Buddypress breaks plugins on multisite

Reported by: jstallard's profile jstallard Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: lowest
Severity: trivial Version: 2.2.3
Component: (not sure) Keywords:



Since the recent Wordpress 4.2 updates I've noticed strange behaviour that goes away when I deactivate Buddypress on my multisite:

1) The Events Manager Events widget replaces a blog's widgets with random widgets from the main blog, including inactive ones, when a category id is specified in the Events widget.
2) Jetpack Publicize publishes the main blog's logo (which is in a widget) as the image for another blog's post when autopublishing to Facebook.
3) Contact Form 7 sends emails where the From field contains the main blog's name instead of the sender's name as specified by the [your-name] shortcode.

Don't know how, but it looks like Buddypress is responsible.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Under Consideration

To our own discredit, we never looked into this. Sorry, @jstallard.

While incompatibilities with other plugins are quite possible, we'd still need to investigate each one you mentioned. Probably they need separate issues so we can look into each separately (having to look into 3 is probably why this went nowhere), but we can take care of that.

I don't know when we might get chance to triage this.

Hi Paul

Not to worry, I no longer use Buddypress. I was using it to create a free community network but I had too many problems with spam registrations and too many complaints so I ditched it!

  • Milestone Under Consideration deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed


In that case, I'm going to close this for now as we have many other tickets awaiting investigation. If there were conflicts with these plugins and BuddyPress, no doubt we'll find them reported again in the future; we'll fix them then.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
