You’ve almost got it! Yes, create a new page for registration and then go back to the BuddyPress page settings and assign the register page.
You can adjust colors in your active theme’s style.css file. You will need to know some CSS probably. However, it is best to use a child theme so that when you update your theme, the style changes will not get overwritten. Not sure if you already have one in place, but here’s some more info about that: https://codex.buddypress.org/themes/building-a-buddypress-child-theme/
Also, you’ll want to assign a page for your registration page- see this codex article for more details: https://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/register-and-activation-pages/
Do you have pretty permalinks set? Check out this codex article for more info: https://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/troubleshooting/navigation-links-return-404-errors/
Do you have registration open in your WordPress settings? Go to Admin >> Settings >> General and check “Anyone can register” to see if that fixes it.
The next thing I’d try is renaming the plugins folder so that it deactivates all your plugins (in case you are experiencing a conflict).
If you mean using the native BuddyPress ‘favorites’ functionality, that would be a really cool feature for Achievements
We’ve put together a nice list of responsive BuddyPress themes here http://wpmu.org/10-responsive-buddypress-themes/
Yes, I just tested with this but it doesn’t make a difference for showing a users’ list of favorites. I’ve never encountered this before.
I haven’t changed anything in the BP core. I just deleted those files and uploaded a fresh copy of BP 1.5.1. again – still no change. Maybe something in the database? What might I look for in the activity or activity meta tables that would clue me in? Would having a custom table prefix affect it at all?
Same issue with WP 3.2.1, BP 1.5.1, and Multisite. cannot locate Welcome Pack settings within the settings menu.
Well… this continued to be a problem on one of my sites, so I just jumped into the db and found him by user_id in the wp_usermeta table and then located the achievements points table and manually changed his points to something reasonable, like 75. Funny thing is that although his numbers were in the trillions on the front-end, I found that the table said he had -11. Not sure how all that works, but I’m guessing there’s something that goes wonky with negative point awards. I’m just posting here in case someone else has this issue and has to manually get in there and fix it. Hope this helps!
Hmm… would a -15 do it? Here’s the user where it happened: http://sportsrantz.com/members/damenacelo37/achievements/ and he only has 6 achievements. So it must be the negative one that is causing it to go wonky? What do you think the best way to reset his points would be – directly through the database? Thanks for your help, Paul!
I’m having a similar strange bug on a site that I’m helping with – one user has gotten like a trillion points somehow and I’m not sure what happened. I’m thinking about getting into the database to change the user’s points because it looks quite ridiculous.
I recently did a quick writeup comparing BuddyPress and Drupal Commons – hope some people find this helpful when selecting between the two: http://wpmu.org/open-source-social-networking-matchup-buddypress-vs-drupal-commons/
You can change the default tab open by editing your wp-config.php file. Add this:
`define( ‘BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT’, ‘forum’ );`
This info is from the documentation: https://codex.buddypress.org/extending-buddypress/changing-internal-configuration-settings/
@johnjamesjacoby Do you know anything about this? Are the setting such that you need to turn all the regular components off if you want to use the legacy components? Or is the plugin broken? The site I’m working on redirects to homepage for wall posts, and there seem to be some issues with friending as well.
Hey @mwspr – I don’t have a plugin for that in the repository. I think maybe I posted one a long time ago in a blog post but I’m not actively maintaining it. I don’t know what fix you’re talking about but feel free to add it yourself and put it in the repo if you think other people might want it. I probably won’t be working on that one.
Hello @modemlooper ! Thanks for your plugin! I fixed it so that it tweets out the actual activity permalink url You can check out the fixed version here: http://wpmu.org/new-buddypress-tweet-button-plugin-download-here/ If you want to update yours at the reop, I’ll change the download link to point to your plugin at the repo. I was experimenting with this yesterday, so was happy to see you made it into a plugin!
Sorry to bump this. I think it got lost in the shuffle. Anyone every had this error with friend requests?
@jeremyltn Super! I know a lot of people will be excited about this. Thanks!
Thanks It’s there: https://buddypress.org/community/groups/buddypress-sliding-login-panel/
