[Resolved] BuddyPress 1.7.2 Groups 404 Issue

    Hello!

    After a major update to BuddyPress (from 1.5.x to 1.7.2), I am having issues with my Groups page. I know that there were major changes to that section of code, but I can’t figure out how to make it work. Here’s a link to the page:

    http://aldenplace.com/community/groups/

    We’re running BP 1.7.2, WP 3.5.1.

    What I’ve tried: 1) Change permalinks, 2) Change themes back to BP default, 3) Revert to a database copy from prior to the upgrade, 4) Separately, revert to a copy of the BP-Groups and Groups (in themes) folders, 5) Try creating a new group which also upon completing the final step, hits a 404.

    I’m thinking it’s something obvious I’m missing, and any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance…

    RESOLVED: Found out what was going on. I have BP Gallery 1.0.9 installed on this site, and it has not been updated for quite a while (due to the requisite subscription that my client would rather not pay). After updating several plugins, I was getting an error appearing on a few of the site’s pages, so I suppressed the errors in wp-includes/class-wp-error.php. This, of course, removed the php Warning message, but it also prevented me from seeing the Fatal Error that should’ve been appearing on the individual group pages.

    So, summation: 1) BP Gallery 1.0.9 may not be fully compatible with BuddyPress 1.7.2, and 2) a 404 is not always a 404. If you have suppressed your errors and get the “This page can’t be found” business, allow errors once again and re-check.

    Lesson learned for me. Hope this helps someone.

    Similar question after installing 1.7 update inputs _/buddypress/_ in the group URL permalink which was not the case before – thus old groups cannot be found. Is this fixable?
