#2599 new defect

Group forum visibility doesn't seem to change along with group visibility change.

Reported by: jreeve Owned by:
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.5.3
Component: Extend - BuddyPress Keywords:


It seems like the visibility of group forums (handled by the bbpress extension for buddypress) should change along with the group visibility. We had several hidden groups staged to be public groups, but when we made them public, we noticed that their associated forums were still hidden. The "forum" button still exists in the group sidebar tabs, but when the user clicks "forum," he is incorrectly informed that the group doesn't have a forum.

To reproduce:

  1. Create a hidden buddypress group and make an associated group forum.
  2. Change the visibility of the group to "public."
  3. Notice that the group forum visibility does not also change.

Also, even more disturbingly, after changing the visibility of a group, some group forums report that there are three topics in the forum, then (on the same page), report that there are no topics in the forum. Removing and readding the forum in the admin tab fixes this issue.

  • Component changed from General to BuddyPress

Running the bbPress repair tool "Recalculate private and hidden forums" should resolve this issue also instead of recreating the forum. Will need to investigate why BuddyPress is currently doing this, the functionality was added in r5017 to support this.

Still unsure what to do about this...

On the bbPress side we can add bbp_form_forum_visibility_dropdown() to the 'Group Forum Settings' per the mockup image below or something on the BuddyPress side if possible.
