#4143 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Forums link redirects to the blog home page

Since this is the appropriate spot for posting repeatable bugs and since i've seen an unanswered post describing the same issue i thought i'd tell you about it via this ticket.

Problem is: After i installed buddypress and made my Suffusion theme compatible by adding a child theme and rebuilding the BP files (using Suffusion BP pack plugin) i encounter this:

Upon clicking on my forums link :

i am redirected to my blog home page

My Buddypress version is 1.5.5

That's it

Thanks in advance for your help

1) Can you reproduce this issue when using the BuddyPress Default theme?
2) Is the Forums component activated at Dashboard > BuddyPress > Components?
3) Have you associated a WordPress page with the Forum component, at Dashboard > BuddyPress > Pages?

Thank you boonebgorges,

i performed your steps 2 and 3. I created an empty page which i called Forums (in the Title) but automatically it was named

Then, in the BP pages settings i chose Forums from the drop down menu (there were two items in the drop down menu called Forums now)

Now, when i click on the Forums link in my self created community menu, i am taken to . Just as it should be. The page shows only the title (Forums) but the page body is still empty .. But i think i might get started now by looking it up in the regular BP community Forums. I just need to figure out how to start my forum and threads.

I think my problem is solved !

Thank you!
