Tags not attached to Topics posted via Forum Directory unless by admin user [FIX INCLUDED]
To replicate log into your Buddypress site which is using Group Forums (not Site Wide Forums) as a subscriber (not an Admin) go to the Forums Directory (not a Group’s Forum page) and post a New Topic with some tags. You’ll see the tags are not saved.
Try the same, but posting the New Topic via the Group’s Forum Page and you’ll see the tags are saved.
This looks like it was patched 6 months ago, but I’ve opened /bp-groups/bp-groups-classes.php and can’t see the patch so maybe it was never merged in? Ticket below.
