Starting Buddypress/WordPress MU site

    Hey:

    I just began work on a WordPress Mu/Buddypress site. This came as a suggestion from a friend when I asked how to combine a Ning site and a WordPress site on same subjects. Right now, I’m trying to get everything working yet have several questions.

    1) New users cannot register. It says /register does not exist…the option for new user registration is enabled.

    2) How can I make all the site, including the Buddypress aspect to use same theme?

    3) Is there a way to create events on Buddypress?

    By the way, my site is:

    The Register function does not work with the theme I am trying to incorporate which is Old School, which uses Hybrid. It does work with Elegant Grunge.

    Sorry for the continuous posts. I just tried to add the bbpress into the site. I unzipped it on the server, renamed folder to /forums and when I type it in, it says site doesn’t exist…something that didn’t occur before WordPress Mu/Buddypress.

    If you’re new to BuddyPress then chances are you haven’t been down this road before, but I’d advise you to check out some of the stickies and FAQ’s here and spend some time getting educated on all the subtle nuances.

    This question has been answered quite a few times, so I’ll give you a hint and if you still can’t figure it out, come back and we’ll see what we can do.

    HINT: Check the functions.php included in wp-content/themes/bphome/ and compare it to the functions.php in the theme you're trying to use.

    Regarding installing bbPress, you will probably need to create a page in your primary blog with the slug of “forums” before WordPress will allow access to it.

    I have an empty Forums page created on my blog yet it still doesn’t let me through. Again, I’m no expert. I’ll keep surfing the FAQs.

    I was able to navigate to /register and the rest of the BuddyPress links just fine. Looks like you got this figured out?

    Well, I’m using a theme that works for it. Yet, on Old School theme, my preferred theme, it doesn’t work as well.
