[Resolved] Add Friend/Join Group links not showing and option to setup forums up not showing

    @sesaconsulting

    I have installed the buddypress plugin at http://www.imastormchaser.info with a custom theme (dreamplace) that I made compatible using the BP Template Pack plugin.

    I am running wp 3.1.1 and bp 1.2.8 and it is running on a Dreamhost server.

    I am currently dealing with 3 issues:

    1. There is no create group link available anywhere. I can get to it by typing in the url manuall y http://www.imastormchaser.info/groups/
    2. When logged in as a user, there is no link to add a friend. For instance as an admin, when I click on the friends link, it takes me to my friends overview page and I see a link for “My Friends” and “Requests” but no link to add a friend. I feel like i have followed every possible link but cannot find it anywhere.
    3. Under teh BuddyPress menu in my WP admin dashboard there is no “Forums” setup option.

    I have been driving myself crazy with this for hours. I have read other threads on tehse issues and even tried remedies listed there to no avail. I have even tried switching to a BP compatible theme and am still facing the same problem.

    I would appreciate any help I can get with thie matter.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. By default you create a group from the link at the Groups Directory header “Create Group” which generates this URL to take you through the process

    2. The “Add Friend” link is found in any member’s header usually under or beside the member’s avatar.

    3. You cannot find dashboard > BuddyPress > Forums Setup on your single WP site?

    Further testing – Deactivate BP Template Pack plugin and change theme to bp-default theme to isolate the problem.

    @mercime. Thanks so much for your prompt response.

    1. Is there a way I can add the create group link from inside a members profile?
    2. I see the add friend link. I had to test with more than one user logged in to see it. Thanks so much!
    3. I will Deactivate template pack plugin and see what happens

    @Virtuali – thanks so much. One more question: on what particular file do I place this code?

    If you want your members to create groups at will, then you could place it in member header area.

    This is how to do it If you had created a child theme of bp-default theme and you want to place the create group button where it can be seen right away, you could copy this file https://trac.buddypress.org/browser/tags/1.2.8/bp-themes/bp-default/members/single/member-header.php from the bp-default theme into your child theme’s folder following the directory structure
    i.e. wp-content/themes/yourchildtheme/members/single/member-header.php . Then you can insert the code as one of item buttons; and you should check if the Groups component was activated in your install first by adding conditional: if ( bp_is_active( ‘groups’ ) )

    == after the Add Friend, Mention this user buttons ==
    `

    <a class="button" href="”>

    `

    == or before the Add Friend, Mention this user buttons ==
    `

    <a class="button" href="”>

    Glad you resolved that on your on. Have added “or” before “before the Add Friend, Mention this user buttons ” to prevent mistakes/confusion.
