#5270 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Ugly URLs in activity stream 'new post' entries

Reported by: henrywright's profile henrywright Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Blogs Keywords:


An activity entry for a new post looks something like:

Member X wrote a new post, Post Title 2 minutes ago

The phrase 'Post Title' is hyperlinked and takes the user to the single post page. If you inspect the 'Post Title' URL, you will see it is ugly and doesn't honour the WP admin permalink settings.

Notes on the environment this was tested on:

  1. Site Tracking enabled
  2. Permalink settings set to /%post_id%/
  3. BP 1.9 beta 1
  4. WP 3.7.1
  5. Twenty Twelve

In bp-blogs-functions.php at line 323 i'm thinking replace

$post_permalink = add_query_arg(
    trailingslashit( get_home_url( $blog_id ) )


$post_permalink = get_permalink( $post_id );

This works for standard BP but I haven't been able to test on multisite.

  • Component changed from Core to Blogs
  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is by design.

See #4367 as to why.

You can override this with the 'bp_blogs_activity_new_post_primary_link' filter if you do not like the change.
