Forum loads blank screen

  • irwinlawinc


    Hi there! I’m trying to set up a bbPress forum on my WordPress staging site (not live yet, still currently hosted on the WordPress server). I installed bbPress version Version 2.6.9, not sure what WordPress version I’m using but I just set up the site in the past two months. I’m using the Twenty Twenty-Three theme.

    I’ve done the initial bbPress setup steps (install and then create a forum and a topic), but I keep getting a blank page when I go to my /forums/ page or or my /jelp/ page (that’s the name of the forum). I’ve deactivated as many plugins as I can, and also cleared my cache, but still getting the same issue. I also went into WP-CONFIG and changed the memory limit to 256M.

    I’ve started a WP DEBUG log, and I see this message: “PHP Deprecated: A deprecated web fonts array structure passed to wp_register_webfonts(). Variations must be grouped and keyed by their font family. in /wordpress/plugins/gutenberg/15.0.1/lib/experimental/class-wp-webfonts.php on line 160” — but I’m not sure what to do about it. I did deactivate Gutenberg just to see if it helps, but still nothing.

    If it’s worth mentioning, I was also trying the ForumWP plugin previously and getting the same blank screen issue. I’ve since deactivated and deleted ForumWP.

    Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you!

    Twenty Twenty-Three theme 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



    Ahhh, thank you, Robin! BBP Style Pack worked perfectly for me. I look forward to trying out its other settings:) Thank you again for your quick response. Cheers!
