Group creation settings blank

    @daveodea

    Hi,

    I have fresh install of Wp 4.0 and newest BuddyPress.
    When on front end, i go to create a group;

    1) I enter group name and description;
    2) I press continue and i am faced with blank under the settings tabs, i can see the setting names such as settings, avatar, invites etc but nothing below. (see screenshots attached)
    3) If i press next step, i am faced with a Wp error page asking: “Are you sure you want to do this?”

    The groups do get created though, and can be seen in groups list page.

    Please see screenshots attached.

    P.s. I have tried with deaulft twenty “” theme, and disabling ALL plugins – no change.
    Thanks in advance,
    Dave

    Just be clear – you have Group Creation – all users selected on
    /wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-settings

    When you try to create a group, are you logged in an admin or some other role?
    Try both.

    >I have tried with deaulft twenty ??? theme, and disabling ALL plugins – no change.
    Do you have any code in plugins/bp-custom.php ?

    >2) I press continue and i am faced with blank under the settings tab
    Do a view source on the page and see it the form is there but not visible for some reason.

    Hi,

    Yes creation is enabled for all users.

    > Same problem for when logged in as subscriber role.

    > i don’t see a plugins/bp-custom.php ?

    > i viewed the source and can see the form:

     [edited for length]
        <div class=”entry-content”>
        <div id=”buddypress”>
        <form action=”http://csuni.org/home/groups/create/step/group-settings/” method=”post” id=”create-group-form” class=”standard-form” enctype=”multipart/form-data”>
        <div class=”item-list-tabs no-ajax” id=”group-create-tabs” role=”navigation”>
    
            1. Details
    
            <li class=”current”><span>2. Settings</span>
            <span>3. Forum</span>
            <span>4. Avatar</span>
            <span>5. Invites</span>
    
        </div>
        <div class=”item-body” id=”group-create-body”>
        <div class=”submit” id=”previous-next”>
        <input type=”button” value=”Back to Previous Step” id=”group-creation-previous” name=”previous” onclick=”location.href=’http://csuni.org/home/groups/create/step/group-details'”/>
        <input type=”submit” value=”Next Step” id=”group-creation-next” name=”save”/>
        </div>
        <input type=”hidden” name=”group_id” id=”group_id” value=”0″/>
        </div>
        </form>

    I suspect a theme issue.
    [ I cannot recreate this issue with WP 4, BP 2.1, standard WP theme ]

    You’re using BuddyBoss theme – your issue is best addressed to them.

    Some hints:
    Looking at the page source you provided, several things are missing.
    No ul tags, li is opened but not closed, etc.
    The form appears but the fields do not.

    This is how the first step form fields should appear – compare it to yours.

    <div class="item-list-tabs no-ajax" id="group-create-tabs" role="navigation">
    		
    	<ul>
    			
    	<li class="current"><a href=".../groups/create/step/group-details/">1. Details</a></li>
    	<li><span>2. Settings</span></li>
    	<li><span>3. Photo</span></li>
    	<li><span>4. Invites</span></li>
    	
    	</ul>
    </div>

    Hi, thanks

    But..
    No the issue persists when i use any theme, even default twenty fourteen.
    BuddyBoss does not edit the group creation page.

    How could i rectify the problem above? which file should i re-upload?

    buddypress\bp-templates\bp-legacy\buddypress\groups\create.php

    I thrawled the internet for the past two days looking for a solution to this – and i looked really hard!
    Eventually after reading up on a server-side caching system know as Varnish which is enabled by default on my VPS host(Bluehost), i discovered that it some buddypress functionality as mentioned above.

    Hello!!! I am having the exact same problem. Is there anyway to get around or disable Varnish on Bluehost in order to fix the group creation problem?

    open a chat with support, ask them to temporarily disable Varnish.

    See if the problem persists, if it does, tell them to permanently disable it.

    Thank you for the advice.
    They disabled it and now buddypress groups worked perfectly!!!
