#3046 new enhancement

bbPress 2.5.12 is sending out emails to subscribed blocked users

Reported by: casiepa's profile casiepa Owned by:
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.5
Component: API - Subscriptions Keywords: needs-patch needs-unit-tests


When users get the 'blocked' role, they do not get unsubscribed from forums (ok, could be fine because you don't want to resubscribe if they get reinstated), but they are still getting emails on new topics and that does not seem very logical.

I have added the following filter for now in my bbP Toolkit to avoid this issue, but I think it should be added to the basic functionalities.

// Blocked users should NOT get an email to subscribed topics
function bbptoolkit_fltr_get_forum_subscribers( $user_ids ) {
        if (!empty( $user_ids ) ) {
                $new_user_ids = array();
                foreach ($user_ids as $uid) {
                        if (bbp_get_user_role($uid) != 'bbp_blocked') {
                                $new_user_ids[] = $uid;
                return $new_user_ids;
        } else {
                return $user_ids;
// add the filter 
add_filter( 'bbp_forum_subscription_user_ids', 'bbptoolkit_fltr_get_forum_subscribers', 10, 1 );
