    I don’t know this theme – did you asked for help at theme forest, yet? (If not please do that)

    Hi Ron,

    first of all thanks for the compliment including me into ‘BP Folks’. So, I’m not part of the BP team (not yet…), I’m just an advanced user and dev for my own clients.

    There were big changes in the last development versions (both bbPress and BP) and the documentation is not up to date. The devs put most of their time in developing the features – it would be great if some volunteers would come up, advanced users, to complete the documentation (that’s a lot of work, too). Everything you find here is done by the devs and the community (including folks like you) and offered for free. Maybe you can keep this in mind when you are more experienced in a few month to please come back and contribute something to the community as well. Like answering here in the forums, writing documentation and so on ;-)

    To answer your question: On the bbPress settings page you can change the slug for the forums. If you didn’t change it, it’s ‘forums’ – e.g. yourdomain.com/forums/
    So go to your menus, set up an own menu, include a Link to Forums, save this menu to your primary navigation.

    all I see on the nav bar is Home, Activities, Members, Sample Page. Nothing about groups or forums.

    Did you activate ‘User Groups’ in the BuddyPress settings?

    please append to your groups directory url /create/ (e.g. http://mydomain.com/groups/create/ ) and see if you can access it

    Can you post a link to your site?

    With multisite I mean both sites inside of one installation: http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network
    There you can activate BP on the main site, then all the community stuff will go there. You can add another site (subdomain) and run your WP stuff there. But that’s not that easy, too. Read throught the linked page if this would be a possibility for you.

    Otherwise maybe the easiest would be just to switch completely to the new theme…

    If your theme has BP template files you can delete them, you don’t need them anymore (or if you did far customizations you’d have to go through the files for changes). If your theme is a child theme of BP you should take a look into your functions.php if you’re overriding something. In the first lines of your style.css is there something like Template: bp-default or Tags: buddypress?

    Did I get you right: ‘Community’ means the BP features like groups, members, acivity – ‘main site’ means other WP pages and your WP blog? So, no that’s not possible. You’d have to either enhance your theme or separate the site into community on the main site of a mulsitite install and the rest on a subsite.

    Does your theme have BuddyPress template files? Did you check using a standard theme (twentytwelve for example) if the issue appears there, too?

    bp_blog_description() is working for me.

    With BP 1.7 and bbPress 2.3 it became really easy. Just install them the usual plugin installation way (automatic through WP or via FTP).
    Best is you first activate BuddyPress, you will see a welcome screen with a direct link to the settings. Change them if you want.
    Then go back to plugins and activate bbPress, you will see a welcome screen again. You will see three new admin menu items (Forums, Topics, Replies). Got to Forums and add a new forum, maybe called “Group Forums”. Got to the bbPress settings under Settings -> Forums. Change them if you want – and scroll down to the very last option: Activate group forums for BuddyPress. Choose you’re Group Forum, save it. – That’s all! Now go ahead and create your first group via BuddyPress in frontend group directory.

    What do you want to do exactly?

    A. You can run a multisite installation with BP network activated. There each subsite can use it’s own theme, only the mainsite needs a theme that is comfortable with BP. But since BP 1.7 there should every theme be supported.

    B. If you wish to keep the styles of Tersus theme on your main site, but have to override some functionality – You could make an own child theme of Tersus theme and override it’s behaviour.

    Short answer: Yes it is. The question is how comfortable you need the language management (e.g. the connection of content between languages).

    The newest version of WPML seems to have the ability to serve domains for different languages. Did’nt try it yet. http://wpml.org/
    If not you could do it manually using WPML or qtranslate. Setup a subsite for each language and turn the preferred language for this site on in the site settings.

    Your question seems not to be directly related to buddypress. But if you’re looking for that – there is a plugin by WPML for buddypress: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-multilingual/

    oh how embarrassing! I forgot to change the database details in the bb-config.php after switching to another database, the name was to similar that I first didn’t realize… So, maybe this way I could be a help for others here. Do check your database details twice!

    I’ve the same problem. I’m still checking through my installation and plugins if it’s really caused by BuddyPress itself. When I know more I’ll write it down here.

    Oh my God, this was really easy! The answer is on the linked page http://codex.buddypress.org/extending-buddypress/bp-custom-php/, the code changed for 1.5:

    Code:
    function remove_xprofile_links() {
    remove_filter( ‘bp_get_the_profile_field_value’, ‘xprofile_filter_link_profile_data’, 9, 2 );
    }
    add_action( ‘bp_init’, ‘remove_xprofile_links’ );

    @boonebgorges Sorry I’ve to ask, just a short question: Do you think an update of your plugin concerning this problem would be possible?

    Could it be this page doesn’t run the current version 1.5.1, because in the development process these problems disappeared on testbp?

    or hide with css:

    .join-group { display:none; }

    the login data are wrong. maybe you can try with css.

    one tipp: use php comments instead of html comments, it’s much cleaner. instead of:

    Code:
    <!–removed <php bp_profile_group_tabs(); ?> code and replaced w/whats below—>

    use:

    Code:
    <?php // removed bp_profile_group_tabs(); code and replaced w/whats below ?>

    or:

    Code:
    <?php /* removed
    bp_profile_group_tabs();
    code and replaced w/whats below */ ?>

    A Login Panel. There are different Plugins that give you an alternate login widget, some let you change the text before and after.
