BBPress Dashboard disappear (only)

    Hello everybody.

    I’m very happy with BBPress, it really does the job.

    I was going to add other forums in my site and suddenly I saw that the buttons disappear from my main Dashboard (only the bbPress ones: forums, topics, etc)

    What happened? I don’t know when this started happening.

    Something curious is that, between the second and third group (where the bbPress buttons should be), the separation line appears double.

    Thanks so much for your support.

    Funny that. We got the same double-separation and missing menu on our end, but its the latest of our mysterious problems preventing rendering the forums on our website at all. (They used to work fine, but they first stopped showing on the site, then the menu too.) Disabling other plugins doesn’t fix this, apparently.

    Hey thanks for your response.

    Yes I have being trying disabling other plugins and still doesn’t work.

    I don’t know if reinstall it should work. Let’s wait for someone that had this issue to help us.

    Have a great week.

    Well, I managed to get the Dashboard item back up via the first 5 bullet points of
    http://buddypress.org/support/topic/missing-forums-directory/ .

    But we’re still unable to render the actual forums anymore, e.g. from the forums’ “View” links, or /forums/forum. Just blank white pages, maybe the occasional 404. For that, we tried just moving to Mingle forum, but it doesn’t have subcategories (or even let you move forums between categories), so that’s a no-go. So, we’re still interested in fixing bbPress’s other issues…

    Hello everybody.

    Have you had the chance to fix this issue? I still haven’t.

    Any suggestion will be awesome.

    Keep having a good one.

    Thanks for that Lynq.

    THis is the solution:

    “Tools” -> “Forums” -> “Remap existing users to default forum roles”

    If a momentary outage of the forum is acceptable, disabling and then enabling bbPress also seems to fix the problem. I have also created a shortcut to each of the submenu items under Forums/Topic/Replies block. Next time I have this outage, I will try the direct shortcuts and see if that may be a workaround.

    I am curious, does the solution “Remap existing users to default forum roles” change any of the users’ roles to “default” from whatever they might be set at?

    That shortcut access to the missing Forums components did not work. I had do disable and enable bbPress to bring back the forums dashboard block. I hope there is a permanant fix for this soon. I am using Genesis-Platinum child theme.

    Did you try repairing the roles via “Tools” -> “Forums” -> “Remap existing users to default forum roles”?

    That usually works and is a fix that sticks.

    Will it remap the existing roles “properly” and not revert everyone to whatever he default roles is? If latter, then I have to go and change some manually. If I knew how this would work I would have tried it sooner.

    I put a check mark in the box “Automatically give registered visitors the forum role” under Forum User Settings last night. As soon as I clicked Save the Forums/Topics/Replies came back. This morning they are still visible, I am not sure if that was a fix or not.
