When you click inside the textarea box, the textarea should expand and show the submit button.
Does that work?
If not, it might be related to the Sahira theme. Since Sahira is a premium theme, we do not have access to it. What happens when you switch to one of the WordPress Twenty themes?
Do you have the BuddyPress Activity Privacy plugin activated? If so, read this:
Thanks for the report.
Can you do three things?

2) Open up
/bp-core/bp-core-attachments.phpand look for the following lines:
// Resize the image so that it fit with the cover image dimensions $cover_image = $cover_image_class->fit( $args['file'], $dimensions );
Right after that line, add:
_doing_it_wrong( 'bp_attachments_cover_image_generate_file', print_r( $cover_image, true ), '2.4.0' );
3) Go to the “Change Cover Photo” page and try reuploading a photo.
Next, go to

Going to ping @imath as well.

Since the translation is not 100% complete, you might see some English strings.
Let me know if that works for you.
This bug will be fixed in BP v2.4.1.
If you want to temporarily fix this issue manually, see:
I think the German translation is not fully 100% translated, which is preventing WordPress from fetching the latest German translation for BuddyPress.
If you are able to help translate the remaining strings, please visit:
Also, read the following guide to find out how to contribute towards the translation:
@garprogram – This fatal error is due to some changes we made in BP v2.4.0 to give users proper feedback messages when a private message fails to send.
It looks like we might have to add some additional hooks so plugin devs can set the error message.
In the meantime, here are two things I would recommend:
1. Use the
'bp_messages_recipients'filter instead of using the
2. As Henry mentioned, if you have to unset one recipient, you should unset all of the recipients to avoid the message from sending. The default error message will probably not suit your needs, so you might have to filter the error message with the
'gettext'filter temporarily until we introduce better error handling for plugin developers.
You need to turn on Site Tracking.
Go to the WP admin dashboard and navigate to “Settings > BuddyPress > Components”.
Next, activate the “Site Tracking” component and test the filter. I believe the filters only take effect when posts are saved/edited, so you might not see any posts or comments recorded in the activity stream.
You can ignore this message if you’re using BuddyPress on a production site.
To turn off debugging notices on production, set

This is a notice caused by a plugin that is initializing user info too early. If you want to find out which plugin is causing this, deactivate all your plugins and only activate BuddyPress. Next, activate your plugins one-by-one until you find the culprit.
Try the recommendations listed under “BuddyPress isn’t sending out emails” of this page:
Since you’re dequeueing the companion stylesheet, add a dummy one in your child theme –
wp-content/themes/YOUR-THEME/css/twentyfourteen.cssand remove your function above.
This should bring up the cover image.
but bp_is_component_front_page( ‘activity’ ) or the one I just suggested bp_is_activity_front_page() doesn’t seem to work correctly when using the activity parse args filter.
bp_is_component_front_page( 'activity' )is supposed to act as a replacement for front page checks, not for activity component checks.
If you’re checking for the activity directory page in
bp_parse_args(), then try using
You should probably provide a screenshot so others will know what you are talking about.
It’s most likely a theme issue that you’ll have to address with some custom CSS.
Yes, you just manually edit the files.
If you need help with this, I can provide the patched files somewhere where you can just copy and paste.
I’ve got a fix ready:
Apply the lines in that patch to your BuddyPress install.
To test this, you’ll need to set
Let me know if this fixes the problem.
Thanks for getting back to me.
I can confirm that the pagination handling is a bug. Looking into it and will post a reply once I’ve established a fix.
It looks like you’re using W3 Total Cache.
Make sure to whitelist the ‘register’ and ‘activate’ pages. Then, clear your cache in W3TC.
My suggestion of changing
Give it a shot. Remember to change this to
You should use
bp_is_component_front_page( 'activity' )instead.

What are your URLs linking to? In your video you mentioned something like
In BuddyPress 2.4.0, you have to change the
members_s. In 2.4.1, this will change to
members_searchdue to a typo.
How are you setting up the members loop to filter students by school?
We do not store avatar data in the database.
We do a look up at the files level instead.
If you want to show an avatar based on a custom avatar stored in the database, you’ll need to use the
'bp_core_fetch_avatar'filter to override how BuddyPress shows avatars:
If you just want to display a user avatar, use the
echo bp_core_fetch_avatar( array( 'item_id' => USER_ID_TO_GRAB_AVATAR_FOR ) );
The registration page only shows for logged-out users. If you are testing the registration page, make sure you are logged out.
Are you running the Woffice theme with their Birthday extension?
