Group forums not working

    Hello,

    I successfully managed to integrate bbPress 1.0 RC2 with WPMU 2.7.1 and BuddyPress 1.0.1. What is not working, however, are the group forums.

    When I try to start a new topic I get told that there was an error and nothing happens. There is no information about the nature of the error.

    I added a user to bbPress and made him admin (not key master). I activated XML-RPC in bbPress and installed the buddypress-enable plugin. I also added the bb_xmlrpc_allow_user_switching option to the bbPress config file.

    What else could I check?

    And is there a way to get more information out of this error message?

    Greetings and thanks in advance for your help,

    Florian

  • Could check to see if XMLRPC is working on your server. Download http://ourcommoninterest.org/downloads/xmlrpc-sayhello.zip which Burtadsit wrote.

    And to steal some words from Lance Willett:

    The test consists of two files. The first file is a bbPress plugin that you activate in the bbPress plugins area that acts as a XML-RPC server and responds to a simple “say hello” type call. The second file goes in the root of your MU setup.

    This test bypasses all the “bbpress_live/discover_pingback_server_uri()” stuff that might be giving you problems. If this works then the issue is most likely in that area and could be a host/server problem.

    To load the test, first install the “oci-bb-sayhello.php” file to your bbPress install root in a folder called “my-plugins” (create the folder if it doesn’t exist). Then log into bbPress and activate the plugin. Next, drop the “oci-bp-sayhello.php” file into the root of our MU install so that you can navigate to it easily. Then load “your-site/oci-bp-sayhello.php” in a browser and see what the output is.

    Thanks for the quick reply and the debugging options!

    This is the result:

    “-32300 >> transport error – HTTP status code was not 200″

    I guess that is not good. :)

    xmlrpc.php is reachable and returns 200 on a GET (although it seems to require POST)

    I just noticed that every attempt to post something in any (non-group) forum leads to a screen filled with the following error message:

    Warning: cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()! in /[path to bbpress]/my-plugins/buddypress-enable.php on line 53

    I could fix the last error by switching to PHP5.

    The sayhello test and the group forums are still not working, though. :(

    Florian, if the test isn’t working, then the group forums ain’t gonna work.

    You need to confirm with your host that they support remote procedure calls (and XML-RPC specifically)? It might be that they are not allowing remote calls to be made to the same server.

    And try reading burtadsit’s post here.

    I contacted my host about the problem and they could indeed fix it. Everything is working fine now.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hello,

    I did ALL you say, even trying “xmlrpc – Say hello from bbPress” plugin, and I received the “Hello from bbPress!” msg but Forums dont work, no way, i am desperate, i have tried bbpress alpha 6 rc1 rc2 rc3, i am just out of ideas.

    Can you tell me what more i could check in my server? i tried same procedure in other server and it works ! but its not my server, and in mine no way … phpmemory is 64 mb so…

    i have tried for 5 days…. right now there is integration of users, if i log in wp mu I am also imn bbpress but i dont have “enable forums” options, i have the infamous ” Attention Site Admin: Group forums require the correct setup and configuration of a bbPress installation.”

    Are you having the same issue as the original poster? If not, you should start a new thread as this thread is marked as resolved and few people will pay attention to new support questions in resolved threads.
