbPress related pages.

Customizer Support

All the plugin settings are available in the WordPress Customizer, under the ‘bbPress Quantum’. Because of that, the plugin has no admin side settings to work with, everything is in the customizer.

All options are split into 3 panels: Style, Settings and Tweaks. From Styl,e panel you can select the current colour scheme. Settings and Tweaks panels contain various options to control individual forum elements and features.
