A basic question about the menu in BP1.2…

    Hi, I’m new to buddypress and was hoping someone could clarify something for me. I’m using BP1.2 beta with the default theme on WP MU 1.9.1.1. When I create a new blog at say http://mysite.org/myblog/, the theme has menus like Members, Groups, and so on, with the URLs http://mysite.org/myblog/members/, http://mysite.org/myblog/groups/, and so on. When I click on them I get a 404 error and the message “The page you were looking for was not found”

    I’m unsure of whether the links are supposed to be like this i.e. every single blog also has members and groups etc, and there is something wrong that is causing the 404s. Or if the links are just wrong and should really be equal to the global versions i.e. http://mysite.org/members/, http://mysite.org/groups/, and so on.

    Thanks, sorry for the n00b question :)

    PS buddypress look amazing so far!

    If you’re new to BP, i recommand that you use the stable version.

    One error is that you have probably not read the README and the forum;-)

    - Control the paths indicated in wp-config.

    - You can also set your permalinks to something other as “default” in order to have your BP working correctly.

    “- Control the paths indicated in wp-config.”

    Hi, could you be more specific about this, because I’m not seeing anything in wp-config that would affect this. Thanks ;)

    In your config file you should see things like:

    $base = ‘/xxx foldername xxx/’;

    define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘xxxx domain.tld xxx’ );

    define(‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/xxx foldername xxx/’ );

    define( ‘COOKIE_DOMAIN’, ‘.xxx domain.tld xxx’ );

    define( ‘SITECOOKIEPATH’, ‘/xxx foldername xxx/’ );

    define( ‘ADMIN_COOKIE_PATH’, ‘/xxx foldername xxx’ );

    define( ‘COOKIEPATH’, ‘/xxx foldername xxx/’ );

    You have to check each “define” path indicated by xxx something xxx

    The default theme isn’t intended to be used on hosted blogs on a WPMU install, so the links do break as you’ve found.

    Right, DJPaul !

    So it would be really nice to find your notice in the readme. ;-)

    “The default theme isn’t intended to be used on hosted blogs on a WPMU install, so the links do break as you’ve found.”

    Oh… I see. Thank you! With that information, I have now found this and will give it a shot (I guess it’s obvious, but I was just confused about how it was supposed to work):

    I was able to create a child theme of bp-default using the instructions above. I just imported the stylesheet, and copied header.php and sidebar.php and tweaked them a bit. Worked a charm! Thanks :)
