    I built a site about four years ago using BP and I had implemented some Java type games on it for users to play and compete against each other tallying scores against one another. Not overly complicated but I never thought this site would “change the world” either I did it more or less for my own amusement. If you have talented developers at your disposal that can do what you need then that is awesome but if you don’t then you may have to do the work yourself as I did. Ultimately my host shut me down because it required to many server resources and I couldn’t afford the pricey money per month they required for dedicated servers. Hopefully that won’t happen to you but I am speaking on plenty of past experience. If you want to change the world with your idea then it is going to cost you a lot of cash more likely than not. Good luck.

    Not sure exactly what you meant to convey by your reply but your wrong in thinking a single BP/WP site has tens of millions of users are using this platform simultaneously even on wordpress.org I am not talking how many members there are I a am talking about how many people can actively be on a site at the same time before it bottlenecks. I don’t know Matt Mullenweg so I have no affiliation in that direction and I kiss no ones ass to get affiliation because I prefer being humble. FB is not a monopoly. There is other competition out there other than FB so I don’t know where your info comes from. Not to be rude but do you even know what a monopoly is?

    Wouldn’t it be nice if someone or a organization would fund the overhead so we could really just test and see how scalable a WP/BP site would be when you have tens of millions of people flocking to the site at one time? That would probably never happen but then again you never know. That it my opinion would be the only way to test WP/BP scalability.

    I was simply referring to the “change the world” statement. I love BuddyPress/WordPress and have developed plugins for it and I never said it was an unusable platform. You are right about BP and niche markets that is one of the awesome uses for BP but niche doesn’t take on the bold task of changing the world. I simply believe you should set realistic goals. In your scenario that would be awesome if that was the case but I am not sure BP or WP could scale to the point that if “everyone” was on the site at one time like the BIG social networks it would handle that kind of traffic without major issues. Apologies to the OP if this is slightly off topic.

    Have you considered pitching your idea on Shark Tank? The reality is that you will not find the best developers unless you have the cash to pay them and though you think this is so important that it will change the world which is a very bold statement the harsh reality is that it will not and no one will remember it even 5 years from now. The reality is you need to set a realistic goal because neither you or myself will do anything groundbreaking that will change the world using BuddyPress because everyone knows when it comes to software you need to have something proprietary like the BIG social networks. Anyway sorry if you don’t agree but I’ve seen so many people come on this forum thinking they are going to create the next BIG world changing social network using BuddyPress when the reality is that is never what BuddyPress was ever intended for. Please don’t take offense to this reply as it is just intended to inform you of the obstacles you will face and the limitations you will find if you truly believe you can change the world using a BP site. Not only that but kids play enough games as is and connect with others all over the world using gaming systems already and all this inspires is for the kids to live at their parents homes until they are 40 years old and never have any real ambition but that is just from what I have seen in real life experience. Good luck!

    Untested but place the below code in bp-custom.php

    
    function bp_help_redirect_to_members_page(){
    if( !is_user_logged_in() && !bp_is_register_page() && !bp_is_activation_page() ) {
    bp_core_redirect( get_option('home') . '/members/' );
    }
    }
    
    add_action( 'template_redirect', 'bp_help_redirect_to_members_page',1);
    

    Good luck!

    Maybe this will help. I think the only thing that is changed though is now you would make the edit on lines 36 and 56 and you would probably want to copy that js file into your themes buddypress folder. I am a bit rusty though so I may be wrong.

    I hope this doesn’t sound dumb for asking but have you installed WordPress? Reason being is BuddyPress and bbPress are WordPress plugins so having WordPress installed is a prerequisite to using BuddyPress and bbPress. Again sorry if its a dumb question.

    Not sure if that code still works but you could place it in bp-custom.php:

    https://codex.buddypress.org/themes/bp-custom-php/

    or in your themes functions.php

    Go to dashboard/menus and in the top right corner click screen options and make sure the box beside buddypress is checked. Once checked you will see the options to add buddypress items in the edit menus tab. Good luck!

    Have you tried activating the twenty-fifteen theme included in WP to see if the issue persists? I am assuming your issue is coming from the “BeeTube” theme which is a premium theme that we don’t have access to so if after activating the twenty-fifteen theme fixes the issue then you will need to contact the “BeeTube” themes support to help figure out what the issue is with the theme. After all when you paid for the theme you should be entitled to some degree of support from them.
    Good luck!

    I am not sure this is possible at this time but maybe someone else can chime in because I may be wrong because member types is still fairly new to BP and I have yet to play around with it.

    You will need to supply more info on your setup in order for the community to help. Please supply WP/BP versions, theme, and plugins used. Thanks!

    Just out of curiosity what role editors are you referring to so the OP can explore that route and can these role editors allow you to assign moderators that wouldn’t have full admin rights? For instance could you as an admin assign a moderator that could edit the activity stream and forum topics without them being able to view the other users PM’s? If so that may be what the OP needs. Thanks!

    While I appreciate your concern on the OP’s topic you should also be aware that most social network admins including the big ones you may be using have access to PM’s as well as IP’s and Internet Service Providers. If your that paranoid about who has access to your data then I suppose the best policy would be not to volunteer it by joining in the first place of course this is just my honest opinion.

    The part which made me think it was a bug was when I opened the test user’s message from viewing their profile, it brought me to my own profile, but displayed the user’s messages.

    I can’t replicate this behavior but as an admin I can go to a members PM’s they have sent and view them. It didn’t take me as an admin to my own profile and show up in my PM’s.
