No more Forums tab inside the group since 3.0

  • m1000



    I updated BP to 3.0 and I see there is no forums tab inside the groups. Is bbpress insidfe the groups not supported anymore?

  • Hello,

    Starting from BuddyPress 3.0 we have removed support for the deprecated and unsupported bbPress 1.x that was bundled with BuddyPress.

    As written in our release post:

    Most notably, the Legacy Forums component has been removed after 9 years of service. If your site was using Legacy Forums, you need to migrate to the bbPress plugin.

    And here is our general bbPress 2.x forum installation guide:

    Installing Group and Sitewide Forums

    So, @m1000, please follow the migration guide and move everything forum-related to bbPress 2.x, which is faster and overall works better.



    But I have bbpress 2.5.14 on the website, tested it under default WP themes.



    Looks like there was removed groups forum activation from create.php

    				<?php if ( bp_is_active( 'forums' ) ) : ?>
    					<h4><?php _e( 'Group Forums', 'buddypress' ); ?></h4>
    					<?php if ( bp_forums_is_installed_correctly() ) : ?>
    						<p><?php _e( 'Should this group have a forum?', 'buddypress' ); ?></p>
    						<div class="checkbox">
    							<label for="group-show-forum"><input type="checkbox" name="group-show-forum" id="group-show-forum" value="1"<?php checked( bp_get_new_group_enable_forum(), true, true ); ?> /> <?php _e( 'Enable discussion forum', 'buddypress' ); ?></label>
    					<?php elseif ( is_super_admin() ) : ?>
    						<p><?php printf( __( '<strong>Attention Site Admin:</strong> Group forums require the <a href="%s">correct setup and configuration</a> of a bbPress installation.', 'buddypress' ), bp_core_do_network_admin() ? network_admin_url( 'settings.php?page=bb-forums-setup' ) :  admin_url( 'admin.php?page=bb-forums-setup' ) ); ?></p>
    					<?php endif; ?>
    				<?php endif; ?>

    That code controls a setting. It has nothing to do with the actual navigation bar. I am confused as to what exactly you are reporting is wrong.



    Yes, I know. I have enabled buddypress legacy and when I go to group manage -> forum and I try to enable forum it stays inactive – I also selected child forum for the group.
    I have enabled group forums –

    We don’t have enough information to figure out what the cause might be yet, I think we will need to try to reproduce the problem, but it doesn’t seem to be unique to your site, so I’ve created a bug report at — please keep an eye on that for updates.
