blogs plugin killed my site is it me or the the subdirectory functions.

  • trcwest


    just simple couple of questions… i have a shared host really cheap one with lunar pages…

    I installed wpmu and realised that the subdomain function would work as i didn’t have access the Apache server and this means i cant ad the wildcard dns thingy.. so subdomains we out…

    so i reinstaled using the sub directory… this worked fine..

    i then tried to instal budypress with teh zip files.. as said in the readme…

    with the blogs one it just gave a a parse syntax php ( or one of those php eror lines on a white page just saying something was wring on a line around 300 i forget exactely..) error that would not let me do

    anything… so i deleted the blogs one and then it worked and i could ad a profile on the admin contol pannel but not on the splash page from register.. it first asked to creat a new blog then the profile so that didnt seem right..

    questions.. does budy press work on sub directories and why was the blogs plugin not working..

    i am trying to create a social site for spots or locations in kenya…

    i just tried again with a perfectly new instalation at

    i get this error. in my browser window

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘=’, expecting ‘)’ in /home/rfmaf0/public_html/bp/wp-content/mu-plugins/bp-blogs/bp-blogs-templatetags.php on line 344

    when i delete the blogs plugin it fixex this..

    what am i doing wrong??



    ihave got it working so far but the strange thing is that it creates a blog instead of a profile and when i click on create a home base it just says…

    You’re logged in already. No need to register again!

    so basically when you register at you go through the sign up well and uit does it nicely but its creating a blog not a user… i am guessing this is due to the fact that i am useing sub directories no subdomains as my server doesnt alow me acces to wildcards.

    plase can som one help its for a major uni project..


    Please use the trunk version of BuddyPress.



    The trunk version is available here:

    At the bottom of that page is a link to download all the files in .zip format. Give that a try on your site and you should have better luck with getting it to work.
