    In your example, what are the buddypress and the community paths? Are these separate sites on a multisite site?

    It’s a regular install of WordPress. Just want to be able to customise the buddypress folder name.

    I don’t understand what you mean by folder name. The BuddyPress folder on the file system is not used in that way. We have components at example.com/members/, and example.com/groups/, etc.

    Hmm, the one I’ve set up seems to use buddypress.

    The homepage links a username to /buddypress/members/admin/

    Is it unusual that my website has buddypress in the URL at all?

    Yes, wondering what you’ve done to get it like that. Have you got two copies of WordPress (http://processpedia.designquotes.com.au/ and http://processpedia.designquotes.com.au/buddypress/)? Or are you running multisite, and “buddypress” is a site?

    No just the one installation. Manually uploaded the WP files to the root web folder of the server, then installed the buddypress as a plugin.

    No multiple copies, no multisite.

    I did have one weird problem when I first installed. I was fooling around with ‘frontend posting’ plugins just before the 1.6 release of buddypress. The database structure broke which stopped the wordpress admin area from working properly (I think because the JS weren’t loading). So I deleted the database entries for buddypress then reinstalled and it was fixed. Then I upgraded to 1.6.

    I don’t see how this would cause the problem however.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Here is a screenshot of the folder structure via FTP

    This turned out to be very simple. The pages such as Profile were sub pages of a page called buddypress. Changed each so they had no parent page.

    So now the author bio automatically links to profile pages, but the theme is configured to looking for /buddypress/xyz
