Re: Need Testers: Activation Issue with BP v 1.2.5

Jeff Sayre


@hnla: I should have been more clear. With WP3.0, the “Activate” link for BuddyPress is replaced with “Network Only”. To activate BuddyPress, you have to click the “Network Activate” link.

I have tracked down this issue. It is specific to WP 2.9.2 only. I thought I was seeing it in both WP 2.9.2 and WP 3.0. But, after reinstalling everything, I can only reproduce it in WP 2.9.2.

Would someone please confirm this on a WP 2.9.2 install. I suppose it could be a quirk in my dev setup, but this issue did not exist with the four or five 1.2.5 branch versions that I tested yesterday.

If others can replicate this issue, then the “Requires at least” tag in BP’s readme.txt file should be changed to WP 3.0. Otherwise, we will have people activating BP for a single blog, and not site wide–that is if they just click the “Activate” link in WP 2.9.2.

Do we need to updated the information for plugin devs? Should they include the “Network: true” tag in the header of whatever file they consider their loader file?
