#3049 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

setting forums root to 'index' causes 404 error in 2.6 beta-2

Reported by: Robin W Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: high
Severity: normal Version:
Component: API - Rewrite Rules Keywords: needs-testing reporter-feedback


I just happened to have my forums root slug set to 'index' when I tried 2.6 beta, and this causes a 404 error.

Anything else seems to work, and not an issue for me, this was set to this as a bbpress user had this setting some time ago, and I'd not reset it.

  • Component changed from General to API - Rewrite Rules
  • Keywords needs-testing added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 2.6
  • Priority changed from normal to high

I can't remember the last time the code around this setting was changed, so this will need some digging.

Maybe the rewrite rules didn't get flushed; hopefully it's that easy.

I'm not able to reproduce using index as the forums slug _bbp_root_slug

@robin-w Can you try flushing the permalinks without changing any settings and see if that resolves the issue, if not could you drop a copy of what your _bbp_* option values from your wp_options database table and I'll try to reproduce the issue using your same settings.
