im thinking it might have to do with the unified global search plugin that i got from buddydev.com
I’m assuming it’s the buddypress plugin that caused it because it happened right after i upgraded to 1.5.1 in dashboard.
ok i just renamed the buddypress folder in wp-content/plugins via cpanel file manager. still cant access my wp-admin
using bluehost by the way. and im not sure what im suppose to do to use my backup file to restore the entire site.
HOLY SMOKES! i figured it out, the bp-custom.php file mustve been corrupted because i deleted and simply tried to replace the code. and now it works!!!
thanks for all the help @mercime!!!!
@mercime, but it doesnt change the fact that my members are still autojoining the group when they reply to a post. the original code only disables the autojoin when starting a new topic.
@r-a-y @quint, yeah i already made a child theme. and am trying to figure out how to edit the header size. i followed the tutorial (http://buddydress.com/2010/04/custom-header-tutorial-adding-an-image-and-changing-the-size/).
ray i added this to my child’s function.php define( ‘HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT’, 300 );. and on my dashboard i can indeed upload bigger images, but after saving it, my site homepage still displays the default size header. furhtermore the images i upload are always messed up on the bottom or top.
heres what i mean
@mercime, yeah im not sure what thats suppose to do. but as soon as i log out of admin, i get a bunch of error messages saying cannot modify header etc.
im still trying to disable the autojoin function. the code define(‘BP_DISABLE_AUTO_GROUP_JOIN’,true);
only disables the autojoin when starting a new topic. the autojoin for post reply is still active.
@sbruner, yeah i figured that out right before i read this. any chance you can help me out on this other topic
got universal search to work. anyone know how i can add group documents to the search results page?
@r-a-y, remove custom css from which file? default.css?
as soon as i put
define( ‘HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT’, 300 );
into my functions.php, i cant access wp-admin dashboard. i get this message: Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home6/stemcomm/public_html/wp-content/themes/STEM/functions.php:17) in /home6/stemcomm/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 934
@sbruner, great news! i finally got it to work! thanks for the all resources and help man. really really appreciate it!!!! one last question, is the header widget suppose to be below the default buddypress banner? i was hoping for it to be on the banner.
my widgetized footer only displays the widgets vertically and not hortizontally. i believe ill have to do some style.css with this but im not very good with coding. So i decided to not use widgets and just edit the codes in my child’s footer.php to include links to pages. hahaha works great but hopefully i didnt do something wrong by using this alternative route.
@r-a-y, when you say (YOUR IMAGE URL HERE) do you mean just paste a link to the picture we want? How would i change these codes so that I can simply upload a new header image in dashboard and crop it to a certain size?
i’ve used this tutorial http://buddydress.com/2010/04/custom-header-tutorial-adding-an-image-and-changing-the-size/
but it gets all messed up when i edit my child theme’s default.css
awesome suggestion ewebber. i found that line in the file forum.php located in bp-default/groups/single/. i made a copy of the folders and file into my child theme: childtheme/groups/single/forum.php. and i deleted the line “You will auto join when you create a new topic”.
my users now don’t auto join when creating a new topic and the message is no longer there. HOWever, my users still auto join to the group when replying to a topic, and the message “You will auto join this group when you reply to this topic” is still there and it still works.
i thought the custom.php command would disable both of them. but apparently it only disabled the new topic auto join and not the new post auto join.
@mercime, thanks for the help. although when i post as a test user, i don’t automatically join the group. BUT the phrase “You will auto join this group when you reply to this topic.” still appears.
any tips on getting rid of that?
@sbruner, on the homepage of my site, right below the header it says : “widgetize header, This panel is active and ready for you to add some widgets via the WP Admin”. same with the footer. yeah i copied and pasted the exact codes from the article.
@sbruner, okay that second article was a lot more easy to follow. so now it says my footer and header are ready to be used as widgets. but when i got to wp-admin/apperance/widgets, i only see the menu for sidebar widgets, shouldnt there be a footer and header as well?
thats the only line i put into the bp-custom.php file. does that affect anything? and im pretty sure i put the bp-custom file in the right place.
bump, has there been a solution to this? im also having the same problem
@sbruner, is that article up to date for the current version of wordpress and buddypress? I created a child theme and made a blank functions.php file and added the codes from step 1 and step 2. now Im a little confused with step 3, where am i suppose to put those codes and am I suppose to rename my functions.php file to page.php?
