#866 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

bp_has_activities() & "Friends" type pagination bug

Reported by: r-a-y's profile r-a-y Owned by:
Milestone: 1.1 Priority: minor
Severity: Version:
Component: Keywords:


If you use a bp_has_activites() loop with custom parameters of


Pagination count and links show up correctly, but the bp_activites() loop shows all 15 entries on one page at once, and not 5 as noted in the "per_page" parameter.


Removing the parameter "type" and "user_id" parameter from the above example shows pagination correctly, but for sitewide activity only.

Tested on BP 1.0.2, not on BP 1.0.3.

I've just tested this in trunk and it is working correctly. Instead of using $current_user->ID and having to global $current_user, you can use:

bp_displayed_user_id() or bp_loggedin_user_id()

Hey Andy,

The reason why I'm using the global variable is because BP doesn't seem to have a "username" function to return.

BP seems to have everything but that! (ID, display name)

So since I needed the global $current_user for the username on a particular page, I decided to use it for the ID as well.

I guess I could use:

$user_info = get_userdata(1);

$theUsername = $user_info->user_login;
$theUserID = $user_info->ID;

Would using get_userdata() be more beneficial than using global $current_user?

Unless I'm overlooking a very, simple function to return the username (I probably am!) ;)

Just jotting down my thoughts!

I could also use this:

global $user_ID, $user_login;

I think this is the best method... but I'm not entirely sure.

Actually get_currentuserinfo() also calls on the global $current_user... it might be best to have it the way I have it now.

Unless there's a better way!
