Regarding the links, I took a closer look and was able to see what you were talking about. While it was simply linking back to my own profile, I could see the syntax seemed to be trying to do a search, which went back to absolutely nothing. Still unclear why it chose the words and phrases that it did, since there was nothing else to match them to, but happy to have been able to turn it off so easily.
Thanks again, very much!
Regarding the suppression of URL fields, I’ll need to do a bit more digging on that. It may be my theme sanitizing it.
Regarding the linking: sometimes it is picking the first 5 words in a field, but often not. It seems to be grabbing words and phrases from all over the place (middle of a paragraph, multiple places in a paragraph, end of a paragraph). The odd thing is that there is no other context to link to, as I am the only one using it thus far. Rather curious and very random, especially given the fact that the links it’s creating treat the words/phrases chosen as “users”. Not certain what the purpose of that is, but guessing I am missing something.
Thanks again for the assistance! Going to implement this straight away.
Keeping a warm thought,
By the way, I’m using the Commons-in-a-Box default Infinity theme, so this shouldn’t be a case of a badly written theme. I’ve tried to stick with the recommendations out of the box to get things stable.
Hi, Henry. Thanks a bunch for your response. I’ve been trying to work through this for several months, and the lead developer on my ISP’s DreamPress installation has said straight up that BuddyPress does NOT work on DreamPress for the reasons I mentioned in my initial post. The Varnish caching is not meant to support a membership site.
(And I have had the same experience you had with 1&1. I left them for DreamHost years ago and am really glad I did. That’s what makes this currently hitch kind of sad. DreamHost has generally been really good with support.)
Thanks again, and best wishes!
The last one’s a winner. Works like a charm.
“Nav Menu Roles” plug-in is compatible up to 3.8.1.
It’s super easy to install, and requires no configuration. Just go into
Dashboard -> Appearance -> Menus
once you’ve activated it, and it’s options automatically show up when you’re configuring menu items, even if they are not BuddyPress components. Great if you’re linking to a specific doc.
Hopefully this will help someone else out. Drove me mad.
Also wondering if anyone can offer an opinion on using the “Nav Menu Roles” plug-in, which appears to be compatible up to 3.8.1?
I’m wondering about the “Menu Items Visibility Control” plug-in, allowing you to use WordPress Conditional Tags to enable or disable menu items on the front-end.
It says it’s compatible up to WordPress 3.6.1. Has anyone used this successfully on WordPress 3.8.1?
