Can’t enable Courseware in new group
I’m sure I’ve had this problem before, can’t remember the solution.
Just created a new group. Latest version of courseware, bp, and wp. When I click on the courseware tab, it takes me to a page not found page.
Courseware is working on all other groups. I seem to remember having this issue before, creating and deleting groups and sometimes it’d stick and sometimes not…
Do I need to disable BP Documents, THEN create the group, THEN enable Courseware?
I ask because disabling BP Documents doesn’t allow for enabling of Courseware on a previously created group.
Thanks for the quick response, BTW. I haven’t looked too hard, but do you have a DONATE button anywhere? I sure am enjoying your plugin. It has helped create a wonderful learning environment in my online classroom.
Just created a new class, with BP Documents turned off, still get page not found when trying to access the Courseware tab on the group home admin section:
(groups have been renamed to classes)
Hmm, how did you rename the groups to classes?
Did you update the permalinks structure?
The issue is definitely caused by rename of the groups slug, thats why i need you to ask about how you did that.
P.S.: The donate button is in the menu near forum.
I set the classes component to a page named Classes in the BuddyPress installation (new in 1.5). I still have in my bp-custom.php file this line:
`define ( ‘BP_GROUPS_SLUG’, ‘classes’ );`
The permalinks structure is a pretty permalink, not the old – are you suggesting I flush them and see if that solves the issue?
The new BuddyPress, doesn’t use that anymore. Just rename the page you mapped groups from wp-admin.
P.S.: Thanks for the donation, kindly appreciated!
Yeah, that’s kind of what I thought. I took that line out of bp-custom.php
Still can’t install Courseware in new groups but I’ll assume that’s a plugin conflict and see if I can find it. Will report back here.
As for the donation, you’re welcome. Your plugin is a good one and well supported It’s worth it.
Yes, that’s how I’ve got things set up. Disabling BP Documents doesn’t affect inability to activate Courseware in recently formed group. If I enable global courseware, I can go in to the courseware tab on that group and edit the course information. It’s just this URL that doesn’t work, and it turns out it doesn’t work for ANY of my groups:
Sorry to sound dense, but was there ever any resolution to this, or did I miss it above?
BTW I do have courseware in every group – I want to DISable it in some groups. Can’t do this because of the page not found error.
@peeld, whats the BuddyPress + Courseware version you are using?
I am very nervous about upgrading anything – not that courseware or bp or wp will break, but that something ELSE will come in to conflict
I’m also experiencing this problem with BP 1.5.4, Courseware 0.0.5 and WP 3.3.1
*Update*: Solved by changing the page slug for ‘grupos’ to ‘classes’. Mine was a localized (es_ES) wordpress.
I wonder if there’s a way to customize this?
*Update II*: Fixed this way: Installed “Page Links To” plugin, and created an empty page “Classes” (with /classes slug), which redirects to my groups page. And it worked like a charm!
Yeah, I’ve already done that – BP is already using a custom page for ‘classes’ – you shouldn’t need the ‘page links to’ plugin any more…?
I have gone through the video at Coursewa.re and do not see where I have done anything wrong. I have set it up as instructed. Please help
I still cannot DISable courseware on an existing group. I have deleted the BP Group Documents plugin (the one not by Boone Georges), but still have Boone’s BP Docs running. I have BP 22.214.171.124 and WP 3.3.1.
Please, can you help? I would really like to have Courseware on some groups and NOT on others. When I try to go in to my group, in the admin tab, and click on courseware (which I’ve renamed Assignments), it takes me to this url:
and that is a page not found.
I try changing classes to groups, still doesn’t work. I try changing courseware to assignments (thinking it’s a localization issue as I’ve renamed courseware to assignments), that doesn’t work. Please help and thanks in advance
BTW the video at Coursewa.re does not address this issue, I have watched it already
I deactivated the following plugins to see if any were causing a conflict, no help:
BP Docs (Boone’s)
BP Edit Group Slug
BP Group Email Subscription
