"Breadcrumb" trail Forums link not working

  • Very excited to try out the plugin… installation went great!

    Some weirdness though, in the “breadcrumb” trail that is created:

    Forums > forumname

    The “Forums” link leads to a page that isn’t there… /forums

    I am assuming this is supposed to be the forum “home” page, but I’ve tried the install twice to no avail.

    Any advice on this?

  • I’ve noticed the same issue.

    Of course by creating a page in WP called “forums” it now exists, and perhaps this is the intended use case.

    @zeldain – Are you using a shortcode to output your forum root? If so, there’s no way for bbPress to know where the root of your forums actually are when you’re *not* viewing that specific page.

    Check Admin > Settings > Forums for a better understanding on how breadcrumbs work. You are able to make adjustments to bbPress slugs similar to making changes to your WordPress category and tag slugs, to help you configure your forums the way you need them.

    Just fixed a bug in the breadcrumb root that is the “root” cause of what you are experiencing. This will be fixed in Beta 2. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. :)

    Hi John, firstly, thanks so much for the work you’re doing. I think BBPress is a great product.

    I’ve just installed Beta 3 and am getting the Forum breadcrumb link not working issue. I created a Forums page on our site and added the [bbp-forum-index] shortcode to the page. The page address is “?page_id=155″.

    For the uninitiated, could you please give a dummies version of what I need to do to get the Forums link pointing back to that page.

    Thanks heaps

    Yes. I think this is what I’m looking for as well. Has anyone figured this out yet?
