    @wernerk ,

    Not too much of a long shot. Yes, I am using email addresses as the username. The users are created with a plugin called BuddyPress Import. I have it create usernames based on the email address.

    http://www.youngtechleads.com/buddypress-members-import/

    Your post at http://buddypress.org/support/topic/problem-with-email-adress-as-username/ appears to be the same problem I am having.

    Since I can’t change the username this could be quite a hassle unless it can be fixed…

    @bphelp can you create a user with an email address for the username and see if the issue can be duplicated on your install?

    Did you ever find or create any code for this?

    I could not get this text to post. Trying it here:

    Hello All,

    I have a very tough and challenging problem with the register page on the Primary site of my multisite BP install. Register works properly on subsites but not on the primary site. We are running WP 3.3.2 and BP 1.5.6 in Multisite.

    It was working fine on the Primary site prior to the installation of Peter’s Login Redirect on Saturday March 30th. The plugin was removed but the problem remains.

    Trying to find a BP expert that can help!

    Here is the gist of it:

    http://community.abeo.us/register page does NOT work.
    Subsites, such as, http:test2.abeo.us DO work. The code is the same for both sites, register.php, in the BuddyPress Social Theme.

    There are two symptoms;
    1) If users fill out form correctly, an account is created on the server but the user cannot login with their username and password and they are not logged in automatically as they should be with two plugins that accomplish this BP Disable Activation and BP Auto Login Using Activation Code. Again, this was working fine prior to the installation of Peter’s Login Redirect.
    2) If users do not fill out the form correctly no warning messages are displayed for required fields.

    Hopefully someone in the community can help me resolve this.

    Group Docs is working out great. This should really be back in the Plugins repository.

    I may have it modified to allow for bulk uploading and auto-naming the documents.

    Okay, so I have both plugins, Group Docs and Docs, up and running. Pretty cool.

    It would be cool if these plugins should be combined so that you can either create or upload a doc all in one folder.

    Thanks the advice.

    BuddyPress Docs is cool. I suppose I could put links to filea in a
    BP Doc….

    Thanks Ben,

    Passwords are certainly possible but don’t make for a very good user experience.

    It would be really cool to have the ability to have posts and files that the group members automatically have access to without having to do anything.

    There used to be a group documents plugin but it is gone…

    You wrote: I wouldn’t use WangGuard because it sounds like that could easily cause problems for non-bots.

    I ask: What could cause problems for non-bots?

    You wrote: I’ve been having good success with SweetCaptcha,

    I ask: SweetCaptcha looks cool. Do you have to come up with your own designs or are they stock?

    One possible problem with this model, like any captcha, is that once the bots create a database of these drag and drop actions, human figures it out and then put in the database, it may become ineffective. The more adoption a model gets in WP the more attacks it will undergo from spammers.

    Great to read about your success with BuddyPress and Enterprise Nation.

    Customizing registration appears to be a must when creating a high load community. There is a lot of heavy lifting that needs to be done during signup which requires a custom process.

    Interesting that you do not use and activation email.

    The site appears to be locked down from a BuddyPress standpoint. No Activity Stream?

    @neononcon you might want to check out WangGuard (free in WordPress plugins) for help in limiting spam registration.

    @mercime thanks for the reply.

    I did not realize how extensive the spam registration, comment and trackback issue is on WP/BP. I am curious though as to how these registrations are getting past the required fields.

    In doing more research there are several models for limiting spam registration;
    captcha, which appears to have been compromised through the use of attack tools and, IMHO, is unfriendly to users.
    honeypot, which places a hidden field in the registration and when filled out registration is blocked.

    Currently I am testing WangGuard. It looks like it takes a more holistic approach treating spam registrations like a virus and building a database of bad domains.

    I have not fully launched my site yet so I don’t know how effective it is.

    Anyone else have a recommendation for methods/solutions for limiting spam registrations?

    I had enable BP multi blog enabled in wp-config, thus BuddyPress is automatically activated and configured at the site level.

    I went ahead and dis-enabled BP multi blog and this put the BuddyPress control panel in the Network Admin site. There I was able to configure bbPress so that it worked.

    Then I enabled BP multi blog and added sites. I now have separate bbPress forums on each site with the addition of BP Multi Network filtering.

    Hopefully you can help me. bbPress seems foundational to the BuddyPress experience….

    I installed a fresh copy of WordPress Multisite and added the BuddyPress plugin and Network Activated.

    On the primary site I configured BuddyPress and then clicked the “Install Group Forums” button. I still received the “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.” error.

    @willhendy,

    I have this issue as well. I have a primary site with BuddyPress enabled and configured and several subsites with BuddyPress enabled and configured.

    Did you Network Activate BuddyPress or activate it on a site by site basis?

    If you network activate BuddyPress is it automatically setup (but not configured) on all subsites.

    @mercime ,

    Thanks I check with Ron, his version of BP Multi Network does not filter Members or Widgets users.

    The other BP Multi Network (almost exactly the same name, by Brajesh Singh) does, BUT only on Multisite NOT any of the Multi Network plugins.

    Note: The user count on the primary site shows all of the site members, only the subsites are filtered by BP Multi Nework.

    Last night, on a fresh install of WP Multi Site, I added Networks+, then BP Multi Network, then BuddyPress.

    In the Members page of a test site I can still see users that are not members of that site. It must be me. I am just not sure what I am doing wrong.
