sadly we have to stick like glue to the stable packaged releases of RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), so a php upgrade out-of-cycle is highly unlikely. Bring on RHEL6…
@DJPaul – have verified with plugins disabled and default theme installed… same story.
Just for completeness, I fixed those IE errors by changing
in availability.js and email_checker.js
>>Just because Facebook does something a particular way doesn’t make it a best practise
– true, but you can bet your bottom dollar they’ll have done some serious multi-variate testing on the conversion rates of that sign-up form.
There are plenty of arguments on both sides, but as part of a full usability overhaul I’m falling more on the side of fewer fields.
This jquery plugin looks like it could be a good usability enhancement too:
Thanks for pointing me towards bp-xtra-signup plugin, it looks great (though I’m getting JS errors in IE6 and IE7 when using the ajax auto-checkers…)
It’s all about cutting those barriers to entry…
As Ehegwer says, self-service via the password reset function is something everyone will be familiar with. Facebook for example, has no password confirmation requirement.
Anyhow, in the end I did it with a small and relatively unobtrusive core hack.
@DJPaul I’m on php 5.1.6 and get this problem. Other unusual bits about my setup are that it’s a sub-directoy install and I’m using a proxy for all outgoing script connections.
Thanks all for the speedy patches. As JJJ points out, the first one will be tricky to get ‘right’… needs the option to reassign groups to a given user instead of deleting.
not running any caching yet, no.
I’ve narrowed down the problem however – it actually seems to be caused by deleting the wp USER who created the group. Doing that removes the user’s group(s) from the listings page, but doesn’t remove them from wp_bp_groups (and therefore the count is also incorrect).
thanks for clarifying on the bb forum thing.
running on WP 3.0.0 and BP 126.96.36.199. Only unusual thing is that I’m using a proxy for external http connections. Any idea how I can troubleshoot? (The debug mode is not much help because of this other problem: https://buddypress.org/community/groups/installing-buddypress/forum/topic/installed-and-activated-buddypress-wall-of-warnings/)
I have the same problem – did you find any resolution?
I’m also finding that deleting a group does not delete its forum from the wp_bb_forums database table
Hi thanks for your suggestions everyone, and sorry for the delay… I didn’t receive any email notification of these replies – is that normal? I’m still very new to BP…
