#5592 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Can not retrieve a specific activity comment.

Reported by: godavid33's profile godavid33 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Activity Keywords:


When using bp_activity_get_specific( array( 'activity_ids' => ACTIVITY_ID ) ) with the ID of an activity_comment, a blank array is returned as the results. When using with the ID of an activity_update (or essentially anything excluding activity_comment) the correct results are returned.

This gets in the way of trying to custom create notifications front-end displays particularly.

The following works as a temporary fix to get the parent thread ID of an activity comment

$act_item = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT * FROM wp_bp_activity WHERE id = ACTIVITY_COMMENT_ID")

By default, activity comments are not fetched. To fetch activity comments, use the 'display_comments' parameter set to true and then pass the activity comment ID.

$act_item = bp_activity_get_specific( array(
    'display_comments' => true,
    'activity_ids' => ACTIVITY_COMMENT_ID
) );

Dangit r-a-y, beat me to it for a second time today.

Just to add: Ideally, we would not require you to pass the 'display_comments=true' param, but it would require rewriting much of the activity query infrastructure to make it work. (More specifically, we'd have to do a pre-query to see if you are requesting activity_comments, and to flip display_comments to true in those cases.) But this is not in the works at the moment, so please go with r-a-y's suggestion. Thanks.

Aw okay, actually that makes perfect sense given users have the option to disable comments (and assuming they allowed them briefly and some were populated, wouldn't want those be pulled now ;] )!

Thanks y'all
