    Your Blog Categories For Groups plugin is great! I really love it, but there it has a serious bug.

    Bug description:

    If someone creates a group post, writes a comment on that post and then immediately decides to reply to their own comment, the entire website will hang and crash.

    I have been trying to isolate this bug all morning and I’m now sure it’s caused by your plugin.

    Steps to recreate the bug:

    1) Install and activate the Blog Categories For Groups plugin
    2) Install and activate the BP Simple Front End Post plugin
    3) Create a group
    4) Make a post in the group by clicking the “Blog” tab and then “Create a New Post” link
    5) Once post is published, make a comment.
    6) Without refreshing the page, make a reply to your original comment
    7) Now the website hangs.
    8) If you refresh the post, and try to make another top level comment and immediate reply to that comment, it can crash the entire website.

    This is really bad for me because the functionality from Blog Categories For Groups is core to my site, but this bug can also take down the entire site. Only restarting the server fixes it.

    Hoping you can find a solution for this. I’ve been trying to solve it but my coding skills are not as good as yours, so I was hoping you would be able to please help me.

    In case you need it, this is a screenshot of my Blog Categories For Groups plugin settings: https://imgur.com/a/5JCI2nN

    If you need any more info please let me know.

    Great to hear!

    Thanks so much for your help 🙂

    How do I go about downloading the updated version?

    The download page (https://buddydev.com/plugins/blog-categories-for-groups/) says the last update was Thursday, 25 April, 2019. So I think that is the old version with the bug.

    Hi,
    I am sorry for not replying earlier.

    @ravisharma confirmed me the bug and I confirmed that to you in my previous reply.

    When I tried to recreate later for fixing, It did not happen for me. I was not able to recreate it for any group. I asked @ravisharma for the steps to recreate and even he was unable to recreate again.

    Are you able to predictably create it? I followed your above steps and no such thing happened(@ravisharma was able to produce the error once).

    is there any way for me to check it on your site or some way to predictable create it more than once. I believe some recursion is happening(from the message Ravi shared with me).

    Thank you
    Brajesh
