uhm… that’s not the patch I applied. This patch @mercime is suggesting is newer. It’s not always a good idea to use patches from upstream, there might be incompatibilities. Like you say, you don’t have all the files
I used the patch attached to the ticked: https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/4510/4510.patch
I suppose for now it’s ok to use the patch I used, in the new version of bp the patch will be included automatically.
@mercime I’m talking about the activity stream yes. Forgot to mention that
I know the plugin is old, I have to admit I did do some bug fixing here and there and applied recommendations of the theme-check plugin. Nothing big however, just moving from deprecated things to the new versions etc.
I’ve applied the patch @inkblot suggested and that seems to work perfectly after doing a full page refresh. Thanks
Thats great Chris!
I also experienced my first registered spammer today, while I already took some precautions.
I’ve installed https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stop-spammer-registrations-plugin/ to stop spammers from getting in. The most important plugin (imho) which is not available is new user moderation…
A lot of small communities also use buddypress, and for those communities I think it would be fantastic to have an option to hold new users for moderation.
This plugin: https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-registration-options/ was able to do that but hasn’t been updated in ages…
And that option will probably stop bad users from getting in, forever
