BuddyPress issue since upgrading WordPress

  • ben_cahoona


    Last year, we built a site using BuddyPress:

    The issues started when we upgraded WordPress from 2.x to 3.3.1. We can’t roll back WordPress because the upgrade modified the database. Since this WordPress upgrade…

    1. We have lost the ability as administrators to delete any messages. All delete buttons have disappeared.

    2. We have lost the email notification settings so no one is getting any alerts in their in their boxes of new posts.

    3. We are unable to view any replies to posts. For example in the For Sale & Wanted group a post has been added about T-shirts for sale. Someone in the club has written a reply but it is not visible. Old post replies have also disappeared.

    4.The ‘Search these’ text has come out of the search box in the top right hand corner of the website

    Has anyone else encountered such problems? Does anyone have any ideas as to how we may resolve this problem.

    Any help massively appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    You’ll probably need to upgrade your BuddyPress version for compatibility with the latest version of WordPress.

    Unfortunately, a number of look / feel aspects typically change when you upgrade BuddyPress (particularly coming from a relatively old version). It often requires developer support to upgrade and retain your site’s design.

    Some questions that will help you get further support:

    What version of BuddyPress are you on / were you on previously?

    Which ‘off the shelf’ theme (if any) are you using?

    If bespoke theme – is it a child of another theme – which version?
