Think of how woocommerce has a shop page, which is their plugins product post type archive page. Its auto created after plugin install, and I think a confirmation to create the specific page.

What if bbPress had something similar but for the forum index.

Its recommended to create a forum index page in the forum settings, it says it near the forum root settings.

I always see some user generated issues that usually happens while users are trying to create a forum index page using a shortcode while moderating the forums.

Right now my only idea currently would be to create a common error guide to help users that create this page, and do a step by step explanation of everything they would need to do.

Why not make it easier for them though.

Other ideas could be to make all bbPress forum pages use this page template. Some other WordPress forum plugin currently has this feature, and it could possibly be witchcraft.

I think that's a good idea!

We could go even further and create. like Woo does, a settings step by step after installing bbPress with user adding/checking his needed custom configs.
