Nvm, i got it..
I took out the code where the *’s are.. and just included the template I wanted to use.
I should of tried that before asking this question.
Ok. Do some research on conflicting Java scripts. You may have to take the same code and rewrite it a different way so the codes don’t conflict.. I’m not sure how well you understand java. Also. Go into the config.php in the WordPress and turn on the debugging mode and click the load more button.. You might be able to get an idea of what’s going on if the debugging gives it to you.. Also what’s the site address?
@amalsh I’ve never really had a problem with it. Yet again the code listed above was ment for an older version on bp and WP.. It sounds like a conflicting Java or Ajax that could cause the problem. Now the question is, does it do it to every single one or just the ones loaded afew clicking load more.. If its just happening to the ones that is loaded after clicking load more I would follow the code from where the button is and find out how the code is getting loaded.. If I recall it just loops the entry.php file.. I haven’t played with bp for a while but I’ll love to help. Best thing to do is to follow the load more code and find out what its doing.. I’m pretty sure it deals with Java or Ajax.. Probably Ajax (I don’t have the files to look at them).. If the button is powered by Ajax try turning it into a regular html like but don’t have it reload the page..
after saying all that I just remembered that you don’t have to use the code at all.. I believe it has it built into it already… Inside golbal.js there is a code tords the button where it will hide the comments if they exceed more then 5.. Your best bet is to find that code and change the 5 to a 2 or even a 0 if you like.. I’d search for it inside .js files before editing the .php files and doing what I said before. If you have any problems with it just let me know and I’ll pull up old files and locate it for you
What is your website? It could be the sidebar not in the right place.
Using the template pack helps a lot, but some CSS editing may be required.
The following steps helped me stop most spam.
install s2member and follow the security steps (verify that all keys are created)
Delete the Register folders in BP (make sure to save the files)
use WordPress register form, ( you can intergrate s2members to BP )
Have the passwords e-mailed to the user that is signing up.
in custom.php change the slug of the register and members.
These steps helped me lock down my BP site. It stopped activity spam and fake members.
Your welcome. and im sorry, it is 960.css.. in your theme files, /themeroot/css/960.ss line 94. it should look like this.
width: 960px; // switch 960px to 1020px
also, do you plan on having a sidebar in the buddypress pages?
on line 94 in style.css of your theme change it to
width: 1020px; // this is the change.
margin: 0 auto;
padding: 20px 0;
(does not fix the sidebar)
Your best bet is to install buddypress template (plugin) and follow the steps ( it seems that your buddypress css is already linked to your theme)
Hint: If you are using google chrome as your browser right click on the page and click inspect element, to your right and side there is the layout of the css, you can edit the css to see what you need to change, it will show you what line and what file to change it in. ( you must have some knowledge of css/html)
Hello, im going to tell you a quick easy way to do step number 1.
Create a field called School or w.e you want to make it and make a drop down field of all the schools that you can think of.
I would also download buddyprress-better-directory ( it may not scale well with your theme depending on what theme you are using )
so now onto question number 2. As I said for your answer for number one, using the drop down menu for the schools will make it easier to search rather then having the members type in their school. as far as searching for UNC and University of North Carolina, Im sure the search would list all the UNC first, then list the University of North Carolina,
I would also suggest installing s2Members (plugin) and follow the steps to help make your buddypress/wordpress more secure,
Best of Luck,
Ps, this is just a suggestion and it really isn’t a FULL answer to your questions.
Trying useing Multisite User Management plugin. if you find a social media plugin to allow logins it should save the login into the user ID in the database there-for it should transfer over to the other sites.
It’s just a tip..
@paul gibbs Removing the registeration folder in my theme worked just fine.
I have no idea why I never tried it before. Thanks a lot!
go to your /wp-admin -> plugins -> add new.
search Buddypress Template Pack.
Install it, and run it.
Follow the simple steps…
All should work well.
Go to your /wp-admin -> plugins -> search buddypress template pack.
install and run the plugin,
(all should work well)
if that does not work then you should
link css of buddypress to the header.php
move all member files to the root of the theme,
you may have to tweet the css..
@aprioristic if needed i’ll tweak this theme for you.
Create a group,
go to the groups home page,
you will see “admin”.. Click it..
then go to “members”
that should answer your question.
I would use facebook awd..
It seems to do the trick for me..
If anything you should go to http://developers.facebook.com/
and add the codes in yourself, its kinda simple once you dig into it.
But with that said, I would suggest using Facebook AWD plugin, ( You would have to go to http://developers.facebook.com/ and make a facebook app.. the plugin will walk you through it. )
Best of luck.
I noticed that there is no CSS style to your page,
Make sure the css of buddypress and your theme is linked in the header.php.
Just double check to make sure you have the
files in your root theme.
( that was my problem )
Let me know if that helps.
There seems to be something other then just adding the name field.. The name field should be there during installment of Buddypress.
Have you modified any core files of Buddypress?
That is the correct register page.
You can add Fields to the register page by going to Buddypress>Fields>add new
I will register to make sure it works correctly.
I tried to register for your website, I noticed there is no Name field, perhaps download Buddypress and copy the register.php and place it in your FTP site of the registration file.
Ive worked with Joomla, Drupal, and tested pretty much ALL CMS, I found buddypress is easy to config. (once you learn your way around it.)
As for as the global blog, I found a plugin that allows front page posting ( you could put this in a page as Post a Job listing, and acually make a custom page to display different types of jobs. (ex, computers, part time, full time) and have that as a required option for the blog posting.
I wish you best of luck to your site!
Sorry for the late reply.
I built a page template for the activity page (activity page as the home page) using a IF user is logged in locate template mustlogin.php
I took the login bar from the buddypress widget and placed it in the template.
Same thing with the /register page.
Also, I tested a recent buddypress site and the passwords weren’t sent over https.
the problem was I created a template.
Once I get time I’ll dig more into it and place the codes of the mistake.
I will have them posted by tomorrow if you want.
Buddypress is always the right way to go.
I do suggest buddypress.
In your case I would use a plugin that allows users to pick a group to join during registering.
From there you can enable forums in the group that will act as posting for employers.
That’s just a quick though off the top of my head.
Buddypress if the quickest and fastest way to do something like that.
I wouldn’t suggest any other way.
Honestly I searched for Social Networks CMS ( EVERYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF) Unless you feel like paying 200 bucks for a program or a download link buddypress is the way to go..
Buddypress is very simple to edit and change…
As far as Privacy settings go.. yeah I know buddypress lacks that but it’s REALLY easy to create your own type of plugin to handle the privacy settings, or even script it in.
At times you don’t get a reply, but other times you do. When I did get a reply it helped out a lot.
Perhaps learn some PHP or how Buddypress and WordPress works.
Or just download Elgg and let me know how well that goes.
Best of Luck.
Ps. Buddypress ROCKS
Disregard all comments about password transmitted over https.
Found the problem…
The website is hosted off of 1and1.com.
Using wp 3.3.1
and the newest BP ( not sure what version it’s at now )
I used a program called netspark i believe,
( just had to reformat today to linux. Couldn’t stand Windows 7 >.< )
One I get the program installed, I will screen shot the reports of a BP site, and a some other social CMS ( elgg. )
The program pervades full details on why the passwords are being sent over https.
I will also contact other BP sites with their permission and test their site too and take a screen shot of the results.
Don’t get me wrong, Buddypress is one of the BEST plugins for WordPress.
also, I will see if it has something to do with WordPress it’s self.
The reason why im bringing this up is due to the fact that I installed Elgg on a different domain and the passwords were secure.
