    Can you go to the page if you change the permalink to something else?

    Yes. If you make the permalink in an initial cap

    Redirect or building of BP pages doesn’t work right when using capatalized letters inside the slug.
    After the pagetitel is printed the page breaks.
    Happens with all BP slugs.

    Example

    Joost…do you see? We did not make those changes they just POODF! magically appeared thanks to buddypress. Nothing we did. It is a bug.

    I,m am very sorry but… You did make those changes somehow, wordpress and buddypress only outputs lowercase slugs.

    You are not typing internet adresses directly into your browser? Those links in your chase are generated by your theme? Did you try a different theme? Did you try to change the page slug?

    I have spent 20 hours on tech support to figure this out.

    My host tech support at WP Engine went through and we tested every plugin and isolated that the capitalization appears only when buddypress plug in is activate.

    As I wrote in my original post “I am using wp 4.5.2 and the ispirit 1.1.2 and it replicates with the
    standard themes. It happens in safari, chrome and on iphone browser.”

    When I stay standard themes I mean the three that come with the wp install.

    We (wpengine and I) did redirects so that when the bp system generates the odd capitalization issue it redirects to the page with the caps.

    Go here and watch it redirect http://www.championcollegeservices.com/register to http://www.championcollegeservices.com/Register

    We did that redirect as a temporary solution so that people could at least sign on.

    The bug needs to be found and fixed.

    Your theme is outputting those links.

    Is there a moderator who can please respond to this post? The participant who is responding is not understanding the issue. I need someone on the bp internal team please.
