Incorrect Topic Opening in Group Forum Topics

  • lolataylor1


    WordPress 5.8
    BuddyPress 9.0.0
    bbPress 2.6.6 (paid member site, so link won’t help much)

    I recently installed bbPress and BuddyPress on my existing paid membership website. The forums and groups are part of the membership and not viewable by the public. I created forums and topics for each group; however, when I try to open a topic in the group’s forum, it will display the first topic, regardless of the URL.

    For example, if I am on my group’s forum page ( I see two forum topics: Beta Readers and General Discussion. When I select Beta Readers (, it displays as expected. However, when I click the second topic for General Discussion, the URL is correct (, but it displays the Beta Reader information instead.

    I deactivated BuddyPress and the bbPress forums work as intended. The issue is isolated to how they display in the BuddyPress groups. Any ideas why this is happening and how I can fix it?

    I think I found the issue. I believe my theme is causing the problem. I’m using Astra 3.6.5. When I entered troubleshooting and used Twenty Twenty with bbPress and BuddyPress, the group forum topics are opening as expected. I also discovered that the WP Admin Dashboard>Appearance>Customize is broken, too. There is some compatibility issue with the latest BuddyPress with the Astra theme.

    I’ve opened a ticket with Astra, but wanted to put my discovery here in case anyone else has a similar issue.
