bbpress forums disappearing after changing permalinks

  • sremy



    I recently installed bbpress on my site and had no issues with it – it worked really well. But I changed my permalinks to %category% for the category base. And suddenly the forums stopped working. I tried copying the short code, and even clicking “view forum” direct from the forum creator, and it keeps coming up as a 404, even though they are clearly visible in the back end.

    When I remove the %category% permalink, it returns to normal, but then of course that stops me being able to permalink my categories (which is something I need to do for this site). I have tried un installing and re installing the plugin, but it doesn’t seem to have any effect. Any idea what might be going on, and how to resolve it?

  • You should be using a string for permalinks category base, NOT %category%

    Eg. If you like, you may enter custom structures for your category and tag URLs here. For example, using stuff as your category base would make your category links like If you leave these blank the defaults will be used.
