Everything gives Error 404 after installing bbpress?

  • I am new to wordpress but had it up and working fine.

    I then installed bbpress per the instructions.

    The installation seemed to go fine, but after trying to create a custom menu for the forums clicking on any link gives me the message:

    “Object not found!

    The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error.

    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

    Error 404″

    I have tried deactivating and uninstalling bbpress but non of my links work any more.

    Can anyone please help a newbie??

    Not sure if it will fix your problem, but try this :

    – go to settings > forums in your wordpress admin panel

    – click “save changes”



    I recommend going to settings > permalinks, changing your permalinks and then changing them back.

    Give that a try.

    Thank you both – changing the permalinks to default and saving fixed my issue.

    I confirmed that when I switch from default back to a day and name structure it breaks again.

    Thanks for your help!
