wpForo 1.x.x I get this message: "Error 2253 | Please contact to forum admin." after adding topics or replies
I've just installed WPForo on my test side. As manager I could add categories and forums. All seem to work well but when I wanted to test adding a topic as a regular registered user I got the above message after pressing the Submit button.
I've checked the database and all WPForo tables seem to be there.
Am I missing something?
Please help because I am evaluating WPForo amongst other forum plugins to use on our website and I am stuck now.
This may be WordPress Session issue.
Please make sure you're logged in when you test it.
Disable all plugins and test it again
If you can't find a solution please send admin login details to support[at]gvectors.com email address. We'll check it and find the problem causer.
I get this message as well if I use the built in login from WPForo (and then can't see any forum). I also get this message when I've disabled all other plugins.
If I use another login (My Theme Login) I see the forums and can read them etc. but get the error when submitting a topic or reply.
Should that work or should I try another login?
This error comes when the website URL doesn't match WordPress URL. When the referrer domain name doesn't mach to current page domain name. Could you please navigate to Dashboard > Settings > General and check if the both WP URLs are the same? Something wrong with your website URL and domain name structure. This is a security risk detection by wpForo and it doesn't allow any action.
Yes, that's the issue, both URLs should be staging2.tom.prolin.com or tom.prolin.com. They should not be different. Maybe you've forced URLs in wp-config.php. All issues come from this URL changes.
