Messaging Functionality Not Working.

  • dan.imbrogno


    1. Running WPMU: 2.7.1

    2. Installed as a directory

    3. In the root

    4. This is a fresh install from scratch

    5. WPMU was functioning properly before installing/upgrading BuddyPress?

    6. Running Buddypress: 1.0

    7. No plugins active

    8. Using custom buddypress theme

    9. not running bbpress

    10. na

    The messaging functionality on my install of buddypress is no longer working. I’ve been trying to track down the issue, and I think I’ve identified it, but I’m not sure how to go about fixing it, or why it is occurring in the first place.

    You can view the problem here:

    If you friend someone, then try to send them a message, the message form simply resets. This seems to be because $_POST[‘send_to_usernames’] is always empty in the function messages_screen_compose() inside bp-messages.php.

    I’m not sure why this is coming up empty even when you select a member from the auto-complete list.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks!

    Hi Andy, thanks for your quick response. I’ve identified the issue, it was really quite simple.

    I built my theme of of the bpskeletonmember theme that was included with my download.

    In the file messages/compose.php , the compose message form is:

    <form action="<?php bp_messages_form_action('compose') ?>" method="post" id="send-message-form" class="standard-form">

    When it should be

    <form action="<?php bp_messages_form_action('compose') ?>" method="post" id="send_message_form" class="standard-form">

    The subtle difference being, the form id having underscores instead of hyphens.
