Turns out it might be a bug after all, or at the very least an incompatibility.
If a plugin calls ‘get_template_directory()’ on any page other than the blog (ie if it runs on the admin panel) BuddyPress intercepts the call and rewrites the theme directory thus killing all your themes.
Thanks for all your help.
(I had Maintenance Mode on, which I activated when I upgraded.)
Also tried upping to 1.0.2. No fix.
With BP Deactivated:
Site Admin -> Themes, 7 Installed, 4 Active (all WP Themes)
Appearance -> Themes, 4 to choose from
As soon as I activate BP:
Site Admin -> Themes, 3 Installed, 0 active (all BP Themes)
Appearance -> Themes, ZERO to choose from
Per Burt, tried reinstalling both WPMU and BP. No luck.
Everything is great, I activate BP, and then I don’t have access to my WP themes, anywhere.
I guess as Andy pointed out, its not a universal bug, and as a result have been trying to track down the filter that replaces the theme_root, at the very least to make an ugly hack to keep things running. Any suggestions in that dept.?
Burt & Mike –
Thanks for the prompt reply. Tried upgrading both manually and with the built-in plugin install function. Also tried clearing out the BP tables from the database (the site has not launched yet) hoping that would kick things into shape.
2.7.1 was the first and only version of WPMU installed, upgraded BP from 1.0 to 1.0.1 and that’s when the themes died. Also, no hyphens in the themes’ directories.
Went through the code and was able to see what you were talking about in terms of setting the theme_root variable to /bp-themes/, but any idea why it would be doing so outside of member pages?
If the plugin is active, if I go to /wpmu-themes.php or /wpmu-blogs.php? in the WPMU backend, to activate themes all I see are the BP themes. Correct me if I’m wrong, but before it would also show me themes in the /themes/ directory as well. Is this an intended function? I’d prefer not to move my non BP themes into the bp-themes/ as disabling BP would then kill the site.
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
