bp conflict with donncha's site wide tag plugin

Reported by: burtadsit's profile burtadsit Owned by: burtadsit's profile burtadsit
Milestone: Priority: major
Severity: Version:
Component: Keywords: site wide tags, donncha, blogs


I realize that there was a prev problem with the interaction of bp and donncha's site wide tag plugin. It still exists. It's not an infinite loop though.

When bp is installed it doesn't work at all. I get one post from subdomain blog into the tags blog and the rest either don't post to the tags blog or they are incomplete. Categories and tags from the originating post don't get created and the permalink is recorded to the tags blog, not the originating blog.

If I disable bp the site wide tagging works as advertised.

Well, never mind. I had problems on my dev machine with bp and donncha's plugin. Disabled the bp-blogs.php file and things worked fine with the plugin. Upload to the net and a diff server and did the same. Still had a problem. Disabled all of bp by deleting it completely and I still have a prob with the tags plugin. Won't create posts on the tags blog for subdomains. So, bp has nothing to do with it.

Weird. Never mind.

Here we go again. I disabled the site wide tagging plugin, killed the tags blog and reinstalled it. Recreated the tags blog and began testing without bp. Things work as they should with the tags blog. Reinstalled bp with the blogs component disabled. Everything works fine. Turned on the blogs component and ran into the infinite loop problem. I look in bp-blogs.php and see the comment and fix for donncha's plugin. I guess I'll be running without the blogs component for awhile. I have to build a site with that feature.

I reopened this ticket because there is still some problem there. Are we having fun yet?

Type set the get_site_option('tags_blog_id') as integer which should stop the infinite looping. On my test installation the tags blog seems to be working as expected.

I type set the get_site_option result as indicated (I did it to all 4/5 that I found). While the plugin works better I've noticed that it's not quite working properly.

It seems like it's creating other "phantom" posts that get thrown out when you go through the loop. I did a var_dump of one and here are the contents.

object(stdClass)#194 (1) { blog_id?=> string(2) "13" }

Is there any way that someone can have a look at the functionality of this plugin again? I'm running the latest trunk versions of BP & WPMU 2.7

fix for sitewide recent blog posts when donncha's plugin is active

#9 @burtadsit

Ok. I've attached a patch for bp-blogs.php which fixes the recent blog post activity with donncha's sitewide tags plugin problem. That plugin is saving the initial autosave draft of a post to the tags blog as well as the post. The 'vapor' posts are actually the posts from the tag blog that are inserted before the actual post is inserted. Those were making it into the bp_user_blogs_posts table. If you check the post id's there are two. One from the original blog and one from the tags blog. Different id sequences.

The problem comes in when bp's bp_blogs_record_post() function relies on the state of the $current_blog var. Donncha does switch_to_blog() which doesn't affect the $current_blog obj. It only affects the $wpdb->blogid. BP records the autosave draft thinking it's from the original blog. However since we aren't in Kansas anymore BP is confused and thinks this is a valid post being saved. After all we are still not recording things from the tags blog are we? Yes we are.

Changing $current_blog->blog_id to $wpdb->blogid, which is valid even when switch_to_blog() takes us to never never land and back, fixes this.
