    I have narrowed down to the point that I can say editing following code breaks the registration.

    define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);

    Whether I change ‘true’, to ‘false’ or remove the code or comment out the code, registration system breaks.

    Any ideas on this?
    Thank you.

    Okay, so yes the website is working however new registrations are not going through. When I click ‘Complete Sign Up’ the registration page refreshes and comes back blank just with the heading ‘Create an Account’ no registration form on the page.

    No activation email sent, tried all basic possibilities, deactivated all plugins, just buddypress is active. Cannot do any registrations.

    Please help

    Hello @mercime @hnla I started this thread more than a year ago and I have never been able to remove MultiSite from my website.

    By the guidance provided by @eisenwasser I have created a clone of my website on another hosting account elsewhere. This clone installation is 100% functioning like my original website and now I am ready to do all the experiments safely.

    I have followed again all the steps here – http://wpmututorials.com/how-to/how-to-disable-multisite/ and now see the following error message –

    Notice: wpdb::escape is deprecated since version 3.6! Use wpdb::prepare() or esc_sql() instead. in /public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 2913
    
    No site defined on this host. If you are the owner of this site, please check Debugging a WordPress Network for help.

    I request you to kindly help me with the current situation so that I can successfully remove MultiSite from my website.

    Many thanks!

    Also, in the settings here – https://mysite.com/wp-admin/network/settings I have set up following message -`

    Dear User,

    Your new mysite.com account is set up.

    You can log in with the following information:
    Username: USERNAME
    Password: PASSWORD
    LOGINLINK

    Thanks!

    –The Team @ SITE_NAME`

    However, what my users are receiving is this -

    Thanks for registering! To complete the activation of your account please click the following link:
    
    http://mysite.com/activate/?key=some-key-here

    Its a MultiSite installation.

    Hello @hnla

    I have a Micro Business and I have total 5 websites all belong to this business only. I don’t posses any technical knowledge but WordPress / BuddyPress is simple enough that it allowed me create my websites.

    I thought keeping all my websites together will let me easily update and maintain them. However I discovered some issues while running BP and NON-BP sites together specially SEO compatibility.

    NOW, I have 2 separate installations :
    1. A MultiSite that has 4 websites all NON-BP [No issues here, all fine]
    2. A MultiSite that has only 1 website BuddyPress enabled and I want to disable/remove MS here.

    The problems that I’m facing are discussed here : http://wordpress.org/support/topic/disabling-multisite-db-error

    Kind regards

    Hi @mercime ,
    My Installation is :
    WordPress : 3.5
    BuddyPress : 1.6.2
    I (myself) wanted to have my 5 websites in the multisite. 1 main site (BuddyPress) + 4 sub-sites Just WordPress (Not BuddyPress). I don’t offer sites to members.

    I have taken back up using Simple Backup. It backs up

    1. SQL which is fine approx 7 MB
    2. Server files 800 MB! I’m wondering if a backup becomes required how long it will take.

    Please advice if the above file size is normal?

    regards

    Hello @mercime

    Thank you for your reply.

    Deactivate all plugins and change to Twenty Twelve theme. (Deactivate all, including buddypress?).

    My members are registered on the network, once multisite is removed will my members still be their?

    Members’ photo albums are the most important part of my website and
    after trying available plugins, I found BuddyPress Album to be the best, easy, simple and lightweight solution.

    I am grateful for the prompt support provided to fix the compatibility with WordPress 3.5.

    BuddyPress Album is a 5 star!

    Hi @djpaul !

    Thank you for your reply, I want to report this to the plugin author. I posted this help request at http://buddypress.org/support/forum/plugin-forums/bp-album/. Is it not there?

    Kind regards

    Found the problem

    I have a second bp website which I didn’t updated to WP 3.5 and BP 1.6.2. I just tested everything (album uploads) worked properly until I updated.

    After update, if I try to upload a picture to my BP-Album it shows following error:

    Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /home/content/xx/xxxxxxx/html/wp-content/plugins/bp-album/includes/bpa.classes.php on line 322 and defined in /home/content/xx/xxxxxxx/html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 990

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_create_thumbnail() in /home/content/xx/xxxxxxx/html/wp-content/plugins/bp-album/includes/bpa.screens.php on line 394

    The above error didn’t show on my first website because I turned off errors by using below code in my function.php

    ini_set( 'display_errors', false );
    error_reporting( 0 );

    Sorry, the NOTE above is written incorrectly. It should be as follows :

    NOTE : in both cases (Admin or Subscriber) the address bar shows the address https//-mysite-com/profiles/username/photos/upload/. This means the address bar doesn’t change (remains unchanged), its the actual upload page url.

    Hello @Hugo , Thank you very much for your reply

    Yes I have BP 1.6.2 and WP 3.5

    If I (admin) try to upload a new picture to my album it stops in a blank white page. Refreshing does the same thing.

    If another users (subscribers) try to upload new pictures to their albums they end in a 404 page (Screenshot). This 404 page is different from a normal 404 page (Screenshot).

    NOTE : in both 404 cases the address bar shows the address https//-mysite-com/profiles/username/photos/upload/. If you (being the same user) go to this address, this is normal upload page url under photos (slug changed from album) >> upload picture

    This code saved me as a temporary solution :

    ini_set( 'display_errors', false );
    error_reporting( 0 );

    Just add the above in the function.php before the closing of the file ie; before ?>

    Shared it just in case anybody is in trouble.

    @Woodynat2000 Thank you for your help, however the solution didn’t work for me. It takes my site completely off…just the following error message shows:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/xx/xxxxxxx/html/wp-config.php on line 3

    Thank you for your replies. I have temporarily disabled the plugin.

    Members’ photo albums are very important to my website, I can’t afford to keep the plugin disabled for long. Hope to get this resolved soon..

    @modemlooper Hello and thank you again for your help. What I wanted was fully achieved with the code you provided. This is fine and working very nicely however now I wish to keep a few member profiles out of this restriction. Basically Admins and moderators, I want to allow only these members’ profiles accessible by subscribers (In addition to their own, which is already working).

    The setup at the moment is as follows:

    1. Subscribers can only see and maintain their own profiles.
    2. s2members level 1 and Admins can see others profiles too.

    What I want now is:

    Subscribes can see a few selected members’ profiles too (May we define them either by role or by their id to exclude from the restriction?).

    Any ideas on this?

    Thank you very much.

    @modemlooper

    THANKS A TON!!! You have made me achieve 100% of what I was thinking of, your fix has worked like a charm..

    Unfortunately I do not know php as yet so I could not make your entire code work for me but yes a combination of what you have given and what I had has done the trick.

    I picked up `&& !is_admin()` from your code and edited `&& !user_can( $user, $capability )` to `&& !current_user_can(access_s2member_level1)` and added it to the piece of code I had. This worked totally!

    I’m truly thankful to you.
    I wish you all the very best for the good work you do :-)

    Hello,
    Thank you very much that you replied. No, I have been trying to find a solution for this for more than a month at BuddyPress forums, S2member forums and everywhere else I could find people talking about BuddyPress but no luck!

    S2member support has said that this is not possible, they suggest uri restrictions but a uri restriction prevents user from seeing their own profile too.

    If for example I restrict /profile/ a member will not be able to see his/her own profile. I somewhere found a custom uri /members/%%displayed_username%%/ but that too blocks members from own profiles.

    Please put some light on the idea you have in mind.

    Thank you very much for your time and help.

    Thank you very much for your reply. This seems to be simpler and I will try this.

    However, while searching for a solution for this problem, I found a css code to try removing search box. The code is as follows
    `.registration #search-form, .activation #search-form { display: none; }`
    Then, I used
    `.page-id 20 #seach-form { display: none; }`
    Removed it from all the pages, except the one I wanted to keep it on.
    I figured out using ‘page’ (.page #search-form { display: none; }) removes the box from every page but not blog posts and bp pages (like profile, activity etc.)

    Can you help me know how to define ‘blog posts’ and ‘buddypress pages’ to remove the search box from those pages too. I want to say something like following:

    `.post #seach-form { display: none; }`
    and
    `.bp-page #seach-form { display: none; }`

    I have tried ‘post’, ‘posts’, ‘post-page’, ‘blog’, ‘blog-page’ etc. and many values for buddypress pages as well but nothing works out.

    Please help me figure out the value to put to define the page types.

    Thank you very much again :)
