We’re running CBox 188.8.131.52 with all plugins fully up to date.
A user reported that in a hidden group, users were unable to post new topics or reply to topics. I found that the issue only exists with the Commons-in-a-Box plugin active – with all the CBox-managed plugins active, I am able to post successfully.
From there traced it to the function override_the_permalink_with_group_permalink in frontend-bbpress.php : With the permalink overridden, the edit form posts to /groups/group-tag/ instead of /groups/group-tag/forum/ . I have no idea what is handling requests to /groups/group-tag/, but it seems it is far pickier about who it allows to post than /groups/group-tag/forum/ is.
I’ve worked around it for now by modifying the overridden permaling to tack “forum/” onto the end, but given the interwoven tenancies of WordPress, I’m guessing that might have consequences I don’t realize.
Does this sound like something I’ve overlooked in my settings, or a bug that I should report to the issue tracker?
