I've just set up a new WordPress web site ( uttoxeter.com ) and then downloaded and installed the latest wpForo plugin ( which looks ideal ! ).

The install went ok and the Forum is up and running on the website. The only problem is that there doesn't seem to be an "Add New Topic" button anywhere on the Forum !!

I've spent hours searching for the answer.

What have I missed ?  Please advise.

I should add that I'm new to WordPress having previously used Joomla for many years, so it may all be due to my stupidity !

Before dealing with your actual problem, i think you have some Wordpress installation/setup problem.

Your url "http://uttoxeter.com/wordpress/index.php/community/" is not correct. That "index.php" is also present in all your Wordpress urls.

Also enabling Wordpress debug to a LOG would be very useful at this stage.

I cant  understand where the index.php is coming from. Perhaps its left over from the old Joomla imstall

I never see it in my url's here !

I will go and delete all of the old joomla files and directories.

So while I'm doing that can you consider my main issue please

If you don't have a working Wordpress installation, it would be a waste of time. Because your problems could be related to that.

The "index.php" could come from your .htaccess mod_rewrite  ?

I've located the line : RewriteRule .* index.php [F]   in the file httaccess.txt

 

do I just delete this line ?

This is a leftover but it is strange that Wordpress didn't add his own.

This is what you must have, remove everything else (of mod_rewrite)

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# END WordPress
