BuddyPress Default Home Theme gives blank page in clean install.

    I’ve just installed , Buddypress 2.8.4a, (using my host’s cpanel – so I assume it was installed correctly) and I’m using sub-domains.

    I haven’t made any admin changes whatsoever except turn on/activate the four themes that come packaged with the install and then tried to activate each one to check them out.

    WordPress ‘classic’, ‘default’ and ‘mu homepage’ all work fine.

    When I click to activate ‘BuddyPress Default Home Theme 1.0.3 by Andy Peatling’ my site shows a completely empty page with no source code in it at all.

    When I then go back to activate one of the other three themes the ‘BuddyPress Default Home Theme 1.0.3′ does not show in the activate window as the current theme either.

    Is there something I’m overlooking here as this is a completely clean install and I haven’t touched anything else at all except tick the theme boxes in site admin.

    Check your PHP logs for the error.

    Thanks. There’s nothing showing in my cpanel ‘error logs’.

    Would they be found in my ‘error logs’ in cpanel or are php errors stored elsewhere?

    Make sure you actually have BuddyPress downloaded and activated and you’re not just trying to activate the themes.

    Not sure what you mean by downloaded and activated?

    My host provides an automatic install of BuddyPress from my cpanel. I installed it from cpanel, set the site name and email then logged into the admin panel. All other themes work except your BuddyPress Default Home Theme. Its on the server in /themes/bphome and it shows up as a thumbnail in the ‘manage themes’ page but the site shows a blank page after I activate it.

    Now I do know what you mean, my host doesn’t include BuddyPress in their install even though they call it BuddyPress in the Cpanel. Weird, they have an install for WP, WPMU and BuddyPress yet leave out the BuddyPress folder from the install!

    Thanks, I’ll download it and install to server.

    DO NOT use installers other than default wpmu plugin installer. Install buddypress from wordpress plugin installer, or set it up manually with FTP/SSH.

    And make sure to activate the theme before you select themes. Which is explained in wpmu documents.

    Thanks.

    I got it working fine once I had the actual BuddyPress folder on my server. :)

    Time to have a moan at my host I thinks…

    Thanks for the help.
