Description

The news feed in our GC Digital Fellows Commons group had several messages today that said I had edited blog posts yesterday. It also sent out notifications to all admins of the blog that I had made edits. But I had not edited these posts. Laura Kane (who is also an admin for this blog) had made some changes, but we do not know why the changes showed up under my name instead of hers. Is this a bug?
Here's the blog URL: http://digitalfellows.commons.gc.cuny.edu/

Thanks,
Alice Lynn McMichael

Thanks for reporting, Alice Lynn.

Boone, here's the group associated with the blog in question: http://commons.gc.cuny.edu/groups/gc-digital-fellows/ You can see the activity items in the feed

Yes, it's a bug. The plugin that we use to keep track of blog posts associated with a group (bp-groupblog) doesn't account for the possibility that the person editing a blog post might be different from the original author when creating "x edited the blog post..." items for the activity stream. While I could fix that plugin so that it does so, it's not necessarily clear that the change would always be a good one - sometimes you might want the activity item to reflect the original author.

Indeed, I find the whole concept of putting "x edited the blog post..." items into the activity stream. This seems like noise to me, especially since items can be edited by many people. So, for our purposes, I've opted to disable these updates. https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/adfbc1bb54ba6d6326409fd891b44edb6c26cfed This will make sure we don't have further instances like this.

Alice Lynn, would you like me to change/remove the existing notification?

Agreed, especially since this is the second complaint we've heard related to this. Thanks, Boone.

I haven't heard anything from Alice Lynn, so I'm going to assume that the leftover notification is not too big a deal. Thanks for reporting the issue.
