Group Invite Accept/Reject Buttons Don’t Work – on Windows Server

  • I’m troubleshooting some conflicts, and can’t figure this one out. All of the other BP AJAX buttons work— Request Friendship, Reply to an activity stream post, Cancel Friendship, the order switching buttons in the Members and Group widgets work— but the Accept/Reject buttons on a member’s Groups>Invitations page dumps to a “Are you sure you want to do that—Try again” WP failure page. I thought it could be a nonce or AJAX problem, but haven’t solved it. I’ve deactivated every plugin except BP & BP Template Pack, and it still doesn’t work. I should also mention that it works fine on my MAMP install, but not on the web server. Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Oh, and it also fails if I use the BP Default theme, not just my custom theme.

    No ideas? One other thing doesn’t work: activation. Could these be redirect failures?



    BP/WP versions?
    Linux or Windows hosting?
    New install or recently upgraded?
    How did you set up your install online, via DB import of data from MAMP?

    Hi @mercime

    Thanks for your reply.

    Latest versions of BP/WP (3.3.1/ The problem install is Windows hosted (MAMP install is Linux, of course). New install. I set the db up on the server fresh, and only imported posts to it, not settings. As part of troubleshooting, I imported the server install db into an empty MAMP install, and everything worked fine. It only seems to fail on the Windows server.





    @dcavins sorry, have never used a Windows server for any WP/BP installation. Perhaps someone with Windows server experience can help you out. Note: Added – “Windows Server” to this Topic’s title for clarity.

    @mercime It’s been a little frustrating because everything works perfectly in MAMP and on my testing server (Linux), then there are problems on the production server. I think the problem is in the redirect module, but I don’t know the first thing about fixing that kind of problem on IIS. Thanks for your reply.

    Can you create WordPress Pages ok? What do your permalinks for those look like? Can you create BuddyPress groups?

    @djpaul WP pages are fine ( look like /members ). Group creation is fine ( /groups/(group name)/ )
    Accept group invitation links look like `/members/(member name)/groups/invites/accept/4(this is the correct id for the group I’m trying to join)?_wpnonce=(nonce removed by me because it seems like bad security to share?)`
    Working local version link looks like `/members/(member name)/groups/invites/accept/4(correct id)?_wpnonce=(hidden)`
    They seem to be identical, but MAMP knows how to handle it where IIS fails.

    Thanks for any advice you can give.



    @dcavins Hey did you get a solution? I have exactly the same problem on a Linux server (RedHat).
    Latest wordpress and buddypress versions, default theme… Looked all over the internet…



    Please help! :)
