Can't make the forums plugin work.


I've just installed the Forums plugin that I found by luck and seems to fit my long lived need for a simple forum part of my wordpress site.

I followed the installation process and created my forum. The shortcode [forum:1] is embed at

Here's my problem: only thing that showsup on the page is the title of the page (Forum) and what I believe to be the default message for an empty forum: "No topics to display…Click here to create a new topic."

The link's only action is to reload the page, without showing any form to create a new topic. Would you know a way to fix that ?
