This is the nicely formatted confirmation email I was receiving when BuddyPress and Contact Form 7 were both active. I don't know which of the two plugins generated this. I assume BuddyPress. I would love to generate professionally formatted emails like this but I would much prefer if THIS REGISTRATION SYSTEM JUST WORKED.

Ok, wpForo doesn't actually send any emails out (smtp). Just queues them to Wordpress. Also wpForo doesn't handle logins/registrations/lost password functions. Wordpress core does all that.

Keep that in mind.

Well all those "issues" have nothing to do with wpForo plugin. Well 99% of them.

Please do not get me wrong but you should spend some time learning Wordpress. Otherwise there is NO WAY you can go ahead with anything you will do with your site.

Again, this is a friendly advice and nothing more.

@anonymous20 Yes, I'm sure that's true. And what I WILL do is hire a knowledgeable developer to sort this out. If this has nothing to do with wpForo, fine. But if you do have any understanding of what MIGHT be causing these issues, where to look, etc. it would be most helpful. If they are not caused by wpForo (which is the only plugin now running) I just don't know where else to investigate. 

Thanks.

To be honest i tried to follow your issues and possibly help but as @robert posted i was also confused.

Your problems are not complicated and you do not need a developer by any means. You just have to learn a bit how Wordpress works, themes, plugins etc.

Of cource if you can't, find someone to help you out.

Do not give up, not that hard what you try to do, just put things in order. And do not install any other plugins for now.

Also are you using the option to turn Wordpress to wpForo? Is that what you want to do?

@anonymous20 When I read the documentation, from what I could understand, I did not want to turn Wordpress to wpForo. It says, "This option disables WordPress on front-end. Only forum pages and excluded post/pages will be available. wpForo will look like as a stand-alone forum. This feature is under Beta stage." 

Because I wanted the option of having an About page (called Why Workchat, in this case) and because the feature is in beta, it sounded like a bad idea.

What I wanted seemed simple. The site would be primarily a forum, with an additional page about what I'm trying to create by making this site. 

I would like it to generate professional-looking, but (importantly) working forms to register members and let them recover or reset their passwords. 

And, as a designer, I would like to have some control over the look of the site. Not a lot. But I don't want it to feel generic.

That's basically it.

So you know, I have used Wordpress for years as a blogger, and have assembled a couple of simple sites myself. As a designer and creative director, I have developers who I hire to work on more complicated sites (where I need custom themes and so on).
