  • Seems like every time for me! Have a great one too!

    And of course I figured it out.

    I just created a new action and placed it before do_action( ‘bp_adminbar_menus’ ); and outside of the ul.

    Ive added bp-custom.php file and all works fine. Im just trying to wrap my head around getting the navigation to appear before the log in and sign up links.

    Any ideas? Im sure its something so simple and Im just not seeing it.

    Ive reverted back to the default BP theme and I’m still having the same issue.

    I was able to find a solution to this issue.

    Appearance -> BP Compatibility -> uncheck Disable BP Template Pack JS / AJAX

    why not use recaptha for registration?

    Have you updated your htaccess?


    I am not using a caching plugin.

    I tried setting cookie_domain to,, and and none of those work.

    Would debugging provide any info?

    Also, just realized that this issue is only happening in Safari and Chrome. Could it be a cookie issue?


    @enderandrew I mean 1.2.9

    Also, if anyone wants to to do some solid reading on custom post types:

    Custom post types in WordPress

    I found issues with Custom Post Types and page titles with the current Buddypress. Page Titles wouldnt display correctly so I needed to create a custom function.

    ‘function bpcustom_get_page_title() {
    global $bp, $post, $wp_query, $current_blog;

    if ( is_front_page() || ( is_home() && bp_is_page( ‘home’ ) ) ) {
    $title = __( ‘Home’, ‘buddypress’ );

    } else if ( bp_is_blog_page() ) {
    $pt_label = ‘Blog’;
    if($post->post_type != ‘post’){
    $pt = get_post_type_object($post->post_type);
    $pt_label = $pt->labels->name;
    if ( is_single() ) {
    $title = __( $pt_label . ‘ | ‘ . $post->post_title, ‘buddypress’ );
    } else if ( is_category() ) {
    $title = __( $pt_label . ‘ | Categories | ‘ . ucwords( $wp_query->query_vars ), ‘buddypress’ );
    } else if ( is_tag() ) {
    $title = __( $pt_label . ‘ | Tags | ‘ . ucwords( $wp_query->query_vars ), ‘buddypress’ );
    } else if ( is_page() ){
    $title = $post->post_title;
    } else
    $title = __( $pt_label, ‘buddypress’ );

    } else if ( !empty( $bp->displayed_user->fullname ) ) {
    $title = strip_tags( $bp->displayed_user->fullname . ‘ | ‘ . ucwords( $bp->current_component ) );

    } else if ( $bp->is_single_item ) {
    $title = ucwords( $bp->current_component ) . ‘ | ‘ . $bp->bp_options_title . ‘ | ‘ . $bp->bp_options_nav[$bp->current_component][$bp->current_action];

    } else if ( $bp->is_directory ) {
    if ( !$bp->current_component )
    $title = sprintf( __( ‘%s’, ‘buddypress’ ), ucwords( BP_MEMBERS_SLUG ) );
    $title = sprintf( __( ‘%s’, ‘buddypress’ ), ucwords( $bp->current_component ) );

    } else if ( bp_is_register_page() ) {
    $title = __( ‘Create an Account’, ‘buddypress’ );

    } else if ( bp_is_activation_page() ) {
    $title = __( ‘Activate your Account’, ‘buddypress’ );

    } else if ( bp_is_group_create() ) {
    $title = __( ‘Create a Group’, ‘buddypress’ );

    } else if ( bp_is_create_blog() ) {
    $title = __( ‘Create a Blog’, ‘buddypress’ );

    if ( defined( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’ ) ) {
    $blog_title = get_blog_option( $current_blog->blog_id, ‘blogname’ );
    } else {
    $blog_title = get_blog_option( BP_ROOT_BLOG, ‘blogname’ );

    return apply_filters( ‘bp_page_title’, $blog_title . ‘ | ‘ . esc_attr( $title ), esc_attr( $title ) );

    Here you go.

    <li class="last selected”><a href="profile”>Profile

  • <a href="/login” class=””>
  • `

But if you rename it and dont add and secrurity, they can find it again! It really does do much.

Just use captcha, keep it up to date. Only all registered users to comment. Only allow someone who has a preapproved comment to comment.

And you’ll be fine.

Changing slugs doesnt do any good.

Actually, changing your registration slug wont do much. The spammers will just find the page again and then youldd have to change your registration slug again.

Its best to add capthca to your registration and to your comments.

have you customized your code at all? I had a similar issue and it turns out, I left out the do_action before and after.

are you using recapthca? You should use this on comments and or registrtion. Should squash a few of those spammers.

Or you could hold their comment for moderation and block those users and or ip address.

I have a similar issue where users sign up, get the activation email but are sent to a page asking for an activation key to be entered in an input field. One member on this site told me the key is the in the url. Sure, I realize that. But how do the users know that?


Looks like ill have to add some text to that email stating that incasae they are prompted with that field.

There is no indication that that needs to be done.

so youre saying, a user needs to copy the key string and paste it in to the input field where im being asked to enter my activation key?

why do I think thats wrong?

@Andrea_r Yes, I understand that the link is the activation. But where is the activation code that its asking me to enter…

As I stated in previous posts…..

when I click the link, I am sometimes taken to a page where im asked to enter a activation key. But there is no activation key in the email. Just a link.

Clicking the link doesn’t add the activation code in the input field does it? Where is the email with the activation code that needs to be entered in to input

@Andrea_r Nope, cant post a link cause its not live yet and client would freak.

Here’s what happens.

I get an email. It contains an activation link. If I click that link, sometimes im taken to a page that asks for an activation key to be entered in to an field. But I never received an activation key.

@Andrea_r so youre saying there are two emails? One with the link and another with the key?

If thats the case, Why does one email come through with the link and the other doesnt?
