Description (last modified by DJPaul)

When I try to use the “Compose Message” page, I get an error in the drop-down box of the “Send To” field.

The drop down box displays things like
el=”alternate” type=”application/rss+xml” title=”Fan Club

Does this still occur in BP 1.2.6?
Have you tried this in other browsers?

I'm not sure this patch will work when WordPress is installed in a subdirectory; I think it will construct the wrong URL. I assume this is why SCRIPT_NAME is used here. We need to identify what the actual cause of this problem is. Does $_SERVERSCRIPT_NAME? not always contain "index.php"?

1.2 branch is awaiting release, we're not adding anything more to it.

Just checked against a root and a subdomain install (WP 3.0.3):

Actually this patch is _necessary_ to make it work in a subdirectory. In a subdirectory install the current code constructs the URL like:


$bp->root_domain part:


str_replace( 'index.php', 'wp-load.php', $_SERVERSCRIPT_NAME? ) part:


The proposed patch constructs the right path for root and subdirectory installs, so +1 for patching...

Paul is right.

Just tested this with Wordpress installed in a subdirectory:

And patch-001 doesn't address this.

Patch-002 should address this.

Tested where WP is installed in a subdirectory and on a network subdirectory install where BP_ROOT_BLOG = 2.

I really hate the way we inject javascript inline with messages_autocomplete_init_jsblock(); I think Boone said he was going to re-work the autocomplete javascript at some point, so I'll leave it to him to improve that.
