[Resolved] BuddyPress Activity page as Homepage

    Hi all,

    I’m using BuddyPress for my website http://www.starry-night.nl.

    Starry-Night.nl is a customised buddyboss theme site with the activity page set as home page. This is also the problem with the wordpress search. WordPress Search only searches the activity page (only that context) and not the entire site/db. Searching from let’s say a wordpress page redirects to the activity wall.

    Prob. a small fix but beyond me.

    Best regards from the Netherlands,

    Marc

    ps: the search is only possible when logged in by default (wp-adminbar).

    Did you check with BuddyBoos maybe they would know better. I did go to search since I don’t know Dutch I searched “Jupiter”. & got sent to activity page than try to show Posts but nothing for the results.

    Maybe look at your widgets for search posts. Also it could be something with you making your home page something other than a static page and/or recent blog posts.

    BuddyBoss are suppose to be great so I would probably ask them.

    Thx for looking Julian. I did check with Buddyboss (they are great indeed). I tested with a none Buddyboss theme/install (wp 2013 en 2014) … same problem. It’s most definitely a Buddypress issue.

    The guys from Buddyboss made a note of my problem, but I won’t hold my breath for this one.

    Can I elevate this problem as a bug?

    Best regards,

    Marc

    @mth75 what other plugins do you have installed.

    You may also want to check out this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-articles/ heard great things about it but haven’t used myself.

    I did a test on a clean wordpress/buddypress/bbpress install, same problem (no plugins except buddy press/bbpress).

    Thx for the tip, i’ve planned to look into this one in new release (parallel to a new buddyboss rel.).

    In the meantime I’ve created a ticket … this is a bug.

    Very nice corporate site btw, we don’t have those vista’s here in the Netherlands.
