#1107 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Activity cache clearing button needed

Reported by: slaffik's profile slaFFik Owned by: slaffik's profile slaFFik
Milestone: 1.2 Priority: minor
Severity: Version:
Component: Keywords: cache, activity
Cc: slaFFik, jobjorn


There is a problem with showing in activity stream some data which shouldn't be there.
I had bp-album plugin by Manoj and events plugin by Edwin activated on my 1.0.3 install. Today decided to upgrade to r1964. Before upgrading I deactivated ALL plugins (BuddyPress itself was the last one). Then did things to have 1.1 but after activating only BuddyPress and moving themes to proper place and adjusting widgets I found out Events and Albums activity in the stream. They were not activated! And I even deleted those files - nothing changed.
I think the reason is a built-in cache system. So I guess for such situations some "Clear Activity Cache" button is needed. It's not a good idea manually delete elements from database.

To my knowledge, activity posts are logged in a database table, never to be tampered with again. De-activating a plugin does not, and should not, revert everything that ever happened that that plugin was involved in. You may delete the events plugin, but Mr Jones still attended that party.

So I think this should be marked as "wontfix". If not, the best solution is probably to filter out activity posts not belonging to activated plugins somehow.

Agreed. In my opinion this is a matter of plugins not cleaning up after themselves. Maybe a more detailed administration is in order to purge activities of specific types?
