    Hi I inherited this web site at http://tah.newton.k12.ma.us/
    and no posts or pages are showing, especially the each user’s profile and associated lessons they posted.
    At the admin panel, I see the alert “The following active BuddyPress Components do not have associated WordPress Pages: Activity Streams, Discussion Forums, User Groups, Members.” and when I hit Repair I only see one page to associate each type with. I am unsure if I should proceed with this? I also need to upgrade the plugins and wordpress from 3.3 to 3.5, but I thought I would do that last. Help! Thanks!

    1. backup database and server files.

    2. Change to Twenty Eleven theme and deactivate BuddyPress.

    3. Now re-activate BuddyPress. You should see the Installation Wizard http://codex.buddypress.org/legacy/buddypress-1-5-installation-wizard/ Follow instructions and select the BP Default theme in panel which shows up during this process.

    4. Continue on to Configuring Components codex.buddypress.org/legacy/configuring-components-v1-5/

    5. Check your BP pages in the front end.

    6. If all is working as expected, then backup DB again.

    7. Upgrade to latest WordPress and BuddyPress versions.

    Hi thanks – just to clarify, this will rebuild the database tables, but won’t delete the data that’s in them? Thanks!

    Hi i changed to twenty eleven theme and deactivated Buddypress. Then reactivated it and i do not see the installation wizard link. Instead I see this:
    You’ll need to activate a BuddyPress-compatible theme to take advantage of all of BuddyPress’s features. We’ve bundled a default theme, but you can always install some other compatible themes or update your existing WordPress theme.

    The following active BuddyPress Components do not have associated WordPress Pages: Activity StreamsDiscussion ForumsUser GroupsMembers.

    Hi – I just created new pages and associated these pages with the components so the components message has disappeared. But all of my users’ posts are still not appearing on the site or in the list of posts.

    Example:

    http://tah.newton.k12.ma.us/lessons/the-trials-of-theodore-roosevelt-and-woodrow-wilson/

     

    Thanks!

    Hi! Thanks sorry for the dup  post, thought it was a new issue.
    YOURS: @lradden have you tried contacting the previous webmaster? Looks like it’s missing a plugin like Courseware perhaps, sound familiar or one of the learning management systems. Check in your Plugins > Installed panel. The lessons plugin may have been deactivated.

    REPLY: There is a plugin called cforms that won’t re-activate. It gave me this error when I first deactivated buddy press and reactivated from your instructions above and I haven’t been able to reactivate without this error since:

    Warning: fopen(/var/www/tah/wp-content/plugins/cforms/abspath.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/tah/wp-content/plugins/cforms/lib_functions.php on line 191 Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array in /var/www/tah/wp-content/plugins/cforms/lib_activate.php on line 7
    YOURS: Otherwise, where are you hosted? If on shared host, perhaps tech support can get you a copy of your database backup from last month at least to check wp_options table to see what were the active plugins at that time.

    REPLY: The site is on our server so I have the backup I did before I tried any of your instructions. I do not, however, have any backup before that as the previous person did not back up the files ever.

    Hello again – At this point, should I create a new wordpress blog and import in the old .sql file export that has the posts in them? Or is there still something else I can do to get the posts back up? Thank you!
