Forum problems (still)
I got frustrated trying to get forums to work with 1.0.1 – never could. Followed all instructions in the Help topic numerous times. Every time I tried to post I would get a red bar error – “could not be posted.” So I waited for 1.2.
I did a secondary install of 1.2 and all looked well with dummy data – forums and posting worked fine.
Took the plunge and upgraded everything, activated the built in forums instead of my secondary bbpress install – had to manually upload bb-config, which was fine – but still when I try to create a post with my 1.0.1-upgraded to 1.2 install, I get the error: “There was an error when creating the topic”
Very frustrating. Is there anything left over in my previous (nearly-working) integration that will be messing up this installation? Does the 1.0.1 – 1.2 upgrade purge the unneeded element from the previous install? I didn’t explicitly remove anything.
Any ideas would be appreciated. I am trying to sort out persistent avatar issues as well, seemingly related to “ownership” of folders after a server move, but these forum issues were there before I moved the site (still on 1.0.1)
