#4488 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Activity stream not stripping caption shortcodes again in 1.6.1

Hi guys,

This issue came up a few versions ago and I have once again noticed it back in 1.6.1 (not sure if it was in 1.6 too).

The original ticket and patch was here:

Same kind of issue with caption and shortcode being fed into the activity stream excerpt.

To replicate is simple:

-Open a new post
-Place a picture with a caption BUT NO LINK into the post
-You will see the caption and the closing caption shortcode in the stream item

Tested on 2 installs and a brand new install of 1.6.1 with no plugins at all running.

To update this ticket, i have just tried to replicate this issue in BP 1.5.7 and I can't.

BP 1.5.7 works perfectly, so the problem obviously is in the later versions.

The patch still exists intact in 1.6.1 but obviously isn't working any longer.

Not sure why, but for some reason it looks like reverting the change in r5351 fixes the issue. rossagrant, will you try that on your installation?

I'm wary of simply reverting without understanding why this is happening, though. Anyone have insight?

#3 @rossagrant

Hey Boone, yep reverting the patch in BP fixes my issue completely.

NO idea why though! Bit bizarre, but that does sort the issue!

Anyone any ideas why?

  • Version changed from 1.6 to 1.6.1

Hey Boone!

Noticed that this fix didn't get reverted in 1.6.2 and so the weird caption text is still showing in the stream.

I have just tried reverting the above patch in 1.6.2 and again it fixes the problem.

This needs to be committed to I think.

Works perfectly.

What do you think?

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 1.7

It'll need more testing.

#6 @rossagrant

Cool, let me know if I can help, but all has been good with this revert since 1.6.1 for me!

#7 @johnjamesjacoby

No need for a, and I'd like to avoid a 1.6.3. 1.7 is due for beta soon; maybe you can switch to trunk, and help us get it ready for release?

#8 @boonebgorges

  • Component changed from Core to Blogs
  • Keywords has-patch needs-testing added
  • Priority changed from normal to lowest
  • Severity changed from normal to minor

Looks like there are two problems with the existing regex:

  1. It wasn't accounting for the existence of any caption text (in addition to the <img> element)
  2. There was some incorrect syntax for detecting the [/coption] closing shortcode

Please test 4488.patch to see if it works for you (rossagrant, this means you!)

Fixes #4488

  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Hey Boone!

So sorry guys, I've not kept up with this.

I haven't got a 1.7 install running yet but I've tested this with 1.6.3 (not sure if that's totally the right thing to do?)

I think this new patch is fine for images WITH captions but now causes stream issues with posts that don't have a caption in the picture.

Steps to replicate:

  • Create a new post.
  • Insert a picture with NO CAPTION.
  • Write your post AFTER the image (so image is basically top left of post).
  • Publish.

For some reason, the stream creates the thumbnail image as normal, but it then places the FULL SIZE image into the activity item too.

This DOESN'T happen if the image HAS a caption - you get just the thumbnail.

Have tested on new install of BP 1.6.3/ WP 3.5 with new patch.

If this is a 1.7 patch ONLY, then let me know and I'll get a 1.7 install up somewhere.

Thanks again!

I had another look and you're right. I believe the latest commit should cover the various cases.
