    Guess I can’t edit my post, but I’d like to point out, I’m also using buddypress, and installed bbpress using their Install Sitewide Forums option.

    that’s the way it’s supposed to work by default might be helpful if you post link to your actual site.

    @ubernaut Yeah, of course it’s http://www.zerocomputing.com

    –edit- Figured out how to edit the post :)

    Now to also say, what should I have the forum base slug and other slugs set as… to avoid the forums/forum/whateverforum/ thing, The double forum word thing is rather aggravating and redundant.

    –edit again- What happens is, when I click forums it attempts to load it but responds as if you had just went home. I do have some test forums set up.

    http://zerocomputing.com/forums

    Also, the forum base slug is turned off and set to forum
    and the forum slug is forums.

    I clicked the install sitewide forums button, and nothing more, I installed buddypress first, and then clicked the sitewide forum buttons. Buddypress has a page pointed to Forums, and a page has been made titled forums.

    That’s my problem, is that is what it has been doing since install is redirecting to home page.
    I mean the forums work if you point to one of the test forums…

    I just noticed while that points to it, if you look at the breadcrumbs, the forum link is /forum not /forums

    Also, I just also noticed, that /forum is what the forum base slug is, but even when changed to forums /forums still redirects to the homepage not the forum list.

    @jase-cook If you don’t need group forums and plan only to have sitewide forums, then go to admin Settings > BuddyPress > Components and uncheck “Discussion Forums” https://codex.buddypress.org/user/setting-up-a-new-installation/configure-buddypress-components/#settings-buddypress-components

    As for the sitewide forums, the default slug is forums. If you want to keep that, then leave as is. If you want to change it to something else e.g. “Discussions”, change the forum slug in Settings > Forums, then create a new Page named Discussions. Add bbPress shortcode like [bbp-forum-index] or choose from https://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/

    Is that the problem, that’s keeping the forums from showing at /forums? that’s it, hahah I can’t believe that’s it.

    Hrrm, Though when I click it now, after disabling that, I do not get a list of forums still… ???

    Oh ok, I think I figured it out. I guess I haven’t

    [bbp-forum-index] set to the forums page in the content yields no results p.q
