Support » Plugin: WP Bulletin Board » WPBB Control Panel Does not Appear After Installation

  • Resolved Voodoo128



    After Installing WPBB I noticed that the WPBB Control Panel does not show up on my side admin bar. I don’t have any way of creating any forums etc. I tried removing and re-installing the plug-in to no avail. Any suggestions? I know the forum plugin is working because when I type in my url, it prompted me to create a category. I do that but then I can’t do anything under that forum I just created. It’s not clickable etc.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Yes sorry about that. Happens when another plugin is using the same position in the menu as WPBB. If you don’t know how to do this or need help please feel free to email me an admin login and I’ll be happy to do it for you. ( or skype codebycarter).

    Please open wp-bulletin-board/wp-bb.php at line 435 and find:

    add_menu_page('WPBB Overview', 'WPBB', 'manage_options', 'wpbb_admin', 'wpbb_admin_display', '', 27.7);

    Change to:

    add_menu_page('WPBB Overview', 'WPBB', 'manage_options', 'wpbb_admin', 'wpbb_admin_display', '', '27.7');

    If that doesn’t work, try a different number until it appears in the menu. For example:

    add_menu_page('WPBB Overview', 'WPBB', 'manage_options', 'wpbb_admin', 'wpbb_admin_display', '', 28);




    I tried your suggestion but I keep getting a

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-bulletin-board/wp-bb.php on line 565

    I found out that even if I don’t make a change to the file and simply click save I get the same error.
