redirect loop

    I am using WP 3.6.1. and BP 1.6.5. If a member of the site tries to enter a BP group he/she is not the member of, there appears this notification: ‘This webpage has a redirect loop’. If a non-registered user tries to enter the group it says he/she is not a member and should request membership. This is how it should be. Does anyone, please, know how to solve this ‘THIS WEBPAGE HAS A REDIRECT LOOP.’? I am not using a redirection plugin.
    Thank you!

    I’m assuming this is recent so what did you change? did you add a plugin recently? if so, remove it or deactivate it. also check your .htaccess

    Thanks. And what is .htaccess exactly for? What does it do?

    Hi, the problem was caused by putting the extras (pages) on to the first place, in front of Home, Docs and Admin. Extras (pages) cannot be on the first place I guess. When I put Home back onto the first place, there is no redirect loop. BuddyPress suggests not putting Admin on the first place, but I guess the safest thing is to leave Home on the first place. Thanks

    glad you resolved it and came back to tell us

    .htaccess is a very useful file that is used for many things when running Apache (extremely useful for SEO!!)

    there are tonnes of guides, tutorials, etc. on the web and you *should* have at least some knowledge of it (but ask your host first if you are running Apache, most are but better to be 100% sure)

    if you don’t want to muck about with ftp, SSH etc. you can also use plugins like yoasts’s WordPress SEO plugin and edit the .htaccess (and robot.txt file) from inside your wordpress admin panel.

    @tatjanalekic Happy Holidays! When you get chance, would you please let me know what exactly you meant by “putting the extras page on to the first place”? I’m trying to fix this redirect thing! Ughhh!
