#2455 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

BBP_Walker_Reply::start_el() closes element too-early

Reported by: nikolovtmw's profile nikolov.tmw Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby

The start_el() function should NOT close the element that it's starting(as far as I'm aware).

This should be done by the end_el() function - since when you have multiple levels of content, you want the child elements to be nested under the parent element.

On top of that when you close an element twice - you get a mess of the HTML and there could be issues.

The simple solution is to simply remove the following code:

</<?php echo $tag ?>>

on line 399 in /includes/common/classes.php . I can provide the patch if necessary.
