BBPress Component Keeps Deactivating

    Everytime I go to the BuddyPress component area and click “enabled” for bbpress forums, when I hit “Save Settings” the forum component returns to “disabled.”

    Any clue why this happens? I thought I’d integrated forums on both sides, but the “forum” tab never appeared on my BuddyPress installation. Is there a step-by-step tutorial on full integration?

    “bumping” will not help you. It is only annoying. If noone replies, it is because noone reading the forums knows the answer. (I’m reading this after having been away – I would have done so even without your “bump”.) Please do not do it again – anywhere on the internet.

    I have no idea why the component returns to it’s “disabled” state, try re-installing – either just it or the entire setup.

    A “forum” tab will never appear on your BuddyPress site, unless you apply specific code. You can put something like this in a file called bp-custom.php in your wp-content/plugins folder:

    function add_forum_to_main_menu() {
    ?><li><a href="http://example.org/forum/" title="Forum">Forum</a></li><?php
    }
    add_action( 'bp_nav_items', 'add_forum_to_main_menu' );

    Thanks for the information. I tried uninstalling the buddypress plugin (even physically deleting the file), but its remnants remain. I’d hate to delete my entire wpmu installation just to deactivate one plugin. I understand buddypress 1.1 is expected in late august with improved forum integration. I’ll wait until then.

    If your database is messed up now, just drop all of the tables that go wp_bp_

    The wp_ is your prefix from your bb-config.php and the bp_ is the prefix from the buddypress. just drop all tables with the wp_bp_ and you should be fine to reinstall.
