Bug : Site wide activity widget + permalinks

    Hi guys,

    I found another bug today.

    The site wide widget is using the wrong dates in the links to blogs. Its using todays date or probably the date the blog entry was posted. (i will know more tomorrow).

    Problem being, some of our entries were back dated (we manually set a date in the past). Therefore when you click on the link it doesn’t work.

    My permalink structure is the day / month one i think. E.g. : /%day%/%month%/%year%/%post_name%/ …. i think.

    Problem is:

    its linking to blog posts as

    /09/03/2009/post_name/

    when it should be linking to

    /25/01/2007/post_name/ – which was the date we set in the post.

    Thanks oldskoo1, you seem to be fortunate in this bug hunting expedition you’re on recently. Good thing we don’t have ‘bag limits’ here. I think I’ll suggest to Andy that bp start passing out day-glo hunting caps with the bp logo on them.

    :D Cheers

    As part of my job i’m responsible for implementing software solutions, most of it web based. So i guess you could say i’m used to finding bugs with systems when signing off projects.

    However, i do also know it can be incredibly frustrating to team members that the constant bombardment of new bugs can be overwhelming when they already have enough on their plates.

    I’m testing every part of the BP system because i think its a superb bit of software and i want to launch a site on it for a hobby of mine in my spare time. I’m probably finding more bugs than normal because i’m hacking it around a little bit and trying to customise it.

    I read something that went something like this:

    Programmers don’t work on new software or new features until all the reported bugs get fixed in the old stuff.

    Good incentive to fix things and just a good model for good development practices. I did speak to Andy about the hunting caps. He’s all for it.

    Well i think i should add that with my permalink structure the same problem applies to the profile page too.

    You have a recent activity bit on the profile page and the blog links are also linking incorrectly.

    However there is an additional bug, its using “you” in the link instead of the members name for the url, obviously this only happens when a member views their own page.

    its doing something like this

    http://URL/you/2009/03/11/post_name/ – where “you” should be the members own URL and of course the date is also wrong, its picking up the date of when the post was created, not when it was dated (as in my case we are posting and setting the date in the past).

    Cheers

    Let me make sure we are looking at the same code. You are on RC1?

    Rev 870 is: “Fixing incorrect use of “You” when viewing a person’s empty activity stream.”

    That may or may not be what you are talking about in one issue mentioned above. Can you post these things in trac please?

    http://trac.buddypress.org/

    There has been a fix come thru svn for the custom permalink problem: http://trac.buddypress.org/search?q=1188

    Hi,

    Yes i downloaded and installed RC1, i merged my existing templates and found the usual errors like missing functions and hidden form field values.

    However as you have mentioned it, leave it with me i’ll make sure i haven’t done anything silly.

    Also, is the trunk the live SVN code? If so would the fix for permalinks be available now?

    I take it the trunk is just ongoing bug fixes and new features are frozen or branched, so it should be safe to use?

    Thanks burtadsit

    The fix for the permalinks is in the live SVN code (aka trunk) oldskoo1.
