 I'm having an issue with the forums similar to what's described in this


 I set up about 300 groups a few months ago.  Was only using 2 of them for
 testing purposes and they worked.  But when I tried using a different
 group to post a test post, I get the error message "This group does not
 have a forum setup yet".

 I double checked that the "setup forum" box was checked. It was.

 I tried unchecking, saving, then rechecking the box.  Both from the admin
 panel and from the group itself.  Neither worked.

 If I create a new group, and check the box, the forum gets set up
 properly.  I did this both from within a group, and from the admin panel.

 Other data:

 In the wp_bb_forums table, I only show about 30 forums.  In the
 wp_bp_groups table, I have about 300 groups.

 I need to enable the forums on all the groups without having to re-enter
 300 groups again.

 I amusing Buddypress 1.5.5 with Wordpress 3.4.2.  I tried upgrading to
 version 1.6.1 but it broke a few other plugins that have custom coding in
 them, so I reinstalled 1.5.5.
