Can't access admin pages
gets you to the login, once logged in you can select dashboard
Sorry, I think I wasn’t clear: the site is a wordpress site and the forum is just an addiction, so the dashboard is the normal wordpress admin pages. What I can’t see is the forum dashboard, which I don’t know how to get to.
Thanks again Robin
Nowadays (unless someone knows different) it is integrated into the WP dashboard
on the main dashboard you’ll see an area called “right now in forums” – if you look at the main dashboard you’ll see a panel called “right now” to then right of the menu’s. Follow this column of panels down and usually at the bottom there’s another panel that says “right now in forums” – you can rearrange these panels to bring this up or indeed to the top.
Apart from this, you have menu items of foums, topics and replies which you can use for admin
Dear All, I’m new here, and this may be a wrong topic.
But I have installed bbpress 2.4.1 and WP version 3.7.1
After installation I can’t open the bb-press settings, because it says:
Je hebt onvoldoende rechten voor toegang van deze pagina. (dutch language)
translation: You don’t have permissions to access this page.
But i’m administrator! What should i do?
Your prompt response will be appreciated.
Precisely what are you doing to get this message
and at what point do you get it?
I have the same problem.
I instaled your plugin ob new wordpress version 3.7.1
this info was show after instaling plugin.
On frond-end website forum looks fine [http://..../forums]
but I’m not abble to open settings. Everything not working. It only shows info, you haven’t access to this – or something simillar.
It’s not working:
Hi Robin, Nothing….
I just installed BBpress.
After installation, open the dashboard -> plugins -> BBpress settings or About (both not working)
Screen display: You don’t have permissions to access this page
Because of this error, I tried to install bbPress Admin Bar Addition 1.7.1.
It’s on the server now, but this program is also giving this same permission error…
suggest you uninstall bbpress and then re-install it.
Come back if that doesn’t work
I did it a few times. And it nothing change. Every time is the same problem.
Same story here, deleted and re-installed program several times. But nothing worked.
Will retry again. Pls give me a few minutes…
1) Files deleted.
2) Searching for BBpress…
3) Received warning: This version of BBpress is not tested yet with this current version of WP (or something like that)
5) On screen:
Plugin bbPress 2.4.1 wordt geïnstalleerd. (will be installed)
Downloaden installatiepakket van https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/bbpress.2.4.1.zip…
Uitpakken van pakket… (unzip file)
De plugin installeren… (install plugin)
Plugin bbPress 2.4.1 is succesvol geïnstalleerd. (Successfully installed)
6) activate plugin
7) Warning: You don’t have permissions to access this page.
8) Back in browser to address -> Dashbord -> Plugin..
9) Plugin is activated now (Somehow).
10) Settingsbutton: “Warning: You don’t have permissions to access this page.”
For the record:
I’m using Firefox 25.0 but receive same error in IE 9.0.22
OK, try going into
and edit the username you’re looking at
at the bottom there should be a setting for level of forum access. For full rights it should be keymaster.
Come back and let us know what it is set at, and if not keymaster change it to that and try again
Issues with trying to manage a forum can sometimes be resolved by going to Tools > Forums > Remap existing users to default forum roles
Tick that and click repair items, this can solve some issues with forum admin. Once you have done that and refreshed you should be able to see forums, topics and replies to the left hand side.
But still not working
OK, when I get a moment I’ll create a new site and try it from a blank canvass.
You should check if the table wp_bb_posts has been created in your database. Otherwise, you should create it manually:
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS
post_idbigint(20) NOT NULL auto_increment,
forum_idint(10) NOT NULL default 1,
topic_idbigint(20) NOT NULL default 1,
poster_idint(10) NOT NULL default 0,
post_texttext NOT NULL,
post_timedatetime NOT NULL default ’0000-00-00 00:00:00′,
poster_ipvarchar(15) NOT NULL default ”,
post_statustinyint(1) NOT NULL default 0,
post_positionbigint(20) NOT NULL default 0,
PRIMARY KEY (
) ENGINE = MYISAM;
Hope it works.
It did for me.
I’ve just created a fresh wordpress site 3.7.1 with theme twentytwelve, and added bbpress 2.4.1 to it.
I am able to create forums, set up users, tools etc. etc.
Thxs for your reply!
Well I think that I finally did find out what happened…
To bad for me I discovered it after deleting my complete website, it’s a conflict with a plugin “Event Calendar / Scheduler” version 3.0.
When it’s disabled, the forum works… When it’s activated, the forum will disappear, and the “warning:” You don’t have permissions to access this page, will show up again…
Well, maybe it’s useful for an other user, unfortunate I have a lot of work to do now…:-(
Thxs to you all anyway.
