Site Wide Activity shows wrong blog post author

    I created a number of users for the default blog, let’s say User 1 (admin), User 2 (administrator) and User 3 (contributor). Next I write 3 posts, post 1 attributed to User 1, post 2 attributed to User 2 and post 3 attributed to User 3.

    * Widget ”Site Wide Activity” lists blog activity incorrectly. Post 2 and 3, while written by User 2 and 3, are displayed as written by User 1. “User 1 wrote a new post abcd” where it should have been “User 2/User 3 wrote a new post abcd”.

    * Widget ”Recent Blog Posts” does list the activity correctly (by author from the blog xxx)

    The erroneous behavior continues on the ”my activity” tab on the user profile. The blog posts are lists on User 1′s profile and missing on that of User 2 and User 3 respectively.

    Can anyone confirm this behavior and provide some pointers for a fix?

    Did users 1, 2, and 3 each publish the posts or did user 1 publish all of them and attribute the second and third posts to the other users? I believe there’s a bug in buddyPress where whoever actually publishes a post (or approves a comment) is considered the author, not the attributed author or commenter. I’m running code from a few weeks ago so some of this may be corrected in the latest trunk (I’m upgrading now) but as of the files I’m running this was a bug.

    @gogoplata – that’s exactly the case.

    All posts were created and published by admin (User 1) but assigned to User 2 or User 3 respectively so this fits the case you describe perfectly.

    I am running the December 15 “Combo” distribution – so if possible, please let me know this is fixed after you upgrade.

    Just tested and this is still present in the latest revision. I’ll make a ticket.
