    If you’re on BP 1.5.3, upgrade to BP via FTP/cpanel/etc if you cannot access wp-admin.

    If you’re already on BP, what other plugins have you activated?

    I’m on

    Other Plugins:
    BrokenLink Checker
    Category Order
    Custom CSS
    Dirty Suds
    Flickr Gallery
    Genesis Simple hooks
    Genesis Simple Sidebars
    Genesis Title Toggle
    Google Analytics
    Google XML Sitemaps
    Hello Dolly (of course!)
    Promotion SLider
    Quick Page/Post Redirect
    Raw HTML
    Search & Replace
    Search Regex
    User Role Editor
    Widget Logic

    That’s it.

    Deactivate the genesis plugins, change theme to Twenty Eleven, then activate BuddyPress, and change theme to bp-default theme. And if everything’s working well, activate your new theme (genesis i presume) and the other genesis plugins.

    Hi Mercime.

    Genesis is the theme I’ve had running for six months since I first launched
    I’ll check in at StudioPress (who make Genesis) re. problems installing BuddyPress.
    They’ve been good in providing support.
    Will let forum know if they have any answers.

    Thanks for the tips.


    I thought that this was likely the answer:

    Special plugin from StudioPress ($50) to run with BuddyPress if you’re running the Genesis Framework.

    Still have the same problem.
    Have posted prob to StudioPress forum and they are currently responding.

    I have it running.

    I had to enable ‘Show adminbar on the homepage’ in GenesisConnect Settings.
    This displayed the BuddyPress admin bar at the top of my homepage where I was being redirected on logging in. *Then* I was able to use the BuddyPress admin bar to log in to WordPress.

    This was very confusing.

    I kept expecting to go straight to the old WordPress admin area after logging in.


    I seem to be back to squar one this morning.

    When I login to WordPress I am taken to my website’s homepage with the BuddyPress toolbar at the top.
    When I click on ‘Dashboard’ i get a completely blank page at

    Not good.

    I can’t access my admin at all.

    Did you install any other plugin after you resolved the issues with genesis ? Just to be sure, try to deactivate your plugins folder via FTP/cpanel by renaming the folder to e.g. wp-content/plugins-xxx

    Rename the folder back to wp-content/plugins after you access wp-admin.


    Resolved the problem.

    Wasn’t enough memory assigned in my php.ini.
    My host doubled it to 128 mb.

    That took a long time to figure out….

    Glad your hosting plan resolved this for you. Curious how many members, groups, posts etc you already have because that’s a lot of memory for a new installation.
