Profile link takes me to a thread?

  • sitwi


    Using: Buddypress 2.4.3, bbPress 2.5.8, WordPress 4.4

    Theme is Trendyblog.

    bbPress plugins: bbPress-WP-tweaks, bbPress toolbox


    This is bizarre – most links to profiles on my website ego direct to he use profile as expected. In some cases though, where the user in mentioned in a topic name, the links foes to the topic instead of the profile.

    For example:

    A.J.’s profile link works correctly:
    My profile, though, redirects to a topic:

    The only thing I can think of is that both pages redirect to a topic that specifically mentions the user’s name. Could this be the cause, and how do I get around it?

    Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this, please?

    Thanks for your time.

    interesting problem

    the link resolves to

    so the sending page – eg a forum page correctly links to where it thinks the profile is. Something in between then redirects the url to the result.

    I’d suggest it is probably theme or plugin related.

    As a test :


    Deactivate all but bbpress and buddypress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error. If not try bbpress on it’s own.


    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentytwelve, and see if this fixes.

    Then come back

    The problem does not seem to be your profile ( is accessible) but your ‘Activity > Personal’ ! The standard link /members/si tries to show the personal activity and that is not possible in your case, but it works fine for the 2 other members.

    But I have no clue where to fix that !
