the formatting is very messed up. Should it be just a link to the forum on the home page, or can it have all its topics there? I just put in the shortcode

[wpforo item="forum" id="17"]

and it gives me what appears to be an iframe, in courier, with giant spaces.

If I simply put in a link to the forum it works fine - maybe that's the easiest??

Hi @briegull,

Please edit the page/post content in the Dashboard where the shortcode is added, then click on the "Edit as HTML" option and remove the <pre> tag if it exist, save and check again.

perfect!  Thanks. Stay tuned - I'm sure we're going to have a lot more questions - we are going to use it to build out all our courses.  Any idea when the opportunity to have custom codes for one topic but not all will happen?
