Link to Blogs results in 403 Forbidden error

    Have just installed WordPress 3.4.2 (multisite) and Buddypress 1.6.1. Have updated .htaccess and wp-config.php per the settings provided in Network Settings. However, when I click on http://sitename.com/blogs/, it pulls up a 403 Forbidden message. There is a /blogs/ directory in the WP install, which is obviously causing this issue, but there appears to be a conflict. Do I need to update .htaccess so the Blogs page overrides the /blogs/ directory in the installation?

    Here’s my current .htaccess file:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Create a Page with a name other than “blogs”, and then go to the Settings > BuddyPress menu in wp-admin, then click on the ‘components’ tab, and associate the Blogs component with the new page and save,.

    thank you for the answer, but in the settings menu of buddypress , in tab “components” there are no way to add something . May be you means in tab Pages ?

    But in tab “Pages” the directorie Blogs is missing . I have only Activity Streams, Site Tracking, User Groups ,  Members. And i can not add manually another directories.

    elixcyr: make your own topic please. You might have the same end problem as allenfuller, but the cause could be very different.
