Thanks to all involved with the new version of Buddypress (released minutes ago,) however, I encountered two problems with it, which may or may not be isolated to my setup:
1) bp_is_active seems like it’s gone? There was a fatal call to it in my child theme’s functions.php
2) There was another issue with a core function.. but I forgot what it…[Read more]
Sorry if you already tried this, but let me suggest:
Rename the Buddypress folder – it will disable the Buddypress plugin.
If Buddypress is causing the problem, this should at least let you get back into your dashboard.
Assuming this is the case, then you will be able to delete Buddypress the proper way, via “Plugins.”
bbpress has got you covered for those first 2 goals.
As for vote/share posts, most likely there’s an additional bbpress plugin to help make that happen. If not, it sounds like stuff you can whip-up yourself fairly easy.
bbpress, like Buddypress, is open source, also, both plugins offer child-theme functionality, so you can make quick hacks very…[Read more]
The plugin author was kind enough to guide me through the process of making that work. If you follow those instructions, your users will be able to upload their profile photo during registration.
Although this method works, it causes a slight problem: The users won’t be able to update their photo in the…[Read more]
There is a plugin called BP Simple Private that allows you to restrict access to all Buddypress pages to logged in users only. Then, if people try to visit Buddypress pages after you install the plugin, they will get redirected to the home page.
But if I’m understanding you wrong – and you want to have a separate site just for your buddypress…[Read more]
I’m trying to change the url slugs for the settings nav tabs, and I’m following these directions:
I added ‘define( ‘BP_SETTINGS_SLUG’, ‘config’ );’ to my bp-custom.php, but the change didn’t reflect. The slug remains the same (settings.)
Is this…[Read more]
Based on that info, I decided I need to add an index.php to my /single/ folder. I created the file, but I’m not sure what to put in it.
Can you give me an example of what I can do? Or link me to a page with further explanation? I tried googling “custom buddypress template,” but I don’t even know if my search query is correct.
I’m ready…[Read more]
My theme (Graphene) allows me to select a “Page Layout” for all my pages. In this case, Page Layout means 1 full-width column, 2 columns with sidebar on left, or 2 columns with sidebar on right.
This system works great for all the BP pages except for member profile pages. BP member profile pages are always displayed in full width, and never with…[Read more]
There’s no trick. I was putting the <span in the wrong place. It has to go before the single quote. (And of course /span after the other single quote.)
Then, I did the same thing for the other element.
So there you have it – an awesome way to show unread messages in a menu item. The only thing missing now is a way to automatically…[Read more]
I’ve gathered information from several posts, and used it to create a nifty menu item called “Messages.” It includes an unread counter, and more. Here’s what it does:
1) Checks to see if user is online before proceeding
2) Checks to see if user is at appropriate menu before proceeding
3) Gives you control over where the new menu item is…[Read more]
One of my BP features is malfunctioning. It’s the “Compose Private Message” feature. The “To:” textbox has simply vanished. I’m not sure when this happened, because nobody on my site uses the feature often.
However, I want to fix this problem. What steps can I take to get that functionality back? I’m hesitant to completely re-install BP, because…[Read more]
A few months ago, I disabled the Compose Private Message feature with css. I think I used this:
#send-to-input: display: none;
My intention was to stop people from being able to send a single message to multiple recipients, but now I have realized that it was a bad idea, so I went to delete the code from my CSS file, but the code is not there.
What’s up Buddypress people?
I’m a former BBS sysop. Are any of you former or current BBS people?
I got into BBSign in the early 90s, and I’m still into it somewhat, but a couple years ago, a friend of mine recommended ditching the 80 column ascii scene for WordPress. I fought it for a while, but I eventually listened.
So, I’m now a Buddypress…[Read more]
I have searched BP Documentation, but I can’t figure out where this function is located. @Modemlooper posted information on locating functions 6 years ago, but it seems like that info may be outdated at this point.
He said it was in bp-core-templatetags.php but I can’t find that file on my server. I started searching for the function in random…[Read more]
There are other ways to give a user their password if they forgot it. Here’s my remedy for that:
1) I use a plugin called “RegisterIPs.” It records the IP address they signed up with.
2) I’ll display to them after they log on, like this:
“You signed up with this IP address: 56.454.24.454”
“Keep it someplace safe. You’ll need it if you ever…[Read more]
First, I must mention that I know there have been other threads on this topic. However, I missed the conversation by years, and I need to reopen this discussion.
Someone mentioned that they were able to bypass the wordpress email requirement by editing register.php to make it generate a random email address, insert it into the email…[Read more]
