log in message getting to work

The site http://www.bettercitiesforum.com/

The problem: i have added bbPress and needed to have a more friendly login screen.

I have the plugin Log In Message activated, with the settings in the settings general panel ok.

The site has the Forum page set as home landing page, with the shortcode there.

I don’t see how to activate the login plugin though.

The general settings and the forum page both have comments oked for that.

general settings -> anyone can register ( contributor)

discussion settings have checked users must be registered, and anyone posts a comment

the forum page has the checkbox marked for allow comments.

so i am wondering how to enable the plugin.

the details and usage of the plugin are at

premium.wpmudev.org/project/log-in-message/

which i have poured over a few times, but see no epiphany just yet…
