    @r-a-y

    Can you ensure that line 207 in bp-blogs/bp-blogs-functions.php matches the following?
    https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/2.9.1/src/bp-blogs/bp-blogs-functions.php#L207

    If it doesn’t, can you let me know what line 207 is on your version of BuddyPress?

    Did you follow my instructions by visiting your homepage after applying the snippet?

    Does this notice only show up in the admin dashboard?

    @r-a-y

    Can you try adding the following code snippet to your theme’s functions.php?

    add_action( 'wp', function() {
    	bp_delete_option( '_bp_record_blogs_offset' );
    } );

    Visit your homepage once. Then remove the snippet and see if you keep getting the notices.

    List all your plugins.

    I don’t think this is a problem with BuddyPress.

    Does this happen when you disable BuddyPress and attempt to login with an incorrect password?

    There is no BuddyPress “business”.

    BuddyPress is what you make of it. Same as WordPress. WordPress provides you with a default theme and basic options, same with BuddyPress.

    You haven’t mentioned what your feed is. Is it the main site’s RSS feed (example.com/feed)? A category feed?

    You should disable all BuddyPress plugins that might be interacting with blog posts.

    Have you tried just removing the parenthesis in the <span> string?

    You’ll probably want to look at the bp_legacy_theme_ajax_messages_autocomplete_results() function and roll your own version.

    Something like:

    // Remove the default AJAX autocomplete hook.
    remove_action( 'wp_ajax_messages_autocomplete_results', 'bp_legacy_theme_ajax_messages_autocomplete_results' );
    
    // Add our own.
    add_action( 'wp_ajax_messages_autocomplete_results', 'my_messages_autocomplete_results' );
    
    function my_messages_autocomplete_results() {
    	// YOUR CUSTOM AJAX OUTPUT HERE
    }

    Since you provided very little information, I can only interpret your post from what you have written.

    What is the “RSS feed to the newsletter”? Is this just a RSS feed to the main WordPress blog post RSS feed?

    I have both BuddyPress and bbPress installed and these plugins do not affect the main blog post RSS feed (example.com/feed/).

    BuddyPress does not modify the WordPress blog post RSS feed.

    I tested this locally and cannot reproduce the problem. You must have another plugin that is modifying blog post excerpts.

    You need to translate BuddyPress into French as well.

    View this codex page for more info on how to manually download and apply the French translation:

    BuddyPress doesn’t use shortcodes.

    Instead, it relies on connecting specific WordPress pages to BuddyPress components.

    Read this section for more info:

    If you’re just relying on the basics like username, password and email address, you should be able to look at various WordPress user import plugins:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/user+import/

    And then to modify one of them to fit your current database schema. If you’re able to export your data to CSV, then you could probably use one of the available plugins.

    However, for avatars, you would need to write a separate script to import them though.

    You mention forums specifically.

    If that is the case, you should use bbPress conditional functions.

    See this page for more details:

    bbPress Conditional Tags

    If you have more questions, post on the bbPress forums as BuddyPress is not bbPress:

    – BuddyPress = community
    – bbPress = forums

    @r-a-y

    add_theme_support( 'buddypress' ) is for custom BuddyPress themes not relying on theme compatiblity.

    I would remove that line from your theme’s functions.php and then load a BuddyPress page to see if the default BP styles show up as expected.

    Your developer would need to write an import script to parse your old database tables to match the BuddyPress DB schema.

    No way around it, unless you manually create each user and fill in each user’s data one-at-a-time. This would be painful if your existing site is quite large.

    You shouldn’t rely on PHP conditionals for CSS targeting.

    Use your browser’s developer console and check the various body CSS classes and then target the ones you want to use in your CSS stylesheet.

    Why not use something like?

    body.forums .YOUR-SELECTOR {color:red !important;}

    If you must use PHP conditionals, use the ones that BuddyPress provides:
    https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/2.9.1/src/bp-core/bp-core-template.php#L2034

    View the list of functions in that file for all the ones you can use.

    Do you see any debug error messages when you enable WP_DEBUG?
    https://codex.wordpress.org/Debugging_in_WordPress

    In wp-config.php, set WP_DEBUG to true, WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY to false to prevent error messages showing on your site, and WP_DEBUG_LOG to true so error messages are logged to wp-content/debug.log.

    Next, when the activities disappear, check the log and see what it says.

    Also, always strip down your install to see if there is a problem with plugins or your theme. For instance, your caching and DB plugins could affect this. Try disabling some plugins to see if the problem persists.

    A username, email address and password is required.

    If you activate the Extended Profiles component, then the first field “Name” is also required. A “Surname” field will need to be created by yourself, but once you do, you can set it as required if you want.

    If you want to do comparisons, Twitter does not ask for a last name either.

    What version of BuddyPress are you using?

    Can you upload the avatar that you wanted to use somewhere so we can test?


    r-a-y

    @r-a-y

    bbPress handles its integration into BuddyPress, not the other way around.

    You should look into what it would take in bbPress to alter the slugs for BuddyPress groups. I don’t believe this is possible at the moment from what I remember though.

    You might want to check out the bbPress forums as well:
    https://bbpress.org/forums/

    You’ll want to see a very similar thread to yours:

    I don’t believe we bundle a .pot file anymore. Will need to check what our policy is regarding this.

    However, you can just grab the Canadian translation and make your modifications and then rename to en_US.

    You can check the “Users > Pending Accounts” page in the WordPress admin dashboard. Then, you should be able to just delete them from there.

    It might be worthwhile for BuddyPress to have a built-in script that removes pending accounts that are older than a month or so.

    Also, just to get some clarity, would inactive users be causing BuddyPress to slow down all functions on my website, such as loading a member profile, or the activity page?

    Not really.

    If you indeed do have a popular website with many users that are concurrently logged in and performing operations, then this will slow down your site. You will need to utilize object caching plugins and the like (I believe WPEngine already has something built in for this). You might also need to consider upgrading your WPEngine plan.

    We’re also thinking of doing some performance enhancements in the next version of BuddyPress that will decrease the amount of code that needs to run on non-BuddyPress pages.
