I have the exact same problem but I am using the Buddypress Default theme – and I have never tinkered with the code.
I would be very grateful if anyone could give me an idea of what might be going on and how to fix it.
I deactivated all plugins. Nothing seems to change the problem. The reply box does appear very briefly and then disappears.
In case it’s any kind of clue, the text typed in the update box stays there after an update has been posted – it didn’t do that before either.
Thank you – however, I have changed to the default theme and the problem is the same. I don’t think it is the theme that is causing the problem.
Oh I have found the problem – it was my fault and I have fixed it. Sorry for being a little pain!
I have the same problem. I have disabled all plugins and changed themes. I have the latest version of bp-columns but I get the non-reply problem with that or the default theme.
The page refreshes, the reply box appears for a fraction of a second and then disappears. Can anyone help, please?
Oh – this may be an additional clue – when one enters a new update via the “What’s New” box a the top of the page, the update appears as normal, but the entered text remains in the entry box even after the page has refreshed and the update appears. This never happened before.
I am not certain as it was probably a little while before it was discovered, but I had done that thing of changing:
RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]
RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
In htaccess and renaming blogs.php – I know this should have been done long ago, but it caused various problems in the past (such as avatar pictures not showing in Firefox) so I had reverted to blogs.php again.
I also reverted after this problem started, but with no effect.
I have no idea if this is connected and tend to think it isn’t, but it is about the only change made around this time apart from installing the latest WordPress (I didn’t install the new Buddypress until after the problem started – and it didn’t cure it).
I cleared the cache and restarted Google Chrome and the same thing is happening.
This is exactly the same problem I have, I think. It is happening to all users on several browsers. I will try clearing the cache, but I have had the same problem trying the site on three different browsers and other users are reporting the problem.
Will clear the cache now and report back.
Some more information on this. I have the latest version of BP Columns (I re-installed it in case that was the problem). The Activity Stream does not naturally appear on the front page so I made a template to force it to do so – however this has been working fine for months and then the reply button just stopped working.
What happens when you hit “reply” on an Activity Stream item is that the page refreshes and the reply box appears very briefly and then vanishes. The address in the address bar is I believe the reply box address, eg [the-site]/?ac=5476/#ac-form-5476.
Can anyone please help with this problem?
