    I’ve got BuddyPress installed on my local mamp installation and have got a problem with white screens.

    Whenever I try to

    -Save Changes in the group settings

    -Post a message on a group wire

    -Send a message

    -Post a new topic on the group forum

    I get a blank page. Often the settings are saved and I need to reload to get to the screen I need to see.

    Sometimes I get this “Are you sure you want to do this?” from the WordPress backend after reloading.

    I’d be very happy for any hints in the right direction as I think it also prevents me from have the group forum working although I have followed these instructions very carefully:

    http://umwblogs.org/wiki/index.php/Integrating_WPMu%2C_BuddyPress%2C_and_bbPress#Integrating_BuddyPress_Group_forums_with_bbPress

    And the whole rest of the deep integration works perfectly.

    First of all, we have very little information with which to provide you assistance. What version of WPMU are you running? What version of BuddyPress?

    Please reference this thread an answer the questions.

    Finally, the message:

    “Are you sure you want to do this?”

    often indicates a nonce security failure message. It can happen if you have not updated the BP themes or are using a custom theme (i.e. any theme other than the ones that come with BuddyPress). Try switching to the default BP themes and see if the issue goes away. If it does, then you know it has something to do with the theme you’re using.

    Thanks Jeff for the first breakdown, you’re a real help here!

    I’m running WPMU 2.8.1 in the root as a directory install. BuddyPress is the last stable version.

    I was also thinking it might have something to do with the nonce functions. What can cause something like that? It’ll be a coding error from my side, however I’m not sure where to look.

    I modified the skeleton member theme to work with my WordPress theme design. I have not modified any of the core, just added custom functions to the skeleton theme.

    - I switched back to the original BP theme, it seems to work correctly there. Where do I have to start looking then?

    - Another question, if I started to work with the trac files to modifiy the new theme structure from the scratch, do I have to fear more changes until the launch of 1.1 (just to the theme files?)

    Compare the default theme files with your custom theme files. Also, you could be missing code in your functions.php file. Copy the code out of bphome/functions.php and paste it into your themes’ functions.php file.

    Another question, if I started to work with the trac files to modifiy the new theme structure from the scratch, do I have to fear more changes until the launch of 1.1 (just to the theme files?)

    You should assume that the files in trunk will be modified more. Trunk is the bleeding edge. Changes are being made to those files daily–even the theme files.

    Alright Jeff, thanks very much. I’m just thinking of postponing and wait for 1.1. to hit my inbox.

    I kept the functions.php the same and added my custom functions in there. Also I am using the P2 functions to power my comments in the blog.

    I reckon placing them outside in bp-custom will not be the solution here, but I’ll try. If i find the problem, I’ll post it in here.

    Ok parts of the problem were solved by deleting any white space in functions.php (always a stupid mistake).

    The rest might be related with the p2 functions though. We’ll try to figure that out.
