#5721 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Members directory displaying on more than one page.

Reported by: xhan's profile xhan Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 2.2 Priority: high
Severity: normal Version: 1.2.8
Component: Core Keywords:


Steps to reproduce:
Create page template, name the file page-membership-application.php

Any page using this template will load the membership directory.

bp-core-template.php is searching for the word 'members' assumes users wont have other page templates with the word members in it.

line 1114

if ( !empty( $page_template ) && strstr( strtolower( $page_template ), strtolower( $component ) ) ) {

I've not tested this too thoroughly as I haven't had time so for now I've just renamed my template page-mem-application.php

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 2.1

Moving to 2.1 for a further look. Using strstr() in this way seems really odd to me, so someone should have a look to see why this check was introduced in the first place. (It could be a legacy concern that's no longer relevant.)

Dates way back to r3884: "to look for page templates as root_slug's too".

@JJJ: can you take a look at this please?

#4 @DJPaul

  • Milestone changed from 2.1 to 2.2
  • Version changed from 2.0 to 1.2.8

Let's pull out strstr early in 2.2 to give us time to see if we can re-discover the edge case, or if JJJ can remember any more details why this change was made.

#5 @pro120

Looks like this was most likely a legacy concern that is improperly matching standard page templates.

#6 @johnjamesjacoby

Patch looks good. It fixes both the original bug, and another redirect issue related to more recent changes to theme compatibility template handling.

I'll add that after looking at the original changeset, I agree it doesn't really make much sense, and am unclear exactly what problem it was trying to solve, so I'm comfortable basically reverting that part of r3884 and circling back with more details later.

In 9091:

Remove page template name check in bp_is_current_component() introduced in r3884, fixing potential collisions causing unexpected template output or redirections.

Props pro120. Fixes #5721.
