PPS: Prior to installing the Mail From plugin my emails were being sent from email@example.com. Wonder if I had created an email account called ‘noreply’ if that also might have solved the problem,.
Update: Enabling the ‘Mail From’ plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mail-from/ solves the problem.
I’m not thoroughly satisfied with this solution because it is too mysterious , but at least it is a solution.
I’m having the same problem as Tonyone, and it goes away when Buddy Press is disabled. The first problem stated in this thread, the forgot password feature is not sending emails, is different than what the “me toos” are describing.
With BuddyPress enabled
A new user who creates an account gets their account notification email
The Fast Secure Contact Form works and sends email
The Email Users plugin works
The Bulk Password Reset plugin does Not work, neither does the ‘Get New Password’ on wp-login.php. Both of those trigger this error:
The e-mail could not be sent.
Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function…
This may not be a mail problem but a password rest problem pulling the wrong error message out of … someplace
I’m on a Bluehost server, running WP 3.1.3 and BuddyPress 1.2.8
Thank you everybody for the suggestions. I’m setting up a site for an artist community and I don’t want BuddyPress to assign (IMHO not very attractive) monster gravatars to the members at all. Perhaps a future version could be written to respect the WordPress setting for No Avatar.
@kunalb Thanks for this great plugin. I want to override the orange color for .ep-event-details specified in events.dev.css. First I put the class in my child theme style.css. This didn’t work until I disabled events.dev.css by renaming it to xevents.dev.css. I’m now trying what you are saying above, and I want to make sure that I understand you correctly. I put /assets/css/events.dev.css in my child theme folder and it does not override the events press style. I also tried putting my own version of events.dev.css in my child theme root and that also doesn’t work. Then I tried putting /mytheme/assets/css/events.dev.css in the buddypress theme folder – no luck there either. I’m going to resort to the rename hack for now, but I’d like to find a more permanent solution. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
PS: and why is there a ‘dev’ in the name of that style sheet. To me that implies “development” as in “not finished”. I feel like I’m missing something.
It would be nice to be able to override the styles as-in a child theme – which is the first thing I tried. Why they chose to display events in an orange (#FFA200) instead of a neutral color is beyond me! Is that color likely to go with the majority of themes? I can’t show the site to the people in my group until I change it – it looks horrible! I hope I don’t have to fix it every time I update Event Press.
