    Hi,

    I have created a custom notification for my site when a post is published, if i have buddypress activated alone i see the notification text but as soon as i activate bbpress i can no longer see the notification description. In order to work out this was happening when bbpress was activated i created a whole new blank install of wpress and only installed the two plugins and when i deactivated bbpress it showed the text.

    this is how the notification shows when bbpress is activated

    this is how the notification shows when bbpress is NOT activated
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/03wch6bc27nsked/Without%20BbPress%20showing%20text.PNG?dl=0

    I am using Twenty seventeen as the theme, bbpress version 2.5.14, buddypress version 4.1.0 and the latest version of wordpress

    The code i have used to generate the notification is below, and this is located in \wp-content\plugins\bp-custom.php

    <?php
    // this is to add a fake component to BuddyPress. A registered component is needed to add notifications
    function custom_filter_notifications_get_registered_components( $component_names = array() ) {
        // Force $component_names to be an array
        if ( ! is_array( $component_names ) ) {
            $component_names = array();
        }
        // Add 'custom' component to registered components array
        array_push( $component_names, 'publishpost' );
        // Return component's with 'custom' appended
        return $component_names;
    }
    add_filter( 'bp_notifications_get_registered_components', 'custom_filter_notifications_get_registered_components' );
    
    // this hooks to post creation and saves the post id
    function bp_custom_add_notification( $post_id, $post ) {
            $post = get_post( $post_id );
            $author_id = $post->post_author;
            bp_notifications_add_notification( array(
                'user_id'           => $author_id,
                'item_id'           => $post_id,
                'component_name'    => 'publishpost',
                'component_action'  => 'publishpost_action',
                'date_notified'     => bp_core_current_time(),
                'is_new'            => 1,
            ) );   
    }
    add_action( 'publish_post', 'bp_custom_add_notification', 99, 2 );
    
    function custom_format_buddypress_notifications( $action, $item_id, $secondary_item_id, $total_items, $format = 'string' ) 
    {
    // New custom notifications
        if ( 'publishpost_action' === $action ) {
    
            $post = get_post( $item_id );
    
            $custom_title = $post->post_author . ' published a new post ' . get_the_title( $item_id );
            $custom_link  = get_permalink( $post );
            $custom_text = $post->post_author . ' published a new post ' . get_the_title( $item_id );
            // WordPress Toolbar
            if ( 'string' === $format ) {
                $return = apply_filters( 'publishpost_filter', '<a href="' . esc_url( $custom_link ) . '" title="' . esc_attr( $custom_title ) . '">' . esc_html( $custom_text ) . '</a>', $custom_text, $custom_link );
            // Deprecated BuddyBar
            } else {
                $return = apply_filters( 'publishpost_filter', array(
                    'text' => $custom_text,
                    'link' => $custom_link
                ), $custom_link, (int) $total_items, $custom_text, $custom_title );
            }
    
            return $return;
    
        }
    }
    add_filter( 'bp_notifications_get_notifications_for_user', 'custom_format_buddypress_notifications', 10, 5 );

    I need to get it so that when bbpress is activated i can see the custom notification description as we use bbpress for our forums

    I suspect it is to do with a conflict in this file

    bbpress 2.5.14\includes\extend\buddypress\notifications.php

    which hooks to the same filter. Maybe up your priority from 10 to get yours to run later ?

    when you say higher than 10 do you mean towards 20 or towards 1

    thanks

    20 – just a stab at a solution

    actually try both, making it lower means it runs first which might also be the answer !!

    ok, not sure what to suggest next, as I’m not a buddypress expert.
