I cannot uninstall the Forums for Groups. When i click uninstall group forums, it just re-initiates itself. What step am I missing?
First, back up your database and the bb-config.php file which was generated in root of your WordPress install when you installed Forums for Groups. Delete bb-config.php file from server.
I installed this cool bbPress add-on plugin and it’s only working in my Sitewide Forums but not in my Group Forums. What’s wrong with my installation?
