Unable to Setup Forum

  • bhupendra02


    I was able to successfully install the Buddypress plugin and its working fine as well. However, I am unable to setup forum. When I login to my admin dashboard (as Administrator for WP MU), I can see the link “BuddyPress” in the admin area. But when I click on “Forum Set Up” link, I get the follwoing message (pasted below).

    How do I create a new forum from admin area? I can’t see any option to create a forum/thread either when I go to my website and click on “Forum” tab.

    Please help!


    Forums Setup

    bbPress forum integration in BuddyPress has been set up correctly. If you are having problems you can re-install

    NOTE: The forums directory will only work if your bbPress tables are in the same database as your WordPress tables. If you are not using an existing bbPress install you can ignore this message.

    i am having the same problem – it appears to work however when you go to /forums you get a 404 page for the blog…

    You create a forum as part of a group; you can’t get standalone forums. If you had existing groups you need to go to the ‘admin’ page of each group and enable its forum.

    @snapstart, I think that’s a different issue. Would you make a separate post please?
