    Sounds like a good place to start figuring out the problem… how do I know the answer to your question?

    Awesome Jeff, thank you that was very helpful

    John, can you clarify the use of old news functions – the theme is upgraded; everything is now at its most recent version

    Side conversation – it is possible to replace the default avatars with something custom? Not Gravatar but our own folder of images from which to randomly apply avatars?

    Been a while since I’ve been back here; nice to see so much progress has been made!
    Going through an overhaul and update of our BP setup and I’m curious if this was ever built into the codebase. Can Buddypress be applied, easily, across domains?

    This is strange, must have been hacked right? I wake up to find this sting at the top of our site with the template not working:

    Add that it includes a link to this very forum?? What’s going on?

    I’ve got our developers looking at this thread but any other insight you can shed is most appreciated.

    I suppose I should take it as a good sign that my site got hit with the spam first? :P

    I’m on 2.8.6 and 1.1.2

    Thanks both, reading the wordpress posts and your thoughts Nexia, I’m sure the cause is general security and not versioning

    Thanks Millions David, that’s the clarification I needed. I’d love it if Shopify worked; I’ve had the same experience with it being best in class IF all you want/need is a store. Zevo, other suggestions are GREATLY appreciated. I’ll take a look and maybe we keep this thread going to share best practices.

    Great thread, if I could add, I’d really like to see the themes section of buddypress built out (http://buddypress.org/extend/themes/). I appreciate and agree that it is hardly a priority but have there really only been 2 themes created in the past year??

    @seobrien

    Not sure if this is why the instructions suggest as much but there are search optimization considerations

    Each subdirectory in your architecture is a level of less importance in the eyes of a search engine. Putting everything below root.com/blog/post tells the engines that post is less important than /blog/ which is less important than root.com

    subdomain.root.com adds more weight to the relevance of a page to keywords.

    That said…

    subdomain comes with its own unique challenge of being considered a distinct site from root.com or othersubdomain.root.com. That can work for you and against you depending on how you structure the site overall and how you link within the site to each section.

    Thanks; over my head, I haven’t even figured out how to get an svn branch

    Any recommendations on folks to hire for such a task? I can hack things together but those changes are out of my reach considering I don’t know where to start learning.

    I have another, perhaps more complex project beyond this. I’d like to get the same instance of BP working across domains to another site. I’ve talked to a few who think its possible but have yet to track down someone capable and available.

    I am too confused

    ShareThis is a 3rd party app, a javascript on the posts. I’m on boruma.com on two different computers without a problem.

    My response meant that I assumed sharethis was a problem at the time (their server down as you implied) as I am not having problems now.

    Regardless, I’ve disabled the plugin so ShareThis is off. Still inaccessible?

    @seobrien

    I’m on RC1 with MU 2.7 (sharethis must have been on their end, I’m not having problems)

    Figured out the the /category/ permalink issue was that it wasn’t identifying the /blog/ slug so when you use the custom permalink, it tries to pull root.com/category/post instead of root.com/blog/category/post

    Might that be the problem? I’d love to upgrade with the trunks but have no idea how to do so.

    That said, these were posts with comments with which I changed the permalink. But that shouldn’t cause problems (at least, it doesn’t in WP) and new posts don’t work either.

    Somewhat agree, is there a feature request for something like this?

    Invite shouldn’t be possible without acknowledgment as those group members are then subject to posts, messages, etc. HOWEVER, admin should be able to invite any one to any group without being friends. The group functions isn’t exactly intuitive to people that aren’t savvy with the internet so being able to send members invites to appropriate groups to pull them along a little is a good idea.

    Having worked through the thread, my understanding is that this is the set of directions to follow in RC1 yet it failed to change anything:

    1. Write in new language to msgstr within buddypress.pot and save as buddypress-spots.mo (wp-content/mu-plugins/bp-languages/buddypress-spots.mo)

    msgid “Group Wire”

    msgstr “Group CHANGED”

    2. Create custom file bp-custom.php (wp-content/mu-plugins/bp-custom.php) as such:

    <?php

    define( ‘BPLANG’, ‘spots’ );

    if ( file_exists( BP_PLUGIN_DIR . ‘/bp-languages/buddypress-‘ . BPLANG . ‘.mo’ ) ) {

    load_textdomain( ‘buddypress’, BP_PLUGIN_DIR . ‘/bp-languages/buddypress-‘ . BPLANG . ‘.mo’ );

    }

    ?>

    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    so I’m on RC1 and can confirm that I’m getting this bug; with more than one user

    I don’t know how to investigate or report beyond that; happy to show someone

    @Lance

    Are there a revised set of steps to this?

    On the latest trunk, I don’t have: wp-content/mu-plugins/bp-custom.php
