Buddypress Q-and-A page (Buddypress profile) yields "page not found" error


Multisite installation (on localhost, in the root directory).

I have Buddypress installed in the main site and Q&A plugin installed in a subsite.

Links to members’ “q-and-a” buddypress profile page (i.e. http//localhost/members/username/q-and-a) yields a Page not found (404) error.

I checked that bp_core_new_nav_item registers correctly in $bp.

Did I overlook something? Am I supposed to copy templates into my theme? Or?

    Hi avincom and first off, welcome to WPMU DEV!

    Could you let us know what versions of WordPress, BuddyPress and Q&A you’re using first off? Given all the recent updates, that’d help to see whether this is version-related.

    Also, I see you’re on a local computer setup, correct? If so, are other BuddyPress elements/pages working fine?

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I found out the reason for my initial problem: I thought the QA plugin was network-activated but I had made the mistake of activating it only in the sub-site.

    So the problem is now gone and the page displays all right.

    Now I find that the counters are not correct: they keep displaying 0 question and 0 answer. I’ll dig a little deeper before getting back to you.

    Thanks again.

    Hi again,

    I played a little more with the plugin and I can see that the Buddypress q-and-a page only displays questions and answers from the main site (through a simple WP_Query call), not from the sub-sites.

    This is an issue for me.

    Can this be addressed, please?


    Best regards.

    Come on, guys. I expected this place to be more responsive. How difficult is it to confirm whether the plugin is multi-site compliant?

    Can you please confirm this the plugins only pulls questions and answers from the main site when one displays one’s buddypress profile?

    Hi avincom,

    My sincere apologies for missing your responses here. Glad you got that initial item sorted but I can confirm, Q&A doesn’t pull network-wide questions and answers when used in a Multisite, so likewise it wouldn’t pull them in the BuddyPress area of your site in a Multisite BuddyPress setup as well.

    I’m afraid it doesn’t do that at this point. We can look at that via a feature suggestion if you like though, if you’ll post that in the following forum:
