 >  When you install bbPress it creates a forum tab on each group.

 You're talking about the bbPress *plugin*, right? You are correct that the
 tab should only show up when forums have been activated for that group. If
 it's showing up all the time, it's a bbPress 2.3 bug.

 > There really needs to be an option put back into the component admin
 screen that allows you to turn off the group forum option site-wide.

 I don't know about *putting anything back*. The 1.5-1.6 Forums component
 option refers to bbPress 1.x, the standalone software. We removed the
 option from the component screen by default because we don't want people
 to be activating legacy forums anymore - existing installations are fine
 indefinitely, but we don't want any new users of bbPress 1.x in BP.

 That said, I think it is a good idea to allow the site admin to toggle the
 group forum functionality altogether. Whether this is done through a UI
 toggle or a filter/constant is not entirely clear to me. In either case,
 this would primarily be a feature request for bbPress.

 Would like to get jjj's feedback on this issue.
