[Resolved] BP1.8-beta1 & WP3.6-beta4–Blank frontend when using BP default theme

    I have installed both latest BETA WORDPRESS & BUDDYPRESS BETA’s versions and after WP 3.6-beta4 worpdress upgrade I can’t get frontend when using BP 1.8-beta1 buddypress bp-default theme, I can work in admin backend, but I can’t do anything in frontend until I switch to one of WordPress default themes (to all Twenty Ten, Twenty Thirteen etc.) which perfectly works.
    pls. Help me to get back bp-default theme, I love buddypress bp-default theme layout, and I want it back :) I have deactivated all plugins- reactivated only buddypress plugin, cleared browser cookies, and I still see blank frontend page, buddypress bp-default theme worked well until upgrade, until I have via FTP manually overwritten all WP files except wp-config.php (I didn’t touch it, I let there old one).
    btw. I wanted to ask to some developers, does it worth to customize some of the WordPress default themes seeing that they work without any problem now?, I love bp-default design but if performance/optimization/speed/page load will be better when using wordpress themes I would try to design wp-default themes similar, I would start thinking switch to them.

    Hi 4ella,

    With my issue, I was getting the white screens on the backend. I forget how I fixed it, but it turned out to be a problem with my plugins/theme files and not with the latest versions of WP or BP. I would disable all your plugins one by one and see if that helps. If you are running a development version of your site offline, trying doing a fresh intall of WP and BP and adding your plugins one by one in there to see which one causes the problem.

    Good luck!

    I don’t have any plugin active except buddypress plugin, which I have several times deactivated and activated, I have also overwritten 2 times all wordpress files in case that some of them was uploaded badly, still no luck, it seems like those 2 beta versions don’t like each other, bp 1.8 is working excellent because the first upgrade was BP-1.8 on WP 3.5.2, upgrade from WP 3.5.2 to 3.6-beta4-24534 gives me white screen frontend when using bp-default, it is working well with all wordpress default themes.

    I just made a fresh test install of WP 3.6 beta4 and BP 1.8 beta 1 and I activated the bp-default theme and I can not replicate the issue you are having. Must be something weird in your database.

    Yes, something’s strange, it works now, I have removed my customized buddypress and I have installed the fresh one (I don’t use child themes, (I always rewrite only css file and pages) so I gave back all my files including functions.php bp-custom.php one by one and now it works again. Unfortunately I can’t say what was wrong, maybe WP 3.6-beta4 should be installed before BP 1.8-beta1 and not as I did on contrary :(

    Take a peek in your web server’s PHP error log, and tell us what the errors was. It should be fairly obvious if you read through the message where the problem was coming from.
