    I'm hoping that this is the best place to ask for some pointers...

    I'm new to WP and BP and am finding my way around slowly. I have successfully implemented WP3.0 with Thematic and have been able to set up a child theme and make a few modifications.

    My problems start when I introduce BP into the mix...

    I'm starting with a clean WP3.0 installation, installing BP, changing the permalinks, and then installing the default BP theme. Everything works. Then I install and activate Buddymatic and I find that several of the pages that worked under the default theme simply don't work in Buddymatic.

    For example, when I select members under the default theme the url is and this works. If I activate Buddymatic it trys to find but then simply redirects to the home page -

    This happens to every page I try to select except those I've created myself in the dashboard. I'm sure this must be a simple setting I'm missing somewhere, but after searching for hours I'm still stuck.

    Can anyone help?

    More on this....

    While waiting (hopefully) for someone to help point me in the right direction, I have just set up a local development environment to see if I could get things working there.

    I have exacly the same issue.

    This is a real disappointment for me. It really looks like Buddymatic would provide the ideal starting point for me to learn more. I can't believe that it doesn't work out of the box, so I assume I'm missing a really simple but vital step.

    I've researched for hours on line and all roads point here as the support forum for Thematic/Buddymatic - is this right?

    I'd really appreciate some help...

  3. i'm no help, really, but i swear I remember reading somewhere on the interwebs that thematic's current release + wp3.0 + buddypress has issues.

    Have you tried using the thematic development release? You can find it over at Chris's site. Suppose it's worth a shot while you wait to get some more definitive answers from someone who is actively using buddypress/buddymatic.

    Thanks for the link - I'll take a look.

    I have a little more info on this problem - the redirection to the home page only happens in Firefox - I noticed that in IE I get 404 not found instead. I'll try searching around for that.
