bbPress Forum Wide Search doesn’t work; just loads site homepage

  • jcermak


    Did a new install of bbPress and when using the built in Forum Wide Search, when a user clicks “Search” it just brings our WordPress site’s homepage.

    I read on a forum that having spaces in the Single Forum Slug for Search under settings can cause this issue, but the slug used is just the word “search” so that’s not the issue.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    I’m fairly new to WordPress so I’m not sure how to troubleshoot the search. Can anyone help?

    Wordpress 4.9.1
    bbPress 2.5.14-6684

    ok, it’s maybe a clash of terms being used on your site – ie something else is using search

    As a test change the slug to say ‘find’ and see if it works then.#

    We can then narrow down the issue



    I have the same issue. My slug is “temp”. The search redirects page to (when searching for Welcome). The page is blank however.
