I want buddypress to prove it
Wow, that is pretty harsh! BuddyPress is no scam, it is free software built by an amazing development team and they also give free support. If your upset because you cant figure out something then ask the community. The community is made of volunteers that are not compensated so please keep that in mind. You can’t come on here and demand support and expect a volunteer to answer you immediately because they do this on their free time and have lives and responsibilities of their own that take precedence over the forums. Give your thread 24 hours then if no one reply’s you can politely bump it. I have made many buddypress sites and I am not affiliated in any way with the Dev team or moderation team and I can assure you it is the real deal. I do volunteer and help here when I can as a way of paying the help I have received forward. 🙂
I failed to mention BuddyPress is dependent on WordPress. You can’t use BuddyPress without having an installation of WordPress. BuddyPress is a social networking/niche community plugin for WordPress. 🙂
Do you really think that I was complaining about buddypress not knowing it works with wordpress. funny. check my website http://www.addisconnect.com when you go to register it never work. you can register if i deactivate buddypress. all i ask is for someone to show me a website that is core scrip build from wordpress + buddypress. let see it please, give me link. I am not the only one complaining about buddypress not working the intire web is. google it, may be those Voltaire work for Facebook not for us. if you put something out there for people to use it then make sure it work, or don’t put it out there and give us a runaround. I use themes, they out there they work, I use plugins they out there and they work, but when it comes to buddypress it never does and it doesn’t seem it did for anyone since everyone is complaining.
don’t use the you are Voltaire excuse for your work failing.
Have you considered it is a theme or plugin other than BuddyPress causing the issue? I have had this happen to me before and I had to narrow it down by using a process of elimination by reverting to the bp-default theme or twenty twelve and deactivating each plugin one by one and testing registration against it every time until I found the culprit. It was tedious but with all the 3rd party themes and plugins out there that unfortunately introduce bad code then it is a necessary evil. You can’t expect the Dev team to work around all your favorite plugins or themes. I do not put my plugins on the Repo because I personally don’t feel my coding practices are worthy but unfortunately there are developers that release plugins to the Repo just because they want notoriety and in reality they have have little skill and bad coding practices. Also have you considered that you have a crappy host. BP needs more resources than most free or cheap shared hosting solutions won’t supply. What did you actually think Facebook runs off a server 2.2 ghz processor with 1gb ram and a 250gb hard drive lol? Before you blame BuddyPress then do your homework and check the themes and plugins your using. Also learn some respect because nobody owes you nothing!
apparently you spend a good amount of time explaining why it wouldn’t work but you have no prove it work for you. all I ask was a link to a website that is made of wp and bpress. If I sound disrespect full I am sorry, but everyone voice show that buddypress fail when it comes to the truth. I will work on a good article show how bad buddypres is and save peoples time. enough time trying to work with something I though was legit, but know I know more, I will let every one know about it. we are on more advance time today, no reason for broken and sold script to float around.
I don’t have to prove anything to you I am trying to assist you. I am not the one complaining because your not using the advice given. I have had many BuddyPress sites ranging from BP 1.2 through 1.7.2 and it works great. The problem is when you have a fresh install of WP and BP then every time you install and activate a new plugin then test it against your registration. I am sorry if this sounds tedious and insensitive but I do not feel sorry for users who use out of date plugins and install 30 to 40 plugins without testing against registration only to find in the thick of it all one of those plugins conflicted with the registration and then they have to back peddle to find what they would have found if they had tested each plugin as they activated it against the registration. That is not very responsible, so do your part because the Development team can only do but so much.
Furthermore BP is not a “broken or sold script” if you have paid for this software then you have been had by unscrupulous people. BP has bugs as any software including premium software has and the Development team does their best to resolve these bugs. Have you even searched the open trac tickets, or opened a new trac ticket if you have found a new bug? If you haven’t then you have given away your right to complain because your not reporting bugs which is highly encouraged by the community and by the Development team. As far as you writing an article trying to slander BuddyPress and convince people it is not legitimate, then I am afraid It just makes you look incompetent because you failed to follow pretty standard practices. @hnla @mercime I think this thread is not conducive to anything constructive at this point unless you would like to chime in of course, I request this topic be locked.
@asnakea3 @bphelp a good example of BuddyPress working with a WordPress theme is http://testbp.org It’s using the upcoming Twenty Thirteen theme (availabe in WP 3.6 beta 3).
Other examples of BP-powered sites:
I do empathize with your frustration, but this is not the way to go about getting help with your installation issues.
@asnakea3 At this stage, I’d recommend deactivating all plugins except BuddyPress and changing to BP Default theme or the Twenty Twelve theme. Clear cache and check registration.
