#4882: Updating Permalinks Breaks Navigation
 Reporter:  beeeerock     |      Owner:
     Type:  defect (bug)  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  Core          |    Version:  1.7-beta
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 1.7Beta2.  Unzipped download into plugins directory of a simple site using
 P2 Theme.  Activated plugin.  Went to Settings, BuddyPress and see the
 three tabbed screen for configuring BuddyPress.  At the top I see, with a
 yellow background: "BuddyPress is almost ready. You must update your
 permalink structure to something other than the default for it to work."

 I should note, the P2 site was working and had two pages.  Menu functioned
 fine with the default permalink structure.  At this point, with BP just
 activated, BP menu additions are present and link without error to the new
 (blank) pages.  However, they ''are'' blank pages and there is no expected
 content ('register' for instance should have something registration-
 related one would assume!), so BP is not functioning, as the yellow
 warning would suggest.

 Selecting a different permalink structure and saving removes the yellow
 warning from the top, but after a refresh I get 404 errors from the menu
 items (all except the original 'blog' which is a 'custom' item in the menu
 configuration page).

 It should be noted that this is an intranet site, called 'testblog'.  DNS
 internally knows to direct 'testblog' requests to this server.  So the web
 browser address simply shows 'testblog/wordpress/' for the home blog page.
 I don't know if this somehow breaks the permalink structure, or if
 something else must be done to make it work on an existing P2 site.  Or P2
 breaks it.

 Not other plugins running, except akismet.
