My Commons activity blank
Hello, it seems that the My Commons streams may be acting up. When I first go there I can see All Activity, but toggling back and forth to Groups / Sites / etc I don't see anything (see attached), and I can't get back to All Activity being populated either. I just see the yellow error message. Sonja first noticed this, so it seems at to be at least somewhat widespread.

Issue is due in part to #13352. If you're interested in the cause, continue reading :)
When we switched out the older jQuery Cookie library for js-cookie, the
bp_get_cookies() function needed to be rewritten to use js-cookie's logic. I made a previous attempt at addressing this in https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/13352#note-9, however this did not account for an edge-case where a non-existing value could be passed.
filter value here: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/blob/ea215fb837088e4ad90f31e6422ade7446617e55/wp-content/themes/bp-nelo/_inc/global.js#L216. On the "My Commons" page, the activity dropdown filter is not rendered, so this value is
undefined. The previous cookie logic already took this into account, but not the rewritten version.
Should be fixed now. This is added as a hotfix on production. You might need to refresh the "My Commons" page or purge your browser cache if the fix is not working.
