    I’m having the same issue. This seems to have happened after upgrading yesterday to WP 4.7.



    I managed to reinstate the forums by deleting and reinstalling plugins in a particular order. It didn’t seem to work if they were installed or updated in a different order even if the end installed-active list was the same. I’m running genesis theme with a child theme and the issue started with upgrading to WP 4.7.
    Here is what I did which solved it, I do not know why (unfortunately):
    1. using ftp, I overwrote bbPress plugin with an old version dated 5/6/2015
    2. in the wp-admin area, under plugins, update the plugin to the current one
    3. in the wp-admin area, search for, find, install and activate the plugin ‘User Role Editor’. then the ‘Forums, Topics, Replies’ appeared in the sidebar of the dashboard
    4. then I could open tools/forums and could see the forum-fixing items here:
    5. magically all seems to work now
