  • Me too.

    I did a fresh install of WP thru my Host. Updated it to current. Updated the 2011 Theme.

    Went to plugins page and picked and installed BP.

    Got a couple of different fatal Error warnings about a exhausted memory in one or another .php page… then the same White page at /wp-admin.

    Happened on 2 separate fresh installs.

    Scared to try 3rd.



    Blank pages and Error warnings about a exhausted memory –>

    Thanks, it working fine now. Changed the memory limit on my php.ini from default to 128M.

    So, on the 3rd fresh install of WP – no BP yet,

    Before trying BP, went to install BP Columns as the theme.

    Broken Themes

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

    Name Description
    BP Columns The parent theme is missing. Please install the “bp-default” parent theme.

    How can I do these manual things, if everything is auto install?



    nickbaer – BP Columns is a child theme of bp-default theme which means you need to activate BuddyPress plugin first before you can use BP Columns.

    I’m scared to, because of the aforementioned multiple fatal errors.

    I will ask my host for advice as to which of those fixes I have access to.

    Is there a recommended BP Hosting service, with much of this already fixed ahead of time?

    Actually, this topic is NOT resolved. I submitted a bug ticket.

    On the 3rd fresh WP install, install Buddy Press plugin, activation steps, Step 4:

    Warning: Illegal offset type in /mounted-storage/home45c/sub001/sc11136/wwwBT/Talent/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core/admin/bp-core-update.php on line 642.

    Just staying…



    nickbaer, this topic is resolved for Pinhead149, original poster of the topic. You can continue here or start a new topic for your issue. What theme was activated in your installation when you activated BuddyPress? Where are you hosted? Linux or Windows hosting? Shared hosting plan?

    Actually, please do create a new topic. This thread would become unreadable for anyone coming back to it later.
