BuddyPress1.6 beta – bbpress forums setup

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Same post is here…

    Anyone else confused by the 1.6 beta – forums setup ?

    Using WP 3.4, BP 1.6 beta

    I’m trying to get sitewide forums working.

    In wp-admin: Settings-BuddyPress-Forums

    I see buttons to install: Group Forums and SiteWide Forums.

    I have installed SiteWide Forums and activated it.

    So why does Settings-BuddyPress-Forums still have an install button ?

    And do we really need a separate bbPress plugin for site-wide forums?

    I can create a new forum in wp-admin

    I created a page “…com/forums”

    I’ve assigned it to Discussion Forums in bp-settings – Pages

    If I go to that page, I get this

    “The forums component has not been set up yet.”

    And the Forums link does not show up in the main nav.

    In Settings- Forum -Archive Slugs – Forums base is set to ‘forums’ shows this warning:

    “Possible BuddyPress conflict: Forums page”

    If I set it to ‘forumsbb’ – the warning goes away.

    If I go to Forums in wp-admin and view the forum, it takes me to

    “…com/forumsbb/forum//test-forum/”

    But the Forums link is still not in the main nav.

    And goes to /forums still gives me

    “The forums component has not been set up yet.”

    How to correct those issues ?
