[Resolved] “Notifications” Permalink Bug

  • Dylan Ryan


    Hey BuddyPress team!

    This is Dylan from The WP Valet and I think we’ve found quiet a strange bug on our client’s site.

    I’ll cover how to replicate the bug, then provide all the debug information.

    • Create a topic with a title of “Notifications” (this also works with “Notifications X Y Z…)
    • Visit the BuddyPress toolbar and choose Notifications -> Unread
    • This should bring you to your topic created instead of your actual unread notifications.

    We noticed this was happening when there were two separate slugs that started with /notifications-x-y-z

    After deleting the first /notifications, the second /notifications-x-y-z topic would start showing up when visiting unread notifications.

    On to the debug information. 🙂
