bbPress Messages works fine… maybe there is something wrong with WAMP.
Try to buy the pro version to get faster support and better features! bbPress Messages Pro
OK, so I have now purchased the Pro version and it still doesn’t work! EVERYTHING ON MY SITE WORKS GREAT EXCEPT THIS MESSAGES? So I don’t see why it should be a problem with Wamp;
Have produced new WP site on Wamp 2.5 on my PC. I have installed bbp-messages 0.2.3.1 and already have bbpress 2.5.8 forum. WordPress 4.6.1 Sport Theme by Theme Canon Win10
THE WHOLE SITE and forum IS WORKING FINE, but When I try to use bbp-messages Lite, it returns the following:
FORBIDDEN: you don’t have permission to access wordpress/members1/http:/localhost/wordpress/members1/ on this server. Apache/2.4.9 (Win64) PHP/5.5.12 Server at localhost Port 80.
Would be very grateful for any advice as I am ready to publish this web – this my first WP site!
I just tried this on my laptop as well – same problem – everything works except bbp-messages!?
I really like the look of this plugin, it is just what I want, so VERY Disappointing!
Hope you can get back to me soon, as this is the only thing stopping me publishing this website.
I can only suggest that you try this on a non-wamp environment – bbpress can have issues with wamp.
WAMP always give me problems…thats why I hate it! Anyway, I suggest you upload the site to your server/hosting and then install bbPress Messages.
Take it easy, I use bbPress Message and works fine. You should upload the website because the developer can’t help you with a site in local host.
Sorry but I just came to discover this thread, I am the author of bbp-messages and there’s now a major update made and it now supports Multisite, the problem that Stewart was reporting.
Also Stewart, the link
wordpress/members1/http:/localhost/wordpress/members1/ pretty much seems messed up, so it’s hard to tell whether it is bbP issue or configuration. I think you did not configure your testing environment quite well and also the bbPress link looks filtered by BuddyPress. Next time I’d suggest you edit your hosts file (
c:\System32\drivers\etc\hosts with admin permissions using notepad) and add a new entry
127.0.0.1 bbpress.dev now
bbpress.dev will act like a normal domain and you wouldn’t run into issues while testing or migrating (all you can do is replace
.tld in the db SQL file). Also add the virtual host for Apache http://stackoverflow.com/a/25203499/3910932
Thank you Arutam and Robin you’re very helpful. I just wanted to point that this thread continues in wp-org plugin support forums https://wordpress.org/support/topic/messages-upgrade/
First ley me say that I am a beginner, this being my first WP site. I can not handle code. Secondly, my site has now been completely rebuilt online in a sub directory – the Wamp version was messed up! The site is at https://newsite.hampsteadbowmen.com. I can give you Admin access if you give me a private email? I will copy this into the other thread.
