Thanks @mercime. Sadly, the RocketTheme theme I’m using has a blank style.css and has a ton of broken up .css files that the gantry framework call. Right now I’ve got 252 .css files so I’ve got no clue what I’m looking for or where to add the horizontal/vertical style.
When i checked in Firebug, I got a huge list that had a ton of css files linked to it. I saw that it called for a generic-button but the only one I found in the css files listed was in bp.css in my Gantry-Buddypress plugin. After adding some horizontal/vertical code, it didn’t do anything to the buttons or how they view on the page.
Ok, I’m either a dope of way too tired. I forgot to activate the plugin. It works well on the member page but in the listing of members/users, the Follow button kind of merges into the “Add Friend: button. Here is a screenshot: http://forcedreality.net/merged.png
What page would I need to edit to add something like a break tag?
Ahh, ok. I’ll give BP Moderation a shot. Thanks Paul and Shawn!
I too am having this problem. I’m using a custom theme from RocketThemes. I looked in the member-header.php file and it has that line of code you listed.
On my member profile pages it only lists “Add Friend” Public Message” & “Private Message.”
Ok, I guess the deactivate/reactivate sort of worked in that it readded the Name field back to the page. The only issue now is that it’s not “aligned” correctly to BuddyPress.
In Profile > Edit when changing your name, it changes the name but not the “nicename”. So a user I have is named Mike with the nicename @alfred.
Dunno what to do about this.
Well, crisis averted, I think.
I deactivated Extended Profiles then reactivated it and the Name (Primary) (Required) reappeared. Just need to check and see if it did any damage to users that edited their profile while the Name feature wasn’t enabled.
Yes, that’s it Chris. I may have jumped ahead and called it a security flaw incorrectly. What I meant was that, if this bug was actually working as intended, it didn’t allow members to change their display name, which could cause people to think that it was a security issue. That people wouldn’t join if their login was visible. Since the WordPress allows a Nickname to be visible and that BuddyPress didn’t, that some could see it as a flaw.
Since it it being fixed, it showed me that it wasn’t intended and that someone else knew of this and was working to fix it.
Thanks for the response
Is there a way it can be hidden by adding /* */ to the php? If so, what file would need to be edited?
I know that it was listed in the upcoming patch notes about a fix to the Extended Profiles name bug, but I’ve put off the launch of my site for far too long and I really need to go live soon. I need to get this set for the launch within the next 2 weeks and I doubt that the patch with the fix will be ready before I go live. This plugin that will allow this is just something temporary that I need to get the site up and running.
If it can be hidden with /* */ in the code, I wouldn’t actually be removing it, just making it not visible/usable. Then once the patch with the fix is ready, I can remove the /* */ to make it usable again.
I just really need to get my site running ASAP.
Thanks and hope you can help.
Chris, if this is going to be fixed in patch 1.6, what patch are we using now? I’m a noob when it comes to finding that info
How often is BP patched?
So, I’ve tried adding the “Tree” folder to the theme folder and nothing happened. I then added the Tree folder to every folder and sub-folder in my wordpress site and still nothing. I removed all of the Tree folders from all of the folders except for your plugin folder and decided to fiddle around with the plugin as-is.
Now, I’m not sure (since this plugin has never really worked for me yet) but I don’t know if the plugin actually would work with my site and all of the Gantry stuff. I really hope this is not the case as I really need this plugin.
With the Hierarchy plugin from a fresh re-install, in the options of the plugin from the dashboard, I was able to rename the Nav Item and Group Tree names and they show up perfectly on the groups page. But when I enable the “Show Group Tree” list, on the groups page, when I click on the group tree I get an empty page within the template. Now I’ve got at least 5 groups ordered through the Hierarchy but they are not showing on the Group Tree list. I remember this when I first intalled this plugin because I got the same thing. It just never hit me that the theme/gantry/whatever isn’t reading the plugin.
I’m at a loss. I’ve no idea what to do. There are no other Hierarchy plugins and this one, if I can get it to work, will be one of the most used features of my website. I just have no idea where to look and try and figure this out.
Can you tell me if this part is supposed to be like this?
When I hover the Group Tree list, the URL is like this: http://www.domain.com/groups/?tree
Is it supposed to read the end of the URL as “?tree” ?
I’m not a developer or coder, so I’m not sure of the lingo that is used. But this is what I mean:
Does your plugin interact with the official BuddyPress plugin by reading files from within the plugin/buddypress folder? If so, that is what I believe my problem is.
The Gantry Budypress plugin, made by RocketTheme, has its own plugin directory: plugins/gantry-buddypress.
The Gantry BuddyPress folder contains files from the official BuddyPress plugin folder that have been edited to work with their own Gantry Framework. So, the Gantry BuddyPress reads info from both the official BuddyPress folder as well as their own Gantry Buddypress folder.
So, if your plugin is reading files from the official BuddyPress plugin’s folder, then it may not be using the same files that Gantry BuddyPress uses. If I have an edited file, for example, named index.php in the Gantry Buddypress folder and the original file named index.php in the official BuddyPress folder, my BuddyPress will not read the file in the official folder. It will only read from their Gantry BuddyPress folder. So if you have lines of code that reflect the original BuddyPress folder instead of the Gantry BuddyPress folder, there will be issues.
I was told by the people at RocketTheme that a basic solution was to take the template files/folders from other plugins and add it to their Gantry BuddyPress’ HTML folder to get them to read. That is fine. But if any of the files within your plugin call directly for info from the official BuddyPress plugin while it’s in the Gantry BuddyPress folder, it will not be reading what is needed… which happens to be in the Gantry BuddyPress folder.
See what I mean? I hope you do. I’m not saying this is in fact the issue. I’m just trying to trace what could be the cause of the plugin not working alongside the Gantry BuddyPress plugin as well as the official BuddyPress plugin.
Though, thinking about it…
In any of your .php files, so you have code in it that calls for anything directly from the buddypress plugin? Like, inside the index.php of /tree there is “
I’m not a great coder, but do you have anything like that but calls for info directly out of the Buddypress plugin? If so, I might have to change it to call for something out of the Gantry-Buddypress plugin folder instead.
Sadly it’s still not working. I’ve added the /tree folder into any directory that has a /groups, /members, etc folder. I’ve even added the /tree to other plugin directories that have their own /groups folder. Nothing is working.
Unfortunately, I can not test to see if it’s working with the default bp theme. The way the Rocket Theme is set up, if I disable it, it will overwrite any saved settings.
Might be out of luck on this plugin. Thanks anyway.
I gave that a try, copying and moving the folder to all folders inside of /html and it didn’t do anything.
I’m trying to get a reply back from RocketTheme, but I wanted to ask (since I know they will ask me) what parts of the BuddyPress groups are being called for in the template files? I’m hoping that the folks at RocketTheme will be able to know exactly where to place the /tree folder based on what the template calls for.
Also, to go back to your previous reply, if you do decide to make shortcodes for this plugin, I would be indebted to you!
Yeah, my site is heavily modded with plugins. (This is also the issue I believe I’m having with the other thead I started.) I’m using a RocketTheme theme working off the Gantry BuddyPress plugin. Since the Theme calls for the Gantry BuddyPress plugin files, many of the normal BP items do not display unless I add them to the /plugins/gantry-buddypress folder.
In the Gantry BuddyPress directory I have the following folders:
I was told by the RocketTheme people, about a previous BP error, that whatever template files from other plugins need to be put in the /html folder of their plugin. However I can not find template files for the Hierarchy plugin.
Inside my /html directory I have:
So I’m not sure what to add from the Hierarchy folder to the Gantry-BuddyPress folder.
I ran into the same issue on a test site. When i tried to visit a group page that was made before the latest BP update, the URL didn’t go anywhere. I noticed that the url also had an extra slash. (ie. groups//candy)
All newly created groups, however, all direct to the correct page.
So I just deleted the old test groups then created a new group with the same info. It worked. Not a great solution but at least I knew that it was something from before the most recent BP version update.
Just a follow up, what would I use to replace the color of the URL links inside the popup? Right now, they are a blueish color for all bubble styles. I would like to change them to white.
Yeah, as I’m testing the Blog Categories for groups plugin it’s only for blogs within groups and not for groups themselves. This doesn’t allow you to categorize the groups, just the blogs that fall within the groups.
I’ve checked it out and it’s not really what I’m looking for. It only associated WP blog categories with a group. So if I added server “categories” to the blog categories, users would have the ability to associate their groups with any blog category.
What I’m worried will happen is that someone will create a group meant for the “server” blog category and accidentally associate it with the “News” blog category. That would make more work for me to backtrack any groups put into the wrong category then put it into the correct category.
I’ll fiddle around with this one a bit more but there doesn’t seem to be much admin control over what people have the ability to add groups to specific blog categories.
Wow… please disregard the comments I made about BP Group Tags. Apparently I downloaded the wrong plugin thinking it was BP Group Tags. That’s exactly what I was looking for. In addition to your plugin, CJ, I have exactly what I’ve been looking for.
Excellent plugin CJ! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for.
I looked into the BP Group tags, and while it’s good, it’s not exactly what I’m looking for. One BP site I’m working on is a videogame fansite. Each member can create a group based on the game they play. But, like most game, there are other “mini-games” inside the main game.
I was looking for a way to allow people to use a required checkbox with a bunch of options so they can select the type of mini-game their group is about. That way, when someone searches that exact mini-game, they get a listing of all the groups that deal with that type of minigame.
Sadly, with the group tags, it leaves the tags to be placed in the hands of the user. This can lead to people typing in a tag that doesn’t have anything to do with their group, a misspelled tags, etc.
I figured it would be best if there was either a drop down or checkbox selection so that people could choose what category their group best fits into, It would also save time not having to search tags for profanity or inappropriate content.
But I can really see this plugin being able to give more options to the users. Is it possible to add many different types of forms to this plugin (checkbox, dropdown, etc) so that Admins can activate/disable them in the same way URL and Group field is?
Once again, great plugin!
Ok, I tested this out and it looks like it’s going in the right direction.
Howeverr, I am also getting the same error that Mikey3D got. Same error about an array on line 9.
Also, the information from the custom fields is not visible on the groups page. The only info showing is the default Group Name and Group Description. None of the restaraunt info (as I’m testing right from your code) is showing up anywhere except in that Groups Admin.
