Thanks, Ray. I debugged as you suggested, and indeed the URL that’s outputted to the browser is the URL for the blog e.g.,
so BP Groupblog is behaving as it should.
I’m not running any must-use plugins and don’t have a bp-custom.php file. I’m using a child theme but haven’t made any recent changes to it.
On my local installation of CBOX with BP Groupblog enabled, I am not running into the groupblog redirect issue.
NOBLOGREDIRECTline, do you have any other code snippets in
wp-content/themes/cbox-child, or in
If not and you feel adventurous, you can try some…[Read more]
I’ve deactivated each plugin in turn (except CBOX), and none of the plugins appears to be the cause of the problem.
The problem happens with all groups, whether public or private. The “Blog” link in the left navigation for the group redirects to https://sunygeneseoenglish.org/wp-admin/
The other plugins seem fine to me, but if you want, you can disable them one at a time to see if one of them might be causing the redirect.
Some other potential things to check: Do you have any 3rd-party plugins running on the groupblog that might be causing the redirect? What is the privacy option set to for the groupblog in question?
I deactivated WordFence, but the behavior persists. I think the general behavior you were observing earlier — “if I attempt to visit a page that doesn’t exist on your site (https://sunygeneseoenglish.org/WHATEVER), the URL will redirect back to the homepage instead of landing on the 404 page” — was caused by this line in wp-co…[Read more]
Plugins, in addition to CBOX and its bundled plugins, are
- BP Classic
- Classic Editor
- CommentPress Core
- Markup Markdown
- PDF Embedder
- Post Type Switcher
I notice that if I attempt to visit a page that doesn’t exist on your site (https://sunygeneseoenglish.org/WHATEVER), the URL will redirect back to the homepage instead of landing on the 404 page. I’m guessing a plugin is causing this behavior, which in turn is affecting the groupblog redirect.
It’s possible that a plugin is responsible…[Read more]
I’m running BP 11.4.0 and letting CBOX manage my plugins. I’ve sometimes managed them independently in order to stay abreast of updates, but I knew from some of your messages in the GitHub repo that 12 has significant differences, so I’ve held back.
For reference, here’s where the redirect happens: https://github.com/boonebgorges/bp-groupblog/blob/565b256ede1f2a8c89c480e78b97753d3257afbe/bp-groupblog.php#L1881
I suspect that
$blog_idis incorrectly returning
get_home_url()is doing something strange.
Have you by any chance updated BP to version 12.0+? You would have to have done…[Read more]
Thanks for the reply, Boone! Redirect is set as it should be under GroupBlog Setup. I’m seeing this behavior on blogs associated with public groups that anyone can join. A logged in user who’s a member of the group gets directed to the Dashboard of the main site, English @ SUNY Geneseo. Ditto for a logged in user who isn’t a member of the group. A…[Read more]
Hi Paul – It’s normal for the href attribute of the links to point to /groups/name-of-group/blog. But once you load that page, you ought to be redirected to the group blog’s home page, ie to name-of-blog.sunygeneseoenglish.org.
A few things to check:
– Go to Dashboard > Network Admin > Settings > GroupBlog Setup > Redirect. Ensure that ‘Redirect…[Read more]
At https://sunygeneseoenglish.org, the “Blog” link in the left navigation of each group’s home page redirects to the main site’s login page (when logged out) or to the main site’s dashboard (when logged in, for a user with access to the main site’s dashboard).
The “Blog” link in every group’s left navigation has the form…[Read more]
Can anyone point me towards some quick and easy ways to manage (i.e., cut down on) storage for a multi-site installation? Our hosting company has informed us that we’re over our limit, and as a (very) part-time WP admin, I’m a little out of my depth here.
I can see that our main site is taking up 41.9 GB of space, while the staging and dev…[Read more]

Glad you were able to switch to a subdirectory set up for your multisite configuration.

Even though my wildcard subdomain *, was set up correctly in my Bluehost cPanel dashboard, the root cause of my subsites’ creation problem was my SSL Certificate not being the right type of certificate for my wildcard subdomain.
To properly set up a subdomain-type Wordpress Multisite that uses a wildcard subdomain and only a single…[Read more]

It sounds like you might need to reconfigure wildcard subdomains on Bluehost. Check out the “Setting up Wildcard Subdomains” section of this article: https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-install-and-setup-wordpress-multisite-network/#wildcard

My CBOX multisite at Bluehost was working fine in Nov 2019, but stopped working because I forgot to pay the hosting fee because I was too busy doing other things. After paying the fee in Jan 2020, I was able to see the main site and its dashboard but not the subsites. So I tried restoring the entire multisite using UpdraftPlus, but it still h…[Read more]
