Potential Problem with bbp_get_displayed_user_field()

Reported by: mordauk's profile mordauk Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.2.2
Component: Component - Users Keywords:


I noticed some really strange behavior today with the bbp_get_displayed_user_field() function.

  1. I went to profile edit screen for one of my forum users to grab their email address
  1. I left the profile edit page
  1. I went to the profile edit screen for another (different) forum user to grab their email address
  1. The email field showed the email addressed for the first user that I accessed, but all other fields were correct
  1. I refreshed the page an the user's email field corrected itself to show the proper email for the user

I haven't dug into the issue too far, nor have I been able to consistent replicate the behavior, but I suspect it has to do with $bbp-displayed_user not getting updated 100% when profile screens are loaded.

If a refresh fixed it, then it's likely browser cache. The displayed_user variable is selectively, dynamically loaded when visiting a user's profile. It isn't persistent across multiple page loads.

If it was browser cache, wouldn't we have expected all fields to display from the previous user? In this case it was only the email field.
