The Join Group button in Groups Directory page is missing after upgrade to v1.6

  • I am not sure if it’s a bug but I could not find any resources anywhere else, so I’m posting my problem here.

    After upgrading to v1.6, the Join Group & Leave Group have gone in Groups Directory page. I tried to activate/deactivate other plugins to see if it’s a plugin conflict. But it seems like admin-ajax.php is not working right since the button disappears in the next page. And it’s gone again after getting back on the first page.

    If anyone got a resolution for this problem and share it with me here, I really appreciate you in advance!

    Thanks!

    Could very well be that your theme has not been updated. Have you changed to bp-default theme to see if issue is corrected?

    @rgblog,

    I am running WP 3.4.2, BP 1.6 and I am able to both join and leave a group (thus, the buttons are visible and perform as designed).

    Thanks for a quick reply!

    Yes, my theme is actually BP-Default & my own child theme.
    The child theme has custom CSS (only changed the color scheme but the same layout) and a couple minor custom templates for pages.
    Anyone knows which template file is for the Groups Directory page??

    Thank you so much!!!

    OK, I’ve just tested BP 1.6.1 on WP 3.4.2 (BP Default theme) in my dev site.
    Yes, the same issue is still persistent!
    Also, I found an interesting post and I wonder if AJAX change is related with this issue…

    @rgblog,

    This is the extent of my understanding: groups/index.php is the file you’re asking for. In it, the groups-loop.php template is referenced. It’s that template that generates those “join” and “leave” buttons; specifically, the following action “bp_directory_groups_actions”. If I’ve mislead, someone jump in and correct me.

    @Quint

    Thank you again!
    I’m going to check that template file to see anything wrong!

    I’ve never had an option to join/leave groups in the group directory on any theme. Only when you click through to a group page can you join.

    Is there a plugin for this, I can’t find anything or am i misunderstanding this thread?

    @fpats Only plugin needed is BuddyPress. Join group button should be at Groups Directory page as well as in single group’s page. All’s well with BP Default theme. What theme are you using? Could be that you need to upgrade your theme or JS was not enqueued or something else.
