Yasuyuki Takeo showed me an issue that he encountered while attempting to demo messaging within the Social Networking plugin.
To reproduce this issue, we used the Digital Enterprise 7.0 bundle.
1. Unzip Digital Enterprise 7.0 bundle and deploy license
2. Start up the bundle and sign into firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Click Menu > Control Panel > Apps > Store
4. Sign into your Liferay account
5. Purchase IP Geocoder and Social Networking, then under Purchased, install those two portlets
6. Restart the server, sign in as email@example.com
7. Go to test's My Profile and Add > Applications > Social > Profile portlet
8. Create a new user (firstname.lastname@example.org)
9. On another browser, sign in as user2
10. Go to user2's My Profile, then Add > Applications > Social > Profile
11. On the browser where you are signed in as test, go into user2's profile (http://localhost:8080/web/user2), then under the Profile portlet, click + Connect
12. On the browser where you are signed in as user2, go into Menu > Notifications > Requests List, then confirm the connection.
13. On the browser where you are signed in as test, go back to user2's profile, then try to send user2 a message
A. UI issue. Styling is incorrect.
B. Unable to send message regardless of text/content--broken error message in place (your-request-failed-to-complete)
I was unable to test in Master (liferay-portal) as I did not know how to build the updated plugins for CE, and could not deploy the Marketplace apps.
