David Cavins replied to the topic The username I wanted to hide is seen in the messaging in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 9 months, 2 weeks ago
The username is used extensively through BuddyPress, so I don’t know how it can be kept a secret. (For instance, it’s used for the user’s profile page url at
I don’t think you can hide the username entirely, since the BP messaging and mention system is built on the username, but you could probably change out…[Read more]
On what hook are you firing that function? Are you using the Legacy or Nouveau template pack? (Have you changed from the Legacy to Nouveau template pack recently?)
It could be a number of things, but my first thought is that there’s no reason to be changing the groups nav when you’re in the middle of the create routine, so maybe there’s a more…[Read more]
David Cavins replied to the topic Displayed user user-nicename in profile activity tab name in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 9 months, 3 weeks ago
That’s pretty old code you’ve found. We have a new API for that:
The example “Changing the name of the Unread subnav item of the user’s Notifications nav menu” is pretty close to what you’re looking for. If you want to add the displayed user’s display name, this is close:

David Cavins replied to the topic How can I remove margin and padding from buddypress activity stream list in the forum Creating & Extending 9 months, 3 weeks ago
That really depends on your theme. You can use your browser’s inspector to see what CSS rules are causing the layout, then override them by adding custom rules to your site via the customizer or by using a child theme.

Various email services filter for spam in different ways, and it can be a real trick to get the activation mail to be delivered. I’ve had good luck using an API mailer like SendGrid or similar, where you can set up all the extra email supporting stuff like DKIM and SPF. Several of the popular API mailers have WP plugins, so that’s one way you can…[Read more]
I suspect the problem is with your modal-based login. Try TwentyNineteen temporarily to see if the issue persists.
It sounds like you may have to disable the BP no access redirect with your theme.
David Cavins replied to the topic BuddyPress – Profile Field – Open Link in New Window in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 9 months, 3 weeks ago
Well, you’ll have to be sure that the “Profile Field URL” field has the id of 6 on your installation. On your site, visit the Profile Fields admin at Wp Admin > Users > Profile Fields (
/wp-admin/users.php?page=bp-profile-setup) and hover over the “Edit” button for the field you want to affect. The link will look something like
Hi, feel free to look at the source code where BP calls PHPMailer:
As you can see, unless you are using a plugin that is injecting an older version of PHPMailer on the
bp_phpmailer_objectfilter, BP is using the PHPMailer class included in the WP…[Read more]
That’s interesting. With the Legacy template, the activity stream is built and served as part of the page, so it sounds like a theme display issue. Can you try your site with a basic theme like TwentyNineteen to see if the issue persists?
David Cavins replied to the topic How to: Distinguish Woocommerce costumers and BuddyPress members? in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 9 months, 4 weeks ago
It sounds like you are wanting user who register via WooCommerce to appear as members on the members directory in BP. What you’ll have to do is add a
last_activitymeta item for those users when they register, so that BP will include them in user queries. I’m not knowedgable about Woo, but something like this might…[Read more]
David Cavins replied to the topic I have a bit of a conundrum I'm trying to solve, can you help? in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 9 months, 4 weeks ago
That sounds like a big project. You’ll need to work with a knowledgable developer (or become one yourself) to solve it.
David Cavins replied to the topic Send Email reminder to user when user is not responded friendship request in the forum Installing BuddyPress 9 months, 4 weeks ago
You’d have to write some custom code to add that functionality. (That’s beyond the scope of the support forum.) I’m guessing that you could add a WP Cron job that fetches old friendship requests and send the notifications again, but it would take some work on your part. You can see how the initial request email is sent…[Read more]
Are you using the Legacy or Nouveau template set? If you are using Nouveau, the activity items are loaded via AJAX, so there could be a delay if your server doesn’t respond quickly to the AJAX request, but there should be a box that says “loading the activity items or similar”.
Please also test this problem with a basic theme like TwentyNineteen,…[Read more]
Appears to be a false alarm.
We are using the PHPMailer class that is included in WordPress. In WP latest stable release (5.2.4) the version of PHPMailer is 5.2.22 and in 5.3 it’s 5.2.27. The problematic PHPMailer versions are < 5.2.20.
