[Resolved] PLEASE HELP – Links from MAIN WP / BP Multisite to MEMBER PROFILES (and other areas) are

  • Brian Bowman


    I have a WP 3.3 setup using BP 1.5.2 in a mulitsite ENABLED platform. Sometimes the links work properly…but in other areas of the network, links don’t. NAMELY, the URLs to Member Profiles don’t link properly from the MAIN site.

    Background – the ‘main’ site in our multisite platform is called “”. One of our subsites is “tvhra” and found at

    Overall, links seem to work fine within the TVHRA site when linking to member profiles, activity, forum topics, etc….all good.

    However, from the main site (and i’m signed in as the site admin) – BP members section (found here ) – if I click on a member name, such as “Betty Kidd” who signed up originally on the blog site, her link tries to go to: – instead it just refreshs back to the designated home page for

    The url is wrong…should be going to

    Note that in the main site, all BP components are under parent page “community’, but in the subsite, the BP components are under parent page “our-community”…don’t think that’s the problem, but thought I’d point it out.

    I’ve already deactivated all plug-ins on the MAIN Network Admin panel, and in the NETWORKIT.COM panel AND in the TVHRA panel. Then deactivated BP. Reactivated just BP and still have the same persistent problem. UUGGGHH.

    The intellect of this community is far above mine…..any thoughts on why this is acting this way and what I need to do to fix the problem?

    FINAL NOTE: I dd see a thread on this started about 1.5 years ago, with 30+ posts…and no real evident answer…so, I’m trying again fresh.

    Much, much thanks!

    What’s in your .htaccess file?

    @mercime – much thanks for your time…this has been a REAL bugger to figure out (and I”m getting nowhere)….

    Well….this is sorta weird. I don’t see a .htaccess file (am using Dreamweaver) on the server…BUT, I do have one locally (no idea why there’s one there, but not on the server – it’s been over a year ago since I’ve set this up originally and the mind is getting a bit rusty :-) Should I upload the local .htaccess below to my root directory of network you think?

    The local version reads like this:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]

    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ – [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    SetEnv TZ America/United_States/New_York

    BUMP please. I really need to get this fixed. Much thanks.

    Have you set / defined what blog is actually running BP? i.e defined it in wp-config. It sounds a bit to me as though you are trying to run two BP installs?

    Brian Bowman


    My wp-config.php file is noted below. I’ve installed Buddypress in the main “Network Admin” site…and set it to ‘Network Activate’. HERE is what I’ve defined in the WP-CONFIG.PHP file:

    define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);
    define ( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true );
    define( ‘MULTISITE’, true );
    define( ‘SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL’, false );
    $base = ‘/’;
    define( ‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’ );
    define( ‘PATH_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘/’ );
    define( ‘SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1 );
    define( ‘BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE’, 1 );
    /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    /** Absolute path to the WordPress directory. */
    if ( !defined(‘ABSPATH’) )
    define(‘ABSPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’);

    /** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */
    require_once(ABSPATH . ‘wp-settings.php’);

    You see any problems here? Much thanks for your time @hnla
