Talk about confusing… And that I am. I tried another browser and was able to see the missing posts. Firefox’s cache may have been acting up, even though I was continuously refreshing. Still don’t know what’s going on with that. I then tried to log in and add new content from Chrome, but it wouldn’t show the metadata login option. Finally found that there was an inactive metadata widget at the bottom of the widget admin page. I killed it and was thus able to finally log into the site from Chrome. Then I attempted to post a new event onto the events page, but once again, the link was not saved.
So I continue to be at a loss for why the first post seems to work but then additional posts all fail to take.
Your timing is immaculate. I just spotted a help file saying that I needed to delete old bp files in the theme before upgrading to 1.70. So I’d turned it off and was looking at the theme, which is Weaver II. Also searched the Weaver site for issues and they all point back at BP.
I memory is bad on this but I either upgraded to BP 1.71 first before changing to Weaver II, from an older theme called Elbee Elgee, or or visa versa, moved to Weaver and then upgraded from the older version of BP.
Either way, I didn’t have the old BP template pack installed, nor do I see any of files I was told to delete at this link in step 3: https://codex.buddypress.org/bp-17-upgrading-template-packed-themes/
3. Delete the six (6) BP folders transferred to your theme’s folder in server: /activity, /blogs, /forums, /groups, /members, and /registration. If you have a header-buddypress.php, sidebar-buddypress.php and/or a footer-buddypress.php file, delete those too via s/FTP or control panel.
My first action was to roll back the site a week. All the plugins were still current after putting the old database back other than the theme rolled back. Was just rebuilding the theme first before turning BP back on. which will be in a few more minutes…
Oops. I forgot to mention that I’m using the buddypress Activity Plus as a plugin to post links, and multimedia. Its their latest version.
All other plugins were turned off but problem persists.
Will check with WPMU, the creators of Activity Plus as well on this, but just an additional note, no posts, or comments are working…
And just to make it a bit more strange. When I click on the RSS option, all the duplicate posts I mentioned above show up, but the posts the first duplicate posts, that still show up are all deleted, very likely due to my multiple attempts to delete them.
Thanks for the feedback. Looks like they are working on it still, but no idea when it could come out.
Thanks Hugo. That worked.
I imagine it would be a bit trickier to do the same to block out activity streams the same way…
Couldn’t hurt to ask though ?
I tried to do your code on the Themes original profile-loop.php file. I got the following error back:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /wp-content/themes/elbee-elgee/members/single/profile/profile-loop.php on line 58
Line 58 is the last line of the file where your code ” ” is…
Not sure how to ensure that it doesn’t conflict. Here’s the EE profile-loop.php page below… Since I’m a bit new to this, I could certainly copy the original profile-loop.php file into the child theme, but am a bit concerned about me just pasting this new code into it as I don’t know how to identify conflicts other than it not working etc.
<div class="bp-widget “>
Thanks for the reply. I’m having trouble figuring out how to post in anything in the bbPress forum as there is no add new topic option…
Sorry, was looking inside the buddypress plugin rather than the theme.
I’m not using the default theme but a compatible theme called elbee-elgee and am using a child theme that only has functions.php and style.css as editable files.
Another way for lairbear to reduce spam on the activity page not to mention elsewhere is to go into his wp discussion settings and make it a requirement that anybody posting a comment be registered.
I would urge that you consider adding additional options for any member to take their activity page as well as their profile page private so that this doesn’t happen!
I could probably handle cutting and pasting the above code, however, I couldn’t find the file you suggest that I edit. Wasn’t located in buddypress’ plugin editor, nor do I have a file by that name located in bp-members plugin subfolder…
I would also like to see threaded comments added to group forums…
In addition, it would also be fabulous if Forum topics could also be setup to be organized by category. Or better yet, as in some of the nicer online wiki’s the forum directory being able to be edited by the admin so that items in the forum directory and be placed in grouplets or in any order other than first come last posted.
I’d like this on the doc’s plugin as well, but then that’s a plugin!
There is also a minor bug in the Mute – Follow option when the bp – editor plugin is added forums, which results in the follow-mute button being almost completely obscured at the bottom where new comments are to be started.
Found the problem after a zillion hours of looking. Its being caused by the “Bullet Proof Security” plugin and its version of the .htaccess file. The below link shows you how to get the missing code that needs to be copied into your “notes” section of BPS and saved. Once this is done, the problem goes away!
Here’s the fix for this particular problem.
For me it had to do with my use of a security plugin called “Bullet Proof Security” and what it did to my .htaccess file. The link below shows you how to fix this. Just copy the code in your permalink settings on the dashboard at the bottom to your Notes, in the BPS panel and save that code, and the problem will go away.
Actually, my error message a bit different.
You don’t have permission to access /directory of forum topic/ on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I’ve spent hours trying to figure out what this is. I looked at WP Bullet Proof Security as a possible problem within the .htaccess file as well as another suggested solution by wpmu saying that I should go into the database and delete the forum ID number for each post. That’s just crazy. I don’t currently use a database editor, nor are the suggested WP Bullet Proof Security fixes suggested appropriate as they suggest that I go into the .htaccess file and add code in there that I’m not exactly comfortable attempting, especially when the suggestion is to open read/write privledges within the plugins pages, rather within the forum directories this problem is happening. Comments work just fine within any group, just not in the Forum..
Like right now if this was my own forum site, clicking on the Post Reply button will then give the above error message. I’ve got a lot of really major newbies and this error is killing their willingness to post messages, which is a critical part of why I’m using this.
Okay, I had somebody who didn’t have access to the private groups reply back that he was only seeing the appropriate content.
Sorry. Got a bit freaked.
Yeah, I have as well, and posted a new thread requestiong help…
Will continue to search backward and see if I can find a response elsewhere…
There are a number of other moderate issues connected to the RSS feeds.
I’m finding that the RSS feeds are failing to identify posts. for weeks at a time.
Its not clear if this has to do with the WPMU’s Activity Plus plugin , but their posts in some cases only show up in the RSS feed only. This is definitely pretty serious. With these issues, it means that RSS feeds are at best unusable in terms of how they look.
I took a look at the ticket… Wouldn’t it be better to move it to the author field rather than just pull it from the description field? That way the WordPress widget option can use the author info if the blog owner wants to or not.
For me, it would be valuable to figure out a way to actually figure out how to scrape a title out of the first line of input and then use the rest in the description field if that was possible.
