No access to bbPress setup etc in old install

  • POS2012


    I have a WP site , and I installed bbPress and BuddyPress in 2012. It worked great. Then the project got cold, and I now want to start it up again.

    However, to keep WP healthy I have updated it version for version. Now it is 4.6.1, and I have bbPress 2.5.11 and BuddyPress 2.7.2

    I can not get access to bbPress’ settings.

    I can access wp-admin/options-general.php?page=bb-forums-setup and then can click “cofigure bbPress”, but the popup loads a blank page.

    I remember that the first time I set it up I had access to a lot of settings, but now I can not access anything.

    Where do I go from here? What is the best way to get access again?

    Can’t immediately see any issue.

    It could be a theme or plugin issue


    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.


    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentyfifteen, and see if this fixes.

    Then come back
