    HI
    Trying to set up a Buddypress site, have installed various plugins and a them, along with Buddypress itself.
    However, when you view http://retiredandkicking.com/ the Groups, Members, Register etc pages are blank, despite being specified in the admin, I’ve installed bb press which seems to have got forums showing but I’m at a loss as to why it’s blank on those pages, where would that content be drawn from?
    Buddypress Version 1.7
    Wordpress 3.5.1
    Theme Buddyboss v 2.1.7
    I’m getting a lot of page not found errors too on create an account pages

    I’ve obviously had some issue with install, but not sure what – tried re-installing but no luck!
    Help!
    James

    Having the same problem here, James. Can’t create any groups! Does anyone have some advice for us??

    Thanks
    Very odd. I’m not sure what to expect on an install, a lot of the documentation I’ve found seems to relate to older versions, which work differently? However the pages that wwre created automatically seem blank with no content at all.
    Really hoping to get this sorted!

    Deactivate all plugins other than BuddyPress and revert to either bp-default theme or Twenty Twelve and see if the problem persists then report back here. I suspect it is either a plugin, or theme but I won’t speculate. I just know I have not encountered this and I have about 30 installs on my test server, I do not however have that buddyboss theme so I have no way of testing it so its up to you to see if that theme is the issue.

    Hi
    Thanks
    I’d already tried that and nothing
    Did it again so yo ucan see. The register page link form “create an account” is wrong, the page is http://retiredandkicking.com/index.php/register/ but it’s looking for http://retiredandkicking.com/register/
    How do I correct this? Is the register page supposed to have content, as it seems to have none at all
    Can I pass login details privately?

    Create a user with the username: demo and password: demo. Not to be rude but there is many people here that can help you and I don’t want the total responsibility of helping your issue because there is still things I have yet to learn so please don’t request help from just one individual.

    HI
    OK – I’ve done that – sorry, thought you were support. Maybe there’s something I’m missing, or it’s a permalinks issue but I followed the instructions in setup.
    Thanks

    I help with support but I am just a volunteer like most other folks. I am not a moderator at all. I just pay it forward for all the folks that helped me in the past. There is no guarantee anyone can fix everything but there is a lot of us that is good at fixing some things. So don’t isolate your issue by requesting help from any single individual. I just checked your site and the pages are blank as you stated. Have you created a custom menu yet to associate those pages with the navigation?

    HI
    I did all the stuff in that document – so not sure why none of it’s working?

    Yes, I’m having the exact same problem. Seems like we’re not the only ones. Here’s a possible solution?

    I don’t have access to the server side of things for my site (grr) so please let me know if that manages to work for you James. I don’t see why that should still be an issue if you switch back to the BP Default theme, but give it a shot.

    Thanks for your help, bphelp. I noticed that I don’t have the “Forum Setup” tab in Settings > BP (only Components, Pages, and Settings).

    I’ve got tons of 404 errors as well, especially when I try to access any of the links under the main page menu (under “Howdy, <user>!” – Activity, Groups, Settings, Profile, and Forums are all dead ends). James, does yours look the same?

    loads of 404s – I have no forum option so installed bbpress (currently deactivated)
    I’m not sure what’s meant to be in there – but it looks like I have bits missing !

    I’m going to try moving to another server – a friend said that my server won’t support the url structure as it’s Zeus not Apache – worth a go?

    I was going to suggest it might be a server problem.

    Give it a go and let me know what happens! Cheers.

    Moving it solved all the issues I think! Thanks

    I was running on our reseller on Namesco – a Zeus server, moved the a records to an apache server (UKWSD) and it works fine – all the stuff shows, suspect it’s the Zeus issue of non-friendly url structure

    You primarily had a permalinks issue (not sure to whom I’m addressing that remark though) when you see ‘index.php’ in the url it tends to indicate a almost pretty permalinks setup found with windows or iirc Zues server, check the WP codex for further information, BP does require permalinks are in operation.

    Thanks for all the help everyone.

    James, are you now able to see the “Forum Setup” tab in Settings > BuddyPress? Was this part of the server problem or was it an issue with not having bbPress enabled?

    No – there’s no forum, but i’m using bbpress (which it recommended)
