Can not re-enable bbpress forum

    I followed the instructions to activate bbpress forum in groups on this thread: http://buddypress.org/forums/topic/forum-install-some-helping-hints-2/page/5

    At the end I disabled and then tried to re-enable bbpress forum component and it will not enable. After I hit save it is back in the disable state.

    What do I need to do?

    I am using WordPressMU 2.8.2, Buddypress 1.0.3 and bbpress 1.0.1 all fresh installs only one user for admin. I do not have deep integration. I do have cookies working (mostly) between bbpress and wordpress.

    Basically, you need to bang your head against it for a few more hours and figure out what exactly isn’t perfect. Something is out of alignment, and we can’t really tell you what without looking at it for you…

    Alright.

    Let me expand on what is happening as others may run in to it. I basically have one component that stays dissabled. I can turn any number of them on or off but the last one, regardless of which one it is stays disabled. So it is not just related to the forum component it is something else. That ‘else’ I have not determined yet.

    It might just be lack of sleep, but I still don’t understand exactly what you’re saying.

    If the forums aren’t enabled when you go to create a group, then something isn’t installed/configured correctly. I promise you that when all is done correctly, it works perfectly fine.

    I have the same error. I am using the same versions.

    On your dashboard look for buddypress, then go to “components setup” and disable any of the options listed there. Afterthat you are not able to activate that component anymore, if you activate a component and click save, aparently it is saved but no. just click anywhere an click again on components setup and you will see that is not activated. Playing a little bit with this you will realize that at least 1 option will not be actitvated ever.

    i’m now having this error. disabled the bbPress Forums and now when i try to enable then save, it doesn’t enable – it stays disabled.

    Yes that is it exactly. Sorry John I tend to be a little unclear when I describe things but what jverhine and Diossabot said is exactly what I am having. It is like you can only activate 7 of 8 components. They are all on to start with but once you disable one then this happens.

    I disabled the wire component as it is the least needed at this point.

    Same error too. I re-enable it manually, going to the wp-content/plugins/buddypress/pb-forums.php and set 1 on the second line. Now it´s running.

    My problem now is to make the option “forum” appears on the main menu.

    I ran into this problem too.

    I have a temporary fix which will enable you to reenable your components, via the database :

    The record is in table wp_sitemeta and you want the record with meta_key = bp-deactivated-components

    If you make the meta_value field blank all your components will be enabled again. You can edit the value as well just to disable one component, but for simplicity’s sake do that and disable the ones you want again from the admin area.

    Now onto the bigger problem I’m having, integrating the forum with Andy’s new instructions?

    Glad to help. Shame it’s so hackish, but at least it works!
