I finally took the plunge and installed buddypress on my site – Two problems immeidately arose:
1. I created a private group and asked one of my friends to register so that i could add her. When i tried to add her (as per your video) i got an error message saying basically that the user can not be added to the group. I tried with several more users and the same thing happens. Any suggestions?
2. SPAM!!! Since i activated the plugin I have had too many spam registrations to count. I have akismet installed but this does not seem to help at all. Can you suggest an effective remedy?
