bbPress 2.0 Forums page, within Buddypress…

    Ok, installing BP 1.5, then bbP 2 RC4. Using the default theme and everything’s playing nice!!!

    I’ve made a page, in my page list, called Forums. She’s blank (understandably so).

    So, before I go tearing things apart (I’m very familiar with WP, but am a n00b to BP and bbP) what is the best way to get the standard forums view on my forums page? Is it a matter of adding a few tags into my page.php template?

    Thanks bros!

    Personally, I disabled the Forums functionality within BudddyPress, and let bbpress use the Forums slug. Then I created a blank page called Forums within the plugin “Page Links To” that redirects to the Forums slug.

    Or you could simply use the bbpress shortcodes on the page.

    Oh, forum functionality in BP is disabled. It was disabled from the get go.

    In my Forums setting for bbPress, it’s using the slug “forums.” And when I go to the page directly, I’m not getting a 404, so it is “there,” but nothing from the forums is showing up either.

    Is there a physical WordPress page with the “forums” slug?

    Yessir!

    And, I can navigate directly to a sub-page under forums, and it works… just not the main forums page.

    Either delete the physical WP page, or put the bbp-forum-index short-code in it. bbPress assumes if there is a page already where the slug is, that you are manually overriding it.
