    Im currently looking to customize the forums on my web site,
    Justinharvey.com
    and i only can access the main forum from the side bar. Does anyone know how to access a forum on your main page?

    Actually, you have your sitewide forum index page at http://justinharvey.com/F/

    One usually adds the styles to your theme’s style.css file. However, since you’re using the BP Default theme, any modifications made to the style.css file will be overwritten when you upgrade BuddyPress. It would be better if you created a child theme of the BP Default theme and add styles to that child theme’s style.css file. Or use a WordPress theme and install/activate the BP Template Pack plugin and go through Appearance > BP Compatibility process.

    what worked for me was to copy the source code of my forum page and slap in into the home page, + editing

    @harvey1233 If you want your forum index page as your home page:
    1. Create a new empty Page named “Blog” or “News” or whatever you want to represent as the list of new Posts in your site.
    2. Go to wp-admin – Settings > Reading – Front Page Displays > Choose Static Page.
    3. For Front Page – select the name of your Forums page
    4. For Posts Page – select the name you set in #1 above.
    5. Click on “Save Changes” button on the same panel.

    Ah that would work. Check out my front page though. it seems to work flawlessly, i only have 1 forum though.

    I was trying to do that earlier but i wasn’t able to figure out how to apply the forum to the front page,
    thanks for helping
