Member Themes with Subdomain install

  • benny148148


    I have BuddyPress installed in the subdomain: Everything works fine, except when I click on anything regarding a members page, it takes me to, instead of

    It still works somewhat, however all the avatars don’t carry over, and there are several other minor issues.

    My question is: how can I make all the links that go to a members page have the “community” subdomain added to them? If I manually type in “community.” before the member’s domain, it works perfectly (ie. carries over the facebook connect image correctly).

    If you’d like to see the issue firsthand, visit: and click on a members name.

    Goto Site Admin->Blogs and click Edit on your root blog for me.

    Under “Path” what do you have set there?

    Then under Blog options (wp_1_options) under “Siteurl” what do you have set there? And under “Home”?

    I noticed also that you haven’t edited your Member theme’s header.php file yet to match your home theme. Your member theme still wants to direct you to, instead of, which is weird because I see you have a subdomain installation in your WPMU.

    It feels like there’s a few different things going on, so lets check those settings first.

    Remember, is supposed to be the root of your blog, not the root of your BuddyPress install. The root of your BuddyPress install should just be If you install BP in a subdomain, but also enable subdomains for your blog, you would need to have, if that makes sense?



    Thanks for the help! Under “Path” for my root blog, it’s just “/” (without the quotes of course). Uner Blog Options, “Siteurl” shows “”, and “home” has the same thing.

    When you say my Member’s header.php doesn’t match my home theme, are you referring to my BuddyPress home theme (ie. the community subdomain)? How would I match them?

    The BuddyPress install is in the MU plugins, with the Member theme in /wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member, and the BP Home theme in my theme’s directory. Are you saying I can’t have the BuddyPress home theme in the subdomain at all? Everything is working fine, including friend requests, wire posts, etc. It’s just that there’s no “community” before the member pages.

    I’d even consider hard-coding it if that’s an option.

    Thanks again.



    Hmmmmm…now that I look at things a little bit closer, this may be a Facebook Connect issue.

    Take a look at my most recent facebook user. If you look at, you’ll see the facebook avatar is working fine. Now click that user to go to the member page ( ). The image no longer pulls over.

    Now, go to … Now the image works fine.

    This only seems to happen with Facebook Connect users, since all the other members’ avatars (ie. ) seem to pull over to the member theme just fine.

    Very weird.
