Re: Page Loading Problem in Internet Explorer
I believe that it was a problem with the way my host (GoDaddy) deals with .htaccess files. I was also having major issues with the same as this: https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/pretty-permalinks-not-working?replies=29#post-5247
All-in-all, I would say stay away from GoDaddy if you are trying to do a integrated wordpress/bbpress site. I have moved the site to another host and all issues have been resolved.
