Group forum is a one way street - Can't go back to ordinary forum (default slug)

Description

If I repair a converted legacy forum to be associated with its group again, or create a new group forum from scratch, there's no going back.

It's like this:
-- http://example.com/forums/forum/effects
-> http://example.com/groups/effects/forum/
-X http://example.com/forums/forum/effects

Opting out of "yes, I want this group to have a forum" does nothing, the forum is still there. Also, if I want to delete the group, there's no way to avoid deleting the forum along with it, which I'd often like to avoid.

What I'm looking for is a "separate this forum from its group" type of action. While at it, though not strictly related to this defect, you'd probably want a "attack this forum to {select group}" as well.

This is addressed in bbPress 2.2-bleeding as of [BB4555]. Not publicly released yet.

This could probably be achieved by navigating to your WP admin dashboard and clicking on the "Forums" tab. Find your group forum, edit it and under "Forum Attributes" change the parent to "No parent" or to another forum of your choosing.

See if that addresses your problem.

Sounds more like a feature request for bbPress.

I'm going to close this ticket as the issues listed here are more related to bbPress and its support for BuddyPress.

Please post your questions over at bbpress.org/forums.

If it ends up being a BuddyPress problem, feel free to reopen. Thanks!
