IIS specific settings for BuddyPress 1.6.x?

    OK…so, since my upgrade to BuddyPress 1.6.x, my groups and member profiles do not work, and also when BuddyPress is enabled the XMLRPC is locked. After weeks of troubleshooting (have gone through ALL suggested scenarios, i.e., theme change, plugins deactivated, etc., etc.), I believe it boils down to a server setting specific to how IIS is configured.

    Is there anything about the BuddyPress 1.6.x changes that would require any changes to IIS? The biggest issue is the “redirect loop” or “too many redirects”.

    We did add canonical redirections in BP 1.6. I don’t see why this would affect IIS and not, for example, Apache. To see if it was the canonical redirects, put this in your bp-custom.php file:

    add_filter( ‘bp_do_redirect_canonical’, ‘__return_false’ );

    If you don’t have a bp-custom.php file, see http://codex.buddypress.org/extending-buddypress/bp-custom-php/

    Gave it a shot, but had no affect. Same issue. If I could get the profiles issue resolved (too many redirects), I can circle back to the others. It’s just strange that Buddypress “locks” the XMLRPC file.

    BP doesn’t touch XMLRPC *at all*. It’s probably coincidence and will hopefully resolve itself whenever the route issue is fixed.

    I have no experience with IIS so unable to help further; at least we proved it’s not the canonical redirects causing trouble.

    You would *think* BP doesn’t touch XMLRPC at all, but here’s the scenario…

    Pre BP 1.6x – works fine. Windows Live Writer connects and works. JetPack can connect.

    Post BP 1.6x – With BP activated, Windows Live Writer cannot post to WordPress. You have to disable BP before JetPack will connect correctly – gives error about XMLRPC. So, something that BP is doing when enabled, locks XMLRPC.

    I’ve reported this to the JetPack folks and they are checking into it.

    No, really. I *know* BP doesn’t touch or do anything with XMLRPC. If it’s causing a problem, it’s a symptom of something else. e.g. things like load order, or something like that.
