[Resolved] Can’t Request Private Group Membership – You do not have access to this group
I couldn’t find anything on this which probably means it’s something small and dumb. This is a recent issue (within the last 48 hours) that could have been the result of a setting change or an update (sorry, don’t know which).
When a member hits “Request Membership” on a private group, the red error bar appears with “You do not have access to this group”. Being a member of the root site doesn’t help and I can’t find settings anywhere to change it.
I’ve backdated all plugins (including buddypress) to those on my staging server (where everything is working fine) and no luck. That would suggest this issue is in fact a settings blunder. I’ve also poked around in the source code and can’t find an obvious reason for the error to be appearing other than the user not being logged in but that wouldn’t make any sense.
Worth noting: On the broken site, “Request Membership” and “Join Group” buttons do not appear.
If you’d like to see what I mean for yourself, message me for test account access for my staging and production servers and I’ll provide it.
Thanks in advance!
