#3707 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT breaks other users' profile account URLs

Reported by: djpaul's profile DJPaul Owned by:
Milestone: 1.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


If you set define('BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT', 'messages'); in your wp-config.php, then try to visit another member's profile page when you are logged in (*not* your own), the page doesn't load; looks like a redirect loop.

Confirmed on 1.5.1 + trunk.

I'm guessing this is an issue with the messages component in particular (since one can't access others' message screens) rather than with BP_DEFAULT_COMPONENT in general. Probably we shouldn't allow a private component like messages to be the default, or at least we should provide a fallback.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [5385]) Provides a valid fallback redirect for situations where the default component is set to something that is unavailable for the logged-in user (such as messages, when viewing someone else's profile). Fixes #3707
