How to set members directory as startpage

    @chneijens

    hi,

    I’m able to set the page “activity stream” as startpage of my blog in wordpress under “Settings > Reading”, set front page to “Activity Stream” but I don’t see the option to set Members Directory as the startpage.

    I tried to manually enter “members” in the database under page_on_front and show_on_front. Because when you set the startpage to activity stream it reads “activity”

    I doesn’t work.

    Can anybody please assist me?

    Thank you.

    All you’ll need to do is create a home.php file within your theme folder (or use one in bp-default) and enter in this code:

    <?php
    locate_template( array( 'members/index.php' ), true );
    ?>

    Then on the Reading Settings, page of your Dashboard, just set it to “Your Latest Posts” (it won’t actually be your latest posts).

    I’ve tested and it works, just let me know if you have troubles.

    Just a question. Why the need for the Reading setting?

    Does this work for 1.1.3? When users login I would like them to be sent directly to the activity stream in their profile.

    Although this isn’t related to the thread, use Brajesh’s BP Redirect to Profile plugin:

    Thank you guys for helping me out. Feel free to have a look at the site http://profiel.manager-tv.be it’s still under construction though :-)

    @designodyssey

    I’m trying to create a basic business directory and I want my visitors to see the members directory page as the startpage.

    @dwpers

    I haven’t tried it in any other version of bp, but because it’s so simple I think it will work in any version.

    @r-a-y

    Thanks for the plugin, but it requires wpmu and mine is single user. I don’t need the option to create blogs.

    Hi everyone,

    I discoverd something strange.

    The Members directory is now the startpage (thanks to nickbwatson)

    but when I try to search for a member it doesn’t return any results.

    Then if I try again, it does work and returns results.

    It seems like the members directory hasn’t been loaded until you refresh the page or hit the members button.

    Any ideas are welcome.

    Thank you.
