@jgwolfensberger I disagree, best practice would be testing on a stage/dev site first and then, upgrade your installation when no problem are found.
Consider for example custom plugins and functions you have in your theme/WP installation, there are not the same as the many other websites with BP out there in the web.
Or was using its own form version and was with bad programming?
I’ve never used Commons In a Box, so I couldn’t say what kind of theme compatibility is necessary to work with it.
I do think you’re using two plugins that perform the same thing, as far as I know about it, CIAB does what BuddyPress does, am I wrong?
Also, check if there has to be some sort of organization in the template structure for it to work. That must likely be the problem in your case.
Here are some suggestions and ideas:
1. and 2. Here you would configure a bit to make the roles do whatever you want when you want it.
3. It is possible to remove it and activate only the messaging component.
4. Today this is easy with the Theme Compatibility and Template Files (https://codex.buddypress.org/themes/theme-compatibility-1-7/a-quick-look-at-1-7-theme-compatibility/)
Sorry, I misunderstood. I’m not sure if the above example would work in a plugin directory.
Try not to repeat all the file path. Just putting:
I personally doesn’t create like that. I bring the files to my themes folder and edit them. This is better for upgrades and I won’t need to create pages.
Example: If I want to have a custom Profile page, I would do the following steps:
1 – Create a folder in my theme called, BuddyPress (wp-content/themes/my-theme/buddypress).
2 – I would copy the profile file from the bp-legacy template in the BP plugin folder and would put in this BuddyPress folder in my template.
3 – Edit the way I liked.
It depends much of what you are trying to do, but this approach solved my problems in a more secure and future-friendly way.
I personally could not say, because you’re showing one random example. In my opinion, and experience with a project that I’m working on, the Codex has been very helpful and with good and solid information. Probably you’re doing something wrong, neither you could say that everything is wrong, just because you’re not being able to accomplish one particular task.
@henrywright One question as this topic interests me a lot.
To make it work, I should replace the html form tags in the bp-legacy/members/single/messages/compose.php with this function or am I missing something here?
If possible, could you put an example, with code?
Thanks in advance!
Also try to use in a test website before putting in your life one, in case something go wrong, as it just did.
I’m sure you can de-register the script and put your own autocomplete script.
I didn’t know there was a limit in the bulk delete. Is it right to have such a limit @henrywright?
I agree. I just think you will see an increase in spam registrations.
Hi @janiceandcompany, put your question also in the bbPress support forum. I think it’s more likely to find a person with the same problem, and solution, there rather than here.
I tried changing here the forum status and it did stop showing to the general users. Are you logged in as an administrator? Or are you seeing this as a general user?
I would totally not recommend to disable it. You should spend more time to figure the problem out. In my BuddyPress test installations (local and live), it sends the emails just fine, so there is a problem, maybe in your server, template, I don’t know, somewhere.
But, if you really wanna disable this, after a quick search here and in Google, I found some possible solutions.
Obs.: I haven’t tested it, so use it at your own risk.
I’m also a little confused in what you’re trying to achieve. Would it be a history, like in notifications, but for the activities?
@cdb3212 As embarrassing as this might sound, I don’t know how Child Themes works exactly, but it seems there is a problem where you are putting it.
Try using @barney92 suggestion, putting it in your functions.php file within your theme and see the result.
I’m aware that BP 2.0 have some bugs related to translation. Are you using a version before 2.0?
Probably because there is already a page named “medlem” or this slug is being used somewhere else. Or there is a redirection.
I’m not sure but it seems that way.
@rudik123 What do you mean by using with BuddyPress? The Ads Manager plugin work with WordPress. To include the file in some BP pages, I think you’d have to alter some templates files.
@jamrizzi Could you share the location of the string so that I could take a look?
I have no idea how to do that, but just to clarify, I think what you are trying to do is exactly what @modemlooper suggested, it appears you’re trying to “change the location” from the groups activity to the user activity, maintaining the proper date, user and etc. Correct?!
If that’s the case, maybe there is a way of automatically copying, with PHP, from the group to the user activity. The user is already set, because it is not gonna change, just the location is gonna change (it’s not gonna continue in the Groups, it’s gonna to the user activity). After copying, you could delete the groups activity and deactivate the Groups Component.
I’m not aware how BuddyPress works with urls, but you would probably need to update to reflect the new location.
@barney92 I think she meant “using”.
@anna_tianna My best advice would be to consult the plugin author, as he/she understand the plugin better than anyone, so that he/she could highlight better how to implement it or implement himself/herself.
As far as your searching and thinking goes, I think the link you provided would help in part, but still the developer (you or a hired one) would need to understand how this plugin you’re using works to integrate with BP.
