Support » Plugin: Buddypress Profile Views » Problems with Session Files

  • I am very sorry to write a negative review of someone’s hard work, but this plugin is not something to install on your BuddyPress site.

    The plugin writes tons upon tons of session files – often in random folders and can throttle your site. This:

    [/home/sitename]# grep -in session_save ./public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-profile-views/bp_profile_views.php
    20: session_save_path(“../”) ;

    is likely the guilty piece of code.

    I wish the developer the best of luck if he/she decides to tackle this again. It would be a very handy thing to have. But, until and unless there is a new release of this plugin, I strongly advise against installing it.
