Activity posting does not work …

  • Profile photo of flemmingbjerke


    When a post is sent, nothing happens. Except that phrase turn up above the text field: “Please enter some content to post”. Inserting some new text, gives the same result. Looking at the code:

    function bp_dtheme_post_update() { ……….
    if ( empty( $_POST ) ) {
    echo ‘-1

    ‘ . __( ‘Please enter some content to post.’, ‘buddypress’ ) . ‘

    return false;
    Apparently, when $_POST is empty, this happens. But, in activity/post-form.php, the textfield variable is “whats-new”. So, I guess there should be some way that $_POST is turned into $_POST??? In any case, the textfield is not saved and does not turn up anywhere.

    When an activity update is posted, the function bp_activity_post_form_action in wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-activity/bp-activity-templatetags.php is called. This function sends defines:

    function bp_get_activity_post_form_action() {
    return apply_filters( ‘bp_get_activity_post_form_action’, site_url( BP_ACTIVITY_SLUG . ‘/post’ ) );

    BP_ACTIVITY_SLUG is just the url of the activity ( To this url I added /post, and I tried it in the browser. I got the extremely informative error: “Are you sure you want to do this?” Now, I guessed, it would work without the /post-ending … and it did. (I had deactivated a number of plugins, but now they are activated again).

    What versions of WordPress, BuddyPress are you using? What theme and plugins are you using?

    Looks like you could of modified some textarea ID’s because thats the only reason that I could think of that that could happen.

    Unless your running a 3rd party plugin.

    Thank you, it turned out to be the plugin bp-tinymce that made the problems. The activity/post/ issue was a haphazard.

    wordpress: 3.1.2
    buddypress: 1.2.8
