Relative Links vs. Direct Links on all MediaPress Attachments

    I’m experiencing weird linking behavior on my current WordPress Instance that I’m not sure how to fix.

    When I’m logged in, every activity post that is a MediaPress Photo shows the ‘logged in users link’ instead of the author’s link.
    When I’m logged off, every activity post becomes a relative link and removes the author’s link
    The same happens when use the Default Twentyseventeen Theme, Deactivate every plugin except for BuddyPress & MediaPress (Latest Versions) and use the same Database on a Duplicated Website.

    For instance:
    ## On the Activity Post, the URL for a Photo by ‘abe’ is ##

    ## And for Activity Posts made by other members, (Not Abe), it shows up as ##

    ## Even though (abe) is not the author of the photo, it should be: ##

    And that goes for every users activity post, it still shows the ‘logged in’ users link instead of the authors

    ## When I’m Logged Off, the Same URLs from above turn into relative links, meaning that the author link is not there ##

    ## This is where it gets weird ##
    I’ve managed to duplicate my website, (Database, Files & Htaccess), and use the Default Twentyseventeen Theme, Deactivate every plugin except for BuddyPress & MediaPress (Latest Versions), I get the same behavior as above.

    ## But, when I chose to start a new WordPress Database Instance (With an Empty Database) ##
    All of the URLS are correct and stay put even when you Log In/Off, and they don’t show up as relative links, but direct links with the proper author link in the beginning.

    So I thought [https://codex.wordpress.org/Rewrite_API/flush_rules] in the footer of the page would do the trick but that didn’t change anything.

    ## Is there a rule that is saved to the database that manages URLs for Mediapress? I only get this behavior on existing databse, but not when its a brand new database. ##

    Maybe it could be that MediaPress thinks it’s on a User Profile page, to show relative links, but its actually not.

    Hi Abe,
    is there any chance that you have a filter on ‘mpp_get_gallery_permalink’ or ‘get_permalink’.

    It seems one of the above is return empty for non logged in user.

    I can only troubleshoot on the site, so if you can provide me a temporary admin account, I can quickly check the issue.

    Thank you
