    WPMU 2.8.6

    BP 1.3.1

    Users cannot create a blog. Address on toolbar for create a blog is

    /members/USERNAME/blogs/create-a-blog

    Is this correct?

    Found it.

    For anyone else that has this problem, go into your Buddypress > bp-core > bp-core-adminbar.php

    Find create-a-blog and change it to create

    Your blogs can now be created.

    Bravo 1stAngel! Thank you for sharing. Took loads off “worry” time. Should submit this to Andy. Your solution worked perfectly in dev install with BP latest trunk and WPMU 2.9beta latest trunk as well.

    Thanks again :-)

    Finally back at it after a few days off for Christmas, and faced with another hurdle. I can create a blog but when I access it, nothing shows but a blank screen. I tried the fix suggested in this thread but it didn’t help (actually, I couldn’t even access the Create A Blog page so I re-edited the file as it was originally). I’m running WPMU 2.8.6 / BuddyPress 1.1.3.

    I’ve tried deactivating the most recently installed plugins, but nothing seems to be in conflict. If need be, you can see my efforts here: http://rspace.org/

    Any ideas?

    @ pcwriter: Did you remove the kubrick theme from your theme folder (standard wordpress theme). I had the same problem a while back, solved it by placing the kubrick theme back in the themes folder.

    @ xevo: Yup, I had removed kubrick but, even after putting it back in and making sure it was activated, still nothing. The blogs do show up in the Blog Directory and the blog listing of my admin dashboard, but nothing else associated with them seems to exist; no blog, no blog dashboard…

    OK stop.

    After much fiddling, I just found the problem (another duh! moment). I had a chat plugin activated site-wide which, somehow, had prevented any blogs from showing up. Deactivating and reactivating (not site-wide this time) solved it.

    Thanks again for your very quick reply!
