    Probably not really unless you (or a developer) builds something custom, but one of the things we will do soon – either in the next release (2.3) or the one after (2.4), we’re seriously looking at overhauling how we handle images. We’ll keep this use case in mind (having them stored in the media gallery).

    Could you tell us what precisely they had to change?

    I’m not really sure creating two threads about problems with other plugins breaking was really necessary. One was sufficient.

    Hi @kkradel

    Sorry to hear you’re having problems with 2.2. How has it broken Featured Posts — can you explain what you’re seeing, and also what you expect to see?

    Did you update any other plugins, translations, or core files at the same that you updated BuddyPress?

    I wonder if there’s a plugin that does this now.

    Yes, but I don’t think we know when that might happen yet (probably several months away as an indication, no promises).

    Hey @peter-hamilton

    Congrats on your progress so far. The images aren’t loading for me here, unfortunately.

    Right. To be clear:

    Members registrations need to be active, AND each member must have logged in, before they show up in the Members Directory.

    From reading that documentation, it looks like the files are named correctly. I’m not sure.
    Maybe @hnla or @henrywright

    Where doesn’t the option appear? Are you able to take a screenshot to help explain?

    This is working as intended. The reason is that if we made those links in the Activity Stream to use your site’s normal permalink pattern, if the permalink is changed in the future, all the old links in the Activity Stream would probably break. It’s not scalable to re-generate all those links when the permalinks are changed, especially on giant sites.

    In short, I wouldn’t worry about this. The ?p= style links should redirect to the post’s full/normal URL, so it has minimal affect on your users.

    I read that the BP default theme has been retired and should not show up under Appearance > Themes unless it’s still in use.

    That’s not quite true. If you can remember where you read it, please let me know, and I’ll see about correcting the information.

    If you had a BuddyPress site prior to version 2.0, then we will always make BP-Default available in the themes list. If you were to install BuddyPress today on a new site that did not have BuddyPress installed before, then it would not show up. I hope that makes sense.

    (I’m not sure if we started this behaviour in version 1.9 or 2.0, but it was around then).

    Are you implying that your hidden groups show up if you use a browser other than IE 9 and 11?

    No, @mentions was improved in 2.1. There are some tweaks in 2.2 for better compatibility on a mobile device, but nothing major.

    I think we need to look at one of the problems at a time, otherwise we’ll never figure it out. Let’s take creating a new Group as an example.

    Please can you explain exactly how you are creating a group (including what content you’re entering for the group name and group description, and so on), and how far you get through that process before you some kind of error message.

    It looks like your theme always assumes the Activity component is active.

    I think most complicated things contain the risk of unexpected dragons.

    Unfortunately, we don’t have an exporter/importer for BuddyPress yet. I’ve asked around to see if anyone’s built one, but you might have to end up exporting/importing the MySQL database tables, which can be pretty tricky.

    What is the “mindfulness-resources” page — do you have that set as the home page for your site, or is it mapped to one of the BuddyPress components (which one)?

    It would also be useful to know what plugins and themes you have on your site. I wonder if something’s messing with the rewrite rules, we can try to help you figure it out.

    I’m not sure, but it sounds like your line of thought is valid. Using a cookie for this seems a bit weird, but hey, that’s how it’s been implemented at the moment. :)

    If when you finish working through things, you still think you’re onto a bug with the missing cookie idea, please would you submit an explanation of the issue over on our bug tracker at https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/newticket ?

    Hmm. Just to check — this used to work fine on your site before its move?

    Your function is hooked to bp_init, and bp_init occurs once per page load. So if you refresh the page lots of times, you’ll get lots of fields. :)

    Thanks — I’ve received your email.

    One of the windows is showing a bunch of “-1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)” entries for /plugins/buddypress-media/. Just because it says “BuddyPress” in its name doesn’t mean it’s BuddyPress itself. :)

    Can you remove this plugin and give it some time to see if your server crashes again?
    Ultimately I think you need to contact support for that plugin (I’m assuming it’s RTMedia), but removing it and testing should pretty positively prove one way or another if it’s related to that.

    If you can’t disable that plugin, then I think your only option is to talk to that plugin’s support team and hope they can figure something out.
