BP installed, but “groups” “login” “create account” tabs/links give error message; plus other concer

  • hi guys.. just installed buddypress to this new site am building, but i can’t seem to get the “groups” page and profiles running. when i click on the nav menu tab, it gives an error message. when i look through profiles, there seems to be no way one can create groups. what must i do then? on the right sidebar, the “create a new account” link doesnt work, it only gives error message. same is true when one uses the sign in link near the header. i also wonder how a user starts making/posting blogs after making an account. I already set new users to be “authors”, but when i look from the profiles, there is no button or link there that i can find where one clicks to start making/posting a blog. please help me on these concerns. thanks. try visiting my new site (empty) to see how these concerns appear.

    I installed this BP Default 1.5.5 on WP 3.3.1, using Mac/Linux hosting on a single WP.

    @gospelcast looks like you’ve fixed your profiles issue

    As for the groups page,
    – check if groups directory and files were uploaded within wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/
    – also go to dashboard menu BuddyPress > Components and double-check if you have not disabled groups component. Re-Save page if you have activated groups component.
    – go to BuddyPress > Pages and double-check if you have a Page assigned to your Groups. Re-Save Pages if you have selected Page for Groups.
    – go to Settings > Permalinks and Re-Save permalink structure.
    – for extra measure, re-upload BuddyPress plugin into plugins folder

    @mercime thanks for the response.. would you be willing to do these suggested helps for me? im not really much of a techy guy you see. i am willing to share with you my login info if only you would help me on this concern. connect with me through facebook chat if this is safe to do then, am online now at

    @gospelcast Curious why groups link is going to the webhost’s error page. Deactivate all plugins except BuddyPress. Also.check dashboard menu BuddyPress > Pages if your Groups is associated with a Page selected then click save.

    Although naturally it’s Mercims decision to help in any way she would like, please bear in mind that this is a volunteer help and support forum, and asking for people to do work for free is sometimes asking a bit too much :)
