I’m so sick of this I think I’m going to disable blogs. not sure this is worth the headache anymore.
for me, the ultimate solution to this would be for WPMU to allow username signups only and at the same time only allow logged in users to create blogs.
they have these options separately, but it doesn’t work together like I would like.
that way if it’s a bot, they wouldn’t sign up if they couldn’t get a blog. chances are they wouldn’t sign up, wait for the email, then log in, and then create a blog. to much work possibly.
any updates on fixing the buggyness of this site?
yipeee! glad to hear it will get the attention is so deserves. i hate for people to get a bad impression of buddypress from buddypress.org
here is an example, hope this helps.
yep, and I still have to log out every time i want to reply to a forum, and log back in at the bottom of the page.
I just tested on testbp.org and they are correct. It is a bug.
I’ve been at this for 2+ years now, doing a social niche site. Started back in August of 2007. I had always wanted to create a niche community site, but didn’t know where to go. I found WPMU first and started my community on it. WPMU alone was a great platform. I plugged and patched and mangled together to the best of my ability a “community” site. When I look back on my beginnings and site launch, it wasn’t pretty, but mostly functional. I had friends, mail, blogs, blah blah blah… I had heard about buddypress when it barely had a site, but it was never really polished enough. I think it was recommended to me by andrea over in the WPMU forums. It wasn’t polished enough at the time in it’s infancy, so I looked at Elgg and just didn’t like it either. Even the install process was clunky so I stayed the course with WPMU. I remember the second time I came upon buddypress and was like WOW, this is everything I was looking for. I couldn’t wait until launch day of 1.0.
With as little coding skills as I have (you would laugh if you saw my component code), I have been able to manage and run a VPS with buddypress for almost a year now. I love how buddypress started, the members, and Andy (in a non gay way, lol). I’m trying to slowly build my community (around 140 active) and then really expand away from the default look of buddypress, which I actually happen to love.
So, is it a good enough for a professional grade community? I would say Y-E-S!
Take a look at how fast testbp.org is with 12,229 “active” members. A lot of activity on that site and it’s still cooking!
any ideas guys? i would really like to convert to 1.1.1 but can’t until I get my component converted and working.
I haven’t gotten my component converted to 1.1 yet, so I haven’t gotten to this stage yet. have you had any luck thomasbp?
Hey guys, I’m getting the same error. I tried your steps Andy and no go.
I’m on a brand new install of BP 1.1.1 and WPMU 2.8.4a
If I activate it site wide I get the white screen of death and it crashes the entire site. If I just activate it I get the error below.
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare bp_example_register_widgets() (previously declared in /var/www/vhosts/domain.net/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/bp-example/bp-example-templatetags.php:16) in /var/www/vhosts/domain.net/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/bp-example/bp-example-widgets.php on line 65
OK, all these functions are already present (similar) in my component since I am using the skeleton component. I guess what I don’t understand is what “starts the ball rolling”. what are those functions looking for from my component in order to start the chain reaction of logging the site wide activity?
that make sense?
yeah, no doubt. it’s not stable, just for testing on a dev box. good point.
or you could download the latest trunk
