Installed, but can’t view posts

    Hello,

    It looks like I’ve successfully installed BBpress, but when visitors (or admin) click on a forum post from internet explorer, the page hangs and times out. The post is never displayed. The same thing happens when trying to create a new post.

    Is there some firewall issue with my host? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    What are your $bb->domain and $bb->path settings?

    I’m having the same problem.

    Here are my details:

    $bb->domain = ‘http://jessanastasia.com’;

    $bb->path = ‘/forums/’;

    Perhaps you have not yet set up Pretty permalinks.

    jessind,

    I tried your site in firefox and http://jessanastasia.com/forums/topic/1 gave a 404 not found reply (which was then caught by your WordPress for some reason and I ended up at your blog).

    Which method did you use to set up permalinks? MultiViews or the rewrite stuff? Did you put the .htaccess file in the forums directory?

    yea. i put the .htaccess file in the forums directory. before i couldn’t get it to work with or without permalinks but now it magically works without. so everything seems to be good. i just don’t know why the permalinks wouldn’t work.

    I guess I could have missed it, but I didn’t see anything talking about .htaccess during the basic install process. This looks like yet another item for the 1, 2, 3 Install List. I sooo appreciate the desire to keep this SIMPLE, SIMPLE, SIMPLE but if a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 process would actually cover everything, that would be effectively more simple than a three-stepper that leaves out just enough to throw folks a tiny bit off track. Just my 2 cents.

    Solution :

    in includes/template-functions.php

    replace

    switch ( bb_find_filename($_SERVER) ) :

    by

    switch ( bb_find_filename($_SERVER) ) :
