    Check other plugins

    Check that no other plugins are affecting this.

    Turn off all other plugins, and see if that fixes the problem. If the problem is resolved, add back one at a time to see which is causing the conflict.

    Check themes

    If plugins are not the cause, then it may be a theme issue. Switch to a default theme, such as twentytwelve, and test.



    Hi Robin!

    Thanks a lot for the reply. You are right is a problem with the theme that apparently is not compatible with bbPress, is there a way to fix this???

    Ok, I see you also posted on their support page, which was going to be my next suggestion.

    Since your code is on a local server, I obviously can’t take a look.

    So now let’s try.

    Create a file called bbpress.php in your theme folder

    Add the following code to the bbpress.php file

     * bbPress wrapper template.
    get_header(); ?>
    <?php while( have_posts() ): the_post(); ?>
    	<?php the_content(); ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    If you need a sidebar add

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    before the footer line

    See whether that works for you.




    Thanks for the quick answer an taking the time.

    I tried adding bbpress.php on the theme folder, but still dont work. Adding the file makes no change

    Try making a copy of your page.php (or page-no-sidebar.php depending on your preference) simplecorp template file and name it bbpress.php

    Also keep an eye on this thread at Site5



    I made the copy and make a try, but it doesnt work.

    What I did is copy exactly the content of page.php, and name it bbpress.php, should I add anything else to the bbpress.php file?? I also keep in the theme folder page.php
