#3628 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Forums do not install properly

On a brand new install of wordpress, no other plugins, using the latest buddypress (as found from searching plugins in the wordpress install) the forums fail to be installed properly.

When attempting to install the site wide forums everything appears normal until visiting the front end, no forums link is added to menu. When trying to directly access forums it redirects to home page.

If the page it is linked to (forums) is deleted however, the user can directly visit the forums, but the back end throws up the error that there is no page for forums.

Also, in the forum setup page in buddy press, the button still indicates I can install site wide forums, but when clicked it tells me the forums are already installed.

I have reproduced this twice now, once on an install with custom theme, once on fresh install using default buddy press theme
