BBPress in BuddyPress 1.1 will not work

  • muzzamon



    I recently upgraded to buddypress1.1 and everything works fine except the forums. After following all the instructions, going through buddypress in the wpmu admin page I get a message saying the forums installation was successful. Unfortunately when I try to access the forums in buddypress I get a message that wpmu can’t find what I’m looking for.

    All the files and bb-config are in their correct place on the serverside.

    Does anyone have any suggestions how I might resolve this.

    Are you sure you have bbpress uploaded to the specified folder as instruction?



    bbpress is in wpcontent/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums. It was installed with buddypress.

    I’ve tried both the ‘Set up a new bbPress installation’ and ‘Use an existing bbPress installation’ option and both tell me the installation was successful but neither works. The bb-config.php file is in the root directory where it should be.

    Could the problem be with the








    I’m having the same problem. When I click the forums button in BuddyPress, I get an error 404 page. I’ve tried reinstalling. BuddyPress and the BBPress integration.



    um…my install doesn’t have such errors. I only upgraded from 1.0.3 to 1.1 without any problems including forum setup.



    Possible you have a “cookie salad” in your browser…

    First, try to rename the old forum folder (before deleting it…)

    Deactivate and reactivate the forum in the bp settings.

    Be sure you installed the “new” forum without de old bb_config in the new location. Let the system work to make a new one.

    You will see than in the bb_config that the tables of your new forum are called wp_bb_xxx

    These tables are probably empty at the end of such a acrobatic update.

    If it is the case, you have to copy the old bb_tables content into the new wp_bb_tables. Normally your old forum content is now showing in the new install.

    And sorry for my english.



    Thanks, Choufi. And there’s to need to apologize for your English! I’ll try it out.

    I’ll point out one possibly related problem. The BP installation won’t take the default theme. The drop-down menu keeps reverting to the parent themes in P General Settings. If BP can’t find a usable theme, if can’t find the content.
