bbPress needs an .htaccess file. Look in the backend under ‘settings’ > ‘pretty permalink type’ it provides a link to the file you need.
My BBpress first topic reads…
Should I change the custom structure in Buddy, or change the pretty permalink in BBpress? I am lost on this.
I changed both to numeric, but nothing happened. And how does this relate to the htaccess? I don’t see the link…
EDIT…I think I found a thread on this…working on it as we speak. Thanks for the help.
I am all messed up. I have an htaccess in my main Buddy…do I need one also in BBpress? I put one in BBpress with “Options +MultiViews”, but that didn’t work. Then I put in the output from “http://maxbrawn.com/groupforum/bb-admin/rewrite-rules.php” and that didn’t work.
I am lost. When I put in an htacess in the BBpress directory with the output from rewrite rules it can’t find the forum.
Update…now I can find the forum…but it does not post from Buddy to forum…this is a train wreck
Howdy. Your bbpress install is probably in a subdirectory under your document root. Looks like in /groupforum. In that subdir you put your bbpress .htaccess file that bbpress recommends for you. In your document root goes your wpmu .htaccess file that wpmu generates for you. bbpress doesn’t generate one. You have to copy/paste it to an editor and then put it in your bbpress install directory.
Thanks. I tried that with no luck. Still can’t post from Buddy to BB.
