@Chris, I am facing a strange issue. Please explain.

 

I can't edit with Elementor the page you created for my forum in English (board 6735) at this URL xxx.com/community_en. I can't ad the sidebar for posts in English, for example.

I found you created another page xxx.com/community_en-2. I can edit this with Elementor page, and when I apply some modifications, it ALSO applies to  xxx.com/community_en !!!

 

Could you elaborate on this? Because for my french forum, I have only one page to set.

 

This is weird.

 

Thanks

I add a question. You added the shortcode [wpforo], but how did you set  Board ID for xxx.com/community_en?

@ldj72,

When you create a page the Page ID is set by WordPress, you cannot set it on your own when creating the page, after creating the Page you just insert the Page ID in the Board Settings: Edit the board and insert the Page ID in "Page ID" field

@Chris 

  1. Where can I find this page ID in WordPress? I see a slug and canonical URL but not a page ID.
  2. I can't edit with Elementor the page you created for my forum in English (board 6735) at this URL xxx.com/community_en. I can't ad the sidebar for posts in English, for example.

    I found you created another page xxx.com/community_en-2. I can edit this with Elementor page, and when I apply some modifications, it ALSO applies to  xxx.com/community_en !!!

@ldj72,

Remove/delete the pages that I have created. And start yourself:

1. Create a new Page, insert shortcode field in the page and insert [wpForo] shortcode in the shortcode field.

2. Set the Slug of the Page the same as the Board Slug: community_en.

3. Save the page and publish.

4. In Dashboard Pages, find the new Page, move the mouse on it, and look bottom left of the browse, you will see the path of the page, https:domain… post=number&... the number is the page ID.

5. Remember the Page ID, navigate to wpForo > Boards, Press Edit on community_en Board, insert the page ID in the Page ID field.

@chris Once again, thanks for your great support. I was unaware of the Page ID on the bottom left when you mouse over. I was looking at fields in the admin panel.

Now, all is clear in my mind, and I understand how the board id from wpforo is linked to the WordPress page id.
