    your forum pages are at

    http://nonsoloturisti.it/forums/

    I am not certain what you have at http://nonsoloturisti.it/forum/

    Normally bbpress is administered though the dashboard

    Can you explain further?

    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.
    Thxs!

    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

    OK, try going into

    Dashboard>users>

    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.

    Good luck!

    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 wp_bb_posts (
    post_id bigint(20) NOT NULL auto_increment,
    forum_id int(10) NOT NULL default 1,
    topic_id bigint(20) NOT NULL default 1,
    poster_id int(10) NOT NULL default 0,
    post_text text NOT NULL,
    post_time datetime NOT NULL default ’0000-00-00 00:00:00′,
    poster_ip varchar(15) NOT NULL default ”,
    post_status tinyint(1) NOT NULL default 0,
    post_position bigint(20) NOT NULL default 0,
    PRIMARY KEY (post_id),
    KEY topic_time (topic_id, post_time),
    KEY poster_time (poster_id, post_time),
    KEY post_time (post_time),
    FULLTEXT KEY post_text (post_text)
    ) 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.

    With best regards,
    Sculp
