    Yes you need to be registered before you can join groups, joining a group means needing to add the person as a member ID which they can only have if a WP registered user.

    There are plugins though that can do things like auto join groups on registration but to a pre-selected set of groups, if you wanted the user to be able to pre-select a group at registration you would need to write a small function to store a choice as user_meta or similar and recall that when the user activated their account.

    On a side note if you’re working up a child theme based on twentyfifteen it would be a good idea to be running a copy of BP trunk as we will introduce a new series of stylesheets for the WP Twenty* themes which may affect what your styling.

    You need to do some basic research on things like ‘Backing Up’, there are many approaches and solutions out there, from VaultPress service, to backup plugins, to your webhost provided services or cpanel/plesk type site/user account backups.

    The same advice applies for deactivating plugins when you can’t access the admin, rename the plugin directories. That media plugin must have downloaded and installed otherwise it wouldn’t have thrown the error. Deactivate all plugins, update WP and establish that works as expected then re-activate or download a new copy of BP, as you’re so far behind in BP versions you will need to perform stepped upgrades to get to the latest stable version. Check the BP Codex for advice on this aspect.

    Ah right this is why those version requirements are listed and need to be paid attention to.

    Regardless of the plugin issue, this forums advice must start and finish on updating WordPress then BuddyPress it is really inadvisable to run with versions that are this outdated, WP had a major security update around the 4.0 point.

    Please don’t double post it doesn’t get any quicker attention, nor does writing titles in all caps (considered as ‘shouting’) :)

    You will need to rename that plugins directory name using whatever access you have to server files i.e ftp, cpanel etc, that will act to deactivate the plugin and should restore access.

    On a more important note you quote two versions that are very outdated for WP and BP you must upgrade both of these as a matter of urgency as later versions have stability and security fixes.

    Check the Codex documentation, which will guide you on creating a custom buddypress.php page to mirror your themes page.php and in which you could then remove the sidebar from markup.

    ‘scam’ is a rather rude word.

    I suggest that you go and read the Codex, all sections to do with features and getting started then you will be able to ask better informed questions.

    And yes ‘it’ does work!

    Try setting up a proper vhost container and adding a dev domain to your hosts file, the Apache manual and xammp should guide you on this.

    You can pass an array of sizes as you show, so you state the type you want i.e ‘full’ but ensure that the original or full default size is much larger than you need and then size it down per avatar display – does mean you need to look at all calls to display avatars probably to ensure any that attempt to display the default are managed for size.

    The issue is known and being looked into and a correction doubtless will be pushed out very soon, for the moment as John James says roll back to previous version if you have encountered this issue:
    Edit// Remove link to 2.2.2.1 zip should have been 2.2.3 ~hnla

    Edit// Issue is resolved – please see comment below for dealing with dashboard access issues.

    Technically you’re on the wrong forum, you have no instance of BuddyPress running only bbPress and they are two different plugins.

    You might try any of the Title tag plugins out there such as Yoast WP SEO also look at how your theme is handling the title tag in the header and search the WP codex for any guides on filtering the WP title tag to modify the title strings.

    Look for properties like clear: left; or clear: both; or maybe one of those elements which should be floated isn’t, if floated has something given width: 100%, or margins greater than the overall space can accommodate.

    Have you got these errors though with a standard WP theme and no additional plugins running? This is most likely an issue between theme or a plugin interacting with how BP performs and causing the issue/s; we could look and probably find some work around for the padding issue however the other issue is a problem with the @mentions interface and your SC is showing or displaying in the textarea an element attribute which shouldn’t display, why it is can only be guessed at at this stage – if this issue occurred when running one of the WP themes without any other plugins activated we could look further on the basis that it were a bug with BP, but I don’t think I can replicate this on any of my installs.

    @svend-rugaard While it’s great of Henry to try and see what the issue is, please bear in mind there is a limit to the extent of help we can offer on what is a themeing issue with a third party theme and to some extent lies more with the theme to perhaps help out with.

    I don’t see where you modified width and height but if you mean the elements in the li items were dropping through the bottom then really BP should be stating ‘overflow: hidden; on the li element not ‘auto’

    To over rule that (the BP rules) you would need something like:
    #buddypress ul.list-item li { overflow: hidden; }

    Come on guys, please throw us a few crumbs here, this is so frustrating.

    First crumb, this is an open source volunteer driven app, all aspects such as the codex get worked on with what ever free time is available.
    Second crumb, Being community driven means that the project moves at a pace that is dictated by that community and all have the ability to create, edit the codex and help the documentation grow.

    Probably a little before your time but last year a lot of time and effort was put into the codex, this, though, is an ongoing process and we do not say it’s by any means finished or hasn’t heaps of room for improvement and we welcome all contributions to improve it.

    @rosyteddy, you do keep saying BP is free, and imply or state “so nothing will change”, actually look at the amount of development that is carried out in the core development teams free time, frankly it’s phenomenal, BP improves at an incredible pace. Some functionality may rightly be never forthcoming, WP is an app that relies a lot on plugins to extend functionality, BP is the same if you want this type of extended functionality beyond a basic level then it will probably always be thirdparty provided.

    And you’re right there likely will be a comment like core getting too heavy, all this type of added functionality has to be maintained, it adds to the development burden in needing supporting, core needs to do the basics in as solid a manner as possible with additional functionality added in a carefully thought out process, like the member type api or attachments api.

    @ripozzo The best approach is to get as familiar with BP as possible, running local development installs of BP that you can play around with, reading the current codex guides, then helping out on the forum answering any questions you can. Answering forum questions is a great way to get really familiar with BP as it gets you rooting around in BP seeing what the solutions might be.

    When you feel you’re ready to add documentation or see a need and benefit to edit/update existing codex articles drop am @mention to myself @hnla or mercime @mercime and we’ll happily set you up with access on the codex.

    We have started to include pages in the codex that reference any changes to the template files for a given release, as said though the templates seldom do change but when they do we’ll attempt to highlight those changes and to dhow what code changes might need to be effected.

    Try adding it to your functions.php file in your theme or child theme, if that doesn’t work or still not 100% sure check with the themes support who’ll be best placed to advise.

    I have update the thread title to something a little more descriptive of the issue, than ‘problem after updating’

    I do not see confirmation of the results when switching to a WP theme like twentyfifteen or disabling of plugins, we do need requests like those followed please so we can begin to narrow down where the issue lies.

    That’s bbPress not BuddyPress, different plugins, different templates.

    iirc you need to look in bbpress/templates/default/bbpress

    But asking on the appropriate forum will probably get better results.
