No Forum button in Admin

    I installed BBPress 2.2.3 on wordpress 3.5 and the admin panel doesn’t display a Forum button for me to add forums and topics. When I go to settings, I can see the Forum settings, but nothing else.

    I’m using a custom theme, but when I reverted back to twentytwelve, it was the same issue.

    Any ideas?

    Looks like the button is not getting loaded upon activation or something. I see a space where it should be. The menu creates 2 separators with nothing in between.

    GOT IT!!!

    Turns out the default forum user role was set to participant upon activation. This was blocking my access to the Forum Admin button. To get around this, I had to create a new WP user account, set it as an administrator, and the change the Forum role of my original username to Moderator. When I logged back in, I can see the Forum button.

    Hope this helps someone else!
