I had a look at the setup and I also tested it on a local development installation.
Can you please confirm that you did the following things:-
1. You have enabled BuddyPress Multi Blog Mode( BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG constant defined)
2. You have network activated BuddyPress
3. You have Network activated BuddyPress Multi Network plugin
That is the first step and it seems( though I could not check) that you have already done that.
As far as I understand, Your problem is because tables are not being created for the new sites BuddyPress installation.
To make sure that BuddyPress installs properly on subsite, please make sure to do the following:-
1. After creating a sub site, please visit the sub site’s dashboard as Super Admin( Or network admin ) atleast once.
If you don’t do that tables won’t be created. This is due to a change in BuddyPress in 2.0+.
Please try creating a test site and visit its dashboard as super admin. Then Visit Settings->BuddyPress and save the component settings.Then please check if the profile field groups are created properly for that site.
PS: Registration/Activation are specific to a sub site( just confirming your 2nd question and that works).
Please check and let me know.
Yer visiting the site before etc seems to have solved it!
Still messed on the other subsite but I will just delete it.
One other thing, is there a way to add a member type field to each of the networks that the user can’t change?
I.e. when they sign up as a student there is a member field filled in on the registration form saying student, and they can’t change it.
Thanks a lot for all this. Great plugin and support worth the $45
Thank you Lukas for the appreciation. Your support keeps us motivated 🙂
About the member type field:-
There are multiple solutions to that.
1. You can register a member type in your bp-custom.php. Any member type registered there will be available on all sites.
In case you need help registering member type, here is a tutorial series on that.
2. We have a plugin that disables editing of a field once updated. You can use this to disallow students from changing their member type.
3. If you want a member type field, here is a plugin that may help
PS: We also have a Member type generator plugin that works with Multisite( But we haven’t tested it with a Multi Blog setup yet)
Hope that helps.
Hey just reading the tutorial on creating member types. Once I have created member types is there a function to search though members and return a particular? and then create a shortcode using:
to display one type of members on a page?
