Need help with new installation

  • Sir Tie


    My original setup was based on WordPress 3.4.2 and BuddyPress 1.6.1
    I added a BP Group Forum which we realized will not be sufficient and if anything just confusing to members. So I completely deleted the Forums page and added a new page called Group Discussions. I then went to BP settings and pointed forums option to use this page. No problem there.

    Next, I installed bbPress 2.2 / activated / added couple of test forums / check the slug making sure that it worked by going to: and it did.
    Next step was to add a new Forums page which I did. Right after became blank??? Why???

    I then deleted the Forums page and worked again… hmmm…
    At this point I am confused…

    So I ended up adding the page and then adding a shortcode to show the forum and it works, kind of.
    It works for public but if I login as a member (one of my test buddypress members) the page no longer available??? As a logged in member I get “We’re sorry, but we can’t find the page that you’re looking for. Perhaps searching will help.” which makes no sense at all.

    Could someone please help? I have no idea what is causing this mysterious behaviour and how to resolve it.

    now I’m also getting database related errors on different pages that sometimes go away when I refresh the page.
    errors that I see: “An error has occurred while establishing a database connection”
    and something like: “This means that in your wp-config.php file may contain incorrect user name and password….”
