[resolved] Multisite not showing plugin menus (7 posts)

    I recently upgraded to 3.2.1 and I had two functioning sites. The first site is a public site, plain theme with just a few plugins. The 2nd site is a buddypress private site with tons of plugins to manage things.

    After the upgrade, my buddypress menu is missing on the site. Further, I can't see any of the plugins in the plugin menu and my network ONLY allows me to network activate. I don't want to network activate buddypress. I can see the buddypress menu and options when I'm in the network admin (/wp-admin/network/), but not in each site.

    I've deactivated every plugin to see if there is a conflict, but so far that hasn't helped. In fact, now that I tried to activate them again, I ended up having to "Network Activate" buddypress and my plain Jane site #1 is complaining that the theme doesn't support it. Of course I can't even see the BP menu on the site so I'm stuck...

    I'm really in a lurch here because now my BP Private site is vulnerable. Any help would be appreciated.

    Screenshot here. This shows my private site which should have buddypress menus and the plugins for it.

  2. I don't want to network activate buddypress.

    That's your only option for the buddypress plugin. You *have* to network activate it.

    Make sure you upgrade the buddypress plugin as well, and post over in *their* forums.

    That wasn't the case before I upgraded. I had a list of plugins on each site whether they were network activated or just on that site. But maybe you can help suggest some plugins and code that will do what I want without BP?

    I need a forum that is viewable by logged in users, but only admin can post. Plus only a few pages visible to non-logged in users. I plan to register users and handle approval with Formidable Pro.

    That behavior changed in 3.1.

    Buddypress is not a forum, it's a social network. It uses bbpress for the forum section.

    Buddypress is not a forum, it's a social network. It uses bbpress for the forum section.

    That said, are you aware of whether bbpress has the capabilities I need? (That being a forum that is viewable only to logged in users, and only admin can post in the forum.)

    I'm aware BP doesn't have this natively, I got it to work with a few plugins.

    Thanks for your input.

  6. It does not out of the box, but I suspect that you could do it with plugins/tweaking.

    I ended up getting rid of the multi-site and BP and just installed WP on a sub-domain. Now we're able to handle the security with the appropriate plugins. Thanks!
