Getting A Simple Forum and BuddyPress Integrated? Can’t Create A Post.
Very new to BuddyPress and have just set up my site using it. I am now trying to add functionality to get something similar to what I had on the NING platform.
I have spent some time tonight trying to figure out this forum system for BP. I have installed bbPress, but I don’t think this is what I was looking for (or I didn’t install it right?). I noticed when I tested this out by creating a group and then attempting to create a forum post, when I click to create the post the entire post disappears and nothing gets posted. It’s very strange! I basically am not able to create any forum posts.
I really just want a forum with categories. It seems that in the native BP settings you have to create a Group first, which then gets its own forum? Is this correct?
I think this will be super confusing for my community members. Most are not super web/tech savvy. I’d like to present something much simpler for them.
So I am wondering how can I create something more simple as far as forums go where they click the Forum link and then there are categories listed such as:
And they click on a link that goes to that Forum category and they can post an entry there? I also need it so that they can subscribe to be notified when someone posts a reply to a discussion they started or have chosen to follow.
Or, how do I get something similar to what BuddyPress.org has? I notice that at the bottom of the forum topic listing, it says: “You will auto join this group when you start a new topic.” How did u get that functionality?
Any solutions for this?
