Forum page not working

    Everything seems to be working OK with my install, except the Forum page. Every tutorial I’ve followed says that the forums I’ve created should automatically be listed on the forums page.

    They are not. The forum page is a regular page, but does not list the forums I have created.

    The page title is the same as the forum slug in “Forum Settings.”

    I’ve tried deleting old pages and creating new ones. I did a clean install of bbPress and Buddypress. Nothing seems to work.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    bbPress 2.3.2
    BuddyPress 1.8
    WordPress 3.5.2
    Responsive LabZip theme

    @marketmynovel which forum tutorial did you read so far? Have you checked out https://codex.buddypress.org/user/setting-up-a-new-installation/installing-group-and-sitewide-forums/ ? After creating a new Page for Forums, did you add the shortcode https://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/ ?

    Thanks for the response!

    I did use the shortcode from the bbPress codex, but I did not use the codex instructions for the installs. I used a few videos – one from my theme creator (which ended up being out of date) and some I found on YouTube. I’m a visual person, so I tend to go with video first.

    Question:
    Could there be an issue using a responsive design with a static front page instead of the WordPress default page?

    I’ll go over the bbPress codex link above this afternoon, do a clean install and see if that makes a difference.

    Appreciate it!

    None that I could imagine.
