Backend Admin Menu Problems in 3.1.x, 1.2.8
In two different BuddyPress installations, I’m having two different, but seemingly related problems with the backend Network Admin menu:
1. This installation was done under WordPress 3.1 and BuddyPress 1.2.8 a couple of weeks ago, and has since been upgraded to WordPress 3.1.1. The BuddyPress menu does not show up in the backend Network Admin though It must have at some point because I enabled the components that I wanted. Except for this problem, the BuddyPress installation seems to be behaving normally. In fact, if I manually enter the URLs that would be showing up under the admin menu, I can go to the settings for general, components, etc. In addition to having to keep those bookmarked, it also means I have a lot of difficultly with adding plugins that should be showing up under that menu. I have even tried reinstalling BuddyPress from scratch, deleting the tables and all the plugins, but that made no difference in terms of the menu showing up for a new install, and I do not currently have any additional plugins installed out side of BuddyPress.
2. This installation was done under WordPress 3.0 and whatever the then current version of BuddyPress was. The BuddyPress menu shows up in the backend Network Admin, but the admin menu for BP Group Management does not. I’ve checked to make sure what few plugins I’m running have the correct actions to be showing up under than network_admin_menu. The BP Groups Admin has been updated and would normally show up under BP Album+, but doesn’t show up even when it’s the only additional BuddyPress plugin enabled.
In both cases, I’m running WordPress Multisite using subfolders with a different blog defined as the BuddyPress root blog in the preferences…
define ( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 2 );
I’ve been beating my head against the wall on this for a few days and just can’t find a pattern or solution. I’m pretty sure it would be something simple, but if a reinstall doesn’t solve the problem I’m totally out of my league.
