    Hello together

    i’ve installed the buddypress extension and activated it. the Permalink Settings are set to “Month and name” (i uploaded a empty .htaccess file before)
    i’m new in wordpress but i think the extension is only active at the backend(/wp-admin) in the frontned i don’v have the menu bar with My account notifications…
    and also if i click on my profile link(/members/admin) it redirect’s me to my startpage (link to my site: beli.xn--lw-fka.ch)

    thanks for your help

    Why upload a blank .htaccess file? You don’t need to do this WP edits that file for you. If you do not have the buddypress default them activated that could be the problem. BuddyPress must have a compatible theme.

    i uploaded a blank, becaus if no .htaccess file exists, i get the error “permission denied”. now i checked the .htaccessfile and i only have this inside:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    is that correct?

    thanks

    You need to use a BuddyPress compatible theme. Just activating BuddyPress on a WordPress site is not enough.
