No Group Forums
I really want to make this work, and really can’t. ANY help will be appreciated, honest!
I’ve followed every single step, I’m positive, several times (deleting everything and trying again each time).
I think my problem is very similar to what’s happening to others in this thread http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=2027 , although not precisely the same, but none of these solutions seem to work.
Let me lay it out…
I’ve got a working WPMU 2.7.1 installation at http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios . BuddyPress is working fine in there (1.0).
BBPress (the alpha 1.0) is installed and working fine at http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/bbpress
I’ve got the plugin in my-plugins in bbPress and activated, and the two plugins in wpmu are activated.
I’ve got the boxes for XML-RPC and pingbacks ticked in bbPress.
I’ve got forums enabled in Component Setup and the information all entered in Forum Setup (and checked and reentered) in the admin of WPMU, with a new user created and made an administrator in bbPress and that user entered and that user’s password entered in bbPress Integration in the Settings in WPMU’s admin.
I’ve added the appropriate line about user-switching in bb-config.php.
But I can NOT seem to get group forums to set up at all in BuddyPress.
When I create a group, instead of the option to enable discussion, I get the warning “Attention Site Admin: Group forums require the correct setup and configuration of a bbPress installation.”
In an existing group (there’s only one) or any of the new groups I try to create, there is NO option for enabling or disabling discussion in the Group Settings.
There’s a “Forum” button for each group, as if there were a Forum there, but when trying to post to that forum, I get “there was an error posting that topic” in a red bar.
Basically, no forums are able to happen at all.
Following the advice in the other thread, I tried the xml-rpc check with /oci-bp-sayhello.php .
That gives this error -32300 >> transport error – HTTP status code was not 200
which is not exactly the same as what others were seeing. It’s not a 404 error at all.
But maybe that gives a clue? I did check the /etc/hosts file, on the recommendation of others in another thread, but there IS an entry for my own server, with the correct IP address.
Any ideas or suggestions? I’ve spent a couple of days on this–much searching of the forums and googling, and I seem to be stumped. Even questions or seemingly obvious points that I might have missed would be welcome at this point!
