bbPress appears as subdirectory of /blog: need to move

    I followed the instructions for installing the WordPress plugin of bbPress.

    However, doing this invariably puts the live bbPress forum in the following directory:
    /mysite.com/blog/forums

    Clicking the /blog breadcrumb will drop my users into the weblog. Ideally, I’d prefer to have the nesting as follows:
    /mysite.com/classrooms/forums

    But if that’s not possible, having it exist as /mysite.com/forums would also work.

    The most recent thread I could find on this issue was four years ago, and suggested using freestanding bbPress, which won’t work with my membership software (MemberMouse).

    Thanks for any help you can offer on changing my setup.

    Current site is password-secured DEV: WordPress Version 3.6.1, bbPress v.2.4
    Site URL available privately if necessary.

    Just create a page in your menu system called forums wherever you want it, and add the following shortcode
    [bbp-forum-index]

    A simple solution. Thank you so much. That worked beautifully.
