Can’t add friends, messages and notifications awfully wonky

    First of all, thanks as always to the amazing support system around the WordPress family!! You guys are great and I wouldn’t have gotten THIS far without the generous support and multitude of resources on blogs and on this forum. I’m posting after doing many searches and not finding a fix that applies. (Granted, I ain’t all that techie and I may be missing something totally obvious!)

    Here’s my site: http://www.openadoptionsupport.com

    I’m running WPMU 2.7.1 and I’ve installed it in the root of my domain at BlueHost. This is a clean, manual (not simplescripts) install and WPMU was working fine when I carefully added BuddyPress and then linked it to BBPress. These are the plugins I have activated (besides BuddyPress):

    Sitewide:

    Limit Blogs per User 1.0

    FV Community News 1.3.1

    NoSpamUser 0.7.2

    Not Sitewide:

    Akismet 2.2.3

    Contact Form 7 1.10

    Page Links To 1.8

    Subscribe To Comments 2.1.2

    I’m using the default theme.

    It’s been a rocky start but stuff is working for the most part now. However I can’t add friends. When I click “add” I don’t get any kind of ajax — I just get shot right to my own profile. So say I’m logged in as Dawn and want to friend myself as Admin (I’ve got Admin open in Firefox and Dawn open in Opera), I’ll click the “add friend” by Admin and get shot right to my Dawn profile.

    When I try to message by clicking “send a message” or by replying to a sent message, everything seems like it’s working but then when I hit send, I end up back at the “compose” page with empty fields. If I send a message from there by manually inputting the addressee (“admin”) it’ll work. Admin will get the message and (eventually) an email notification.

    Finally if I add something to the wire in a group and choose “notify members by mail” nothing shows up by mail.

    Error Logs (note: I have some other issues going on and some of these errors may be unrelated to this or they may all be one and the same — just trying not to throw EVERYTHING into one thread but I did up my php.ini memory to 128mb):

    Moominmama-

    Thanks for the detailed issue report. It is nice to see someone actually following the procedure!

    As I’ve seen one of your posts in another thread, I realize that you are aware of various issues that some people have installing WPMU on BlueHost. It seems that you’ve navigated far along the path and may be close to success. So, I’ll see if I can provide you with another step or two toward the finish line.

    PHP Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home1/openboo2/public_html/blogging/forum/bb-includes/backpress/class.bpdb.php:123) in /home1/openboo2/public_html/blogging/forum/bb-includes/functions.bb-pluggable.php on line 214

    The “Cannot modify header” error almost always indicates that there is some whitespace before the opening php or closing php tag. It could be in one or both places. Open up class.bpdb.php and look for the whitespace. It should be removed and the file saved.

    PHP Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in /home1/openboo2/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bp-forums-bbpress-live.php on line 425

    Are you running PHP4 or PHP5?

    @moominmama

    Looks like PHP5.

    Here’s something weird. This line?

    /home1/openboo2/public_html/blogging/forum/bb-includes/functions.bb-pluggable.php

    That’s pointing to an old bbpress install that isn’t connected to this install at all. It’s an old defunct site and the wordpress it was connected to is uninstalled. (Dumped the database, deleted the wordpress files.) Any idea how this install got it into its head to point something there? I’m going to go ahead and delete the white space but I have the bbpress for these forums in public_html/forums.

    Thanks for the help! :)

    Ok, never mind re., the direct to:

    /home1/openboo2/public_html/blogging/forum/bb-includes/functions.bb-pluggable.php

    I think that’s just people trying to access the dead site. Ok, back to digging in error files!

    OK, next action was to install firebug on my firefox. I think this is a javascript issue. I’m getting this error on problem pages:

    jQuery(“div#groups-list-options a”).livequery is not a function

    [Break on this error] function() {

    http://openadoptionsupport.com/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-groups/js/widget-groups.js?ver=2.7.1

    I’m not sure where to go from here other than to keep googling that error. I can see other people have this w/buddypress but am not sure how to fix it. Anyone have some javascript insight?

    Moominmama-

    First, off I’m tired and just thinking out loud here.

    Let’s go back one potential issue. Did you find whitespace before the opening and/or after the closing PHP tags?

    Next, concerning the livequery error message, I do not think that it is related to the issue in this thread. The “offending” code is found in widget-groups.js. I’m guessing that if you remove the Groups widget from your theme, that error will go away.

    BP uses version 1.0.2 of the Live Query module for JQuery. Maybe if BP upgraded to v1.0.3, which may then also require updating JQuery to v1.2.x, this error may go away.

    But, I don’t think it is of concern for your particular issue. Try removing the Groups widget and see if it disappears.

    Nope, removing whitespace doesn’t help.

    Other issues that I’ve caught include the ABC line above members/groups not working.

    And I can no longer post to the forum (I could when I first installed this).

    (sigh)

    I read through the long “Add Friend Not Adding” thread here:

    http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=1315

    since my problems seem similar but didn’t gain any insight.

    I’m hesitant to do another clean install ‘cuz I’m not sure how to do it without losing my members who are creeping back after I accidentally trashed our old WordPress site (not in the same place — this is a totally new installation).

    @rogercoathup

    ok, I have the same problems:

    Add Friend Not Adding and ABC line not working

    I also have duplicate declaration error if I try to use the media library (edit post… add media… media library tab)

    Have posted these separately, but not getting much feedback. Hopefully, both of us having the same problems suggests some common setup issue.

    What is the status of this issue?

    @Rogercoathup

    You have several threads in which you’re asking for support. These could all be related.

    http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=3000

    http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=3001

    http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=3002

    So, let’s confine this discussion to one thread. It will make it easier to provide assistance. I’ve posted a reply in the thread below. Let’s keep the discussion there for the time being:

    http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=3000

    If you do not receive a response within 24 hours, just post a kind reminder to pop your issue back up near the top. All the moderators volunteer their time. We have paid work that usually takes priority!

    @jeff Still no go. I’m going to back up my database and do a clean install again. I’m going to stop at the forums addition and double-check everything and I’ll let you all know. I think it might be the only answer so I’m just waiting ’til I have time to do it. :)

    @jeff:

    I’d already marked two of those threads as resolved, and posted what was causing the problem.

    They weren’t problems related to this.

    I have 2 unresolved threads open: the media library duplicate declaration problem, and the failure to add a friend issue.

    I’ve responded to your feedback on these in thread: http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=3000

    I appreciate the helpful responses from anyone on this forum (moderators and regular users alike). Thanks in advance.

    Hum. My mistake, I thought that I saw only one of your threads marked as resolved. Oh well. At least progress is being made.

    Well, the clean install fixed whatever was broken. I’m having some troubles getting forum integration going (it’s not seeing the bbpress files) but I’m not going to start that up here! (I may just wait until bbpress is more stable before moving forward w/integration since I kinda think it’s possible that’s where my problems came from anyway.)

    So to anyone having these kinds of weird ajax-y-ish problems? I recommend a clean install! I’m not going to mark this as resolved since @Rogercoathup may still want to be working on it — I’ll let him click the switch.

    Thanks for your help, Jeff!

    Oh one more thing! I think my issue before was that I was using a newer version of bbpress on my install. I didn’t realize that until I went back through The Easy Button’s integration instructions:

    http://theeasybutton.com/blog/2009/04/30/integrating-buddypress-10-wpmu-and-bbpress/

    This time around I used the bbpress he linked to directly and it was the old green interface. The one I used on the last screwy installation was a newer one with an interface much more like the current WordPress version. So that’s something else folks might want to try if they’re having trouble (going back down to an earlier BBPress install.)

    Working site is here: http://www.openadoptionsupport.com

    I was able to import users and groups very easily via PHPMyAdmin so I didn’t really lose anything with the clean reinstallation.

    I’ve got the forums installed, so that may be an issue… I’ll check versions.

    We have member data on the site, so I’m a little loathe to do a clean install… is there a back up / restore procedure documented?

    @jeffsayre

    is there a back up / restore procedure documented?

    Do you mean for bbPress? Since bbPress uses MySQL as the DB backend, as do the other *presses, I would look at the WP codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup

    @Jeff: no I was meaning for Buddypress – whether there were any catches to look out for, or whether a standard WP backup / restore would work

    @jeffsayre

    Rogercoathup-

    The standard WP procedure should work fine. Just make sure that you select all the BP tables as well when backing up! Before deleting your database, if that is your plan, make sure the backup worked.

    Also, remember that some files, such as media files, are not stored in the database. You need to back these up separately.
