BuddyPress plugins and theme not loading

    I’ve just finished installing WPMU on lighttpd, when I upload the BP files exactly as the readme states (plugins in /wp-content/plugins/buddypress and the bphome theme in /wp-content/themes), they do not show in the admin panel.

    I’ve activated the plugins menu, but when I go there they are not showing up. Also, in themes it says under ‘broken themes’:

    bphome/style.css File not readable.

    What could I be doing wrong?

    Yes Jeff, the home themes were showing up in the BuddyPress > General Settings dropdown.

    However, I’m not sure how good I’m going to be in the ensuing conversation as I’ve just done a fresh install of WPMU 2.7.1 and BP 1.0.1 and everything is working fine. Nothing on the server side has changed, and all permissions are the same as before. I’m putting this down to a mishap in the FTP upload last night.

    @honewatson Have you tried doing the same? Installing WPMU 2.7.1 and BP 1.0.1 from fresh? It may sort your problem as well.

    Hempsworth-

    Well, that is good news!

    Sometimes FTPing WPMU can cause permission issues. That is why some recommend that you upload the WPMU zip package and unzip it on your server.

    The issue is that files are owned by the FTP user which is not an issue for most people as that user is the same as your domain server user–your hosting account admin user. If you authenticate when using FTP and it is the same username and password that you use when authenticating your hosting account, then it should not be an issue. If you’ve set up a separate FTP user, then that could be the issue. With WPMU unzipped, each file that gets FTPed will have the wrong user/group name.

    Anyway, If you feel that your issue is resolved, then please set the light to green on top.

    hi, I have been reading this thread (and a couple like it).

    I too have having the same trouble with getting BP running. All installed as per instructions, thmes move as listed but getting the same error

    You do not have any BuddyPress themes installed.

    Please move “/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/” to “/wp-content/bp-themes/” and refresh this page. You can download more themes here.

    I have deleted all the files and re-uploaded them going through another install and the same fault occurs.

    In the Admin BP setting bottom left the themes it see’s are all in the WP themes – NOT the BP themes. Like above I experiemented by copying the BP member theme to the WP themes and the BP admin Select theme to use for BuddyPress generated pages could then see the bpmember directory. (but obviously won’t work from there.)

    I am use MU 2.8.1 and BP 1.0.2

    Really really stuck – driving me mad!

    I’m sorry that your having issues getting BuddyPress up and running.

    One request first: since this post is marked as resolved and is a month old, in general it is better to start a new thread as most people that can help you will often ignore posts marked resovlved, preferring to spending their time focusing on threads that still are unresolved. Please read this for more information.

    Concerning your issue, this is a known bug that has been discussed here. Basically, BuddyPress 1.0.3, the next release coming very soon, will take care of this issue. So, in the meantime, you may need to stick with WPMU 2.7.1 and BP 1.0.2.

    Also, before upgrading BuddyPress and WPMU, it is very important that you first deactivate all BuddyPress-dependent plugins. Then deactivate BuddyPress itself. Finally, it is recommended that you deactivate all other non-BP related sitewide plugins as well. Once finished upgrading WPMU, you then upgrade and reactivate BP. Then, you reactivate the other BP-dependent plugins.

    Thanks,

    sorry about the posting on old post.

    Since I already have WPMU 2.8.1 installed I may as well stick it out and wait for the BP upgrade, I’m quite new to WP and don’t want the hassle to winding back versions.

    cheers

    That makes sense. I believe BP 1.0.3 will be out soon.

    Hi guys, i have the same probleme

    You do not have any BuddyPress themes installed.
    Please move "/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/" to "/wp-content/bp-themes/" and refresh this page. You can download more themes here.

    What could be?

    mklcst, this thread has been marked as resolved. This means most people will not read any new replies to it.

    Your problem is a known issue and is because you are using BuddyPress 1.0.2 on WPMU 2.8.1. I am under the impression that an interim release of BuddyPress (1.0.3) will be released soon which will improve compatibility with WPMU 2.8.1.

    Thank you DJ Paul for your reply, I didn’t open an other thread because the discussion was the same.

    Ok waiting for 1.0.3 :-)
