Is there a way to add an "Add Topic" button on the main home page for a forum in an Extended Layout like you can all the other layouts? For example, the Simplified layout has an option in Settings called "Display Add Topic Button on Forum List" but Extended Layout doesn't have it. Any idea how to do this?

@seancallahan,

That's why wpForo has 4 layouts, you can change to another layout by your need.

@seancallahan

if you need the button and function, you can edit the forum.php from layout 1

search for

	<div class="wpforo-category" <?php echo $cover_styles['cover'] ?>>
        <div class="wpforo-cat-panel" <?php echo $cover_styles['blur'] ?>>
            <div class="cat-title" title="<?php echo esc_attr($cat['description']); ?>">
                <span class="cat-name" <?php echo $cover_styles['title'] ?>><?php echo esc_html($cat['title']); ?></span>
            </div>
            <div class="cat-stat-posts" <?php echo $cover_styles['info'] ?>><?php wpforo_phrase('Posts'); ?></div>
            <div class="cat-stat-topics" <?php echo $cover_styles['info'] ?>><?php wpforo_phrase('Topics'); ?></div>
            <br class="wpf-clear" />
        </div>
	</div><!-- wpforo-category -->

and replace with

	<div class="wpforo-category" <?php echo $cover_styles['cover'] ?>><div class="wpforo-cat-panel" <?php echo $cover_styles['blur'] ?>>
            <div class="cat-title" title="<?php echo esc_attr($cat['description']); ?>">
                <span class="cat-name" <?php echo $cover_styles['title'] ?>><?php echo esc_html($cat['title']); ?></span>
            </div>
             <?php if( WPF()->current_object['template'] === 'forum' ) wpforo_template_add_topic_button($cat['forumid']); ?>
            <div class="cat-stat-posts" <?php echo $cover_styles['info'] ?>><?php wpforo_phrase('Posts'); ?></div>
            <div class="cat-stat-topics" <?php echo $cover_styles['info'] ?>><?php wpforo_phrase('Topics'); ?></div>           
            <br class="wpf-clear" />
        </div>
	</div><!-- wpforo-category -->
    <?php if( WPF()->current_object['template'] === 'forum' ) wpforo_template_topic_portable_form($cat['forumid']); ?>
