Members page not functioning
I seem to have a few problems on the members page.
1- trying to move beyond the first page of results generates a page error, and I don’t get the next page
2- ‘order by’ only works if I select a sort method, then refresh the page. Otherwise I get a page error.
3- search for a user doesn’t work either
I’m using WordPress 3.3.1, BuddyPress 1.5.4, bp-corporate theme.
Is the theme you’re using updated for BP 1.5.5? Change to bp-default theme and issue should be corrected.
But I’m running BP v 1.5.4.
Speaking of which, I changed my theme to ‘BuddyPress Default 1.5.4’ (to match my BP version) and the problem was still there. Page errors on everything I tried to do in terms of interacting with the members page- next page results, sorting, searching, etc.
I’m a little reluctant to upgrade to 1.5.5- the upgrade to 1.5.4 changed enough things to set me back a week or 2 with features I had to account for, and how it affected plugins that were already working. Speaking of which, any updates on the bbpress integration beyond group forums? (ie have you guys had any luck with getting sitewide forums working yet?)
If necessary, I’ll do the upgrade, but hoping you understand my reservations.

Windows or Linux? Single WP or WP Multisite? Where is your WP/BP installed? Domain root or subdirectory or subdomain? if the two latter ones – make sure the subdir and subdom are not named the same as a BP component. e.g. groups.example.com and example.com/groups are no-no’s
== ie have you guys had any luck with getting sitewide forums working yet? ==
We’ve got both forums working together ever since BP 1.5 https://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/installing-group-and-sitewide-forums/
Linux. Single WP. WP/BP is installed on the domain root.
As for forums, I had a standing question about that a month or so ago since sitewide wouldn’t work (groups were beautiful though- c’est la vie)- I was told by Paul (if memory serves) that sitewide forums was a known issue that was expected to be sorted out by BP 1.6 with the inclusion of bbpress 2.0 or something along those lines.

Deactivate plugins esp. membership plugins and re-upload BuddyPress then activate bp-default theme.
== that sitewide forums was a known issue that was expected to be sorted out by BP 1.6 =
There have been some who posted in our forums about issues with getting both working at the same time. Some have been resolved by reinstalling WP manually instead of using webhost script to install WP. Many have been resolved by changing the Archive base slug of Sitewide Forums to avoid slug conflict with Group forums, etc. then adding the bbPress shortcode/s.
As for BP 1.6, it’s in the roadmap to migrate existing Group Forums into Sitewide Forums.
Okay. deactivating everything and re-uploading BuddyPress and activating bp-default cleared out the basic problems so that it worked as expected. Then I found 2 things that individually break the Members pages. One is the BP Corporate theme (MAJOR part of even considering building the site in the first place). The other is the plugin for “Nivo Slider for WordPress” which is killing me since this was one of the best and brightest plugins on the site for the client.
“Nivo Slider for WordPress” is compatible up to WP 3.2.1 so might as well find other Nivo plugin.
As for BP Corporate theme, it probably needs to be upgraded. If you’re adventurous:
a. backup your BP Corporate Theme
b. Install/activate Theme Check plugin and when you check the theme, you might find issues which might include instructions on how to resolve such.
c. After b) Install/activate Log Deprecated Notices plugin. Go to front end and click on a few links. Then go to wp-admin Tools > Deprecated Notices and check issues in theme, if any.
Whew. Upgrading to 1.4.4 of the bp corporate theme fixed a few things and broke a few others- but the broken things are tenable. The community navigation and sublinks for the buddypress designed pages went away, but can be manually added back into the navigation (actually better behavior). The upgrade also fixed the older problem I had with the logged in user name (where it was displaying the entire directory structure leading up the active user’s name). I need to go back and fix a few things, but the main part is, the members page is working again! *Snoopy dance* Also, the bbpress forums look MUCH nicer- once I get things worked out, I’ll try and tackle the sitewide forums for BP again. Only issue left is the Nivo slider. No good options out there unfortunately. ‘Easy Nivo Slider’ simply didn’t work (at all). ‘Simple Nivo Slider’ works, but requires you to post each and every image for the slider as a featured image within blog entries- not very practical to have a blog category of nothing but images- that will confuse users. And the OIK Nivo Slider is needlessly complex and interdependent on about a dozen different plugins of varying version levels. Last but not least is the dev7 Nivo Slider that is paid to access, but they openly admit it won’t work with deluxe themes (which bp corporate is if I’m not mistaken). Sooooooooooooo close.
Thanks so much for your assistance mercime.
