    Hi all!

    Problem: I try to translate the plugin Buddypress User Blog, using Loco Translate. There is a …/plugins/buddypress-user-blog/languages/buddypress-user-blog-en_US.po file, which I copied to buddypress-user-blog-de_DE.po. I use the copy for translation. But translated file does not have any effect, neither if saved in plugins/buddypress-user-blog/languages/buddypress-user-blog-de_DE_formal.po nor in languages/loco/plugins/buddypress-user-blog-de_DE_formal.po.

    Any ideas?

    Kind regards

    My Setting:
    WP, Version 6.0.3
    BuddyBoss-Plattform, Version 2.0.8
    BuddyBoss Platform Pro, Version 2.1.1
    BuddyPress Docs, Version 2.1.7
    BuddyPress Group Tabs Creator Pro, Version 1.1.9
    BuddyPress Groups Extra, Version 3.6.10
    BuddyPress Integration for WooCommerce, Version 3.4.8
    BuddyPress Simple Events, Version 5.1
    BuddyPress User Blog, Version 1.3.5
    BuddyPress User Profile Tabs Creator Pro, Version 1.2.6
    Loco Translate, Version 2.6.2
    and more …


    Hi @fawp

    Thank you for responding and thank you for the template, I will ensure to follow that if I ever need help again.

    I noticed it after configuring Paid Membership Pro.

    I’ve not changed themes as I’m only aware of BuddyX and my customer won’t pay for BuddyBoss. What theme do you recommend I test it with?



    Some of the page links (notifications, groups, messages) redirect to the home page on my mobile device. The links work in the desktop version.

    Found the problem.. Turned out to be the “Paid Memberships Pro – BuddyPress & BuddyBoss Add On” plugin. still working on a resolution.


    Hello, and thank you for all the great work!

    I have been using WordPress for about 15 years. I started my first online community in 2008.
    I then chose not to use Buddypress, because at the time it was fine with a forum. Facebook hadn’t invented its activity wall yet, and people didn’t expect too much.

    Now in 2022 I am in the process of re-launching this old online community again, after it has been dead for a number of years. (Mostly because Facebook arrived)
    Meanwhile, I’ve been using WordPress & Woocommerce a lot – last couple of years – with Gutenberg and Blocks. An absolutely fantastic solution to a lot of problems!

    If you use WordPress, it’s because you can do something yourself, but you can’t do everything.

    I was therefore really looking forward to getting started with Buddypress in relation to the relaunch I’m about to start, but I was a little disappointed when I saw that it is not at all possible to use gutenberg to style the absolutely required pages. For example Register, Profile, Members, Activity etc.

    I think many who now use WordPress are people who want to own their own information, have 100% control, and to shape something themselves out of their own creativity. They may have some knowledge, but not always enough to do programming, or to go deep into css and theme design etc. They don’t have time for that either.

    Gutenberg blocks are therefore the perfect bridge between those who know a LITTLE, but need the help of software to do the rest, and who want to create something quickly.
    I think there are many of us..

    Wordpress scores highly here with blocks and easy solutions.

    You can now use Kadence Theme + Gutenberg blocks to create almost anything you want.

    I’m not a programmer myself, but I own a couple of companies. Much of the joy is being able to create something, see it being used, make it work – and I can do that by using blocks.

    I’ve gone back and forth between Buddypress and Buddyboss, after I realized that Buddypress doesn’t yet have this functionality and tried to think what I really want.
    With Buddyboss, I get a great theme, and it has all the functionality I need – but I’m completely locked into just that. Also, I’m not very impressed with companies that take credit for a product that was originally created by someone else. That is why I prefer to use Buddypress, and I also see Buddypress as the authority here.

    I think you Buddypress developers will be able to deliver something more in the future, than what I expect from a company working with a product not originally made by themselves.

    But still I see it difficult using Buddypress as it would turn out to be much more expensive, since I have to contact someone at upWork to do it the way I want it.
    To many people it would be more logical to pay a couple of hundred dollars to be able to start tomorrow.

    So my contribution to the discussion is perhaps not a secret: Make buddypress elements ready to use as blocks. And make sure to market it as a “point and click system with Gutenberg”

    Additionally, specifically for my online community, I will need:
    – Forums
    – Private messaging
    – Notification system
    – Nice looking user profiles
    – Speedy site
    – Friends
    – Follow friends
    – Moderation system for both community and forums.

    Hi @dimensionmedia & @sunsetcowboy

    Thanks a lot for your very interesting feedbacks 😍.

    I think we’ve deliberately avoid the buddyboss subject because it has been talked a lot here and we end up talking more about this fork than BuddyPress 😇.

    I believe we shouldn’t try to do features the same way they’re doing. We need to lead by example, to innovate, to carry on being good citizens of the open source and being supportive about WordPress choices (eg: going into blocks as much as we can).

    I don’t think « customers » are into the BuddyPress « targets ». We want to provide totally free, open source & secure community features to WordPress sites and every human being. We’re trying to make wise & « general interest » oriented choices.

    We have a very important advantage : we are into the WordPress Official Plugins directory, we should really use this advantage and split BuddyPress into smaller parts as it will always be easier to install Addons hosted on the WordPress Plugins directory.

    The « lite » featured Buddypress idea is very interesting, it could be BP Core + BP Members, the only 2 required components.

    And David, we really need to organize this « Buddy-World-Camp » 🙌😅. We also need to get together 😍


    On a personal note, one thing I would like to see on BuddyPress is a complete Groups hierarchy with (multiple) parents, siblings and child groups. I reckon this would open a whole new market for things like geneology (big business).

    Also I think you should take a good look at the rival product BuddyBoss, which, feature wise, is ahead of Buddypress in so many ways. A good media integration for example is a must have, likewise a file download system. BP could have the edge on its rival though, simply because the latter concentrates on Premium features.

    Just my 2 cents

    David Bisset

    I might be too close to BuddyPress since using it since the 0.1 days (yes, that version is right). I do agree more with the comments so far about the “product fit” and some of that “vibe” feels like some people talking about where WordPress itself (which BP relies on) although I feel WordPress still fills many holes and has a long life to it. But there are two factors I consider to be competitors that offer attractive, “modern/hip”, and easier (in same cases) solutions:

    – TikTok, Instagram, etc. social networks – the trend of posting content OUTSIDE your site and not truly 100% owning it. These are the “Wix” and “Medium” versions that WordPress exists with. They are easier to setup and the social mass effect can’t be beat. It would be neat though to have a BP-lite that could setup a TikTok like video sharing network (perhaps that could intergrate with 3rd parties). I’m not sure if there’s a “build this feature and it will help big” here, since if a user or client wants to use them you can’t stop them. But appeal maybe to the niche (which BuddyPress has always done well) and the customizers out there that maybe want something like them, or something that has a slimed down feature set with an attractive new theme/look.

    – BuddyBoss. Surprised this hasn’t been brought up. Look at what they are doing in terms of features. The past few freelance projects that the cilents could have used BuddyPress on for new projects, they went and paid for BuddyBoss. My observations has been because of the (1) marketing, (2) features, and (3) continued support (the mobile app also maybe played a part although I’ve heard disappointing experiences about that). I know some don’t like BuddyBoss because they’ve forked BP and (as far as I know) really haven’t contributed anything back (GPL, open source, etc.) But if you’re looking for features, look at what this for-profit company is doing (big and small) because logically they are likely listening to their base and current customers and their actions and focus might be some input.

    I do support a BuddyCamp (I used to have a BuddyCamp Miami way back… in 2010 I think?).

    Some good BuddyPress plugins have been difficult to recommend because of their maintenance or lack thereof, with no fault to the authors. But BuddyPress always needs SOME plugins when being used for projects. Might be also nice for other plugin companies (say Yoast?) to promote their BuddyPress support.

    I would love to see a new theme but not sure yet what direction to offer further $0.02 on that.

    No real comments from a coding perspective – there are developers here with more experience in that. A “BuddyPress lite” plugin if you’re talking about “restarting from another plugin” might be worth some discussion. Imagine just spending 5 minutes with a few clicks and you have your own private, secure social network just for your friends/family. Simple. Easy. Modern looking, works with modern tech, etc.


    Hi. Now the link to the profile page looks like this –

    How to make a link to profiles like this? –

    Or like this? –

    Use buddyboss. Maybe have hooks for function.php?


    BuddyBoss is a fork of BuddyPress, done several years ago. The codes bases have diverged.


    > …wp-content/plugins/buddyboss-platform

    These are the forums for BuddyPress, not BuddyBoss.



    I want to make the Activity Post Form accessible to WordPress pages using short codes.
    The reference to the post form can be found here: html/wp-content/plugins/buddyboss-platform/bp-templates/bp-nouveau/buddypress/activity/index.php

    Which contains this…

     * The template for BuddyBoss Activity templates
     * This template can be overridden by copying it to yourtheme/buddypress/activity/index.php.
     * @since   BuddyPress 2.3.0
     * @version 1.0.0
    	<?php bp_nouveau_before_activity_directory_content(); ?>
    	<?php if ( is_user_logged_in() ) : ?>
    		<?php bp_get_template_part( 'activity/post-form' ); ?>
    	<?php endif; ?>
    	<?php bp_nouveau_template_notices(); ?>
    	<?php if ( ! bp_nouveau_is_object_nav_in_sidebar() ) : ?>
    		<?php bp_get_template_part( 'common/nav/directory-nav' ); ?>
    	<?php endif; ?>
    	<div class="screen-content">
    		<?php bp_get_template_part( 'common/search-and-filters-bar' ); ?>
    		<?php bp_nouveau_activity_hook( 'before_directory', 'list' ); ?>
    		<div id="activity-stream" class="activity" data-bp-list="activity">
    				<div id="bp-ajax-loader"><?php bp_nouveau_user_feedback( 'directory-activity-loading' ); ?></div>
    		</div><!-- .activity -->
    		<?php bp_nouveau_after_activity_directory_content(); ?>
    	</div><!-- // .screen-content -->

    I want to reuse the following code which can also be found in the file above:

    	<?php if ( is_user_logged_in() ) : ?>
    		<?php bp_get_template_part( 'activity/post-form' ); ?>
    	<?php endif; ?>

    So I created a short code in functions.php in the child theme, which I use to place in WordPress pages as a shortcode…

    function InsertPostForm() {
    	if ( is_user_logged_in() ) :
    		php bp_get_template_part( 'activity/post-form' );
    add_shortcode('InsPostForm', 'InsertPostForm');

    However, my solution does not work. I am very desperately in need of a solution. Please note my knowledge of PHP is very limited.

    Thank you!


    > Buddypress plugin to use with my Buddyboss plugin

    You cannot use them together.
    Try deactivating all Buddypress and Buddyboss plugins.
    And then try deleting Buddypress.


    I downloaded the Buddypress plugin to use with my Buddyboss plugin but ended up not needing it. After trying to delete I kept getting a deletion failure message. I’m not sure what to do. I should also note that my site isn’t broken from this but I got an email that there was a critical error so I wanted to fix it. I’m on wordpress 5.2 and my site link is:


    > I am using buddyboss platform as plugin

    Please contact BuddyBOSS.
    These are the forums for BuddyPRESS.


    I am trying to hide send-reply functionality for my private group(only for one group), So only the group admin can send private messages to all users, and users can only read in their inbox not more than that.

    I tried various ways but did not get a result.

    I am using buddyboss platform as plugin


    BuddyPress does not include forums.
    Are you also using bbPress? If so, you should post on their support forums.
    If you are using BuddyBOSS, which includes forums, you should contact them.


    The following message is displayed in d”ebug mode:

    Notice: Undefined variable: is_http_auth_req in /home/lceet/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-member-types/includes/buddyboss-plugin-updater.php on line 73

    A solution?
    Many thanks for the help


    Learn how to use var_dump – it shows the output on the screen.

    You are using the BP Profile Search plugin, correct?
    If so, ask the creators of that plugin.
    If not, then you are using BuddyBoss and you should ask them.


    I think I found the reason but not sure how to solve.
    I added the shortcode in a page to see how H5P is working and found out that H5P is using ‘iframe’ method.

    but I beleive that buddyboss is not allowing the iframe on the activity feed (not sure, I might be wrong).

    then do you have any idea how to enable the iframe feature on the activity feed?
    so that possibly h5p shortcode is working.

    Please let me know your thought.

    Thank you so much

    Fábio Roque

    Hi @futureyoon

    Try this

     * Render shortcodes on feed posts
    function enable_shortcode_bp_activity($content) {
        $content = stripslashes($content);
    	return do_shortcode($content);
    add_filter('bp_get_activity_content_body', 'enable_shortcode_bp_activity', 0);

    ps: this was not tested in buddyboss 2.0


    Hi Fabio,

    I happened to come across your post and was trying to use it on buddyboss theme and plugin but not sure why nothing is happening.

    I enabled your code in code snippet and i post a shortcode in activity feed, but nothing shows up…

    Do you have any idea?

    Thank you


    These are the forums for BuddyPress.
    Ask BuddyBoss or the creators of the Invite plugin .


    I’m trying to create a cleaner user experience. I want to auto connect an inviter and invitee, when the invitee accepts an invite to join the site.

    I am using BuddyBoss and Invite Anyone plugin.

    If they get the email, accept the invite, and create an account, asking them to accept the original connection request seems like an extra unneeded step.


    In reply to: LifterLMS conflict


    These are the support forums for BuddyPress – contact BuddyBoss.


    Topic: LifterLMS conflict

    in group forum Third Party Plugins


    I have an issue with LifterLMS and Buddyboss Platform. I have already contact with LifterLMS team and they say that is an issue from Buddyboss side, as you can see in these links:

    Please, I need that this issue will be fixed asap because I have no ability to change the courses tab order in my user’s profiles.

    Buddyboss Platform: 2.0.1
    Wordpress: 5.9.3

    Thank you!
