Problem with Member Profile URLs giving 404 erros
I’m currently trying to run Buddypress on my website, and I’m having a problem with the URLs that link to user profiles from the Member page, avatars, and displayed usernames. They are all giving a 404 error.
I’m assuming this can be fixed with a function in bp-custom.php but I don’t know php well enough to be able to create one on my own.
My Buddypress page is: thechefsconnection.com/forchefseyesonly
I created the page using one of my theme’s shortcodes (Kleo theme), and a few sidebar widgets. The Members page, user avatars and username links are being rendered as follows:
(using admin for example ) thechefsconnection.com/members/admin
This should display the profile for the user ‘admin’ . From what I understand this is how the links are supposed to be structured by Buddypress, but on my site they are giving a 404 error.
I found that if I append “/profile” to the URL like this: thechefsconnection.com/members/admin/profile then the link works and the profile loads.
Strangely, the main nav menu dropdown link under For Chefs Eyes Only > Profile returns the link with “/profile” in the URL. This was created in Appearance > Menus with the Buddypress widget. Why is it working here and not anywhere else?
I’ve looked through Dashboard > Settings > Buddypress and I can’t find anything to adjust permalinks for member profiles.
So I have two questions:
1. Why is this happening?
2. How do I fix it?
