Done, thanks Paul, here’s the ticket: https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3692
for now, can I edit the register.php in my child theme for a workaround? I’m thinking if I can make the text box localised I can edit the field label instead in a .mo file? Any guidance on how I could edit the code to make that happen please?
@djpaul – I’m using 1.51. How can I do this please? Thanks.
Hi all, for others finding this – I have just had this problem too. I resolved it by checking the contents of the bb-config.php file and changing the paths to the database (I had backed up and restored my site to a new server), then creating a new group and testing the forums – which worked first time. Checking/unchecking in forum settings did nothing for the existing groups in my setup, I had to delete and recreate groups.
@r-a-y, sorry to ask you directly. Please can you tell me if it’s possible to do this? Thanks.
I would also like to know how to add a description to the Name field – is that possible too? Thanks.
Thanks for the reply karmatosed. I have just tried this. Changed from a custom structure (did BP do this?):
Month and name, but it didn’t work. I’ve just had a thought – I followed the codex instructions here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network to add a subdirectory multisite 2 days ago, but changed back because it was not what was needed. I’ve replaced my original .htaccess and wp-config and dropped the multisite tables, but could this have caused this problem?
ok, thanks @modemlooper. For others:
I copied this:
if ( !function_exists( ‘bp_dtheme_widgets_init’ ) ) :
through to the endif; into my child theme’s functions.php, and it seems to work.
