[Resolved] comments are not showing – only "replied" in "My Groups"
In the “My Groups” stream I see updates from open and private groups I belong to. If I comment on any post from a private group (showing in “My Groups”) I only see the word “replied”. If I then refresh the “My Groups” stream the comment shows up. Any suggestion how to fix this?
You can see variations of this issue here:
I see you encountered and posted about a similar issue. Did you ever manage to resolve it? Are you able to replicate the issue I’m seeing? It’s also manifesting in other streams where private group updates show up. Sorry for tagging you but I’m desperate.
can you provide the theme name please ?
Private groups activities is not public, until YOU are logged in. As a member of a private group you see those activities.
If it is not displaying correctly, maybe try to activate 2013 or 2014 theme. Could also be a cookie issue: when you see “my groups” you are on your profile. It is not the same loop as for the group activity, at first. Reviewing your blog settings maybe usefull too. Or seeking for JS errors on the one or other page ?
Another thing to consider is explained here:
Thanks for getting back to me @danbp. I’m using the theme “SocialBuddy” mostly but I have tested this on different themes/versions of Buddypress/versions of WordPress as well as different servers – dedicated and shared and the result is the same everywhere so it appears to be a bug.
I would be curious to know if you could replicate this:
1) Inside a PRIVATE group add a status update and then comment on this update. (or add a few comments). All good so far.
2) Now go to “My Groups” feed and you will see your status update as well as the comments. Try comment on any of the comments and see if they post correctly.
For me these comments only show up once I have refreshed the page.
Turns out it’s long standing issue: “Stop using hide_sitewide for privacy purposes” https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3857
Any suggested work around in the mean time?
Tried all kind of things, i’m unable to reproduce your issue. Anything is appearing correctly, without having to refresh the page.
If you consider it’s a bug, report it on the trac.
Thanks for confirming the bug @shanebp
I can also report that the same bug is manifesting in the “My Favorites” and “Mentions” streams in the same way that it does in “My Groups” – only the word “replied” appears.
Amend the ticket with the new manifestations.
Use the same login/pw you use here.
The core devs may not see this thread.
@shanebp I tried but my login is not letting me edit. Please be so kind as to amend it when you get a chance. Many Thanks.
Did you try adding a comment rather than editing the ticket?
Actually, its not even letting me log in. Bizarre.

I cannot replicate those issues.
Re ‘My Groups': Fixed. Thanks to @r-a-y
Hopefully it will make it into 2.1
Thanks @shanebp and thanks @r-a-y Your fix definitely works with latest version of WordPress and Buddypress (tested) but I have a couple of sites with an older WordPress (because some plugins I’m using are not yet compatible with recent WordPress) and this fix does not work there. Any suggestions for a fix with older WordPress?
The patch has not much to do with wp.
Depending of the BP version you use on the old sites, you can use the fix !
Compare the buddypress-functions.php and if you find a line similar to the one alreadyfixed, you can try to use the patch.
Aside it could not work, there is nothing to loose to try!
@namrons – If you are using the older bp-default theme or a deriviative of the bp-default theme on your other sites, you’ll need to patch bp-default as well.
I’ve added the fix for the bp-default theme here:
