Messages bug ?
I just logged into testbp.org
I went to “My Profile” > “Messages” > “Compose”.
Then being at the field named “Send to” I am writing for example the name “andy peatling” or just “andy p”
Then I can see a short info-message named “Loading”. But: nothing happens.
Do you guys see the same strange behaviour ?
So how to select someone to send a message to ?
BTW: I am using the latest version of FireFox-browser.
Autocomplete only works for friends, if you are not friends you must type their username.
– so why does it still say “loading” then ?
– it is hard to figure out that I have to type the username (I guess users are just being lost at that field…..well I was at least….)
I think the send-to flied should validate on Name BP from “Base Profile” as well for friend or non-friend, of coz, it should preserve auto-completion for friend only.
Most user change to their Full name or nickname, non-friend user usually try to compose to a user’s Full name but can’t be validated.
Example: if I want to send a message to a “web admin” which shown in member list, however his/her username is admin1.. it’s quite confusing when they try to type in “web admin” on send-to field but got a error.
I do not understand why simple things like a “send-to field” are being made more complicated than they actually are ?
Why not just create a simple drop-down-field with all names of friends ?
