#3943 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Links from MAIN WP / BP Multisite to MEMBER PROFILES (and other areas) are Redirecting

Reported by: topracer's profile topracer Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.5.4
Component: Core Keywords: reporter-feedback


I have a WP 3.3 setup using BP 1.5.2 in a mulitsite ENABLED platform. Sometimes the links work properly…but in other areas of the network, links don’t. NAMELY, the URLs to Member Profiles don’t link properly from the MAIN site.

Background – the ‘main’ site in our multisite platform is called “”. One of our subsites is “tvhra” and found at

Overall, links seem to work fine within the TVHRA site when linking to member profiles, activity, forum topics, etc….all good.

However, from the main site (and i’m signed in as the site admin) – BP members section (found here ) – if I click on a member name, such as “Betty Kidd” who signed up originally on the blog site, her link tries to go to: – instead it just refreshs back to the designated home page for

The url is wrong…should be going to

Note that in the main site, all BP components are under parent page “community’, but in the subsite, the BP components are under parent page “our-community”…don’t think that’s the problem, but thought I’d point it out.

I’ve already deactivated all plug-ins on the MAIN Network Admin panel, and in the NETWORKIT.COM panel AND in the TVHRA panel. Then deactivated BP. Reactivated just BP and still have the same persistent problem. UUGGGHH.

NOTE: Same problems seen in support forums on multiple occassions (lingering problem....); however, no answer was ever found that I can find. Furthermore, after this response / solution presented by anyone in over 10+ days.

It might have something to do with your subdirectory multisite setup.

I just spent some time creating a new subdirectory multisite setup from scratch using WP 3.3.1 and BP

BuddyPress is network-activated with the following in wp-config.php:

define( 'BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG', true );

No other plugins are activated on any of the sites.

I have the following member directories (sites are bolded):

localhost/community/members (TwentyEleven theme with BP Template Pack installed)
localhost/subsite/our-community/members (bp-default theme)

Both the localhost site and the localhost/subsite member links resolve properly for me.

Please pass the link to the forum thread to continue discussion.

Many of the pages and links in this report are dead or have moved. It's difficult for us to troubleshoot a moving target, so I'm closing this as worksforme. Feel free to reopen with fresh steps to reproduce this configuration so we can tell if this is a bug with the software or a configuration issue.
