[Resolved] Toolbar not showing to new registered members

    Hi

    I haven’t updated to the latest BP yet, just waiting for my techie friend to be on standby if things go wrong but the toolbar is missing for newly registered members. I’ve no idea how long this has been going on, it was brought to my attention by a new member. I’ve done a new dummy account testing and the toolbar isn’t there when logged in. It doesn’t help either if I click the box to have it visible even when logged out. ┬áThere was a recent user role plugin update, so I’m wondering if that caused a problem.

    I can’t understand why I, as admin and my old dummy account as contributor can see the toolbar when logged in. Yet the new subscriber accounts cannot.

    Any help is very much appreciated. My theme is specially designed BTW and I’ve been using WP and BP for a couple of years, and would not wish to use anything else, it’s great.

    Many thanks

    Lynn

    Have you tried disabling the user role plugin to see if that helps? It would also be beneficial if you provided a link, or the exact title, of the user role plugin you’re using. It sounds like it’s a permission problem, but without knowing what the plugin is it’ll be hard to help you.

    Hi Dyer,

    I’ve just deactivated the User Role plugin and the problem is still there, no toolbar for new users. This is the link to the plugin that I’m using. http://shinephp.com/user-role-editor-wordpress-plugin/

    Default setting is for all new users to be set as a subscriber.

     

    Many thanks

    Hi again, I just want to add that I have just updated to the latest BP and the missing toolbar problem is still there, along with a few other things as well for new users. such as friends not being listed when they want to invite them to join newly created groups, not sure how long this has been going on, but definitely before the later BP update.

    Can we get a link to your site so we can register an account and look for any obvious errors?

    Have you spoken to your theme developer to see if a filter was placed in your functions.php to hide the bar from guests and subscribers?

    Hi . I feel so silly because the mystery of the missing tool bar is now solved. Only admins and contributors need to see the toolbar, users in general have no need for it. All their menu settings are set within BP.

    Thank so much for your help.
