[Resolved] Group Forums
Lets get the usual formalities out of the way.
I’m using bbPress as the sitewide forums since I couldn’t seem to get sitewide forums to work from within BuddyPress (“Install Site Wide Forums” triggers an HTTP error).
I followed the BuddyPress forums codex here:
Since I had an existing installation of bbPress, I skipped down to the pertinent section. Step 1- I click on ‘use existing installation’, but am never prompted to provide a path to my bb-config.php file (and by extension the ‘complete installation’ link). It just accepts the ‘use existing installation’ and nothing more happens. I suspect this is the main problem, but we’ll get back to that.
From within my groups, I can see the forums link, and can click it, but there are no topics. I click ‘new topic’, give it a title and provide content, click ‘post topic’ and I get a big red box with the message “There was an error when creating the topic” and nothing else.
Could this be because BP can’t really find the bbPress install due to the fact that it never prompted me to provide a path to the bb-config.php file? And if so, HOW do I fix it? Or is there a workaround where I can add a snippet of required code to one of the BP php files, etc.
