BuddyPress

    Hi,

    I recently started using buddypress on my site and it was/is working pretty well. I was using the buddypress activity plus plugin for links and videos.

    Since the lastest update, I am missing the Post Update button in the activity area. I deactivated the activity plus plugin and tried re-installing buddypress but the problem is still there. Does anyone have a clue of how I can resolve this?

    Strange; what theme are you using? Can you share a URL?

    hey Paul,
    I'm using a 3 column buddypress theme and sure the url is http://aging.bettermeonline.net

    If you wanna test it I will send you a PM with login details.

    Thanks :)

    Sorry..I did not read your post fully...Try removing your theme & re-installing it..

    Remove your theme manually from your server & then re-install it...

    Did removing the theme resolve the issue? I'm having the same problem.

    @bnleez Unfortunately not. I hope you do find a solution :) @Deepak thanks for the responses, I did try removing it from the server and manually installing again but the problem was not resolved. I decided to completely deactivate buddypress from the site as the aim of it was the ability to share and interact.

    I have the same problem - no button to send my new message on "what's new" :-(

    Change to bp-default theme and see if issue is corrected. If not, deactivate all plugins except BuddyPress and check. Some themes and plugins have not been updated for BP 1.5.2.

    Hi Guys,

    I just had this same problem and found a solution!! Whoop Whoop! :) Hope this helps you.

    Really stupid actually!!

    I am using the twenty eleven theme with buddypress...so I used this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-template-pack/ which adds support for buddypress to your existing theme.

    After activating the bp-template-pack plugin...
    Go to Appearance > BP Compatibility

    If you disable CSS and refresh your "profile activity - what's new" page, you will see the button appear!! Use inspect element on the submit button and you will see a div structure like this:

    <div id="whats-new-content">
    		<div id="whats-new-textarea">
    			<textarea name="whats-new" id="whats-new" cols="50" rows="10"></textarea>
    		</div>
    
    		<div id="whats-new-options">
    			<div id="whats-new-submit">
    				<input type="submit" name="aw-whats-new-submit" id="aw-whats-new-submit" value="Post Update" />
    			</div>

    [Please post code or markup snippets between backticks or use the code button.]

    When you activate the css again, it seems as though the button disappears but if you look at the source code it is actually there it's just that the buttons parent div #whats-new-options has a height of 0!!

    #whats-new-options {
    overflow: auto;
    height: 0px; /*CHANGE THIS HEIGHT TO 40px or whatever you want*/
    }

    That fixed it for me! Hope it works for you guys! :)

    Thats so strange?! I created a child theme using the default BuddyPress theme and I was able to see the button before and then it disappears... I looked over the source code and what do you know the submit button was there and yes I did need change the height.

    My questions is what might have caused this change.

    @Arkadia THANKS A BUNCH!
