sub sites not redirecting pages (10 posts)

    I'm having trouble with sub site pages. For instance when a user logs in and goes to the menu "my account" -> messages it takes one back to the main site instead of staying on the sub domain. How can I fix this?

    Can you provide a little more detail about your setup. Is it subdomains or directories. What version of WordPress are you running and what plugins are you using.

    The first step to troubleshooting almost every issue with WordPress is to deactivate all plugins and see if the problem persists. Can you do that and report back?

    I'm using multisite with subdomains. I'm using WP 3.2.1.
    All plugins in subdomain are disabled.

  4. That sounds like a BuddyPress thing... Are you running that network wide?

    yes. Is there any other way on a multisite install?

  6. BuddyPress runs off the main site, NOT your subsite, so it defaults to that.

    My main thing is that I need the community thing (messages, event sharing, forum). Also, we do online teaching so we have developed a plugin that runs in buddypress. Is buddypress the only free option for doing this kind of thing? Is there no way I can do some sort of redirecting for subdomains?

  8. No, it's not the only free one, but again, if your NETWORK is sharing all that stuff, it MUST be centralized. Otherwise you can use bbPress and activate it per-site for forums, and find other PM plugins.

    Network (multiple sites) sharing data means one place has to own it, and that's the main domain.

    Ok...here's one thing i found:

    I hadn't enabled buddypress for multisite:
    define( 'BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG', true );

    Now when trying an option on the menu on a subdomain i get "page not found"

    ok. solved this issue.
    After adding:

    define( 'BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG', true );

    to the wp-config.php file and creating new pages and configuring buddypress in the subdomain it was done....
    Thanks
