Links to forum posts, member pages not working

Hi Everyone!

i have a WP single install 3.03 with a BP install 1.2.6 running on Bluehost

BP-Album+ and Configure SMTP plug ins, though the problem happens with these disabled as well.

Happens with default theme and WPMU Daily Theme

After importing members and their discussion posts from ning, when you click on an individual post or member profile in any forum, you brought to the home page.

The links to blog categories and single blog posts work fine.

i've changed the permalinks several times, deleted the .htaccess file and found no real solution on the forums . I've set the site to the default BP theme until I can resolve this. I am not a coding genius, so any suggestions would help.

thanks for your help, eric.
