Is it possible to remove the reply box after every entry in a forum, but keep a "reply" button which, when pushed, would bring up a reply box??

Can't get this working. I'm using the extended layout. I'm also hiding the forum behind a password and not requiring people to register through either wpforo or wordpress. does that matter?

@briegull,

Please use the following CSS code to hide the reply box:

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .wpf-form-wrapper {
display: none;
}

The CSS code should be added in the Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles admin page "Custom CSS Code" textarea.

In any case please don't forget to delete all caches and press CTRL+F5(twice) on the frontend before checking.

wpForo has an option to enable the first post Reply Button for the Q&A and Threaded Layouts. The option is located in the Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Topics & Posts admin page:

. Q&A Layout - First Post Reply Button

. Threaded Layout - First Post Reply Button

I think it's working now. Thank you!  (I love keyboard shortcuts but since, for instance, hitting ctrl- F5 on my Mac results in Voice Over being activated, I'd like to know what the keyboard command is doing - clearing caches?? - so I can set it right)

yes, you are right, it for clearing cache.
