Temporary deactivating BuddyPress possible?

  • Shmoo


    I have a problem with bbPress pagination of topics/replies and now I would like to deactivate all plugins to check if some other plugin is causing this problem.
    BuddyPress _ Dubug-bar are the only plugins active so is it possible to deactivate BuddyPress temporary by just switching the BuddyPress plugin OFF.

    When I turn it back on again do I keep all content-data I already included such as Groups, pages…

    True, but some Plugins and software today have some kinda of deactivation script that cleans-up everything they do when you deactivate them.

    That’s why I asked. 🙂




    BuddyPress has no deactivation script so you don’t accidentally delete your content



    Our buddypress plugin main plugin was deactivated by accident and now we can no longer access any content on the website or login ad admin to reactivate it.

    I am not sure what to do. We had a backup of the entire wordpress installation prior to that mistake and it was restored in full. This is from the error log:

    PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_is_register_page() in /home1/tgscca1/public_html/wp-content/plugins/s2member/includes/classes/ on line 50



    Likely in your s2member setup, you are integrating some BuddyPress functionality and since BP is deactivated the s2member plugin is throwing up an error. So now you are locked out of your admin.

    There is a simple solution if you have access to FTP.

    Just rename your ‘wp-content/plugins’ folder to ‘wp-content/_plugins’. Note the underscore.

    This will instantly deactivated all plugins, as WordPress will not be able to load the plugins directory. Then you should be able to log in again. If you rename _plugins back to plugins, then your plugins will load again. So maybe rename s2member so it deactivates, then reactivate BuddyPress and then s2member after.
