Error message: ”This group does not have a forum setup yet” on most of my groups
I set up about 150 groups a few months ago, and just recently discovered that when I try to post in any of them, I get the following error message: “This group does not have a forum setup yet”.
I’ve done a bunch of debugging, with no real luck.
I’m using BP v1.5.5 with WP v3.4.2. I have a few custom plugins that prevent me from upgrading to BP 1.6.1. I actually tried that, but it caused more errors, so until I can work through that I reinstalled 1.5.5.
Here’s what I’ve tried.
I checked if the “enable discussion forum” checkbox is checked in the problem forums, and it is.
I unchecked, saved, and then rechecked the box both from the admin panel, and from the forum, with no change.
I can see the 150+ groups in the wp_bp_groups table in the database, but only about 30 entries in the wp_bb_forums table.
I tried creating a manual entry in the wp_bb_forums table for one of the groups, with no luck.
I can create a new group at this point, and the forums work. I tried this both from the admin panel, and from the group hierarchy, and both work.
I’d really prefer not to have to re-enter 150 groups, as it’s hours of manual work. But I’m running out of ideas. I’d love to know why a few of the oldest groups work (I assume they were created through the forum, not from the admin panel, someone else entered them) but all the groups I created back in June don’t work.
