    Hi,

    We are currently using buddypress and i am trying to generate a notification when a post is published, i have got it to the point that the indicator is showing a notification as unread but when i view the notification there is no text/link

    The code i have used is :-

    // this is to add a fake component to BuddyPress. A registered component is needed to add notifications
    function custom_filter_notifications_get_registered_components( $component_names = array() ) {
        // Force $component_names to be an array
        if ( ! is_array( $component_names ) ) {
            $component_names = array();
        }
        // Add 'custom' component to registered components array
        array_push( $component_names, 'publishpost' );
        // Return component's with 'custom' appended
        return $component_names;
    }
    add_filter( 'bp_notifications_get_registered_components', 'custom_filter_notifications_get_registered_components' );
    
    // this hooks to post creation and saves the post id
    function bp_custom_add_notification( $post_id, $post ) {
            $post = get_post( $post_id );
            $author_id = $post->post_author;
            bp_notifications_add_notification( array(
                'user_id'           => $author_id,
                'item_id'           => $post_id,
                'component_name'    => 'publishpost',
                'component_action'  => 'publishpost_action',
                'date_notified'     => bp_core_current_time(),
                'is_new'            => 1,
            ) );   
    }
    add_action( 'publish_post', 'bp_custom_add_notification', 99, 2 );
    
    function custom_format_buddypress_notifications( $action, $item_id, $secondary_item_id, $total_items, $format = 'string' ) 
    {
    // New custom notifications
        if ( 'publishpost_action' === $action ) {
    
            $post = get_post( $item_id );
    
            $custom_title = $post->post_author . ' published a new post ' . get_the_title( $item_id );
            $custom_link  = get_permalink( $post );
            $custom_text = $post->post_author . ' published a new post ' . get_the_title( $item_id );
            // WordPress Toolbar
            if ( 'string' === $format ) {
                $return = apply_filters( 'publishpost_filter', '<a href="' . esc_url( $custom_link ) . '" title="' . esc_attr( $custom_title ) . '">' . esc_html( $custom_text ) . '</a>', $custom_text, $custom_link );
            // Deprecated BuddyBar
            } else {
                $return = apply_filters( 'publishpost_filter', array(
                    'text' => $custom_text,
                    'link' => $custom_link
                ), $custom_link, (int) $total_items, $custom_text, $custom_title );
            }
    
            return $return;
    
        }
    }
    add_filter( 'bp_notifications_get_notifications_for_user', 'custom_format_buddypress_notifications', 10, 5 );

    if anyone could help me resolve why there is no message showing it would be much appreciated

    Thanks

    Hi Hayleigh,
    Thank you for asking.
    Most probably you are putting the code in your theme’s functions.php or similar?

    For me, your code did work. I have put it in wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thanks for your reply, i have now moved the above code to wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php and removed from the functions.php file of my theme. Unfortunately when i publish a post it generates the notification but the notification description is still blank. Is there something else missing or have i not coded the description properly?

    thanks

    Hi Hayleigh,
    That’s strange. I am not sure what might be causing it.

    Here is what I see

    Hi,

    This is what my back end database shows

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/0lvwzti5opwmemw/DBNotofocations.PNG?dl=0

    its almost like it doesn’t know what text to use to match the publishpost_action, am i supposed to have put this in the database somewhere?

    could it be this bit isn’t working?
    if ( 'publishpost_action' === $action ) {

    Thanks

    Hi Hayleigh,
    The screenshot I shared was from the notifications created by your code and as you may see, It was working.

    My suggestion will be to try your code on a clean install of BuddyPress(with default theme) and see if it works. If it does, you can troubleshoot your setup by changing theme and deactivating plugins.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    The followig line in your code

    
    		// WordPress Toolbar
    		if ( 'string' === $format ) {
    			$return = apply_filters( 'publishpost_filter', '<a href="' . esc_url( $custom_link ) . '" title="' . esc_attr( $custom_title ) . '">' . esc_html( $custom_text ) . '</a>', $custom_text, $custom_link );
    			// Deprecated BuddyBar
    		} else {
    			$return = apply_filters( 'publishpost_filter', array(
    				'text' => $custom_text,
    				'link' => $custom_link
    			), $custom_link, (int) $total_items, $custom_text, $custom_title );
    		}
    

    Tells BuddyPress what to show.
