I tried removing the Widget Logic code that protects the Members widget from being seen by people who are NOT logged in. It works now, so the widget logic code was the problem. I don’t know why its causing a problem all of a sudden but it is. What’s funny is that somehow I cannot see the widget without being logged in first, as if the widget logic code was never needed in the first place, but I know it was need, because when I first set it up a few months ago, the Members widget was being displayed even to people who were not logged in, which explains why I had to add the widget logic code. Both the memberpress widget and the Widget Logic code seems to have a mind of their own. Who knows what it will do next. Frustrating.
Just logged into two of the test accounts. Communicated back and forth between the two of them via messaging, did a wall post, and “liked” a wall post ….. widget still shows “No one has signed up yet”.
I have three test members. I have logged all of them in within the past 12 hours, but the widget still doesn’t show them. Does “being active” mean they have to do more than just log in?
I only have three test users, and I have logged all of them in within the past 12 hours, and the widget still doesn’t display them. Does “being active” mean doing something more than just them logging in?
I have the same problem. Did you ever figure this out?
I’m not referring to links like youtube URLs – I want the ability for my members to upload actual video “files” to their profiles.
I spoke too soon – I did get the invite email, but still no email notifying me that a new member joined my site.
Hi @boonebgorges. After reading your response, I set up a test member account on my site, and I did not receive any email notification that a new member had joined my site. From the test member account, I also sent an invite for a non-member to join my site, and my non-member email address never received the invitation. So it would seem that no WP/BP emails are going through. Does that give you any better clue as to what the problem might be?
I’ve been reading around online and saw something that says my hosting server needs to be set up with SMTP for email to work. I have not set up any specific email settings in my Fastcomet hosting cpanel. My email addresses are set up independently through Godaddy, which I access through Outlook 365 website. Could that be the problem?
Sorry, I’m very new to all this WP/BP stuff, and I’m not super savvy with hosting and cpanels either. I learn as I go. I’d appreciate any additional help getting my email to work.
Thanks @boonebgorges. I will take a closer look at RCP. I spent much of yesterday searching and also found that MemberPress might work. At least it looks like there are options, so it’s not so bad after all.
Modemlooper, thanks, but as I mentioned, I think that’s what I’ve been trying, exactly the way the BuddyPress instructions are written. But when I do that, BuddyPress is only downloading to my own hard drive – not to my WordPress account or Bluehost, or wherever it’s supposed to download to (I really don’t know). A little more detail would help. I’m seriously a WordPress/BuddyPress beginner. 🙂
I’ll try to make this my last question. I think I’m going to purchase and use the BoddyBoss theme. Now that I have already added WordPress to my Bluehost account, I also have to add the BuddyBoss theme and BuddyPress to my Bluehost account as well, is that correct? And does it matter which order I add them in?
I dont mind paying a bit, so let me know if there are any specific pay options you recommend, and if the idea is to use those as a theme, or use them instead of BuddyPress.
Thanks Venutius. The part I find confusing is that all those themes have nice fancy images and layouts, but none of them appear to be anything like an online community layout. If I choose one of the themes from WordPress Themes Directory, is it safe to assume I can easily modify it (without knowing any code) to the look and feel of an online community?
