I’m starting a custom plugin to migrate users from a custom community site to WP/BP. Wondering whether I need to worry about xProfiles, or can just use usermeta. I’ve been hunting for documentation which might explain the difference between the two. Any help greatly appreciated.
I know this is an old thread, but I had the same problem and there was something just a smidge different about mine, so I thought I’d tack it on at the end here, for future generations who might run into the same issue.
I’m running XAMPP on OSX. I’ve got vhosts set up.
The problem manifested itself when I switched permalink settings. When I saved the change, WP told me to modify my .htaccess file; but it didn’t tell me what to put in it. I was very perturbed. After a bunch of testing I found that it actually *was* telling me how to change it, but it was under the fold, so I couldn’t see it without scrolling.
Once I cut and pasted the suggested .htaccess code everything went swimmingly.
