The ‘maidenhosting’ url is a staging area. We copied their existing site (thedesignatedsketcher.com) to add BuddyPress and work out what turned out to be a plethora of kinks before pushing the new changes live.
@boonebgorges: That will work, but how about redirecting after registration, i.e. filling out the WP sign-up form? Of course this might have to deal with the sign-up form itself which isn’t necessarily a BP issue…
@aljuk – Does this function appear in the default BP single.php? I’m using a custom layout and BP-template-pack so I might need to do a bit of modification to the template’s single.php so users can ‘like’ individual posts outside of the activity stream…
Apologies if I’m resurrecting an old thread.
EDIT: Turns out this was super-simple. Just had to add <?php bp_like_button( get_the_ID(), ‘blogpost’ ); ?> to single.php in the custom template.
I might be resurrecting an old thread, and if so I apologize…
Can BuddyPress Like’s functionality appear anywhere other than the Activity Stream? Can it be applied to posts, pages, etc? If so is this done via shortcode or must it be hardcoded into the likes of single.php?
@boonebgorges: That definitely works. WP default sign-in now works properly. Thank you.
Now… here’s a thought. Is there a way to redirect a user after registration directly to their shiny new BP members page so they can edit their profile, upload an avatar, etc? At the moment it takes them to the ‘check your email’ WP functionality that exists by default.
The client was curious about having the sign-up form submit to both WP and BP but I don’t think that’s going to happen, and redirecting from one sign-up form to another just caused more headaches…
@mercime – Took your advice, reuploaded BuddyPress and /register still redirects back to the base site.
What I meant by reinstalling WP is similar to what I just did with BP – download a fresh copy of the install from wordpress.org and manually overwrite the files on the FTP site, with the exception of wp-config.php so it still points to the right DB with the right credentials.
I believe this WP was installed manually, but the server does include some legacy folders that have nothing to do with WP – drupal, etc – which I suspect may interfere with the overall performance of the site.
Okay, with all plugins deactivated and BP default theme enabled, /register redirects back to the home page.
If I were to reinstall BP (and perhaps the base WP files as well) would the information in the DB be preserved?
Oh, and reactivating plugins afterward broke the site (white-screen syndrome). I hate this thing.
“Did you check if you allowed registration in your second WP install which has BP activated?”
BP is activated on the core WP install, there is no second one. It’s set to Anyone can Register in the WP-admin backend.
I apologize: for the first part of your question the BP and WP installs are on the same domain.
Going directly to the slug just bounces the user back. All the fields in the form remain filled in. This happens even when I remove the standard PHP form (sign-up.php).
I know everybody here is generously donating their time, and your expertise & patience is greatly appreciated. Is there any way I can get some help or feedback before the weekend?
Thank you, mercime, I apologize for any hysterics. Running out of time on the project in question.
It’s WP with some heavy customization to which BP is being added. (‘Spliced’ or ‘Grafted’, actually).
I found the Import plugin but it seems to only work on recent posts. I tried to modify it per the community instructions and broke the site.
Is there really no support for this issue? I’ve looked everywhere. The lack of interaction with the developers and posted support for issues such as this is very disappointing.
No, it’s a single site install. Version 3.1.2, now all other plugins and themes are disabled. Still no sign of BuddyPress.
