I’m running this locally and installed bbpress, buddypress and a number of bbpress-related plugins. I think this may have been the “bbPress Permalinks with ID” plugin that started the problem but now all my permalinks have gone funny. Here’s what I’ve tried to fix this:
– flushed/changed the permalinks back and forth
– deactivated all plugins
– fresh WordPress install with new site, basic theme and no plugins
Even after trying that third option, with a fresh WordPress install and a new database, my forums no longer worked. The root no longer works, even with a fresh install and no plugins bar the bbpress one.
Is this a localhost thing? All the database entries are there (they fall within the wp_posts table).
Is there a set procedure for installation, changing permalinks and activating the plugins?
Have I done something the wrong way round?
And why is this still happening with a fresh WordPress installation and new database?
Short of uninstalling wamp and reinstalling I’m at a loss.
