Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Groupblog » No Group Blog Option – Fresh Install

  • I just did a fresh install of WordPress 3.5.1, BuddyPress 1.71, and then made 3 groups. I then installed Groupblog 1.8.1 and activated it.. and now I’m completely lost. The instructions say “run through the admin options” – where? There is nothing in the dashboard and if I bring the groups up there is no Group Blog option in the Admin settings on the group.

    What am I missing? What did I do wrong?

    In your wordpress dashboard under settings there should Website Setup. Is that what you are looking for?

    Sorry to mingle in this thread, but I am having the same problem. And no “Website setup” either…?
    Nothing under Buddypress settings, and nothing even resembling “Blog” or the like when viewing from frontwend as admin (not under the admin part for each group either, as otherwise shown on images from the plugin page… Just nothing.

    Please help… ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did end up figuring this out. You have to enable the WordPress Network feature.

    Probably a good thing to mention in the installation guide.

    Ah! ..ยท Yeah, that’s kind of an important detail *lol*

    Nevermind, I just installed BBpress insetad and seems like it works like a charm ๐Ÿ™‚

    lolled at ‘detail’

    I’ve got the same problem. Using WordPress 3.5.2 and BuddyPress 1.8.

    I have two test groups set up, and wanted each of them to have their own blog capability, so installed this plugin.

    Nothing. The plugin is activated, but no Group Blog checkbox in the group admin screen. And nothing, as far as I can tell, in the Dashboard.

    I see the post above about creating a network. I don’t want to have a multi-site setup, each with their own site; I want to have one site with a bunch of groups, each with their own blog, their own activity stream, and their own members, but able to see and read others on the same site.

    BruceInLouisville – BuddyPress Groupblog requires Network mode. If you don’t have multisite enabled, the plugin won’t do anything (just as you’ve described).

    I enabled multisite, but still don’t have any admin options. Brand new install.



    Why has the question about the not seeing the admin options been answered?

    Many have asked and none has answered.

    For us that have multisite activated.

    My 2 cents:

    BuddyPress Groupblog requires Network mode. If you don’t have multisite enabled, the plugin won’t do anything.

    This info would be useful on the plugin description rather than buried in the support threads. It would have saved me a bunch of time. Maybe it seems obvious to the more adept, but for the likes of me, it took a while to suss out.

    Cheers. Works like a charm!

    Hi @jglonek

    You must be have this option enabled?
    define( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true );

    If it’s true disable it for a while and you can discover option page here:
