Fatal Error On bbpress With Custom Theme

  • Hi

    I’m running Pretty Young Thing on my site and am in the process of integrating a bbpress forum. I have installed Genesis and Pretty Young Thing into the bbpress directory, however, each time I attempt to view the page, I get the following error message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_template_directory() in /home/triniqek/public_html/bbpress/bb-templates/pretty/functions.php on line 3

    Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

  • Are you installing bbPress 2.x?

    You should install bbPress 2.x – (

    Step 2 – Go to Settings->Permalinks (no need to change the settings, just visiting the page will reset the peralinks)

    Step 3 – Go to and you should see the forum index!

    Thanks! I followed your steps but now I get this error:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /forum/ was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Did you instal bbPress 2.x from the WordPress dashboard?

    If you did, go to Setting -> Permalinks page with will reset your permalinks, then try again and see if that fixes it.
