[Resolved] [Plugin: BuddyPress Groups Extras] Nothing happens when I want to create a page

Viewing 15 replies - 1 through 15 (of 20 total)
  • My problem is I am no able to display the external webpage on buddypress groups extras page. I am using pageview plugin which should allow me to do that.

    any help please.

    Having the very same issue the OP. Nothing happen when creating a page or field. No error to report either. I sure hope the dev decides to keep this plugin going as it was easily one of my favorite BP plugins till it stopped working.

    Same here. Doesn’t work with BuddyPress 1.6.1 … Shame!

    Same here

    from debug,
    NOTICE: /bpge-cssjs.php:9 – Undefined index: page
    NOTICE: /bpge-loader.php:303 – Undefined offset: 1 and Undefined variable: bp and Trying to get property of non-object

    You can fix the first error by replacing line 9 with:

    if ($_GET['post_type'] == 'gpages' || $post_type == 'gpages' || $_GET['page'] == 'bpge-admin')

    I’m not sure how to fix the rest.

    This only enqueues the admin javascript. It does not fix this plugin. Hopefully we’ll see an update or patch soon.

    I’m not sure if this helps, but I was successfully using this plugin ‘until’ I changed the root permalink-url ‘name’ of my ‘groups’ page in Buddypress from ‘groups‘ to ‘projects‘. After that change, BuddyPress Groups Extras 100% stopped working. I went in circles for quite some time trying to resolve this, until it dawned on me that the url change was possibly the issue.

    Changing the groups permalink-url (via the specific page I created for the Groups part of Buddypress) back to ‘groups’ from ‘projects’ re-enabled all the functionality of Buddypress Groups Extras that had stopped working. I’m quite sure there is a more eloquent way to correct this (likely via the bp-custom.php file as I would like to use the ‘projects’ url for the groups area) but for anyone else having problems with this plugin, you might want to check the url for your groups area (page) in Buddypress.

    Thanks jeffacubed,
    Changing the slug did the trick.
    I was trying the extra fields out and created a page but now I want to delete it but can’t. Any pointers on deleting a page?

    Hi dcsenterprise! Good to hear that the slug-trick (reverting to ‘groups’) moved you a bit farther along with this otherwise awesome plugin for Buddypress. While changing the slug ‘should’ not be necessary for all of this to work properly, I suspect that some where ~ buddypress 1.5+ the way group-slugs were handled in the buddypress core changed (for some very good internal stability reason at the buddypress core). I’ve had a number of buddypress specific plugin that all started to work again after reverting the groups slug from ‘projects’ back to ‘groups’.

    As far as deleting a field, I’m pretty sure if you just select the radio-button in the general settings (via the admin > extras > general settings in the buddypress front-end for a given group) to ‘hide it’ then the page you previously created for your custom fields will go away. It does not look like the fields specific pages show up in the wordpress back-end, though I haven’t tested that extensively.

    Hope that helps!

    Is there a tutorial that I can view? I’m getting a bit confused with creating pages and fields etc. It would be nice to have something that can walk me though the process.

    For what it’s worth, I’m about x2 weeks away from wrapping up a major buddypress project, & I’m still undecided if I want to include this ‘groups extras’ plugin to extend bp-group functionality – not because the features/functionality are not truly awesome (& features I do need), but because I find the usability to be rather ‘unpredictable’ in practice, which as a developer I’m extremely cautious (for good reason…) to use plugins that could cause any downstream stability/usability issues for my clients. That being said, the developer has a numbers of other buddypress plugins that are truly phenomenal (BP GTM System) & (Buddypress Avatar Bubble). I *think* what’s happening here is the entire way the group menu/sub-menus are going to be handled in Buddypress is being re-coded/re-thought for the upcoming release of Buddypress 1.7+ (which is a very good thing moving forwards with buddypress), so group specific plugins are ‘most likely’ not being updated until Buddypress 1.7 comes out. I could be wrong, but I suspect that may be the case, or at least might explain part of the confusion…

    After my latest buddypress project lunches & the dust settles, I’ll take some time to see if I can’t produce some kind of best practices tutorial on how to work with this otherwise amazing plugin addition for buddypress groups!

    Thank you for your quick response.
    Your plugin is invaluable to me for the project I’m working on. Frankly it should be a part of core functions in BP, just like Profile fields is to Members.

    I am going to see if I can document my efforts. I’m just stuck on adding pages mostly. I was able to create a dropdown field and get it on the page but I need people to be able to add several pages of information and a couple of select fields.

    My best to you on your current project. Can you tell us what that is?

    Hello again,
    I realize you are busy working on other projects and I don’t want to take up your time, but, could you please lead me to where I can have text boxes and multiline text areas display with formatting?

    Wow, thanks for your feedback! Really appreciate it.

    Fields editing appear on group description standard page.
    Fields content appear on Extras group page (default name, can be changed).

    Pages – are independent, create on Group admin -> Extras -> Add page.
    Reordered on Group admin -> Extras -> All pages.
    Displayed or not on Group admin -> Extras -> General.

    Hope that helps.

    Please update the plugin 🙂
