Event Espresso uses the WP login/registration, but they also check and locks a lot of the functions in wp-login.php before they can be called. This has only been recently, but i think it was done to enable users to go through the registration process without leaving the event checkout page. Before recent, when signing up for a new account and event, you would have to leave the page to activate your account and then start the process of ordering again. not ideal really.
Its not perfect in all honesty. I think il try some of the other options out on my local server see what they work like. Although i wont be using them on the website in question as we have already purchased the license for our current system. And modified it now.
It does indeed. There are a few development teams that specialise in both pieces of software. It is pretty good for it out of the box but once you start getting specific with your events and user management you need some custom code.
We have a small chunk of code that will grab new users, work out which event they have signed up for and insert them into 2 BuddyPress groups based on the location of the event they have signed up for.
Im not a PHP developer though so im not too sure of the exact details of how it works together.
To be honest though, i never had chance to look into alternatives to either Event Espresso or BuddyPress. The website and plugins were already installed when i started working on the project. Most of what i have learnt about them both so far has been trial, error, headbutt keyboard and repeat.
I have worked out though that it is definitely an issue with BuddyPress and EE (after all that). It seems the BuddyPress login and registration takes precedence over the Event Espresso one.
It also seems to be creating new users as moderators as well. But thats a different story and isnt a BuddyyPress issue.
Thanks for that. Im still trying to work out where it is breaking so im just asking the same question on all support forums for the plugins that i use.
A shot in the dark, but can you think of anything that could cause the EE and BuddyPress to stop working? I know that they are both popular plugins and people do use them in conjunction with each other.
In my install the link is ‘forums’.
Id be inclined to believe id made a spelling mistake, but its spelt the same in both functions and one is working, the other is not.
my bp-custom.php file
define('BP_GROUPS_DEFAULT_EXTENSION' ,'forums'); define('BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT' , 'forums');
the first one is commented out currently, but if I uncomment it I get a 404. If I comment it out again and refresh the page, it will work.
Its when i try to go to the group forums i get the problem. As stated the default profile view works fine.
As a point, I have tried changing ‘forums’ to ‘forum’ and this had no effect.
Could you find the RSS button element and hide it using CSS?
I imagine there would be a little bit more to it, but it seems the easiest way. I dont know which element you would need to select though.
Would something like Woo Commerce do what you wanted? I know its compatible with WordPress. I’ve never used it though so I don’t know.
Magento is good but complicated, I have vague memories of seeing some plugins for WordPress that work with Magento.
This is what i was beginning to think.
I understand adding them in categories and forums. Its selecting the Category for the group i need to do. Oh well, hopefully this will be possible in later versions of BuddyPress.
Forums 1, 2 and 3 are all forums. I have them as children of ‘forum category’. Im wanting to select ‘forum category’ for the groups themselves.
The only reason i have for this really is there are a few groups already with their own forums and eventually there will be a lot more. Im trying to keep the forums tidy before they get too large.
Hi sorry about that.
Im using them as you have them set out in your example there.
BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT works when set to ‘forums’
Its the BP_GROUPS_DEFAULT_EXTENSION that doesnt seem to work. And that is also set as ‘Forums’
hope that helps
