Unusual Problem with Favorites

  • I’m having an unusual problem with favorites. Nothing displays at /username/activity/favorites/, despite a user having made several favorites. I get the message: “Sorry, there was no activity found. Please try a different filter.”

    I don’t have any JS issues, users can click favorite and unfavorite without a problem. The favorite count updates. All other menu items work, except the one where it should list a user’s favorites. I tried enabling the default BP theme and still have the issue, so I suspected it may be a plugin. I deactivated all plugins except BuddyPress itself. The problem persists.

    There’s nothing in my error log. I checked my tables, none needed to be repaired. Anyone have any ideas what this could be?

    Is it a default install or have you changed something. I’ve done this before and not remembered I edited something in core. Can you delete bp plugin and reinstall?

    I haven’t changed anything in the BP core. I just deleted those files and uploaded a fresh copy of BP 1.5.1. again – still no change. Maybe something in the database? What might I look for in the activity or activity meta tables that would clue me in? Would having a custom table prefix affect it at all?




    Did you add these:
    Set a custom user database table for BuddyPress (and WordPress to use):
    define ( ‘CUSTOM_USER_TABLE’, $tablename );

    Set a custom usermeta database table for BuddyPress (and WordPress to use):
    define ( ‘CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE’, $tablename );

    Yes, I just tested with this but it doesn’t make a difference for showing a users’ list of favorites. I’ve never encountered this before.

    Just an update to this issue: Through working with @karmatosed we found that it was a problem, partially related to this ticket here: and were able to correct it.
