Trying to make a forum index page.
I am having some problems generating a forum index page.
Once I created my forums I thought that by adding the url http://cyclistzone.com/vozcycling/forums/ to the menu I would be in business. Going to the url shows a featured article and the bbPress sidebar, not a forum index.
Since I did not get a forum index I created a new page and named it Forums. I then pasted the shortcode [bbp-forum-index] into the body of the page and nothing changed. The same results were displayed as if I did not have a page. Almost seems like bbPress ignored my page.
Here is the link to the page…
The next thing I did was to create another page and name it “Test Forum.” I inserted the shortcode and this page displayed a forum index for me.
The problem I am having now is that the slug “test-forum” only relates to this page and not to any of the forum pages because the slug “test-forum” does not exist in the bbPress settings. Those settings use the slug “forums/forum”. If I change the “forums” slug to “test-forum” I end up back to my original problem.
I would like to leave my slugs defaulted to their original values. I just want a forum index page using the bbPress slugs and have a bbPress sidebar.
This is probably simple, but I have not figured it out yet, so I hope someone can shed some light on what I am doing wrong.
