Pages not found

    Please forgive me, I’m an educator trying to get BuddyPress to replicate some of what I used to do with a Ning network, and I’m having some trouble.

    You can view my site at; my regular blog is at

    I am running WP3.1, with Multisite enabled.

    As you can see if you look at my site, none of my links go anywhere – it’s all just “Page not found.” I looked at the information here (, but I’m not sure what exactly I should be changing, and I’m really worried about messing up something for my main, non-BP site.

    Thanks so much to this great community for any help you can give me!

  • Are you running BuddyPress on the non-root site? If so:

    define ( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 117 );

    Will run on site ID 117.

    Because I created it as a network through the WP install and didn’t set it up as a subdomain with my host, it isn’t too clear what’s what when I’m looking at my FileManager.

    I only have one directory each for wp-admin, wp-content, etc. I also only have one wp-config file. That file has the “allow multisite” command in it, but nothing else that seems to pertain to BP; is that where I should insert that line of code, or am I looking for another .php file?

    Also, do you mind if I ask where you got the 117? Theoretically, I’d like to be able to figure this stuff out on my own at some point. :)

    Here’s exactly what I have in my wp-config.php file (everything below the unique authentication key code). Actually examining this I think it’s pretty clear I’m missing something, but I don’t know what:

    * WordPress Database Table prefix.
    * You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique
    * prefix. Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!
    $table_prefix = ‘wp_’;

    * WordPress Localized Language, defaults to English.
    * Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the chosen
    * language must be installed to wp-content/languages. For example, install
    * to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to ‘de’ to enable German
    * language support.
    define (‘WPLANG’, ”);

    define( ‘MULTISITE’, true );
    define( ‘SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL’, true );
    $base = ‘/’;
    define( ‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’ );
    define( ‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’ );
    define( ‘SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1 );
    define( ‘BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1 );

    define( ‘AUTH_SALT’, ‘.~rFFv>Rie|T7C^:Wzl|MdW:1LS{Dr.x+V}U2qrc?Crmhd+Q+sIf7D%#p+$;p<5U' );

    /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    /** WordPress absolute path to the WordPress directory. */
    if ( !defined(‘ABSPATH’) )
    define(‘ABSPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’);

    /** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */
    require_once(ABSPATH . ‘wp-settings.php’);

    define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);
