I have installed the core Forum module in Drupal 7. When I go to:


The forum list is displayed, however the links that allow me to post are not being displayed.

I'm surprised that I haven't been able to find a tutorial on the net on how to set up a Drupal 7 forum.

What am I doing wrong?


Your theme is probably not presenting the new action links in D7. In a default install of D7 and forum (using Bartik theme) I can see them. See http://definitivedrupal.org/suggestions/action-links for an explanation.

  • You're probably right. But I took the forums.tpl.php template from the Forum module directory and I have not modified it. How do I make Drupal display the $action_links? – Carlos Muñiz Jun 24 '11 at 3:54
  • i personally use the omaga tools module drupal.org/project/omega_tools which expses these elements as block, so I can easily place them where i need. (you can also use drupal.org/project/blockify to get the blocks) – user842 Jun 24 '11 at 4:06
