#5370 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

bp_legacy_theme_ajax_querystring per_page stopped working

Reported by: modemlooper's profile modemlooper Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.9.1
Component: Core Keywords:


Using the code below no longer works right. It only shows two items but when clicking pagination on activity it returns page 1 results and loads them below. On members loops It fades and then replaces itself with page 1 results.

Using per_page in a template file has same results. Changing per_page in bp-members-template.php > bp_has_members() works like it should.

function my_bp_loop_querystring( $query_string, $object ) {

    $query_string = 'per_page=2';

    return $query_string;
add_filter( 'bp_legacy_theme_ajax_querystring', 'my_bp_loop_querystring', 20, 2 );

modemlooper - Can you give details about when this actually did work? I just tested on 1.7 and 1.8 and it doesn't seem to work there either.

I'll keep digging for root causes.

OK, looks like your filter is not correctly written. You're wiping out the entire $query_string, which means that the pagination arguments on subsequent pages are getting wiped out too. You have to add your param, not overwrite the whole thing:

function my_bp_loop_querystring( $query_string, $object ) {
    if ( ! empty( $query_string ) ) {
        $query_string .= '&';

    $query_string .= 'per_page=2';

    return $query_string; 
add_action( 'bp_legacy_theme_ajax_querystring', 'my_bp_loop_querystring', 20, 2 );

I know this isn't the most elegant thing in the world, but it's how the filter has always worked. (We should come up with something a little easier to deal with in the future.)

I had used the example I had written in codex, which oddly worked at one point. Will update codex.
