Hear hear! BuddyPress is an incredible piece of software. I am so grateful to Andy and all those that support and add to the coding.
problem solved. see https://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=428&replies=3#post-1845
I had the same problem with my member theme until I tracked down this post: I was putting the member theme in the themes directory along with BuddyPress Home theme. What threw me was the fact that in the pre beta releases the member theme WAS located in the themes directory. A bit confusing, but an easy fix.
I would be very, very interested in this given the focus of my site: http://whiteblackthepenguin.net/
Here’s my alpha site that could be much beta…
Thanks for the tip!
Yesterday I reinstalled for what I had hoped was to be the last time (at least for a little while) worpressmu and buddypress using the subdirectory rather than subdomain option for new blogs. My plan was to simply create a news blog, since that works (as noted by chriscarter) â€” it isn’t as elegant because you can’t use the buddypress home theme (unless you want whole new buddypress blog with its own useres, etc.). Nevertheless, it works.
I just checked with bluehost, and they told me that I cannot use the subdomain option on bluehost. Maybe that simply means I need to modify the database DNS wildcard, but for the moment I am sticking with subdirectories for blogs and a new news blog â€” and hoping I can find a way to fiddle with the appropriate php code in buddypress wpmu.
Please feel free to check out the site, just realize its very alpha and could be much beta ; ) â€” http://whiteblackthepenguin.net/
I am having a similar problem.
When I go to my ‘news section,’ I get an ‘Error 404 – Not Found’ message in the blog area.
I reinstalled wpmu, but chose the subdomain option instead of the sub-directory option for new blogs. I then was able to get to the news blog (root blog), but could not create new blogs that work â€” the URL bumps me to OpenDNS and the mesage ‘We did not find any results for: [ blog.mydomain] Please try a new query above’ Note: my server is bluehost.
I have reinstalled everything a couple of times using both approaches and get the same results
So… unless I can figure this out, I have to choose between not having a functioning news section under buddypress, or no being able to create new blogs.
