Description

Both on my site, running a child theme off of bp_default, and on buddypress.org, the search boxes don't return results. They both just return the landing page.

Also, not sure if this is a bug or what, but I haven't had any luck getting the activity stream to show "the_excerpt"

Try the search on testbp.org.

There's a search box in the top-right corner of the page. Select "Pages" from the dropdown menu and search.

Is that what you mean? It works for me.

About "the_excerpt", you'll need to create a plugin by hooking into the filters available in /buddypress/bp-blogs/bp-blogs-activity.php. It might be good for BP to use the_excerpt by default, but a new enhancement ticket should be created for that.

Yes, that works. Is it a different core theme? I'm using a child theme of BPDefault. Does BuddyPress.org run as a child of BPdefault (because search doesn't seem to work there either..?

Not sure how to do this, but will look into it more.

Thanks!

It would appear to be related to the version of BuddyPress I have - search doesn't work on any of the themes I have when BP is installed, but does when BP deactivated. I have Version 1.5.3.1 installed. Are buddypress.org and http://testbp.org/ running different versions?

Is there a central place for downloading older versions of BP?

I activated/deactivated a couple plugins including BP, and search seems to be working now. Sorry for the run around - although there does appear to be the same issue on buddypress.org.

If you can figure out what plugin caused the error, that would be interesting.
