Checking against the 1st parameter in bp_notifications_get_notifications_for_user is deprecated. Use the 6th parameter instead.

// this gets the saved item id, compiles some data and then displays the notification
function custom_format_buddypress_notifications( $content, $item_id, $secondary_item_id, $total_items, $format = 'string', $action, $component ) {
	// New custom notifications
	if ( 'custom_action' === $action ) {
	
		$comment = get_comment( $item_id );
	
		$custom_title = $comment->comment_author . ' commented on the post ' . get_the_title( $comment->comment_post_ID );
		$custom_link  = get_comment_link( $comment );
		$custom_text = $comment->comment_author . ' commented on your post ' . get_the_title( $comment->comment_post_ID );
		// WordPress Toolbar
		if ( 'string' === $format ) {
			$return = apply_filters( 'custom_filter', '<a href="' . esc_url( $custom_link ) . '" title="' . esc_attr( $custom_title ) . '">' . esc_html( $custom_text ) . '</a>', $custom_text, $custom_link );

I am having trouble creating multiple notifications in this way, it appears that the formatting for the final custom notification is the only one that gets applied - has anyone else had this issue and how did you resolve?
