buddypress not counting my posts in my profile

Reported by: anointed's profile anointed Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Core Keywords: reporter-feedback


For some reason buddypress is taking over the user profile link from bbpress which is fine, EXCEPT it says that I have no topics/replies which is not correct.

This makes it IMPOSSIBLE for me to find my old posts via any means on my website.


Buddypress says no topics:

My username vs. user-id in database:

Database says otherwise:

What I don't understand is my bbPress install is on a sub-domain website #3 and my buddypress install is on website #1 my primary domain.

I don't understand why buddypress is 'hijacking' my user profile link on another website where buddypress is not even installed.

I need some way to be able to find my old topics.

Is there any way I can do this in the current state of buddypress?

*Optimally, buddypress should show me all my topics/replies/posts from throughout my network. Othewise what good is the user profile page anyway, if the information is totally incorrect?

Are you using a network install? If BuddyPress is network-activated, try network-deactivating and then activate BP only from the primary site's plugin dashboard.

It's hard to be 100% sure what's going on from what you've posted, but it looks to me like you are looking at the tabs related to the bbPress 1.x Discussion Forums component, but the forum posts you're talking about are from bbPress 2.x.

If I'm wrong about this, and your Topics Started page is actually associated with bbPress 2.x, then it's probably a function of the fact that your bbPress forums are on a separate site in the network. There's no way for BuddyPress to be able to determine automatically that this is the case. In addition to r-a-y's suggestion, you might try un-network-activating *bbPress*, which will at least remove the 'Topics Started' and 'Topics Replied' tabs. Alternatively, if you would like the topics to show up, you'll have to write some custom code that uses switch_to_blog( 3 ) before the forum content is fetched, and then restore_current_blog() afterward.

I'm closing this ticket as invalid because it looks like a config issue (albeit a complex one). if it turns out that there's actually a BP bug here, please reopen and we can discuss.
