[Resolved] Installed Buddypress but cannot see log in at top of page

    Hi,

    I installed Buddypress into my website which is a Gabfire Theme and is supposed to handle buddypress…..buddypress friendly.

    I am NOT a tech guy but understand basics.

    Once it is installed I cannot find a log in or regsister bar/tab at the top of the page for people to sign up.

    There are other plug ins that were installed previously. Could that be a problem and if so, what is the productive solution that I can do?

    Thank you all.

    You need to add it to one of your menus or as a widget.

    Go to appearance/menus – then you can select a range of Buddypress options to add to your nav bar for both logged in or logged out users. Click the Buddypress tab (below the pages tab). If you don’t have a nav bar then create a new one.

    Otherwise appearance/widgets – and place the login widget somewhere!

    Regards

    thank you. But please—how do I create a navigation bar? Where can I find this tutorial? Thank you very much.

    Now we are talking very basic WordPressing here.

    Go to the appearance/menus screen and from there it’s pretty self explanatory.

    click on ‘Create a new menu’, call it whatever you want, then select what pages you would like to appear in the menu.

    Underneath the list of WordPress pages you see a tab full of Buddypress options that can also appear in the menu, one of which is the log-in/log-out button.

    OK. Thank you. My big question is that since I have built the blog located at http://www.theworldsstage.net with several categories and many posts in each category, how do I transition the categories and corresponding posts to menus? It is clearly important that this transition to menus does Not affect existing content and its placement on the home page.
    Thank you very much.

    @liceocr next time, please create your own topic :)

    If you installed BuddyPress and “Registration” was enabled in your Settings, then you should have automatically generated Registration and Activation Pages which you can change/rename.

    If you installed BP and Registration was not enabled at the time, then you would have to create the Pages yourself. Go to http://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/register-and-activation-pages/
