    BP V1.5.3.1 installed but did not immediately initiate the installation wizard.

    How do I restart the installation wizard?

    Thanks for your help.

    Go to dashboard menu Plugins > Installed panel. Deactivate, then delete, then re-install BuddyPress and Activate. Before doing that, go to menu Settings > Permalinks and set to other than default/ugly permalink.

    @mercime,

    Thank you so much for your response. I read some of your insightful comments and thought about writing you a PM earlier today. I did not in order to respect your time.

    I’m using WP 3.1.1,Genesis 1.8 and Genesis Connect 1.1 with an AgentPress v 1.0 Child Theme. It turns out I thought it through and followed your advice on my own, though I didn’t do all the manual code deletions.
    Upon re-install, I still didn’t get the wizard to display or launch. Accordingly, I followed the outline provided by the link and completed the process manually.

    At this point, members are loading, activity stream is posting, and I have posted 10 forums in the group forum page.

    Missing are any data or forms on the register page. Activate ask for an activation key that I assume comes from an email. I don’t know how to create the log in for the register page????

    Should I update to AgentPress 2.0 as a possible solution.

    Thanks for any further help you may be kind enough to offer.

    @AtlantasRealtor I would say backup database as always. Go to the lowest common and successful denominator by changing theme to Twenty Eleven and deactivating all plugins first.
    - Given that, when you activate BuddyPress, do you now see the Installation Wizard link under the admin bar?
    - If you do not see the the wizard, at this stage change to bp-default theme.
    - Do you see the BuddyPress menu at the bottom of all other dashboard menus? If so, go through each one of those panels and configure.

    - Yes, it is logical to make sure that your theme and connect plugins are compatible with latest WP and BP versions. However, I recommend not activating Genesis child theme nor Genesis Connect until you have BuddyPress working properly
    - Btw, is this a new installation or is this an upgrade from previous WP version?

    @mercime,

    WP installation and BP installation is about 6 weeks old. A consultant backed out of an attemped BP install and then installed Simple Press. That experiment did not turn out well at all. I deactivated and uninstalled SimplePress last week and started the BP install after full updates of WP and all plugins. Last step before BP was the install of Genesis Connect. After the BP install came on screen WITH the wizard displayed, I was interrupted for about 3 hours. An attempt to recover the Firefox screen was not successful. I am now using Panorama Tab Grouping to good effect with Sessions Manager.
    I doubt I lose a screen in the future.

    Thanks so much for your help. I worked at the office until 8:30 PM EDST. Thanks for your late work, too. I’ll try your approaches tomorrow. I appreciate your advice!

    @mercime,

    I’ve verified that the BP files on our BlueHost server are in agreement with the table published following step 5 of the activation wizard outline.

    Given this fact, do you suppose I might have a good BP install and simply need to work through the Genesis Child Theme tempate issues to get a good presentation outcome for BP?

    Genesis Connect claims to make changes in the way log ins are handled and reports in the Genesis Connect support forum as follows:

    **************Quote
    Actually, GC *does* offer extra functionality, in addition to the required templates I mentioned in the other thread.

    Custom registration llink to stop spammers, support for Simple Menus and Simple Sidebars, so you can have different menus and/or sidebars on the BuddyPress pages, and showing whether the user is logged in or not.

    I’ve attached an image of the Settings page for GC.

    If you do try out the BP template pack, be aware it physically places files and folders in your child theme. They *must* be removed before you use GenesisConnect, becasue they will override the plugin. ************* End of quote

    In my case,support at StudioPress believes that a re-install may not be required.

    Thanks for your further review. I’ll appreciate any further thoughts you might offer.
