Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Group Email Subscription » [Plugin: BuddyPress Group Email Subscription] Nothing saves

  • slips111


    Whether I try to save e-mail options through the /groups page or by clicking ‘E-mail Options’ in individual groups, preferences are immediately lost.

    The other issues I’ve got are mostly cosmetic, but this renders the plug-in worthless for me. It’s gone awfully quiet in here, but I’d happily buy a coffee for anyone who could help me work through this. Or if this plug-in is flagging, does anyone know of another one? My users are missing out on too much content by having to actively click the ‘Groups’ tab to keep up.

  • I have the same experience, or close. But at the root of all the groups I can change the setting easily, and when above the forum, but if they go into email settings it doesn’t work. I am on wordpress 3.2.1 and buddypress 1.5.1. I am still finding this plugin invaluable, but would love to get this issue fixed. I believe I have my users trained to update at the all groups they are a member of view thankfully though.

    I can’t reproduce either of these problems. Are you using custom themes? Do you get any error messages? Do you have access to your PHP error log, where I might get more detailed information about the problems?

    I am using the Social theme from WPMU. Looks like I don’t have error logging for PHP turned on, so I will get that going.

    I’m using Suffusion theme, and unfortunately I can’t (figure out how to) get an error log, though there are no relevant plugin errors at, for whatever that’s worth. As with my other forum post, 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….


    Same problem here.
    Email options not saaving
    From the error log:
    26-Nov-2011 06:46:02] PHP Warning: Division by zero in /home/catalent/public_html/members/wp-content/plugins/bp-album/includes/bpa.template.tags.php on line 72

    For the record, and for whatever it’s worth, the 2.9.6 update didn’t fix this for me.

    (@boonebgorges) errors will only say what happens on the front end of your site; this problem is on the back end.

    rraymer – That problem doesn’t seem like it should be related – it’s a BP Album issue.

    Not sure how to troubleshoot this issue. It’s nearly impossible without having access to some real debugging, which is hard when I can’t reproduce the issue on any of my own installations. If one of you is familiar enough with PHP to do some strategic var_dump() or print_r() statements, it would be quite helpful.

    My hack :

    1. Edit “bp-activity-subscription-functions.php” file
    2. Change if ( $bp->current_component == 'groups' && $bp->current_action == 'notifications' ) { by if ( $bp->current_component == BP_GROUPS_SLUG && $bp->current_action == 'notifications' ) {
    3. Comments this line bp_core_redirect( wp_get_referer() );

    Can you testing ?

    king76 – Thanks very much for posting this. That gives me a very clear sense where to look. Working on a fix.

    Plugin Author Boone Gorges


    king76’s message made me realize that the problem is probably that you’re all using a groups slug other than ‘groups’, and the plugin wasn’t being generous enough in this spot to account for it.

    I’ve just tagged version 2.9.7 of the plugin, with a fix for this problem. Let me know if it helps.

    You guys rock! I love well supported plugins. I don’t see it on the plugin site yet, but once I do I will test and get back to you. I assume I am looking in the right place –

    Yes I use Buddypress in french and I have changed SLUG by “groupes”.

    And for the other line ? “bp_core_redirect( wp_get_referer() );”, I have a blank page if I don’t comment this line.

    Thank You

    Thanks, changed worked perfectly!

    The new update works here too (though ‘groups’ was my slug). Thanks! Still having problems with a hidden ‘Get E-mail Updates’ box, but I’ll keep that in its own topic. Is there a link where I can contribute? Thanks again.
