Buddypress Submit Button Missing in “What’s new, Username?” Area. Can’t Update Status on Profiles or

    Here is my website with BuddyPress:
    First I tried deactivating a bunch of plug-ins that I installed recently with no luck.

    Then I found this:
    If you scroll down to Arkadia’s post you will see a fix that seems to be working for everyone. However, the plug-in suggested to install broke my entire website. As for the rest, I found the first part of the code in post-form.php so Arkadia is right that the button is in fact there, it’s just hidden. The problem is I can’t seem to find the buttons parent div #whats-new-options that Arkadia said to change:

    #whats-new-options {
    overflow: auto;
    height: 0px; /*CHANGE THIS HEIGHT TO 40px or whatever you want*/

    I’m assuming if I find this buttons parent div #whats-new-options I will be able fix it. Does anyone know where to find this, or do you need that plug-in that destroyed my website for that? If so, any other suggestions?

    the button is hidden until you click inside the textarea. JavaScript is used to show button. Are you using the BP-default theme?

    this still seems to be an outstanding issue with BuddyPress (at least for me).

    Terabrite’s solution did fix the problem for me. pretty painful thou.

    clicking inside the textarea did not cause the button to show. at least for me, using Chrome or Firefox.

    Probably a JS conflict on your site. buddypress.js has some code that expands that textarea when you click into it, which works in Chrome/FF out of the box normally. I imagine a theme or plugin is in conflict. Some plugins do interact with the post box using JS.
