haha! dude, the issue got resolved when I updated to Buddypress 1.5!!! Now I only have one new question:
The blog post with the BP update mentions oEmbed is now used in activities and so on. How do I embed images in forum, groups and activity updates?
@mercime Well, I’m using a child theme based off on bp-default, which is the default BP theme. Thing is, now I recall doing this in my new stylesheet when I first created the child theme:
/* Inherit the default theme adminbar styles */
@import url( ../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/adminbar.css );
I tried importing the styles for the default theme and the adminbar.css within the same style.css for my child theme. Could that be the issue?
I just tried adding the above changes and the issue isn’t resolved.
@mercime awesome! so you were able to replicate the issue? Is there a fix?
Yes, I tried the whole procedure without bp-custom.php (I removed it anyways even though all it does is set the avatar uploads folder). I do not use any mu-plugins.
@mercime It looks the same. I deactivated all plugins both on the network and in each individual site (I have 3 sites in my network). Made sure the default Buddypress theme was activated (only on one site) and Buddypress on network activate.
I believe you had told me to follow these steps before in the WordPress forums before, but it didn’t work that time either. What could be causing this issue?
@djpaul Bro, how you doing? Just writing to see if you have looked into this. Thanks so much for any help you can provide.
Update: I tried switching themes and the issue persists, so I gather that the problem lies within the dashboard files themselves, but I don’t know how they got edited since I’ve never touched my core installation (and even if I had, the core files get rewritten with each new WP update, right?)
@Paul No, I haven’t customized my dashboard theme. I’m actually using a child theme based off from the default that comes with Buddypress. The screenshot below shows what’s going on, except now I’m using WP 3.2:
@hnla I was able to reach my Network Admin dashboard by going to the dropdown menu as you mentioned, however I had to go “Inspect Element” in Safari and then remove “padding:0;” temporarily from the wp-admin-bar div.
@foxly Thank you for you prompt reply, just writing to say I appreciate the work you’re doing and I believe this is one of the better kept support forums I’ve seen amongst the BP development community. Keep it up!
Hm… also finding out that the post MUST have some text added to it or else BP will spit an error: There was an error when replying to that topic.
That’s weird. I’m having a similar issue where I can create a post and add images to it, but I can’t add images to the replies within that post. My site is only a month old and I haven’t even started to tick off some of the plugins I installed. Maybe I should start by deactivating them one by one and seeing if any of them are causing conflicts.
Just a quick question, is there a way to upload more than one photo at a time? Also, once uploaded, can said photos be placed into a forum thread or a comment in a group?
I actually was able to fix it as well with your code. I tried it, but I think I’ll stick with just putting in the correct BP_ROOT_BLOG value for the site I’m running.
Now the only other issue that’s been cramping my style is the fact that the BuddyPress admin bar is overlapping on the wp-admin dashboard on all sites within my network.
Nevermind! I was actually able to fix it by going into wp-config.php and making sure that the BP_ROOT_BLOG was set up with the right blog ID. I had a ’9′ instead of a ’10′
How would I go about starting to check up on my multisite set up?
Hm, ok I found it. Seems the admin options for the group only show in the admin bar when I’m actually in the page for the specific group I created.
Just a quick recommendation: I think it would be easier to just have the admin options show up right when I log in to avoid jumping through hoops. Otherwise it might take a bit more time for less experienced users to find the option like it happened to me.
Hey there, I haven’t seen a reply here yet, but I did look a bit more into the issue. What I checked is that the root of the directory that BP is trying to create points to “/var/www/” and this is not how my server structure works.
I believe this is a default setting that can somehow be changed. Is there a way to change it?
Nope, not on a child theme or the bp-default.
I’m running Buddypress on a multisite install with subdomains. My main domain is http://www.astromono.com and i have two other subdomains: comic.astromono.com (with comicpress) and saril.astromono.com (with buddypress). When I try to edit the theme that’s on the main domain, I go to Network Admin, look for the theme and then try to edit the main php template (index.php).
Before I installed Buddypress, I got access to the main php template just fine, but now when I try to edit it, I get the Buddypress main php template instead of the one that comes with my theme. This issue was happening before I installed and used the BP Template Pack in order to make my theme compatible with BP.
