Buddy Bar Not Showing?

    @nintendosushi

    Hello all,

    I’m trying to integrate BuddyPress into my site – http://nintendo-sushi.com

    As far as I’m aware, there is supposed to be a Buddy Bar showing, is that right?

    My very limited knowledge is that it should be calling the footer and I think it is.

    Can anyone suggest what’s wrong?

    Thanks,
    Ace

    There should be a WP toolbar showing unless you have said no in BP settings to toolbar for logged out users.

    If your theme doesn’t have wp_footer() in the footer.php file then toolbars cannot be displayed.

    Buddybar is a legacy toolbar, BP uses the WP toolbar as of 1.6 onwards.

    Thank you for the reply.

    The last part of my footer.php file is this:

    Is that correct?

    Thanks

    Looks right so you must have something else at work knocking out the toolbar, check through theme settings if any and functions.php.

    Did you read through to see is any functions existed that reference toolbars?

    I don’t download files from forums to my local machine, you will need to use a service like pastebin if you want someone to check it through for you.

    Sorry about that, I didn’t think. Here is the pastbin link:

    I di search for ‘bar’ and ‘tool’ and the only thing it found was something referencing the sidebar, but honestly, I don’t know what I’m looking for.

    Thanks again

    I’ve just had a look through the theme options and there are no options to turn on/off the bar. The standard WordPress bar shows when logged in if that helps?

    There is a lot of reference to bar in header.php

    You will need to add this to your functions.php file but it will overrule the setting in BP to disable the toolbar for logged out views:

    show_admin_bar( true );

    Probably needs to be hooked before BP does stuff so BP can override the setting if asked.

    Right, we seem to be getting somewhere :) Thank you.

    Now, the standard WordPress admin bar is showing, but no Buddy Bar:

    if you really need the buddybar you’ll need to use this instead:

    define( ‘BP_USE_WP_ADMIN_BAR’, false );

    btw this is available and much else on the subject of toolbars via simple search on ‘toolbars’

    Hey Hugo,

    Yeah, I did try searching, but being so new to all of this, very little made sense lol. I did find the info about referencing the footer and had already checked that but couldn’t find anything on my specific error, but I may have been searching incorrectly.

    I tried what you said and it still doesn’t work.

    This is how my functions look now:

    I tried having show_admin_bar( true ); before define( ‘BP_USE_WP_ADMIN_BAR’, false ); as well with no luck.

    I really appreciate your time.

    Same or similar problem. For logged in users, the WP admin bar is either replacing or covering the Buddy bar. Seeking solution that allows both to appear.

    I think this is bug for v1.7 because I do fresh install.
