#1656 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Probably not a "bug", but there's a link issue when changing the blog url, or at least it's not consistent.

I was messing around yesterday with my blog url and noticed that the URL used in the activity links is different from the menu links at the top when I changed it.

I changed the path on a blog from /wordpress-mu to /main, and the links were pointing to the "/main" on the menu but not on the user accounts in the latest activity which were still at "/wordpress-mu". I had not changed the .htaccess at the time, which fixed everything, but just noticed a difference on how the links were being created.

  • Type changed from enhancement to defect

Bumping this to defect, so it's seen by the BP devs.

I haven't tried to reproduce it, but it sounds like a bug to me.

  • Milestone changed from 1.2 to 1.3

There is no support in the activity stream for updating links since the activity at the moment is recorded at the time it was done. There may be a refresh option in a future version, but right now you are going to run into problems if you change your site domain with existing activity stream data. It is possible to use find and replace via an sql query though.

I'd like to see the refresh option that apeating suggests but we won't have time for it for 1.3

Activity action strings, including links, are now dynamically generated. See #3856.
