If you have a WordPress site that has previously been using WP e-Commerce (version 3.8.13 and and earlier) upon activating bbPress you will notice, well, no bbPress menus or references. Anywhere.
Update: You may get a “You have insufficient WordPress permissions” notice when activating bbPress, the following steps will fix this conflict with WP e-Commerce.
Earlier releases of WP e-Commerce adjusted the default role capabilities of WordPress User’s which for one reason or another – I am yet to identify the exact cause – results in bbPress not loading it’s welcome script (e.g. creating new default Pages, intro screen, WordPress Admin menu’s, etc.). Here’s the fix.
- Install and activate User Role Editor from Plugins > Install within the WordPress Administration
- Open Users > User Role Editor
- Click Reset
- De-activate and re-activate bbPress
