    Hi:

    I installed Forums For Groups, but no foums-related links appear in

    domain.com/groups/groupname

    How can I go about debugging this?

    Additional info:

    in bb-config.php, I noticed this line:

    $bb->uri = ‘http://dev.cityblocchicago.com/wp-content/plugins/buddypress//bp-forums/bbpress/’;

    This looked odd to me because of the double-slash in the url.

    I also can’t load this URL, even if I remove the extra slash – the server 403s.

    Have you turned on per group the forums?

    Hi,

    Sorry, I don’t know what screen you mean. There’s

    /wp-admin/admin.php?page=bb-forums-setup

    Which says Forums for Groups is installed

    Then there’s

    /wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-settings

    Which shows the right path to the bb-config.php file

    Then there’s a group admin page such as

    /groups/name-of-group/

    Where no forums links appear…

    Did I miss something?

    Thanks for the help, and Happy New Year,

    -r

    Quick bump. Anybody seen this before?

    I should point out that I’m using a child theme of bp-default. Although the problem persists even when bp-default is activated.

    First, open bb-config file and retrieve the double slash in the uri path. You must have this
    `$bb->uri = ‘http://dev.cityblocchicago.com/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress/;`
    Control also your wp-config.php file and  htaccess and check for this double slash issue.
    As “dev” is a sub-domain of cityblocchicago.com, be carefull with the install path of WP.

    When on the group page, you have a menu called “admin” on the right
    Click on it and then on “settings”.

    Normally you see a checkbox “activate discussion forum” for this group. If you have allowed group creation for all your site members, the box is already checked by default. If not, check it  and save.

    Now the group menu has a forum tab. Click on it and you have access to a “new topic” button

    Thanks very much, chouf! I missed the checkbox for some reason.

    I also found that the $bb->uri works the same, it seems with the double-slash and without it. I changed it and am on the lookout for weird things. I found no such URI variable wp-config.php.

    About the 403 for http://dev.cityblocchicago.com/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress/

    I went into .htaccess and stripped out all the 403 redirects, leaving only the php mod_rewrite statements and the URL still 403s…

    Is that URL supposed to answer?

    Thanks again,

    No,there is no direct access to the plugin. So the URI gives a white page/403 ;-)
