Are you using the bp-default theme?

Are you able to debug the javascript when it's firing? If you're using Firefox, try this tutorial with Firebug:

Other browsers like Chrome and Safari have their own developer console; if you're familiar with them and are able to debug, please post your console log.

Keep in mind that, by default, you need to be friends with other users for autocomplete to work.

I was using the Custom Community theme. Tested with firebug and no javascript fires at all.

Tested again in the bp-default theme and it is working. Is there a specific bit of code that I would need to add (or update) in the Custom Community theme to make it work?

Can confirm that this is happening with me too. WP 3.5.1 / BP 1.6.4 all other plugins deactivated and the default theme activated too.

@NickMackz - The Custom Community devs will probably need to update a portion of their javascript.

They might want to look at this JS change in bp-default:

If they are using a copy of global.js, then that's probably the change that will help them.

@petervandoom - We need more details. Do you have any friends on your site? You need to have friends by default to use the autocomplete feature. Are you using the Events Manager plugin? (See #4824)

Does the same thing happen when BP_MESSAGES_AUTOCOMPLETE_ALL is disabled?

#8 @mort3n

Friends component is not enabled, so the test would be void.

Update :

On my install, this was caused by plugin It works with version 3.3.0 but not with 3.3.5.

I apologise sincerely for not testing this properly before adding to this ticket!

Am looking forward to BP 1.7 :-)

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

Thanks for the update, mort3n. Just a few days ago, a fix was committed to trunk that smooths the way that https is handled for AJAX. See #4761. So I'm guessing that your issue will be resolved with 1.7.

I'm closing this ticket, under the assumption that the other reporters were having similar issues. Please reopen if you have details to the contrary.
