New BuddyPress Blogs not generating slugs

    Hi there,

    I’ve got BuddyBlog installed on top of BuddyPress, and have ‘Show single posts on user profile?’ set to No.

    If a user posts and publishes a blog article, it doesn’t get a slug set for it – in the back end of WordPress, the slug value is empty.

    As a result, the post’s single page is inaccessible. On the blog archive page, the URL for the permalink is that of its date archive (i.e. https://[SITE-URL]/blogs/2019/03/01/ ) so there is no way to access the individual post itself.

    I presume the post is meant to have a slug generated when the user submits it, and that this isn’t intended behaviour?

    The website is currently still in development, so I don’t want to publish the URL here as it looks like it goes into a publicly accessible forum. Is there a way to send the website URL and some BuddyPress login details to your support team in private?

    Hi Chris,
    Welcome to BuddyDev.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience. The slug should be generated automatically.

    There was a change related to slug generation in WordPress 5.1, It might be the reason.

    Please allow me to check it and get back to you in 30 minutes.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Chris,
    I just tested it. It is working for me on WordPress 5.1/BuddyPress 4.2/BuddyBlog 1.3.4 and BP Simple Front end post 1.3.6

    Are you allowing users to publish post(posts status set to publish or is it set to draft?). Also, can you please visit settings->permalink and make sure it is setup(I am assuming it is).

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thanks for getting back to me. We’ve got ‘Default post status’ set to Draft.

    I’ve just checked and it works fine if I set this to ‘Published’. However, if ‘Default post status’ is set to ‘Draft’, no permalink gets set.

    If the user then goes on to publish their post via the ‘Post Actions’ toolbar, the permalink remains empty. Presumably it should be getting set when they click the Publish button, but this isn’t happening.

    I’ve just tried this on a completely clean setup, with BuddyPress 4.2.0, BuddyBlog 1.3.4 and BP Simple Front end post 1.3.6 being the only plugins installed, and the same thing happens.

    Many thanks,

    Chris
