This is know incorrect configuration issue. Please check these points:

  1. Make sure the forum page URL is identical with Forum Base URL. The forum base URL is located in Settings > General Tab > Forum Base URL option. For example, if the forum page URL is www.example.com/community but the Forum Base URL is set www.example.com/index.php/community you'll not see any forum on front end, this is the most popular reason of this issue. Both should be www.example.com/community .
  2. Please note, if you create a Forum Category (Blue boxes in forum management admin page) without Forums you'll not see any forum on front-end. Forum Categories are just for grouping forums and setting forum layouts. You can't have forums without Forum Category. All forums of Forum category inherits Category layout and are being displayed under the Category. Please the attached screenshot:

  3. Make sure your usergroup is forum access has appropriate permission to "View Foums".
  4. If you use SSL / HTTPS protocol please make sure you use Beta-5 or higher version.
  5. Permalinks must have trailing slash. Problem comes if your permalink structure doesn't have trailing slashes, for example:
     
    Please make sure it exists.

Forum does not show on the front end at domain/community even though I created both category and forum in admin.  Attached screenshot is what i see.  Also there is no way to create a topic under a forum, even as admin, even though I have all access privileges.

Please read the 5 cases explained on the first post of this topic, above. I just updated the last two cases, #4 and #5. Make sure you've deleted all caches after each change.

None of those issues applies to me.  I am seeing the forum page but NO Forum list and NO WAY to post a topic.  I can send you my admin login so you can check the settings.  And for example the forum is showing here but no list:   http://www.afrotainmenttv.com/community/ OR  http://www.afrotainmenttv.com/community/main-category/

This is very very frustrating.  I am the admin and there is no obvious way to add a topic either as admin or user.  You need to do a better job of simplifying tour documentation for simple items like this.  AGAIN< I have successfully created category (blue) and forum (white) in admin.  But on front end, the forum title is not showing.  And the "forum" breadcrumb is NOT even clickable.   http://www.afrotainmenttv.com/community/

Please send admin login details to support[at]gvectors.com. It seems you've mixed up page settings. We'll check and fix it. As you can see on our forum even simple registered user has an option to create topic.

in my case the next solution:

so i installed RusToLat plugin and resolved problem.

Hi, been through all 5 points brought up and have the same problem.  I can see forums in view mode from edit section but not live.  Live only stats show up and an incomplete breadcrumb trail.  I added topics via the view page when forums opened.  My base url matches.  I have my category set and rest beneath in non blue sub listings. I have also set to simple configuration.  So I think its all okay per your 5 steps above.  the short code placed on page is [wpforo-index]. looks great on the view preview.
