    Hi there,

    I’ve got some serious experience with WP and BP this past couple of years, and I’m now developing probably my best website to date. Nevertheless, I’ve encountered a critical error in BuddyPress that keeps me stall.

    This is the Sitewide Forums. I remember when installing forums in BuddyPress was a breeze… not anymore.

    (I’ve read all the codex) When clicking on Install Sitewide Forums, it all goes smoothly, but, once the forums are “running”, I start to realize…. I can’t see the forums, they’re not in the BPBar, they’re not in the activity…. and they may throw me a couple of errors here an there… help!

    What gives?

    == I remember when installing forums in BuddyPress was a breezeā€¦ ==
    The internal bbPress installation, Forums for Groups, is still a breeze. Group Forums are fully integrated with BP 1.5.2. While Sitewide Forums, bbPress 2.0.2, is compatible with BP 1.5.2, full integration will come in BP 1.6 possibly with script to migrate Group Forums to the Sitewide Foruns.

    As to the errors you are encountering, are these on a relatively new installation? If you change to bp-default theme and deactivate all plugins except BP and bbPress, are the errors still showing up? If so, you might want to report it in Trac. http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/

    It is a new installation, without plugins, just the Score theme (http://themeforest.net/item/score-review-wordpress-buddypress-theme/703127) wich has been last updated few days ago and without bugs.

    Do we have a BP 1.6 Release Date?

    If your problem is specific to the Sitewide Forums not working, your best place for support is the bbPress forums at http://www.bbpress.org. They work with BuddyPress’ activity stream.

    On the BuddyPress side of things, we’re deprecating the BuddyBar, so there was no point building bbPress 2.0 support into it. In BP 1.6, we’re switching over the the WP Toolbar. And in conjunction with bbPress 2.1, it’ll integrate forums into BuddyPress groups.

    No date for BP 1.6 yet, but will hopefully be in beta soon.

    Like @mercime alluded to, it’s safe to assume the integration issues are in your theme.

    Hope not, I’d be damned…

    But in the theme’s demo, everything is working beaufully: http://ghostpool.com/wordpress/?theme=score

    Exactly as I’d like to.

    Change to bp-default theme and check if issue is corrected. If it is, you know what to do.
