Installing both sitewide and group level forums in buddypress

I have a wordpress buddypress social theme single installation.
I have went to the Forum section of Buddypress and activated / installed the forums (sitewide as well as group specific forums ). Further I don't know if they are working or not. They don't seem to work because I'm unable to create any topic from the front-end. I don't see any forum section in a group's sub-nav (like Invites, Group Docs etc...). Please explain how to fix it / use it.

    It looks like you only have sitewide forums created. When installed for groups as well a 'forum' nav menu will display (alongside where group events currently sits) as you noted.

    You might try deactivating BuddyPress and reinstalling bbPress. Sometimes the 2 plugins have a bit of trouble linking up correctly. The developers are working on making them two completely separate plugins (that work together very well) for BuddyPress 1.7.

    Outside of doing the above, I'm not sure whatelse would cause this issue. Anything in your php error logs?
