Unable to Post New Topics to Forum

  • I do the thing to add a new topic to a forum, inclusive of choosing the group’s forum to post it to, but when I click ‘Post Topic,’ the fields reset and I get an error bar saying I need to choose a group.

    Running BP 1.5 on WP 3.2.1. Server is running PHP V5.2.17.

    Please answer some troubleshooting questions posted

    do you have group forums installed? Yes
    did you also install the new sitewide forums? Yes
    single WP or WP multisite? — Single
    is BP installed in main site or subsite (if MS)? Not Multisite
    etc — Not sure what else I can give you but what I’ve posted and added in this reply.

    Also, in bbpress in the the ‘Forums’ settings, there’s some red text beside Archive Slugs – Forums base settings box: Possible BuddyPress conflict: Forums page

    @mercime – Sorry for the bump, but I tried to provide all of the information requested without any love…



    Sure, there’s bound to be some conflict with two kinds of bbPress forums installed – Group-centric and Sitewide. Could be a bug.
    – First thing, are both using the “forums” slug? You’d need to change the slug of either the Group one or the Sitewide one.
    – Second, deactivate the sitewide forum by deactivating bbPress 2.0 plugin and change to bp-default theme. See if you can post topic to the correct group forum.
