Activity Post/Reply To Not Working

Reported by: d71's profile d71 Owned by:

Severity: normal Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


Hi, I've installed the latest version of WordPress and I'm using it with BuddyPress...most features are working great, except that in the Activity area if I try to post an update or reply to an activity item...nothing happens. :(

I tried to follow what was happening with FireDebug and in Chrome by watching the Network tab, and basically the Post button always calls wp-load.php with some POST variables. I guess this is supposed to somehow invoke remote Ajax functions in Event Manager PHP files, but it doesn't appear to be working.

The result coming back from the wp-load.php AJAX calls is always status 200 (OK) with an empty string, no error message, no content...just nothing :(

When I try the same thing on in my Activity area, the response back is a nice list of activity items (the udpated <li> items). So I think the AJAX url is correct, its just that BuddyPress isn't honoring the call.

Can you given me any ideas on how to debug this?

Can you tell me what the chain of function calls is suppsoed to be when wp-load.php runs? maybe I can put in some error_log() statement in key places and see if an error is aborting the script early?

If there is any configuration information I can provide please let me know.

What version of WordPress are you using?

When I activate the standard buddypress theme 1.2.7 the posting/reply features in the activity stream work ok.

The theme I was using was the BuddyBase? theme (from BuddyBoss?). We like that theme, and it seems to work there any way to debug the chain of function calls once wp-load.php is invoked?

Now that I have a working example I coudld debug by comparing what happens for each theme and maybe actually fix it.

I don't understand how the PHP code gets from wp-load.php down in to the target ajex handler functions though. Can you give me some guidance on that?

Hi, I'm using WP 3.1.3, but check my last comment...I think the theme we are using is the issue...I just need some guidance on how to start debugging it...
