haha! dude, the issue got resolved when I updated to Buddypress 1.5!!! Now I only have one new question:
The blog post with the BP update mentions oEmbed is now used in activities and so on. How do I embed images in forum, groups and activity updates?
@mercime Well, I’m using a child theme based off on bp-default, which is the default BP theme. Thing is, now I recall doing this in my new stylesheet when I first created the child theme:
/* Inherit the default theme adminbar styles */
@import url( ../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/adminbar.css );
I tried importing the styles for the default theme and the adminbar.css within the same style.css for my child theme. Could that be the issue?
I just tried adding the above changes and the issue isn’t resolved.
@mercime awesome! so you were able to replicate the issue? Is there a fix?
Yes, I tried the whole procedure without bp-custom.php (I removed it anyways even though all it does is set the avatar uploads folder). I do not use any mu-plugins.
@mercime It looks the same. I deactivated all plugins both on the network and in each individual site (I have 3 sites in my network). Made sure the default Buddypress theme was activated (only on one site) and Buddypress on network activate.
I believe you had told me to follow these steps before in the WordPress forums before, but it didn’t work that time either. What could be causing this issue?
@djpaul Bro, how you doing? Just writing to see if you have looked into this. Thanks so much for any help you can provide.
Update: I tried switching themes and the issue persists, so I gather that the problem lies within the dashboard files themselves, but I don’t know how they got edited since I’ve never touched my core installation (and even if I had, the core files get rewritten with each new WP update, right?)
@Paul No, I haven’t customized my dashboard theme. I’m actually using a child theme based off from the default that comes with Buddypress. The screenshot below shows what’s going on, except now I’m using WP 3.2:
@hnla I was able to reach my Network Admin dashboard by going to the dropdown menu as you mentioned, however I had to go “Inspect Element” in Safari and then remove “padding:0;” temporarily from the wp-admin-bar div.
Hm… also finding out that the post MUST have some text added to it or else BP will spit an error: There was an error when replying to that topic.
That’s weird. I’m having a similar issue where I can create a post and add images to it, but I can’t add images to the replies within that post. My site is only a month old and I haven’t even started to tick off some of the plugins I installed. Maybe I should start by deactivating them one by one and seeing if any of them are causing conflicts.
I actually was able to fix it as well with your code. I tried it, but I think I’ll stick with just putting in the correct BP_ROOT_BLOG value for the site I’m running.
Now the only other issue that’s been cramping my style is the fact that the BuddyPress admin bar is overlapping on the wp-admin dashboard on all sites within my network.
Nevermind! I was actually able to fix it by going into wp-config.php and making sure that the BP_ROOT_BLOG was set up with the right blog ID. I had a ‘9’ instead of a ’10’
How would I go about starting to check up on my multisite set up?
Hm, ok I found it. Seems the admin options for the group only show in the admin bar when I’m actually in the page for the specific group I created.
Just a quick recommendation: I think it would be easier to just have the admin options show up right when I log in to avoid jumping through hoops. Otherwise it might take a bit more time for less experienced users to find the option like it happened to me.
Hey there, I haven’t seen a reply here yet, but I did look a bit more into the issue. What I checked is that the root of the directory that BP is trying to create points to “/var/www/” and this is not how my server structure works.
I believe this is a default setting that can somehow be changed. Is there a way to change it?
Nope, not on a child theme or the bp-default.
I’m running Buddypress on a multisite install with subdomains. My main domain is http://www.astromono.com and i have two other subdomains: comic.astromono.com (with comicpress) and saril.astromono.com (with buddypress). When I try to edit the theme that’s on the main domain, I go to Network Admin, look for the theme and then try to edit the main php template (index.php).
Before I installed Buddypress, I got access to the main php template just fine, but now when I try to edit it, I get the Buddypress main php template instead of the one that comes with my theme. This issue was happening before I installed and used the BP Template Pack in order to make my theme compatible with BP.
