    Hello,

    I’m working with WordPress MU 2.8.6 and Buddypress 1.1.3

    I have successfully set up forums under the buddypress menu. However, when I set up a group (and enable discussion forums) I am still unable to post a new topic. I click on the “post new” link and nothing happens. Help most appreciated.

    thanks

    Michelle

    Hi Michelle,

    I think I know where the problem lies.. BuddyPress 1.1 does not need the BPPress integration plugin and it might actually cause problems. So I would advise you to uninstall BuddyPress completely remove buddypress (also remove the BuddyPress tables from the database) and disable and delete the BB integration. Then install BP again and activate the forum component on your BuddyPress admin page.

    Let me know if this helps

    Same issue here…new install and can’t add forum topics as bp doesn’t list groups in the dropdown menu.

    sorted it.

    1 – go to forum settings in MU admin and click ‘re-install’

    2 – select ‘Set up a new bbPress installation’ (simple on click thing, not as scary as it sounds)

    3 – Complete Installation and set up a new group and start a forum post.

    should now work ok.

    I’m having this issue as well. I have followed iainnorman’s instructions however the problems are still there. I can actually click the set new topic button however it showed a blank page at the end.

    You guys can view the problem at this url : http://club-aus.co.cc

    Help needed, cheers.

    I too cannot create a forum topic. I tried disabling then creating a new forum. Then, I tried to create a topic. My Groups appear and I am able to select them, but the new topic does not appear. I tried using different browsers, but that didn’t make a difference.

    I moved files in site to root…..
    Hosting company:
    Total Choice Hosting

    I am also having this problem on a brand new WP/BuddyPress/ GenesisConnect:StudioPress installation.

    Groups Create, Forum Topics do not.

    OK, My problem was fixed by creating a new group, and posting to that. Working with groups created BEFORE bbpress installation failed. That was stupid easy :)

    Hi!

    The problem with the creation topics arose after during the creation of the group – namely, invite users – server dropped connection timed out .. As a result, when creating a group does not create a entries in bb_forums…

    If the table for the group to ask existing forum_id from the table bb_forums, then the topics are – but they are already attached to another (existing) group ..

    Help))))

    I had the same problem with one of my group forum, I went to phpmyadmin to follow neopeacock linked solution but couldn’t find the forum_id in the database for the group that was giving me the error. So I just wen to group admin setting and disabled the forum for the group then re-enabled it and which solved my problem. :)
