Classic Theme not showing blog

    I have WPML 2.9.1.1 and BP 1.2 but have installed the backward compatibility plugin and turned on the classic theme (which is marked “1.2-rc”).

    When I click “blog” (the button between “home” and “members”) I get a page saying

    “The page you were looking for was not found.”

    Other buttons work, plus blog posts (when I get to them) are there and listed website.com/blog/restofurl

    Anyone else seen this issue?

    The same here. New blogs are now created with bp-default theme. If I try change theme, I get the same issue that you are seeing there.

    I have the same issue. No blog tab.

    I have now tried this in 3 different ways, all with the same result:

    (a) a clean WPMU 2.9.1.1 and clean PB 1.2.1 install with backward compatibility plugin. No other plugins or data were entered. I see “hello world” in the new 1.2 default theme, I see “The page you were looking for was not found.” in the 1.2 classic theme.

    (b) ditto results in an install that had gone in as clean 1.2 then updated to 1.2.1 and also had experimented with a range of plugins and data.

    (c) ditto results in a longstanding BP install that had progressively upgraded from 1.1 and had various plugins

    Could a BuddyPress-developer-type-person please tell me if your similar clean install is successfully showing the blog in classic theme?

    Have you checked if you had created the different ‘blog’ pages for each language?

    @itoube I’m not sure what you mean. The install is unilingual English.and shows up fine in the “default” theme.

    I believe it was a misunderstanding, podictionary. I read “I have WPML 2.9.1.1 and BP 1.2 but have installed the backward compatibility plugin…” when you meant WPMU 2.9.1.1. I got it now.

    In fact, I am using WPML Multilingual CMS 1.7.1 (with WPSU) and had ‘blog’ tab showing up when using english but disappearing when shifting to other languages. Armandmorin said that he got no blog tab… He may probably have the same problem i had. So that explains my post above.

    Correct, WPMU (not WPML)

    only plugins I have are BuddyPress itself & backwards compatability

    to restate the problem:

    the classic theme creates buttons “home” “blog” “members” etc.

    the “blog” button points to http://example.com/blog

    clicking it gives “…not found”

    As BP 1.2 moved toward RC then release, I remember two things happening that might relate to this problem.

    1) Early on the classic theme was bundled with BP before it was moved to the backwards compatibility plugin

    2) For the new default theme, somewhere around the release candidate time the means of having the blog vs activity stream appear as the front page moved from a setting in the new default theme, to WP settings>reading

    I wonder if the second of these might relate to BP 1.2 not finding example.com/blog even though the classic theme creates a button pointing to that URL

    I’m having this same problem. Has anyone been able to figure out why the blogs index isn’t showing in the classic theme?

    No, and it’s irritating as hell.

    Where are the “known issues” updates when these upgrades come out? I’m sick up upgrading BP and WPMU every time and having to spend two days trying to fix stupid errors and stripping out functionality till it all works.

    For that matter – I thought when 1.1 came out, we weren’t changing how themes worked for a long time. Now I’ve got to go through and find out all the places where using the old theme has completely borked functionality. Anyone have a comprehensive list going? So far, using the inbox is out of the question, and the blog is messed up too.

    Have upgraded WPMU 2.9.2 and PB 1.2.2 but problem persists.

    I feel this is a backward compatibility plugin problem but there is no sign in the bug trac list that it is even recognized as a bug.
