    Hi,

    I am trying to enable forums on my bp install
    i followed the instructions in the admin for the setup, have the bb-config.php in place but it doesnt see to do anything even though it says installation went ok. i dont see the tables in the db and the forums created in my groups etc.
    help is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Shai

  • If you create a new group, you’ll have an option to create the forum. For existing groups, go into the admin settings for each, and you’ll have to check the box to enable the forum for that group.

    The database tables are only created once when a
    group has forum enable and someone visits its forum page.

    Oh no! Does that mean I can’t set up a general forum OUTSIDE of a group? I want to create a forum that’s for EVERYONE, that anyone can post to no matter what group they are in or not. I THOUGHT I could do this by using the bbpress option, but my bbpress forums do not show up on the forum tab. (http://www.highvibework.com)

    (I “hid” the Groups tab by commenting out the tab on the header.php file, because I don’t want to enable that feature for my crowd, but I also didn’t want to take away the forums function.)

    Thanks in advance for any help.
