    as far as using skype for your site, I think that is a short sighted choice – no privacy, no control, dependent upon third parties… I went down that road once, and not getting into that dependency again.

    I’m running a business website where face-2-face conversation is important. Skype works fine for me and about the privacy: you decide (and no one else) who you want to join your private or group conversation. There’s no other party involved when using Skype.

    If you want videochat with chatrooms, groupchats => Skype for Buddypress by uicoders.com

    If you only want a simple plain texting chatroom => try tinychat. Have tried that too but it’s buggy.

    No only with persons you are chatting with. You’ve never used Skype before? With Skype you can videochat and text to…. if you would like to stay anonymous (just switch off camera).

    Never used Skype before? :-)

    You can videochat and also text.

    I was looking for this plugin for years and finally got one and it works perfectly on my Buddypress site. A really must have for every social networking site!
    easy to setup: download, install and you’re all set. Few clicks, 30 seconds bingo!

    Almost everybody on this world has a Skype account and I was looking for a long time for a plugin that seamlessly integrates with Buddypress.

    Finally found Skype for Buddypress by uicoders.com. It works like a charm. Setup in 2 minutes and you’re ready to rock!

    This is the one that you really need to reach more people and to increase engagement on your Buddypress site. You don’t need special server setups like RedHat, etc, etc. Just install and rock! This plugin saved my buddypress platform … kudoooooooooooooosssssssssssss for the guys at uicoders.com!

    I got the same problem after upgrading WP and BP to the latest version: the “Create a Group”- button is missing.

    I copied the link from WP Admin Bar > Groups > “Create A Group” and copy pasted it in a menu. Prefer the button!

    How do we create a “Create a Group” button?

    Hello Shanebp,

    This is what I mean:

    In Buddypress dashboard > Users > Profile Fields > Add New Field Group… it’s not creating a new group.

    Is there incompatibilty between WP 4.1 and Buddypress cause it’s duplicating my profile fields. For example: it’s now showing my name field twice.. and the order of the groups are changing every time…Weird

    Just found this tutorial:

    How to Merge / Integrate Multiple WordPress Sites into one MultiSite:

    Sounds very easy! Let’s give it a try.

    Hi Henry,

    I was talking about merging of files, because both websites have different databases. Merging of databases would be too risky and complicated I guess.

    By merging of websites users only have to login once.

    ThX!

    Hi Modemlooper,

    You’re right; it’s theme related.
    But it didn’t happened before under the former BP version.
    I’m using the free BP theme Frisco for Buddypress.
    And every time when I hit the notification button it throws a double navigation bar.

    How do I fix this?

    Thanks!

    Is there really nobody who can help me? :-(

    I just made a fresh install with the latest version of WP and Buddypress and the above mentioned problems didn’t occur anymore. So it might be that upgrading Buddypress triggered these problems.

    My advice to others: if you’re running a stable Buddypress version do not upgrade!!!
    Unless BP find some kind of “patch” to prevent the issues.

    The same problem occurs with BP User Profile Map.

    Is there someone here who can tell me how to fix this?

    @Mercime:

    Thank you for your advice!

    I’ve followed your instructions but somehow it’s throwing a massive amount of weird and very confusing code errors.

    I had no other choice than to start from scratch: I’ve reinstalled WP and upgraded it to WPMU. Next step was re-installing Buddypress and my custom theme. Copied some customized files from the old blog to the new one. It’s still time-consuming.

    Buddypress should have the multi-user and blog options pre-installed. :-()

    Thanks,

    Hello modemlooper,

    I’ve just solved the problem. It’s working but don’t ask how. :-)

    Have you already found the solution to your BP Stalker plugin (see further on wordpress.org)?

    Hello Imath,

    Got the same problem as ramnjan. The plugin is not working on either BP 1.5.6, BP 1.5.7 and several kind of browsers. I’ve tested it on Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, etc.
    Is this a BP 1.5.6. / 1.5.7 related problem as it works well on BP 1.6?

    Problem resolved; plugin related problem. De-activated the plugin first, then upgraded Buddypress and finally re-activated the plugin. No more fatal errors.

    Hello Roger,

    I’ve used your code bp_get_member_profile_data, but it failed and found out that his code is the solution:
    `

    <a href="”>Url:

    `

    I know what you’re thinking: what a weird code …. but anyway it’s working. :-)

    I’ve made a summary for others and as a reminder:

    This is the code you must add around line 30 in wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/members/single/member-header.php:
    `

    Location:
    Hobbies:

    <a href="”>Url:

    `

    And how do I make the url clickable?

    Hello guys,

    It works!!!
    I’ve replaced in /single/members-header.php the code bp_profile_field_data() by bp_member_profile_data() and it works great!

    Thank you guys!!

    Hello guys,

    Thank you for your help; I really appreciate that.

    In bp-members-template.php and bp_member_profile_data I’ve found this code at line 596-632:

    `function bp_member_profile_data( $args = ” ) {
    echo bp_get_member_profile_data( $args );
    }
    function bp_get_member_profile_data( $args = ” ) {
    global $bp, $members_template;

    if ( !bp_is_active( ‘xprofile’ ) )
    return false;

    // Declare local variables
    $data = false;
    $user_id = 0;

    // Guess at default $user_id
    if ( !empty( $members_template->member->id ) )
    $user_id = $members_template->member->id;
    elseif ( !empty( $bp->displayed_user->id ) )
    $user_id = $bp->displayed_user->id;

    $defaults = array(
    ‘field’ => false, // Field name
    ‘user_id’ => $user_id
    );

    $r = wp_parse_args( $args, $defaults );
    extract( $r, EXTR_SKIP );

    // Populate the user if it hasn’t been already.
    if ( empty( $members_template->member->profile_data ) && method_exists( ‘BP_XProfile_ProfileData’, ‘get_all_for_user’ ) )
    $members_template->member->profile_data = BP_XProfile_ProfileData::get_all_for_user( $user_id );

    // Get the field data if there is data to get
    if ( !empty( $members_template->member->profile_data ) )
    $data = xprofile_format_profile_field( $members_template->member->profile_data[$field], $members_template->member->profile_data[$field] );

    return apply_filters( ‘bp_get_member_profile_data’, $data );
    }`

    Is this the code you’re talking about and what should be modified?

    Hello guys,

    I’ve found and added this code in member-header.php and it’s almost working:
    `

    Location: </span
    Hobbies:

    `

    The location is displayed correctly, but hobbies are displayed as”Hobbies: array”.
    I’ve checked profile field Hobbies; Field type= Multi select Box. This might be the problem if you use this option.

    1. How do I display the selected boxes?
    2. Do I have to copy the above mentioned code to the Frisco theme? If so where?

    Hello guys,

    Yes I’m using the Frisco theme for Buddypress and I’m completely at lost :-)
    and I was not aware that the Frisco theme was a child-theme.

    I’m now figuring out how to add my created profile fields “Location” and “Hobbies” in the member’s header.
