You could see this component in Settings just under Components:
Components – Pages – Settings
All (9) – Active (9) – Innactive (0) – Must-use (2) – Retired (1)
Look this (1) in Retired and you’ll find what you want. 😉
It’s also written this:
Group Forums: BuddyPress Forums are retired. Use bbPress.
Not my business, but I was really confused with these bbPress <-> BuddyPress forums, too.
It’s not necessary to write that ‘Group Forums’ are some kind of a component of BP when they are actually not. It bears only unneeded confusion for users. ‘Group Forums’ are just an option to connect some group with a particular forum from all the forums in a site, but all forums are bbPress forums at the end. BP doesn’t have any forums in it!
I think you should better leave the settings for people to chose if they want their groups to have forums or not while they are creating these groups. That’s enough – no more explanations are needed then. To write articles about ‘Group-forums’are really confusing for all the newbies. ‘Group forums’ or whatever the name is, are another yet forum in bbPress parental for other forums.
This part with these shortcodes is another big mess too – people DON’T UNDERSTAND this – I’m 99,99% sure that I am not the only one who think this way.
Some details in BP are quite well explained (UNNECESSARY) while other ones (IMPORTANT ones) are totally ignored. There is almost none info for shortcodes for example – how they work, where to write them, how to make them work, lists of them, etc… 🙁
Yes, I am working on easyPHP install.
I will chek these you’ve suggested.
Not sure what you mean. First of all, you wouldn’t have been able to select Group Forums page as the parent for all group forums if you didn’t create the page.
No, no… not ‘group-forums’ as a page. I have forum (type: category) named ‘group-forums’ and it is pointed to be the parental forum for all my group forums. I have a page with the same slug but I don’t know for what to use it. Think it is even meaningless…
The good news is that I resolved the problem with the installation of my group forums. It seems that my settings were good ones, but simply they didn’t work… I just did deactivate bbPress plugin and delete it. Then I did upload and install again and everything is just fine at now. I already have my forums in my groups. But this is a bit of strange, because I didn’t set anything new. It worked by itself. 😀
I don’t understand this part (Settings -> Forums):
Custom root slugs to prefix your forums and topics with. These can be partnered with WordPress pages to allow more flexibility.
Forums base: forums
Topics base: topics
Should I have real pages named after these slugs or not?
I mean, to create pages by myself or it is not necessary?
Forum settings for BuddyPress
Enable Group Forums: [[checked]] Allow BuddyPress Groups to have their own forums
Group Forums Parent: [[group-forums]] is the parent for all group forums
Is this correct or not? And should I have a real page named after the slug ‘group-pages’ or it conflicts with my forum (type: category) named same way ‘group-forums’ and parental of all the Group Forums? Maybe sth like this ‘pg-group-forums’ and ‘ctg-group-forums’ to destinguish them…??? I am totally messed. 🙁
And should I then have a new page for each my group forum where to display or it’s wrong way?
You don’t need to create users such a way. As an administrator of your site you are able to create them in the database directly or from Admin panel (+New -> User). Honestly, I do not know how this key is generated and where you could find it… 🙁
This key works same as the link to confirm your acount sent to your e-mail works. The difference is that the key has to be manually entered in the field on “Activate” page. You can hide this page from your menu for logged in users because it is meanless for them after registration, activation and logging in the site for the first time.
try this one:
Buddypress Xprofile Custom Fields Type v 126.96.36.199 https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type/
You can rename the field you need but even much more. You can add your custom fields and descriptions of these new fields. You could organize new fields in new groups – just like the “Base” is a group of fields. Install the plugin and you will get some option called “Profile Fields” in (Admin Panel -> Users).
