Yes, we enabled the forums on the demo. The forum is working fine. We also tested locally and it is working fine too. I guess it is an issue with your forum (database). Does your forum works if you switch to the defaultClean theme?
Oh boy...I was sure hoping that this was theme related, as we touched absolutely ZERO lines of code associated with the forums....nope, not a single edit was ever made to any of the views in the /boards folder.
I have also opened and checked the data in the database table and see nothing wrong with it.
Because it is now a production website, I cannot just try other themes. I am in process of establishing a development environment and will try changing theme to defaultClean and see if we still have the problem.
Can you think of anything else that might be a problem?
