BuddyPress Admin Bar Gone

  • The BuddyPress admin bar is not showing on my website, but it does show when I log into the WordPress dashboard. I haven’t disabled the bar, and I deactivated all my plugins (apart from BP) to see if that was the problem, but I had no luck there.
    Also, whenever I add the wp_footer call to my footer, I get a long list of all the pages on the site. Is there any way of getting my BP AdminBar back up on the website? Thanks.

    @JamieWade adding “ to a theme’s footer.php file just before closing shouldn’t bring out a long list of pages in front end (you need “ or pages_menu etc. for that to happen).

    What theme are you using?

    Thanks I will try this. I am using the BP-Default Theme. Take a look at the site here.

    It appears that wherever I place on the footer.php file it brings up a list of the links?



    1. If you’re using the bp-default theme, the wp_footer call is already in the theme.

    2. Recommend that you create a child theme of bp-default theme so that your modifications won’t get overwritten when you upgrade BuddyPress

    EDIT –
    3. BP Sliding login panel. If I’m not mistaken, that’s supposed to replace the BP Admin Bar in the front end. Deactivate that plugin and you’ll see the BP Admin Bar.

    I put the slide in bar there because the BP one had disappeared. Also, I have customised my footer to have links like “Support” and “Advertise” I will try out what you said, thanks :-)

    @mercime Ok I made the child theme, what do I do now? Also, I added define(‘BP_DISABLE_ADMIN_BAR’, false); to my wp-config.php file, and a blank grey space comes at the top of the page where the admin bar should be, could this suggest problems with the coding?



    @JamieWade since you’re going to allow BP Admin Bar, you don’t need `define(‘BP_DISABLE_ADMIN_BAR’, false); ` in wp-config.php at all.

    I see that you tried to resolve this issue with @pcwriter before who gave good troubleshooting tips. Another thing comes to mind, if you installed BP via auto install, re-upload BuddyPress manually via FTP, cpanel, etc. just might be missing some files. Make sure that all plugins are deactivated except BuddyPress.

    If that doesn’t work, need your site URL.

    @mercime Yes I was talking to PCWriter about this issue. The strange thing is, the admin bar displayed once the site was firts set up, and was there for about a week then it went? I used Softaculous on cPanel to install WordPress to my site, then I downloaded the BuddyPress plug in from the WordPress admin. Here is the website in question.

    @JamieWade, did you change something in footer ? When i edit the footer in fishbook theme , the admin bar disappears. Does anyone knows how to solve it ?
