    Hi, I having a problem with the Group Forum. I did installed the Forums for Groups, and also enable the forum on each group. However, when I try yo create a new topic it gives me this error:
    This group does not have a forum setup yet.

    Why is that?

    You might just need to “jog” system up a bit. Go back to the Group > Admin where you enabled forums, and disable forums, and Save. Go to another page then go back to Group > Admin and enable forums and Save.

    Check two areas:
    - server: see if there’s a bb-config.php file at root of your WP install, same level where you find the wp-config.php
    - database: check if 7 tables were generated in your database or not. See examples of bbPress tables in either single WP and WP multisite at http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/installing-group-and-sitewide-forums/3/#bp-forums-db

    I do have bb-config.php at my root directory.
    But do i need to install the site wide bbPress forum in order to make the group forum works? I just want the forum in the group only.

    No. I never said that. I just linked to area where there’s a screenshot of the database with 7 forums tables so you could compare yours. Were the 7 bbPress tables for the forums generated in your database?

    Also, double-check if the database information in your bb-config.php is correct.

    Yeah, I found the problem, turn out is the bb-config.php misconfig…..

    Anyway, thanks @mercime for your help.
