Thanks, Paul. Much the easiest way, and it worked perfectly.
Thanks, Paul. I dug out this version:
. . . which appears to be working.
Looking forward to 1.6. Sweet work you all are doing.
I haven’t tested it, but have a look at this:
Thanks, mrjarbenne. That plugin looks promising. I’ll play with it and see if it works for me.
@boonebgorges: Thanks: this all helps. My very related question: can I have “activity” and “members” and “groups” pages on multiple blogs? For example, can I have groups pages here:
I want the same groups showing on all the pages (the ones in my core BuddyPress install). It’s just a matter of allowing my users to access the BuddyPress features within each site.
That was a crazy-good idea, but no (I checked to be certain).
I get this URL with my error message
I’ve tried various topic names, but nothing works.
Thanks for the idea, though.
I’ve got the same problem: sign-up works, redirect works, but user isn’t signed in.
Any progress on this front? I’d love to use both plugins, too. If this isn’t something that’s going to happen, I can find another way around it, but would like to know that I should start working on figuring one out.
Hey Boone, any ideas on how I would figure out if it’s some old residual plug-in debris that’s causing the problem? I know I ought to go through and clear out the left-overs from long abandoned plugins, but I haven’t yet.
Thanks for the reply, Boone. In my wp_bp_invite_anyone I have the following fields:
Is that all that should be there? Thanks.
One quick thought: not sure where the plugin looks to verify if messages were sent, but might my use of the WP-Mail-SMTP plugin confuse it?
Thanks, Paul. I’ll upgrade at the end of the week and let you know if that doesn’t fix it. Cheers.
One quick note: I learned the hard way that this hack I added causes trouble if the group doesn’t have a forum: it bounces people who hit the group’s link back to the front page if there’s no /fourm address for the group. Confusing for users. Oops. Guess I need to be more sophisticated with this.
Thanks, r-a-y. I’d followed the instructions in the post you shared, but the only files I’d modified so far in my child theme were in the root folder for the theme. Sounds like I can selectively do other folders deeper down. Thanks for explaining.
@r-a-y: you’re absolutely right, but I’m new at this. Do I have to copy all the files to my child theme in any folder where I change even one file, or can I just create a “groups” folder in my child theme (I already have one) and add only the one file I’ve changed? Thanks.
Ok, I figured out a “hackish” temporary sorta-fix.
If you go to the groups-loop.php file (/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/groups/groups-loop.php)
And on line 28 add “forum” (no quotes, and no space) after where it says bp_group_permalink() ?>
. . . the link from the groups page will automatically send people to the forum page. This solution has limitations, obviously. If people get to the group via any other link, they’ll still end up on the group’s activity page. But it’s a start until somebody much cleverer than me shares a real way to do this.
hnla: having another look at this code, I realize that it looks familiar: in fact I’ve already added this in to my functions.php file. Unfortunately, it addresses something different. This code puts a link to each group’s forum in the group loop. What I’m trying to do is make it so when people visit a group’s page that they automatically land in the forum section.
. . . though, perhaps I could tweak this to do just that. Hmm. Let the site-busting begin.
hnla: Thanks for sharing this! Pardon the rookie question, but I’m not sure where to add this code. I’m guessing it’s in the groups-loop.php file, but I’m guessing it matters where, precisely, I put it.
Matt and Steve: will definitely share here if I figure something out anywhere other than in this thread. I’ve already toyed around with the template files a bit, but to no avail.
So, does no response mean that this is impossible (or really difficult), or does it mean I’ve asked a bonehead question and everybody is rolling their eyes? If the latter, please say so and I’ll keep poking through the codex to try to figure it out. Thanks, all.
Just to chime in: I’m having the same problem. Anybody find a temporary fix (some sort of notification reset or something)?
Oddly, I think I’m running into the jQuery challenge on Firefox, but no Safari (both on mac). I’m using Links 2.1. Looks great, btw.
