And realised that I still had multisite enabled (which I dont want to use). The bottom of the page mentioned thas it doesn’t work with directory switches such as this, so I took away the line (define ( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true ) in the wp_config file and everything works fine now.
Thanks Vera, but I figured that nasty issue out earlier. Actually found the .dist file on my other machine in the meantime, but if I use it as the .htaccess file if returns a server error (500).
That was only a guess at the problem anyway – it might not actually be the issue. Like I said it’s only those specific links that reference a user page. It’s a funny one. Ill try add more info as I investigate.
Anybody else have any idea where permalink data may be held for Buddypress?
