normally you got to the group list page and there is a button.
hmm well the behavior you are experiencing is not normal behavior as you can tell by the fact your test site works. it may be that you’re going to have to hire someone who knows more then either of us to fix it. i have a similar problem that developed and is not reproducible (at least not as far as i’m aware):
if the problem isn’t in the files then i would suspect its some kind of database thing i suspect you have a similar issue.
have you tested this with the BP default theme? if the problem only occurs with your theme that might be a klew.
@factorian everyone here is volunteering their time and doing their best. Everyone who is on this site is in almost the exact situation as yourself (i’d imagine) we are all busy people with lots of responsibilities and obligations to paying clients and/or employers. The simple fact is that not all problems have a simple solution and you cannot expect anyone to take on your work as their own.
ok gotcha but i know it works for users:
i didn’t do anything to make that happen and he never uploaded his avatar so i would think that has to be a gravatar.
i noticed one of our users had transparency in his avatar but i’m almost certain it’s because he has a gravatar. maybe there’s a relatively painless way to trick BP into thinking a group has a gravatar? Pure conjecture but just a thought.
well you can use oEmbeds without any modification or added plugins this also has the benefit of not burdening your own server with an unknown amount of data.
nice one thanks for that might have to add an embed field to see what folks do with that.
ah gotcha so just put that into the bp-custom file then?
oh i figured she was just talking about as an update. That code you have there is pretty cool @modemlooper would that work with any oEmbed or just youtube? you know me and code but it looks like it would work with any oEmbed. Also is that something which would be placed inside bp-custom? BTW i like your site design.
no i’m saying if you put the link (as text not anchor tag) it will substitute the embed automatically it’s called an oEmbed more info here:
i don’t think you’re following here the urls that automatically embed content can only be from that list of pre approved sites you should read the whole page it clarifies how the whole thing works. Glad to be a help!
edit: i guess you can add to the whitelist but i believe it above my skill level explanation for that is towards the bottom of that page.
fyi you should not be pasting embed code you should be pasting the youtube page url or shortlink for the video
well there should be a button on your blogs page (or whatever you have named your network directory page).
well i think it’s only for sites on the whitelist:
not me but i would assume it would best to do it that way since that’s the way buddypress itself is activated i would have to assume any buddypress plugin would be designed to work properly with networks at one point buddypress was WMPU only if i’m not mistaken.
nobody is paid to help others here as such we do what we can to try and support each other.
i believe most (any?) BP plugins would also need to be network activated.
Are you saying that the main BP plugin can be run in network mode which in turn kind of aggregates all of the blogs?
i’m saying it must be as far as i’m aware anyway. What it aggregates is the activity on the network of blogs.
Right now, my setup is WPMU with all of the BP plugins running only on the main site. I wanted one single community area which blog owners can take part in when they aren’t working on their own blogs.
that area would reside on the primary blog/site. hope that helps. and i believe most (any?) BP plugins would also need to be network activated.
