Re: Site landing on Groups instead of front page




I am a complete dumbass. I found the problem after investigating it. I realised that it can’t be the buddypress code and it surely can’t be the database.

I was wondering if the problem lay in my custom slugs because I used a custom slug on my site. So going through wp-config.php to see the slugs I came across what must have been a typo, because I remember wanting to change the groups slug at one point, this is what I had

define ( "BP_GROUPS_SLUG", '' );

Now when parsing through this the result returned to the new templates in 1.2 caused the rendering error which resulted in things not showing up properly. The funny part is that I must have done this months ago while still using 1.0.x and I suspect that the older versions of BP weren’t tricked by this.

I hope my ranting and all of this can be of help to others who might have similar problems.
