  • 1 stars2 stars3 stars4 stars5 starsTrying it out on BuddyPress 1.2.9. So far it works well. Switched from S2Member because the latest version no longer auto re-directs logged out users, like it used to. So I’ll stick with this until I figure out what’s up.

  • Alright solved again. Turns out there was a mistake in my code. Here’s the breakdown:

    Old Code:

    `function cg_postcatagory( $post_id = false )
    {
    if ( empty( $post_id ) || empty( $_POST[‘post_metacat’] ) )
    […]

  • Well, it worked for a good while, and just when I was good and ready to launch, things went haywire again. I appreciate all who have helped me find my bearings thus far. Hopefully this journey will have a happy ending (without any plot twists :P) Hello all, I’ll try to break down what I’m […]

    @r-a-y Hey bro, don’t worry about it. I apologize for not replying sooner either. Things got really hectic on this end. School work and client work is no fun, especially when you’re working with unfamiliar grounds (thank God for BuddyPress’s approachable community)

    Thanks again for all of your help. I got some BuddyPress brainteasers that I’ll be…[Read more]

    No dice, the wordpress.org/support registration form states that my email already exists.

      Sorry for the late reply, Menelik.

      I’ve asked John to see if he can change your email address for your current account. I’ll report back when I hear something.

      Also, if you’re using Google Apps for your email, you could probably use an email address like me+bp@menelikseth.com and that would technically count as another email address, but would…[Read more]

    Alrighty, I just changed my email to my alternate email address. I’ll go on ahead and attempt to create a new account using the primary one.

  • Menelik Seth posted a new activity comment 5 years ago

    Thanks for the efforts, it’s no biggie. Is it at least possible to recover the email I’m using with this one? me@menelikseth.com or will it be tied up with this account?

    It would be a bummer if my fav email account was rendered useless with the BuddyPress/WordPress commmunity.

    • r-a-y replied 5 years ago

      I believe you can change your email address on wordpress.org/support.

      Login there and click on “View your profile” and then click on “Edit”. If you are not able to get to your profile because of the space, let me know and I’ll get John to change your email address.

    @r-a-y Yea , my login name is Menelik Seth, but I’d very much like it changed to menelikseth (one word, and all small letters). Thanks a bunch!

    • r-a-y replied 5 years ago

      According to John, you’ll have to create a new account until the username compatibility issue has been taken care of.

      Sorry about that!

  • I’m still new to BuddyPress, so this may not be the best approach, but here’s what I’ve done: 1. Copy bp-default > groups > index.php into your own child-theme (make sure you keep the same directory structure) 2. Open the newly copied groups > index.php that is located in your child-theme 3. Find: 4. […]

    @r-a-y Hey r-a-y,

    Firstly, thanks for the insights into the bbpress meta functions. That really clarified things for me. I’m currently going to use it to create some custom filters for the forum loop.

    I have a small problem with the buddypress.org forums. I cannot access my profile page, or any of its functions: can’t see my notifications,…[Read more]

  • I found something close with the default theme’s activity page. Still searching for the tags, though. I totally accidentally the buddypress theme

  • Late last night, I stumbled across these two awesome features while poking around the default buddypress template. Today, they seem to have disappeared; I don’t know whether they existed or if I was just imagining things: 1. The ability to filter forum topics by their tags (AJAX) 2. An ajax New Topic Form that slid […]

  • @r-a-y Interesting to note, I’ve just tried the code, and it works. But for some reason, while it works flawlessly on my XAMPP box (Windows Vista), my MAMP box will not load any of the forums or forum posts… It just loads a blank page. I just hope it works on my live server… EDIT: Works […]

    Thanks Paul!

  • Menelik Seth started the forum topic Arabic Group URLs in the group Creating & Extending: 5 years ago

    Hello again, I’m trying to get BuddyPress to work with Arabic URLs. Although it works fine with single-word URLS, if a user tries to create a group with an Arabic name that contains spaces in it, then it’s a hit and miss: Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t (submitting a group creation throws a “Bad […]

  • Thanks for the tip! I’m going to have to figure out how to validate the form input to ensure that it’s an array (and that the check-boxes have been selected). That’s next on my to-do list after I’ve set up some custom loops to display posts based on the metadata I’ve created 😀 (will post […]

  • my tweaks, to get it accepting arrays. Sound code?
    function cg_newmeta( $id, $postcat) {

    global $catagory, $wpdb, $bbdb;

    do_action( 'bbpress_init' );

    foreach ($postcat as $value)
    {
    $wpdb->query( $wpdb->prepare( "INSERT INTO $bbdb->meta ( meta_id, object_type, object_id, meta_key, meta_value ) VALUES (%d, %s, %d, %s, %s )",…

  • r-a-y! Thanks for sharing the knowledge! It didn’t occur to me to look into bbPress’s functions. I’ll definitely look into it. I’m trying to figure out how to pass an array of meta, so that each post can individually have several user-selected meta associated with it. I have a feeling I’ll find my answers in […]
