Preventing Double Submit? (Messages)

    Hi Everyone,

    I’ve been getting a bunch of duplicate messages because of impatient users clicking send more than once if the page doesn’t respond immediately. This has been haunting me on my “fix” list, because all the solutions I’ve seen are unrelated to BuddyPress or WordPress.

    Any help is always appreciated!

    WordPress Multisite 3.8.2, BuddyPress 1.9.2, Twenty Fourteen Theme, Competence; I can paste code but don’t understand it. Thanks!

    I’ve been suffering the same issue. WP 3.9 / BP 2.0
    A lot of users willing to sing up and post have been suffering this issue.
    No fix posted yet.

    I always get a double post, on comments/updates/anything involving a textbox in BuddyPress.

    Also get a page refresh anytime I attempt to comment in the activity feed when “Everybody” filter is enabled.

    Did you manage to fix your issue?
    Any insight would be great!

    Hi @NicholasDeSuza,

    No luck yet. My problem is caused by impatient users clicking the submit button multiple times if the page reload lags. The only solutions I’ve found are far in excess of my capabilities to implement.

    I did do a search for your situation and found in most cases it was related to a theme or plugin conflict. I hate recommending this, but it may worth switching to a default theme and shutting down none essential plugins to see if that’s it.

    Sorry this is out of curiosity… going to double click the submit to see if it happens here too.

    I *JUST* solved my issue by updating the outdated buddypress.css — but I don’t have the spam submit button issue. I’ll have to test that. I was getting double posts regardless everywhere a comment was contributed.

    Excellent! Glad to here it’s fixed.

    If you get a chance to test the double submit on your site, let me know how it turns out.

    When I tried to double submit here, it looks like bbPress had a failsafe to prevent it. See the screen shot here.

    So, does anyone know if there is a away to do something similar with BuddyPress or WordPress? Thanks!
