  • Yep, same problem for me. WP 3.2.1 and BP 1.5.1. Cosmetic, but getting this and the save setting in the email options would kick butt, as this plugin addresses a HUGE gap for what I needed.

    It’s hard to tell what’s going on without seeing a link to your sites, but it’s probably one of two things:
    – the JavaScript isn’t getting loaded. View the source of the page to see if anything called bp-activity-subscription-js.js is getting loaded, and that jQuery is getting loaded before it
    – your theme changes some of the selectors so that the js doesn’t work anymore. Make sure that you haven’t changed the “group-subscription-options” class on the main div.

    Thanks for the response on my issue! My site is but you can’t see it without logging on. If you have a place I can PM you I will give you that. By the way, KILLER implementation on CUNY, wow, now that just looks awesome. Thanks again! David

    Also just did a donated – such a must have plugin.

    Thanks for the response. I’m using Suffusion theme, everything fully updated. The site is here: ‘test’ and ‘test’ will log you in, though the plugin isn’t enabled at the moment because it’s just confusing people. I’ll put it up for a day if you give me a signal here. Also, the site is slightly, gently NSFW….

    Thank you, thank you.

    Updates haven’t fixed this (not that they were aimed at fixing it). This is my last little kink to iron out. As another option, can someone tell me how to simply hide this option and the box. The ‘Email Options’ button and /groups options could be sufficient for me. Thanks.

    slips111 – Did you check the suggestions I gave here?

    Without the plugin activated on your site, there’s no way I could get a sense of what’s going on. It’s very likely that your theme is introducing a JS conflict, or that it’s preventing the JS from loading.

    You should be able to remove the AJAX boxes by putting the following in your theme’s functions.php:

    add_action ( 'bp_group_header_meta', 'ass_group_subscribe_button' );
    add_action ( 'bp_directory_groups_actions', 'ass_group_subscribe_button' );

    Oops, make that

    remove_action ( 'bp_group_header_meta', 'ass_group_subscribe_button' );
    remove_action ( 'bp_directory_groups_actions', 'ass_group_subscribe_button' );

    Great, that takes it away. Thanks. The only problem is that is also removes the boxes from the /groups page, but I can live with that.

    I thought that’s what you wanted?

    The first remove_action() removes the options on single group pages. The second one removes it on the groups directory.

    Fantastic! Thanks. For some reason the boxes appear without problem in the groups directory.

    Also Testing this plugin with Suffusion theme

    1) In a particular group home page

    Clicking on (Get Email Updates) activates the (FFFFCC colored) box with the group-subscription-options.


    it comes down behind the <div id =”item-nav”> that contains Home Admin Forums Docs Members Member Groups Send Invites Email Options

    the functionality can be obtained by clicking Email Options (so removal -as outlined above- is an option) but it would be great if the intended behavior worked !

    2) In Group Directory Page

    Clicking on (Get Email Updates) works perfectly for all groups EXCEPT for the last group where the yellow box comes down but the last 2 lines are hidden behind the page borders.

    3) Works perfectly in bp default and with another third party theme —- so appears to be suffusion theme related.

    Would love a fix but its not urgent.


    viewed source and it appears jquery loaded before bp-activity-subscription-js.

    <script type=’text/javascript’ src=’′></script>

    Many lines later

    <script type=’text/javascript’ src=’′></script>

    Afraid I’m at a loss as to how to remedy this

    A minor problem with using Boone’s solution to remove the email options from the Group Directory is that there is a message which the plugin adds to the bottom of the Settings > Notifications screen (../members/member/settings/notifications/) saying “To change the email notification settings for your groups, go to [My Groups] and click “Change” for each group.” But the “Change” link has been removed.

    I have replaced that function (ass_add_notice_to_notifications_page() in bp-activity-subscription-functions.php) with my own one in my theme with slightly different wording.

    Picky? I know! But perhaps worth noting…
