Does anyone out there have any other info that may help me out? I’m stuck on this small issue and I can’t seem to figure it out.
Thanks in advance.
I would also rather use filter hooks, but I cannot figure out how to do it. I’ve searched everywhere, but I can’t seem to find the answer to this specific problem. Can you either show me or link me to a post where it is explained a bit? Also, would I just be modifying bp-custom.php? I understand to a certain extent, but I’m not a professional coder.
Thanks a lot, that looks like it should work! I have a couple questions for you if you don’t mind…although they might be silly. Do I just throw that code in my functions.php file? Also, will I still be able to log in as admin at http://www.site.com/wp-admin without being redirected?
Thanks so much for your help.
I was able to comment out the entire form with /* and */, but the user is still directed to a general settings page (that is now blank except for the title “General Settings”). Granted this is better than having the password and email field, but is there a way for me to bypass that tab and go straight to the notifications?
Also, I have settings checked in the admin panel because I want the user to be able to change the notification and privacy preferences. Is that correct?
I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this before, but I could just hide the tab in CSS (like I did previously) and then use a 301 redirect match in my htaccess from settings to settings/notifications. Huh, is that a viable way to achieve this?
I just did a lot of searching and the only thing I came up with was a thread that was over 1 1/2 years old. It’s https://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/hide-general-settings/
Since it’s such an old thread and my php code knowledge is mainly copying/pasting with a bit of manipulation…I wanted to ask you what you thought about it first. I wasn’t sure how the newer version of Buddypress would react and I was scared to break my site…ha. I’d obviously like to deal with this situation via CSS because it’s easy and it won’t be affected if an update overwrites my functions.php…but I’m down for whatever works. Thanks again for the help.
Thanks for the advice….that sounds awesome! If I hide the password fields, it would still contain the email field right? I neglected to mention that I don’t want users to change the email on that page either…my bad. Is there a way to bypass that tab altogether?
BTW, your extended settings plugin is great! I just gave it 5 stars…it’s helped me out a lot.
I finally figured it out with the help of Ravi from Digital Access Pass. DAP is awesome by the way (in case you need a membership plugin).
Anyway, BP was using the “display name” or “nice name” which was creating my problem. Now that I fixed this issue it’s working like a charm!
O.K., I finally figured it out myself. So in case you came across this thread in search of a resolution, here it is…
Edit your .htaccess file on your server. This can be done by manually editing it via FTP or with the Yoast SEO plugin directly in WordPress (which is obviously easier).
Put the following code in .htaccess file. If you don’t know where or how to insert the code check out http://www.squidoo.com/301
Anyway, in the code below, I’m redirecting only http://www.YOURWEBSITE.com/members to a location of my choice. In this case, I’m redirecting it to my homepage, but you can choose any location you like. Make sure to leave the ^ and $ or else it will not work properly. It basically tells the redirect to only move that single URL and nothing else associated with it. That way when a user enters a group, they can still see all of the members in that group. Here it is…Enjoy!
RedirectMatch 301 ^/members/$ http://www.YOURWEBSITE.com/
Does anyone have a wild idea I haven’t thought of? I’ve been back in forth between this forum and DAP support but I’m totally stumped. The only difference that I can see in the users I created in Dap synched to WP vs. the users I created in WP alone is that…
The WP only users: BP displays their full name in the forums, but the profile page links to their user name. This is the working users config!
The DAP users: BP displays their username in the forums and the profile is also their username. These users cannot access their profiles.
When I campare the two in WordPress/Users, I cannot see any difference, so there must be something happening during registration, right? Is there any way to alter the way BP registers users or does anyone have a solution for this?
Thanks for all of your help!
I have a similar issue and have posted here https://buddypress.org/community/groups/installing-buddypress/forum/topic/new-users-profile-problem/
I still can’t get mine working but maybe one of these fixes will work for you…
Thanks @mercime, but unfortunately I’ve tried all of those things and have googled it numerous times. I’ve been at this for a couple days…ha. I have everything synching to WP in DAP, but one small thing is going wrong…I just can’t figure it out. Anyway, I appreciate your help. If anyone has any knowledge about this specific problem please let me know. Thanks for all of the replies!
The members with working profiles in the links above have all been added directly to WP instead of Dap to WP, but the WP info for all of them match the format exactly. It must be bypassing something in BP…dunno.
Thanks for the reply. Yes, I went through the process and all 6 folders were transferred to my theme’s folder. And oddly enough, all links work when I’m using my admin account. I’m able to edit my profile, change the avatar, etc. I can even see all the members in the activity panel, but when I click on their profile’s, the page is not found. Basically, members seem to be added to BP because they are allowed to post in the groups and forums and everyone is visible by username. The problem is that no profile page (except for admin) works…totally strange.
I’m testing BP on an active site (I know that this is not recommended), but I’m using digitalaccesspass and an integrated theme so it’s easier for me to troubleshoot with my plugs. So, there are no BP links setup in my menu at the time because I’m beta testing it out. If you go to http://www.mymusicmasterclass.com/members, http://www.mymusicmasterclass.com/groups, http://www.mymusicmasterclass.com/forums, etc. you’ll see what I’m talking about.
To make it more confusing, if I register a user with WP (bypassing DAP) it works even as a subscriber. So, there must be something going on when DAP syncs to WP. The thing is that it looks fine either way, so I’m not sure what I’m missing. When a user registers thorough DAP they’re automatically added to WP too and I can’t find a difference when comparing the 2. In both instances, the info looks identical. Am I missing something obvious here?
I also cleared my brower cache and I have no cache plugins installed due to my member plugin. I then deactivated BP and BP template pack and reactivated them…still no luck.
Thanks Hugo but unfortunately the soft flush didn’t do the trick. I went to permalinks and saved it twice…that’s correct, right?
After hours of research, I also tried to adding define( ‘BP_ENABLE_USERNAME_COMPATIBILITY_MODE’, true ); to my wpconfig file, but that didn’t work either.
I’m totally confused here. It looks like everything is working except for the profile pages…any other ideas?
One more thing I forgot to mention. Activity, Members and all the rest of the permalinks are all totally functional. I can see if a member posts, but if I click their name (to get to their profile) I get the “page not found” error. So it seems that I’m having a problem creating new pages for each new member…strange. Thanks again.
