Apparently I am not as good as I thought. I knew I should have said more, but couldn’t think what it was. Here it is. The site is running WordPress 3.4.1. , BP 1.6. We looked harder and found that when he uses the Chrome browser is when the challenge occurs. Internet Explorer and Firefox work fine. There is less whining…
Well, I went back and read the obtuse post again. If I understood it correctly, when you are using a child theme, which I am, instead of line 3 above I should use line 3 below.
I changed line 3 above to:
I switched it out of all 15 files and it seems to not work either.
Just shoot me. Is this a backtick ` ? I thought it was dust on my keyboard – lol…
Oh my – did you get any of the code? How could I screw that up?
Hey! We found the pages with the Member Directory, Groups and Forums. I think we may have it! I will let you know if we have further challenges… Yea!
I dissected what you said. I looked at and gingerly poked at the files. I got someone who knows more and we moved some stuff and tried different things. We narrowed it down to the fact that the install was not going to completion – wp-config and/or bb-config were not communicating with the rest of the site to finish the process. So I contacted my hosting gods and they have made the error messages disappear. I am not sure it is truly fixed – we cannot figure out how to create a forum or group and see no admin resources to set stuff up. How do I know if the installation is complete?
Sorry to have fallen off the earth for a couple of days. I had a talk with my beloved hosting guy. I copied him Hugo’s comments and asked him if this could be the cause of other challenges we have been having with the site (not related to BuddyPress). He said Hugo was spot on. (Its ok Hugo, you can dance now…)
If the horse is dead, dismount. I took it to the boss. I am researching new themes. Thank you for the guidance to make our website the best it can be. And thank you Mercime for not giving up until all rock were turned.
Well- I built the files, and uploaded them. I added the stuff to the CSS inserts. but I still see only toolbar. I have not addressed the tweaking yet, but shouldn’t I be seeing something to tweak?
Hee Hee! So Hugo how do you really feel? Sorry to stomp on a nerve! Thanks for getting back so fast.
I’ll give Mercime’s instructions a try and put looking at themes on my to-do list.
Thank you for going the extra mile to feel my pain. Me and etienne-r greatly appreciate it. The floundering discussions in the Atahualpa forums really show that people want to be able to make the two work together, but just can’t quite get there.
Yesterday I was cruising the forum looking for the secret knowledge and I found a post about Buddypresss ‘remembering’ settings from previous installs. Mine does this. Do I need to go through that? will it matter? and should it be done before this new and exciting list?
I edited the two files (header.php ->header-buddypress.php and sidebar-buddypress.php) and put them in the atahualpa directory where header.php lives. It still looks the same.
I installed BuddyPress and changed the theme to the bp-default. How do I know if everything is working? I get the toolbar up top, but the links go to 404 Not Found. Except for Groups – that goes to a page with Group Directory and link to Create a Group that works. If I go to Profile>>Public it brings up my page indieconnect.com/publicity.
When I click on Forums I get multiple errors.
[Errors acknowledged and deleted – too long in our forum page]
So is this working for something that has not gone through the BP Compatibility stuff?
Sad, sad, sad. I can’t get to see anything anymore. All I get is the toolbar with the links up top, but they do not work. I do not seem to get the 500 Internal Server Error anymore, but I get the 404 Not Found.
I have repeatedly cleaned everything up and out (through the installer and looking at the directories) and tried again. I fear I have ruts now in my plugin installer.
So if I start from the beginning, I’m gonna install BuddyPress and the BP Template Pack and activate them. Does it matter what order I activate them? Also, even though I have cleaned stuff up, when I install anew, I see remnants of previous work – the Pages are already listed in the BuddyPress Pages tab.
I am gonna clean it all up again and wait nicely for your direction.
I fear I have buggered it up good. I get a 500 Internal Server Error or 404 Not Found when trying to get Buddy Press pages.
I have tried to deactivate and delete buddypress and the template pack and then re-install, but it is the same.
Sorry- that must drive you guys crazy…
My site is indieconnect.com. It is running WP 3.3.1, Atahualpa Theme 3.7.3, and Buddy Press 1.5.5. I just got BuddyPress installed and went through the BP Template pack. (I modified the files listed in Step 3 by swapping out the “get header” code – this was recommended by the Theme’s support forum.) At this point, the left sidebar was on the left where it should be but it also showed up below the middle column on buddypress pages. I found a post here that suggested putting up a blank page (sidebar-buddypress.php) in the theme directory and that fixed the repeating sidebar. The footer on buddypress pages is showing up in the left column. The right column is missing.
There is code hanging out on the page. It is from something else. I hope this gives you the info you need to help.
So the guys who run the server had a hiccup and all of a sudden it is more better. I can see that stuff has been installed. I still need to configure, but it looks like I am past this bump. Thank you!
I deleted BP Template Pack plugin. I then activated BuddyPress. I re-installed the BP Template Pack plugin. When I tried to activate it I got this error:
“The plugin does not have a valid header.”
In order to repeat the process (so I could report the results accurately) I had to deactivate BuddyPress. Only then could I see BP Template Pack plugin to delete.
