bbpress breaks my permalinks

  • marizka


    I have a WordPress (v 3.4.1) site with a custom theme. I have my permalinks set to %postname% and my navigation is hard coded with relative urls (<a href="about">About</a>)

    I have installed bbpress (v 2.0.3) and everything works great until I try to leave the forum page. From the forum page, when I click on any link in the nav, it adds /forum to all my urls resulting in a 404 error.

    In the bbpress settings I have unchecked the “Prefix your forum area with the Forum Base slug (Recommended)” option, and that did not fix it.

    Any help would be appreciated as this site is due to a client by the end of today and I don’t want to use a different Forum plugin.

    I’m having similar problems and still haven’t found the root cause. What I’m using in the mean time is redirect plugin:


    I had trouble with forum linking when installed on a Multi-Site Network until I set the slug for the forum.

    The permalink created was wrong as it was not inserting any slug to identify the forum.
