Close – but 404 on topics and profiles

  • Because I like to be difficult, I have my WordPress installed at ~/siliconholler.com/blog/ and mapped to http://blog.siliconholler.com/. My bbpress installation is in directory ~/siliconholler.com/forum/ and mapped to http://forum.siliconholler.com/

    It mostly works. When I try to look at the default topic http://forum.siliconholler.com/topic/1?replies=1 I get a 404. If I try to view a profile http://forum.siliconholler.com/profile/1 I also get a 404.

    .htaccess currently has Options +MultiViews and I have also tried the code generated by /bb-admin/rewrite-rules.php

    My config.php reads:

    // ** MySQL settings ** //

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’;

    $bb->domain = ‘http://forum.siliconholler.com’;

    $bb->path = ‘/’;

    $bb->name = ‘Reality Me Discussions’;

    $bb->admin_email = ‘validemailaddyhere’;

    $bb->mod_rewrite = true;

    $bb->page_topics = 30;

    $bb->edit_lock = 60;

    $bb->gmt_offset = -5;

    define(‘BBLANG’, ”);

    $bb->akismet_key = ‘properkeyhere’;

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’;

    $bb->wp_home = ‘http://blog.siliconholler.com’;

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘http://blog.siliconholler.com’;

    /* Stop editing */

    define(‘BBPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’ );

    require_once( BBPATH . ‘bb-settings.php’ );

    Any suggestions?

    I’ve got the same problem. I originally was trying to integrate with wp to my directory structure is http://www.chapelhillteam.org/blog/forums.

    I get a 404 with

    “The requested URL /blog/forums/topic/2?replies=1 does not exist.”

    Get the same thing on profiles.

    Hi guys. I seem to be getting the same thing as well.

    Got through the installation all right. Very basic installation. Nothing fancy with subdomains, just straight directory installation to http://brettcrhodes.com/bbPress

    Can log in as “admin” all right.

    Can’t view “admin” user profile which is supposed to be here: http://brettcrhodes.com/bbPress/profile/1

    The /profile/1 directory and file doesn’t exist.

    Can’t view topic at: http://brettcrhodes.com/bbPress/topic/1

    The /topic/1 directory and file don’t exit.

    Can add forums and topics but can view them as subdirectories don’t seem to be getting created.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Thanks.

    You know I took another look at making pretty permanent links and did that again with the .htaccess and all and I’m not getting the “The requested URL /blog/forums/topic/2?replies=1 does not exist.” anymore.

    But now I’m getting bb_get_user needs a numeric ID.

    Solution :

    in includes/template-functions.php

    replace

    switch ( bb_find_filename($_SERVER) ) :

    by

    switch ( bb_find_filename($_SERVER) ) :

    I had the same partial 404-links.

    For me the right htaccess solved the issue.

    It was really the missing Options +MultiViews in the .htaccess (root or bbpress-folder – both works). So maybe You’ve a further look?
