What modifications in particular are you referring to?
We really wanted to release our child theme to the public, but I doubt Bootstrapmaster (ACME theme) would let us do that.
Hmmm, interesting. Could that still affect new groups made with group forums though? Because we’re experiencing this same issue with those as well.
- WordPress 3.5.1
- BuddyPress 1.6.4
- bbPress 2.2.4
After we had converted our legacy forum to bbPress 2, I created a new forum category called “Projects” and made all the remaining group forums parent to that category. By remaining, I mean that the other group forums had now been re-purposed as ordinary forums with no group attached. I did not re-link the remaining group forums with their respective groups until a few months (and probably a BuddyPress and bbPress update in between) after the initial forum conversion.
We have a simple hierarchy. 3 main categories (Troubleshooting, Development and Projects) act as parents for all underlying forums. The ‘Projects’ category holds all old and new group forums. We followed the BP Docs to do the conversion right.
Nice work. I’m very curious what your bbPress styling looks like, but I couldn’t find a link to a forum in any of your example sites.
That doesn’t help make a separate group though, it only explains how to extend it. We want to keep our groups as they are, while adding a new component, based on groups, but with its own slug and so forth.
@modemlooper it’s unfair to say that visitors shouldn’t use the very BuddyPress.org website as an example of BuddyPress’ quality. It’s reasonable to expect the core developers of the very software you’re using to lead by example with the site they’ve built to support their community.
Suggested for version 1.6 (eligible for 1.5.1 if someone contributes a patch):
Sorry I failed to specify. The new default theme for BuddyPress supports featured images, but I can’t get them working.
I tried that method, and I ran into something kind of strange:
Does this mean the problem is on our end? Maybe we did a half-successful update or something… Still don’t understand what could cause this kind of disparity.
Looking at your website @hajakif it looks like you figured this out. Would you mind sharing your findings? We’re trying to set up CometChat on jmonkeyengine.org and we seem to be having similar set-up issues.
Alright thanks. Sounds like I might want to wait for the 1.2.9b though
Did you cut off the upgrade for the time being? For a while I saw the pending 1.2.9 upgrade, but I only applied it to a test site or two, no live ones. Now I don’t see the pending update any longer.
I can confirm this is working very well, as I’ve got a local test with BuddyPress running on a Network enabled WordPress, and it’s all working great. On top of that, with only medium technical savvy (no programming, just as-instructed config stuff) I’ve successfully moved my BuddyPress install to a secondary blog, i.e. example.org/hub, thanks to the tutorial by the fitting name, Install BuddyPress on a secondary blog.
Darn, should’ve made a screenshot. It was disabled, honest!
No, don’t do that. The developers are aware of this and the 1.2.8 fix is out.
Thanks a bunch for all your feedback @hnla . With regards to the suspected DNS/Domain issue, do you know how we could go about putting this to the test?
I’m glad to hear that our hardware is likely be at the root of this issue, because then it’s very manageable.
Extra note: We might try out some of the techniques covered here:
I found out that if I disable Job Manager (which isn’t in use anyways) the redirect takes me to the front page (blog excerpts) instead of the activity stream.
Now, I don’t know exactly what happened, but I kept the plugin disabled, I once again re-saved the permalink of one page, and suddenly they were all working again… Sorry I can’t be of more help as to what went wrong or how I fixed it, but at least there doesn’t seem to be any problem any longer
Hmmm, doesn’t seem like it’s W3TC after all, seeing as we disabled it and nothing changed. I’m totally stumped…
Yeah, also tried making new pages, same thing. But, I’m starting to think this is a caching problem. I tried to log out and see if I could see it too then, but the system actually won’t log me out when browsing the introduction page. Browsing any other child or custom page shows the login prompt, so I am indeed logged out, the website seems to forget that whenever I’m browsing a top-tier page.
We use W3 Total Cache, I’ll ask over there.
This thread needs attention. In this state the search is just broken in comparison to similar platforms. Please don’t hold this off until the bbPress plugin arrives, it’s high time this feature sees some sweet lovin’.
Someone did indeed post a code snippet that did exactly that, though I can’t find it myself any longer. Ideally though, this would be a plugin functionality that could be enabled per-group as a check list via the WordPress backend. I’d love to engage more users to the full potential of our groups, but fact is some of our groups still exist for the sole purpose of replacing the forum board we emigrated from.
To me, a Jabber integration means a lot, because its putting more control in the users hands.
Don’t want to keep our website open in your browser window every time you wanna chat? Not a problem! Just connect with your favorite Jabber client.
ArrowChat however, just like it’s competitior CometChat, does not strike me as a very reliable solution. As an example, they have all these integrations they’re bragging about, but no in-depth explanations what-so-ever about the available features in each integration; and we’re talking about entirely different pieces of software here! Turns out their BuddyPress integration does not yet support per-group chatrooms, which is a big let-down to me.
I’m currently looking at these two:
http://im.jaxl.im – The closest you can get to a “one-click” solution for Jabber-chat on your site right now. It’s free and open source, but your chat is run by their server, not yours.
http://code.google.com/p/emite/ – I haven’t been able to entirely wrap my head around this project yet, but it looks to me like it could get anyone considering a Jabber-integration on their site off to a flying start.
