For some reason when I activate the BuddyPress Block Users I lose the ability to respond to messages. I can still send original messages to the same user, but when I click on one, I can only read and not reply. This site had never had it installed and nobody has implemented this function yet. I haven’t tried it so nobody is blocked yet, as I just installed and activated it. I can see the messages of the one test member friend I have set up on this site and send them a new message, but if I try to respond to that one or any old ones, the “send reply” button just does not do anything. It doesn’t indicate anything’s blocked. If I deactivate Block Users, I can reply to conversations fine again. I didn’t uninstall everything to see if it’s a particular combination of plugins with this one, I just uninstalled the most recent things I’d activated until it started working again, and tested activating and deactivating Block Users to verify when I activate that one (on top of my current config) is when the quirk kicks in. Do you know what may be happening or what troubleshooting steps I can take without having to uninstall all my other current plugins to see what it may be interacting with? I checked the console and the only new error that pops up when Block Users is enabled and I click “Send Reply” is:
[Error] Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) (admin-ajax.php, line 0)
Do you know where I’d start?
Sorry for the inconvenience. Interval server error 500 occurred when something went wrong on the server-side. Please enable debug mode on your server and share the error log.
// Put this code before "That's all, stop editing! Happy publishing." // Set 'WP_DEBUG' to true. define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true ); define( 'WP_DISABLE_FATAL_ERROR_HANDLER', true );
You can locate the error log in the “wp-content/debug.log” file.
I apologize. I had email notifications checked and had been checking emails for a response but did not get any, and will check in case my spam filters ate the response. I just came back and saw this here. I moved that site to Better Messages, which is working just fine with Block Users enabled too. I don’t want to mess that site up since I have it working with Better Messages, and will test Block Users on a different site with debug enabled, and respond after testing to see if it happens on a new site with that config. It it happens again I’ll make sure the exact combination of plugins that was causing it this time too.
