Better to have duplicates than none at all.
Cheers everyone. 2012 was really great!
`delete_option( ‘bb-config-location’ );`
In other words, delete the ‘bb-config-location’ option, and you’re good to go.
Your account looks fine. Possible you had a naughty word in your reply that caused it to hit the comment blacklist?
Thanks for the kind words.
the backwards compatibility with non-bp (wp) themes was pretty buggy
This isn’t very helpful. Can you explain what bugs you experienced, and how to duplicate them?
If it is a BuddyPress bug, or if there’s something WP Engine needs from us, they know we’re ready and available to ping ideas off of. They’re good folks, and I’ve met several of the guys in person on multiple occasions.
If you can, update in this topic whatever happens, and we’ll make whatever changes we need to on our end.
Can you create a ticket over at http://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org? I can confirm this isn’t working as intended in some cases.
@lunchgirl – I can appreciate your predicament. You’ll likely want to open your own topic and try to get support outside of this one. Try to include as many details as possible:
- WordPress version
- BuddyPress version
- bbPress version (if applicable)
- Link to your site
- Any debug notices or errors in your error log
- What you’ve tried
Yeah; pretty sad loss. Maybe @modemlooper himself can chime in?
You’re right, that it’s all a bit confusing right now. It sounds like some part of the update script didn’t run, as it would normally remove the duplicate roles.
Having multiple roles is a bbPress specific feature, that BuddyPress will likely adopt to some small extent in 2013. The basic goal is to *not* have 1 dropdown with a bunch of roles in it, restricting users to having 1 set of capabilities. Since no site is the same, and no user will always have all/some/none caps, being able to have multiple roles is pretty critical.
In BuddyPress, it’s less-so, because we assume all users can do all things in BuddyPress, and have purpose built restrictions in place for super administrators.
You should be able to safely remove the duplicate and bbPress roles with some calls to
remove_role(). bbPress 2.x adds its roles dynamically at run-time, and only on the site it’s activated on. Visiting the Users list in wp-admin for that site should show you the columns you describe.
How do I get version 1.61 back?
You’ll need to download the zip from here and upload it manually to your server. There is no UI in your dashboard to help with this, other than Plugins > Add New > Upload
@lunchgirl – Sorry you had trouble. Any idea what the cause was? Nothing changed directly in the sign-up process between 1.6/1.6.1/1.6.2.
It’s fixed in the 1.6 branch and trunk, and we’ll release a fix in the next few days.
If you have questions on the achievements plugin, this is not the topic to do it in.
Closing this topic, since it’s long since fixed.
Thanks everyone for a great 2012.
It sounds like maybe you’re confusing two different things:
How the roles were added and removed.
How the users were granted those roles.
I know how they got there, and how they were removed. I’m curious why your users have those roles at all.
bbPress 2.2 and beyond have their own secondary user roles, that do not mix in with WordPress’s role picker. Basically, to avoid exactly this kind of scenario, where users are left without roles at all.
bbPress 2.2.3 should be automatically granting users a forum role when they login and browse the site. Whether or not they have a WordPress role on the site shouldn’t dictate their ability to create activity stream content. The only users that can’t create content in BuddyPress are spammed or deleted users.
Do you have some other role-based custom thing happening on your site that’s interfering somewhere?
I’m saying that BuddyPress creates several roles when you activate the Forums component, as the roles are specific to bbPress 1.x. That said, those roles never actually do anything, and likely can be safely removed.
So, I’m asking, how all of your members were assigned that role.
Odd they are 500 errors, and not 404′s. You may want to refresh your permalinks, incase something got mucked up in there.
You could grant them all the Subscriber role. How did they all end up with the Member role? It’s not BuddyPress’s default role; did you set it to be in WordPress’s settings?
BuddyPress only does this when you turn on the old version of Forums. The “Member” role is part of bbPress 1.x, but was never intended to be used anywhere.
Like the error message suggests, your server ran out of memory.
This has been an issue for a while, though no one has invested time into figuring out exactly what the problem is. My guess is something to do with ajax requests being too greedy, but I have no evidence to support that.
@hugo – I’ll be building a page for the more popular BuddyPress plugins soon. BP Media will be part of this.
Fantastic. Closing this, as resolved.
Don’t worry, that was my final question for you guys.
You can be mad, or you can have compassion for the umpteen other fires we put out on a daily basis. Repeatedly pinging us to answer questions for you, that you could answer yourself by checking out trunk, doesn’t help us get 1.7 released sooner, it only makes us your search engine.
