    Hello,
    I am using the Buddypress Activity Comment Notifier plugin and noticed that the Blog Author was receiving double notifications when there is a new comment. So after searching this forum I found this function
    that removes the double notification for the blog author.

    
    add_filter( 'ac_notifier_skip_notification', 'bp_ac_custom_exclude_comment_activity', 10, 2 );
    
    function bp_ac_custom_exclude_comment_activity( $exclude, $activity ) {
        if ( ! empty( $activity ) && $activity->type =='new_blog_post' && (get_current_user_id() != $activity->user_id))
        {   
            return true;
        }
        return $exclude;
    }
    

    However I am still receiving double notification on replies to user comments.

    Example: User John Posted a comment on a Blog Post and receives a reply on his comment.
    John receives 2 notifications.

    I am trying to remove these double notifications on replies to comments.
    [Additional Information: I am using 2 level of nesting for comments]

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Fariz

    Hi Fariz,
    You most probably don’t need the plugin.

    BuddyPress already implements comment notification now(Not as detailed as the plugin though)

    In the double notification one is coming from BuddyPress and one is from the plugin. That’s why you are seeing it twice.

    Please disable the plugin and see if you really need this plugin.

    If you still do, please let me know and I will assist.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh,
    Thank you very much for your help. I disabled the plugin and tried it.
    When a new comment is posted all the users in the comment thread should receive a notification(like facebook),
    but in default buddypress only the blog author receives the comment notification. That is why I am using the Buddypress Activity Comment Notifier to send comment notification to all users in the comment thread.
    The problem arises when the Blog Author replies to my comment, I already receive a notification from Buddypress, but Buddypress Activity Comment Notifier also sends a notification. So I was trying to exclude notification for replies to comment in Buddypress Activity Comment Notifier.

    Thanks,
    Fariz

    Hi Fariz,
    Thank you for the details.

    Please allow us a week to revive this plugin. We had abandoned it when BuddyPress included support for the comment notification.

    We will update it within a week and let you know.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh,
    I just wanted to follow up to see if there is any updates for this plugin?
    If not, could you tell how I can fix the above mentioned function to filter out notification for replies to comment, since buddypress by default sends a notification for that. I appreciate your help.

    Thanks,
    Fariz
