#4981 closed defect (fixed)

New users Subscriptions lists have misleading messages for Subscribed Forums and Topics

Reported by: garrett-eclipse Owned by: dd32
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Profiles Keywords:



I was on a fresh WP user and under their profile > Subscriptions there's the subscribed lists most when empty indicate 'You are not currently subscribed to any...'.

In the case of Subscribed Forums however the message is misleading;
"Oh, bother! No forums were found here."

Similar for Subscribed Topics it's message is;
"No topics found. Select another view or start a new post."

These should probably follow the convention of the other strings 'You are not currently subscribed to any...'.

Subscribed Forums should just be removed, since we don't allow people to subscribe to forums. Or we shouldn't anyway.

The reason for the difference is that the first two are native to bbPress while the last three are add-ons by the support forum specific plugins.

In 9474:

Support Forums: Bring in the default bbPress user-subscriptions.php template and strip out the "Subscribed Forums" logic, and change the notice logic for subscribed threads to match the rest of the UI.

Fixes #4981.

In 9475:

Support Forums: Remove the bbpress text domain from r9474.

In 9476:

Support Forums: Don't show user term subscriptions to other users.

This wasn't intentional, but it was possible to find another users term/plugin/theme subscriptions.
