    Many thanks Paul. I hadn’t updated the database user/password in bb-config.php. It’s working now.

    doh! of course. .directory, .groups and .my-account classes, plus the class of the div I want to apply css to seems to cover all eventualities. Thanks Roger.

    Thanks Roger. Without getting in LESS or SASS, which I don’t have the time to learn right now, how would I construct the function for this? I am presuming I would be using PHP and including a function in my theme’s functions.php file, which would be in the form.

    If body tag has the id “bp-default” then set drop-down menu item background color to…

    Just wondering if there has been any progress on this. It’s some time since the last post. I’m not seeing any comments on/replies to updates in my daily digests, which suggests not. Also the number shown to reflect the new activity in the digest emails doesn’t correspond with the actual number of items in the digest. Are these extra items the replies to updates? I agree that, if it’s not possible right now to include the full reply, a line indicating that there have been new replies would be a good interim workaround. Is the programmer still poor? Is this the problem?

    Apart from fixing the issues that I’m seeing with WP 3.4.1 (see this thread for further info), I’d like to see a timeline feature, where projects for a group, and also the projects for all groups could be seen on a timeline. This would help groups to get an overview of where they are at.

    I just edited a reply to a forum topic, as opposed to an initial post/topic and the original time of creation was preserved in the activity stream. I’ll report back when I next edit a initial post. Maybe it was a one-off glitch that I experienced before.

    AN UPDATE:

    I followed the advice of hughes.chad in this support thread and I managed to successfully manually trigger a Daily Digest email, and confirmed that all emails had been removed from the Digest queue visible in ?sum=1.

    I tried again to send a digest without manually triggering it, and no digest was sent at the time it was supposed to be sent.

    I then added:

    `define( ‘ALTERNATE_WP_CRON’, true );`

    to wp-config.php, as suggested by Boone Gorges in the thread I have linked to, but again no automated Daily Digests were sent.

    So it seems that I have narrowed the issue down to the triggering of wp-cron.php.

    On the last attempt to check what was in ?sum=1 the URL changed to ?sum=1&doing_wp_cron=1340741443.4746210575103759765625, suggesting it was trying to activate the cron_job.

    What else can I try to get this working?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Members will not show up on the front-end BP Members page until they have logged in to the site.

    With BP, if you are logged in, you will be redirected to the home page if you try to visit the registration page. Try logging out and then visiting the registration page.

    I too am noticing this behaviour, specifically with apostrophes – I haven’t tested other special characters.

    I am using latest versions (WordPress 3.4, Buddypress 1.5.6 and BuddyPress Group Email Subscription 3.1.2)

    @imath. Hello, and thanks. I didn’t expect the overflow:hidden to effect the sub menus as they are within the #header div, but removing that did indeed fix this issue.

    Hi qylie/all,

    Yes I’m talking about the activity tab.

    I have investigated further as to what shows up in the Activity Streams.

    Both Streams: Creating Docs and Editing Docs

    In addition to this:

    On ‘All Members’ Stream: Posts and Comments on Blog

    On ‘My Groups’ Stream: Forum Topics, Creating Groups, Joining Groups, Creating tasks

    This isn’t a comprehensive test, just reflects the activity I have done.

    What I would expect to see is that on the ‘All Members’ stream the activity of all members on the site would show, and on the ‘My Groups’ stream all activity relating to the groups that the user belongs to would show.

    In addition to this, it would be good if all posts and comments on the blog show on the “All Members” stream, which is what I am seeing at the moment, even if comments are made by non-members (I haven’t tested this yet as the site is members only at the moment). If this is the case though, the tab would be better named “All Activity”, rather than “All Members”.

    Anyone else have any thoughts on this, or can anyone help me make sense of the content of each stream?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    @enderandrew Thanks! I’ll keep an eye on developments.

    Thanks. The only thing I have customised that I think would affect this is reducing the width of the sidebar to 198px from 224px. For some reason the tag cloud generated by sidebar.php isn’t respecting the CSS width of the sidebar. I am not sure how the font-sizes for tags are generated. They are set using an inline style tag, so there is no CSS class to override.

    @mercime Just to update, I have found that the issue with the ‘Tasks’ and ‘Projects’ view under ‘My Account/To Do’ is seen when using the Buddypress default theme as well as my child theme, so it would seem that this issue isn’t related to the CSS that I have used to move the sidebar to the left. Thanks again for your help with this.

    Mmmh. Thanks for the info. Doesn’t sound so good. BP seems to work well, but not so much the forum. I don’t have anything showing in my activity even though I have started a number of posts.

    I spoke a little too soon. This works for every page except the ‘Tasks’ and ‘Projects’ sub menus on the To Do tab for the GTM plugin. On this view the the sidebar disappears and the content appears outside the container as you can see in this screenshot. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? Thanks.

    @karmatosed Thanks for this. It works well except that I’d like the sidebar to be a fixed width, and the content to be a variable width (up to the max width setting). Is there any way to adapt your method to work with a fixed width sidebar?

    @phrees Thanks, I fixed the issue by using:

    `function register_head_scripts() {
    $url = ‘/js/backgroundPosition.js’; // Add the path to your .js file
    echo “n”; // Leave this line alone
    }
    add_action(‘wp_head’, ‘register_head_scripts’);
    ?>`

    @mercime Thanks, I checked out these articles, but this one looks the most promising for my needs:

    http://digwp.com/2011/11/html-formatting-custom-menus/

    Having said this the function in the article isn’t returning my custom menu. I added `if (!isset($locations[$menu_name])){echo “not found”;}` and ‘not found’ was returned. Any ideas on why this might be. I have double checked that the menu name is set correctly.
