OK, I figured the problem out but have no answer. After upgrade to wpmu 2.8.4a from 2.8.2 using buddypress 1.0.3, I noticed that when new users sign up, even though they apply for public privacy at the sign up page, when logged in, their blogs aren’t public, and as a test member, I have to go to settings >> privacy >> and choose a radio button for public privacy again, and afterward it works.
Seem to me the sign up page did not allow public privacy even though members wanted that option!
Any idea how to fix this?
OK, I have tested all methods. I even deactivated buddypress plugin, remove all plugins, and then sign up a test user with just wpmu, when did this, wpmu set privacy option for blog correctly, but right after I activate buddypress again, I saw the same user I just had created with wpmu earlier – the privacy went private again and not set as public.
This makes me think that wpmu 2.8.4a is conflicting with buddypress 1.0.3. Maybe buddypress 1.0.3 is trying to change the privacy from wpmu 2.8.4a. Since none of the plugins I installed is conflicting with either buddypress 1.0.3 or wpmu 2.8.4a at all. So this must be the problem of buddypress 1.0.3.
Can anyone help me confirm this problem? Or it’s me that the only one who has this problem? Thanks…
New update: I couldn’t figure out what had gone wrong . This time around, I used a working database that was backed up before I had updated wpmu to 2.8.4.a, and bp before 1.0.3. Then I apply the working bp1.0.3 and working wpmu2.8.4a with that old database, and I ran the upgrade process in wpmu to synch the blogs — this done without any additional plugins and mu-plugins (all default). After all that work, I still got new sign up users cannot set correct privacy setting with the sign-up page. Instead, he/she must logged in, changed the privacy setting again to have everything works out. This sound like a template problem to you? Maybe the template is passing in the wrong sql call at the privacy portion? The funny thing is that this isn’t a problem with wpmu2.8.2 and bp1.
some time back when i first installed bp, some of the db tables failed to be created and i followed directions in a thread on this forum and created them in sql. but the first couple of blogs that i set up prior to running the sql show no member blog created just like yours. flipping the privacy options don’t correct the problem. they just don’t show up under the profile page at all.
but the posts show up on sitewide posts for some reason
