”This group does not have a forum setup yet.” -Red error message

    I have tried all of the suggestions in many other threads regarding this issue, but nothing works for me so I am starting a new thread.

    Problem: I have group forums installed, however I am unable to post a topic in any group (I get the red error message stated in the title above). I have “Enable discussion forum” checked under the admin settings for the group, and I have also tried toggling this setting and saving. I have bbPress installed, but have tried disabling the plugin and deleting bb-config.php prior to re-installing group forums. I have checked the settings in bb-config.php to make sure that they match wp-config.php. I have also tried deleting the group and creating a new one.

    FYI:
    1. WordPress version 3.4.1
    2. WordPress is not installed on a subdomain.
    3. Install is in the root directory.
    4. Upgraded from previous version of WordPress.
    5. WordPress was functioning properly prior to installing Buddypress.
    6. Buddypress version 1.5.7
    7. I did not upgrade from a previous version of Buddypress.
    8. I have deactivated all other plugins besides Buddypress but still have the same issue.
    9. I am using my own custom theme, along with BuddyPress Template Pack plugin.
    10. I have not modified the core files.
    11. I have no custom functions in bp-custom.php.
    12. I have bbPress version 2.1.1
    13. My server’s error log is empty.
    14. I use Inmotion hosting.
    15. Apache version 2.2.22, PHP version 5.3.10, MySQL version 5.1.61-log, linux operating system
    16. My website is http://www.balletuni.com

    == I am using my own custom theme, along with BuddyPress Template Pack plugin. ==

    Deactivate BP Template Pack plugin and change to bp-default theme. Is issue resolved? What WP theme were you using?

    Thanks for the reply!

    Tried deactivating BP Template Pack and switched to default BP theme, but still not working. Also created a new group, but still not working. I am using the Eleven40 (Genesis) theme by Studiopress.

    OK, Maybe the reason why group forums aren’t working for you is because Genesis has own premium BP compatibility plugin which you should use with Genesis themes and not BP Template Pack, if I recall well. Have you posted your group forum issues at StudyioPress forums?

    Please describe fully how it is not working when you are using the default BP theme.

    If you cannot get it working using the default Buddypress theme – it’s not a Genesis issue and the plugin will not help.

    When using the default BP theme, I made sure that group forums were installed and that the bb-config.php file had the correct settings. Then I went into a group I already had set up and tried starting a new topic. No go. Then I deleted the group and made a new one, but still no go. I also tried toggling the checkbox, “Enable discussion forum” under the admin settings on the front-end, but still getting the same red error message. In other words, the results are exactly the same regardless of whether I have the default theme installed or not.

    @andrea_r thank you. At the time I answered in my second post, @maryefern ‘s site had the Eleven40 theme and many plugins activated in the site as it is right now, hence reference to Genesis plugin and forums.

    @maryefern

    1. check if the seven xx_bb_xx tables for the group forums were created in your database when you installed Group Forums, as seen here

    2. if the tables are there, then change to bp-default theme and deactivate ALL plugins except BuddyPress to check if issue is resolved.

    @mercime

    It looks like I have all of the bp tables but not any of the bb tables.

    @maryefern so something’s blocking the creation of the bb tables.
    – Delete bb-config.php,
    – change to bp-default theme,
    – deactivate ALL plugins except BuddyPPress,
    – go to BuddyPress > Forums
    – reinstall Group Forums
    – check if bb tables are created in DB

    Ok, I followed your directions and still no bb tables (I am reactivating my theme and plugins now, so that users don’t get disgruntled, but let me know if you need to see it with the default). What do you think are my options now?

    @maryefern strange situation, only encountered this way back BP 1.0. :

    1. Check MySQL version. WP requires MySQL version 5.0 or greater. If you cannot find the version, ask your webhost.

    2. If you have version 5.0 or greater, download zip files of WordPress and BuddyPress, then manually re-upload (via FTP/File Manager) WP and BP files to server in respective directories

    @mercime

    As I indicated above, I have MySQL 5.1.6, so that shouldn’t be an issue, right? Which files should I re-upload exactly? I’m a bit confused as to why that would help exactly… WordPress itself seems to be working fine, but are you thinking my files are corrupted?
