    OK, so far there’s no clearly stated way to change the Group slug.

    Getting a bit desperate, I went and changed the slug in the database. Now, that works just fine, though the links to previously posted content is still using the old slug, and I can’t edit the group description because it uses the old slug as well. I’d be fine with the former, just can’t do without the latter.

    I posted a note
    - In the front end Activity feed at 3:40 pm (correct time)
    - Dashboard > Activity shows 10:40 am (5 hours backwards)

    Someone posted a note
    - In the BBpress forum at 10:59 am (correct time)
    - Front end Activity feed shows 3:59 pm (5 hours forward)
    - Dashboard > Activity shows 10:59 am. (correct time)

    Any update on what Facebook plugins work best? We never did install one because none seemed to cover Facebook/Twitter/Google at the same time, so we decided to just use Facebook.

    Is it possible to have the plugin be compatible with a BuddyPress registration page where we have additional required questions, like zip code, etc for instance? Here’s what we have right now: destinationli.com/register.

    bbPress is a separate plugin – bbpress.org. We have the BuddyPress 1.6.5 forums on our site without the bbpress plugin installed, and they seem very dated IMO.

    It would be nice to have this all explained in one definitive document though, as we’re not clear what we have to do to maintain the most up-to-date forums.

    Thanks Henry, I’ll have our developer take a look, I’m assuming he’ll know which file it is.

    I also don’t want to give a receptionist admin access just so they can record the number of registrations.

    I think it should be a choice either way, that’s all. There is no one way to do something.

    Our members have a goal of reaching a hundred members, and they’d like to know. A registration nets other benefits, it doesn’t necessarily need everyone who registers to have to use the site.

    I’m finding this selective accounting has been confusing to too many people. Is there any way to have the counter display the number of registered Users?

    Thanks Henry, they’re all approved. I even have a plugin called Unconfirmed to verify any that slipped through BuddyPress unactivated.

    The same thing for registering – see bristolrising.com/register. Notice how changing the privacy choices for ‘Do you work or have worked within an hour of Bristol? (required)’ doesn’t affect that field, but the one above it?

    Thanks @bphelp, that’s a great option. I’ll have to work on getting the text for that significantly smaller now! See the two options: http://coolurbanhousing.com/register where the BP Xtra Signup formatting is more in line with how one normally sees it (subtle) on a registration page.

    Thanks r-a-y, turns out it’s a setting in BP Xtra Signup. It looks like that plugin hasn’t been updated in two years and doesn’t work with newer versions of BuddyPress anymore.

    I posted a straightforward book link on Amazon.

    My greatest regret is that the people working on the gamification elements of BuddyPress 1.8, nor anyone else reading the forum, benefitted from knowing that this newly published resource even exists.

    Thank you for reinstating my account.

    How does one unresolve an issue? I’m actually worse off than I was :( Rather than have secondary fields appear only on the profile page, they’re not appearing anywhere at all.

    I actually want to keep the registration page as is, otherwise it’s too overwhelming. It’s the profile page that I want the secondary group fields to show up on.

    @tux-kapono

    Actually, how does one get the secondary profile field group to show up in the member’s profile area, ideally on the same page as the base group? It’s only showing the base group on both the registration page (desired) and the profile page (needs both).

    My developer is trying to use Nextend Connect, separate plugins each for Facebook, Twitter, Google. Anyone try them? I’m not sure the individual ratings are real, but they’re pretty glowing: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=nextend+connect

    From WordPress forum:

    “so i have not encountered any problems with wsl with bp and if there is its pretty much manageable via the settings. but it would be epic if wsl will be officially be compatible with bp.”

    What does it mean to be BuddyPress compatible anyway? Why is it that the best plugins, SocialAuth-WordPress, WordPress Social Login, AddThis Social Sign In aren’t ‘BuddyPress optimized’?

    I’m having a developer implement one of these for our site, and I’d be glad to share what we needed to do to ensure that we have a registration form with a few required fields, and existing users can use this service as well.

    Unfortunately none of these really stand out for a Facebook/Google/Twitter option:

    BuddyPress compatible
    LoginRadius – External service. Customizing registration page requires $49/mo. option.
    WP-FB-AutoConnect – Facebook only. Creates duplicate users?
    BuddyPress Facebook Connect+ – Facebook only. $30 (3-months) to $99 (year) to update plugin.
    OneAll Social Login – Not customizable. Free up to 2500 users.

    Not designed to be BuddyPress compatible
    SocialAuth-WordPress
    WordPress Social Login
    AddThis Social Sign In

    Thank Roger,

    It took a month to get a response from the developer, thus me trying to figure it out in the meantime. Their answer:

    “Yes, this is in fact because i’m generating a random username for users
    (since we don’t want them to use it anyway.) But you can modify the code,
    which is somewhere in the gantry framework – buddypress plugin folder, and
    generate it from the display name or whatever. I just wanted to make sure
    there were no invalid characters in it.”

    This is the URL I get when clicking on a user via /activity/: http://sourcethestation.com/members/d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e4ffcb0045875362219/
    This results in a 404.

    This is the URL I get from the same user when clicking on their name via /members/:
    http://sourcethestation.com/members/dbel/
    This results in the correct page.

    This is what shows up under username in the Dashboard: d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e4ffcb0045875362219

    We do have it set up so that the email is the username, and no one has to enter a username when registering, only an email address.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
