Attempting to mark multiple new private messages as read to clear a notification, and though the background #fff9db disappears for those messages after doing so, when I refresh their state returns to being unread.

Might make sense to roll this into a larger conversation about notifications, which continue to confound.

Can you please give specific steps to reproduce? You mention notifications, but your note about "background" suggests that you're not reporting anything specific about notifications.

- Click on notifications dropdown in BP Admin Bar, "You have 3 new messages" link. Takes me to
- Check boxes next to three unread messages
- Click Mark as Read

This clears the yellow bg color for those messages, though not the "You have 3 new messages" notification.

When I refresh, the the yellow bg color returns.

Thanks - this helps me to understand what's going on. It sounds like it might be a BuddyPress bug. I'll investigate.

  • Status changed from New to Resolved

As I suspected, this is a BuddyPress bug.

I've put a hotfix into place for the Commons: We can remove this once BuddyPress has a fix.
