Group forums working yet not working

    Yes, I have been able to get the group forums component to work and yet it doesn’t work. It works really slick on my dev box but I can’t get it to work on my live server. Go figure. Well, I’m not alone I guess. It isn’t working on testbp.org either. I tried creating a new group, enabling the forum for it and can’t post there either.

    Anybody succeed in getting this to work yet? I’ve been beating my head against it for the past 6 hrs without luck.

    i had a try without cookie integration just user :

    if i create a group in bdpress it appears in bbpress

    if i try the same for a topic post it is not (neither in bd nor bb)

    but if i create a topic in bbpress, it is shown in bdpress …..

    it does interact but not totally from bdpress

    This is exactly my situation and I still have my cookie integration intact:

    “if i create a group in bdpress it appears in bbpress

    if i try the same for a topic post it is not (neither in bd nor bb)

    but if i create a topic in bbpress, it is shown in bdpress …..” — bebopcool

    And then I took out all the cookie integration settings and still am in the same boat.

    This is so frustrating! Thanks for all the help everyone. I’ll keep checking back to see if there is more news…

    I updated to 721 this morning, hoping to get the group forums running. They appear of course, but won’t post a new topic – the generic message “There was an error posting that topic.” appears, which doesn’t help me troubleshoot. Reading through the thread here, I’m not much clearer on the solution.

    WPMU, BBPress, and BuddyPress all installed and running, with integrated logins (the whole salt thing).

    I’m wondering if I should have something different entered in the “Group Forum Settings.” I started with the ‘admin’ username and password, which is set to “Key Master” rights in bbPress. I then tried it with a different username set to “Administrator” rights in bbPress, but still no forum joy.

    Any pointers on this? I need a pinch more black art here…

    Trent – I’ll pay you money if you can get mine to work. For 2 days I have lost my ability to create groups and have yet to be able to add a Topic in a forum. michael@prattvoute.com. Thanks ahead of time

    Oh, my goodness! It is working for me! I can’t believe it! I have all the cookies set up, too. I updated to the latest trunk (727) and now it is working! You all have been the best. Thanks for bearing through all my questions and posts.

    i have checked something which is not so clear in bbpress (wordpress integration menu)

    1 – it ask to fill in information about :

    WordPress “auth” cookie salt

    WordPress “secure auth” cookie salt

    WordPress “logged in” cookie salt

    and then to check if those information are similar

    WordPress (wp-config.php) bbPress (bb-config.php)

    AUTH_KEY BB_AUTH_KEY

    SECURE_AUTH_KEY BB_SECURE_AUTH_KEY

    LOGGED_IN_KEY BB_LOGGED_IN_KEY

    in wp-config we always have

    blabla-key and blabla-salt available so what do we have to enter ?

    the blabla-salt or the blabla-key.

    2 – in the wordpress plugin for bbpress integration :

    The complete URL of your plugins directory. Leave blank if it is in the default location “my-plugins” in the bbPress directory.

    the default location is “bb-plugins” : so what we shall do ?

    i will have a see on bbpress forumsfor this

    I was, like most with this problem, able to create groups but unable to get a functioning bbPress to play nice with BP. Was hopeful seeing Wardeh figure it out but my install is regressing. I am current on trunks for both WP and BP but am still unable to create groups anymore. SO..Given that I have no data, I wiped the domain clean and started fresh and updated. On a fresh install, I can do everything as before…except create groups, leading me to think it’s not WP or BP, per se, but something I have set incorrectly somewhere. Any advice?

    Andy et al, I may have found your Groups bug (or one of them) BP doesn’t like when you create or modify (esp modify) a group with the News field empty. I can more easily repro the error if I actually populate the News field 1st, then try and change the group title or something, and delete whatever was in the news feed. Add anything back in and it’s fine. Not sure if this is related to the bbPress probs as I have started from scratch and am proceeding. Let me know if you want me to submit this as a bug. Cheers

    Victory. Start clean, stay clean. All works. The readme in the bp-forums folder was key. Thanks, guys

    Boy, I thought this was going to be a go until I got this: when trying to create a group:

    Warning: require_once(/home/ramona/public_html/wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-home/index.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/ramona/public_html/wp-includes/theme.php on line 822

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/ramona/public_html/wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-home/index.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/ramona/public_html/wp-includes/theme.php on line 822

    I’m logged into buddypress as the admin

    I just installed fresh this morning – buddypress-combo

    Fresh install of bbpress-1.0-alpha-4

    Fresh install of wpmu trunk r1574

    As a side note I also got an error trying to access user account, but I’ve posted that elsewhere here.

    It looks like it’s almost pudding, but not quite. What am I missing?

    Once again. You have a config problem. This is the same path you mentioned in another message as having a different problem. I explained there also that:

    /wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-home/…

    Is not a valid path for bp.

    The only thing under /wp-content/member-themes is /wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member/…

    what have done people to solve their integration pb between wpmu 2.7 and bbpress ?

    i feel so stupid with that …

    my cookie keys have been checked many times

    i added the cookie salt information looking manually to wp-config because a have an issue somewhere :

    in bbpress/settings/integration it tells that we have to got to the page :

    http://domain/wp-admin/options.php

    to get the information about cookie salts

    on this page i have those errors (both on new and update install of wpmu 2.7)

    Warning: array_search() [function.array-search]: Wrong datatype for second argument in /home/$$$/www/wp-admin/includes/plugin.php on line 1044

    burtadsit, I am totally confused and brain dead.

    Excuse my ignorance.

    Here are my paths:

    wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member/

    wp-content/themes/buddypress-home/

    From install instructions:

    Move the “buddypress-home” folder to “wp-content/themes/” and move the “member-themes” folder to “wp-content”.

    You should now have the following folder locations “wp-content/themes/buddypress-home” and “wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-home”.

    How does buddypress-home get in both paths? See, I’m brain dead.

    those paths sounds good

    Here are my paths:

    wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member/

    wp-content/themes/buddypress-home/

    usually do not put buddypress home in member-themes/

    have you tried bbpress and wpmu inegration ?

    Yep, I’ve had buddypress working fine until I started trying to integrate bbpress. I followed the instructions at http://trac.buddypress.org/browser/trunk/bp-forums/installation-readme.txt

    which were simply great. Everything is fresh. I’m wondering if the combo install is the problem. It does say somewhere to use the trunk of buddypress for bbpress. I got so excited seeing a beta though, just had to try it.

    Howdy people. I solved *my* group forums problem. I’m running on a dedicated virtual server account for mu/bp/bbpress. I found the solution to my problem with group forums. It might have something to do with yours.

    I’m having this issue as of 8/2012 with the updated BuddyPress Version 1.6.1 and bbPress Version 2.1.2

    I can create Groups and Topics but the Topics don’t appear on the site. What’s strange is it shows the count of Topics Forum and is putting the occupied space in the layout but they are not displayed.

    I’ve read through this thread but I don’t really understand many of the items discussed. If anyone can help me figure it out I’d be very grateful.

    Also, the Search box for the Forums and the Order by: Dropdown menu when used don’t display any results when I know there should be items listed there.
    Any Ideas?
