    BuddyPress is out !!!

    http://buddypress.org/

    BuddyPress will transform a vanilla installation of WordPress MU into a social network platform.

    What do you mean "BuddyPress is out !!!"?
    Finished and ready to use or...?

    There is code in the repository, and it's been opened to the public now. Other than that, it says nothing of a release, nor is there a download for the group of plugins.

    Straight from Andy, here is the latest.

    There isn't a release yet, still lots of development to be done.

    You can check out the latest development copy from the SVN repo:

    svn co http://svn.buddypress.org/trunk

    You can check that out directly to the mu-plugins folder, or copy the contents into the mu-plugins folder of your MU installation.

    Obviously this is still in active development so don't expect it to work correctly until specific components are declared complete. You can keep up to date with bugs (and report them!) at: http://trac.buddypress.org

    You should be accessing it with a subversion client like http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ (for windows).

    For anyone else having BuddyPress installation issues I wrote up a detailed blog post on the proper steps to installing BuddyPress here:

    I'm using the most recent trunk for Buddy Press and I'm installing it on WPMu 2.6.5 (a test site) at http://blogpeoria.org

    For some reason, the stylesheets don't seem to be loading when I go into the Members area. I've tried it in different browsers.

    Any ideas?

    Yes, check your permissions settings. I had this same problem and posted in the BuddyPress forums. Andy responded with this:

    It's entirely permissions. Make sure everything in the theme and any JS/CSS in buddypress is 755.

    See if that works.

    OK ... I did that. All theme files and JS/CSS files are now 755. Same problem.

    When I look at tghe page source, I see the following

    <link rel='stylesheet' href='http://blogpeoria.org/wp-content/mu-plugins/bp-core/css/structure.css?ver=2.6.5' type='text/css' media='' />

    	<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://blogpeoria.org/wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />

    I tracked every single CSS file mentioned here. All are now set to 755.

    I have done this. I just got done manually checking every single file folder withinbuddypress-member/css/

    Is it possible I have this folder in the wrong location?

    I have it located in `/public_html/wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member/css/'

    The problem is, this is returning a 404, and it shouldn't be:

    The folder is in the right location.

    It's right there. I just now deleted it and uploaded again, with the same 404 message and with style sheets not working.

    emergency averted.

    I contacted tech support and they set the permissions correctly. I still do not know why I could not do it via file manager in Cpanel or File Zilla.
