    Well you have provided no code to study nor a link to the problem so it’s hard to help you really, could endlessly speculate but that’s not very productive.

    All themes? Doubt that but then..

    Deactivate all pluginsĀ  just run WP then run through the default themes, add back in BuddyPress, add back in plugins, basic troubleshooting i.e try to establish at point the issue occurs and what if any condition exists such as a specific plugin etc.

    @b2550 the forums page is the tip of the iceberg.
    #.URZ6pmf_34E is appended to the URL’s of many of your pages including WP’s archive pages and BP’s user profiles, and I find xxx/index.php/xxx in one of your site URL’s.

    I can only conclude that you are on a Windows server and something went awry with additions to the site’s .htaccess file in addition to using the option of adding index.php to your permalinks for pretty permalinks. That is not going to work with BuddyPress.

    Please deactivate BuddyPress and resolve permalinks before activating it again.

    @mercime I have changed the .htaccess. index.php? I will take a look at your links but the way you are explaining is nonsense.

    I will restart BuddyPress and see what happens.

    I am on CentOS

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
    Now I feel dumb!
    I had this PageLines plugin enabled that caused the whole thing! All fixed!
    Oh and #.URZ6pmf_34E is for a plugin called addthis that tries to see of the URL is shared.

    @b2550 That’s a dangerous plugin, geez. Thanks for posting back how you resolved the issues. Marking this topic as resolved.

    That is not the best manner in which to address people that are trying to help you in a volunteer capacity, please avoid that tone in future ;)

    So rather than follow the steps I outlined initially you chose to simply re-instate the fact that pages were red using a graphic to exemplify this fact- a fact I wasn’t disputing necessarily just the assertion that all themes demonstrated this – however if you had actually deactivated all plugins as I suggested along with themes then you would have found the issue going away, adding back in plugins/themes would then have pinpointed where the issue arrived from.

    This ia basic and essential troubleshooting and needs to be understood, it didn’t really require two of us having to spend time on the issue :)

    When running third party themes or plugins please take the view in the first instance that it’s the theme/plugin causing the issue (99.9% of the time it is) and if proved so the issue needs to be taken to the theme or plugin author.
