Batch enable forums
(Weird, I tried twice to post this earlier and while the topic created, it says “There are no posts for this topic.”. The irony… Anyway, here I go again:)
I’m getting the “There was an error when creating the topic” error message when I’m trying to post on some of my groups. Looking at the database, there’s no forum_id set on the wp_bp_groups_groupmeta table, nor there’s a bbPress forum for these groups.
If I manually disable and re-enable forums for an affected group, then it starts working fine, and the forum_id is added and the bbpress forum is created.
The problem is I can’t do this manually for all the groups, since I have a HUGE number. Over 100k. Is there a way of enabling forums in batch? Or perhaps wipe the current forums and re-install them, forcing BP to create forums again for every single group (I don’t mind losing the current forum content). I tried the re-install function on the control panel and it didn’t make a difference. The old forum tables are still there, and the problem groups still don’t have a forum.
