    I think the problem I’m having is related to Ajax. It looks (to my newbie eyes) like the buddypress ajax request is not working for some reason.

    In Firebug I see this on the site that has the problem:

    ajaxurl
    	"https://conflictcomms.org/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php"
    	
    bp_ajax_request
    	null

    But on my other site where it appears to work correctly I see this:

    ajaxurl
    	"http://olihaslam.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php"
    	
    bp_ajax_request
    	Object { readyState=4, responseText="\n\n\n <div id="pag-top" c... \n </div>\n\n </div>\n\n\n", status=200, more...}

    I don’t know where to start with Ajax issues. Suggestions on where I should start learning more about this would be very kind.

    Newbie questions:
    Is Ajax be affected by my site being on https and not yet having ssl certificate set up?
    Could Ajax be interrupted by s2member?

    I’d be grateful of any pointers or advice.

    Thanks

    “Also I have not been able to find a working link for the handbook to the ScholarPress Courseware. Does anyone have a working link?”

    I’ve not been able to find the handbook either. I’m hoping the reason for this (and for this forum being rather quiet) is that an update to the plugin is just around the corner.

    Have a look at http://coursewa.re/

    It’s hard to find any other info about courseware so I sincerely hope that when the coursewa.re project does launch it goes with a bang! This plugin looks fantastic to me and I can’t wait to start using it with the students and lecturers I work with. I know they’ll love it too as at the moment they have to cope with the nightmare Blackboard LMS/VLE…

    I figured it out :)

    WP/BP is installed on IIS (I’ve only ever dealt with Apache before) so to fix it I changed the permalink settings to a custom structure (see Settings > Permalinks).

    I changed the custom structure from:
    /index.php/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    to:
    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    thus removing the index.php bit and all works fine now.

    Very happy!

    Just a thought….

    Does WP/BP need to be installed in the root directory? It has been installed in a subdirectory i.e.
    mydomain.ac.uk/wordpress/
    The groups page is located at:
    mydomain.ac.uk/wordpress/index.php/groups/

    I’m doing this for my employer (a university) and I didn’t install WP/BP myself, I’ve just been given the job of configuring BP and populating with content.

    Thanks

    Hi

    Thanks for your reply and clear advice.

    I just checked and the pages are already correctly assigned to the BuddyPress features. And all the options are already active in BuddyPress > Components but still nothing shows on those pages.

    I tried making a new Groups page and assigning the groups feature to the new page but still nothing shows.

    Do you (or anybody else) have any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    One more question:

    Once a user has rights to post to the main blog, how do they actually start a post? Is clicking ‘Dashboard’ then ‘New Post’ in the top admin bar the only way?

    Thanks Hugo. Having only used ‘normal’ WP I’m still trying to work out what comes from BP and what from MS.

    @elangley – Thanks for the recommendation – it has done the trick, I think.

    Cheers for your help.
