Post Update in groups sometimes hangs

  • brianbattenfeld


    Occasionally, the “post update” button will hang and won’t display the post content below when it successfully posts – instead nothing happens, and users are clicking the button again, resulting in posts coming through 2 or 3 times.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Buddypress – are there hooks, or a way via JS like a callback to take some sort of action when that button is pressed(display a message, hide the button etc). Leaving the button there without any state change or indication that the button was clicked or some process has been initiated is a bit clumsy and it’s becoming frustrating for my client’s users. Any thoughts or feedback are appreciated.

  • If you’re using BuddyPress Group Email Subscriptions, posting updates can take a long time because the plugin has to do a bunch of work to create the email notifications for all the group members. The devs are working to resolve the issue, but my crystal ball says that’s what you problem is, lacking more information.



    Hey David, thanks for the info. Yea, we’re using group email subscriptions, so I’m assuming you’re correct. Thanks for that info – I’m a WP vet, but incredibly new to buddypress, so I’m entirely unaware of the common issues.

    Still open to any suggestions as a workaround for the issue, but this gives me a little direction to do more digging.

    Check the plugin’s GitHub page, where work is currently ongoing to solve the issue.
