Members activity feeds redirecting to homepage after BP 1.2.5 update and WP 3.2.1 update

    After going through one heck of a mess after the update of WP 3.2.1, I have finally got my site back up and running and followed the instructions on how to update BuddyPress 1.2.5. I updated and everything seems functional but when you go to the activity stream ( it goes to the main activity screen where it shows the user who’s logged in and if you click on the “avatar” or “username” it should redirect you to your profile ( or whatever) but mine doesn’t do that any more — instead it redirects to the homepage at

    If I hover over the avatars, I can see that they coded to go to the correct locations of /members/username but instead ALL of the users redirect to the homepage at

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Ok, yeah… I don’t want to redirect the logged in users homepage to their activity stream. I still want them to go to the site’s homepage. I just want the links to work correctly… and they DID prior to the WP/BP update yesterday.

    Any more ideas?

    Thanks again for all the help.

    This is also specific to BuddyPress… I have an updates status bar at the bottom of my website that scrolls through the recent updates to the website (posts, pb activity, comments, etc) and all the links work from that bar (if there is a new posts, you can clik, and it takes you to the post’s page)… except for BuddyPress links, you click to view the recent update and it, once again, redirects you to the homepage.

    Is there anyone that has any other ideas about this? I still cannot get it fixed, it doesn’t happen with anything other than BuddyPress, I am using BP for a major part of my website that is due to launch by the end of this year. I would really like to get this working…

    Please help?

    This issue has been verified, it is an issue with a BuddyPress plugin. Since this thread is not being checked back up on — I will post a new thread to alert the community of the issue.
