forum/forum/ issue after moving to sub folder

  • alex3410


    Hi guys,

    I am hoping you can point me in the right direction with this as i am rather stuck.

    essentially i installed BBPress on a WP site over a year ago, for several reasons i now need to move it to its own WP install so i moved it into a sub folder called ‘forum’ hoping to keep the links working

    the end result however is all of the links to forums now have: /forum/forum/ on them, once from the fact the WP install is in a sub folder called forum, the next from bbpress

    how do i stop bbpress from adding the extra forum into the URL?

    the Forum Prefix in the option does not do this (you would have thought it would do given the name)

    any ideas?

    I have a similar problem and here is what I have found so far:
    Go to Setting/Forums>Forums Settings: scroll down to:
    Forum Root Slug: (THE PROBLEM AREA!!!) Below that is>
    Forum Root (which says) “Forums”
    Also below that setting under “Forum Prefix it has a check box that is automatically checked and says: Prefix all forum content with the Forum Root slug

    I have not attempted to change settings yet as the setting is “recommended”.
    I you find out more, I would appreciate a reply.
