    That is the anticipated behavior. What did you expect?

    I too found this kinda odd, it’s the superfluous /forum/

    I’d imagine it should look like:

    Instead of:

    I imagine there’s a sensible reason behind it, but from a design standpoint it’s just plain wacky, especially considering that there’s an option to hide the /forums/ base slug in bbPress options, but trying to leave the forum slug field empty results in a “forums//forumname” quirk that breaks all the links.

    Guess we’ll have to put up with it.

    mine does this too… the breadcrumbs are:

    Site Home › Forums › Forums › News & Announcements › Topic Title

    when i click on the first forums, it gives me not a list of forums, but a plain, unlinked text list of forums without any links or anything. its bizarre, not sure whats wrong. :s

    It sure looks silly. :(

    That second problem of yours can be fixed by making a page called Forums, and making manual links to your different forums on that exactly how you want them.

    Link me to your site. The breadcrumb is designed to avoid duplicates, so it shouldn’t be happening like that.

    The permalinks are working the way that WordPress is designed to make them work. This is actually the same way that bbPress 1.0 has worked since the very beginning.



    I see the same permalink layout but instead of the forum I get No Results Found

    The page you requested could not be found. Try refining your search, or use the navigation above to locate the post.

    Not sure what I did wrong but none of the forums can be reached. Anyone know what I did wrong?
