Your system displays notifications if a very different format than mine:
These two notifications came in at the same time. The mentions notification correctly says “29 seconds” but the forum reply notification is offset by the time relative to UTC “6 hours.”
I suspect that you are seeing the same thing I am, but your system just says “some time ago” rather than saying 5 hours. I don’t know why the format difference. I *think* I’m using the standard BP formatting (unless the theme changes it). I’m running the newest BP 11.3.1.
Well, your notification says “some time ago.” If you just did it shouldn’t it say “just now” or something like that. My systems all say something like 20 minutes ago or 4 hours ago, but it appears that you are not configured to tell exactly how long it was?
I’d rather wait and see if you can try it, to make sure that it’s not something specific to my sites. Also I don’t know if it should be reported against bbPress or BuddyPress. It seems like the problem only happens when BP provides a notification for the bbP post. The forum times on bbP itself seem good (as far as I can tell). So I don’t know how to tell which plugin is in error.
I appreciate your advice on this. It took me a while to try it.
I have deleted basically all the content from buddypress/activity/post-form.php (in my child override directory). Now the file just looks like:
<?php /** * BuddyPress - Activity Post Form * * @package BuddyPress * @subpackage bp-legacy * @version 3.0.0 * */ ?>
This *appears* to work. Does that look right? I do need the closing ?> at the end, right?
The code appears to work on my test site. I updated the bbP ticket:
