Site-wide recent blog widget is still farked
I posted this message about week ago, and the thread was closed without asking me:
I have been consistently having issues with the Recent Blogs Widget. It will work fine for days, then the list of Recently Updated blogs go missing from my blogs and when I check out the widget page for these blogs, this is what I see:
`%BEG_OF_TITLE%Recent Blog Posts%END_OF_TITLE% ‘
I delete the file bp-blogs.php file from the mu-plugins folder and the error message vanishes. Sometimes an hour later, sometimes a day later, I can upload bp-blogs.php and all is well again.
And when it errors out on one blog, it errors on on ALL blogs using it.
I am running it on primepress theme, WPMu 2.7 and BuddyPress RC-1.
I’ve been having this problem for weeks, previous attempts to get some help for this proved fruitless.
The problem vanished right after I posted this.
So the entry was closed.
This is a intermittent and recurring problem. It comes and goes. I have no explanation why. When it happens, ever single blog using the plug in shows the error message mentioned above.
I’m going to solve the problem mentioned above by simply giving up on Buddy Press. It showed potential. But the it was impossible to work with because:
1. Requests for help are often ignored.
2. It is impossible to ask for help because the the requests CANNOT BE POSTED ON THE MALFUNCTIONING MESSAGE BOARD.
I mean, seriously? Automattic OWNS bbPress. How does it work out that they fix their own product? I understand what Beta version means, but I cannot understand why Automattic cannot fix a malfunctioning bbPress forum that they own.
I’ll come back when there’s a final version.
If this message will not post here, I’ll post in on mu.wordpress.org.
And I full expect the routine lecture about how this is open source, run by volunteers, etc.
