member profile latest update inconsistency between page refresh/ajax load

Milestone: 1.5 Priority: normal
Severity: Version:
Component: Activity Keywords:


The latest update as displayed on members' profiles is of inconsistent length, when you post a long string which gets truncated, between a page refresh and the initial content returned by the AJAX call.

The JS that updates the header takes the update content directly from the AJAX response (which truncates to 358 characters), while on refresh it comes from bp_activity_latest_update() (which truncates to 180). Ideally, I'd be able to modify the JS to obey the 180 number. But because our AJAX handler bp_dtheme_post_update() returns HTML rather than structured data, this is nigh impossible. I either write a JS-equivalent of bp_create_excerpt(), or I rewrite the activity posting to return JSON data and then build the HTML in JS, or I make another AJAX call to get the shorter excerpt. All three of these options seem lousy, so I'm just going to change the default in bp_activity_latest_update().
