Home theme not working

    @citizenjake

    I’ve followed the readme install file but I’m having some problems getting the default Buddypress Homepage to work. Right now, as you can see if you visit, wearelabor.com, the homepage theme is activated but it doesn’t look like there’s any css working on it.

    I’ve got /buddypress-home in the wp-content/themes/ folder. What am I missing?

    Also, incidentally, the member-themes didn’t show up/work until I moved them from the wp-content folder to the wp-content/themes/.

    Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

    To be clear I’m using the latest WPMU and r658 of BuddyPress. Also, though I said above member-themes didn’t work when I followed the readme instructions and so I moved it to wp-content/themes/, I’ve since moved it back to follow the readme instructions exactly. Things still not looking right. Help?

    Try increasing the permissions on the home theme css file (http://wearelabor.com/wp-content/themes/buddypress-home/style.css)

    Hmm that worked a little. Things are a little less busted up, though still kinda screwy as you can see if you visit. Any more ideas?

    It’s entirely permissions. Make sure everything in the theme and any JS/CSS in buddypress is 755.

    Thank you Andy for taking time out from getting the beta release ready to help. Your help was spot on. I’m wondering why all the permissions weren’t set at 755 to begin with. I’m going through individually setting them to the right levels but its quite painstaking.

    I am still having this problem on my site:http://bloggerhistory.com. I have gone through and changed all buddypress files to 755.

    All that after a *Fresh install of the latest versions of both WPMU & Buddypress. Did I miss anything else?

    @bloggerhistory Check the permissions in /wp-content/themes/buddypress-home/css

    Those 3 files and the css dir should be 755.

    those are set to 755. I literally went through every single file twice and all buddypress files are 755.

    You seem to have mu configuration problems. None of your subdomains can be reached. It’s best to get mu setup, configured and working properly before installing bp. Test mu blog creation and reachability, create and edit posts, make comments. Get comfortable with mu first.

    It will make installing and configuring bp a whole lot easier. I played with mu for a month before I felt comfortable with it.

    What type of host are you on? Shared, DV? Looks like you need to do some DNS tweaking for your subdomains to work.
