Categories returning 404s

    @theadammcintyre

    I’ve been trying to figure this out for several days, but can’t get my head around the error.

    Every time I create child forums or categories within a forum, they return 404 errors when clicked on, evern though they’ll display how many topics are inside said forum.

    When I convert existing forums to categories, the topics inside don’t show but the page does load.

    I’ve searched the BBPress forums for an answer and see several other threads from people having issues with 404s, but no real answers.

    Ive gone through the tools > forums and reset everything.

    I’m using standard forum permalink settings and nothing is working.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks 🙂

    ok lets start by seeing if this is a plugin or theme issue

    Plugins

    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.

    Themes

    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, switch to a default theme such as twentytwelve, and see if this fixes.

    When I convert existing forums to categories, the topics inside don’t show but the page does load.

    There is something weird here, I haven’t quite found all the issues relating to this but I am sure it is part of what I am looking at in https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2647

    Could you please give me specific details on what you are doing:

    e.g.

    – Create a new forum via the ‘new forum’ in the backend
    – Change the above new forum type to ‘category’ and update
    – Visit http://example.com/forums/myforums
    – Click this
    – Click that

    Result:

    When I go here, I expect the forum to something something

    Expected result:

    The forum should do this and that and not do xyz or 123

    The problem is specific to child categories and child forums.

    This works:
    mysite.com/forums
    mysite.com/forum/general

    This does not work (returns 404)
    mysite.com/forum/general/child-forum/
    mysite.com/forum/general/child-category/

    I’m not using anything that would interfere with how the permalinks should work.

    Converting parent forums to a child forum returns a 404, but turning a parent forum into a child category only removes the threads.

    I’ll show you what I’m trying to do..

    My forums right now:

    mysite.com/forums/
    mysite.com/forum/discussion
    mysite.com/forum/resources
    mysite.com/forum/support

    Here’s what I am trying to achieve

    mysite.com/forums/
    mysite.com/forum/discussion
    mysite.com/forum/discussion/resources (category)
    mysite.com/forum/discussion/support (category)

    Thanks,
    Adam

    I’m sorry but a bunch of links does not explain how I need to reproduce the issue, unless I can reproduce the issue I cannot fix the issue.

    So, again, please as per my the example in my previous post, detail the exact steps so I can reproduce the issue.

    If you read the links you’ll see specifically what doesn’t work.

    Here’s the exact steps of how to reproduce the issues:

    1. Create new forum via ‘new forum’ back end
    2. Set forum as child forum
    3. Child Forum appears in my forums
    4. Click on child forum
    5. 404
