so has it stopped working in front end, or just disappeared from back end or both?
I’ve just upgraded my test site to wordpress 5.8 and all looks ok.
it could be a theme or plugin issue
As a test switch to a default theme such as twentytwenty, and see if this fixes.
If that doesn’t work, also deactivate all plugins apart from bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.
If you cannot do this to your site (say because it is live) then use the ‘troubleshooting’ features of this plugin to let you test without affecting other users
Health Check & Troubleshooting
Then come back
it is both end that have stopped, when i go to a forum i get a 404 error, then when i go into admin, the side buttons have gone and there is no more forum options in the settings.
I have tried troubleshooting and nothing has changed.
dashboard>settings>permalinks and just click save – this resets the permalinks and may help
Some good news.
doing this has brought back the forums on user side (frontend), but the admin side there is no tabs for anything, i cant see the forums or control them.
ok, so what is the bbpress role for the user ID you are using to examine the dashboard?
I am unable to see anything to do with BBpress as it is not visible as the forum tab has also gone, but I am in as the original Administrator.
I have just see that I am now down as participant and not key master, But it doesnt let me change it.
only a keymaster can add another keymaster.
If there are no keymasters left, then add this plugin
bbp style pack
once activated go to
dashboard>settings>bbp style pack>bug fixes
and you will see that you can add yourself back as a keymaster
you can then dcativate and delete this plugin, or maybe use the features on your site
Amazing it all works great now. Dont know how the BBpress crashed but Thank you for your help!
great – glad you are fixed 🙂
