Buddypress Group Forums issue

    I have a fresh multisite/buddypress/bbpress.   I installed sitewide forums and made sure group functionality was turned on for forums.  This is on a sub site with buddypress multisite turned on.  I had previously had the same issues I have now on a already installed site.  Because of these issue I scrubbed the install, wiped the database and reinstalled fresh.  I still have this issue.  when I create a topic from buddypress group forum page it goes to a blank page with this error

    “<br /> <b>Fatal error</b>: Call to undefined function bb_get_id_from_slug() in <b>/home/spanef/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bp-forums-functions.php</b> on line <b>178</b><br />”

     

    I have seen previous solutions about deleting the forum ids in bp_group_meta which i did and upon recreation still didn’t work.

    I have the newest wordpress, buddypress and bbpress .  This is a fresh install.   Do you have any idea what i can do, I have to have this working.

    @chrchcol since you have a new installation, follow the updated instructions at http://codex.buddypress.org/user/setting-up-a-new-installation/installing-group-and-sitewide-forums/

    I followed those instructions and just did them again, it still gives the same error.

    @chrchcol sorry, I cannot replicate the issue. The only times I’ve seen reports of such errors was in older BP versions where you install group forums via old Settings > BuddyPress > Forums which is not in the current instructions for installing the group and sitewide forums

    - Did you by any chance use a webhost script like Fantastico/Softalicious/etc. to install your WordPress? If so, start from scratch and re-upload WP manually, i.e., via s/FTP etc
    - Check on the off-chance that you have a bb-config.php file in the root of your WP install (same level as your wp-config.php) and delete it.

    Usually, with this type of error it will be a misspelled function. What you’ll need to do is look at the function where it’s defined. Look at $this->, You will find that sometimes the variable has been improperly defined. Also, it may be that the programmer failed to define the method Instance Correctly. For Example, reusing Instance Methods, but failing to call on them properly. Methods are not stand alone. I would bet its one of these errors

    sounds like the bbPress files are missing from BuddyPress or the bbPress plugin isn’t installed

    Yes I have solved it.  I still had discussion forums still enabled in buddypress.  If you uncheck that option the problem with topics in bbpress group forums was gone.

    Thanks for the responses,

    I have just disabled discussion forums in buddypress and group forums also are now working.

    The bit I don’t get from that is, you are surely supposed to have this feature enabled so that your installation allows the forums to co-exist? As the line states: ‘Site-wide and Group forums allow for focused, bulletin-board style conversations.’ Are we therefore not just simply masking a deeper routed issue, or is this normal practice? One I’ve certainly never come across before.

    I’m also failing to see public group forums within the set page /group-forums/ Instead, group forums are showing up just fine on and just below my sitewide forum page categories. (This is perhaps just another issue I should really address in another post, after a little more research) – Not send this thread off on a different tangent. Mentioned it here just in case it is a related issue.
