    Hi there,

    I am using Activity Stream in Groups.

    The filter is showing “Topics” and “Replies” in the filter twice. I have spoken to bbPress who advised to speak to yourselves. I have tried the Twenty Seventeen theme and it still shows.

    Can someone please help?

    Hi there Varun,

    I did as you said and the problem was still there using only Buddypress and bbPress. Any other suggestions?

    I cannot duplicate your issue. Try switching to a WP theme such as 2019 and see if the issue persists.

    Hi there Shane.

    I have tried the Twenty Seventeen and Twenty Nineteen theme and it still shows. I can provide a staging site and admin credentials if you like? I have a screenshot available but cant see a way to attach it to this message.

    Thank you for your help

    Is anyone able to help at all?

    Hi Adekunle. I have tried that on all my browsers and still receiving the same duplicate topics and replies. Any other ideas?

    Thank you

    @shonty Is this a new installation or is this an old install where you changed from another theme or imported forums from e.g. phpbb to bbPress, etc.?

    Just like shanebp, I cannot replicate the issue as well.
    Do provide more info about your installation – https://buddypress.org/support/topic/when-asking-for-support-2/

    Hi there Mercime.

    My site is more than six months old. So it is not new. My theme is the same age. I have not imported any forums.

    Please try to supply answers to the following questions.

    Wordpress Version – 5.4.1
    Buddypress Version – 5.1.2
    bbPress Version – 2.6.4
    Host – Wordplus

    I dont know how long the problem has been there as I never noticed it.

    As mentioned above I can give access to a staging site for you to see. Even if anyone knows how to hide the duplicates I would be grateful.

    Thank you

    @shonty try to disable server-level cache once, might be object or varnish cache is creating some issue.

    Hi there… I’m experiencing the same problem ie. bbPress Topics and Replies are showing twice in the Activity filters.

    Just a hunch but I’ve just upgraded from considerably older versions of BuddyPress and bbPress so wondering if there was some kind of data conversion in an interim version which I’ve missed.

    OP did you ever find a fix/solution?

    @shonty

    Hi Nik,

    No solution found, although I would love one. My duplicates are in Buddypress Groups Activity, so I’ve disabled groups unless a solution comes along.

    Hi shonty

    Thank you for getting back to me although sorry to hear you’re still looking for an answer.

    Just out of curiousity, do you have a general activity feed where the filters are working OK (ie. no duplicates)? And what about on individual profiles?

    In my case, the issue seems to be appearing across the board (ie. for all activity feeds) but if it’s only appearing on some feeds for you, that just might be a hint/something worth investigating.

    I’ll definitely be looking into this further and will let you know if I find anything of interest.

    Hi Nik,

    It’s across the board for me also. if I find a solution. I’ll let you know also and thank you.

    OK I’ve done a little further investigation and this seems to be an issue with Buddypress Legacy only.

    If your theme allows you to switch to Buddypress Nouveau (go to Settings – Buddypress – Options) this should fix the problem.

    If for some reason you can’t switch to Nouveau, the clue is in the difference between the two versions but I’ll need to do some further investigation to see exactly what’s happening and/or how to make the filter work as expected in Buddypress Legacy.

    @shonty

    Nice one Nik. My theme won’t let me change from Buddypress Legacy. I select Nouveau, click Save Settings and Legacy is still there. I’ll do some digging around to. Thanks for sharing:)

    Hi shonty

    Unfortunately I have the same problem with the theme I’m currently using but I tested my theory by switching to the Twenty Twenty theme and then changing to Nouveau and sure enough, the filter is showing correctly.

    I’m going to need to find a better fix myself so will continue to investigate further and report back.

    All good Nik,

    You’re on to something though.

    I’m trying to find the template in FileZilla and see if I can adjust it in there. as I’m thinking it’s being told to show twice as in my screenshot when I inspect the source. See pic.

    I’m unfortunately not that clever yet and don’t want to screw it up so this might take a while.


    Nik

    @nikbond

    Good luck… although unfortunately I think you’ll find it’s not as simple as editing a template since the filters are generated by built-in functions rather than being hard coded in the way you are seeing in your screenshot 😉

    You could probably just hide it using CSS like so

    .buddypress #activity-filter-by option:nth-last-child(-n+2){
        display:none;
    }

    Though I’d recommend finding the flaw and correcting it rather than just hiding it.


    Nik

    @nikbond

    @clickallco… that’s certainly one option but not the way I personally prefer to do things 😉

    @shonty

    Thank you clickallco,

    I have applied your CSS which works beautifully. Will watch this topic should the fix come along one day:)
