Hello,

After installing Redirect2wpForo and updated the order and hierarchy the layout is still not updated to WPForo layout. As per your instruction I do not need to update any setting. So I want to ask what setting needs to change for the layout to be effected

 

Regards

Hi @forumguy247,

wpForo is a forum plugin. I's not a layout for bbPress. If you want to migrate from bbPress to wpForo, first install the wpForo plugin and use the Go2wpForo Migration tool to migrate all forums, topics, posts to wpForo. Then use the Redirect2wpForo plugin to redirect old bbPress topic URLs to new wpForo topic URLs.

The Redirect2wpForo plugin is designed to redirect bbPress topic URLs to wpForo forum topic URLs after the migration is finished. Please open a new support topic if you have further questions related to the migration. This topic is for URL redirection plugin. Here we don't discuss bbPress to wpForo replacement questions.

After the migration from bbPress to wpForo using Go2wpForo tool you just need to install this plugin. When this plugin installed try to navigate to old bbPress topic, it'll redirect to new wpForo topic.

I just finished migration from bbpress and activate the redirection plugin Redirect2wpForo but i got 404 on old bbpress urls example:  https://www.noimamme.it/community/discussione/toys
The wp foro url is  https://www.noimamme.it/community/bambini-fino-a-5-anni/toys  (so category instead of "discussione")
How can I fix this?

Hi @barbarabax,

First, please navigate to Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks and add trailing slashe to your URL structure. Currently I see the forum address is:

 https://www.noimamme.it/community 

It should be like this:

 https://www.noimamme.it/community/ 

Also I don't recommend use wpForo with the same root path /community/ as it was for bbPress. Please change wpForo Base URL to /forums/ or something else in Dashboard > Forums > Settings General Tab. Then navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Dashboard admin page and click on [Delete all caches]

In case you want to say thank you !)

Thank you @barbarabax,

We just noticed your nice review was removed by wordpress.org moderators because of forum link you've put in that.  https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wpforo/reviews/

If you could find a time to create it w/o the URL we will be greatly appreciative. Thank you again!

Hi,

I need your support.

The plugin doesn't work properly on me.

The plugin redirects to the root of the Forum.

Redirects to categories.

However, it does not redirect to opened topics. When the user enters the website by searching with google, the bbpress forum topic opens.

What could be the reason?

Hi @pesimist57,

Could you please provide some examples? What we could search and what URL we should click to see the issue?
