Problems with themes after upgrade

    Hello everyone!

    I have recently upgraded WPMU from 2.7.1 to 2.8.3 and than 2.8.3 to 2.8.6. I also upgraded Budypress from 1.0.2 to 1.1.3. It was using custom made theme. Website is boonika.net.

    Boonika’s homepage is displayng custom made WPMU theme as it did while site was running on 2.7.1. You will notice ‘Members’ link in site’s navbar. It was a link that used to send visitors/members right to Buddypress members area from where they could explore other BuddyPress sections. Now, after the upgrade, it shows ‘Error 404 – Not Found’. Of course, it’s probably not Buddypress that is causing this problem but still, I don’t know how to solve it because of the new way BP is handling themes.

    My question is: How can I keep on using current WPMU theme for Boonika.net homepage and have Buddypress running as it did before? It is not even necessary to use that custom Budypress theme. Default will be fine for now. I just don’t want to have Buddypress displayed on site’s homepage. I have already red http://codex.buddypress.org/how-to-guides/upgrading-a-buddypress-1-0-theme-for-buddypress-1-1/ but it doesen’t help me. Actually, section “I’ve used a WordPress theme for my blog with the default BuddyPress member theme” is the closest to what I’m aiming at but I’m just not sure if tht is the right way so any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks in dvance,

    Marko

    What you’ll want to do is run BuddyPress on a sub-blog not the root blog. There are a couple of threads on how to do this if you do a quick search.

    As I said in previous post, it works. But I did find something ‘weird’ going on. After I added ‘Site Wide Activity’ widget to one of the sidebars I have noticed that links to users profiles don’t work properly. Actually, they do if your Buddypress is active on the main blog, which is not the case with our site. Other than that, everything works fine.

    “BuddyPress on a sub-blog not the root blog”

    Curious and a bit off-topic, sorry boonika: Back in BP 1.1, when I tested and run BP on blog_id_2 e,g, http://members.mysite.com/ – when a member created a blog, the URL would come up like e.g. http://username.members.mysite.com/ instead of the URL I want i.e. http://username.mysite.com/ so it turned me off and made me restart development with BP in blog_id_1 to present … Doesn’t this hold true anymore in BP 1.2?

    Thanks

    I hope that won’t happen with new blogs. That wouldn’t make any sense cause I already have users with their blogs URL like http://username.mysite.com/

    Hey boonika, just sharing what I discovered when I tested BP in blog_id_2. I am using WPMU as CMS for the project and wanted all Pages in blog_id_1 and subblogs have switch_to_blog in main navigation to get main nav of blog_id_1. There might be a work-around, but I just took the path of least resistance and with URL I want, install BP in blog_id_1 :-)
