Ok, I did a lot of reading here. I decided to try something much simpler… and it worked for me.
I… uninstalled my forums from the WPadmin area
Made a copy of my bb-config.php on my desktop (just in case I needed to put it back
deleted the existing bb-config.php using file zilla FTP program
re-installed forum WPadmin area(with my forum page I created already selected)
It told me a new bb-config.php file was created. Tested out a post and it worked! I really hope this helps others!
A categories feature for finding gifts would be awesome! I am adding a lot of gifts. Also, not sure if it is something for you or cubepoints, but different prices for different gifts would add to the plugin huge!
