Problem with short urls

  • Profile photo of Bruco_mela


    Hi to you all, I’ve just installed BuddyPress and…wow, that’s what I was searching for!

    My only problem caomes is with my provider that doesn’t accept urls like

    redirecting them authomatically to my homepage. I’ve modified in WordPress MU a db table and where the record was http://domain I’ve changed into http://www.domain.

    Still I can see some link in BuddyPress use short URL, how can I modify them? (for example link to user blog admin panel)

    thanks a lot!

    Honestly, I think it is time for a new host.

    I believe buddypress highly recommends using subdomains for member blogs, for example: and if you host doesn’t support that I don’t think it is a solid hosting solution.

    If you are trying out buddypress for a small scale deployment, with just a few friends using it and they don’t need blogs you might be ok.

    There are already a few posts around here of what people are using for hosting, but I have never heard of a paid solution that wouldn’t allow nonwww domains.

    I thought I had this particular issue with 1and1 actually at first also, but it turns out that even though they force me to have “www” in the front of the domain in the control panel, I am still able to override this through WP and .htaccess.
