Of course, while I can now administer the forums – creating forums, parenting them and generally setting things up – I find that when I try to post a topic in one of the forums that I, myself, created I’m told, “ERROR: You do not have permission to create new topics.”
And I haven’t yet located the setting I can change for that. I am a site administrator…but I can’t create a topic in the Forum that I set up. Weird.
This is exactly what I came here to ask about…but it appears that these forums aren’t monitored very frequently. I installed bbPress and I have the ‘Forums’ entry added to my WordPress Settings but, just as for Jim, there’s no Boards, Topics or Replies section anywhere in the Dashboard.
