Re: Can’t create forum topics (WP 3.0-RC3-15260, BuddyPress

For my PRIVATE groups, I did the following to enable forums.

First, I reinstalled the forums from the dashboard (superadmin )

Then, from the buddypress nav bar, I followed
My Account > Groups > Admin >

Under the Admin submenu, I selected Group Settings and did the following:

UNchecked the “Enable discussion forum” checkbox
Clicked save
Checked the “Enable discussion forum” box
Clicked save AGAIN

That enabled forums in the private groups.

Hope this helps someone else.

EDITED: Duh! The forums of private groups do not show up in the general forums page! Related, the site posted the phpMyAdmin version of the fix I outlined above:
