Does Buddy Press work at all ?

    Installed buddypress.
    Created the required pages ( including activate and register)
    The register page redirects right away to home page, as if the register page doesnt exist.
    The activate page is asking for an activation key , which is nowhere to be found.

    Of course it works. You’re redirected to home page when you click on the register page while you’re logged in. As for activation key/emails what’s your BP/WP version? Have you changed to bp-default theme and have you deactivated other plugins to check if issue is resolved?

    I am using the latest BP/WP versions.
    Right after the installation you see this activation page asking for an activation key. But there are absolutely no instruction on how to get that key!

    Trying to create a group, get the following message all the time: “There was an error saving group details, please try again.”

    So can’t create groups = can’t create a single forum.

    bp works , the problem is on your end.

    1) what theme are you using?
    2) are your permalink’s set to ‘postname’?

    I am using Tersus theme from ThemeForest (which is advertised as BuddyPress theme).

    My permalinks are set to postname.

    BuddyPress is installed , to create forum it’s asking to install bbpress.

    So the bbpress (without the BuddyPress) forum works.

    But when I go to the BuddyPress newly created pages (groups, forums,members) I get those problems. Can’t create groups, can’t create forum, can’t send private message to memebers. Error message :There was an error saving group details, please try again.

    When you upload an avatar, does the crop feature work?

    On the Tersus demo, I see the theme uses Jquery 1.8.1

    If Im not mistaken, BuddyPress currently uses 1.7.1 OR 1.7.2

    Some of the javascript features won’t properly work without resolving this conflict.

    TO see if your theme is the problem, choose the BP -Default theme and try to create a group and send a message. If it works fine, you need to fix your theme javascript.

    You should find it in functions.php
    Hit ctrl+f to quickly search for ‘1.8.1’
    Change it to 1.7.2 and save it. Then try to create groups and send messages with your new theme again.

    I changed to BuddyPress default theme and I got the same error (see the link above).

    Tersus functions.php file contains neither “1.7” nor “1.8”

    @gorod thats odd. deactivate all plugins except buddypress and see if the problem persists.

    Don’t mean to hijack but since that guy stopped replying I will step in and say I am having the exact same issue. All plugins deactivated with default BP theme.

    @kizzywizzy, BP 1.6.2 use wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.8.3

    @gorod, it seems that you installed bbpress as standalone forum plugin instead of using Group Forums. Anyway, both can be used, the only thing to take care of, is the forum base name. BP Group Forum use “forums” by priority, even if you use bbPress as plugin. So if you use bbpress, you have to rename the forum base name to something other as “forums”. See “forums > settings” to change this.
    Here’s a video for more explanation: http://labzip.com/the-definitive-guide-to-buddypress-bbpress-configuration/
    and something older, but good to understand on how all this works, on the codex: http://codex.buddypress.org/legacy/installing-group-and-sitewide-forums-v1-5/
