    I just installed bbpress and I have the slug set to forums, but when I go to site.com/forums it brings up an item I have in a portfolio which is part of the theme. No matter what I make the slug it brings up the same item in the portfolio. If I delete that item from the portfolio, it brings up the next item in the portfolio.

    Any ideas?

    could be many things

    lets start by eliminating plugin and theme

    It could be a theme or plugin issue

    Plugins

    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.

    Themes

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

    It was the theme that is causing the issue. It works when I select another theme.

    your theme is a paid one, so I can’t just download and have a quick look.

    Excellent, I think I can just write a new theme page to fix the issue. This is what I was looking for, thanks!
