Users can upload profile pictures (in theory) however I was not able to upload a picture. I kept getting a http error.
Do you do anything like upload the media library onto Amazon S3 or some other cloud service?

BuddyPress Activity Plus
Have you tested disabling this plugin to see if it had any affect?
Buddy press is activated on a per site basis in a multi-site, multi-network installation.
Multi-network is a pretty advanced configuration, so to cover bases, it would be interesting to know what you’ve done to enable multi-network in both WordPress and BuddyPress, please?
BuddyPress 2.4 — probably due out this week — changes multi-line text area fields to use TinyMCE, like the WordPress post editor.
Wonder if this is related to https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6685 ?
Someone told me it stopped working a release or two back, so no.
I agree a context-sensitive @group is a good idea. I don’t think anything wider reach than “All friends” or “all group members” is a great idea because of how noisy it would be on any decently-sized BP site, but super glad to see you’re exploring the idea in a plugin. That’s how you find out what works and prove the idea
Pretty sure next set of templates will have members as a grid, yes. All of the popular third-party BuddyPress themes have done it like this, so we’d be foolish to not do the same.
Regardless of how you added the users, if you chose to not have emails sent, you need find a WordPress plugin that will do this for you (if any exist — resending emails is a bit niche).
If you added them through BuddyPress on the front-end, emails should have been sent out. I’d start investigating the mail configuration on your server to check it is correctly set up to deliver email.
I am looking into how promptly we may be closing old discussion threads (if we leave them open, someone replies to them months or years later, normally with a “did anyone ever find a solution” etc”, and the discussion’s out of date). I can’t see any threads that you’ve started recently that have been closed, so I’m assuming you meant generally.
Also, we appreciate your feedback. This isn’t the first time you’ve complained about some of the design/theming aspects of BuddyPress, but unfortunately threads like this don’t help us make the software better. You’re more likely to get a better response if you share unconstructive comments like these on your own site/blog rather than these support forums (if you do, be sure to link us here to it so we can go read it). Thanks.
We’ve been testing against PHP7 nightly releases for a long time. It helps that our PHP is newer than most of WordPress’, so we have less really old stuff to migrate.
You can view our test coverage on https://travis-ci.org/buddypress/BuddyPress/ (“PHP: nightly” is PHP7), as you can see, there’s currently a failure with one test that we need to fix. It looks fairly straightforward to fix, and we’ll do that soon.
This one test aside, to the best of knowledge, yes, BuddyPress works with PHP 7.
If the SQL operation was carried out successfully (eventually), BP will have bumped a database version number, and next time, it wouldn’t have checked for schema updates.
Don’t want to vouch for security without actually testing it, but I like the idea of allowing field values to be parsed for oembeds, so I’ve created a ticket to capture the idea: https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6603
@reggie3 what version did you upgrade from?
I think you’re going to need to copy/paste the name of each city into a dropdown box field type. I don’t think there’s any easy or quick way of doing this.*
*There are more developer-orientated ways to do this, but if I were doing this, I’d just keep it simple as you only have to do it once.
@ajarnonline Please don’t create duplicate topics: https://buddypress.org/support/topic/buddypress-xprofile-rich-text-field/
You’re only going to get the same answer.
If that’s the exact code you’re using (and it hasn’t been mangled by the forum), you need to use
"marks instead of
'for PHP to convert the
\ninto a newline.
You’re wrong — we do care about feedback, so thank you for sharing yours. You’re totally correct that there’s several plugins in town that offer features of part of BuddyPress (or in Peepso’s case, all of it), and that the biggest distinguishing feature that they have seems to be the visual appearance. It is important, and as a contributor to BuddyPress, I personally always focus on making the BuddyPress experience better for these types of new users (not just for developers, etc), so what you say makes a lot of sense.
We took a decision perhaps two years ago to make sure BuddyPress worked on every theme. To achieve this, we decided on an approach where we made the look/feel as minimal and generic as possible. The compromise means that right now, BuddyPress doesn’t offer a really strong visual appeal. What we’ll do in the future, I’m not sure yet, but we have had more discussions about the next approach to a new set of BuddyPress template in the last 6 months than we’ve had in the years prior to it, which I take as positive.
It feels like a long time away saying hopefully we’ll look much better in the six months, but there’s so many cool features and enhancements to work on, and it’s a matter of each individual contributor being able to contribute their time on working on whatever they personally want to do.
Part of the solution for BuddyPress is to find some great WordPress theme developers who are interested in helping out with that part of BuddyPress; someone could come in and really define the look of BuddyPress for 2016. If anyone out there reading this is interested, but isn’t sure how to get started, just send me a message (paul at buddypress.org).
Not a bug, Hugo just didn’t grant you access. I’ve given
bobbingwideeditor permission on codex.buddypress.org, @herbmiller — thanks for contributing.
@hnla — “bobbingwide” is not listed on the codex.bp.org/wp-admin/users.php page.
This was a great success. Write-up coming soon on the website! Thanks for coming.
@hnla you need to add the user as an editor in wp-admin
