[Resolved] Error 404 page not found on activity and settings front end

  • vaperooms


    Firstly thanks for the excellence of BuddyPress. I am new to the forums after my install today on a fresh WordPress install.

    My issue is that when I click on links to view certain BuddyPress related areas on my site I get error 404. Could anyone please advise on a solution as I have tried searching forums and with no avail! Many solutions with no fix.

    I have a standard fresh WordPress install (not multi-site) with no other plugins apart from Akismet activated and BuddyPress.

    I have followed all instructions correctly. I am using WordPress 4.0 and BuddyPress 2.1.1 with Klien premium WordPress theme installed.

    I seem to get the errors upon clicking on settings and activity from within front end profiles.

    Activity link is:

    Settings link is:

    Any assistance would be very appreciated.

    Right then folks just a little heads up to my now resolved issue.

    I had initially installed WordPress through my hosting cPanel Softaculous script installer. This appeared to have caused the issues.

    After reading the documentation and other forum posts it had become clear instead of using my hosting self install script I should download WordPress manually and install manually too. The same should be done with BuddyPress.

    I can’t answer as to what causes this through using a self install script but I can confirm that it fully resolved it.

    So yes OK I had to do a complete re-installation but at least my site was a fresh install in the first place to start again and repair.

    Encountering this issue has given me the stance that I will manually install in future as opposed to cPanel self installation.

    Thanks for an excellent BuddyPress and I hope I can become a valued member of these forums and BuddyPress!
