Permalinks Without Postname

  • emrphy


    I’m trying to set up bbPress, but I’m not using the postname permalinks (for SEO reasons), which is causing problems. So I tried setting it up using Method 2 in the setup guide, which is basically just setting up a page with [bbp-forum-index] on it. That works, but now none of the non-index forum pages work. Just 404 pages.

    What should the Forum Root Slug and Single Forum Slugs be? I’m thinking that may be the problem. I’ve been messing around with them but haven’t been able to fix them yet. Thanks for any help!

    sorry wp4.0 changed the way default permalinks worked, and this has broken bbpress child forums, which is I suspect your problem.

    There is a trac ticket for this with WordPress.

    The interim fix is to go to pretty permalinks (which you say you don’t want to) or only have forums at the top level. In theory this will be fixed in 4.0.1 whenever that comes out.



    I’m running WP 4.1 and I’m having the same issues. This is an intranet and we are using the p=123 permalink method.

    How can I get bbpress to work without changing our permalink setting?
