Blog posts mixed up

  • Hello and thanks so much in advance for any help you can offer. I have created a BuddyPress site that is just taking off, it is for a non-profit group I am a member of. I noticed that I could not update the categories in my own blog, nor access the posts through my dashboard(I have created 3 blogs on the site) I have a superadmin user ID, sunshine, and an Editor ID, handsun. The Blogs have all been created with my editor ID, but the edit a post link actually takes me to the blog the SuperAdmin created in the main site. The blogs are all mixed up.

    I did notice that I had chosen bp-default theme in Appearances, but when I looked in FTP, the theme was only located in the plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/ folder, so I disabled the bp-default in the Appearances section and copied the folder to wp-content/themes and then reactivated it, but no change. I also added the plugin quickpress, and activated it in Site Admin, sitewide, but see no change in the appearance of the backends of the site. Thanks again, Carin

    First of all, please keep the bp-default theme where you found it – in buddypress/bp-themes folder, delete the bp-default theme you uploaded to wp-content/themes folder. If you want to use the theme, you should create a child theme instead http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/building-a-buddypress-child-theme/

    BuddyPress doesn’t cause this strange behavior, but other plugins could have done so. Deactivate all other plugins except BuddyPress

    THANK YOU!! That fixed it!. It was a plugin i had installed to disable users who registered from creating posts until they were approved. I had about 10 spammers join the site in 2 days of allowing registration. Now will have to ask the people in the group to email me and I can add them manually. Any ideas on preventing non-members from registering? Thanks again, Carin
