Re: BuddyPress and WordPress 3.0
the avatar issue seems to come form an incorrect value for the upload_path option in wp_options for the main blog. Make sure it is set to: wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files
Once I updated the option manually in the database, everything worked fine. Also if you have an old .htaccess file from WPMU, it needs to change to use the new ms-files.php in the rewrite rules:
RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]
I’m using WP3.0 beta-1 and BP 1.3-bleeding and things seem to work OK for the most part except the Blogs area is a bit shaky. I don’t get the My Blogs admin bar menu item.
So the recommendation is to use BP 1.2.3? Hm, how do I downgrade? Can I just disable BP, reinstall 1.2.3 and then reactivate it?
