Problems with BP-Album and WordPress 3.3.1

  • I see that some other people running wp 3.3 are having problems, I am not sure if this is related… although everything seems to be installed fine. The problem is that once a user tries to upload a photo, it goes to the server and then the page cannot retrieve it (404 not found error). The photos are in actuality on the server in the file location described, but it isn’t ‘finding’ them. Two questions: a) any ideas what could have caused this? b) Would adjusting the file path help… how can I change the install directory for the album for uploading and when it is called by the page?

    If its a repeatable defect, it means that someone changed a hook function somewhere in WordPress that BP-Album depends on, and neglected to tell us about it.

    I’ll look into it first thing tomorrow.

    ^F^

    Same issue here! If i try to upload from the admin bar is ok until the edit page. when i click on save i get a broken link page. Same broken link appears when i click on the album button from the profile.
    Any help is much appreciated!
    Thank you!

    I’ve tested this on WP 3.3.1 / BP 1.5.0 and BP 1.5.5 / BP-Album 0.1.8.11

    We can’t repeat the defect you guys have reported …and we can’t fix it unless we can repeat it on one of our developer’s workstations.

    1) Are you using the DEFAULT buddypress theme? If not, can you get the defect to repeat after switching to the default BP theme?

    2) Are you using the LATEST versions of WordPress, BuddyPress, and BP-Album?

    3) Are you using any unusual rewrite rules?

    4) What web host are you on?

    5) Are you operating in multi-site mode?

    6) Do you have the front page set to a component?

    7) Are you using root profiles?

    8) Do you understand you have to click the “save” button at the bottom of the image edit page to get it to appear in the activity stream?

    9) Please post a link to a user profile on your website that’s experiencing this problem.

    Thanks!

    I can post an example: http://swapshuffleshare.com/members/deeve007/album/

    The plugin does not recognise that WP is installed in a sub-directory (site2012) so is using an image path that does not include that:
    Not working: http://swapshuffleshare.com/assets/album/1/empanada-600×450-150×150.jpg
    Working: http://swapshuffleshare.com/site2012/assets/album/1/empanada-600×450-150×150.jpg

    So somewhere in your code it’s adding the site URL when it should be adding the wordpress URL. If you could point out where that so I can change it that would be great!

    Oh, and the issue is with default buddypress theme too, tested that out.

    That’s easy to fix.

    On the BP-Album admin menu, just paste “http://swapshuffleshare.com/site2012/assets/album/” into the “Base URL” field, and click “Save”.
