Dead links in ajax responses from searching, replying, etc for School site

  • I am having this problem on every recent WP/BP install I’ve been working on lately. All responses from ajax with links in it provide the wrong URLs (with extra subdirectories). I set up a basic, default, latest WP 3.3.1 / BP There are no other plugins installed.

    When you do a search on:
    for “admin” the result from ajax gives the following link:
    instead of the proper link:
    which is the proper link given during a normal page load of the members page.

    This makes me think this is some kind of server configuration. This is my .htaccess, just the default stuff. Tell me if I can provide any additional information!
    `# BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /courses/2012/spring/test/
    RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /courses/2012/spring/test/index.php [L]

    # END WordPress`

  • I hate to bump-post for attention, but I have also been posting at the WP MUDEV forums for some help with this.

    Phil, who has been helping me debug some, believes this *may* be a bug with BuddyPress being installed in subdirectories. I unfortunately cannot install WP/BP at the root of this server I am working on, but I decided to post this update in case it gives anyone here any more ideas.

    Thank you in advance for any leads or help you can provide.

    Hi, just thought I’d add my thoughts here.

    I tried setting up a test install in a sub-directory ( and navigating to redirected me to so I was kinda struggling even to test this.

    I’m sure there’s actually a logical reason why that redirect happens that I’m just not seeing. Of course, I realised that in Georules case the install is in a lower directory.

    So I just created and I couldn’t replicate the issue…. Kinda unsure where to go from here. Don’t do an awful lot with BP if I’m honest so at the mercy of BuddyPress brains.
