Forum groups - Sorry, there were no forum topics


I have access and subscriptions all set up and content is filtering fine. However - I'm having problems accessing posts within the forum.

As the administrator I have created a group. I have added the user to that group. I have granted access to that group using the Groups option in Buddypress under Access Levels.

When I click to visit the forum however it says that Sorry, there were no forum topics

I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious but if somebody can give me a steer that would be great

    Kind of, here is my scenario.

    1. I've written a post in "Purple" group as the administrator.

    2. I've created a test user and allocated him into the Purple group

    3. When I login as the test user and go to Forums I can't see the most I created as administrator

    No difference. I deleted all posts and followed that exact process and when I logged in as the test user and click on Forums, I get this:

    Sorry, there were no forum topics found.

    So I can only assume I have a problem with permissions?

    The test user is subscribed to the correct group, and the access level is checked in Groups as a positive.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
