Buddypress, how to install bbpress (doesn’t work)

  • So, I’m using the buddypress plugin, with a fully compatible theme.
    However when I use the option to install bbpress and automaticall integrate it in buddypress, nothing happens, i does create the config file, but when I go to any of the folders in the bbpress folder no installation or forum appears.
    When I download it manually though I can get the installer to function well, however it asks me if I want to integrate with wordpress, buddypress already is integrated to wordpress so I don’t want to mess up.

    Please don’t bump your posts more than once every 24 hours.

    To be clear, did you follow the steps from this page https://codex.buddypress.org/buddypress-site-administration/buddypress-forum/ , at the bottom where it reads Process for installing bbPress included with BuddyPress?
    1) Dashboard > BuddyPress > Forum Setup
    2) Setup a new installation, etc
    3) Then go to a group > Admin > Enable group forums

    You should then see a Forum tab in the group. The bbPress software comes autoinstalled when you download BuddyPress. There is no need to download anything else.

    I’m sorry, although my suffusion theme was buddypress compatible after a few tricks, I didn’t get a forum tab to appear.
    Once I enabled the buddypress default theme I got the forum thing working, thanks.
    One question though, I want to try out a few other forums, is there a way to delete/disable the bbpress forum for the time being, so that it doesn’t cause issues.
    Like Buddypress links that don’t work etc.

    Sure, you can disable the forums by going to Dashboard > BuddyPress > Component Setup and switching the Forums component to Disabled.

    Ugh, I’m blind, sorry really stupid question.
    I’m sorry, and thanks for your help!

    HI @naike,
    Is your bbpress still working?

    have you upgraded to WP 3.1.3 and BP 1.2.8 ?

    Thanks
