Page slug cannot match forum slug?
I’ve tried to search the forum, but i couldn’t find a similar question. I’m sorry if this is a double post anyway.
At the moment i’m having a website that runs WordPress with a mingle forum. I’m no longer happy with this forum, so my decision was to make use of bbPress and I’m checking this out now.
The problem i run into, is that i cannot have the same slug for pages, as I use for forums. Let’s say the slug i want to use is called ‘gaming’. The permalink displayed here is http://www.domain.com/forums/forum/gaming/. Now i want to add a page to WordPress about gaming. In this case it will rename the slug to gaming-2, as if the slug was already used by another page.
When i enter the URL http://www.domain.com/gaming/ it does redirect me to http://www.domain.com/forums/forum/gaming/. But I want the WordPress page to show up on the first URL and this specific forum only on the later.
I tried to look some further and found out both WP pages as BBP forums were saved in the ‘wp_posts‘ table. Editing the ‘post_name‘ column here solves my problem, but it would be nice if other administrators, without database permissions could get this done too.
I hope I just miss something obvious here, would be great if someone can help me out!
