BuddyPress not activating on new WP.MU install

On https://premium.wpmudev.org/the-buddypress-manual/about-the-buddypress-admin-bar/ it says that: “When you install BuddyPress it adds the BuddyPress Admin bar which displays at the top of every site and dashboard on your network”.

We have a WP.MU installation of MultiSite, BuddyPress and bbPress with the main domain at http://charitiestoday.org/.

CharitiesToday.org has the most current BuddyPress Default theme installed (V

We have a subdirectory network site at http://charitiestoday.org/kirk1/ which is domain mapped to allmyzip.com.

AllMyZip.com has a completely separate Administrator and a completely separate User ID and password from CharitiesToday.org and it uses the default TwentyEleven theme.

The main site, site ID=1, currently has only 3 plugins installed, all Network Activated.

All other plugins have been deactivated to test why on allmyzip.com:

1 – The BuddyPress Admin bar is not displaying at the top of the Dashboard of this site;

2 – Why the links on this site under My Account (on the FRONT end of the site when the Administartor of this site is logged in) are all going to charitiestoday.org pages and not to allmyzip.com pages; and

3 – Why BuddyPress functionality does not appear to be installed on allmyzip.com to where the site admin of that site can access it in any way.

The MAIN sites plugins are:

BuddyPress (

Domain Mapping (3.0.7)

WPMU Update Notifications (2.1.3)

The WordPress MultiSite install is 3.3.1. In short, all of the software, themes and plugins are the most current versions and all excess plugins are removed other than those in question on this thread.

When the Administator of allmyzip.com (physically located at charitiestoday.org/kirk1/) is logged in, a nav bar with a My Account link appears only on the FRONT end of this site. A BuddyPress nav bar is NOT currently visible from within the Dashboard.

Additionally, all of the links on that page are going to charitiestoday.org pages, not to allmyzip.com pages. Mousing over those links shows the URLs they are going to:

My Account > http://charitiestoday.org/members/kirk1/

Activity > http://charitiestoday.org/members/kirk1/activity/

Profile > http://charitiestoday.org/members/kirk1/profile/

Sites > http://charitiestoday.org/members/kirk1/blogs/

Messages > http://charitiestoday.org/members/kirk1/messages/

Settings > http://charitiestoday.org/members/kirk1/settings/ and so on.

In short: BuddyPress functionality does not appear activated for allmyzip.com and the domain mapping is still generating links to charitiestoday.org from the My Account link in the nav bar at the top of the logged in site administators FRONT end pages.

What is it that we do we need to do to correct these issues?

Thanks very much,
