Support » Plugin: Achievements for WordPress » Buddypress on WPMU subsite

  • Resolved illuminessence


    Hey there – awesome plugin!

    I am using a regular multisite setup with buddypress set to a subsite using define(‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 5); in wp-config.php

    I can get achievements to work just fine, and it automatically takes me to the buddypress achievements page on the subsite, but is showing 0 karma points per achievement.

    Does buddypress need to be installed on the main site for achievements to work properly? is there a snippet of code i can use to tell achievements to base itself off of the buddypress subsite? Or am i having a different problem entirely?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

  • i used the shortcodes on a page on my main site, and it showed all the achievements and associated karma points for achievements both on the main site and buddypress site..

    I added the shortcodes to a page on the buddypress site and its just showing empty spaces where the achievements should be, though it is creating space for each achievement – just not awarding karma points:

    (I really dislike BP’s BP_ROOT_BLOG. I wish we never added it.)

    I’m not sure Achievements works with a different BP_ROOT_BLOG set. I vaguely remember headaches during development, but I can’t remember if I decided the support it or not.

    I think you’ll want to ‘network activate’ Achievements, and set this in your wp-config.php:
    define( 'DPA_DATA_STORE', 5 );

    Hey, sorry for being M.I.A. – just remembered this thread. About to try your suggestion and will report back..


    Ok, so I added that code, and it switched the achievements admin menu item to my subsites dashboard.. went to try and create a new achievement, and when i click the “press here to add achievement” button, nothing comes up. Saw that someone else had the same problem – ever figure out what it was?

    I removed the bit of code from wp-config, to get achievements reassociated with the root blog, and now the “press here” button brings up the full list of actions..

    hmmm.. any ideas?

    What precisely is “nothing comes up”? Can I get a screenshot?

    OK, so after reading a few comments here and there about people, including yourself, not being so fond of BP_ROOT_BLOG for numerous reason, i decided to just quit while im ahead and recreate my network from the ground up, with buddypress on the root blog..

    Problem solved! haha

    Thanks for your time..

    I’m sorry I wasn’t able to help fix the problem directly without you having to change the BP_ROOT_BLOG configuration.
