    I just recently did a fresh install of Buddypress into a WPMU 2.8.4 installation. All is well for most sites, for Buddy Press pages, and for admin pages except that the home blog for my site is now unable to show its contents. All I get is an empty blog directory (the other working blogs don’t show up) and a link to my blog that recurs back to the same page.

    I installed Buddypress into wp-content/plugins/ moved bp-themes into wp-content and moved bphome into wp-content/themes/. I am using subdirectories for my blogs

    Any ideas? I think something is wrong with

    I forgot to add that when I go into the home blog admin and try to select a different scene, the preview states that:

    You do not have any BuddyPress themes installed.

    Please move “/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/” to “/wp-content/bp-themes/” and refresh this page. You can download more themes here.

    Although I definitely have those themes installed.

    Which version of BuddyPress are you running?

    If you’re using 1.1-beta, then the bp-sn-framework and bp-default directories need to be moved into /wp-content/themes/.

    If using an earlier version, then you need to move bphome into /wp-content/themes/ and bpmember into /wp-content/bp-themes/

    Also, more suggestions about how to tackle your particular error message can be found here:

    Just one note, if you get to the stage of deleting BuddyPress and starting over with its install, please make sure you deactivate it first before deleting it.

    I’ve done a complete reinstall of WPMU 2.8.4 and Buddypress 1.0.3 and still having the same problem. Everything works okay until I activate Buddypress. Then two things happen:

    1. When I go into themes (general themes not buddypress themes) and hit preview on any theme I get this warning:

    You do not have any BuddyPress themes installed.

    Please move “/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/” to “/wp-content/bp-themes/” and refresh this page. You can download more themes here.

    2. The front page of my WPMU site turns into a blog directory that does not recognize the other blogs in my site even though they are visible and accesible in the pulldown menu that Buddypress adds to the top of the site. I can no longer access posts in that blog or change the theme.

    I definitely did the moving of the folders so that is not the problem.

    Is it because I am using subdirectories and not subdomains?

    It feels like my WPMU install is looking at the wrong themes folder, could that be it?

    Really at a loss here thanks for the help

    1. Which version of WPMU are you running?

    2.8.4

    2. Did you install WPMU as a directory or subdomain install?

    directory

    3. If a directory install, is it in root or in a subdirectory?

    subdirectory /blogs/

    4. Did you upgraded from a previous version of WPMU? If so, from which version?

    fresh install

    5. Was WPMU functioning properly before installing/upgrading BuddyPress?

    yes

    6. Which version of BuddyPress (BP) are you running?

    1.0.3

    7. Did you upgraded from a previous version of BP? If so, from which version?

    No

    8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated?

    Yes

    9. Are you using the standard BuddyPress themes or customized themes?

    standard themes

    10. Have you modified the core files in any way?

    no

    11. Do you have any custom functions in bp-custom.php?

    no

    12. If running bbPress, which version?

    not running

    13. Please provide a list of any errors in your server’s log files.

    Not quite sure where to find those, will keep looking

    Thanks for your continued help by the way. I am suspicious about the blog subdirectory and think that may be related to the problem since there is already a blogs folder in Buddypress. I started to look for a setting to correct it in the Buddy press setting in the dashboard but couldn’t find any way to change that path to correct things. Perhaps a change in a php file?
