Could not Save Basic Settings

    I tried this plug in last night but I could not ave the settings except on the last page for this plugin, on my dashboard.

    The pages I set up, except for the titles, were 100 percet invisible.

    My WordPress tells me, on top of the details page, that this plugin has NOT been requested with my updated WordPress.

    I wanted to keep this plugin, and add a forum to my site but I can’t find any proper forum software.

    My WordPress version is the most updated: 4.4

    My website URL: http://oneladyfights4life.com

    I apologize for this double post, as I forgot to mark that I forgot to check that I wanted to get replies by email and to check that option I had to double-post, and I cannot delete this second post.

    I’m using the 2.4.2 verson of this plug-in.

    I see that my post has been bumped down so it is less likely to be even seen.

    @ldesherl I just see an error on your home page right now with the TGM plugin. Deactivate all plugins except BuddyPress. Change to a WP Default Twenty-* theme then activate BuddyPress.

    P.S. For forums, install bbPress which works very well with BuddyPress

    Thank you.

    I did those things but Buddypress, unfortunately, seems to be working the same. I have one of those default themes installed.

    @ldesherl If you’re not seeing the button to save settings to associate Pages with BP components, then you might need to delete BuddyPress then re-install BuddyPress.

    As for the content of the BuddyPress pages not showing up: I suspect it’s a plugin conflict, specifically with the Shareaholic share buttons and possibly the JetPack Like Button. Deactivate the Shareaholic first and check if the issue is resolved.

    EDIT – Also, if you’ve been deleting and re-installing BuddyPress through wp-admin Plugins panel, try deleting then uploading the BuddyPress plugin folder via control panel or FTP.

    I deactivated Shareaholic. I deactivated Jetpack “like.” I deactivated Buddypress and then reactivated it. All to no avail. The “Save Settings” option still is not there. Period.

    @ldesherl I think it might help if you could leave that link above switched to a WP default theme and with all plugins deactivated, just while you’re seeking help for this issue, as things stand I see no sight of BuddyPress or bbPress running, and the theme is a custom one with a lot of plugins running. Buddypress should default to using a series of pages that it will create, your ‘Activity’ example is named with a custom title, you also seem to have a lot of trashed pages as the members page slug has ‘-7’ added suggesting 6 other copies of a page named ‘members’ try deleting those.

    hi @ldesherl,

    sorry to jump in, i see some weird path on your site.
    E.g. http://oneladyfights4life.com/members-7/ or activity-streams-2/ BP is looking for “members”, not members-2. This happens mostly when a page is in trash and the same page name is used again.

    To be clear, you create a page called “member”. Then you decided to trash it and recreate a page called “member”. The problem is that WP knows now about 2 “member” page (one as page, the other as trashed) and add automatically -2 to the second page permalink.

    A page in trash is not destroyed, but simply deactivated. As long as you don’t clear the trash you can restore such a page.

    -7 and -2 means you created at least seven members and 2 activity pages.

    Go to Pages adminsitration and check any of BuddyPress page permalink. These slugs would be better without any number at the end. Edit the page and correct the permalink which is right under the page title.
    You should have http://oneladyfights4life.com/members/

    See also in page trash if you have similar pages in it. If yes delete them definitely.

    Once done, go to BP page settings and ensure all BP component have the correct page associated.
    Finally, go to permalinks settings and save that page. With a little luck, you will get BP working now.

    I have Twenty-Sixteen running now and I hope I will get this issue fixed; I really want a forum.

    I tried al this but I am not allowed to change my permalinks at all. I tried it over and over. I deleted Buddypress and added it back and reactivated it. No difference. No options to save page settings. I guess I’m not going to pursue getting a forum on my site. I guess it may have something to do with my web host. Thank you for trying to help but I cannot resolve this no matter what I try.

    @danbp thumbs up! 🙂

    @ldesherl You do not need to install BuddyPress in order to get a forum. You only need to install bbPress forums plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress/ which works perfectly without BuddyPress.

    For anyone who is looking for the solution for not being able to save buddypress settings.

    Various plugins cause issues with adding various extra css in the admin area.

    in my case there was a css file from a Codecanyon Woozone plugin which hid the P tags in the buddypress options pages

    use firebug and find the bottom div that cotnains the submit button and disable any css that is hiding it and you can click the submit button.

    after you have done that you might want to tell the plugin developer that caused the issue about it.

    TLDR the button is there its probably just hidden. use firebug or chrome tools to unhide it and click save.
