Some questions about BP

  • dace


    Hi all,

    I use BP since few days and i have some questions…

    – is it normal that when the users create a blog they have all the widget like members, site wide activity, groups ?

    if yes, is there a solution to keep all the widgets for the admin and just some one for the “normal users ?”

    – Same question with plugins, where must i put the plugins for admin and the plugins for users ? what’s the difference between /muplugins and /plugins

    – Where are uploaded member’s avatar ? i suppose we must chmod 777 this directory but i don’t find it :s

    Thx for your answers and sorry if u find some of them stupid :s

    1) bp widgets are available to all blogs. There isn’t a way in bp to restrict blog admins from using whatever widget is available to them.

    2) The plugins that are located in /mu-plugins run on all blogs and don’t need activation by the site or blog admins. Plugins located in /plugins need to be activated on a blog by blog basis.

    3) The avatars are located in /wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/1/avatars/1 and should not be set to 777 but 755 and the apache user for your server must have write permission in that directory.

    *Nothing* that you have control over should have 777 settings on your server. It’s a security hole.

    Stupid people are the ones who don’t ask questions and live in ignorance. :)
