problem with subdirectory paths on new install (WPMU + BP)
I am trying to set up a new installation of WPMU+BP+LDAP for our corporate blog (internal, not connected to internet). WPMU+LDAP seems to work fine. It’s set up so that http(s)/blogs/ or blogs.corp.lan resolve to the main blog, Corp Blog. Users’ accounts and blogs are automatically created when they first login, so that each user’s blog is located at blogs.corp.lan/user/. That seems to work great.
When I installed BP today, I downloaded the BP zip file, and uploaded it from the admin login from WPMU. That placed the plugin in the wp-content/plugins directory. Should it have placed the plugin in the wp-contents/mu-plugins directory?
I installed BP today, and it appears to work, but not well. If I login and go to my blog (blogs.corp.lan/user/), click on my avatar (to blogs.corp.lan/members/user/), then click on Blogs (blogs.corp.lan/members/user/blogs), then click on my blog, “user’s blog” (back to blogs/corp.lan/user/), then… none of the Activity, Members, Groups, Forums, or Blogs tabs at the top work (they point to /blogs.corp.lan/user/activity, /blogs.corp.lan/user/members, etc.). They all result in Page Not Found pages with the BuddyPress theme. The Home tab points to /blogs.corp.lan/user/.
However, if I then click on the avatar for my user, it takes me to /blogs.corp.lan/members/user/. At this point, Home points to /blogs.corp.lan. The Activity/Members/Groups/Forums/Blogs tabs point to /blogs.corp.lan/activity, … etc.
This is very confusing, I have a hard time describing the problem.
