Members page leads to 404 (not for administrators)
I have an issue with buddypress on my WordPress site. I have installed the latest stable version of buddypress and registered the members component with the respective page.
Whenever a user who is not administrator tries to access the members page, a 404 is shown. The same applies to everything beneath this page, such as editing profile. For administrators , everything is fine. I have tried to track the problem down. I have flushed the permalinks, disabled all plugins. When I switched to the default theme, everything works fine as expected. So, I suspect the issue has to be with my theme, enfold.
I fiddled with the capabilites and found that if I add the “edit others pages” capability to a user he is able to access the members page. But this has undesired consequences such as the ability to create drafts for pages and accessing the theme options (why in the world?).
Anyway as this is most likely a theme specific problem, I would like to ask if there are any experiences with such a matter or hints what I could look out for.
