Does anybody have any clue how to fix it? It’s still an issue in the latest trunk
Actually Burtadsit it’s happening to the “private messages” section of my buddypress install. Specifically the subject of the message before a user clicks to open it. Anytime there’s an apostrophe in the subject of a private message (in my installation), the slashes are added.
How can I remove them? I’m using Trunk 1211
Andy, for those of us not using SVN (I’m using a trunk version from about a month ago)…how can we fix this ourselves?
I don’t have any errors in my error log for the past two days. Is there maybe an issue with me using the BuddyPress home theme in a subdomain? My root’s theme doesn’t have any customizations for BuddyPress (although I did add register.php, activate.php, plugin-template.php and sidebar-template.php to the themes directory).
It seems like everything works when I “add” the community subdomain to the links…but I don’t know why.
Edit: This even includes the register link…when I try domain.com/register, it redirects to a login screen, but when I use community.domain.com/register, it works perfectly! What is the secret magical power of the community subdomain?!
hmmmm…I’m not using any other plugins other than buddypress and Dynamic Content Gallery in the regular plugins folder. This wasn’t an issue a few days ago, but suddenly it stopped working, and I haven’t done anything to the core.
I’m using the latest trunk version, so it’s not a bug with RC-1.
The weirdest thing about it is if I add a subdomain to the activation email…ie. community.domain.com/wp-activate.php?123456789, the domain suddenly becomes activated, and the password is given. Can’t figure out why adding the subdomain to the URL would work, but I just tested it for the heck of it and it actually worked! Now I’m even more confused…maybe I’ll just hack the core and make it send emails out with the subdomain in the link … but really, I’d love to know why that is happening…I know hacking the core isn’t the best idea
To see what exactly I’m talking about…check out the two links below and take a look at the URL in each one…both have the exact same activation keys…but only the one with the “community” subdomain shows up correctly:
Activation WITH “community” subdomain:
Activation without “community” subdomain:
I’m using the default BuddyPress theme…I’ve just restyled the header.
Thanks mspecht…I tried editing the bp-core.php to see if it would shorten the blog post in the Site Wide Activity, but the site wide feed doesn’t seem to use bp_create_excerpt. My Site Wide Feed shows about 250 characters (not 55), although it does seem to be showing exactly 55 words. I’d like it to be more like 10-15 words…Any other ideas?
are you able to force the Facebook Connect Avatars to do the same thing? This exact same issue is presented with FB Avatars in BuddyPress.
Was this ever done? or are blog avatars still stuck with the Wavicon?
Josswin…for issue #2, google “Plugin Commander” for WPMU. It’s a solid plugin that solves that issue, and allows you to control your plugins for your users.
was this ever resolved? I’m having the exact same issue. When I go to upload an avatar, the picture shows up perfectly, however when i try to crop the image, the “crop” button just takes me to the next screen to “crop” the smaller image…when i click that, both avatars turn black, and that’s it.
I have this installed and working great, but the facebook connect button seems to screw up the css in internet explorer…it pushes the members/blogs/groups search and the default login together, so there is literally no space between the two, and the facebook connect button is all the way to the right of the screen. Is there any way around that?
Also, I have my BuddyPress theme in a subdomain: (community.mydomain.com), and when you click a member’s name who used Facebook Connect to sign up, their avatar does not work in the member theme…instead it just shows the default avatar monster things.
Should my member theme be showing up as community.mydomain.com/members/user1 or just mydomain.com/members/user1? Because currently it’s the latter, and everything works fine except the Facebook Connect Avatars.
Hmmmmm…now that I look at things a little bit closer, this may be a Facebook Connect issue.
Take a look at my most recent facebook user. If you look at http://community.beardownarizona.com, you’ll see the facebook avatar is working fine. Now click that user to go to the member page ( http://beardownarizona.com/members/beardownmember/ ). The image no longer pulls over.
Now, go to http://community.beardownarizona.com/members/beardownmember/ … Now the image works fine.
This only seems to happen with Facebook Connect users, since all the other members’ avatars (ie. http://beardownarizona.com/members/admin/ ) seem to pull over to the member theme just fine.
Thanks for the help! Under “Path” for my root blog, it’s just “/” (without the quotes of course). Uner Blog Options, “Siteurl” shows “http://beardownarizona.com/”, and “home” has the same thing.
When you say my Member’s header.php doesn’t match my home theme, are you referring to my BuddyPress home theme (ie. the community subdomain)? How would I match them?
The BuddyPress install is in the MU plugins, with the Member theme in /wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member, and the BP Home theme in my theme’s directory. Are you saying I can’t have the BuddyPress home theme in the subdomain at all? Everything is working fine, including friend requests, wire posts, etc. It’s just that there’s no “community” before the member pages.
I’d even consider hard-coding it if that’s an option.
Okay, last question of the night…can I change the “facebookuser” slug to something else like just “user” or “mydomainuser?” or is that not an option?
I’m running the latest trunk (r 1197), and I installed the plugin into my /plugins folder so an example path is /wp-content/plugins/bp-fbconnect/bp-fbconnect/wp-facebookconnect/common.php.
I am running the BuddyPress theme in my “community.mysite.com” subdomain, so I’m trying to activate it through that dashboard, not the mysite.com dashboard.
However, when I go to activate the plugin, I get the following fatal error in my plugin menu:
Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Need some help…could it be a bug with installing this into a virtual domain?
So how do we install this?
Put bp-fbconnect.php in the mu-plugins folder and the bp-fbconnect folder in the plugins folder?
Or do we just drop the parent bp-fbconnect folder into plugins?
Edit: Nevermind…just saw it was added to the first post.
fair enough, thanks for the quick response.
or maybe something that makes the slug for private profiles the user’s email address name prior to the @symbol….ie firstname.lastname@example.org would create a benny148148 slug…and somebody who signs up on a later date with email@example.com would get benny1481482 as their slug, or something similar.
Not sure how difficult this would be…assuming it’s even possible at all. It would definitely be prettier than the facebookuserX…of course, we’ll probably never be happy
Thanks again for this plugin!
Is it possible to allow the user to change the site’s slug from facebookuser9 or whatever to their actual name once they edit their information? Or will this always make the slug facebookuserX?
It’s an awesome plugin by the way! Just wondering if there’s any way around the slug issue?
@Nicola: Would you be willing to post your plugin somewhere?
I’ve included a couple images to show my problem. In the first image, the admin bar is not displayed because a user is not logged in.
In the second image, the wrap and header div id’s shift downward (along with the rest of the page), but the background image stays fixed, which causes an unpretty distortion.
I’d like to have the background image flow perfectly at all times, including when the admin bar is showing. Where should I hard code the background image?
Image when users not logged in (looks good)
Image when users ARE Logged-In (distorted)
I apologize if this is a simple question, I’ve been trying for hours to get it to work.
