    I’m having the exactly same problem. Currently trying to install buddy press on a sub domain. It’s there (as in, it shows a blog with the buddy press theme). The only place I see any buddypress control is in network admin dashboard > settings > buddy press. I don’t see any buddy press controls on my subdomain dashboard, despite changing the code in the bp-custom.php file and the wp-config.php file.

    Help? I’m a real beginner at coding and have no idea where to go from here.

    Seems like this problem hasn’t gone away on 1.7.1.

    I’ve tried the above solution with little joy.

    1. My customers setup is a sub-site from their primary site.
    2. I tried disabling all the plugins except for BuddyPress. No joy there
    3. Tried adding define(‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true); to wp-config on the sub site and primary site, no joy there either.

    Any suggestions??

    I have resolved the problem on the site where I was having problems.

    Here’s what I did.

    1. Disabled “all plugins”
    2. By doing this I identified it wasn’t a BuddyPress Problem
    3. Tried to login on as a vanilla WordPress site. If you cant login you are confirming this is not a BuddyPress issue but a WordPress issue.
    4. Ran the script written by Mark Jaquith found here:
    5. I checked the user on the Vanilla WordPress site, I logged in OK.
    6. I re-initialised all BuddyPress Plugins and Themes
    7. I was able to log in. (Yeah Team!)

    All good. I hope this helps.
