Forums redirecting to homepage
I am using wordpress version
I am using buddypress version 1.5
This happens when I use the defualt theme
I have permalinks enabled.
Working on a fresh(ish) install of both wordpress and buddypress, only other plugin running is jetpack.
I’ve installed buddypress and for the most part it’s working fine, but the final hurdle is getting the forums to work. site.com/members and every other page works fine, but mysite.com/forums redirect to the homepage.
However, when I delete the pages associated with forums, I can access the forums from the front end, but am told in the back end that “The following active BuddyPress Components do not have associated WordPress Pages: Discussion Forums”. The minute I create the page and associate it with the forums, it stops working in the front end, when navigating to my site.com/forums I get the message: The forums component has not been set up yet. Again, deleting this page from the pages backend makes the forums accessible from the front end.
And when the page is tied to the forums, it stops appearing in the menu. When it’s not tied, it appears in the menu but links to a normal page and not the forums.
Also, when I go to buddypress > forum set up, there is still the option to install forums, even though I already have. I can click on the install new link but it tells me I already installed it. Installing from existing doesn’t work either as it can’t find the config file in the root. Not sure if this is standard behaviour.
Any advice on how to get this working would be much appreciated. If it would help I can set up an admin account for someone if they let me know their email.
