    Yep! Same problem here. My timestamps seem to have gone randomly global. Also some emails not appearing in ‘Sent’ Folder…not all of them, just some.

    Thanks for posting to the Trac. I’ve already posted about the Group and Member Widget Avatar and links issues here – https://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/2407

    Good luck :-)

    Cheers

    Just to follow-up on the above…I have now installed BP 1.2.4.1.

    The above issues remain.

    Cheers

    @drifter0658,

    I don’t know if this will help, but it was something I forgot about and it fixed most of my issues which were similar:

    “sounds like you enabled BP from the upgrade screen. Disable BuddyPress, then go back to the plugins page and re-enable it sitewide (over on the right it says ‘Activate Site Wide’). That should fix many of your issues, but not the blog lists one. Working on a fix for that now.” from shawnkhall on this thread.

    Cheers

    Hi Guys,

    That’s good news re: 1.2.4.1. I haven’t installed it yet as I managed to fix my major issues beforehand thanks to the helpful folks on this thread.

    There are some not quite major issues left however (re: widgets – see below). Does 1.2.4.1 include fixes for the widgets too? If not I’ll wait for now.

    Widget Problems:

    User Blogs – Groups Widgets – No avatars. According to Firebug, default avatar blanks are being retrieved from Gravatar.com instead of actual group-avatars from the internal folder ‘group-avatars’. Also none of the links ‘Newest’, ‘Active’ or ‘Popular’ work. They all return a 404 Error. I re-saved the ‘Permalinks’ pages for the individual Blogs which often helps with other 404s but alas, not these ones. Individual Group Name Links work ok though.

    User Blogs – Members Widgets – Shows avatars ok but has the same issues with ‘Newest’, ‘Active and ‘Popular’ links returning a 404 Error.

    Primary Blog – Everything seems to work fine there. All Group Avatars appear where they should (including in the Groups Widget), and ‘Active’, ‘Popular’ and ‘Newest’ links work ok too.

    Cheers

    PS: Just to follow-up on the above…I have now installed BP 1.2.4.1. – (24 May 2010)

    The above issues remain.

    Hi Guys,

    Just an update on the Groups Widget thing:

    User Blogs – None of the links ‘Newest’, ‘Active’ or ‘Popular’ work either. Return a 404 Error. I re-saved the ‘Permalinks’ pages on the individual Blogs but it didn’t fix anything. Individual Group Name Links work ok.

    Primary Blog – Everything seems to work fine there. All Group Avatars appear where they should (including in the Groups Widget), and ‘Active’, ‘Popular’ and ‘Newest’ links work ok too.

    Cheers

    Ok! That’s a vast improvement! Doh! Sitewide Activation…what a thing to miss.

    @shawnkhall Yep! That fixed most issues. The only one I can see now (just having a quick look, not a thorough test), is that the Group Avatars are not showing up in the ‘Groups’ Widgets….but they are showing ok on the ‘Groups’ page on the Primary Blog. It would be nice to be able to fix that, but it’s hardly what I’d call a Major Issue. Thanks again for your help.

    @Travel-Junkie…yep! That worked fine too…thanks :-)

    Cheers

    Stephen G

    @shawnkhall and @Travel-Junkie

    Thanks guys…I’ll give it a whirl.

    Cheers

    Oh! And it may be worth noting that BuddyPress used to appear in the Site-Wide Plugins list in WPMU…it now appears in the normal plugins list…which would in theory (I have checked it and I’m not going to try), that Users would be able to Activate/Deactivate BP via their Blog Admin (unless of course I hid it).

    Geez!

    Stephen G

    Oh! This just keeps getting better and better. I’ve lost pretty much all BP Functionality on my Blogs…i.e. no Member Widgets, no Group Widgets etc…

    On checking the Dashboards for individual Blogs, there are no BP Widgets therein!!!

    Again! This has got to be pretty basic stuff to check during pre-release testing…hasn’t it?

    I’m going back to 1.2.3.

    Cheers

    Stephen G

    Oh! I forgot to mention:

    I’m using WPMU 2.9.2, on a Linux Server.

    I updated to BP 1.2.4 from 1.2.3.

    I deactivated all other BP Plugins and deactived BP Templates before Updating. Then when that stuff happened. I removed all BP Plugins and rebuilt the BP side of things one step at a time. End result was the same…no blogs, no BP Admin bar on Blogs.

    Cheers

    Stephen G again…

    Hi Folks,

    I had exactly the same issue…fortunately I’ve only got 13 blogs so I was able to fix it manually.

    For anyone that is interested, this is what I did. I’m no mySQL expert so this is very manual (I tried to upload the records using ‘import’ but as usual some setting was correct…couldn’t be bothered dickin’ with it so I went manual :-P)

    It seems that the BP 1.2.4 empties the following Db Table – ‘wp_bp_user_blogs’.

    Fortunately I did a backup before venturing with yet another notorious BP Update.

    In my Db Backup (which is pretty big), I just did a ‘Find next’ search for ‘user_blog’. The info. your looking for looks like this:

    “LOCK TABLES `wp_bp_user_blogs` WRITE;
    /*!40000 ALTER TABLE `wp_bp_user_blogs` DISABLE KEYS */;
    INSERT INTO `wp_bp_user_blogs` (`id`, `user_id`, `blog_id`) VALUES (1,1,1),(2,3,1),(21,1,14),(20,1,13),(19,6,12),(17,1,12),(22,1,15),(23,1,16),(28,1,18),(25,1,17),(26,10,16),(27,10,13),(29,1,19);
    /*!40000 ALTER TABLE `wp_bp_user_blogs` ENABLE KEYS */;
    UNLOCK TABLES;”

    If you open you Db in myPHP Admin, click on the ‘wp_bp_user-blogs’ table, and when it’s empty row appears, just go up the top and click ‘Insert’. This will present you with a list of the 3 rows in the table. Their ‘Field’ names are respectively ‘id’, ‘user_id’ and ‘blog_id’ as it says above.

    Just take each block of 3 numbers in from your backup info. (I’d advise not using my numbers above :-P), and pop them in, to the respective rows, 1 set at time. That is to say, place 1 each of the first set of 3 numbers on each row in its respective Field, then click ‘Go’. That will create a row in the Table. Then repeat the procedure for each set of 3 numbers.

    I hope that helps someone.

    Next MAJOR Problem is that I no longer have BP Admin Bars appearing at the top of my Blogs. If anyone has a fix I’m all ears.

    These are prettty major issues. This is my first BP Update…I’m now terrified of future ones.

    Anyway, now I’m off to spend more hours troubleshooting this other MAJOR PROBLEM.

    Cheers

    Stephen G
