Yes, the comments display on the posts, the only issue is the display names and avatars are not displaying in the site activity IE the very first sentence of my very first post:
“Comments from non-members are displaying on the front end and I verified it’s still recording activity for guest comments correctly in the DB, but the user’s name and avatar are no longer appearing on the front end on buddypress 2.0.2.”
There’s obviously an issue with the way this is being queried that worked in prior versions but doesn’t work in this version. Again, I’m just not familiar enough with the core to figure out what that is.
“it’s almost impossible that the plugin does not work with BP”
“with over 2.000 downloads and only one support question, this plugin work’s for 99.9% of it users. I guess.”
Well don’t know what to tell you other than it doesn’t. The plugin wasn’t updated after updates to buddypress and has become non-functional, which is why I posted this thread to see if anyone more knowledgeable with the core code than I could easily decipher why.
I appreciate the links to gravatar integration, but they don’t address the topic of this thread.
The issue is with the way the above code is grabbing member names and email addresses. The plugin has all guest users’ activity being stored under an arbitrary Userid 0, then cross matches that activity with the meta data for the guests’ post from comments and formats for display on the front end.
For some reason, it no longer does that I just can’t pinpoint what’s going wrong.
I will note the desired functionality would be for non-members to have gravatars generated on the front end based on the email addresses they entered while submitted a comment as a guest.
I’d love to see this thing forked and maintained and agree it would probably be very popular.
It would also be very cool to have a option added in a member’s profile settings to turn on/off the profanity filter while they view the site.
I’ve been using this plugin for a long, long, time to help with both development and member support:
It’s a very cool little piece of code that might be exactly what you’re looking for.
Hope that helps.
