    I recently downloaded Evolve Plus and then installed BuddyPress to my site. BuddyPress did not create any pages (as it should have), and if I create them myself, they do not work / have the features such as “Create groups”, etc.

    Beyond that, I found evolve because it was supposed to have easy integration with BuddyPress.

    Hi,

    I had just physically went through installation and activation of BuddyPress Plugin with Evolve Plus Theme.

    It’s working properly. There are only 4 BuddyPress pages that will be automatically created and assigned.

    Before you install BuddyPress Plugin. Check that you enabled registration for users. Go to WordPress admin -> Settings -> General -> Membership Check the check-box to allow “Anyone can register”. If you do not want to do allow this, the register and activation page will not be automatically created by BuddyPress. Here is the explanation. https://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/register-and-activation-pages/

    After you have installed BuddyPress and activated it. You can look for the auto generated pages.
    Look for them in WordPress admin -> Settings -> BuddyPress Click the Pages Tab. You will see this. http://prntscr.com/8h8c2y

    The following is screenshot of the pages created.
    Members -> http://prntscr.com/8h8cry
    Activity Stream -> http://prntscr.com/8h8d5u
    Register -> http://prntscr.com/8h8dbj (Need to log out of WordPress admin to see this page)
    Activate -> http://prntscr.com/8h8do1 (Need to log out of WordPress admin to see this page)

    You can go to WordPress admin -> Appearance -> Menus to setup your BuddyPress front and back-end page links to the menu. http://prntscr.com/8h8h3n

    Sorry, that’s all we can provide for BuddyPress setup support.
    Please kindly contact us via our services page https://theme4press.com/services/ if you require any further setup assistance.

    Thanks!

    Thanks. The issue was that the four BuddyPress pages were not being made automatically. I got it working though.

    Can you explain, or send me somewhere I can understand how to create those different links in the menu for logged in vs logged out users? Additionally, I have created the Activate and Register pages (and linked them in settings) and yet it simply redirects me to my home page.

    Thank you again.

    Hi,

    Can you explain, or send me somewhere I can understand how to create those different links in the menu for logged in vs logged out users?

    I did not create them, they are there by default.

    Go to WordPress admin -> Appearance -> Menus
    On the left hand column, there is “BuddyPress” section, click on it and it will expand downwards to show you the selection. http://prntscr.com/8h8h3n

    Additionally, I have created the Activate and Register pages (and linked them in settings) and yet it simply redirects me to my home page.

    You need to log out of your WordPress Admin. This is a BuddyPress default behavior, it will redirect you to homepage if you are logged in, it’s because you are already logged in and does not need to register anymore…

    After you logged out, go to your login page.
    For example, http://example.com/wp-login.php
    click on the register link at the login form, it will bring you to your register page.
    As for your activate page, remember the url, after you logout, enter it in your browser and you will be able to get there.

    I believe, I have already explained in my previous reply, as follows..

    Register -> http://prntscr.com/8h8dbj (Need to log out of WordPress admin to see this page)

    Thank you.
