[Resolved] Only Admins can Accept Friends?
Here are the details of my installation:
URL (temp): http://creativeconundrum.com/kristen2
Theme base: Genesis with Custom Theme
Buddypress compatibility: v1.2.1
While doing a walkthrough of functionality today, the friending process did not work. I sent a friend request to my client, who was registered as a subscriber. She accepted the request but I wasn’t added to her list of friends. I took the problem offline to work so we could get through the rest of our meeting.
I’ve just discovered, through testing, that when I change her WordPress role to be an administrator, she can accept me as her friend and that will show up instantly in her Member Listing. I made a screencast to show you what I’m seeing:
As I summed up the video, we clearly can’t give all site members administrator privileges at the site. The ability to friend each other is critical to the site.
I have not modified core buddypress functions at this site. I’m averse to doing that from a “code durability” point of view. Using the default Buddypress theme is NOT an option, nor should it have to be.
This is an issue around the forum but I’ve seen tickets and threads closed. None of the content that I read pinned the problem down to WordPress roles, however.
Here are the two threads that I reviewed:
We want to launch this site at the end of next month (June 2013) and I have a lot of other functionality to add in order to make this happen. I hope that someone has found a solution that actually works with the revisions of software that I’m using.
