  • I’m bit amazed by this

    enabled direct registration of new members and disabled email confirmation

    As far as I know, a user registering from the front-end (managed by BuddyPress) is first receiving an email containing a secret key he needs to paste into the BuddyPress activate page to validate their account. But maybe you are using a plugin or some custom code to disable this..

    Otherwise, you can achieve what you describe adding the following code snippets to a bp-custom.php file.

     * Adds activities generated when a user activates their account when a user
     * is created using the wp-admin/user-new screen Add new action.
    function automatically_generate_an_activation_activity( $user_id = 0 ) {
    	// Adds a "became a registered user" activity.
    	bp_core_new_user_activity( $user_id );
    	// Fake a user log in.
    	bp_update_user_last_activity( $user_id );
    add_action( 'edit_user_created_user', 'automatically_generate_an_activation_activity' );


    It’s possible by default in WordPress, just go to yoursite.url/wp-login.php

    Hi @b4ureye,

    Ok, can you reply to the following questions:
    – What is the name of your active theme?
    – If it’s a child-theme, what is the name of the parent theme ? You can find this information into the template: header of the style.css file of your child-theme.
    – Does this theme contains a members directory or a buddypress/members directory?
    – if so does this directory contains a register.php file?
    – if so can you share on the content of this file?

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Hi @leahkoerper,

    I’ve just checked the xProfile custom visibility feature, It works as expected for me.

    As you’re mentioning Elementor, have you tried deactivating this plugin to see if there was something messing with BuddyPress on their end?

    But out of curiosity what is the type of the field (see list below)?

    xProfile Field types

    Thanks for your reply @shanebp.

    As one of the BuddyPress lead developers, I confirm everyone in the development team is giving their time freely.

    There are probably improvements we can bring to documentation to help you find replies more easily. To achieve this we need contributions. You are welcome (like every user) to help us, oh and contributing to an open source project is also free (just in case…).

    Hi @tamarazambrana

    Could you share more information about your config, eg: Is there a plugin playing with xProfile fields, multisite or not, etc..?

    I guess what you call “primary cell” is the primary field of the primary Group (what we initialize as the Name field).

    When on the Signup Fields group, what is the JavaScript error your browser’s console displays?

    Thanks in advance for your inputs. This shouldn’t happen, sorry it did for you.

    Hi @b4ureye this notice means you are overriding the members/register.php template from your theme.

    You need to update your custom template so that the signup xProfile loop uses the bp_xprofile_signup_args() function.

    I guess your active Template Pack is BP Legacy, so I advise you to have a look to to figure out what to replace by what.

    @leahkoerper can you confirm it’s also happening when the active theme is Twenty Twenty-One ?

    Thanks a lot for your love @epgb101 We’ll double check the field visibility behaves the right way asap.

    Thanks a lot for your feedbacks. The development team will talk about it during our next dev-chat.

    Hi @firefliespilots and all,

    To help us understand what’s going wrong with the line 53 of buddypress/bp-core/classes/class-bp-invitation-manager.php, we need your help.

    1. Deactivate all plugins except BuddyPress: is the error still there?
    2. If yes activate a Twenty theme: is the error still there ?
    3. Remove bp-custom.php file or mu-plugins or dropins: is the error still there?

    If you have a no after 1. Reactivate plugins 1 by 1 and check the error’s appearance. It should help us find which plugin we need to check on our side.
    After 2: it’s a theme issue, etc..

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, we also received a « blank page » alert from Kevin in a comment to the announcement post. I’m pasting the content here as it’s a better place:

    « I am getting this error.

    Notice: Undefined property: BP_Members_Component::$table_name_invitations in /home/ on line 53

    WordPress database error: [Table ‘xvvhrjhrac.i’ doesn’t exist]
    SELECT DISTINCT FROM i WHERE class IN (‘bp_members_invitation_manager’) AND type = ‘invite’ AND invite_sent = 1 AND accepted = 0

    Also it seems to not work with Youzify plugin active. The page is just blank »

    Hi @comminski

    Thanks a lot for your feedback 😍. I’ll patch this asap into BuddyPress 8.0.0 to avoid this fatal error.

    Thanks for your feedback, I’ll look at it 👍

    1. if not already created: add a bp-custom.php file.
    2. into this bp-custom.php file add the following line:

    add_filter( 'bp_activity_maybe_load_mentions_scripts', '__return_false' );

    Hi @roman1wp

    1. Thanks for your feedback about the BP Beta Tester plugin. I was able to fix it and I’ll soon deploy this release on the Plugins directory.
    2. About BuddyX, I advise you to report the issue on the Theme’s support forum.

    Thanks for your opinion. I replied to your comment on the blog post.

    Hi, that’s because some words are restricted and can’t be used to create a group. If you simply use « administrateur » it should work.

    We can’t see the full page in your gif but there’s a good chance there’s an error message somewhere above.

    I’ll check it tomorrow a soon as I’m back on a keyboard 😉. I saw your message on Trac and on my personal site 👌 Currently afk.

    Hi @olamyklebost,

    I’m sorry to read what happened to your site. I believe something went wrong during the upgrade process with the Plugins directory. I advise you to remove completely the BuddyPress plugin directory to reinstall a fresh download of the 7.3.0 package.

    All previous BuddyPress versions can be downloaded from the advanced area of our plugin’s page on

    You’ll find a dropdown control where you can choose the needed previous version. Before reverting I strongly encourage you to try again to download 7.3.0 from there and reinstall it.

    The error message says a file is missing, but if you look into the 7.3.0 tag you’ll see the file the error is mentioning bp-core-wp-abstraction.php is not missing into the tag:

    I hope this will help you fix the issue.

    Hi @dimensionmedia

    brought your topic to our attention during today’s dev-chat. I believe both needs can be satisfied if we migrate our custom URI to WP’s Rewrite API.

    If you look at this comment/patch I had a proof of concept working (the patch probably needs a huge refresh). Our main concern is the potential damage that BuddyPress Plugins/Themes could face.

    One possible way to finally progress about it is to use the patch to build a plugin so that it’s easy to deactivate if there’s an issue, and it’s also faster to iterate from the plugin to solve one by one the compatibility issues as they arrive.

    I’ll look into it once 8.0.0 is released 👋

    Hi I don’t see any reason for this. But 7.2 is not the latest release. We’ve published 7.2.1:

    BuddyPress 7.2.1 Security Release

    Hi @mike80222

    By default just like the WordPress REST API, the BuddyPress one is active by default and is used into the UI to manage group members from the Group’s Administration & Management screens. If you want to disable the BP REST API, you need to use this filter into a bp-custom.php file for example:

    add_filter( 'bp_rest_api_is_available', '__return_false' );

    Thanks a lot! It’s fixed 🙂

    Hi @djsteveb,

    I have doubt 7.2.0 caused this issue. As the file you’re referring to was lastly modified 11 months ago.

    The function bp_nouveau_sanitize_nav_order() is used to sanitize navigation slugs. I’d advise you to launch the customizer, activate the BuddyPress Nouveau > Member navigation Panel and edit the navigation order using the drag/drop control and then save your edits to see if it’s fixing the issue. See the screenshot below:

    Customize Member navigation screenshot
