buddypress installed with bbpress results in continual redirection to homepage

    I have followed the instructions here to enable sitewide forums: http://codex.buddypress.org/user/setting-up-a-new-installation/installing-group-and-sitewide-forums/

    I am using Persuasion BuddyPress Child Theme from MySiteMyWay.com

    http://sacredlivingcenter.org

    WordPress Version – 3.5.1 Multisite
    BuddyPress Version – 1.6.5
    bbPress Version 2.2.4

    The instructions there do not indicate what to do specifically to resolve a redirection issue. I have studied the forums here, and followed many of the helpful suggestions on resolving the issue, to no avail. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled both buddypress and bbpress. When I disable the buddypress forum component, then I can view the forums page, but the links within this page break.

    As a recap, the steps I have taken repeatedly as follows:

    1) network enabled the buddypress plugin
    2) enabled buddypress discussion forums under BuddyPress Components
    3) installed bbPress (using forums tab under BuddyPress settings) and configured Site Wide Forums only.
    4) set up archive slugs to be: Forums base: discussion; Topics base: topics
    5) removed any page with the word forum or forums as a slug
    6) created a page with the title community and slug community-board
    7) selected community page to be associated with Discussion Forums under buddypress components and saved.

    If I click on the community page, I am continually redirected to the home page.

    If I disable Discussion forums component in buddypress:
    the Community Board page is displayed, however the profile and settings tabs redirect to: 404 page cannot be found.

    Here’s the thing, buddypress appears to display the members page just fine.

    What do I need to do in order to integrate buddypress with bbPress successfully? It doesn’t appear following the instructions provided by BuddyPress to set up site-wide forums is successful. I appreciate any assistance the community can provide me in resolving this conflict.

    Thank you.

    I’ve also attempted to use the default forum base: forums and topic base: topics as well as change name of the page to Forums, but I continue to have the same issue. Any ideas/suggestions?

    If you use bbPress for site-wide forums (as you say you are), you do not need to enable “Group Forums” inside BuddyPress. So, go back to the BuddyPress settings, disable Group Forums, and then go and delete the (regular Page) called “forums”.

    no, you misunderstood. group forums are not enabled – this is not the problem.

    So what page should I associate with the discussion forums in buddypress if not the forums page as described in the documentation as I’ve pasted below? Even with a forum page titled differently and the slugs named differently (ensuring no duplication) the issue is still present.

    Note: I did NOT enable group forums.

    Here are the instructions I have followed:

    http://codex.buddypress.org/user/setting-up-a-new-installation/installing-group-and-sitewide-forums/

    A. Set Up Sitewide Forums only

    Install and activate bbPress.
    Proceed to bbPress.org Codex to get started in creating your Sitewide Forums.
    If you kept the default “forums” slug in Settings > Forums, you can create a new Page via Pages > Add New. Add Title “Forums” and insert the forums index shortcode and/or other bbPress shortcode you’ll find in the bbPress Codex then publish the new page.
    Add new “Forums” Page in your custom menu via Appearances > Menu.

    @isisjade Where is BuddyPress activated? In main site (default) or did you define it to work in subsite? Did you activate BuddyPress in main/subsite or did you activate it sitewide? By the same token did you activate bbPress where BuddyPress is activated (main/subsite)?

    Hi, I’m having issues similar to @isisjade

    can I confirm that bbpress, will handle group forums as well as main forums on its own? I have disabled the discussion forum component of buddypress, and the group forums r still active with just bbpress running.

    thanks

    @mercime thanks, makes everything a lot more simple by disabling the discussion component on buddypress. I also had a bug when activating ONLY the group forums with buddypress, for some reason it broke the group avatar uploader however this was fixed when I installed the site wide forums as well.
