@robin-w Thank you and yes… I was already considering something similar as a temporary fix, although hopefully it’s something bbPress will address at some stage soon as it’s clearly an issue that will be causing problems for a lot of users…
All I can say for now is that version 2.5.14 definitely does work, and the (latest) version 2.6.4 definitely does not. I haven’t yet had a chance to test the versions in between to be able to say for sure in which version this issue originally occurred.
Yes I’ve seen there are several people reporting the same issue there but no useful responses as yet. Tbh the problem is obviously originating from bbPress (ie. it’s not formatting the links in the same way as it used to) but if/until a fix is forthcoming, I’m planning on seeing if I can find a work around myself.
Will post back here if anyone is interested…
@robin-w OK well… I’m pretty sure it’s arising from the file located in bbpress/includes/extend/buddypress/notifications.php where there is a function called function bbp_format_buddypress_notifications() which creates a link (which when clicked, automatically marks that particular notification as “read”).
From the quick test I’ve just run, it would appear that the link/string created in more recent versions of bbPress may not be correct but I’ll need to do some more investigation to work out how/why.
As far as I can tell, this is likely to be an issue for all Buddypress/bbPress users so I’m quite surprised it hasn’t been highlighted sooner.
If I can jump in here, I’m fairly sure I’m experiencing the same problem with Buddypress notifications eg. “You have one new reply to topic X”. Clicking on the link used to mark the notification as “Read” but this is no longer happening.
Currently using bbPress 2.6.4 and BuddyPress 5.1.2.
Downgrading to bbPress 2.5.14 (an old version that I happened to have installed elsewhere) certainly fixes the problem but will have to do further investigation to work out exactly which version this issue originally started occurring.
Either way, notifications are certainly not getting marked as read in version 2.6.4 when the link is clicked, although clicking on the “Mark Read” button still does.
