  • rwkiii


    I am running a fresh install of WordPress 3.4.2 with multisite and subfolders. I have no other plugins activated or even installed except for buddypress v1.6.1 and bbPress v2.1.3.

    I did some searching and found a high degree of confidence here:

    Clicking play/pause, I followed the instructions in that video to a ‘T’. When finished with the instruction, most everything works from what I can see, except for when I click the “Forums” button. I believe this is the BuddyPress forum groups. The link on that button is, but clicking on it takes me to which seems to be showing the “Hello World” default post. There is also an error across the top of the default post in a red box that says:

    The forums component has not been set up yet.

    I’ve gone into Network Admin -> Settings -> BuddyPress and unchecked the “Discussion Forums” checkbox. When I do this and click the Forums button, the page loads. The error in the red box does not appear, but now I get a different error in simple black text that says:

    Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in D:\Hosting\5387644\html\\wp-content\plugins\buddypress\bp-activity\bp-activity-template.php on line 2359

    My thought is that this is a configuration issue and not an installation issue, and though I see many discussions about this problem doing a google search it doesn’t seem like anyone has resolved it.

    Does anyone here know what might be happening? Or how I can determine what is set incorrectly?

    One thought I have… The video on installs BuddyPress/bbPress using the Admin of a single site install. In contrast, I performed my install with multisite (subfolders) already installed and configured so I found myself having to switch from Super Admin Dashboard to Admin Dashboard in order to follow the video.

    Does anyone know what would happen if I installed a fresh install of WordPress, then install BuddyPress/bbPress as per the video – THEN install multisite? It wouldn’t seem this not would work, but maybe it’s the solution?
