Notifications tab seems to break site
If you are using bp-default or a child theme there are some issues with notifications display. Please give at least 24 hours for a fix for this issue.
@modemlooper okay no problem..I am using a child theme…thx for the quick response!
I’m having the same issue (using a child theme). Thank you so much for working on this!
I also use a child theme. I went to BuddyPress 1.9 and I was told that I notfications 139. By clicking above, they do not appear, it gives me my profile page doubled.
Same issue as I’ve posted here: http://buddypress.org/support/topic/buddypress-1-9-bp-default-theme-or-child-themes-notifications/
@brice-emry yep thats right…you actually did a better job describing the issue…i get double profile as well.
Those with page doubling, can you switch to the parent bp-default to test if it’s a child theme issue or bp-default in general?
From my other thread, it affects bp-default as well (even with a fresh install):
@modemlooper yeah I just swiched and it doubled the profile but shifted the page to the right and placed side widgets to the bottom of page.
There will be a 1.9.1 put out quickly to address this.
The reason this is happening is because bp-default was deprecated with this release of BuddyPress and the notifications templates are not included in bp-default. This is your warning to phase bp-default out of your sites. BuddyPress works with almost any theme now so your options are plenty.
Indeed notifications appears well with Twenty-Twenty-twelve and fourteen, except with my theme (parent and child)
In addition, there should be a button to select all notifications and delete a group, instead of doing it one by one.
Thanks, @modemlooper! I appreciate the work you’ve been doing here.
@modemlooper I’m waiting to hear back from my theme author but is there something I can do to make my theme more compatible with the new buddypress or will I have to use a different theme. Thanks in advance!!!
Template files for notifications missing and will be included in next update.
following this thread and also installing trunk – current trunk 7705 on trial local installs
with bp default / or a child
in a Members Profile
Editing ‘Base’ Profile Group is repeated 14 times
just reporting – i think also a similar experience to @mdpane when i click notifications if at 0 (why click it when it is at 0 is another question altogether!)
Thanks for all your help over the years.
Editing ‘Base’ Profile Group is not repeated on an online install with same themes/plugin and wp 3.8 and bp 1.9
So my report is not really reliable.
The online experience with notifications is however as previously reported with respect to local installs.
all now appears good (in local installs – no repeats etc – notifications dont upset the page etc) with trunk 7709.
Same problem here with a childtheme ! if there is anything i can do to figureout why its not working, i would be glad to help
@Trashfunkel – This MAY (or may not) help
My difficulty was primarily self generated – (in case somebody else has done the same)
This is about bp default and child themes (i know it is being phased out but i presume many are still in use)
Even with trunk 7709 some of my local installs still had page disruption with notifications.
I eventually worked out that this was because the “child theme” i was using was actually a modified bp default theme and not a proper child theme at all and was based on an earlier bp default theme.
Once i based it on the CURRENT bp default theme everything behaved properly.
Same issue with a child theme…someone has a solution ?
Hi, please tell me how to create buddypress notifications template as it is also missing in my theme ? thanks
Look in your themes for the template file:
If that exists, and is from an older theme, look for a “notification” section in there. If it’s missing this will break the loading of your notifications page.
In this section:
do_action( 'bp_before_member_body' );
After this line:
elseif ( bp_is_user_forums() ) : bp_get_template_part( 'members/single/forums' );
elseif ( function_exists('bp_is_user_notifications') && bp_is_user_notifications() ) : bp_get_template_part( 'members/single/notifications' );
That allows the profile to load the notification template.
@buddyboss – You’re a genius…
We were getting a double menu when engaging the Notifications tab. It was driving me nuts. By the way, if you are part of BuddyBoss reach out to me at brettbuchanandesign-at-gmail.com.
We really wanted to use your theme with rtMedia. I wanted to see if BuddyBoss was compatible yet. Or if rtMedia was compatible with you…
