#2522 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

BBpress notficiation directing users to first post of topic, not the triggered notification post.

Reported by: ridecbrcom's profile ridecbrcom Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.5.3
Component: Extend - BuddyPress Keywords:


I got a request, and thought it was a good idea.. When someone posts or
replies to a topic, they get a notification when someone else posts.
When they click on this notification, they are transferred to the
bbpress post, but they are transferred to page one of the post.. rather
than the actual page of the notification.

Can it be changed so the link goes to the actual triggered topic post?

Here is the request from the member:

Something I noticed when I view the member activity and I click the link
for the thread it takes me to page one rather than the current post. Can
you make it go to the latest post or maybe even more specifically to the
post that is showing in the member activity thread? For example, cbr-f2
posted a pic challenge. When I click the link above that says

"cbr-f2 replied to the topic XXXX in the forum Member Clubhouse 56 minutes ago"

and I click the link: "XXX"

it then takes me to the first page of the pic game so I have to click
the last page to see his post. I hope that makes sense.

It already works the way you are requesting :) Take this as an example:

"cbr-f2 replied to the topic My F2 Builds in the forum Member Build Threads 1 hour, 10 minutes ago"

This has 4 URL's

So that last link is the one you want to click on, maybe some CSS tweaks to your theme would highlight that a little clearer so your member (and yourself) know that that is a clickable link.

  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Okay so here is the perfect example..

"My F2 Builds" when it has a reply, will send a notification to the author.

The author then clicks on ​the link and is directed to ​

I would like them directed to ​ or whatever the last post is, that caused the notification.

Does that make sense?

My links above are ACTUAL links from your forum, I just swapped your domain name for

As I said it could do with some styling that would make it a little more obvious that if you click "2 hours, 59 minutes ago" it will take you directly to the reply id #53983 on page 5, exactly what you have requested.

Now, just re-reading your issue again, am I reading it wrong?

Are you actually referring to the link that comes in the reply notification (rather than what I show in the screenshot above)?

Okay, thank you, that makes more sense. I appreciate it.

Now, is there a way to make "My F2 Builds" link to the same as "2 hours, 59 minutes ago"?

You would need to look at the BuddyBoss template that handles this and make the changes yourself or a shoot them an email/support request.
