I am thinking that this issue may have been caused by some sort of issue caused by either the W3 Total Cache or WP-Optimize plugins, but cannot put my finger upon it. I had deactivated all plugins for a bit to see if that helped correct this issue, but it still hasn’t.
It seems that after a while, BuddyPress will then collect the information and record it, but the timing isn’t necessarily correct. When users immediately login, it shows ‘active sometime ago’ instead of recording when they were ‘most recently active’.
Solved my issue… had to start from a totally fresh install, but went a bit more step-by-step with the install to ensure that the forums were working.
Terribly inconvenient, have to work on restoring a bunch of things now… but overall, I would say it is worth it for the group forum function.

I guess I shall slowly master BuddyPress. I’m thinking the issue that I was having was due to my changing of the root file names in the process of making it live in place of an older site.
My recommendation is to always have lots of backed-up information just in case you need to start fresh with new software! :p
Thanks all for your suggestions.
Now onto the next task… custom admin bars that do not show posting options immediately.
@davidveldt -This sounds like something that I have yet to do… what exactly should I be changing these things to? This is where my ‘newbie’ status’ comes into play. I have deactivated all plugins and went to the default theme, and still recieved the ‘forum not setup’ error again for the groups…
I am thinking that this may be exactly what I need to update, but don’t know what I should update my wp-config.php file to exactly? (as in my BBDB_NAME, BBDB_USER, BBDB_PASSWORD and BBDB_HOST files).
Your help is damn appreciated with all of this!
Should I be putting my own information or is there something special that goes here?
Thank you all!
I’ve already enabled group forums. I tried it again, and it still didn’t work.
I continued to receive the “Please pick the group forum where you would like to post this topic.” or “This group does not have a forum” messages even after enabling group forums.
Thank you for your suggestion though.
