my forum does not show up anywhere
If your permalinks are using the ID numbers, it will be at example.com/?post_type=forum
if you are using postname permalinks it will be at example.com/forums
okay your forums are here, but I see you have a little issue going to a topic.
Did you modify any topic slugs in Settings > Forum?
Make sure that any custom slugs you have, have dashes instead of spaces in it.
The url of the youth sports topic should have dashes in it instead of %20.
Thank you. Did not do anything to slugs. What exactly should I do the the slugs in forum settings? What and where is this url that needs dashes? John
If you didn’t change any of the default forum slugs like say for a single topic, then don’t worry about it.
Ummm can you just edit the forum FORUM–Youth Sports, Parents, Gear and more!, tell me the permalink below the title input box is, if it doesn’t have spaces or those weird %20 text, then just update the forum real quick to see if this can fix the url of the topic link.
Go to Settings > Permalinks in the WordPress backend and do the same thing, just hit the save changes button.
And try going to Tools > Forums in the WordPress backend and running these two repair jobs, one at a time.
Recalculate the parent topic for each post
Recalculate the parent forum for each post
Last possible thing you can do is maybe trash and delete your existing topic, youth sports and create a new one to see if this issue persists.
I am lost. Im sorry. Now forum page gone. I think I need to see what these setting should look like. I am a neophyte.
Your forums are here now.
I think you accidentally changed the permalinks structure in Settings > Permalinks. Change it to postname…if you want postname…it does make the urls a little nicer for your forums.
Thank You. I still don,t get how to make it show up on main page?
I still cannot get my forum linked to my main page. I know its there. If you go to my main page there is no trace of it. How do i get this to work? John
How do I get my bbpress forum to connect to my main page? Help, This has been going on for weeks. John
for main page then use the forum shortcode in the main page
or use on of the other shortcodes
Thank You, Where do I put the shortcode or how do I add the shortcode, Many thanks
you put it into the content section of a page or post, so in your case on the homepage
when i click on [bbp-topic-index] I get oops page not found. I am sorry for the silliness, john
It is the shortcode, but I think that you probably need to pay someone to do this – different theme work in different ways and clearly this is not within your current skillset
