Are you sure the MLA requires such an older version of BuddyPress? BP 4.2 was released in December 2018.
If that is the case, CBOX 1.1.1 is the release where we bumped compatibility to BuddyPress 4.2. The plugin versions for CBOX 1.1.1 can be found in the plugin manifest…[Read more]

This is a bbPress issue when people copy and paste from other pieces of content into the Visual Editor.
You’ll have to open up the restrictions bbPress places on other HTML tags like
, etc. The alternative is stripping those elements during pasting.
Hi Syelle and Ryan,
Besides adding the
ltxfile extensions to the uploaded file types, you also need to register the mime type for the file type with WordPress.
You can do this with the following snippet in
* Add custom items to mime type array for uploads
function my_mime_types( $types )…
If you’re talking about adding an “Activity” tab to a group’s (course) sidebar nav next to the existing “Course Home” and “Discussion” items, it’s possible. However, it looks like OpenLab wasn’t designed to have an activity stream for a course.
If you want to enable the Activity page for a group (course), you’ll need to do the following…[Read more]
Hi Syelle, CBOX actually bypasses the link limit when posting in forums, so that’s not the issue.
The Akismet plugin actually marked your forum post as spam. They use an automated process that sometimes marks legitimate posts as spam. If you do not see your forum post, just keep letting us know so one of the team can approve your post.
I just…[Read more]
I haven’t tried Beyond Multisite, but there are a few plugins out there that are similar like Multisite Plugin Manager (https://wordpress.org/plugins/multisite-plugin-manager/).
Try that one and see if it works for your site.
There are two ways:
1. Write a script that will run across all your sites to search each post for the code containing the PDF and Google Doc Embedder. If you have an in-house developer, that person could write a WP-CLI script to do this.
2. If you do not have access to a developer, the alternative is doing a manual search on each…[Read more]
I can confirm your report about the empty category pages. I’ve created an issue here: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/commons-in-a-box/issues/314.
I’ll update this topic when we’ve addressed this. Don’t have an ETA at the moment though.
Create a file at
Follow these instructions:
Then copy the code snippet from the previous link I mentioned for showing empty categories.
Your completed file should look like this:
By default, WordPress does not list categories with no posts attached to them.
Once you have written a post and have attached one of your missing categories, the category will show up in the dropdown list.
You can force WordPress to show empty categories, but you’ll have to use a code snippet like this one:
The first issue is caused by having too many items in the main menu. Navigate to “Appearance > Menus” in the admin dashboard and under “Select a menu to edit”, select “Main Menu” and remove some links.
For your second issue, I believe the text portion of the slider is meant to take up half the slide width. However, I’m not experienced…[Read more]
For the debug log, I meant site ID 62, not 66 (was a typo). I think what happened was a site that was connected to a group, was later manually deleted. For some reason, the group connected to the removed site is still referencing the deleted site. The group could be either from a course, project or portfolio.
Looks like most of the pages are working now. About the Calendar page and other broken pages, can you check if those pages were published?
About the “page not found” page not rendering fully, I was able to duplicate this problem locally. It’s due to a missing call to output the…[Read more]
Thanks for the info and the screenshots.
About permalinks, I should have been more specific! Your screenshots were taken from the Network Admin area. Can you go to the main site’s admin dashboard instead? Specifically:
WP_DEBUG, that looks good. Is there a debug log…[Read more]
About the missing Help and Calendar pages, one weird thing I found is I can navigate to only one post on your site:
The rest of your WordPress pages like “About” do not resolve. The Help page should show up at

Hi Amanda and Ed,
Since the last CBOX release, WordPress 5.5 was released and BuddyPress made a compatibility update.
Can you manually update BuddyPress to the latest version?
This should address the fatal error that Ed mentioned above.
If you want to update BuddyPress through the WordPress admin…[Read more]
