Documentation is out-of-date

  • mirgcire


    Specifically, on the configuring components page

    The problem is that there is no longer a Forum tab in the configuration panel.
    Obviously I am a nube, or I would not be reading the Documentation 😀
    My understanding is that bbPress has replaced the built-in forum feature.

    Wondering when this will be fixed, and, more importantly,
    Where can I find up-to-date documentation if it exists somewhere else.

    Hi bp-help,

    I checked out the page you mentioned.
    Specifically, I want groups to have their own forums.

    So I jumped to the section labeled “Set up Group Forums only”

    Where I found this instruction:

    3. Go to admin dashboard menu Settings > Forums to configure Forum Settings
    BuddyPress -> Enable Group Forums: Check “Allow BuddyPress Groups to have their own forums”

    I looked in menu settings and buddypress settings, but found nothing relating to forums, so either the documentation is incorrect or my installation is messed up.



    Me again ….

    Finally I get it. The Settings > Forum page has a section called “Buddy Press Integration”.

    I was going to Setting > BuddyPress and looking for forums (shesh)



    As of BP 1.7+ bbpress is a seperate install. Try following the below instructions.
    1.) Go to dashboard/settings/buddypress/components and check the box “User Groups”
    2.) Install and activate bbpress.
    3.) In the front-end go to the groups page and click the button “Create a Group”
    4.) Give the group a name and description, click “Create Group and Continue
    5.) Select your privacy options then click “Next Step”
    6.) Under Group Forum click the box “Yes. I want this group to have a forum.” Click “Next Step.”
    7.) Choose avatar for the group, click “Upload” then crop the image. Click “Next Step”
    8.) Select friends to invite. If you dont have any yet just click “Finish.”
    This should do it. Now you have groups with their own forum. Click the Groups nav button then click the group you created. Below the avatar you will see the tabs Home | Forum | Etc.
    Hope this helps! Good luck!
