I have wpforo set up and UA member running the authentication. So there is a login page, registration and password change pages that are not included in wpforo.

I want to switch so I use wpforo for everything but when I change it and flip the switch for wpforo to manage the entire install the forums get lost so it looks like there is no forum at all even though there is. 

When I switch back everything is visible.

Is there anyway I can pay someone to fix it ?!

How are you switching, and where are you searching your forum then? The forum link can be found in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > General tab. So, after the switching that X thing, you can find your forum URL in the admin page.

@dmlphotography,

This option turns off all pages on the website and only leaves the forum page on the website home page. Please read the description of this option and use it only with separate WordPress installation.

@dmlphotography,

If you need to connect your main website users to forum users, then you should use wpForo in a separate page in your website. So, as far as I see, you're using wpForo in that way and the "Turn Wordpress to wpForo" option is disabled. It's good. You just need to change your website [login] and [registration] buttons to your forum login and registration pages. 

  • Login: http:// yourwebsite.com/community/?foro=signin
  • Register: http:// yourwebsite.com/community/?foro=signup

Also, it's a good idea to enable these options to redirect all native login pages to wpForo: https://wpforo.com/community/how-to-and-troubleshooting-2/i-have-7-forums-but-forums-page-shows-only-three/#post-56112
