Comment on private groups updates in Activity Stream not displaying correctly on 1.6

  • Avatar of k12onos



    I’m using WP 3.4.1 and BuddyPress 1.6.

    in the Activity stream page, when a user post a comment to a status/update, it is supposed to load the comment automatically without refresh, right?

    In my case, the new comment did ‘seem’ to appear below the status, but it only shows

    Reply Delete
    (exactly like this)

    So the avatar, username and comment content are not displayed.

    Though it looks normal once I refreshed the page, I’m concerned that this will make user confused. I have tried changing back to the BP default theme, but the same thing still happens.

    I’m not sure where to start troubleshooting?

    Can anyone advise me on which areas should I take a look? Then maybe I can give more information to pinpoint what causes the problem. Thank you :)

    Hi k12onos, it’s weird you say you get this with the default theme as well. Could you provide a link perhaps to se this on your site – I understand it may not be live though.

    Just as a check, are you using any plugins on top of BuddyPress? If you are have you made sure they are also updated for BuddyPress 1.6? I’m thinking there perhaps could be a scripting error from those.

    Hi, I disabled all my plugins but the same thing still happens.

    BUT, I managed to find more information. This happens only on status updates on Private Group.

    So is it possible that it’s something like, the BuddyPress didn’t check for the user’s permission when the ajax comment is posted, so when the comments are posted it is treated as “hidden/private” to the person posting it?

    It’s a wild guess, but can someone with private groups & BuddyPress 1.6 help confirm this? I’m wondering if it’s just me or does it affect everyone.

    Hi, I managed to recreate the problem on a new install.

    This happens when commenting on updates of a private group in the activity stream. It does not affect hidden groups updates though.

    Should I submit a bug report?
