    Really? Is this still the case with the new versions of buddypress?

    I thought that allowing avatar uploads in open registration installs was the default.

    If that is still risky, which solutions would you recomment, @mercime ?

    Hey @boonebgorges – I’d love to suggest a standalone import/export – doing all these database imports and exports is definitely not an easy task for the below-average user like me, who became pampered with WordPress turn-key solutions :)

    If you can share some light on the 3 questions I made on my reply to @aljuk that would be fantastic! Sorry to bother with these simple questions…

    Hey @aljuk – this was superb!

    I am a newbie, but a newbie with endurance :-)

    I confess I was puzzled by your answer, but then asked the support staff of my hosting company to help me with steps one and two you listed.

    But now I am stuck. On step 3, I understand I should use Notepad (Text Editor on MAC OS) to edit the wp-config.php file that I have downloaded doing step 1 (I’m copying the entire public_html folder using FTP).

    Questions:

    a) what are the specific modifications I should do on the wp-config.php file in my hard disk after the copying of the remote files?
    b) how do I create a new local database? With MAMP? Which configurations should be set for this new database (never did that before)
    c) how do I import the gzip backup of the remote database I made with phpMyAdmin?

    Wow. That was the fastest and best targeted advice, r-a-y. Many thanks!

    I confess I was very very afraid of screwing things up when creating the child theme, but I guess I did things right! Thanks for this advice!

    :-)

    thanks for sharing. Indeed, it is a barrier to user registration.

    In my case, I want to keep my network personal and do not need to expand a lot. I prefer to have a handful of people with a great vibe together (and the avatar is a key part on this).

    For that reason, in my network it pays off to turn some people off but keep the avatar as a required condition to do the sign-up (and I’d like to have it as an automated part of the system, and not have to be writing each person asking them to add the image post-registration)

    Since nobody replied, I assume this is a complicated thing, right?

    Newbie question: Maybe I can send this as a suggestion for developers?

    Hi Travel-Junkie!

    The checkbox to indicate acceptance to the terms of service is exactly what I want to do.

    However, I am a total noob in understanding the programming involved (like “actions”) for example.

    Do you have a recommendation? Should i look for a plugin for this?

    Or a link where the concepts you refered to are more easily understandable by me?

    (sorry, I’m a recent “ning-orphan” trying to find my way around Buddypress)

    @etiviti – the new version of the plugin appeared on my dashboard – thanks for this!

    I clicked on the upgrade plugin for the umbrella plugin of te Forum Extras and got this:

    QUOTE

    Downloading update from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/buddypress-group-forum-extras.0.1.5.zip.

    Unpacking the update.

    Installing the latest version.

    Deactivating the plugin.

    Removing the old version of the plugin.

    Plugin upgraded successfully.

    Attempting reactivation of the plugin

    Plugin reactivated successfully.

    UNQUOTE

    Do you think this can cause any problem?

    The buttons are appearing on Forum discussions of Groups -thanks!

    However the buttons do not appear on Group wire or when sending direct messages of one user to another.

    One great improvement for the future could be adding images straight from our computer, instead of using a URL.

    Cheers!

    How can I know if I’m on wpmu or single?

    I installed BuddyPress using Simple Scripts. not sure if this helps…

    Thanks, etiviti! I will be checking this page for updates. It is good to hear that this is not related to a bad installation or something I did not configure right on my side.

    When you have a new version, should I disable and then delete the plugin and install the new version?

    I have a similar problem on the sig admin page (I’m using version 0.1.4):

    Hi Etiviti!

    Thanks a lot for this – when I’m able to add the BBcode and buttons, it will be great!

    I still have not managed to do it so your guidance is much appreciated.

    Since I’m a newbie, let me explain step by step what I did:

    1. After uploading the zip file and extracting on my /home1/fromvict/public_html/comunidade/wp-content/plugins BuddyPress directory, I activated the plugins.

    2. After activation, I clicked On BuddyPress -> Forum Extras and followed the instructions to edit the theme on /home1/fromvict/public_html/comunidade/wp-content/themes/bp-default/groups/single/forum and add the ” <?php do_action( ‘bp_forum_extras_topic_links’ ) ?> ” code as instructed.

    3. This gives me the successful message:

    QUOTE

    BBCode enabled.

    This plugin will convert bbcode to html prior to database updates and is recommend for external bbPress installs.

    You may enable _ck_’s bbcode buttons via the BBCode Settings page but this might conflict with other textarea editors installed (tinymce, markitup) on the forum textareas.

    UNQUOTE

    4. When I click on the bullet item just below, “BBCode”, I get the following:

    QUOTE

    Group Forums BBCode

    BBcode Buttons

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function bb_get_option() in /home1/fromvict/public_html/comunidade/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-group-forum-extras/bp-forum-extras-bbcode-admin.php on line 29

    UNQUOTE

    Any idea of what may be wrong? Thanks!

    p.s. Just a (hopefully) constructive feedback: as a newbie, it took me some time to figure out that the groups/single/forum was located in the address I pointed out in step 2. Maybe other users like me have a similar experience. In that case, it would be good to have one simple phrase like “you have now to find where the theme is installed, generally it is a themes/bp-default/ folder under your BuddyPress installation”
