TIP: WordPress and bbPress users do not need separate registration to your blog or forum. one registration is enough for both, but WordPress and bbPress have separate permissions settings to the same user.

For example, same user can be restricted from posting anything in WordPress blog but be allowed to post in bbPress forums in any capacity.

Mobile Menu Setup

Theme Version 3 Guide

The warcraftWordPress theme is mobile and responsive.

Theme has been integrated with Slicknav Menu plugin (let me highlight this – the menu integration is multi-level JQuery touch responsive menu).

The site is designed so that left sidebar with its widgets gets removed on mobile browsers but the footer 3 widgets remain and stack vertically.

To activate the bile menu you need to install plug-in “SlickNav Mobile Menu”.
