bbPress forum BLANK pages
This is url of forum, anyway site isn’t on english.
Ok, that helps.
What happens if you use shortcodes to create a forum index? http://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/
Take the shortcode of: [bbp-forum-index] and add it to a blank page.
Does that create a visible forum index?
If so, then your problem imho is that your theme is hijacking the content area in a way that prevents the new bbPress code from working. As such, the solution would be found most likely in your theme’s page.php or similar, where the default archive pages are created. I don’t have access to the Gonzo theme since it is on ThemeForest ;-(
but you can see in my recent post, we fixed a similar solution for Canvas 5 from WooThemes. http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/non-functional-index-page-when-bbpress-2-1rc4-is-used-with-woothemes-canvas-5-05/
If not, then please share the link to the page where you posted the shortcode so I can see the underlying output.
Oh, God, I it works, when I add shortcode to a blank page.
BTW. Where are you from?
I have one more question. Do I need all the time to add shortcodes?
I mean, if I create 5 new forums, do I need to put this shortcode [bbp-single-forum id=$forum_id]?
How I could know which is id of forums?
the solution is to fix the one page template in your parent theme spit doesn’t hijack the content area and force an excerpt to appear (because there is one with bbPress!)
likely there is a conditional on the page.php template in that theme looking if page is single… See my other post link above.
Im from Chicago, but many of my pals are Serbian
Make sure you don’t have any pre-existing or duplicate pages called “Forums” or that use the same URL slug as your forums / bbpress installation. This will cause problems and BBPress may not display. Delete these posts and MAKE SURE TO EMPTY THE TRASH!
I am having the same problem. Forums appear on my site at this link http://www.enlightentogether.com/forums
But when clicking further there is a blank page. I added a topic which I am able to see when I insert the shortcode in a page so the problem may be the theme? I have heard other users say insert a shortcode into pages so the forum works properly but I am completely clueless on how to do this.
Do you know of any video tutorials relating specifically to inserting shortcodes for forums or articles? I have seen tutorials for inserting shortcodes for all kinds of things but not bbpress.
Easy: create a new page, name it anything and paste the shortcode [bbp-forum-index] on it.
I did the same and it works, but there is a problem: the link to forum “main page” on breadcrumbs still pointing the blank “original” one. I noticed that you’re using Oxygen theme from AlienWP; i’m using Origin (same developer) and have the same problem. Unfortunately they don’t give support for these free themes (except we buy an Membership for 39 bucks…)
