We’re running CBox 184.108.40.206 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?
I can confirm this is a bug when the “Group Forum Default Tab” option is not selected under the CBOX admin dashboard’s “Settings” page.
We should make it so forum posting works regardless if that option is checked or not.
Can you create an issue on our GitHub Issues page?
Thanks for finding this bug!
