How to turn off group forums?

  • lucianoippolito



    I have bbpress and buddypress installed in my site. I have “user groups” turned off in buddypress and “enable group forums” turned off too in bbpress.

    Despite this I still have a Forums link (which belongs to group furum) in my user activity page menu (not the site-wide activity page), this page is showing links to my activity, my profile, my messages, my friends, my forums and my configuration.

    Why is the forums link showing in this menu if I have group and group forums disabled? It should not exist.

    Besides this, this Forums link is linking to a wrong url, it is linking to and the group forums page I have set for this is in the buddypress pages configuration.

    In fact this page ( shows the group forums info and I think it shouldn’t even exist.

    I am running the latest versions of everything.

    Please tell me how can I fix this problem?

    Thank you,

    Hi, sorry for kicking up this thread. But I have the same issue or related with disabling the group forum and the link above seems to be down.

    I have the latest version of everything. Installed BBPress and BuddyPress. Enabled group forums. I now want to disable group forums. This seems a piece of cake. But when I disable group forums, on the frontpage the link to the group still tries to open [group]/forum. And this provides a notice” page doesn’t exist”.

    It seems the group forum is disabled. How can I change the group link so that it doesn’t open to the forum by default, but (for example) the activity stream of the group?

    Even when I open a new group without a forum, it still tries to open a forum for this group.
