My forum is behind a paywall, using Membermouse, so you won't be able to look at it, but I was getting help from Membermouse and they ran a diagnostic to see if they could find the origin of some random 504 errors I was getting while testing my forum set up (they aren't fatal, they just need a refresh), and he found this instead:

12-03-2022 18:47:18 (likely GMT -0700)
Uncaught Error: Call to a member function get_option_items_per_page() on null in /home4/debfillm/public_html/thereasonwelearn/wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpforo.php:796

#6 [internal function]: do_shortcode_tag(Array)
​...

Does anyone know what this is? 

Also -- and this is weird, so bear with me -- I wonder if this could have anything to do with the fact that my WPForo page structure is super bizarro.

Here's what happened: 
I installed the plugin, built my whole forum, then accidentally deleted the forum page and was not able to restore it. I created a new forum page, found the board ID, and put it in with a shortcake, thinking that would solve the problem, but it didn't, or rather it it created a brand NEW forum page.

SO, now I have TWO.
One points to wpforo and is published
One points to wpforu shortcake with the board ID, and that one is a DRAFT

You would think the draft one has nothing to do with my success, but if I put it in the trash, the forum breaks. I don't appear to need to publish it for things to work, but this is very strange, and doesn't seem right.

I can't help but wonder if that issue above has something to do with my error. I have personally not seen this error come up in my testing, when using as admin or test user. 

Thoughts?

wpForo Version
2.1.1
WordPress Version
6.1.1

Seems fine, and so far, everything is working ok. This is logged in member view, not admin.
