I successfully installed the forum plugin, used the plugins install link in admin settings to set it up - it went fine.

When I clicked the "Forum" link in the geeklog admin box (the box on the left) I get the following error message:

Template Error: set_root: mysitename/layout/mythemename/forum/layout/admin is not a directory.
Halted.

I have installed the forum and navbar folders to my layout/themename/ directory. But, I do not have a folder called "admin" within the /themename/forum/layout directory so I don't understand this error message.

Assistance is appreciated.

**Edit: Also, while I do have the forum link in my admin box on the left, I did NOT get a forum link in the header for my theme. Yes, I did update the theme's css file.

Also, when I look at my geeklog site's plugin block - I see that version numbers are listed - I don't know if it's significant that the plugin version for the "forum_2.3.2_1.3.9" installation (that whas the name of the file I downloaded here) says version 1.3.8 (under the Geeklog version) in this block, my other two plugins say version 1.3.10

And, in case it matters... after moving all the folders from their default location after the tarball unzip, I am left with the following in the geeklog/plugins/forum folder (exists outside the document root folder):

directories of: language, sql, templates, userupdates
files: changelogs, config.php, debug.php, functions.inc, and the install.html

Nevermind... I went looking at the index.php file that was resulting in the error and it led me to the discovery that some of my files did not upload properly
