    Issue is solved – if I turn off the Group Announcements plug in, all is well and anyone can now post to Groups or My Profile. Thanks!



    Thank you mrjarbenne, I appreciate the advice and will keep that doc in my back pocket through this adventure. And thanks for pointing me in the right direction with the above suggested IIS link.

    I am pleased to report that my BP links are now working. Here is what I did and where I got stumped initially:

    Using Windows 2012 R2 server with IIS manager to setup a local intranet.

    So I created a site called “Test” and here is what happened:
    1- I followed the direction in the link provided above by first taking Permalinks off of Default and using the suggested custom structure.
    2- I created a web.config file and placed it in the wwwroot folder (same top level as the โ€œTestโ€ folder).
    3- I copied the code from what was suggested in the link:
    <rule name=”Main Rule” stopProcessing=”true”>
    <match url=”.*” />
    <conditions logicalGrouping=”MatchAll”>
    <add input=”{REQUEST_FILENAME}” matchType=”IsFile” negate=”true” />
    <add input=”{REQUEST_FILENAME}” matchType=”IsDirectory” negate=”true” />
    <action type=”Rewrite” url=”test/index.php”/>

    Two differences with what was provided in the link and what I used above in order for it to work for me:
    1- I placed it within the <system.webserver> container. Not a coder, so not sure if this mattered or not.
    2- I correctly entered MY FILE LOCATION to the index.php file (test/index.php)

    At this point, I have links that are working. That’s a win and it’s on to the next challenge in order to use BP. Totally stoked now. Having some issue with the profile/avatart pic not appearing in order for the user to crop, but that is likely another topic to search or create ๐Ÿ™‚




    Thanks for the reply. I actually tried that last week but without success. Maybe I missed a step. I’ll do a fresh install of WP on the server and try it again. I really want this to work, BP is the best solution for our office and this is my only roadblock…which is kind of a biggie.
