I have the latest versions of Wordpress, BuddyPress and rtMedia. This happened after I updated both WP, BP, rtMedia and a bunch of other plugins pretty much at the same time, so I don’t even know where to start looking.


As a rule of thumb, if it’s a display issue, look at the theme. If it’s a broken issue, look at the plugins! :slight_smile:

Try switching to TwentyFifteen as your theme. If it works there, it’s a theme issue.
