    (1) Set up in the wp-admin panel
    In the wp-admin panel > BuddyPress > Forums Setup

    (2) Each group now has access to enabling a forum. Go to Group Settings for each group Group > Admin > Edit Settings. There is a checkbox for enabling the forum.

    Did you set up the forums in the wp-admin?
    Did you enable the forum in each group?

    Once enabled then the link for a forum for that particular group becomes available (a page is available) …

    Are you using the bbpress included in BuddyPress?

    This is done through groups; that is, each group has its own forum.

    Because the forums inside buddypress only work for buddypress groups. If you want a global forum, you will have to install bbPress as well.
