    @oraclesoftruth

    I have tried to create a new forum topic after successfully installing BuddyPress but nothing happens. I am using BP 2.0.43, BuddyPress Activity Plus, BuddyPress Group Calendar, and BuddyPress ScholarPress Courseware. I need help with this one.

    Did you create a group first? You have to create a group before you can create a forum.

    Yes. I created a group and now I cannot add new topics. Here is my the link to my community site http://olc.oraclesoftruth.org

    Let me make sure I understand because I went through this myself. You made a group now are you:
    a. trying to post a topic directly to the group
    b. created a forum but can’t post to the forum
    In your initial post you said you created a forum and couldn’t post. Now you say you created a group and can’t post. The forum and the group are two different things. You can’t post directly to a group or a forum. You have to create a group, create a forum FOR that group and then post to that specific forum unless you have enabled some type of plug in so you don’t have to do that.

    Ok, I failed to mention previously that I have created a group. I just created the public group and it allows me to create new topics for it from inside the group, but when I access the forum from the main navigation menu I cannot create a new topic from the Group Forums Directory. This is my real issue. I can create topics from within the group but, I cannot create new topics at the Group Forums Directory level. Also, I am finding that private group topics do not display in the Group Forums Directory.

    @suttilak15 the issue will be reported, thanks. To create a new topic, choose a forum on the right sidebar of this page, then click on “New Topic” link above the list of topics.

    We’ve found and verified this bug, and have a solution. Easiest way to see it is to watch our video at:
    http://labzip.com/the-definitive-guide-to-buddypress-bbpress-configuration/

    In sum: When doing a default BuddyPress / bbPress install, the original bb-config.php file needs to be deleted, and then toggle the “allow group forums” checkbox in the Settings/BuddyPress setup menu, followed finally by going and choosing to “install group forums” (again) in Settings/BuddyPress/Forums menu. All easy to see step by step in this video.

    Cheers!
