New Install – Seems not to work fully

    sorry I’m gonna sound like a noob but whatever I’m missing eludes me.

    Installed a new WP (Stand alone) 2.9.2 and BuddyPress http://tvcm.co.uk/community/

    all looks really nice but I don’t think it’s working as should be – none of the items in the admin bar seem to do anything

    can’t seem to see anywhere where a user would change their avatar

    In the BuddyBar, navigate to “My Account > Profile > Change Avatar”.

    Your site seems to work fine for me.

    How odd. It doesn’t work for me at all. Every click just brings me to the home page. I’ve tried Chrome instead of FF and cleared the cache

    Looks like you renamed your “admin” account.

    That might be causing your problems.

    Also try adding the following to your /wp-config.php file:

    define( 'BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE', true );

    I’ll try adding that line

    not sure what you mean about renaming my admin account

    thanks – adding that line has changed things quite a bit

    Cool, glad that worked!

    Marked as resolved.

    Btw, disregard that “admin” account thing I mentioned above.

    I’m just so used to a default “admin” account!
