[Resolved] Buddypress Pages not working as expected

    I am running latest version of Buddypress and WordPress. Installation went smoothly. I opted to install compatibility pack and run the Amped child theme from Genesis. Everything seems to be set up properly. No errors or anything.

    The default pages created by Buddypress are in place, and they’re assigned properly in Buddypress settings. There are two main problems:

    1. When I visit any Buddypress page (/activity, /register, etc) I’m met with a 500 server error.
    2. When I visit any user-specific Buddypress page (members/user-name/activity, members/user-name/profile, etc) I’m met with a page that says “oops this link appears to be broken”.

    The rest of the site is cool. Other pages in WordPress render just fine. There are no 500 server errors unless I try to visit a Buddypress page. Also, I have a custom 404 error page. It works when trying to visit a page that doesn’t exist. But when I try to visit a user-specific Buddypress page, it supposedly doesn’t exist…and the 404 error page doesn’t show up. I just get the “opps this link appears to be broken” error.

    This all tells me there is something wrong with the installation, but I can’t figure out what’s up. I’ve tried disabling all other plugins, and I’ve gone in and resaved each page, but that hasn’t worked.

    Any insight is much appreciated!

    Just a quick follow up…I’ve found that if I manually create pages and use Buddypress settings to assign them properly, they show up. At least I’m not getting the 500 internal server error pages. But the pages are blank. From what I’ve read so far, the pages are not supposed to be blank. Isn’t the Activity page, for example, supposed to display an activity stream?

    Again…any insight into this is much appreciated. Thank you!

    So…I logged back in several hours later, and all the pages now work. I didn’t touch anything. Did someone here hack into my site and fix something? Haha. Sometimes the interweb baffles me :-)

    I have just tried to install BuddyPress on my WP version 3.4.1 and using the salutation theme.
    On click Finish and I get the below error:
    Warning: Illegal offset type in D:AppServwwwwordpresswp-contentpluginsbuddypressbp-coreadminbp-core-update.php on line 642.
    Any ideas / suggestions ?

    @lottiejam you have to provide more information
    WP/BP versions? What theme are you using? Site URL?

    Hi mercime. I set up a test site on my localhost(mac environment). I then recreated the same set up on my hosting space using a fresh download of both wordpress and buddy press. I think I have located the problem to my permalinks in that WordPress includes the index.php in the permalink and this inhibits buddy press functionality(?). I have mod rewrite enabled on the server and have tried numerous elements from other support threads e.g. ensuring .htaccess is correct. I don’t have a url at present as I am only putting it up as a test site and by the time I had posted I took it down! let me know if this is enough information and any help would be most welcome.

    @lottiejam Yes, it’s a permalink issue. Adding index.php in permalink is not an option to use with BuddyPress as you can see. mod_rewrite or equivalent should be enabled in your server, contact webhost for assistance in setting it up
