    If the Friends component is enabled, you’ll first need some friends. :)

    After that, just type an @ sign and start typing. You should get a drop-down with suggestions.

    I assume you’ve tried other images — i.e. it’s not a problem with the one image you have been testing with?

    I’m not sure, this is pretty odd.

    @imath Any ideas?

    The email stuff is in 2.5. It’s due out at the start of March.

    It doesn’t look like there’s a function to clear those messages, but if you empty the global directly (bp->template_message and $bp->template_message_type), you’ll see that bp_core_add_message sets a cookie, so you’ll probably need to clear those cookies, too.

    It sounds like this should work.

    It shouldn’t be doing this. I’d carry on by seeing if it’s related to any custom code in your theme or any other plugin or customisation you’ve made.

    I’m 99% sure BuddyPress does not itself send the Lost Password email (or trigger any code that does that), so my suspicion is in another plugin. Do you have anything customising wp-login.php (the log-in screen)? That’s where the Lost Password email is usually sent from.

    As these features are pretty new, there mightn’t be any existing plugins that offer this. I’m not sure it’s likely someone will spend the time reading the code and figuring it out to reply here unless you’ve started looking at the PHP yourself, in which case, let me know how far you got, and we’ll see if we can figure it out together.

    So the same image can be uploaded OK to the media library, but not BuddyPress? Very odd. How big is this image? (in resolution, and file size)

    It looks like you’ve tried all the normal investigative things, so thanks.

    Not sure without debugging the code — but why does registration on your site take me to http://192.241.173.232/wordpress/register/ ? Totally different URL etc.

    I wonder if that has something to do with it.

    EDIT: is this your testing still? Do you have two different WordPress sites?

    I don’t know how well it works, but I found https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-message-attachment/ from a quick search.

    Yes, the new stuff is pretty close to testing. I will come back here and add some screenshots once I’ve progressed the work to testing stage so everyone can see it

    While this doesn’t help much, it’s an issue with bbPress, not BuddyPress.

    We can’t support the Followers plugin here.

    About the groups tag, I thought we fixed the no-count issue recently. What version of BuddyPress are you using?

    @imath any idea if we need to change the name sync stuff for new WP?

    Quit recommending Welcome Pack!! It hasn’t been updated in 4 years!! I would be surprised if it works.

    There is no reason why a call to get_post_meta should not work. Are you certain the post ID you are passing to it is valid, and that the record with the meta_key, exists?

    Hi Steve

    It’s not meant to work. We need to update buddypress.org to remove/hide those options. Sorry for the confusion.

    It’s to do with the pagination for the Activity Directory screen.

    If you have more than 20 activity items (by default), you get a “load more” bar/button at the bottom of the Activity Directory. BuddyPress uses this cookie to store the current “page” of results that you’re on (so it doesn’t load duplicates).

    You’ve said “not anymore”, implying it used to work.
    What have you changed since it stopped working?

    Looking at the DOM, I see a “surname” field wrapped in double(!) font tags, so something’s clearly been customised which you need to address: http://cl.ly/1A2p0u253q14

    Watch also your custom CSS. You have this which is directly causing the labels to be hidden:

    label {
        display: none;
        margin-bottom: 5px;
        font-weight: 700;
    }

    wp_bb_posts is bbPress 1, *not* BuddyPress. :)

    I don’t know if there’s anyone interesting in working on that old versions of bbPress any more. If you haven’t already, I’d suggest posting on https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ so that at least the issue is logged.

    Not possible out of the box. Not sure about plugins.

    Are you using the official French translation?

    Hi @josephz94

    Users can upload profile pictures (in theory) however I was not able to upload a picture. I kept getting a http error.

    Do you do anything like upload the media library onto Amazon S3 or some other cloud service?

    -the Favorite button was unresponsive

    It sounds you’ve got several button problems. Do you know how to look at your web browser’s Javascript error console, and see if there is any output? (On page load, and also when you try to click the button)

    BuddyPress Activity Plus

    Have you tested disabling this plugin to see if it had any affect?

    Buddy press is activated on a per site basis in a multi-site, multi-network installation.

    Multi-network is a pretty advanced configuration, so to cover bases, it would be interesting to know what you’ve done to enable multi-network in both WordPress and BuddyPress, please?

    2.4’s out now.

    BuddyPress 2.4 — probably due out this week — changes multi-line text area fields to use TinyMCE, like the WordPress post editor.

    Wonder if this is related to https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6685 ?
