Forum index page blank on /forums/ but showing on /forums-2/

  • andrevanberlo2015



    My name is André and I’m running into some issues I hope some of you can solve. Good to know is that links to mentioned pages are at the bottom of this post.

    The Issues
    When I create a bbpress forum, the forum index won’t display on the default page I created ( /forums/ ) but displays a blank page.

    The forum index will display on any other different page like this one /forums-2/

    When I visit a test forum I get a blank page again.

    So I thought I would create a new forum slug in bbpress and page accordingly, named guitar-forums as I was sure no other plugin will have claimed that url. But here the same issues. Nothing works on /guitar-forums/ but the index does show on /guitar-forums-2/

    What I’ve done first

    I have had previously installed asgaros forum but have removed the plugin and removed the asgaros data tables from the database. I also deleted the old forums page and emptied the trash.

    I then did:
    switching to default twenty x theme
    purged all cache incl server side caching
    disabling all other plugins
    reset bbpress

    Default website forum index link:
    Forum index on a different page:
    Forum link:

    spectra one is a block theme.

    This is one of the new FSE themes, so you need a fix to work with bbpress.

    bbp style pack

    once activated, navigate to

    dashboard>settings>bbp style pack, and you should see the first tab called ‘Theme Support’ – if you don’t see this, come back.

    In that tab, select

    Enable Theme Support

    and save

    The forums should then display



    Yes, that’s it! All is working now. Thank you so much for your quick response 🙂

    no problem, glad you are fixed 🙂
