Fatal error on a BuddyPress 2.6.0 upgrade

    @jason75

    Hello – I have the latest WordPress version installed along with the latest Woffice theme update. However when I update buddypress to the latest version 2.6.0 the whole site breaks and this error appears:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_get_current_group_id() in /home/.../public_html/.../wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-groups/classes/class-bp-group-extension.php on line 484

    Any thoughts?
    I’am able to get the site working again, when I restore to a saved backup…
    Thanks

  • Is this error appearing on all pages of a site (on front-end) or only in admin area where you are upgrading?
    Woffice is a premium theme from themeforest, so we can’t test that. The issue might be in the way hooks are used in a theme, so you might want to contact them.

    Hello, I had exactly the same problem, with the theme “KLEO” (seventhqueen).

    If it can helps someone, the problem was caused by the plugin “Buddypress Cover Photo”. I fixed it by changing the first line in the file /plugins/buddypress-cover-photo/group-cover.php :

    if ( class_exists( 'BP_Group_Extension' ) ) :

    by

    if ( class_exists( 'BP_Group_Extension' ) && bp_is_active('groups') ) :

    (It’s my first post on this forum, so I wanted to say that Buddypress is a great plugin, good work guys !)

    Thanks for sharing, @syborg!

    @jason75,
    Could you please test the solution above with your theme?

    Also, @jason75 and @syborg – as you are owners of that Kleo theme, could you please contact Kleo authors with this thread information? They should test their theme with the latest BuddyPress 2.6.

    Hmm, it looks like class autoloading is causing this trouble.

    I’ll try to duplicate this locally.

    I posted a topic on the Buddypress Cover Photo support forum, on wordpress.org. (Same authors as KLEO theme and support forum so easier to access). Bye !

    Can somebody try this patch in bp-loader.php?

    This helped me A LOT! Solved my error. Got it from:

    If you’re like me and have buddypress groups turned off, this will produce the error shown. I fixed by adding this to

    /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-groups/classes/class-bp-group-extension.php

    change:

    $group_id = bp_get_current_group_id();

    to:

    $group_id = (bp_is_active('groups') ? bp_get_current_group_id() : '');

    and change:

    if ( empty( $group_id ) && bp_get_new_group_id() ) {
        $group_id = bp_get_new_group_id();
    }

    to:

    if(bp_is_active('groups')) {
        if ( empty( $group_id ) && bp_get_new_group_id() ) {
            $group_id = bp_get_new_group_id();
        }
    }

    IMO, they should have tested this before pushing out an update. Hopefully they figure things out.

    I am getting a fatal error after upgrade to BP 2.6.0 as well. Upgraded to WP 4.5.3 yesterday, then BP 2.6.0 today. WP_Debug reports ‘Call to undefined function bp_loggedin_user_id()’ in my custom child theme (Canvas parent theme) functions.php file. I tried the patch on bp-loader.php, r-a-y, but that was a no go for me. This is wiping out all front and back-end display on my local server. Fortunately, production is running WP 4.5.3 with BP 2.5.3, which is running fine. Still trying to debug…

    My particular problem was with the (ancient, but useful) plugin bp-group-hierarchy. The manual fix recommended in the post BuddyPress 2.6.0 “Espejo” is now available (found here: https://github.com/ddean4040/BP-Group-Hierarchy/pull/21/files) got me back up and running. Thanks!

    Thank you kaab321. Applied your suggested updates and the site is back online… Thanks again

    @kaab321 I think that the fix proposed by @r-a-y is more elegant and relevant. You should use it instead, if it works for you, of course.

    Thank you @r-a-y, I tried it and it works for me 🙂
    I’ve seen that it was an autoload problem, but my knowledge about the buddypress core is very limited :/ I preferred modify a plugin than dare to change directly a buddypress file.

    Hi, I am one of the guys behind Woffice. On Woffice seems that the problem is not a conflict with “Buddypress Cover Photo”, the issue happens also without the plugin if the component “groups” is disabled.

    So the solution proposed by @r-a-y doesn’t work for us, instead the solution proposed by @kaab321 solved the issue.

    @r-a-y

    @anth0ny167 or anyone else experiencing this problem, I’m convinced this is a problem with class autoloading that we introduced in BuddyPress 2.6.

    Although it helps, you shouldn’t need to add bp_is_active() checks that kaab321 recommended, the fact that you do means that it is a bug with BuddyPress.

    If you can duplicate your issue after using my proposed fix:
    https://gist.github.com/r-a-y/f54e7a07b71af1c7bfab6e06433da3d6

    Then, please let me know the steps on how I could replicate this on a fresh install if possible.

    @syborg has verified that this works.

    Also, the BP Group Hierarchy issue is not related to this one.

    I’ve duplicated the issue for plugins using code like this:

    add_action( 'bp_include', function() {
            if ( class_exists( 'BP_Group_Extension' ) ) {
                    class My_Group_Extension extends BP_Group_Extension {
                    }
    
                    bp_register_group_extension( 'My_Group_Extension' );
            }
    }, 99 );

    The BuddyPress Cover Photo plugin uses something similar to the above.

    I’ve opened a ticket with a fix to this specific problem:

    Hi,
    I have the same problem like “Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_get_current_group_id() in /home/…/public_html/…/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-groups/classes/class-bp-group-extension.php on line 484”. The solution given above can fixed the issue, but it is affecting when i am updating the plugin. So, how can i override this file inside the theme so that the change wont lose when i update the plugin buddypress.

    @rintusibi – If you’re referring to this fix:
    https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/7140/7140.01.patch

    This will be part of BuddyPress 2.6.1.
