    What you need to do is go to the admin.. and go to Permalink.. and press “save” for whatever reason.. this happens from time to time.. you dont need to make any changes.. just go to
    admin->settings->permalink
    and just press save.

    I totally understand what you mean about having your product stack working out of the box.

    – Suggestion.. I wish you guys would have an “escape” export OUT of Buddyboss and back to BP. *its just a piece of mind thing.

    The attraction that I have with BP/WP is that I dont “feel” locked in to a software provider.. its a bit unreasonable of course.. but it just keeps me “feeling free”

    **BONUS**

    I think i would feel better paying the price (dont get me wrong.. its reasonably priced) if the Buddyboss platform would also address mobile-first-pagespeed. It drives me crazy that every site I launch on BP/WP scores poorly on googles pagespeed test. — its pretty clear that the main reason for this are loading a bunch of JS and CSS.. certainly there are many reasons why a site scores poorly but it would great if BuddyBoss Platform solved for some of that.

    – How compatible is BuddyBoss Platform with the caching plugins like WP-SuperCache (and the like)

    Im just a BP/WP hobbyist so Im sensitive to the “annual license renewal fee” – How does your renewal fees work? Is the renewal fee the same price as the initial purchase price?

    LASTLY (I swear its the last question)

    I’ve noticed that I still rely on WP plugins that interact with posts.. is the BuddyBoss Platform and Theme overall (reasonably) compatible with other WP plugins out there?

    Im a few weeks in to diving in Community Builder theme by BuddyDev and Its pretty sophisticated.
    SOOO MUCH customization!!!!

    Anyway..

    Im loading it up on one of my sites https://throttle.network and the site when viewed on mobile moves side-to-side .. as if theres content to the right or left .. that overflows…

    how do i configure it so that i remove the side-to-side movement … so that users can only go up and down

    is it a media-screen size thing? or is a “BOXED/FLUID” layout percentage thing.. Ive tried changing the percentages .. nothing works

    @buddyboss

    your themes are just FREAKING AMAZING!!!!! I really love them

    quick questions..

    – The last time I installed BuddyBoss Platform.. it “conflicted” with my BP install.. (is that still the case? you can only either have BuddyBoss installed or BP installed..)

    – Can you use the BuddyBoss Platform Theme on a BP install? (meaning without the BuddyBoss Platform)

    – I noticed that the only theme available now is the Boss 2.0. Will you be only making themes for BuddyBoss Platform and will you be transitioning out of further developing the Boss 2.0 theme or other themes just for BP

    **
    Again.. Im such a huge fan.. really fantastic work

    WOW!!!
    I just installed it.. and IT LOOKS amazing!!!!

    Im trying to get the styling down..
    a few goofy things here and there on the customizer
    For example.. Font on site-title doesnt look like its working properly when its on mobile
    anyway.. im loving it so far! *Its almost exactly what im looking for.

    WOW!!!
    heres my link to my project in which im testing it out https://filmschool.network/

    I used a code-snippet

    add_filter( 'bp_login_redirect', 'bpdev_redirect_to_profile', 11, 3 );
     
    function bpdev_redirect_to_profile( $redirect_to_calculated, $redirect_url_specified, $user ){
     
        if( empty( $redirect_to_calculated ) )
            $redirect_to_calculated = admin_url();
     
        //if the user is not site admin,redirect to his/her profile
     
        if( isset( $user->ID) && ! is_super_admin( $user->ID ) )
            return bp_core_get_user_domain( $user->ID );
        else
            return $redirect_to_calculated; /*if site admin or not logged in,do not do anything much*/
     
    }

    That code-snippet goes in your theme function

    your site looks pretty great. Im sorry a little late to reply.. but it looks like you sorted out the theme problem?

    …out of curiosity –which theme are you using. It looks great.

    @wayneg03

    yeah… its tough going here – in these parts of the internet..

    To try to answer some of your questions..

    — for testing purpose.. try using the twentytwenty theme..
    — #2 YOURDOMAIN_NAME/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=bp-components
    **make sure “USER-GROUPS” is selected..
    then go to YOURDOMAIN__NAME/wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-groups
    or try going to YOURDOMAIN_NAME/groups/create/step/group-details/

    — #3 Try going to YOURDOMAIN_NAME/wp-admin/nav-menus.php

    @fabrizio1407

    I suggest creating a child-theme that targets the specific BP pages.

    If you just want to add background images – i think you can do that via CSS

    You can get away with a lot of look&feel by just doing a default cover image

    BuddyPress Default Cover Photo

    @nukeban buddyboss is running I am/was a customer

    You should give there boss theme a try. It’s very turnkey. They also have a theme called one social that works really well. Both out of the box works fantastic

    @buddyboss

    Thank you for clarifying. I was a bit confused how the new buddyboss system worked. For sure – choosing between Ultimate Member vs Buddyboss – I’d definitely choose Buddyboss because of its pedigree in the BP community.

    Thanks for great software and keep up the fire!

    @sbrajesh any chance to get an early preview of the theme? 😉

    I stand by what I said.


    @buddyboss
    makes great themes and products but its premium.
    — as great as the free plugin is.. –a site administrator will benefit great by implement the buddyboss premium theme.

    Dare I say that — the free plugin looses its appeal without the utilization of a premium theme.

    I personally love the “Boss.” theme ($129USD) and the “OneSocial” theme($99USD). — Though I havent used them in the past 2 years – I suspect they are still of great quality. I also havent used the “BuddyBoss Theme” (Which starts at $228USD)

    The new Buddyboss Theme looks a lot like FB and seems like a great option for someone that wants a great looking turnkey solution.

    @wfdeanb
    If you want something turnkey.. i’d go with @buddyboss https://www.buddyboss.com/online-community-software/

    – its pretty fast to get started
    – it works out of the box
    – its literally the fastest and easiest way to get what you described (there theme even looks like FB)
    – premium (not free)

    (disclaimer: I dont work for buddyboss nor am i an affiliate)

    Wow… Great write up.. Very easy to follow!

    Do you post often about BP?


    coolhunt

    @coolhunt

    @ripulkr
    yeah – i totally agree with you on this one.

    It would be cool to have a BP “co-pilot” plugin that allows people to mod “BP” minimizing breakage and maintaining compatibility with other plugins.

    One thing that annoys me is that i have to constantly look for BP plugins to extend some of its features.. and the constant fear that one of these plugins will get hacked..


    coolhunt

    @coolhunt

    @ripulkr

    although BP works with any theme.. i often find myself add too much BP specific CSS tweaks in the customizer

    Im trying to keep things as simple as possible and even with twenty seventeen theme – there are some css tweaks that need to happen.

    it makes sense — simply because WP is “blog first” so most content is goofy on how it renders and presents BP pages.

    As far as I can tell buddyboss is the only game in town that does a great job of having clean design and straighforward code.

    my BP-Theme-wish list

    1) BP first *which focuses on great Activity page presentation, Members Directory Presentation & Great Member profiles.

    2) Mobile First approach would be super awesome. Most people view profiles and not necessarily doing actual “activity” post. So if someone can figure out a great way to render fast and beautiful activity/members-directory/member-profiles that is very readable on mobile it would be super awesoome.

    3) Great use of Menus/Accordions — The way BP works right now on members pages is TERRIBLE on mobile. You have scroll past the cover photo -> then pass the Avatar –> then pass 4 menu items to see any content of the users in the Members Profiles page.

    4) Great use of Member Profile Fields — I think by default as a “2 column table layout” to render the profile fields is not great.

    **I totally understand that the newest release of BP has interesting pre-built options but even with the default twenty-twenty theme it doesnt look great.

    Some thoughts..

    — The username in the profile page when too long looks weird and awkward — using CSS to ‘breakword’ is OK.
    — The Profile Field Name should be studied on how to render that well..
    — The Profile Field entries like (text fields, radial buttos, list, etc..) should have a better readable standard implementation like.. *This one is hard because you dont know the exact uses of each unique BP installs..
    — The Menus should be “slidable” on mobile so that the user doesnt have to scroll all the way down to start reading whats on that persons profile.

    *** It would be great if someone (some BP expert) post an Ultimate BP/CSS guide that shows how to target each of the BP specific elements… without doing theme surgery.. like a cut&paste into the CSS customizer –BONUS if it can include media queries 🙂

    anyway.. rant over..

    I think it would be an amazing achievement!
    *Ironically – even – though BP “works” with any theme. 🙂

    Seriously, its a bit of a holy grail to find an official WP theme from WP.org/com that works beautifully with CP.

    Most of the themes out there have a “blog first” approach — which isnt bad — BUT I would love to see a free theme that does the basics of BP extremely well.

    For now.. I typically tend to use Twenty Seventeen Theme.. or try to use @buddyboss if i have cash to spare..

    im deeply bummed that twenty twenty theme doesnt look great using BP
