    @vernonfowler

    Embedly plugin was conflicting.

    @vernonfowler

    Could have been any (or all) of the following plugins:
    BP Group Documents (ancient, don’t think I can find it online again)
    BP Unread Posts http://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-unread-posts/ (also obsolete)
    U BuddyPress Forum Attachment http://urlless.com/u-buddypress-forum-attachment/
    I haven’t reactivated any of these 3 and am about to delete them.

    It appears a case of too eager to upgrade without properly checking existing potential conflicts. Too much haste and not enough care in my excitement about 1.7 – my bad. Thanks for your support Paul.

    @vernonfowler

    I believe some other plugins were conflicting. Activating bbPress with only the BuddyPress 1.6.5 plugin active works fine. I will go through the 1.7 update before trying some of my other plugins to determine which were producing the conflict. Thanks heaps to Andrew Macdermid for working with me today to narrow down the problem area. I will post again with the conflicting plugins once I’ve finished.

    Do I need a clean bb-config.php ? I thought activating bbPress for the first time would create a fresh configuration file to the same database and user as WordPress. Really stuck on this one. Appreciate your help.

    Hi @djpaul
    Sorry, I forgot to mention this is not a multisite install. Just a single site, so no network to worry about. I’m tempted to download the old version 2.3 of bbPress and test that out tonight / tomorrow morning.

    @vernonfowler

    Can we add something smaller to bp-custom.php as the function in /bp-core/bp-core-template.php contains the option to modify BuddyPress excerpts:
    ` // Allow plugins to modify these values globally
    $length = apply_filters( ‘bp_excerpt_length’, $length );
    `
    I realise this would (probably) affect excerpts throughout the site/community rather than just in select plugins, but if that is what I want to do, what code would I need in bp-custom.php ?

    @vernonfowler

    @3DPeruna your solution worked well for me. Thank you kindly. The only difference I made is to include the wrapping `div` in my child theme’s single/group-header.php rather than mess with the plugin code itself (in bp-group-hierarchy-template.php). We already need to add the `php echo` into the child theme file so I thought we might as well slot the wrapping `div` there too.

    It probably is better still to use child-theme/functions.php and lever off the `bp_before_group_header_meta` action hook but this will do for now.

    I was originally looking for a parent group widget but this is better as it makes sense to see the complete hierarchy line of parent groups. Nice work. :)

    I also have the same problem. I am praying that with BuddyPress 1.6 on the way (soon?) and the proposed better working with forums (bbPress?) that we won’t need this plugin, but in the meanwhile it would be great to have this working with BP 1.5.x. Can someone help here?

    I can move to public and private groups but not hidden groups. Any idea how to include hidden groups in the option list?

    @vernonfowler

    So if using Embedly and BuddyPress 1.5.1, is oembed completely redundant or will it make a comeback for 1.5+ ?

    I have the same scenario as @netpat84 i.e. constantly accumulating achievements and points for 10 x logins. So far the re-occurrence only appears to be affecting the admin (me) so I’m not too worried but it is annoying. That makes 2 of us noticing the same problem. Anyone else notice this?

    I can check out Role Scoper but if there’s a way to hack the plugin directly, I’d love to hear from you. My attempts so far can bring up the quick menu but not access the “give” page.

    Same as Barmy Blue Man, I cannot edit/delete new links and cannot comment on links. Will need to look into this soon.

    To get the widget working with BuddyPress 1.5, in bp-links-widgets.php on line 7, replace `add_action( ‘bp_init’, ‘bp_links_register_widgets’, 11 );` with `add_action( ‘bp_register_widgets’, ‘bp_links_register_widgets’, 11 );` and the BuddyPress Links widget now appears among the available widgets.

    Thanks so much Gwyneth Llewelyn. That is change of admin() is important for so many plugins. For those wanting to fix the extraneous nav bar item (created for 1.2.x versions of BuddyPress) you’ll probably also want to comment out from bp-links-dtheme.php the following (about line 60):

    `/* this function and action is not welcome in BuddyPress 1.5
    function bp_links_dtheme_header_nav_setup() {
    global $bp;

    if ( !bp_links_is_default_theme() )
    return false;

    $selected = ( bp_is_page( BP_LINKS_SLUG ) ) ? ‘ class=”selected”‘ : ”;
    $title = __( ‘Links’, ‘buddypress-links’ );

    echo sprintf(‘

  • %s
  • ‘, $selected, get_option(‘home’), BP_LINKS_SLUG, $title, $title );
    }
    add_action( ‘bp_nav_items’, ‘bp_links_dtheme_header_nav_setup’);*/`

I’ll be keen to give it a whirl tomorrow. Thanks for the efforts so far :)

Adding `global $bp;` helped me in a basic conditional test. Thanks and I hope this old issue has been resolved.

Looking forward to multiple instances of awards/achievements. Keep up the great work Paul.

It would be wonderful to tie these capabilities to BuddyPress Group Admin roles. Especially the ability to give award type achievements. Greater autonomy within groups in BuddyPress would be brilliant. Any plans or hacks for this?

An old plugin but a good one. My only query is: how easy / hard is it to allow BuddyPress “Group Admin” and / or “Group Moderator” to create groups? This would be extremely useful rather than all the other options of WP roles or any other criteria.

I’ve got a conflict. I’ll have to check tomorrow which other plugin is conflicting. Testing on my local sandbox works fine. Damn.

Using BP 1.2.9 and IA version 1.0 I get an error on clicking the Settings link from the plugins list. The Settings link is pointing to myrealdomain.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=invite-anyone/admin/admin-panel.php which results in “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.”
I can access the settings through the Dashboard > BuddyPress > Invite Anyone and everything seems okay there, but my front end isn’t functioning at all. All the elements appear on a group’s invite existing members page but the quick search filter isn’t doing much at all and ticking the checkbox then submitting takes me back to the home page with no invitation sent either way. Please help. I love this plugin and need it working again for BP 1.2.9

I tried the fresh 1.1.9 version of the plugin today and upon activation get the error as follows.

Warning: array_key_exists() [function.array-key-exists]: The second argument should be either an array or an object in some_folders_deep/wp-content/plugins/bp-group-hierarchy/bp-group-hierarchy-classes.php on line 282

So I have deactivated the plugin and hope a solution can be found. Anyone got a working 1.1.7 version lying around?
