#3423 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Can not activate BuddyPress on the second blog on WordPress multi-site (subdirectory)

Reported by: lightcapturer's profile lightcapturer Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.5
Component: Core Keywords:


I have tried several times to enable BuddyPress, both of which I downloaded from the trunk or from the tags, on the second blog on WordPress multi-site (subdirectory), but not being successful. Here is the statement after I click the Save & Next when updating BuddyPress: "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

I've not tested yet but this should be checked

Have encountered same. But have carried on. bp 4943. BP Root Blog on subdirectory - still appears to function correctly.

scratch my comment above. The behavior is just as @ lightcapturer describes. press forum set-up (new or existing) and you get "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." message v.4963

it just will not produce a viewable forums directory page. http/mysite/subsite/forums/ reverts to http/mysite/subsite/.

but somehow it does in trunk 4947 ???

lightcapturer - please clarify how you are "[activating BP] on the second blog on WordPress multi-site (subdirectory)". To activate BP, I have to go to Network Admin and activate it Network-wide. To make it work on a site with ID != 1, I have to set BP_ROOT_BLOG in wp-config.php. If you can provide step-by-step instructions to make sure we recreate in the same way, that will help. Thanks.

I've been working with someone testing & defining BP_ROOT_BLOG to a subsite works as of late last week.

Still getting "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page" using trunk 4986 with bbpress 1.03 in bp-forums folder.



define('WPLANG', );
define('BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG', true );
define ( 'BP_ROOT_BLOG', 2 );

  • For developers: WordPress debugging mode. *
  • Change this to true to enable the display of notices during development.
  • It is strongly recommended that plugin and theme developers use WP_DEBUG
  • in their development environments. */

define('WP_DEBUG', false);
define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
define( 'MULTISITE', true );
define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false );
$base = '/';
define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '' );
define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
define('BP_DISABLE_ADMIN_BAR', true);
/* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */


Also, if relevant, in trunk 4947 it set up the forum directory page, but you can't make a new topic. as the page loads you can see the new topic set-up, but that goes away as page load completes. Then clicking new topic button does nothing. Subsequent trunks didn't get this far. May be meaningless.

When you have

define('BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG', true );


define ( 'BP_ROOT_BLOG', 2 );

is ignored. With BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG every blog is the root blog.

Replying to DJPaul:

This is a ticket that I created 2 weeks ago. At that time indeed I found the problem, failed to activate BuddyPress on WordPress multisite (subdirectory). The steps that I do is exactly as you described, with BP_ROOT_BLOG setting in wp-config.php. Some days I let it up and then I try again. Surprisingly, it worked by itself. And I did not make any changes on the settings. Until now I do not know what made ​​it work. The problem now is gone by itself.

Even now I'm finishing a BuddyPress project on a subdirectory (just a reworking with BP 1.5).

While, my current problem is only this ticket.

I'm sorry for the delay to reply.
