    I had an issue with the new Microsoft brower, Edge. Then when I changed browser, it worked ok. This is as if Edge prevented me from clicking on upload. Just in case you have the same issue.

    hi LoneWolf.. did you manage to find a solution to this? This upload avatar and background pic in the BP profile of my site is not working as well. Not the WP avatar thingy, but the native to the BP site. In my case the ‘upload’ button does not respond. thanx in advance!

    Thanks @megainfo – That did not work, BUT, putting in wp-config.php did the trick. Thanks a bunch

    Thanx @modemlooper – I am not using a cache plugin. And you are right, I am interested in turning the profile as the default page of a user file not redirecting on login. Basically with the bp-custom-php file and 3 lines in it, the just messes up login in/out. After installing it, it would go blank upon log in/out.

    @arezki

    Same problem with LOGIN IN. Won’t let you when using bp-custom-php unless something else is added in the code. Which I don;t know what is.

    @mrjarbenne, i tried bp-redirect-to-profile and not working. In fact, many many fine plugins on WP are no longer working… Upgrades are great but can very disruptive too.

    Not 100% perfect. It does what it says… BUT, it interferes with your attempts to log out. When you click on log-out, it gets stuck on a blank page- trying to get back to site, you are not logged out. Any thoughts? @mrjarbenne / @modemlooper

    BRILLIANT…worked.. OK in case other folks wonder.. her it is: created a txt file with the following simple code below (just 3 lines)… Replace the file name to bp-custom.php and place it in wp-content/plugins/ And voila. Thanks @modemlooper U save me tons of worries.

    <?php
    define( ‘BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT’, ‘profile’ );
    ?>

    Hi @modemlooper…I wonder if this new version of BP made substantial changes in files? I just searched for bp-custom.php file, certainly in wp-content/plugins/ and in wp-content/plugins/buddypress, alas nothing. Is bp-custom.php gone and now another file holds the code?

    Thanks

    Gene53… the Invitation Code Checker seems to be an MU plugin. Give it a try though and if I find something else along the lines of r-a-y I will post an update here. But at least not it seems the fort is holding.

    @arezki

    yea..i agree that would be a lot easier. i am searching for a plugin like that. if u happen to know one, by all means let me know. many thanks

    @arezki

    r-a-y, FYI and for what it’s worth for others looking for a similar concept. There is a tiny plugin called “Invitation Code Checker.” By installing it and then putting a code in it, say ‘fifty three’, and changing “enter validation code” in the registration form to “what is fifty and three in letters” – seems to be working so far. Spams have slowed, though I expect they will catch up. By then it is a matter a matter of changing the code like what is the capital of china? In my case, it is a foreign language site, which I hope would add more difficulty to those punks.

    Thanks for the help!

    yes, correct assessment, but there is a potential solution, if i am right. first about BP: the default theme used to be “widget” ready or friendly, meaning that you can decide what goes in there from the Widget Admin area. This latest version brings essentially major changes in the codes that organize user behavior, but not so easy on the theme side. In fact, there aren’t any themes, may be 2 or 3, that are BP1.2.2.1 compliant and easy to just deploy. However, the Buddypress creators and developers say that you have to create what they call a child theme and then make whatever changes you want from there, probably including making the first “Activity” page as your landing page. Now, one very smart developer released this base theme, http://freebpthemes.com/onsite/sense-sensibility/ If you have bandwidth, time and some technical capabilities, I would recommend having a look.

    Now WordPress(MU) may allow u to pick your activity page as the landing page. In your WP Admin section, scroll down to the Settings area (left column). You see “Reading”. In it, it will let you choose “Front Page Display.” You may try to select “Static Page” and open the drop down menu for Front Page and select the Activity Stream page. Then save. By doing, I suspect, since I did not try it, the Activity Stream page (Facebook-like section) will be what your visitors will see when they hit your website.

    One think you may want to consider. The Activity Page puts any acvity across your site on that page. If you have a lot of people, that could be overwhelming. There is, however, one plugin u should find on this site called: BuddyPress Friends Only Activity Stream. It essentially should show only activity from the memeber’s friends. Again, I did not try it, but I plan so.

    Good luck

    Quick note: This plugin basically has it all, except it is old and out of sync with the latest BP. Should be a terrific start:

    dwpers, if you figure out the way to do, would love if you could share. Sadly, I am not so knowledgeable on scripting but I watch these threads all the time to see if someone came with a solution. Cheers/A

    @arezki

    That would be a great plugin. Makes sense to send folks to “Activity” to check the latest.

    Thanks r-a-y: I wish it was that simple. I created a second site, the first was to stimulate interest around Worldcup South Africa slated for summer 2010. After that, I want to move those who joined into a community site, not related to sports, but broadly around national and cultural issues. So the idea is to retire the sports site but not the members… a bit weird but there is a good reason there.

    Cheers

    Thanks Josh101. I will try rpx and see how it goes. For sure facebook connect is a huge extra push in membership building. We are a publication that tries to up visibility and whether folks fully register or interact via facebook is fine by us. You are talking about a lot of tools that you have. Do you mind providing a link to you site or any ideas?

    Thanks a mil
