Threaded Replies Don't Work (Reply Button does nothing)

Hi there,

I have BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG enabled and thus am using Buddypress across my network.

On this site, when you click 'reply' to a comment the browser window moves but no message box appears to type in.

However, on a different site (one displaying the same content from that group) it works just fine. For instance:

I've tried deactivating plugins to no avail which leads me to believe it might be a theme related issue.

Is there any way to find out what might be causing this?

    Hi @davejmason,

    I just took a look at your site, and we're getting this error in the console.

    Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'live'

    The "live" function in jQuery has been removed in a recent version. So your theme is loading it's own version of jQuery, which is actually a bit too new for many plugins. All of our plugins will work just fine with the version of jQuery that is included with Wordpress by default.

    Wordpress 3.6 will include a more recent jQuery version, and by the time it's released we'll have all of our plugins updated to support that version.

    Regardless, a theme loading it's own version can cause many issues with other plugins and really should be avoided. Do you know if there's a setting with your theme to use the built in Wordpress version?

    Thanks for being a WPMU DEV member. Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
    Best regards,

    Hi Alex, thanks for the reply you hit the nail on the head with that one. I pasted your message to the theme developer and he's releasing a fix for the issue in the next release. It's all good and working now.

    Thanks again! :slight_smile:
