bbPress is tested with wordpress default themes. It maybe a conflict – you need to check plugins and themes
It could be a theme or plugin issue
Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.
If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentyfifteen, and see if this fixes.
Then come back
1. Disable all plug-ins
– I have only one bbpress plugin installed.
2. Change the theme to ‘Twenty Fifteen’
3. Clicking on the ‘bbs2> Forums’ link will result in an http 500 error
Bbs2 page: http://korear.net/?page_id=11
I have the exact same problem. I’ve struggled to find anyone else in my situation. It’s a clean installation of wordpress, and bbpress is the only plugin installed, NOTHING else is done at all. I’ve tried different themes (like twentyfifteen), but that doesn’t seem to be the troublemaker. I’m allowed to make a new forum, but the “all forums” page results in this error. I’m running it on a localhost mamp server.
click ‘test_forum2’, http 500 error
It worked nicely on my windows desktop computer, but I really wanna work on my mac laptop. I did exactly the same things on both installs, but the forums page wont show up on my mac.
bbpress hates local installations
add_filter( ‘bbp_verify_nonce_request_url’, ‘my_bbp_verify_nonce_request_url’, 999, 1 );
function my_bbp_verify_nonce_request_url( $requested_url )
return ‘http://localhost:8888’ . $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’];
@narnal I’d suggest you turn the debugger on, and/or refer to your host service provider.
