#3413: Group Forum slugs inconstant with other slugs and interfere with bbPress
/forums/ slug
 Reporter:  InterMike    |      Owner:
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new

Component:  Forums       |    Version:  1.5
 Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:
 Other pages and slugs within BP are hierarchical and make sense (i.e.
 /members/admin/groups/my-groups). However, the Group Forum slug "forums"
 sits at domain-com/forums when it should really sit somewhere like domain-
 com/groups/topics or domain-com/groups/directory or even stuck right in
 with the /groups/ page so that My Groups and My Topics and the like, would
 be conveniently on the same page, especially since they're part of the
 same component after all.

 And in doing so, it also interferes with bbPress right out-of-the-box,
 since bbPress creates a slug domain-com/forums/forum/[forumname] as well
 for it's forums, unless you change bbPress's "/forums/" slug to something
 else. But, it should work right out-the-box, though, especially for people
 who are new to WP/BP/BB, and to avoid being inconstant and confusing.

 It also creates confusion when Group Forum Topics are labelled "Forums" in
 the menu links (I know it can manually be changed, but still, I'm just
 saying, it's inconsistent and confusing).

 A "Forum Directory" link is also right next to the "New Reply" on a
 group's forum page, when it should really be named "Group Topic

 It kinda feels and looks like you guys are trying to turn group topics
 into bbPress.
