The first part is to be expected, because BuddyPress requires permalinks to be set to something custom. When you do, do you get any problems with normal Page permalinks redirecting? What’s in your .htaccess?
My problem is similar Paul…my normal page permalinks seem to be working fine.
I have a WP 3.3 setup using BP 1.5.2 in a mulitsite ENABLED platform. Sometimes the links work properly…but in other areas of the network, links don’t. NAMELY, the URLs to Member Profiles don’t link properly from the MAIN site.
Background – the ‘main’ site in our multisite platform is called “networkit.com”. One of our subsites is “tvhra” and found at http://www.networkit.com/tvhra
Overall, links seem to work fine within the TVHRA site when linking to member profiles, activity, forum topics, etc….all good.
Note that in the main site, all BP components are under parent page “community’, but in the subsite, the BP components are under parent page “our-community”…don’t think that’s the problem, but thought I’d point it out.
ACTIONS TAKEN THUS FAR TO DIAGNOSE:
I’ve already deactivated all plug-ins on the MAIN Network Admin panel, and in the NETWORKIT.COM panel AND in the TVHRA panel. Then deactivated BP. Reactivated just BP and still have the same persistent problem. UUGGGHH.
The intellect of this community is far above mine…..any thoughts on why this is acting this way and what I need to do to fix the problem?
FINAL NOTE: I dd see a thread on this started about 1.5 years ago, with 30+ posts…and no real evident answer…so, I’m trying again fresh.
Thanks for your help Paul and Brian… here’s my htaccess:
# Server root folder www .htaccess
# This file provides server security limiting access to the localhost only.
# Comment next four lines to deactivate. (Allows external access)
#Deny from all
#Allow from 127.0.0.1
#Allow from ::1
# To allow execution of cgi scripts in this directory uncomment next two lines.
AddHandler cgi-script .pl .cgi
Options +ExecCGI +FollowSymLinks
# Activate this section to use the Private Server Feature!
# Defaults: Username – root; Password – root
# Note AuthUserFile: File path is relative to server root
# To lock server, uncomment the next 4 lines. (A name and password is required)
#AuthName “Uniform Server – Server Access”
# BEGIN WordPress
# END WordPress
Wordpress is 3.3.1, BuddyPress is 188.8.131.52 and Dynamic Widgets is 1.4.2 which is out of date (latest is 1.5) however the list of fixes doesn’t include anything that seems to be related to this problem.
