 I'm currently working on a new buddypress theme using the default one for
 my client when I encounter this bug. Normally, when we create themes the
 sidebar usually follow after the content or geek speak after this action:

 <?php do_action( 'bp_member_header_actions' ); ?>

 I have a special need that I need to load the sidebar before the content
 or before the said action.

 Now, when I add members widget or groups widget under the said sidebar,
 the buttons ('add friend','public message','private message' are nowhere
 to be found. When I remove the said widgets, the buttons seems to appear
 normally now.

 I google for some threads related to my problem and found this
 [http://buddypress.org/support/topic/buddypress-1-8-issue/] to be helpful.
 With my initiative, I search for what has caused the bug, and it might be
 my theme.

 I ended up opening bp-core-classes.php, under the constructor, we can
 actually see what's going on. Now, I tested each conditional tags ( there
 are around 5 i think ) and see that the following code the cause of the

 // No button if you are the current user in a loop
 if ( true === $this->block_self && is_user_logged_in() &&
 bp_loggedin_user_id() === bp_get_member_user_id() )
 return false;

 I noticed that it checks for
 which is fairly confusing because we need to be login inorder to add
 friends, etc.

 I tried changing that line into:

 // No button if you are the current user in a loop
 if ( true === $this->block_self && !is_user_logged_in() &&
 bp_loggedin_user_id() === bp_get_member_user_id() )
 return false;

 and boom it works! :)

 I hope this is a real bug and not cause my buddypress to behave
 unexpectedly, although it was running smoothly since the last time I
 modified it (last week)..

 Hope this helps. Thank you so much.
