New to bbpress and having issues with forums

    Hi

    Having never used bbpress before and being relatively new to wordpress, I’m struggling to get the forums on my site up and running.

    Having spent 3 hours today just looking for the ‘forums’ tab, I eventually worked out that the reason I couldn’t find it was because in the latest version of buddypress (or bbpress?) there is no ‘forums’ tab – it is named ‘Groups’ instead! It seems the documentation on here is outdated and this has caused me no end of agro today aggggh!

    Now I finally worked that out, and the forums option magically somehow appeared in my individual ‘groups’, I’m now unable to make a post in any groups, even when logged in as a keymaster!

    Can anyone help me with this? I don’t even know where to find up to date documentation for this plugin now, everything I’ve read is outdated and has confused me. Can anyone point me in the direction of a place to find documentation for bbpress 2.5.1, when running with buddypress 1.8.1 on wordpress 3.7.1? Or just help me to get these forums useable!

    Also, is there a way to allow forum users to add photos to their posts?

    Thanks
