[Resolved] Notification "close" link is not working.

    Hello, my name is Joe and I’d like some help from somebody experienced. I installed the Buddypress and really like it but I have two (small) unsolved problems. The “close” link at the end of the notification messages does not work. So the only way to close the message is to do page refresh. Firebug gives an error every time I’m trying to close the message by using the “close” link. But since I’m not an expert I can not figure out what’s wrong. The second problem has to do with the avatar crop tool. I can upload the image but there is no way to select the area I want to crop. There is only a “Crop Image” button. I’m getting an error that says:

    TypeError: jQuery(…).Jcrop is not a function

    Could you please help me to solve these problems?

    Just now I found a third problem which seems to be related. The “Search Members” and “Search Messages” function does not work and this seems to be related because I get the same error…

    TypeError: jQuery.easing[jQuery.easing.def] is not a function

    @joe35 your theme is using an older version jQuery 1.4.2 while BP is using jQuery 1.8.3. Note that upcoming WP 3.6 will be using jQuery 1.9.1

    @joe35 download a copy of your theme to your hard drive. Then revise the copy in server: remove the call to jquery 1.4.2 in either the header.php file or enqueued in the functions.php of the theme. Know that by doing this, some behaviors expected in the old theme might be affected, or they may not. Then test your theme with BuddyPress.

    If this doesn’t work, then you might have to look for another WP theme which is updated for current WP 3.5.1 at the very least http://wordpress.org/themes/

    I followed the instructions you gave me, the call to jquery was in the header. The Buddypress now works flawlessly. All three problems I had were solved. But the slider of the theme stopped working, as expected. The problem is that I don’t want to change the theme I use but I also need the Buddypress.

    To change somehow the version of the jquery that my theme uses isn’t an option? Can this be done?
    Thanks.

    Music to my ears :-) Thank you for following instructions.

    There are alternatives to your slider which should work with current WP standards. Check out the ones updated in 2013 -> http://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/slider

    You need to make sure that your theme is updated to the latest WordPress version including jQuery, otherwise you’d be stuck in an old WordPress version which could be buggy and/or a security risk. In addition plugins, like BuddyPress and bbPress, use the latest jQuery version included in current WordPress, so if you use older version, things could get very bumpy.

    To keep theme updated, install the Theme Check plugin and run it in Appearance > Theme Check with your theme. If you find any REQUIRED or WARNING results, you need to address that in your theme right away. RECOMMENDED results are just that, recommendations which you might want to address but not that important or necessary. Good luck.

    Thanks @mercime for all these useful information. I’ll check the plugins you recommend me. I also Informed the author of the theme about the problem and I hope that he will try to help. Thanks again for the answers!

    Regards!

    Hi, @mercime

    Here I am again! The author of the theme did an update and thereby solved the two of the three problems I had. But the problem with the Crop tool persists, now in a different way. I can upload the image, I can see both images for one or two seconds and the crop tool and immediately after it automatically crop a part of the image without having the control over what portion of the picture will be cropped.

    Could you please take a look on my website and tell me what you think? I don’t think it is related to JQuery since I no longer get this jQuery error.

    Thanks in advance.
