JetPack != compatible with BuddyPress? (25 posts)

    I've installed JetPack on a new BuddyPress-enabled site and after activating, I am unable to register with WordPress.com. When I click the button to do so, I am redirected to the front page and the cross-mojination never occurs.

    I'm also on a buddypress enabled site, and have the same problem. I click on the button, and am redirected to the front, public page of my website.

    Using WordPress 3.1, BuddyPress 1.2.8 (both currently the most recent stable releases). I'm using a lot of additional plugins, but none of them effect re-directs.

    FWIW, I emailed the Jetpack support dudes about this. They emailed back, and basically said that they know about this issue now, but the only way to use JetPack with Buddypress (when experiencing these problems) is to:

    1. Deactivate BP Plugins (as necessary)
    2. Deactivate Buddypress
    3. Activate and Connect JetPack
    4. Activate BP and BP Plugins

    Bit of a pain, but I finally broke down and shut off BP for a while, and it worked. I hate to disable the functionality of my site like that just to install a plugin, though.

    Unfortunately, JetPack also seems to be something of a resource hog; as soon as I enabled it, I started getting errors about PHP's memory being exhausted, even though my limit was already set at 64M. I did a couple of tests with a memory monitor plugin and found that JetPack required almost 9% of my RAM.

    Did some preliminary testing with BuddyPress 1.2.8/BuddyPress trunk, and WordPress 3.1, and have not found any issues. Seems the issue might be another BuddyPress plugin of some kind?

    Any more details or information would be awesome.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll test those plugins this weekend and I'll report back my findings. Rest assured if it's a BuddyPress issue, we'll get it taken care of promptly.

    Thanks everyone for patience and understanding. :)

    caneblu - Any other plugins activated? Not BuddyPress specific, but in general?

    uh.. a lot, but most of them are activated on other blog non-BP and Jetpack works. I'll check the plugins not present on both

    Breakthrough but no confirmed fix - Just narrowed the problem down to the bp-default theme that comes included with the 1.2.8 version of BuddyPress. Explains the spottiness of the reports coming in, since they are scattered across different versions, plugin combinations, and themes.

    Will update with details and a fix asap. Wanted to update with any progress I have as I have it.

    I just discovered jetpack (and the problem noted above) today. I use a child of the Suffusion theme along with the Suffusion BP Pack.

    Thanks in advance for "stepping up" with a fix.

    It does seem to be a theme issue - I enabled jetpack by temporarily switching my theme to TwentyTen and then back to the BP default once activated.

    I too have lots of plugins including BuddyPress Group Email Subscription, but did not have to deactivate anything - only switched themes.

    I am having an issue that I don't see mentioned here yet. I am using BuddyPress on a TwentyTen theme and I have had no trouble logging in since activating JetPack. However, the "sharing" buttons that I wish to appear at the end of new posts (for twitter, facebook etc) aren't being displayed. Interestingly, they do appear when I "preview post" before publishing, but disappear on the published post.

    I have made some tweaks to the theme's code but nothing that should have affected this. Anyone know where those display options are located?

    tips, ideas, fixes or workarounds would be very appreciated. Thanks!

    Still experiencing this issue. Works fine on jmonkeyengine.com, which doesn't run BuddyPress, but jmonkeyengine.org, the BP-powered community site, keeps doing the redirect.

    On our test site, a snapshot copy of our live site, I tried the suggested trick of changing the theme to TwentyTen and then activating: It works. Thing is I really don't understand why this is, and I would feel a lot more comfortable using JetPack if we were able to activate the plugin on bp-default (of which we run a childtheme) as intended, rather than some mysterious workaround.

    Does this change-of-theme activation trick mean a plugin is not at fault here, or could it be that a change of theme simply blocks out the conflicting part of the plugin? I've tried disabling the usual suspects with no luck. I'll try more later, but right now we need all our sites running to test another feature.

    As mentioned above, set your theme to Twenty Ten or Twenty Eleven, connect to WordPress.com, then change your theme back to the original.

    I fixed the problem by going to the "outgoing connections" in the control panel of my hosting provider, where I saw that several WordPress outgoing connections were denied so I add them as legit connections and that was it. After you click "Connect..." You will then be taken to the wordpress.com (not wordpress.org) site where you will create an account to register your blog.
