    • my best suggestion is to try and reinstall WordPress and BuddyPress & bbPress manually via ftp.
    • If that doesn’t work, you’re best bet is to reinstall the most recent versions of those (before the upgrade of course) and then upload your most recent .sql backup via phpmyadmin to restore your site pre-upgrade.
    • Once your site is back online, you can check your server logs for errors and report them here for assistance in finding the core issue and a best practice solution to implement to overcome it.
    • Then definitely move everything to a localhost so that you can try to replicate the issue

    Also, when you try to replicate the issue on your localhost, try to upgrade without any other plugins activated to see if there is a conflict with any of your plugins and the update. You can also search for “buddypress + {your plugin name here}” for each of your plugins that haven’t issued an update since buddypress 1.7, as they could possibly be the culprit.

    I hope this helps and good luck with restoring your site. It can be stressful, but you’ll get it bud.

    @djpaul of course, you’re on top of this as usual, but have you heard anything from the plugin author about him renaming his function `bp_login_redirect()` so that it doesn’t conflict with the (now) native buddypress function with the same namesake? I notice that the plugin hasn’t been updated since 5-20-2012.

    Nearly 3 years later, several wp & bp updates and @travel-junkie‘s solution still works. Thanks for your contribution @travel-junkie. I appreciate it.

    Any news on the release of bp-media @foxly? I’m eagerly waiting for it’s release. I can’t seem to find a solid answer with what I’ve read thus far, and I’m hoping you could give me a rough idea?

    I finally remembered having an issue similar with a non buddypress installation about a year and a half ago on another new server…..drumroll please…..you guessed it…gd library. The stackscript used on my new linode didn’t have gd library in the stack, so I just installed it, rebooted apache and blam…all is good. You may mark resolved @mercime

    @r-a-y thank you for the updated link. Unfortunately, it didn’t fix mine. Hopefully @mercime and I can figure out something over in my thread to figure it out: http://buddypress.org/support/topic/upload-failed-error-was-no-editor-could-be-selected

    thanks again for hopping on an old thread and updating it for me, I definitely appreciate it.

    @mercime, thank you for the advice. And for starters, I appreciate all of the time you’ve taken for this one thus far… I did, in fact, forget to do that, though in doing so I haven’t been able to produce any positive results, except I DID GET TO actually use the cropping tool this time, so I definitely got a feeling of momentum.

    Here are the results from that…

    With default bp theme activated, an image can be uploaded and taken to the “cropping tool”. The cropping tool seemed to function as per normal, though once I make my cropping selection I get this error…

    “There was a problem cropping your avatar, please try uploading it again”

    I get this in all browsers, with all plugins deactivated (besides buddypress, of course – even the coming soon plugin).

    I’m starting to knock around the word “befuddled” in my head, as I haven’t been able to find anything that seems to work either.

    @mercime Thanks for the assist. Close, but not quite. Apparently I was at 2MB. I’m on a private server, so no worries, upgraded via php.ini and .htaccess Change is visible in wp mediau uploader upload limit.

    tested in the wp admin media uploader with a 56kb image (the same test image for all upload tests in this specific post) and all worked…until I did test on profile frontside.

    I tried to upload via the buddypress profile page and here is what I got.

    • 1. Was able to select an image.
    • 2. When I selected ‘upload image’ I got the error below
    • 3. Checked in wp-admin media library for potential image upload and none present

    ERROR MESSAGE: Upload Failed! Error was: No editor could be selected.

    Any thoughts?

    Just a heads up…..

    Unfortunately, @chrishajer has had his code stripped from this answer. Maybe @r-a-y can pull it from the db, as this thread was actually recommended by @r-a-y pushed a previous thread to this one.

    Thanks for the response @mercime. I probably should’ve mentioned that I already tried it with the ultimate maintenance mode plugin deactivated.

    Also, I should note that this is the error I get in Chrome, while in safari a large file gets the ‘too big to upload’ message and a small files does get the upload, though after cropping and saving the uploaded image, I get the ‘there was a problem uploading your image’ message.

    Sorry for not making all of this clear up front, truly a bad mistake on my part.

    Any other thoughts as to what could be causing it?

    @mercime, Thanks for the reply. I just changed my name, though for whatever reason that didn’t solve the problem. Any other ideas on what it might be?

    vegaskev, do edit your profile and change name to something other than your username

    I’m getting 404 when I try any buddypress related page /groups/, /activity/, /register/, etc. on your site.

    If you see this to be true as well, it might have to do with a permission issue on your server. I just had this the other day. And actually it could be several things if not that. What versions of wp and bp are you using? What other plugins do you have installed and list which are active and deactivated. As well, what is your environment? is it shared hosting, server, vps, etc.?

    I would contact ShareThis if you’ve removed all their code and still having the same issues.

    it looks like a social tracking hashtag used by some social media plugins to help you track how your content was shared through email/IM/facebook/twitter/etc.

    I have the same thing on a site that I operate and the plugin is ‘ShareThis’. If it’s not a plugin, maybe you installed a social sharing script via one of your files?

    I hope that helps.

    did some more testing to find the source. haven’t found the source, but when i have noticed that the notifications do show up in the invitee’s wp-admin bar notification icon, just not in the buddy bar.

    I’ve also switched back to the default theme and still no notifications in the buddy bar. An suggestions/fixes/ideas would be awesome.

    Thanks in advance.

    forgot to update thread. Yeah, I don’t remember what word it was, but I think I had a word that was pg-13 in there. my apologies for not catching that myself.

    @tarkham Not for nothing, but you’re also using the Vantage theme, which is still fairly buggy as I’m sure you already know. If you need help with Vantage, let me know, as I’ve been chopping it up and cleaning up some of the code for one of my own installs of the theme. You can find me on their forum and PM me at VegasKev

    @jjj John, you were completely right about my comments not being very helpful in my last post on this thread. I should have taken notes when I started seeing the bugs I saw in 1.7 back then, but I was all hopped up on redbull and was working on minimal sleep. That is my fault entirely. My apologies.

    Paul,

    I noticed on https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/roadmap that BP 1.6.3 is due to be released in 3 weeks with only a couple of tickets involved. However, after reading the ticket (which is closed) https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4713 regarding this issue, it seems as though the common understanding is that this is a WP 3.5 Requirement issue. Whereas, I’m running 3.5 and still having the issues.

    Don’t know if this helps or not.
