Error Posting comments

I have been having this error for couple of months or more, have narrowed it down to being a buddypress error.

Error is
Whenever somebody posts comments, the comments go through (i.e it does get posted)
But as soon as user hits post button, it thinks for a min and gets forwarded to an error page(sometimes show duplicate comment).

Any idea to solve, This is becoming a very serious issue, have been talking with Automattic as well. Can somebody help me resolve this.

@mjc82in The correct place to look into this initially is the community help forum where you'll get the widest exposure for the problem, I see you've opened a thread there:

If you could elaborate on the steps to re-produce so it's absolutely clear what the issue is and how to re-create it would help others look into this.

In a very brief test, I can add a comment to a post via the activity stream, this posts without issue in both act stream and the original post, I can add a comment to the post and likewise this is submitted correctly and synced to activity stream.

So I'm not sure if there is an issue without verifying exact steps to reproduce, also naturally ensure no plugins running and a default WP theme in use, if you could detail those steps and acknowledge re-testing with plain WP theme on the forum thread it will help.

If we do find an issue we will create a trac ticket to cover it.

Going to close this ticket in favour of the forum thread for the moment.

mjc82in added a new comment on #6832:

The problem has not been resolved and its becoming more and more critical now.
I narrowed down the issue to site tracking. Whenever I have site tracking on buddypress turned on. the error happens if not it works.

@mjc82in - To follow-up with what hnla mentioned above, you need to write a clear list of steps to reproduce the problem, what the expected behavior is and what is actually occurring.

I would also guess from what you mentioned here:

But as soon as user hits post button, it thinks for a min and gets forwarded to an error page(sometimes show duplicate comment).

That your problem is due to your theme or a plugin conflict. I would recommend switching your theme to a WordPress default theme like Twenty Fourteen and see if you are able to duplicate your problem.
