    To get BP 1.1 and Forums working :

    1. Installed BP 1.1

    2. Setup Forums using WP-Admin->BuddyPress->Forums Setup-> Setup a new bbPress Installation

    It reported that installation went through fine. “All done! Configuration settings have been saved to the file bb-config.php in the root of your WordPress install.”

    Then if I click on Forums link, I get a page with links to

    * Newest Topics

    * Most Popular Topics

    * Unreplied Topics

    * My Topics

    But I don’t see any link to add Topics or add Forums Category etc.

    Am I missing anything else?

    Did you create a group forum ?

    To get a forum you must first create a group.

    Did you activate “forums” in BP component config; ?

    Great it works. Thanks for the help.

    So how this forums different from groups?. To me it looks the same.

    In BuddyPress, all forums are still tied to groups, but now there is a group directory to assemble forums and topics in one central location.

    I would like to ask if I can use simple press instead of bbpress? if so how would I be able to configure it?

    Thanks?
