Empty Profile Page

    I’ve recently just set up BuddyPress and was beginning to alter the colors etc – nothing major. Once everything was up and running I created a non-admin user to test the site out and see how the general user would see it.

    I have about 8 profile fields and they all worked, but they sent the default message to the email address even though I updated it via wp-admin.

    Then I clicked on Home, or the name of the person under “Feature Profile” or “Members” and it brings me to an empty page that says “Edit this entry.” – which when I click it just reloads the page. No changes.

    I’m extremely new and not great with php, but I’m learning and would appreciate any thoughts on what might be causing this.

    Thanks in advance!

    Okay, a few questions:

    1. Which versions of WPMU and BuddyPress are you running?
    2. You say that you were “beginning to alter the colors”. I assume you’re using the default BuddyPress themes and you only worked with the CSS files. Is that true? Or, did you make changes to some of the php files as well?
    3. Are you running this on localhost or a remote site?

    1. Which versions of WPMU and BuddyPress are you running? WMU 2.7.1 – The latest BP, just downloaded it yesterday.

    2. You say that you were \”beginning to alter the colors\”. I assume you\’re using the default BuddyPress themes and you only worked with the CSS files. Is that true? Or, did you make changes to some of the php files as well? I added some copywrite info to the footer.php – but other then that I only touched the css of the default template.

    3. Are you running this on localhost or a remote site? Remote site, IPower.com.

    Does that help? Thanks a bunch.

    what do you mean by this?

    I have about 8 profile fields and they all worked, but they sent the default message to the email address even though I updated it via wp-admin.

    I made 8 custom profile text fields, like City, Company, Title etc. They “worked” as in when a user goes to the signup page they show up and get filled out they way they are supposed to.

    The default email thing is in the WMU options where you can automatically send an email to folks who sign up. The default value is something like “Thanks for signing up for your blog… etc”. I changed it to “Thanks for creating your profile… etc” in the settings. However the email I got when I created a subscriber account was the original blog one.

    Hope that clarifies it.

    Did you also make 8 blogs when you created those accounts? Or only user accounts?

    I think we might be thinking of different things. I was just saying I used the “Profile Fields” option under the “Site Admin” drop down in wp-admin to add a few more fields beyond just name and email (the defaults).

    There are only two users so far – “admin” (where I alter stuff) – and a basic user account I made just to test out the site and see if from the subscriber standpoint – not admin.

    However on the page that should load up a users profile, including their name, avatar, etc – it loads the header, footer, sidebar, but in the “content” area it just says “Edit this entry.” with a link that just refreshes the page.
