bbpress forums disappearing after changing permalinks

    Hi,

    I recently installed bbpress on my site and had no issues with it – it worked really well. But I changed my permalinks to %category% for the category base. And suddenly the forums stopped working. I tried copying the short code, and even clicking “view forum” direct from the forum creator, and it keeps coming up as a 404, even though they are clearly visible in the back end.

    When I remove the %category% permalink, it returns to normal, but then of course that stops me being able to permalink my categories (which is something I need to do for this site). I have tried un installing and re installing the plugin, but it doesn’t seem to have any effect. Any idea what might be going on, and how to resolve it?

  • You should be using a string for permalinks category base, NOT %category%

    Eg. If you like, you may enter custom structures for your category and tag URLs here. For example, using stuff as your category base would make your category links like http://example.org/stuff/uncategorised/. If you leave these blank the defaults will be used.
