Fix 1.1rc BP core member and group widgets to work in non-BP themes again

Reported by: ssokolenko Owned by:
Milestone: 1.1 Priority: major
Severity: Version:
Component: Keywords:


Setup: WPMU 2.8.4a
BP: 1.1-rc (upgraded from 1.0.3)
Main Blog Theme: Atahualpa 3.4.3 (the blog installed in root)
Buddypress: is installed on a separate blog (i changed BP_ROOT_BLOG in plugins/bp-custom.php) and I use the new theme architecture. Active blog theme: bp-default

I placed the BP core member widget and BP core group widget in my main Atahualpa-themed blog.

Problem #1:
It seems that the style declaration is missing from 1.1-rc (it used to be in 1.0.3 and made these widgets look fine)

.widget_bp_core_members_widget ul#members-list li {

min-height: 60px;


Without this style, the 1.1rc widgets look broken (text overlaps with images)

Problem #2:
The Newest/ Active / Popular links in the member and group widget point to <domain>/members (etc) instead of <domain>/<bp_root_blog>/members. When I click on them, the requests time out because of max redirects.

I'm not going to add CSS for widgets in 1.1 since this is the job of the theme. Styles that work for one theme may not for another.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Your second problem is because you need to add:

define( 'BP_ROOT_BLOG', [id of blog] );

in your wp-config.php file. The ID should be the ID of the blog being used for the widgets.
