  • Hi @mociofiletto

    Thanks for contributing to Italian translation. I confirm strings should be fine. The %s placeholder is replaced by a link looking like this:

    '<a href="">' . __( 'Text of the link', 'buddypress' ) .'</a>'

    The survey results will be posted soon 😉

    Hi everyone, thanks a lot for reporting this issue.

    warned us about it <3 and as it touches to a sensitive part of BuddyPress capability system, we took the time to find the best solution to this issue.

    It will be fixed into BuddyPress 7.0.0 (our next major version). 7.0.0-beta1 is expected to be released in 2 weeks from now. Please test it when it will be available to confirm it’s fixing your issues.


    Hi @neets1604

    Thanks for your feedback and thanks for using BuddyPress for 3 years. This email issue happens in BuddyPress because some custom code is overriding our PHPMailer class, that’s the reason why we haven’t identified this issue during our beta release period.

    I’d like to remind you it’s important when users have specific configurations that they gives us a hand to identify these cases during the BuddyPress beta release periods: we cannot test all Themes, all plugins extending BuddyPress and all users specific configurations.

    There’s a plugin to make it easier to test our beta releases, I’d advise you to use it on a staging site to contribute to the project.

    Finally, the upgrade that will fix this issue will be available for download next monday.

    Hi @alexhal

    The 6.3.0 milestone still has issues to fix see:

    We’ll try to fix them and package the 6.3.0 release early next week, but please understand the Members of the BuddyPress Core Team are volunteers that freely give their time to the BuddyPress open source project and do their best for all BuddyPress users.

    Thanks in advance for your understanding.

    hi @olamyklebost

    I believe the best in this case is to download BuddyPress again and replace the one you have on your server with this downloaded version.

    Hi @msntayler,

    If you’re using WordPress 5.5, it now uses a new version of the PHPMailer library. We have moved to this new version in 6.2 so it can explain some third party plugins using the deprecated library are failing. Try to reach the “email subscription” plugin author to see if it is overriding the default mailer we use, if so it should update its implementation using the PHPMailer library available in WP 5.5. It can alternatively stop overriding our default mailer.

    Hi @webmasterfreya

    Thanks a lot for your alert about this issue. We will package a new maintenance release asap to fix it.

    For more details, see

    Thanks for your feedback and update @teleputer 😉

    Awesome! Thanks a lot, for interested contributors, you can follow progress here:

    Hi, thanks for your feedback. @vapvarun Do you think we could work on a patch for 7.0.0 development cycle about this ?

    Hi @mickysoft,

    BP Blocks are coming with very generic styles, it’s possible your active theme needs some specific work in this area. I advise you to read the “Using a custom stylesheet for a BP Block” section of this development note.

    Hi looks like there’s an issue with the “megamenu plugin” at line 7 > /wp-content/themes/ekommart/inc/megamenu/megamenu.php. Have you tried to deactivate this plugin ?

    Sorry I’ve just read about this issue. Having it fixed in 6.0.0 seems difficult as there’s no ticket about it in Trac and the release is scheduled to the end of this month. If it’s just adding a hook available in the /wp-login.php page then, why not but if Plugins adding these checkboxes are using different hooks it can be challenging.

    Could you open a ticket on Trac ( ) and eventually find out what is the name of the WP hook these plugins are using to try to have it fixed asap ?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi @giuseppecuttone

    Thanks a lot for your feedback. I’ll take a look at it asap.

    Hi, I advise you to check if the wp-content/uploads directory of your WordPress can be used by the http user to write/delete files and create/delete sub directories. When you upload a group avatar, check if a file named like this wp-content/uploads/group-avatars/{group_id}/{name-of-your-file}.[jpg|png|gif] exists.

    Is it possible to upload user avatars ?

    Hi @mohamedbakry83,

    In this case you’ll need to copy the email template into a /buddypress/assets/email/single-bp-email.php file of your active theme and edit it from theme to include a new template tag.

    something like:

    <?php mohamedbakry83_output_avatar(); ?>

    Then in a bp-custom.php file, you’ll need to include new function for this template tag:

    function mohamedbakry83_output_avatar() {
      $token = '{{recipient.avatar}}';
      printf( '<img src="%s">', $token );

    In this file, you’ll need to use & adapt the filter @shanebp pasted in his first reply making sure to check $formatted_tokens['friend-requests.url'] & $formatted_tokens[''] are set and then set the recipient.avatar token like this :

    $formatted_tokens['recipient.avatar'] = bp_core_fetch_avatar(
        'object'  => 'user',
        'item_id' => $formatted_tokens[''],
        'html'    => false,

    This is for the friendship request email. But you should be able to do it for any email type with this example.

    Hi @bigealien

    A possible reason could be that you deactivated the WordPress discussion setting about the avatar display. I advise you to check it within your WordPress Dashboard (see:

    There’s nothing to do. BuddyPress supports PHP from 5.6 to 7.3. If you have an issue, I advise you to open a specific support topic explaining in detail your issue.

    & @rolandbianco

    Both template pack should be ok. There might be a trouble elsewhere. Please check again using a “TwentySomething” theme and no other active plugins than BuddyPress. If you still have an issue, you can open a specific support topic explaining in detail your issue.

    Hi @chaddblanchard

    If you are using the BP Legacy template pack, you can follow @shanebp snippet available in response to this support topic: Display profile fields on members page

    It will also work on the BP Nouveau template pack, but it will be wrongly positioned. FYI, I’ve opened a ticket to fix this in next BuddyPress major version.

    You can also use a different strategy using the BP Template hierarchy. If you create a copy of the bp-templates/bp-nouveau/buddypress/members/members-loop.php into a buddypress/members/members-loop.php file of your theme (be careful to respect the relative path into your theme: create a buddypress folder, then a members one and finally put the members-loop.php copy inside this folder. From this copied file, you can modify the html layout to include specific code to display the profile field(s) of your choice.

    Here’s an example: The specific code to add has a yellow background.

    Hi @galato

    Thanks for your feedback. I advise you to submit a new support topic with the issue(s) you’re having with BuddyPress.

    FYI, we believe BuddyPress is PHP compatible from 5.6 to 7.3 versions. To make sure it’s the case we are using the Travis CI tool to run more than 1500 unit tests on the latest BuddyPress version under each WordPress version and each PHP version we support.


    The best is to ask for support in english into the BuddyPress official support forums.

    French :
    Le mieux est de demander de l’aide en anglais dans le forum de support officiel de BuddyPress.

    @pierreraynaud explained above that he doesn’t understand why the BuddyPress pages are not loaded but instead he gets 404. So he’s asking for help.

    I advise you to go to the permalink settings of your dashboard to select something else than the default structure eg:Month and name or Post name. I believe the index.php part of your URL might be problematic.
    Je vous conseille de revoir les réglages de vos permaliens en choisissant une option différente de celle qui est proposée par défaut ex! Mois et nom de page ou nom de page. Je pense que la partie index.php de vos URL est problématique.

    Mathieu Viet


    Yes, the easiest way is to activate the BP Legacy Template Pack from the BuddyPress Options screen into your WordPress Dashboard.

    Using the WordPress control for generating passwords is a BP Nouveau only feature. The benefits of it is to have the same control than WordPress (eg: when your member are resetting their passwords from the site.url/wp-login.php page).

    > Buddypress: version 5.0 was added to the theme as a plugin

    What does it mean?

    BuddyPress is not installed from the Plugins Management screen?

    Please make sure to follow all suggested checks into this topic, in particular testing with only BuddyPress activated and a Twenty* WordPress bundled theme.
