None of the Buddypress Buttons Work

  • Hello,

    So I’ve using Buddypress with the Default Buddypress theme (both latest versions) and for some reason when you try to post a comment on a status, add a friend, or generally anything to do with a button on Buddypress it just sits there (with the thinking circle spinning forever where applicable).
    Not sure what to do, I’ve disabled all the buddypress plugins and it has made no difference, even uninstalled and reinstalled buddypress.
    Any insight would be appreciated, thanks.

    Here is the site:

    I’m having the same problem on my site. When I try to open any of the tabs on the Activity page (eg. All Members, My Friends etc) nothing happens (apart from the circle spinning).

    However, when you right click on one of the tabs and open them in a new window – that works fine.

    I am also getting the spinning circle when I try and reply to a message (new messages are fine).

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Sounds like you’re having a jQuery conflict causing the AJAX calls to fail. If you’re using other plugins, deactivate them one by one to find it. Also disable any jQuery code you’ve added.



    Many thanks. Looks like it was bbPress Post Toolbar causing the problem. Was preventing PrettyGallery working as well.
    Don’t know anything about jQuery so now seems like a good time to learn!



    Yesterday, with Post Toolbar deactivated, the problem returned. I eventually found that deactivating Front End User, made everything happy again. I reactivated Post Toolbar once more.
    This morning I found it wasn’t working once again, so I deactivated Post Toolbar for a moment and then reactivated it. Everything hunky dory once again.

    What sort of issue would cause this problem to be intermittent in this way?

    Assuming it is a jQuery issue, is this something that can be fixed or is it a case of choosing different plugins?
