So I have been running bbpress for the past month now. Today I had some free time and decided to try and make it look more appealing. So I searched for wordpress bbpress plugins and suffusion bbpress pack come up. I installed, activated, and went to its settings. So in the settings was the following:
(RE)BUILD BBPRESS FILES
If you are starting out afresh with bbPress on Suffusion or Suffusion on bbPress, this is the first thing you should do. Since the default bbPress HTML markup is different from Suffusion’s markup, this step will help (re)create your templates. You should be using a child theme of Suffusion before you start using this theme. Otherwise if you update Suffusion from the WP themes repository you will lose all the bbPress-specific files.
Please note that all your template files will be written to /home4/kingdox1/public_html/demigodlegion/wp-content/themes/arcade-basic.
So I clicked “rebuild bbpress files” and looked at the forum to see the changes. Once I looked at the forum I noticed that all it did was expand the forum layout horizontally and removed the (right) sidebar. I need the sidebar so removed the suffusion bbpress pack plug in and now there is no forum whatsoever. If I re install the suffusion plugin, the forum reappears.
I tried doing a full restore through my hosting company to no avail. I also uninstalled bbpress and reinstalled... still no luck.
