Can’t create sub-forums (parents)
The info below was submitted to Elementor tech support. They are stumped after several days and iterations and asked me to inquire here if someone had seen something similar and might give us a clue as to what is happening.
Using bbpress, I have subforums, as defined by the parent child relationship. Now it seems that bbpress is refusing to assign ANY parents to any forum. If I take a child forum (any forum) and try to assign it to a new parent, when I update it it ends up with no parent. Every single time.
Oddly (LOL), I do have two older test sites where it is working okay. I am stumped about what is different.
I did about an hour of trying to track this down. My final step was to disable every plugin except for buddypress and bbpress. That caused it to start working properly again. I next added Elementor 2.0.4 and that immediately recreated the problem
I downgraded back to Elementor 1.9.8 and the problem persists. I also tried 1.9.6
elementor (various, 1.9.6, 1.9.8, 2.0.4)
I have a site where the parent function is working properly. It is running all the same versions of plugins listed above. The theme in both cases is identical (Astra 1.2.5). The plugins shown are the ONLY plugins activated on the broken site.
I have left my development site with everything disabled for now, but I need to get back to work within a day on this site.
I have a test site available with the minimal configuration of plugins.
I can share the admin login if needed with someone from the bbpress team if they wish to do some deep digging. You can see the site as a user at
