buddypress 1.5 issues.

    Hi, I installed wordpress 3.2.1 and buddypress 1.5.
    Both were brand new clean installs.

    It’s not working as it should.
    I have no way to post into the activity stream or leave comments on anything in the activity stream.

    The post button is not there and when I click the comment button on an event in an activity stream, nothing happens.
    I can’t post a topic on a forum, I click new topic and nothing happens.

    I can create a group but that’s about all I can do.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I am a novice at this and would prefer to downgrade to 1.2.5 (the first version I installed and works for me,) if the process to repair my current installation is going to be complex.

    Thanks,

    Paul.

    I should have mentioned, I am using the default buddypress theme and I have no other plugins installed.

    It sounds like BuddyPress’s javascript is not loading properly in your browser. Do you have javascript enabled? Can you give more details on the browser you are using? Can you try with another browser or from another computer?

    Hi Boone, thanks for the reply.

    I’ve tried with 2 different FF profiles (latest version) and google chrome, all running on the same computer.
    I don’t have another computer to try it on.

    I rolled back to bp 1.2.10 (fresh install).

    Everything worked fine in 1.2.5 but the automated install to 1.5 failed so I started again from scratch.
    How would I go about fixing my javasscript issues if it turns out to be that?

    I’m willing to reinstall bp 1.5 and try it again if I can get it to work.

    Many thanks,

    Paul.

    It’s difficult to troubleshoot any issues without access to your site. Things to check:
    - is global.js being loaded in your document’s head?
    - when you open a javascript console (like in Firebug), do you get any errors when you try clicking on things?
    - is Javascript enabled in your browser?

    Hi Boone,

    Global.js is being loaded.
    When I open Firebug I get no errors when I try clicking on things.
    Javascript is enabled in my browser.

    BP 1.2.10 works fine, as does this site. (I’m speculating that this is a 1.5 install of bp?) So I’m unsure as to whether the problem lies in my browsers but having said that, no-one else seems to be reporting the issue so who knows?

    Is there a way to reinstall the interpreter in my browser/on my PC?

    (I’m guessing that Javascript is interpreted).

    I can give you access to my site but there doesn’t seem much point seeing as I’ve gone back to 1.2.10.

    Thanks,

    Paul.

    Very strange. Is *any* of the javascript on your BP 1.5 installation working? Places to check: requesting friendships/group memberships from directories; replying to private messages; the “read more” link that appears when you have a very long forum post.
