BB Plugin – Link and theme issues

    I am posting here some info from the plug in topic per the request.

    First, you can not have group forums activated and use this at the same time. Atleast I couldn’t. The base for the group forums is FORUMS. Note the S so if you try and use Forums for your page and/or forum base you are not going to get the BBP forum.

    I had to turn the global group forum directory off and use forum as the base in order to get the links pasted the forum index page to work. Otherwise all links redirected to my homepage.

    Currently though I have this structure —

    index page – using shortcode

    http://crosseyedgaming.com/forum/

    the other links have a double forum/forum

    http://crosseyedgaming.com/forum/forum/welcome-committee/

    If I remove the forum slug it changes those links to

    http://crosseyedgaming.com/forum//welcome-committee/

    Outside that things seem to be working ok. Probably need to clean up the look a little.

    How do I get the widgets working on these pages so I can list recent posts and so on?

    One last question, is using the alternated page template and theme support a better option?

    I appreciate the help.

    1. Change the forums base to something else. I am running it perfectly fine over at testbp.org by changing the base to ‘discussion’

    2. The reason for the double ‘forum’ is because your root slug is ‘forum’ and the forum slug is ‘forum’ and you’re choosing to include the root slug.

    3. Don’t remove the forum slug. :)

    Widgets should work anywhere you have a widgetable area. Since your theme is mostly custom, you’ll want to research how widgets work, insert your sidebar, etc…
