Try visiting your permalinks page, and saving them. Sometimes they need a refresh after bbPress is installed.
I followed several walthroughs like trying to refresh permalinks and re-saving bbPress settings, with no luck! :'(
OK, so I tried to change the permalinks to “http://squales.high-bridge.fr/%post_name%/” and “http://squales.high-bridge.fr/forums” works by I get a blank page.
I found what’s causing the issue: the bbp-forum-index points to “http://website/forum” (without the s) instead of forums.
This is why the navigation “Home > Forums” link is also broken…
Could anyone tell me how to fix this, please??
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Does anyone know what’s wrong with the shortcode bbp-forum-index pointing to url “forum” instead of “forums”?
Many thanks in advance.
Whenever I have a fairly serious issue like this I follow these three steps first:
– Switch to a default theme like twentyten
– Disable plugins
– Update permalinks
Give that a go then see what happens when you disable each individual plugin.
@Lynq: Thanks for you reply. I tried all those troubleshooting, with no luck :”'(
@bookespana: Thanks. Hopefully, I know what a http404 error is and this does not help much more…
As explained, if you go to http://squales.high-bridge.fr, then click on the link in the navbar “Forums”, you reach the following url: http://squales.high-bridge.fr/forum –> here’s the error as it should be “Forums” (with an S).
Then click on any forum. You’ll see navigation links “Accueil > Forums”.
If you make an onmouseover on the “Forums” link, you’ll see that it points to http://squales.high-bridge.fr/forums.
Finally, if you click, you get a blank page…
Thanks for your replies,
I’ve run into this a few times myself with bbPress 2.0. Sadly I didn’t find the root cause and a proper fix, but I did find a workaround. I change the root slug of the forums to Discussion and then I uncheck “Prefix your forum area with the Forum Base slug (Recommended)”
So my Movies forum is:
http://site.com/forum/Movies and that works. Then I used “Page Links to” and create a menu entry for Forums that links to http://site.com/Discussion as the root of the forums.
