No Profile Tabs

    As soon as you click username and goes to profile all tabs are gone and were there before the update to 2.4. No way to check anything because tabs are all gone now.

    Just shows activity instead of profile.

    I fixed it. It was the cover photos and I lost the tabs but as soon as I unchecked the cover photos for both members and groups the tabs are there. I don’t what you guys did but I am never going to enable that cover photo feature until it is fixed.

    What theme are you using? We try to be compatible with every theme, but it is hard to account for every single theme that is available out there.

    Does the profile tabs and cover image feature show up when you switch to a WordPress theme like Twenty Sixteen?

    Newsmag one of the most popular themes and it never did that before v2.4. Of course v2.3.5 did not have cover photos either. Even lost tabs on Groups too. I am keeping it disabled.

    I just installed NewsMag and the profile tabs and cover image feature look fine on an unmodified install:

    Again, we cannot account for every single variant of every available theme out there. If you have some CSS knowledge, you’ll have to adjust it yourself.

    It only shows avatar and cover photo space with no tabs and activity on profile page only. Groups is just about the same. No original tabs just home, forum, members. send invites, manage tabs. As long as this plugin has been out since 2008 its still does not work with all themes? I am so tempted to just give up on it. It looks outdated still and the only thing you add is cover photos and it does not even work right.

    The rest of the other plugins that compare and look a heck of a lot better but to get the features of this plugin you have to pay their outrageous prices for extensions. I might just be better off with no community software for social network and just use bbPress only.

    Is that tagdiv? There is two different Newsmag themes. I am using tagdiv.

    Sounds to me that you don’t care if the theme works for it or not. Accounting for pretty much all themes is part of the reason to have the plugin in first place. If I can’t use it with all features then I will just not use it. Pointless to bother with something that is broken.

    NewsMag by TagDiv is a premium theme, which we do not have access to. Please list details when you are posting a support thread next time.

    The version I tested of “NewsMag” is available from the wordpress.org theme repository:

    So basically your not going to do a thing about it? Okay, I will just remove BuddyPress, and thanks for the support I wouldn’t expect. I doubt Tagdiv is going to do a thing about it. Since, I get told that I have to go to theme author to get the styling done for BuddyPress too. I might as well give up on the whole BuddyPress thing. As soon as I am done with this reply, I am removing BuddyPress.

    I’m really sorry to read this thread. I think we’ve done our best to prevent this kind of situation by including some easy ways to deactivate the cover images if the theme you are using haven’t upgraded to support it.

    On september 3Oth, more than a month ago, we’ve posted on our blog to explain to everyone how the Cover Images could impact themes, see https://bpdevel.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/buddypress-2-4-0-will-introduce-cover-images-for-members-groups/

    At the end of this post i’ve insisted on this point :

    If you are a theme designer or the author of a plugin managing Cover images, we recommend that you don’t forget to test that everything works fine for you during the 2.4.0 beta period.

    Then, a month ago, we’ve added a codex page to explain to everyone how to implement cover images for specific themes : https://codex.buddypress.org/themes/buddypress-cover-images/

    Then we published a beta and a release candidate to let people test it, to make sure everything was working fine.

    I understand your frustration, but be sure we’re always trying to do our best. BuddyPress is free, open source and is maintained by volunteers like @r-a-y and me. We’ve been testing as much themes as we could, unfortunately your particular theme wasn’t available for us. I’m convinced the TagDiv team will soon implement the cover images feature into their themes, and if they have any question, i’ll be happy to help them.

    Best wishes.

    Well, I am not Tagdiv and I just use the theme that I bought from them. I did contact them and they provided CSS to fix for the time being until the fix is done in one of their future updates, but there is still one issue that they have not said anything about and is in groups and loading the page showing group after clicking the link, it shows cover photo and avatar fine but right where the group description is the current user avatar really tiny covers over the description, covering up one of the words, so you can’t read it. It is a clickable avatar but just floats right over the description. I uploaded the image to Tagdiv but got no response on that one.

    Otherwise, I got the tabs back with CSS that Tagdiv gave me to put in my custom code section in themepanel. So I can use the cover photos until they implement the fix.
