Hi there,

 

I'm having a few different issues. First one is the forum plug in itself doesn't seem to show on any web browser except for chrome and I'm not sure why/how to fix that. 

Additionally, I've added a screenshot, but when looking at the forum on my website there doesn't appear to be a log out option anymore?

Last one, when looking at plug ins enabled on Wordpress, wpforo has become three different drop down categories (WpForo, MAKE│NZ forum, and Forums)? And when trying to add new categories in any of the sections it doesn't seem to be coming through on the actual website.

 

I feel like there's probably going to be a really simple fix to these problems but I'm not sure what it could be.

Additionally, I've attached what the "WpForo, MAKE│NZ forum, and Forums" menu looks like

Hi @sabineb,

I think you've mixed boards with forums. I see you've created three boards. You should have one board and create forums in that board. Are you should you want to have three different and separate forum pages?

@robert Hi Robert, thank you for that. I'm still a bit stuck on why the forum won't load on the page when using browsers other than Chrome. The forum also disappears from the page after clicking log-out meaning I can't log back in. Would you have any advice for this?

@sabineb ,

1) Try temporarily changing the WordPress theme to any default WordPress theme and check if the problem persists or not.
2) Make sure the forum permissions are set up correctly for the user group "guest".
3) If the problem still exists after the above two steps, please enable WordPress DEBUG in the wp-config.php file to display PHP notices, errors, etc., on the front page. This will allow you to check if your site has any errors or notices from the backend. https://wordpress.org/documentation/article/debugging-in-wordpress/
