Groups: Are replies not suppose to be visible?

    I’m testing out Groups.
    Noticed that if I reply to a Topic, it’s only visible to me being logged-in. While the topic is shown to non-logged in users, replies aren’t. I’ve set the Group to be public.

    Is it suppose to be like this? I’ve tried with and without a forum attached.

    Logged-in:
    LOGGED IN

    Logged-out:
    LOGGED OUT

    Comments in all activity streams, including groups are not visible to the non-logged-in.

    You can change that, but it will change it for all activity streams.

    You need to create a template overload of this file:
    \bp-templates\bp-legacy\buddypress\activity\entry.php

    And then make your changes starting at ~Line 88.
    Do not simply remove is_user_logged_in(). If you do, non-logged-in people will be able to comment!

    Thanks for the answer @shanebp
    I don’t see the purpose though, why keep replies hidden? Do you know the reason behind it?

    “why” is sometimes a complex question… in your case i think, ajax handling of comment and topic ID’s. FYI you probably have to search on Trac for some devs point of views about “replies” or “group activity”.

    For example (but not direct answers)

    https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2587

    etc
