separate forums' pages, targeted shortcode is not working
I have the main "community" page but also wish to have separate pages, with separate forums (with different template). You mentioned to use a shortcode with the forum ID, like [wpforo item="forum" id="4"], but it's not working for me. I'm getting a 404page containing my main forum. Apparently the "community" page cannot have any child-page. Is there a solution, or maybe this is not implemented yet?
You're doing something wrong. You can have a main forum and separate forum pages as many as you want, and there should not be 404 error. We can login and create a demo separate forum page using shortcode if you send website URL and admin login/pass to support[at]gvectors.com.
I sent you an email... forgot to write the "object" in it 🙂
We got your email and as far as I see you think it's possible to have a separate forums using shortcode. wpForo don't allow you use multi forums, wpForo only allows you to display certain forum ,topic or profile page on other WordPress pages, but all will be redirected to the main forum page once you clicked on a link. So keep stand-alone the main forum page with [wpforo] shortcode.
In reply to your email, I have not embedded the forum in a page, I have just changed the slug from "community" to "lounge" and amended in settings/general. I have then inserted some text before the shortcode, this is also allowed in settings/features/output-buffer. If this is not allowed then please review your settings, because they are misleading.
Also this screenshot is misleadinng, because it makes you think that you can create a shortcode for more than one forum/posts ID, whereas it only allows one.
I understand that even if you display a forum in another page, redirection will always be to the main forum. But is there at least a possibility to hide one forum from the main one, if it's appearing elsewhere?
Maybe this is a suggestion for new updates: to have different forums in different pages, each one independent. I also suggest to create a widget that is not a sidebar, so it can be included anywhere (say, the footer). Thank you for your clarification.
