    From previous posts you may recall I am having issues with the BP group forums. After upgrading from RC 1 to RC2 forum posts stopped showing up in the site wide widget. I have downgraded, upgraded, reinstalled, and pulled my hair out, but I think I am closer to finding the problem.

    In RC1 group forums were created as their own forum in BB Press. Now in 1.0 new forums are being created as children of the first forum created during installation. Why is this and is it supposed to be this way? If it is not supposed to be this way. How to I change it?

    WordPress 2.7.1

    Buddy Press RC1.0

    bbPress 1.0 alpha 6

    hmmm. Yep, that’s what is happening. Not sure why but I’ll take a look.

    There seems to be a new configuration option for the group forums:

    define ( ‘BP_FORUMS_PARENT_FORUM_ID’, 1 );

    What this allows is all group forums, when created, to be children of a specific forum. It defaults to forum id 1 in bbpress. That would be the first one created during install. You can change this behavior by defining another forum id to be the parent forum or turn off this completely in bp-custom.php like this:

    define ( ‘BP_FORUMS_PARENT_FORUM_ID’, 0 );

    Zero for ‘do not do that stuff’ or some other existing forum id you want to be the parent. You’ll have to go into the back end of bbpress to rearrange the forums that have been already created. Just set their Forum Parent to be -None-.

    Forum posts done directly in bbpress do not show in activity.

    First off, thank you for taking the time to help out. It is greatly appreciated.

    Well they won’t show if the group isn’t public. They aren’t showing on public groups?
