BuddyPress Geo

  • sameast


    Hi everyone

    Im having real problems getting this plugin to function properly i am new to wordpress plugin development so im just starting to get my head into action hooks and filters.

    After installing the plugin and adding the following as the plugin install notes suggest.

    Add a textbox field called Latitude to the same group as the location field

    Add a textbox field called Longitude to the same group as the location field

    I then get the plugin to show on the main page under a menu item of Geo as show below.

    I have added various location to some dummy members profiles and you can search say canada and you can see in the address bar that it seems to be working out the Latitude and Longitude as far as i know but it can never find any members.

    All my main big problem is the plugin admin menu after install a menu appears saying Global Search Setting every time i clicked this it did a redirect and took me back to the dashboard page with this appended to the url.


    I search forums about this and found that the problem is the add_action fucntion in the plugin it is current set like this after install at the bottom of the code.

    add_action( ‘wp’, ‘bp_geo_wp’ );

    add_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘bp_geo_head’ );

    add_action( ‘admin_head’, ‘bp_geo_admin_head’ );

    add_action( ‘admin_init’, ‘bp_geo_admin_init’ );

    add_action( ‘xprofile_updated_profile’, ‘bp_geo_updated_profile’ );

    register_activation_hook( __FILE__, ‘bp_geo_check_install’ );

    If i change the: add_action( ‘admin_head’, ‘bp_geo_admin_head’ );

    To this: add_action( ‘admin_menu’, ‘bp_geo_admin_head’ );

    This solves the problem to a degree but i have another one i no longer get the:

    I know after click the menu get this in the url:

    But it just shows a blank page anyone else struggled with this, i would really like some help or input ive hit a wall.

    I to am having this issue, hopefully “SOMEONE” can assist us both in this issue….



    I had a look at there site, they aren’t offering support for Buddypress GEO it seems, posts don’t get feedback..

    “We haven’t had time to work on BuddyPress GEO for some time. It was a plugin that was developed for some work with Automattic about six months ago, but we haven’t really looked at it since then. Unfortunately right now WPtouch and WordTwit are taking all our resources. I did a quick update yesterday to make it work with the new version of BuddyPress, but haven’t done any work on it since the original code. “
    1 month ago

    So.. anyone willing to take a look at continuing with the plug-in. I think its a great idea and would love to integrate it into my site.



    I would donate towards this effort.
