#6416 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Unable to add replys comments to activity stream with latest Buddy Press release

Reported by: wrowlands's profile wrowlands Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.2.3
Component: Core Keywords:


I just updated the BP plugin to version I can make a comment to a post to the initial post within the activity stream. If I attempt to reply to the comment, nothing happens except the page scrolls up. This same issue showed up in some past version of BP, and now the issue has come back.

I just noticed that we are able to reply to comments made 2 weeks ago. It is the comments made since the upgrade to BP version 2.2.2 and later we are having this problem. Here is our site:

  • Priority changed from high to normal
  • Severity changed from critical to normal

We ought to try to look at this before 2.3 ships, and investigate if it's a real issue.

I will say that this is a real issue. Everything has been working fine until the release of 2.2.2. Our site continues to have the problem since.

This ticket was mentioned in Slack in #buddypress by djpaul. View the logs.

I can confirm that the "reply" button in an Activity Update was present on subsequent comments in 2.2.3:
Disappeared in
But has re-appeared in 2.3:

Is this what others are seeing?

The reply button is present, although when you click on it, the page just scrolls up and there is no reply input box shown.

I'm not able to reproduce this. AFAIK nothing changed in 2.2.x that would cause this problem.

The reply button is present, although when you click on it, the page just scrolls up and there is no reply input box shown.

This suggests that the JS is broken somehow. What theme are you using? Does it have customized JavaScript? Does it change the selector of the Reply link?

I'm going to go back into my hidey-hole now. Ends up I had threaded comments turned off in the Discussion settings.

We've not been able to recreate this issue, unfortunately, so we're going to have to close this ticket for now until/if we get more evidence that lets us explore the problem. Thank you for the original report.
