I have installed the bbpress plugin, and watched the Academy videos on using bbpress to add forums to a website NUMEROUS times. I have tried to replicate the process, also numerous times, and cannot get my forums to address and display properly.
The symptoms are:
Say my website is abc.com.
I create my forum page as abc.com/forums/.
I add abc.com/forums/ to my menu structure as a custom URL.
When I create forums, the URL generated is abc.com/forums/forum/forum-name.
Why is /forum being appended, and how do I fix this?
I’ve added the forum index shortcode to your forums page so the forum is now coming into the forums page. However you also will need to add our BBPress + Canvas child theme for this to work properly, as BBPress and Canvas don’t work together ‘out of the box’ :)
